Next week ill order a single rolled night shade from Steves blinds. Hopefully ill be able to secure it well enough to work. This will be much better than the origibal pull down shade.

I sleep on that side and bump in to the valance a lot too, PIA! I may remove our valance if I ever get the coach back from service, supposed to call tomorrow! I let Myra sleep on the other side since she needs a step stool to get in the bed, needless to say she's vertically challenged! Good idea Jerry!!!

Maria is vertically challenged also. She has a step stool in the corner near the foot of the bed.

Finally got my survey from Thor, have had the coach for almost a full year now. Tried to give an honest evaluation and opinion of our coach. First was lack of quality control followed by poor tv's and other minor issues.

Our coach has been at the dealer since 4-15 waiting on warranty repairs that shouldn't take a tech more than one day, two at the most to complete. I called today and they're telling me maybe first week in June, the repairs haven't been started yet! I asked in my survey if that time frame was acceptable to Thor, I'll be curious to see if they respond. I can only imagine what would happen to the auto industry if repairs took 4-6 weeks. Guess I'm stuck waiting, little other choice!

The auto industry accepted poor quality control for years, foreign car makers jumped in and things changed quickly. Maybe Honda or Toyota need to start competing in the RV industry!
