I'd like to replace the bug screen on my main door.  Kinda puzzled on how to go about it.  Being repair challenged - any advice from folks who have done that?

 

Thanks,

Google RV screen door repair and you will find lots of DIY videos.

it's like repairing a screen at home, one of our dogs tore up the screen on the Casita door, we replaced the screen and then put a heavy wire mesh over the inside of the door.

 

go to any of the big box stores or a local hardware store, you will need the little tool that looks like a tiny pizza cutter, some screen material which comes in a roll and the rubber spine material that secures the screen material to the frame.

 

here is a kit found on Amazon with way more screen material than you would need, but it will give you an idea of what you will need.

Lots of glass shops re screen doors and windows, remove the screen door and take it to them.
