Window Blind on Vegas - Won't Stay Up

The window blinds on our Vegas lift up and stay up until we pull them back down.
Until our grandkids borrowed the RV for a few days.
Now one of the blinds does not stay up.
Has anyone had this happen?
And if so, how did you fix it?

On a previous RV we had those pleated shades. On each side the strings ran from the top of the shade down the side to an anchor point where the string wound around a spool. Adding more winds around the spool tightens up the shade and it stays where you put it better. Hope this helps.

Thank you!

When you tighten the strings, do both sides and run the blind up and down a couple times to "balance" the strings. Use small adjustments.

That makes sense!
Particularly the "small adjustments".
Thank you!

When adjusting the 2 sides, "strum" the string like a guitar string to achieve a similar "tone".

2 of our blinds were not staying up/broken when we purchased. This guys video gave us the answers on fixing the blinds. The blinds are a bit fiddly with the strings and such but one you've seen it apart and back together again it make more sense.
