I used the link to buy a set of three, and replaced the drive wheels on both front drapes a few days ago. I did not find it necessary to pull the wheel.

Starting point after removing the cover was to pull one side of the cord forward while running the motor, which pulled the cord out immediately.

I scored the rubber tire slightly with a box knife, then used a small screwdriver to go under and lift the tire at that point, and then cut it all the way through for removal.

Putting the new tire on was fairly easy - press one side on and start rotating the wheels - basically just rolling the tire on. The cord goes back the way it came off - start it into one side, and run the motor to pull it into place.

Is the genny running or are you plugged in to shore power? The inverter is also a source for 110. Our drape switches are on each wall by the drapes and over the bed.

Sorry, i could not remember where i asked this ques. As of right now i am not on shore power, so i can start gen. or use bat. for the drapes. I unplugged the front drapes so i can replace the drive rubber wheels, but still have not seen a wall switch to open/close them. In the bed room i have not found the power units, they must be behind a non opening overhead panel. Did not notice any wall switch here ether. Above bed, no switch marked for drape. I have started a list, so that if i can make it to a meet, i can talk to people. I'm learning more, every time i get on WOG.
Thanks again for all the help. Rod

On my 94 the switches for the drapes were not located on a wall. They were under the overhanging cabinets in the kitchen and bedroom. Right beside the ThinLite fluorescent fixtures

Rodney,

Our living room drape switches are mounted into/ under the overhead cabinets, close to the drive motors. The bedroom drapes have two setst of switches, one by the flourescent switches and one behind a long door in the headboard (queen island configuration). The headboard switches also include a genny switch, the alarm clock, remote door lock, etc.

When you find them in your '85, post a pic. Chances are others will be looking for them as well.
