I have the same mess on the side of my camper. The Velcro deteriorates quickly in sunlight. First becoming brittle then just flaking off leaving the adhesive behind. The velcro on the foldup side is still OK so I guess I could still use it as a sun shade only. I am pretty disappointed with FR for this design that is not capable of lasting one season when the camper is stored outdoors.

This is a pretty upsetting thread on the screen room. I just purchased my A128S w/screen room and have not yet been out in the camper. Hate to think that the $650 cost of this, which was very expensive to begin with, was a bad purchase. Sounds like nobody is having any success with the way it attaches (velcro).

Since it appears to be a UV degradation problem. The obvious solution would be a Velcro backed sun shield made with a UV resistant material that would cover the camper-side Velcro in between trips.

This is of course easier said than done, although perhaps not for our craftier members. But it falls into the "way too much trouble to use" category for me. Particularly since I wouldn't use the screen room much one way or another.

Someone earlier in this thread mentioned snaps instead of velcro. Would like to see pics or a description of that modification.

Anyone??

I was concerned about this post after just purchasing the screen room. I talked to an expert yesterday and am finding that people apparently have not installed the product as designed. First, it is intended for the velcro to be only on interior with no exposure to outdoors. Also, people talked about needing a step ladder to put it up. It is supposed to be hung on the velcro with the door side roof/wall section collapsed while you are inside camper with farside wall raised. I will update this once I get it and figure it out!

Tamraking, not sure who your expert is but apparently they haven't seen the installation instructions be it clearly shows velcro to be placed on the outside as well as on wall edge.
