2016 Thor Vegas window blinds

What options are available to replace the factory installed blinds? I have had 2 give up in recent months. Are they worth repairing?

Haven't had any issues with my Vegas blinds. What is the problem with yours?

If I was replacing, I would start with recpro.com but they ain't cheap.

If you are going to the Tampa RV Supershow, there will probably be at least one vendor there with blinds. Of course there's always the big RV stores.

They will not stay up. I think strings are fouled up. The back window quit a few months ago, the one behind couch stopped staying up last race.

If the strings go slack, the shades will fail. Had to tighten and restring some of the shades in my last coach. The strings need to have tension.

The shades in our Vegas seem to be better. If they start to fail, I'll try to repair before I look for replacements.

Yep, they need to be tight. I found the shades/blinds in both our Axis and now Vegas to be pretty crap compared to other RV's we've had. Why don't Thor fit the 2 stage shades that have a day shade and a night time blackout ?? I've removed the bedroom shades and installed blackout roller blinds in our Vegas, sunrise here in N Ireland is at 4:00 am in July, no fun..... It was an easy job and means the bedroom can be dark in bright daylight.
