Screen Door Slider---need 1.75" Deep


John Parker

Recommended Posts

We have a 2000 Bounder 32H Class A motor home. The plastic slider in the screen door is cracked. That is the part that keeps the bugs out, and you slide it over to get to the handle to open the door. We're having trouble finding a replacement.

 

It is the "P"/Phillips style, 11 5/8ths wide x 11 3/4 high x 1 3/4 deep. Of course, if the size is close, I can cut it down to fit. I found the Camco 45512 and Valterra A77022, but those are only about 1 inch deep, and won't fit.

 

Camping World told me that they cannot help me.

 

It is Saturday, so the Fleetwood phone number is not open. I will try them Monday, but I dread having to buy anything through them. They are only a last resort.

 

Can anyone help me? Where can I find a "deep" screen door slider?

Everything I have seen on Tweetys and Amazon are only 1 inch (or 7/8ths inch) deep/thick. They don't fit my door, because there is not enough room to close the door, or my door handle will hit.

 

If you found a 1.75 inch deep slide, please tell me the brand and model number.

Fleetwood wanted $96 for a replacement on our 2014 Bounder. I made it serviceable woth a fiberglass repair kit and a rattle can of beige paint.

 

I am not surprised that Fleetwood charges $96, while others online are about $15.

 

Thanks for the fiberglass repair kit tip, Peter. I think that is what I will have to do.

UPDATE: I called Fleetwood and they gave the part number I needed. It is a Dexter 440136, aka Phillips 4401-36. They will sell me one $20.69, plus $5 process fee, plus $12.95 standard shipping. Better than $96!

 

I Googled the product number and found several places selling them for around $19 AFTER you add in the shipping. I couldn't have found it by just the dimensions. Nobody wants to post the depth dimension when they sell them!

 

Thanks
