    Window screens in my 08' Bighorn

    Is there an easy way to remove the window screens for cleaning?...They appear to be spring loaded. I've tried to compress the retainer springs to no avail...What's the secret?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Larry, ours has dual pane windows so I don't know if they come out the same way. We just lift up on the screen and pull the lower edge of the screen into the rig. So easy in fact, I'm surprised the cat hasn't figured it out.

    I have taken all of the screens out in out Bighorn. Just lift up on them and pull out the bottom. The problem is that it is so easy we all look for a way to make it hard.

    Make sure the cats don't read the forum.
