I have a 2003 Safari Cheetah with Carefree of Colorado windshield shades, both electric. When coming off the freeway I hit some bumps (have gone over the same ones for 13 years) and the passenger side shade fell off. The two plastic fittings theat hold the shade to the ceiling both broke. I called Carefree and they haven't made this model in years and no longer support the product. The numbers on the shade are: DT 4293; SN 2075514529 and PN QFO43MA36L. Does anyone know when I could find the two end cap attachment pieces? Thanks

Try doing a google search just putting a model # in the search box. Sometimes you can come up with old parts. Otherwise, maybe at an rv salvage place?

Problem with a lot of older plastic stuff like that is the 'new old stock' is just as deteriorated as what you have. You might want to consider making something out of metal to replace the fittings.

I needed an odd plastic part and I forget how I reached them, but Makarios RV sourced it for me. They directed me toa source and didn't even get a sale. I was amazed how helpful they were.

As noted above, perhaps time for some DIY Aluminum. Easy to work.

Got a picture?
