PH Screen Tears

Has anyone found a way to repair splits, tears, in the pent house screen windows? I have a few tears from 1 inch to 3 inches. No, I don't know how the tears occurred.

Re: PH Screen Tears

I bought a little screen repair kit from a outdoor gear store to fix a tent screen years ago. It is a sort of stick on deal... worked well and is still there. Try googling tent screen repair, something will show up.

Google Coghlan screen patch kit .have used them on several tents and one of the trailers that Mamma Bear and Baby Bear paid a visit to in Yellowstone . Not perfect but it lasts and keeps the Bugs out .

Re: PH Screen Tears

stanw99 ... I tried that and it did pull the tear together. I then coated the seam with some silicone glue, so it looks a little gummy. What gets me, is that, as I see it, there is apparent no way to replace the screen short of taking the entire canvas unit off the van. It's really just a cosmetic issue at this time.

Re: PH Screen Tears

Good for you. My penthouse is in great shape. Both past owners never used the PH area for sleeping so I had to create my own bed. I try to be careful especially when closing but accidents happen.
