Encouraged by the very helpful inputs I got from you all on this post, I returned to the trailer last week and was able to remove the screw in the end cap (the one that goes into the wall), using a screwdriver wrapped in a wet dishcloth. I have the paneled curtains fore and aft, so pinned a note on each set so I'd remember where they belonged. I washed them in washing machine on delicate cycle, cold water, with Persil and hung dry them. I ironed them on the silk setting and they looked crisper. There was a good-size spot that did not come out on one of the front panels (FBT config), the result of me killing a huge mosquito full of blood (my blood) against the drape last summer. Embroidering a hummingbird on top of it took care of that. I re-installed them yesterday. The front drapes fit beautifully. The rear panels slid on fine but I couldn't make the velcro tabs come together between two of the panels on bottom middle. There was something 'off' about the way the rear set looked. I thought there must have been shrinkage. Later, it came to me that I'd probably hung the rear set of curtains upside down. There was a lot of lufting or loose material at the top of the curtains when slid closed, but the bottom edge, even when pulled tight, the tabs couldn't reach each other. I think if I reinstall them with the top at the bottom, they will fit to accommodate the wider width at the bottom of the panoramic windows.

Peroxide... 💁🏽♀️

🤔 Next time, try hydrogen peroxide on blood stains. Works pretty well. The hummingbird is quite lovely. 🐦

The hummingbird is such a cute little surprise!

Yes, you likely have the curtains upside down.

I like your idea of wrapping the screwdriver in a wet dishcloth. That would have prevented the blister I got on my palm. Thanks for the tip!
