Re: day/nite shades Am taking my Irvine Day/Nite shades in for cleaning and have some info fow whoever is interested. Have a 1999 Thor Komfort 26F with nine shades of various sizes and am doing the whole thing at once. Some points I have learned: 1- All the screws on my valances are US#2 which makes it somewhat easy to get out with a Skil driver and extension bit, had no problem here. 2- Once the valances have been removed the best (make that the ONLY) way of getting the blind racks off the window is to loosen (unhook)the spools from the wall and bend the rack up in front, they pop right off the clamps. (WARNING: DO NOT try to take them off without loosening the spools, the clamps will break before the racks pop). 3- I found the best way of holding the blinds up was by putting rubber bands around them, does a real good job. UNTIE the string ends from the spools and try to maintain the same lengths on both ends, it will save grief when you reinstall them. 4- The best place to get them cleaned is thru either private service or dirtyblindman.com recommendations. The best price we got was a flat $12.50 a drape and it is taking about five days, total cost was around $130.00 which included repair on two of the blinds. 6- We are reinstalled the blinds ourselves after contacting Irvine Blind and getting six of those plastic spools along with a dozen of the end plugs, they came off and were somehow lost. Irvine is also sending us instructions on re- threading along with a quantity of thread they included, all at no cost! 7- This is a ton cheaper than taking them in to an RV repair facility, best price we got there was $420 for all nine drapes.
