Storm door conversion

I may have missed this, but I have not seen a writeup about this mod. I have done this 10 or more times when I include friends rv's and my own.

Cut plexiglass to fit as inserts in your screen door. I buy at Lowes or Home Depot the .080 thickness, it is lite, and very clear. Also purchase screen retaining clips, and small sheet metal screws. Very easy to cut with a skill saw and a fine blade. You also can have them cut it for you.

Very nice if your in and out of the rv all day. Plus it allows more light in. Keeps your a/c or heated space comfy.

If your very committed to this, you can silicon them in place, however if you use the clips you can revert to a screen in just a few mins.

I'm glad you didn't waste a lot of space on a step by step, picture by picture, how to . Most of us get the idea with little prompting. Thanks. I really mean it.

I must be missing something??
How can adding plexiglass panels over the screen in a screen door allow more light in?
Wondering.

Then the outer door can be left open. But the AC can stay on.

If no storm door,we have to close the coach door, assuming your running the a/c or heat. Here in the south, not too many camping days with out a/c.

Take very specific accurate measures with you t Loews. They will do the Lexan cuts for free while you wait. I carefully sketched a to-scale drawing and was able to get all my sections cut from a single std size sheet.
