I love our "new" fiver, but I hate the window treatments! They do not match the decor at all! How can I remove them? Here is a picture:

I'm sure if you look underneath the treatment, you'll find some screws attaching it to the wall.

I've looked and can not find screws! I'm thinking maybe it's a slide on type of treatment, but I don't want to get forceful with it until I'm sure of what I am doing.

Maybe you can get in touch with your dealer or RV manufacturer.

Leave the blind down and see if the screw are thru the top of the blind. All the hardware was thru the blind in our old rig. Check to see if the blind has the little latch slide at the top. Usually all the hardware in attached to the cornice then the cornice is attached to the wall.

Try grabbing the sides of the valance where it meets the wall and try sliding it straight up. They may have slots cut into the end of the valance where it meets the wall but I doubt it. Get up on a stool and look down in the top side if there is no cover. Ours are attached with small brass wood screws that are easy yo get at. There's not much holding ours on.

We did this job on our first fifthwheel. Boy was it a big job. It had angle brackets that screwed to the wall. Hard to installed and take off. my wife recovered them but first I had to take about one million staples out to remove the fabic. Have fun. chevman

The screws holding the valance on my trailer were under the blind. Had to remove the blind to get to the screws. The blind is only held up by two screws. Hope this helps.

DW did not like the panels hanging down that covered the strings for the shades so we removed all of them. On one I had to do as N4ARW indicated and remove the blind to find the screws. In our case it was not angle brackets but screws into the overhead cabinet right above the window. Makes for a nice clean look - and no more fighting those "hangie things" to do the shades...

Be careful. A lot of the stuff on ours was screwed (or stapled) in from the outside! I ended up splitting the block that was screwed to the wall with a chisel (once I found where the screw was). Then breaking off the screw flush with the wall.
