Installing is not complicated. Screw mounting clips to under cabinet and
snap shade bracket into clips. That's it.
Maybe the inside of the top valance may have to be trimmed back after you
remove it. Ours did not need any trimming.
Maybe the underside of the cabinet you are mounting your shade clips to, is
not parallel to the window ledge, so a washer may be needed to level out the
clips. Our cabinets did not need any shimming.
Maybe you would like to have the privacy shade roll closer to the window so
you will have full use of the window ledge. We did that. This must be
decided before shades are ordered.
I would recommend the reverse. Install the first shade yourself and see if
want to complete the job and do the rest.
Generally a coach owner will be able to always do a better job, but it takes
your time. Otherwise it takes your money if someone else installs.
If your under cabinet mounting space is way up behind a cabinet as in some
slide-outs it takes some manual dexterity.
We don't have slides and each mounting was straight forward.
MCD gave us screws to mount brackets and we did all the windows ourselves.
We also glued the plastic rail on the glass for the front inside screen.
We measured each window ourselves and compared it to their measurements.
Because we finally decided to leave off our side valances to make the inside
look more open, we could make the shades wider, which allowed the shade to
extend outside the window frame.
We requested a sun screen to be fitted to the inside of the door window
frame rather than the outer frame edge.
For our single privacy shade for the door, we decided to make it a little
wider on the left side and wanted to be sure it fit behind our wood door
handle on the right side.
Our bedroom came with traverse rod drapes and no side valances. We decided
to install MCD Duo shades (both sun & privacy) and mounted them behind the
drapes. We extended the drape rods to give a little more space between wall
MCD shades are one of most important modifications we have made to our
motorhome. Greater privacy, sun heat rejection, security. We can see from
inside to outside all the time while keeping our cool.
