Sliding window screen install

I'm sure this has been covered but I don't have time to search for it. Our '75 Argosy MH came with a loose framed screen for the curb side dinette windows. What is the trick to install it without destroying the frame?

We're camping this weekend in a park without hook-ups.

thanks.

If the build is the same as my89 345, at either side of lower track is a plastic channel. There should be a small screw to each side. Remove the screws and the channel should slide out. This then leaves you enough room to remove the frame and replace the screen. Be sure to get new spline at this time or you will be removing it again. Good luck!

I'll have to check it at lunch but I don't remember seeing what you're describing. The frame/track it slides in it continuous, the full peremiter of the window. thanks.

The window slides in the outer track, the screen slides in the inner track.

thanks.

Use a 287 pound 4 3/4 ounce sledge hammer.

Seriously, flex the screen carefully, and then have a cool one.

I'll try again. The glass behind it limits how much it will flex, on the forward edge anyway.

thanks.

Your correct, none-the-less, that's how it's done.

Be patient.
