Seem to have developed a tear in one of the fly screens. Anyone know if they can be repaired? I was looking around my local dealer the other day and they seem to only supply a very heavy type of netting, not at all similar to the lightweight net fitted as standard to the blind.
If the tear is near the bottom edge of the blind, you can take it apart, turn it upside down and re-install it. The tear is then at the top in the middle of the roll and as the blinds are usually a little long, it may be still on the roll!
I did this with a blind and it worked well. I did put a little tape on the tear, but it stays in the roll and cant be seen
If it is in the middle, then there is not much can be done other than keep looking for the right netting!
Sorry that I cant be of more help,
...Just trying to keep the kids amused!

"Caradad, Thankyou for the advice. the tear is at the bottom, near the metal pull down bit. Any advice on how the things come to bits after removal?"
It depends upon the age and make of the blind. Some had a slot in the top roller, others were stuck on with double sided tape.
Once you have removed the blind from the 'van. carefully remove the hooks from the bottom rail. The net should just slide out. The roller can be removed by easing it to one side and popping out the plastic tensioners. Turn the net around and re-assemble.
O'Leary Motorhomes have loads of blinds and flyscreens in stock - if you can persuade them did find the right one for you.
