2103 Day/Night Sade Brackets

One of our day night shades fell down while we were traveling and it appears that the retainer plastic piece in the bracket has broken.
Are these brackets common on units that have the day night shades and can they be procured from a dealer? Or are they on Amazon?

most likely its made by Irvine shade, they had a run of bracket fail . I added one more clip to the heavy shades in my camper, never had a problem after that. I was out in Elkhart at Morryde and stopped by Irvine back in 2018 they were happy to provide me with clips.

I replace the broken brackets with new brackets that looked like they would also break... I followed advice I received here and used 2 zip ties per each bracket in a X pattern... With those zip ties wrapped around the mounting bar and the bracket, there is virtually no chance they fail...

Great suggestion…. Will definitely do that for my larger shades and the one that failed.
Thanks

There should be a brand name on the piece itself. We went right to the supplier in Elkhart area and they gave us a handful! I’m not home at the moment or I would check on the manufacturer of ours.

We ordered new brackets for our Redwood shades. The new ones we got were metal. Had 4 shades drop right after we got the fifth wheel. Now all are staying up.

Bought ours in Durango.

I have been able to identify the shades as being manufactured by Irvine Shade and Door. I reached out to the company but have not had a response.
Tried our local RV dealers but no luck with any of them.

The company we bought ours from was Tarpley RV in Durango. Ask for the metal ones. They will have to order.

Day Night Shade bracket

Thanks Ford Truck Guy for the great suggestion. I was able to get the valences off and secure the blinds to the brackets using two cable ties on each bracket. Worked as suggested.
This will need to be our fix until Iím able to get replacements from Irvine.
Thank you everyone else for the great information.

Your Welcome ! The folks at Irvine are easy to deal with.. They sent me brackets and also I needed some end caps which they shipped to me for free.. I believe the girl I spoke with was named Hope
