That seems like a much better way to go - and it sure would have saved me the effort of having to make one. You have a 2012 model which is newer than mine, so maybe Jayco started doing that as a result of customer feedback. That push rod is what I like. I have to go outside to take my screen out.

I went down the same path amabee is going now. Getting the parts was harder than putting them together.

Sorry, I don't. I made that about a year ago and I didn't save the reps name that I dealt with. Now that you mention it, I think he did go through the factory to get the channels, and they arrived separately.

If the radius pieces fit standard screen hardware, you could get the rest of the stuff at any hardware store. The clips to hold the screen in place make a neat job, but they're not necessary. There are several different types of screen securement available.

To be honest, I may just go back to my original plan. It may just be who I talked to, but I called twice and got the same person both times. I asked about getting the channel from the factory, he said they can't do that. I had just planned on making a rectangular screen to use on the inside, the only time it would be used is when the window is open.

Adding a screen to that window was one of the first mods I did. I put Velcro all around the window, and added the matching Velcro to a piece of screen (cut to the shape of the window). I can remove the screen when needed (cleaning the window, during the winter, etc), and I can undo the bottom of the screen to latch and unlatch the window.

I did it to get more air flow. There is only one small window that opens on the road side of the camper. Being able to open the big window and not have bugs come in is great. When it is raining the bunkend windows have to be closed most of the way. When camping at the beach without electric, all air flow is great to have.

That's a really good idea, heck I've got a big roll of window screen. Thanks.

Your welcome. I use a piece of 1 inch PVC to hold the window open. If I need to close the window and don't want to go outside I just push the window open and the PVC pipe falls out.
