Blinds

We recently changed all our day night shades to aluminum blinds. My question is for those who may have similar blinds. When travelling do you leave them down hooked at the bottom or do you pull them all the way to the top?

Our 2980RL had venetian blinds ... we left them hooked down and closed for travel except for the large rear window which we pulled to the top. The rear of any RV is where the most movement of things happen.

Thanks for the input. That's what I was planning on doing.

We have wood blinds and I just leave them all down, but we don't travel very far.

Well we had a different experience. Our mini blinds were in great shape when we got the RV in October. Ater the first three times taking it out we realized how much damage the recliners had done to the blinds, so now we raise them and get them out of the way when traveling. Learned the hard way.

Interesting on how people have different opinions. We have wooden blinds in our 353RL but my wife wants the day - night blinds.

Where can we find replacement blinds? Suggestions appreciated!
