The start of another week we were up early and had coffee, then Donna headed out to the truck company. Adam was up about 07:15am and hit the shower and then was off to school,
I then read blogs and about 10:30am my son brought my truck back so we headed to the RV Dealer. I wanted to see if they had a screen door guard, and a better slider for the screen door where you slide the little door open to unlatch it from the inside. The one our trailer came with is real thin and keeps popping out of the track, I have seen them in a clear or smoked plastic that looked like it was heavier constructed on several motor homes.
Anyway they had a nice aluminum mesh guard that looked like it was heavy enough to withstand a push by a paw and not damage the plastic screen material. We had a previous dog go completely through a screen on our first 5th wheel, when Donna picked up the fly swatter to swat a fly and the poor dog thought it was her turn to get it. The price $30 dollars. but after thinking about the last incident and how tough it was to find replacement screen while your out in the middle of nowhere and then having to custom cut and fit a commercial screen guard to fit on the old one. I said Okay. This way four hole were drilled and four sheet metal screws in the door frame later. I was finished with a nice looking job and I still can have air flow if I want. I originally thought of putting Plexiglas over the screen but that would have cut off the air flow. Total installation time about 10 minutes.
Here are the after pictures, no before's ,sorry.
Now all I have to do is wait to hear Adam come blasting into the house to announce. One more day of school. He will then want to bike ride until Grandma gets home and supper is ready.
Tomorrow I will probably take the trailer up to Lake Sherwood Campground for the rest of the week. That's about the only way to get a campsite on the Memorial Day weekend.
Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
