RV Window Replacement-Rescreen W/Permanent Splined

RV Screen Removal:

Remove all the clamp ring screws and take the RV or Motor Home window out of the wall.  Working with the RV window on a flat surface, loosen the screen spline at a corner using long nose pliers.  The spline will come out in pieces.  You will need new spline of like diameter, available from home centers or glass shops.  The damaged screen mesh will then pull out easily.

RV New Screen Installation:

Cut a piece of screen mesh about two inches larger that the maximum screened area.  Center it over the area to be screened.  Using the new spline and a narrow wheel screen roller, spline the screen into the screen mullion.  Keep adequate tension on the screen mesh as you go, but make sure not to cut the mesh with the roller.  After the straight section is in, start working around the remainder of the frame.  Do not stretch the spline.  If the screen begins to bunch or distort, you can pull the spline out and start over, as long as you have not damaged the mesh.  If possible, keep the screen mesh square in the frame.  That is, do not let the weave of the mesh angle up on a side.  After you are finished, check that the tension on the screen mesh is satisfactory.  After insuring that you have not damaged the RV window flange seal, re-install the window in the hole.  If the flange seal must be replaced, there are several good window sealant on the market.  If using a liquid sealant, choose on that will not harden or become brittle.  If using a foam tape, choose the closed cell type, and be sure it will compress adequately to allow proper clamp ring installation.  Follow package directions if new sealant is needed.
