Dave, when the screen door affects sales, I promise they will see about a change.

If sales slow, perhaps the owner’s voices will be heard.

Here’s an exchange that I had with iRV2 member Dfreiberger on a different thread (What was the last thing you bought for your RV ?) where he suggests that ’19 Tiffens have a “flapper lever on the screen door that allows you to open the screen door without having to slide open the plexiglas panel.

Nice and convenient. In order to do it, I had to order it from PTL doors who is the door manufacturer. I also ordered a pull handle which attaches to the main door so you do not have to close the door with the open/close lever. Two great features

Thanks.

Take care,

It took me about 10 days to get them.
I didn't follow up any further, but, perhaps this is a start to get you on the path to a solution.

Take care,

The same door latch goes back to the 2000 Travel Supreme's that I know of, and it still has not been changed. We are not yelling loud enough

PTL Engineering

We purchased this solution from PTL Engineering that manufactures the screen door for Entegra. The cost is $60.00 plus shipping. This includes the slider window and the lever installed.

In fairness to Entegra, Coach builders are, for a majority the work, kit builders using the same parts every other manufacturer is using. It is an issue of available designs. Lippert has a latch release I’ve seen used on lesser coaches. I like Tommy’s design as it is not dependent on the size of the clear plastic panel.

Tommy, I’d really enjoy seeing your hobby shop. Has to be one hell of a Man Cave. Oh, I second a previous post. You should be taking it easy buddy. Sitting back, feet up and letting that amazing wife of yours take care of. We all want Tommy around for a long time.

I made all of my door release and installed it on the old door. The PTL opener is a NEW screen door with the release installed.

Anyone interested in ordering this mod, please email NDaoust@ptlengineering.com request an acrylic slider with flipper handle. She will send you a diagram to fill out which is for the screen door. I would suggest that you advise her of the Make Model and year of your motorhome in your initial email.

Here is a link to the installation of the acrylic slider. It shows standard slider, but the one with the flipper is the same.

Has anyone replaced all the screens in their door with acrylic or plexiglas panels? We would like to keep exterior door open during hot weather and not let the cooler air out.
Thanks

Yes, Dave, DSL417 had it done. I believe he did a photo post as well. Screen Door on Anthem


Found it, this one and the post below it. Tell others about your modifications
