Curtain fell

One of my curtains fell, it looks like maybe a bracket broke, anyway it fell and I can't walk around in the buff. Now I have to figure out how to get the canopy down. I have to take camper back to the factory on the 14 of October, should I just wait, maybe they could show me how to fix it. I'm on my way to Bar Harbor. It's bad that DW won't be able to chase me in the camper,

Can't you simply look at how it was attached and reattach even if you have to be a bit creative? Doesn't exactly sound like rocket science to me.

In a situation like this I would cover the window with aluminum foil and tell her to put the track shoes back on.....

Let the factory fix it, it would be on their dime right?

No big deal to fix if you didn't break the plastic catches that hold the roller shades. There are 2 brackets attached to the wall that hold the shades. The valance attaches to the wall with 2 screws, one on each side. The valance sits on top of the brackets with a screw in each bracket that goe up into the valance. You need a long square drive bit for you power drill. Remove the valance first. My window assembly had the aluminum pop rivet break on one of the shade brackets. That caused the other bracket to break and the shades came down. New brackets from the factory now have steel rivets so I figure they've had it let go before. A quick fix is to drill out the pop rivet and put in a small screw and nut, but if the plastic part that locks the roller shades into the bracket, is broken, you are screwed. This is a problem for the wider windows.

Thanks you so much. That's what I needed. One bracket broke, one let go and the other one broke. Thanks again. We are going to the factory next month so I may wait until I get there so we can get the new brackets
