At a rest stop some people got to checking out our RV and got a little close. Our 80 lb. Labrador nearly jumped through the window and ejected the window screen out onto the pavement. I was able to bend the frame back in put it back into the window, but one of the frame parts is cracked nearly in two. I suspect that it won't last forever. Is there a source for generic parts and pieces for Navion/View (Winnebago)screens or am I going to order a whole new one from the dealer?

You may be able to glue it if you want to go that route. Some lock tite may work well. It really depends on the screen though if you have to go through the dealer or order a new one. Do you have any photos?
4 whopping cylinders on Toyota RV's. Talk about great getting good MPG. Also I have a very light foot on the pedal. I followed some MPG advice on Livingpress.com and I now get 22 MPG! Not bad for a home on wheels.
The frame seems to be made of extruded aluminum cut to length and fitted corners either square or rounded. There are random bits of plastic springy things to keep things from rattling in the window frame channel. I was hoping that someone had this problem before and had a solution that would not require an obscene amount of money. I recently replaced the kitchen sink and faucet with home quality fixtures for about $100. I priced the factory replacements from Winnebago at nearly five times that. So, I don't want gold plated window screens if you know what I mean.
I'll check with them. It is very likely I will be driving by there in about a month. Good to know as I'm sure if all goes according to plan, something else will have broken or fallen off. Sometimes I think driving the RV across country is like Apollo 13 on it's way to the moon.
