I visited a few rv stores and hardware stores but no one seems to have the size for our 1980 17 ft Boler windows. I bought the screen last summer and would love to change all the screens before this summer. Anyone know where to direct me on this? willing to buy online too if possible. (the old piping is dry and breaking when I remove it. No re using it)

Thanks for all your help on this.

Replacement of the screen mesh should be a fairly simple operation. If you already have the screen material, all you need is a new spline and a spline tool. If you don't, you should be able to pick up everything you need at a Lowes or Home Depot type store. I've included a link to a video showing how to do it on a home screen pannel, technique would be the same.

Hope this helps...

Hi Tina

Most glass shops carry new spline for screens at
least the ones that re-screen screens.

Screen spline. Any Hardware Store that does screen and window repair will have six to ten sizes.I personally rescreen 100's of screens per year.

Yes I have checked the hardware stores, they do not carry the size for mine. I guess a glass shop is next on the list. Thanks all. I am just missing the spline, have everything else and have re screened many doors at home due to being a dog owner.

The screens are now changed thanks to having to finally order the size of spleen since no one had any in stock. I now have a roll of 500ft long 4mm foam spleen. Ha! Anyone need any, let me know.
