Never had a problem. Are you traveling with it down or up? Mine are always up.

Ours are generally Up when traveling and we're got about 35K miles on the RW, including traveling the "Top of the World Highway" from the Yukon into Alaska and the shade is still up and functioning.

Mine has broke on a 39 mb. If you hold it with your hands where the brackets connect, you will see there is a lot of flex in the aluminum chassis that holds the blinds. I did not feel like 2 brackets could withstand the flexing from the bounce that our roads provide. You could remedy this by having a center bracket. I repaired mine by fastening it directly to the cabinet above with self tapping screws. Careful not to get the screw into the blind when fully retracted. Let me know if you want detailed instructions.

Dave.....after reading about all the problems folks have had with the newer blinds, I think I am glad we have the original style day/night shades. Ours have been problem free.

IMHO -
The key to the old and new blinds is when towing or in storage put them up....

the old folding blinds stay creased this way and it's less strain on the strings...
the newer blinds are glued on the rollers and if left down too far will fall off... especially in the heat

I've never traveled with my blinds up, my blinds are almost always down.
