Default Replacement pleated day/night window shades?

Does anyone know of a supplier / vendor for the narrow pleated day/night shades used in later HiLo's?

We need to replace five of the six shades in our 2307C - the shades currently in the trailer are original, with 5/8" (15 mm) wide pleats - so far I have not been able to find anyone who offers this type of shade with pleats narrower than 1".

The issue with the current (original) shades is that the pleats no longer fold properly, making it nearly impossible to put the shades all the way up. We've tried adding tension on the guide cords, and have also removed the shades, forced them into a fully collapsed position and clamped them for several days, but as soon as pressure is released, the pleats open back up (especially those in the thicker "night" section).

Default Getting shades

I spoke with J&R at the repair place in Ohio. He said the shades have a code # on them and he would be able to see if the original supplier can get them. This is your best bet.

Thanks - that's good information.
I've got one of the shades out of the trailer in front of me, and they're right - it has a sticker on the top rail with that info on it (what I assume is sizing - 33x24, production date 3/30/07, colors linen / opal / taupe, and what I presume is the production code - RAG 65794SO).

I'll forward the info on to J&R and see what they can come up with.
