I concur. According to the official Escape Trailer Industries check list - "Blinds secure".
I've always pulled them down to the bottom, but now I realize that I really don't know what "secure" is.
I don't think it matters at all.
What are they going to do? Open the fridge and drink my beer?

Hi: gbaglo... If you cross the border with the blinds closed "They" might think you're smuggling a trailer full of aliens into their country. Or worse yet... too much strong Canadian beer!!! Alf

We always travel with them down. You get the nosy lookie-lous in the ferry line-ups otherwise! Those nose marks are a bugger to get off.........

Yeah, just not something I ever worried about. I imagine ours are in the same state of closed as yours.

Christine, could the nose marks possibly be on the inside from the good lookin' furkid in your user photo?

Oh, the inside? That's a whole other thing. But to be fair to her, I never have to worry about condensation on the dinette windows!
We were inside the 5.0 once in a ferry line up when a couple stuck their noses to the windows. I guess they didn't see us soon enough through the tinted glass. They looked a bit shaken when Minnie (the Springer) put her nose to theirs on the inside and barked
