I have 3 window with blinds. One by one, they have failed in their "rollup" ability.
I think I know how to fix them. Just having to take off all of the Valences seems like a lot of work.

Just wondering if this was typical for MCD Blinds? My BF is only 4-5 years old.
What happens? Does the "spring" weaken with time and use of blinds?
Does anybody else have this same problem?
Any words of wisdom?
Thanks.

Steve,
Mine are going up ever more slowly and when RV is cold inside, they need help. Manual says that an adjustment on one side will increase tension, but some half-hearted attempts to date have not been productive.
Valance (sp?) may need to be removed to really get to them.
