    Screen door upgrade...

    I Know this one has been done before. The screen door handle has been a very handy feature for us. The best part is when the door is open, it really helps to close the door by reaching around and grapping the handle to close the door.

    The other feature I added was the wire screen to the bottom half of the door due to the dog. In our last Monty, she scratched a hole in it when we left her alone. I did not want that to happen again in the new Monty.

    Found this wire mesh at Home Depot. It was a 2 pack for $12. I forget the dimensions, but was almost an exact fit. I used wire cutters to trim a little off and it fit right into the grooves of the door. I added a bead of clear silicone around the frame to remove the rattling sound when you close the door.

    Plus it added a little weight to the door which helps when you close it. A quick flip with the hand and she closes and latches all in one move.

    That door handle is a simple addition that was a big plus for us too!

      I installed it in November, but haven't gone out yet. Will get a test in 8-9 days.

        We also installed a handle on our door. Now I wonder how we ever managed without it.

            We put one on right after getting our rig! Saves the screen too!

              The handle is a nice feature. We have one on each door.

                  Nice up grade, but will not work with the steps that flip up into the doorway. The handle hits the step before the door is closed all the way, had to remove it to get the door closed for travel. Love the screen on the bottom half of door though.

                    I used the handle last year and it is very helpful. Don't need to worry about pulling on something flimsy to shut the door.
