Screen Door Insert?

I have a 2006 Surveyor 291. My dog clawed the screen out on the bottom half of the door. From what I was told you could get an all plastic insert for the door to replace the screen. Does anyone know where I could find this or should I call the manufacturer.

Thanks

James

I bought a piece of plexiglass at Lowe's and cut it to size. The door has a perfect slot to fit the plexiglass in. Just gently bend in the middle, put in place, and voila! Fits beautifully, and keeps the dog from tearing up our screen.

We had the same problem but we got a thin flexible sheet of metal from Lowes that had a design punched all over (very small holes) and used that instead of plexiglass. That way we still got some air movements and the puppy could see outside

While my dog is normally well behaved; she LOVES visitors.
She of course assumes they are coming to visit her.
I solved my screen problem just like you did.
Works GREAT; simple.

We had the same problem with our dog. I repaired the sceen and installed an aluminum scratch guard I purchased from an RV dealer. It's adjustable so it fits different size doors. I just used the 4 sheet metal screws to mount it on the door and it kept the screen safe from the dog's paws. It also allowed air flow.
