    hi one of my blinds seems to have lost its tension, could anyone help please as to how i repair this. The blind seems to only return up about 3" off fully enclosed.

    Hi I think if you remove the blind and hold the end with the spring with a pair of pliers and rotate you can re-tension the spring. I haven't tried it myself yet though!

    I did that on my old Hymer, fairly easy to do and it worked.

    This is going to be one of those threads that in months to come, when you need the information, you can't for the life of you remember where you saw it.
