Roller blind. Much better than the bulky curtains the manufacturer provides.
Im not sure I agree Peter.. The curtain is not so good, and a blind is certainly a great idea ..... but

We traveled with friends who had a New Age with a similar blind and the constant banging of that damn chain on the door was absolutely painful ... and we were only camped next to them :(

Our chain has "tensioner" at the bottom. Stops the chain from rattling around.

Back to heater saga.....

Finally got a dometic agent. Theromstat is located too low on wall. Warm air outlet was bent into a nice "S" shape through the underbed storage divider. The cover over the heater was installed too low. The end result is a heater that overheats and turns off.

So a bit of work today and the warm air is now in a straight conduit and the cover is raised by 100mm. Hopefully this cures the issue.

The repairer installed a new thermostat and switch in a better location


Old outlet on the rhs, new one on lhs.

You can see the old hole for the outlet through the under bed divider. So the pipe did a fairly tight "S" bend to get to the old outlet.
