Always up when traveling an up when camping. Only put down when not using or if we have a hot day and the sun needs to be blocked out of a particular part of the MH.

Up when camping or in tow. Down in between trips. Saw wear on the paint of the window seal when they were being put down for tow

For us, the best place for them was in the trash. Replaced all of them with venetian blinds. We hated them in both campers we had.

If it's those blame day/night shades you are referring to; I read somewhere to keep the shades up while traveling to keep the pleats pressed.

I'm with OC, when they start giving us problems, they will get filled in the round bin.

But to answer the question whether up/down:

I say leave them up-all the time. If the neighbors don't like seeing me in my underwear, they shouldn't be looking.

But the BOSS wants them down at night, so they're down at night.

But will be down to block the sun/heat during the day too.

I do leave them up when camping. Figure they will only look once. LOL. If they look more than once they need alot of help
