Screen door removal on a Georgetown

I'm looking at installing plexi-glass or lexan panels in our screen door. We hate having the outer door closed when we're in our rig....feels closed in!

My rig is at the compound for the winter. Does anyone have access to their Georgetown that can confirm what style and how many screws are securring the hinges of the screen door to the motorhome?

A winter project is to do this modification before the camping season. For almost all of our camping, we wouldn't miss the ventilation from the screen door given all the other screens we can use if/when we aren't using the furnace or air conditioner.

Our TT came with full length tinted windows in the doors with a screen that open out at the bottom for fresh air . I am able to sit in my recliner and look outside. Love the views!

Ken I can check once I get home. I believe there are 3 hinges, but not sure if they are screwed or pop-riveted. I'll let you know later today.

Ok, Ken, on my 2007 there are 4 hinges. The screen door is held to each hinge with 2 Robertson head screws.

From these last two replies (Thanks guys) it sounds like FR is switching over to using Robertson screws in the assembly of some parts on their Georgetowns. They are much better fasteners than using Phillips head screws...........which we've all stripped over the years!

Anyone else that can confirm? It looks like it would just involve removing the screen door temporarily at two points fastened with 6 screws for my project.
