Screen door protection
« on: March 01, 2018, 06:08:22 PM »
We're getting ready for our shake down trip in our new TT, a Coachman 281RLDS. We will be traveling about with our 5 month old Airedale & was wondering what folks may be using to protect their rig's screen doors from scratching paws. Trying to avoid a disaster! Thanks!

Welcome to the forum.
I used  this. Cut it to the same width of the door and pop riveted it to the inside of the door. I painted it white on the inside and black on the outside. You can't even see it from the outside. It blends right in with the color of the screen.  It's also available on Amazon for $19.99.

Thanks for the suggestion, that looks like it would do the trick.

A piece of Plexiglass inside the lower half of the screen door works just fine, and the critters can still look out the door.

Yes that would work but it will also block the flow of air to a certain extent. If you was to use this idea, I would use Lexan. Plexiglass will crack easily and Lexan will not.

this worked for us and still allowed a breeze to come in.

Training the dog works better than anything else and is cheaper.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.
