Screen repair Windjammer

Help!!!! I have scoured you tube etc over and over for help pertaining to fixing the screen door on my 2015 Windjammer trailer. Everything I find talks about taking out the weatherstripping, removing old screen, and replacing using the roller tool...looks easy BUT I don't think I have weather stripping!! Looks to be glued in place. its a tri door and its the bottom that needs replacing. My dog destroyed it. Looking for advice, hoping to be able to fix myself!

It's as easy as replacing the screen like you would in your screen door at home. Get the roller, screen material (I used some suited for dogs), and screen spline and have at it. I replaced mine on my old camper (about 5 years ago) without issue.

That's the problem, it doesn't appear to have spline. It looks to be glued from the factory

Do you have a picture? My door was like the one in this video, so if they've changed something, I'm at a loss.

So while obsessing over this I called Forest River who in turn gave me the manufacture name/# to call. The person I spoke to said there is spline, or was in my case and it is very narrow 1/8#..i tried to remove where I think the remaining is on the middle of the door and it is almost adhered to the channel of the door-I will search for some sort of tool to be able to grab and loosen, then I will be on the hunt for this spline! who knew something so simple would be so time consuming!!
