Re: new sceen door...

Another Idea is to put fridge magnets on back to back. They stick well and look cool... 8)
you can collect them on road trips. Put some down low for pets and youngsters...

Except that magnets wouldn't roll up happily in the housing that the screen goes into!!!!!

Re: new sceen door...

oops, I didn't relize they rolled up.
I don't pick up my new 17'-B for 3 more weeks. Lots of new things to try out and test.
Thanks for the info.

Re: new sceen door...

Hi: Devil Dog... The screen door is like a Mirage style door. The tube is fixed to one side of the frame and the roller/screen pulls out of it. They are very light weight and take up little space. A couple of strands of coloured yarn looped thru the screen will let you know its closed.

Re: new sceen door...

At the fgrv rally last year, I saw the thread remedy. It was well done and looked nice. It is amazing how well the door goes back together, as if nothing happened, after a "run through".

Not saying how I know, but I can attest to this too.

...as can I.

I'm going with the spray-painted marking for the door. I'm thinking it should read "Open the door before exiting" in bright orange day-glow paint.

Re: new sceen door...

I would caution painting the screen. You won't know if the paint will melt the mesh or make it brittle.

Maybe some thin vinyl stickers from the dollar store would be something to try and see if they'll roll up. Like big spiders or dragonflies. Just for fun.

Re: new sceen door...

Good advice regarding the solvents in the paint. Vinyl stickers will probably roll off as the screen furls, so I may just have to train myself to look before exiting. Based upon my life experience and track record, that should take me at least 4 "fails" before I actually learn the lesson.
