How Much String Do I Need? RV Edition

daynightshadeDetermining the thickness of the string you need for a blind repair is critical, but it is also helpful to determine how much string you need length-wise.

When repairing RV Day/Night shades, the formula for estimating the length of string you will need is:

2.5 x Width + Height = String length needed

(String length needed) x (number of strings in the shade) = Total amount of string needed

It’s fine to measure the window opening and not the shade. The shade won’t be larger than your window. Do not measure your old string, and cut the new strings the same length. The lengths never quite turn out right.
