Obviously if you can take them down and clean them in soapy water then replace them!

Thats what we do on out RV sorry but it's not that hard !!:thumb:

Hi Geoff,

Ours are just 4 cross-head screws and the screw holding on the skylight winder.

They were looking a bit faded and torn due to wear so I ordered up some more flyscreen mesh and recovered them all.

Now we just remove and wash them as Pat has suggested.:thumb:

We have a Monaco Cayman and I have to go onto the roof to undo a couple of screws that support the mesh holder - then I have to move into the vehicle to remove the winder handle and the fan switch.

Generally I find it easier to simply remove the 'MaxAir' vents and give the mesh a darn good brushing whilst Mo stands underneath with a vacuum cleaner nozzle pointing at the mesh.

Not quite such a simple procedure as some of the other RV's.

:thumb: Thanks for the replies.

I thought I might be missing something, i. e. a quick way of doing it, when I first looked at the job. But as said 4 screws holding the surround in, 2 screws holding the sreen on and the crank handle screw.

Could not believe how dirty they were.
