Broken blind

Postby edna » December 15th, 2009, 9:03 pm

I have a 1999 Challeneger. The other day I was opening a blind when it suddenly slipped out of my fingers and shot to the top. Now it refuses to latch in any position. Will I need a new blind and, if so, where can I get one from? Will it be easy to fit? All advice gratefully received.

Hi Edna, I suspect yo have broken the retainer tht fit in the end of the bottom alloy rail on your blind, they a peg on them that hooks into the cutouts on the blinds outer frame, you should be able to purchase some replacements from any good caravan dealer, be aware there are 2 or 3 differant types depending on the make of blind, also the inserts are handed.
