Easy fix - what took me so long!

I am not sure if your EB rear hatch privacy screen is the same as in our EB. But if you have had difficulty getting the roll up window screen pulls to easily roll up and down for privacy in a controlled manner (you know what I mean ...flap, flap fingers are not rally that ham fisted, right?)... had to fight getting the small pulls negotiated around the window latches ... then here is a tip that works for us.

Simply loosen or remove the nuts which hold the clamping ends of the window latch and rotate the metal ends 180 degrees. Now, when you go to pull down the privacy shade, your finger / hand are not obstructed by the window latching cams. Instead of latching towards the midline of the EB, now they will latch towards the outsides of the AS.

Duh, I don't know why they leave AS that way or why it took me so long to modify ours!

Wow, thank you. This has driven us nuts since we got our EB (only 6 mos ago). Just joined this forum and yours was the first post I read. As soon as I read it I went out to the airstream and fixed this problem immediately. I had the same reaction you did "Duh! Why didn't I think of this!" :-)
Thank you!
