    The OEM curtains were dirty. Decided Woolite would cause them to shrink so would pay the money and have them dry cleaned. They shrank. Some of the edges are frayed. Next time will invest in new curtains.

    Aliner owners beware.

    On the rear hinge apron I pulled with all my might over 2" to snap the two outer snaps only.

    Cant help with the shrinkage, but you can cut strips of fabric or weebing and add grommets to extend the snaps. If that helps or not, idk.

    Have you tried using Defy Damage by Downey?

    During our last trip to the lake, the curtain was splashed with liquid hand soap. I washed the curtain with other delicates and forgot to remove before placing into the dryer. We haven’t opened the trailer since to see if it shrunk. But if it did, then I’ll try the stuff from Downy.

    And if it doesn’t work, then it will be an opportunity to finally replace the faded curtains with a custom set made from Sunbrella fabric and black out curtains.

    Happy Camping...[ALPU][PUT]

    Too late <<GG>>

    They look like the button up shirt of a morbidly obese person.
