Window Shade Cord

I need to replace or repair the window shade cord on my Eagle. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Most RV shops sell repair kits for the shades. And I recall seeing a YouTube "how-to" on the topic.

Kinda on the same topic...

I have a shade that won't stay in the UP position. Push it all the way up and it falls down to about midway. ????????

You can buy a string repair kit from your dealers parts dept, or from CW, enough in kit for several fixes. There's (5) 20 foot strings, (3) springs, a bunch of plastic grommets, and anchors. The whole shade/valence assembly came off ours with two screws through angle brackets, the shade was two more screws into the valence, and it's in your hand. The kit has instructions for both the night shade, and day/night shade styles. Really not a complicated repair once you look at how it's put together. Just be careful removing the plastic end caps from the top and bottom, they can break easily. I had to buy a couple of new ones.

Had this happen, too. Loosen up the screw on the "spool" that the cord is on (either side, it doesn't matter) and turn it only a little to tighten up the cord, then tighten the mounting screw, and it should stay where you want it.

Look on either side at the bottom,where the strings are attached. All you need to do is tighten the string just a little on each side. Loosen the screw that holds the string and either wrap it once or move the spindle a little while you re-tighten.

Do not let it go while it is not attached!!!

You can get it too tight and make the shade hard to move you'll need to play with the tension.
