Screen door

Had friends over who just purchased a nice Class C. As I was showing them ours had only the screen door closed. As they went to leave my buddy accidentally tried to push door open via screen. Now he felt bad and we spent about an hour trying to get screen back in place, but was unsuccessful. Anyone know of a trick to get screen in track?

I went through this about a month ago and got frustrated, but I finally figured it out and got it looking like new.

You first have to feed the screen back into the roller at the top. Make sure that it feeds everything into the roller up to the clips. Then, you can start guiding it back down slowly where it fits into the guides/grooves on the left and right. After a couple of tries, I was able to roll it all the way to the bottom with each side in the grooves. I hope this makes sense.

Thanks

Tomkat is correct. That is the only way to fix the screen. It has to be rolled all the way to the top (onto the roll) and feed both sides when it is pulled back down. When unclipping and clipping the screen at the bottom be careful. The clips break easily. They are very brittal. Does anyone know where you can purchase the two clips that hold down the screen at the bottom?

We had a problem that the screen would continually come out of the track, the wind would even knock it out of the track. Ours has a rubber stop at the bottom of each side rail. I'd use a putty knife to push out the stop, then pull the screen all the way down, feed it back into the track with the putty knife, then roll all the way up and reinstall the stops.

I got sick of dealing with the roll up screen coming out of the track. Figured we would always be using it with the screen down so I installed a permanent screen in place. The outside of the door has the groves to install a screen (like the bottom section) and is easy to roll a section of screen in.

Also a good idea to spray a silicone lube on the edges once in a while.
