Shabby, that's what I used in the old camper and haven't had a chance to install in the new camper. I'll have to rig something up quickly, we leave Friday!

Now all you have to do is wipe the doggy "nose marks" off the plexiglass.

I guess I was the spender in the group. I got a Camco Screen door grill designed for campers on Amazon. My dogs know how to pop the door open to get out, but they also were damaging the screen.

No more of the mangy mutt getting to the screen anymore!!!!

Yea, he was a sissy.. Lol. I imagine if he were to dig at the pet screen it would shred but he would just take a whack at it to let us know he wanted out and it would hold up.

I think some dogs just can't be crated, one of my beagles hates them. I bought a crate for a husky thinking he would be happy with more room to move around. WRONG!! He chewed and worked the metal till he was able to fit though the side. That was a costly mistake, I just gave up. He is older now and perfers sitting next to me in the car anyway.

Ditto on the plexy glass ....We did the same thing, and using the sticky back velcro made it easily removed to restore back to the original screen door before we traded for our new 2012 RV!

Simple! Replace mesh with steel mesh and connect to battery with 12V fence wire system, available at farming supply stores and ToysRus, I think
