Screen Door Slide

My plastic screen door slide (P series type) cracked and I have it duct taped together. I'm having trouble finding a replacement that has enough depth to clear the lever type handle on my main door.
I assume that there are lots of RVs out there that have the lever handle versus the pull type handle on the RV door and that all of those would also require the extra depth on the screen door slide.
I can go to the RV manufacturer and pay 3 times what it's worth but I'm wondering if anyone knows where I might source a replacement.
Thanks!

There was another thread on this subject a few days ago. Take the broken one (or measurements) to a glass shop and get a piece of Lexan cut to fit.

If you don't want to have one custom made, you can also take a look at Amazon or Ebay and maybe luck out.

I do know that you can order from Amazon, or one of their vendors, a number of screen door sliders from a variety of manufacturers. Ebay will also have a similar selection. Have you looked at all the manufacturer's web sites to see if you can narrow down the exact replacement you need?

Here are the ones on Amazon:

Camco

Valterra

Dexter

Lippert

Atwood (this one fits many screen doors Winnebago uses and I'm sure some other manufacturers do too)

Valterra P-series on Ebay


What is the make and model of your motorhome? Do you know if your screen door is made by Atwood? ...or some other manufacturer?

Also, I did run into a post on another forum from somebody who was in the exact situation as you describe and what he did was to just purchase the one that fit the space and even though it wasn't deep enough to clear the handle, made sure he didn't shut the door when the slider was in the closed position. He made just had to remind himself to slide it to the open position whenever he wanted to shut the door.

My entry door was made by Hehr and has the lever on the inside. The slider is white on our screen door.

Thanks for this. It is about as close as I've ever gotten but not quite the right dimensions. Plus, the depth in mine is 1-5/8" versus the 1" in your example and that is the challenge!

That doesn't look like mine but it certainly appears to have the depth! Mine measures 11-3/4" high by 11-5/8" along the sliding edge.
If yours is close to that let me know.
Thanks!

Maritimer, did you ever find a resolve? I am in exactly the same predicament.
I ordered a clear Camco on Amazon but I can through that in the trash now....not enough depth for lever handle on door.

Anyone? Bueller?

The one pictured looks like a Midwest plastics #132082 01 03A about $11.00 to 13.00 bucks.
plus shipping
Good luck
TJ

I'm in the same boat. I finally wound up using a shallow one and cut a notch in it for the handle to stick through.

I had no idea it was going to be a pain to find a new one or I would have glued the original one back together.

I did get one. I tried everywhere and couldn't find the right combination of depth and size. Ended up getting one direct from the manufacturer (Triple E in Canada). Not the cheapest route but at least it's fixed.
For what it's worth the replacement has "Dexter" printed on it and fits perfectly.

i also had to order a new slider thanks to someone leaning on it and popped it out and cracked it. So I got the new one just like the one pictured in this thread but I cannot get it installed in the tracks. It will not bend enough to make the top and bottom go in the tracks. Can you please tell me how to get it installed? I tried taking the screws out of the top bar but that was useless.
Thanks, Peggy

Peggy,
You'll have to measure the opening, or the old slider and then carefully cut off the excess plastic from either the top or the bottom. I used a heavy tin snips to cut mine.

I had a heck of a time getting mine in too. All the mom's in the neighborhood took their kids inside until I got it done.

I like mevman's idea of filing it off a bit.

Pound to fit, paint to match is the old carpenters solution.
