I have the Stow Away swing box on my 2350...They have extensions that allow the box to swing out so that rear trunk door opens freely.  As for the ladder I removed the pivots and replaced them with push pins allowing the ladder to fold up and secured with a bungee cord.  If you like I can post pictures of this setup.

Barry opened up a can of worms.
Got to thinking , not only a new screen door.
New Tires....I need 6 new tires.
New Batteries.
Nice wood floor vs. Tiled
More Room
Power Awning vs Crank it out

And she could be all dressed and ready for PEI in August.  Maybe I'll ask Karen to go and get that  knee replacement done early.....I'll ask her just as they put her under cuz that's only way I might have  a chance.      Grin

I've noticed on the newer PCs that the screen door has a more rigid frame then the one on my 2008. I'm curious if I could purchase that style door for my MH.   I am going to Indiana next Friday.  rolling on the floor.

A new screen door or an upgrade to the 2450?????     Grin Grin

I managed to get both tracks removed. With the caps removed there are three screws holding them to the frame. Top screw came out no problem, bottom screws were badly rusted and frozen, not even a screw extractor wold remove them, so I drilled them out.

On the housing, the top cap screw has nut on the end, located inside between the frame and the padded shroud, just enough room to get a box wrench in there.  The bottom cap screw is rusted like the tracks were, I can not tell right now if it has a nut on it, it was getting dark and I tried finding it by searching up behind the step, That will be my first thing to do this morning.  I will be careful once I remove the bolt, according to the diagram provided by Holly this contains the spring.

This job so far taught me a hard lesson.  Monthly or at least twice a year this system needs attention. The build up of debris between the track and door frame was amazing.

So, today I can clean, sand and paint.

Very Nice job on the hitch. I did my battery box with it. I will do the hitch after the entry way.

Thanks Barry, I went out and looked at the screen door, I noticed a snap on plastic  cap on both top and bottom runners and two end caps on the tube.  Once I finish my re caulking job that is my next project.  I would like sand the whole area down and paint it with Chasis Saver, and then a coat white Rust O Leum. I believe Ron Dittmer did it this way.  Afterward I'll glue in some carpet pieces under the awning tools, or add carpet to the area held down with velcro strips for easy removal.

I did see in another post that gradygal (George) was thinking of adding rubber gasket onto the bottom of the entry door and removing the gasket piece just inside.  I would like to do that as well, the gasket is a dirt trapper and I'd like to see it gone.

Thanks again for the reply
Bill

I am bout to tackle the rust around the bottom of the entry door. In earlier post I found some good answers to this problem. I am wondering if the screen door is removable.
