Window Screens

Going to put window tint on all my windows, well let me say try. DH says they already have some tint, but I want darker.

It's gonna be a real big job since most of the 5th is windows. All windows on back, large one over the sofa, 3 at table from ceiling to floor and think I've left out several.

My question.....how do I remove the window screens? I have looked real good and can't see how to slide or remove them.

Have an ideal / suggestion ??

Think this is going to be costly.

Thanks !

Hmmm good question. I don't have an answer, but the idea of window tinting was discussed by a few members a while ago. You might ask them.

PIA means Perfect Installation Always, by the way. It's Travel Trailer modification jargon.

I haven't done a TT but I have done several vehicles with that stuff you get at PEP BOYS. I would take my time, expect to waste some of the material, know that it will look better from the outside than the inside, and not try to get them all done in one day.

Off season is coming. You have all winter!

Went by my dealer Saturday regarding my screens. I have never laughed so hard. The owners son (22 years old, a friend of ours) took me to a Rockwood and oh he made a big mess. Bent the heck out of one removing it and the other one could not get it back in. He said, well just don't put them back on, while laughing.

Think I'm still gonna try, will remove a screen on one at the dinette (ceiling to floor) windows, cause I will never raise them in case I make a mess of it.

Can't decide what I want......black.....gray....mirror.....decisions.. ..decisions!
