Screen Door Sweep - Adjustable?

I have a 1/4" gap between the bottom screen door sweep and the aluminum frame......., was wondering if the sweep itself is adjustable (?).

Can't find any info on the Lippert site.

Any thoughts?



Bob

We have never found any part of an RV screen door to be adjustable.
What about a rubber stick on sweep cut to size to take up the gap?;

Agree, the only way is to see if the hinges are adjustable and move the while door up or add a rubber sweep to the outside.

Seems like I have seen a product that looked like a coarse brush the sticks to the bottom of doors but it would not stop outside air.

No adjustment at the hinges, and a closer look at the existing bristle sweep it doesn't look like it's going to grow any....., definitely not adjustable.

I'm sure Lowes or HD will have something that will address the gap.

When I take the TT into the dealership this spring out of curiosity I'll see how Lippert "fills the gap".

Thanks, I could not remember the term "bristle sweep".

I would like to know how they react.

The sweep has fine nylon bristles...., "brush" door sweep may be the more common reference.
