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.

I'm about to tackle the entry door rust problem.  Reading the posts made here most of my questions were answered. I am wondering if the screen door can be removed so that I can clean and repair the whole step at once.

We had the old shades replaced at the factory last year. The new MCD shades are much easier. I did add Velcro strips to them so when they are down they won't swing out over the bed, plus it stops the banging noise when driving.
We are very happy with the change

Yes it is Mike .... The installer told me that it is something that Winnebago came up with. And that this model is the unit used to replace the water in my 2008 2350

Had my new water heater installed on Friday, now I have the chore of trying to put the cabinet back together.
The new Atwoods come with a pipe on the back that allows a hook up to the engine. This pipe has got to go, I  cannot  reassemble the cabinet wall with it there.  Hopefully it'll be done today. 

Must be ready to go, as we are for Wells Maine for the week.
