Pat, can you give me a little more detail on how to reinstall the screen? I took mine out to clean the frame thinking, "how hard can it be?" Now I know ... Pretty hard. Where do yo along the clips and do you reinstall from inside or outside? Thanks!

Rich you install from inside . Kind of put one side in twisting just a little . The clips you see do not go in a grove they sit on the first ledge . You should see about at least 1/8 of the outside edge inside your trailer . The clips hold the screen tightly in the frame . Let me know if this helps ? Pat

Thanks, Pat. Gonna give it a try this afternoon and will let you know. I think it's like the awning; once you figure it out you say, "Oh, so THAT's how it works!" We'll see ...

When I say outside edge being inside your trailer , I am meaning the outside edge of your screen being inside trailer having about 1/8 of the frame edge showing in your trailer . The screen then is snapped tightly in the window frame . Pat
