Hi Janey,  our  door suffered the same fate.  Brought it to  P.C. factory hoping to have the screen replaced.     They  said it was too far gone and had to be replaced.
They did a beautiful job, and quickly, as usual.      Better than the old one.      This was about 4 years ago, for about  $ 275.    Last year the latch broke, sent  for a replacement
from P.C.     No problems since.

Hi Janey,

It sounds like someone else's dog ruined your screen door.  If that is the case, then.....   pyho

Depending on the location of the hole in the screen, there just might be enough extra material rolled up in the screen to simply cut-off and re-attach the leading vertical metal portion.  Carefully grab and pull out as much screen as possible to see if you have enough extra material to work with.

No!  It was my own devil dog - King Tucker.  We had a really great mobile rv tech do some work on our Moho today. He said there are two screws at the top and bottom. Just remove it - take it to a hard ware store and they can replace it.  He said it would be cheaper than what he would charge us. Well, well have to check it out.

Be careful. That screen door is under tension. I'm not sure how the mechanism works. I remember an old post about it though.

We must have the same dog.  I have a 2015 Phoenix 2350 which my dog also went thru.  You have three types of repairs. 1) a stick on patch which will not work if the rip is near the frame; 2) buy a new screen door thru Liftco, 574-266-5551, cost back in 2017 was $250.00 plus freight; or purchase a new screen cut specifically for the door through Stoett Industries in Hicksville Ohio, cost approximately $60.00.
Option two takes approximately one hour and is very easy.  Option three also takes about one hour but can be frustrating if the screen unwinds while you install it. The you have to start over again.  Note that you may also need two sided tape which you can get through Stoett.
Good luck.
