Sunseeker 2300 kitchen window screen

Hi there🙂 Wondering if anyone can tell me how to take the kitchen window screen out and then put it back in-Sunseeker 2300. We popped the screen out easily, but putting it back in was problematic and I don't want to damage the screen the next time.

Thanks for your help!

I had to replace our overhead bunk screen and agree... pretty easy to pop out the frame but getting it in took some patience and gentle wrestling. Good luck. Hopefully someone can chime with more specifics for you.

Thanks Docsdad! I'm hoping one of the FR reps can chime in with some assistance. I would like to periodically take this screen and the others out to clean the inside of the windows.

I'm curious, how did you get them out? Wanted to clean my screens and couldn't get the out. Seemed very tight and worried that I would break them.

Hi Wandering,

We got the screen out by playing around with it and it popped out. Putting it back in was the challenging part. We tried to be as gentle as we could but the channel ends up bending. I would probably only be able to do this 2-3 more times before something breaks. It seems like a very bad design. Hopefully someone on the forum has some ideas about how to tackle this issue🙏

RV Screens

Be careful when you play with RV screens. I pulled three large screens from my 2008 Sunseeker because they were showing signs of wear. Bought fresh screens from Lowes. Broke a couple of radius corners removing the screens. bought replacements from ParKin Accessories (apparently a HEHR dedicated place). After a lot of discussion on how to determine which size radius I had I bought 6 so I could replace any broken ones. Not bad $6.97 each. Started to replace the screens and found that non of the spline that I had or Lowes sold would fit (all too large). It was a weekend so I temporarily fixed one screen with dried up remnants of original spline and fixed the second one with Weed Wacker line (kind of ugly, it was red line). Called ParKin the following Monday and inquired about my spline problem. They confirmed that it was a special size apparently only used by HEHR. I told them I needed 20 feet. They said fine that will be $56.80 plus $8.00 shipping. No joke, that spline (the size of standard Weed Wacker line) costs $2.84 a foot. Strange what happens to prices when there's no competition.

Try putting the screen in the top rail first and then the bottom. I know window screen at home work that way. There may be some kind of spring in to keep window in while going down the road.

A dealer I talked to a couple of years ago,,, told me he would not allow his cleaning crew to remove the screens so they could clean the entire window,,, he said they could not replace then with out bending them !!! They should be spring loaded,,, but I am not sure they are ???

The kitchen screen isn't spring loaded, it just sits in a plastic track. I can see why the cleaning company wouldn't take them out, because overtime the track will break. Thanks for chiming in and trying to offer some help. It looks like I probably won't be able to clean the inside of the window😩😩
