Google: restringing day/night rv shades and look for the YouTube videos. You can get the string in a couple different diameters and buy a spool of it

I had to restring a couple of the day/night shades on my old RV. It was not that hard to do maybe the hardest part was figuring out how to remove the shade, so you have already done the hard part. As others have said search the internet and you will find much information on how this is done. I downloaded a PDF document that had very detailed information. The cord is pretty easy to find also, most sewing type stores will have this type of cord. Others have also used heavy monofilament fishing line and claim that works better.

They have all the parts. IF you cannot positively identify the exact color and diameter of the string, send them a short piece for ID. I did and they were receptive to the ID. They do have a chart/instructions to determine the string diameter by wrapping it X number of times around a pencil. They have instructions and it is very easy. Recommend you purchase the short piece of wire to pull the string. Makes it a very easy project. You will need to remove the shade from the wall and set on a flat/clean surface. e!
