  1. Determine if the shade or blind will mount outside the window frame onto the wall (Outside Mount) or if the shade or blind will be mounted inside the window frame (Inside Mount). Note: Most RV windows are Outside Mount.
  2. Outside Mount — Measure the width (across) of the area to be covered. Example: End of frame to end of frame plus 2” added for additional coverage. Inside Mount: Measure the exact opening size. The factory will make any necessary adjustments from your exact measurements to allow for inside clearance and ease of operation.
  3. Measure the length (drop) of area to be covered. Example: Top of frame to bottom of frame with an additional 2” for mounting above and below window.

United Shade will manufacture exactly the size you order. Take precautions with your measurements so entire window area is covered and allowances are made to assure a custom fit. If draperies or valances are already installed be sure your measurement for width allows the shade or blind to fit under the current window treatment.

Inside Mount Measuring Instructions

Inside mount shades and blinds are installed inside the window casing.

  • Measure the exact inside width of the window casing from left to right inside edge.
  • Measure the exact inside height of the window casing form top to bottom inside edge.
  • Do NOT take any deductions. Allowances are made at the factory to ensure fit.

Outside Mount Measuring Instructions

Outside mount shades and blinds are installed outside the window casing. The shade or blind will cover an area larger than the window itself.

  • Measure the exact width to be covered. Allow enough extra coverage to ensure proper light control and privacy
  • Measure the exact height to be covered. Allow for proper coverage.

Pleated Skylight Shades

  • Locate predrilled holes in headrail they are located on the underside of the headrail, behind the first fabric vpleat. The holes have plastic installation grommets.
  • Position headrail in skylight opening. Install screws through the headrail in the predrilled holes.
  • Push center rail up near top rail.
  • Push bottomrail down to bottom of opening, then install scews through predrilled holes.

Note: Bottom rail should hang approximately 1" short in free hang position (before installing bottom rail to opening). This is what creates the tension.

If the shade will not stay in up position after installation, it is the incorrect size for the opening.

Shades should be kept in the closed or up position when not in use, to maintain pleat retention and minimize dirt and soil build-up. Do not store shades in the down position. This may cause some loss of pleat retention if the shades are not operated on a consistent basis.

Shades can be easily cared for by simply dusting or using a vacuum cleaner attachment. Do not use spot remover, household cleaners or detergents to remove soiled spots,a s these may cause damage to fabric or loss of color from fading.

NOTE: If your recreational vehicle must be stored for an extended period of time, store shades in the up position and cover your windows with additional protection (I.E. Cut out cardboard).

What is the difference between Day fabric and Night fabric?
Day Fabrics = light woven fabric for sun filtering. (Deco only)
Night Fabrics = heavy woven fabric for sun blocking.

Can you see through the Night fabrics?
No, but you may be able to see shadows. For complete blockout, you may order a blockout liner (optional). Must specify were ordering. This option is addition to standard price.
