Protector for screen door

Just picked up our new Rockwood Roo over the weekend and I can already tell that dogs and grandkids are going to be tough on the screen door. Does anyone know if there is a screen grill/pet guard for RV screen doors?

You will likely find stamped sheet aluminum at large hardware stores. It can be cut to size and mounted on the door with screws.

I installed one on my trailer. But you need to do a practice fit-up before installing the screen. The screen we used could interfere with the door closing around the door seal/metal if installed per instructions. I rotated the screen 90 deg's to allow the mounting surfaces not to interfere with the door closure surface.

My DW purchased this on line from Amazon along with a screen door handle that is adjustable. This way the children can grab this instead of the little closure lever on the door.

I measure my screen door, then went to Lowe's, purchased a section of Lexan or plexiglass that would cover the measurements I took of the door. I drilled numerous small holes in the Lexan and then with some short sheet metal screws, I attached the Lexan to my door. I only did the bottom half using the smoke color Lexan. Our two Westie's can now enjoy looking out, but cannot damage the screen or door.

We ordered screen protector online. It had to be bent just a tad but it covers the whole screen so our dog canít scratch through to the screen.

Screen Protector

I did the same with clear acrylic since our cat was trying to claw it.
Took measurements of the lower half & went down to Tap Plastics & had them make one, took 15 minutes & $20.00 later. Had radiuses put on the corners & since it is lite I use velcro to attach.
Working so far...

Lowes ~~ measure and bought Lexan to fit. Industrial strength Velcro has held for 3 years.

We have the one from camping world mentioned above. Got the new camper and installed it after we set it up for the first time.

When we packed up to leave I folded up the SolidStep steps and closed the door...almost.

There was not enough clearance between the screen and the Solidstep to keep the pet guard on the screen.

I'm going to have to figure out how to do a temporary mounting so it can come on and off easily and without tools.

Just keep that in mind if you have SolidSteps.
