Hi all,

Does anyone know of a fly wire repair kit I can use on a Jayco CT?

I'm particularly after some brand names as I need to buy online.

Thanx in advance for any ideas

cheers

Are you going to replace the whole screen, or just put a temporary patch on a hole in the existing screen?

Good question,

I have about 6 small tears all under 100mm long.

I'm hoping there is some sort of repair available for those.

Thanx

We cut a hole in the flywire window in our camper to fit an air conditioner in while living in it in Kununurra.Once we moved into our house, I purchased a piece of fly screen from the local upholstery guy and stiched it in.I over lapped it 20mm and sewed both edges.Came up great but took ages (needed a few breaks as you go cross eyed looking at them little holes for so long)

I used off cuts from replacing door screen on some small holes, and used some clear silastic to glue it in place.

Contact may have been better as it took a while to set.

But Really hard to find where I patched it now as it's in the kids bedrooms I hardly look out there windows anyway.

If you`r not worried about appearance just stick some tape over the hole on both sides. i.e. sticky side to sticky side. Plenty of suitable types of tape available these days.

Good luck.

I don`t know where i`m going but i`m enjoying the journey.

depending on where the holes/splits are, you can fit a new screen patch over the hole by overlapping the new piece by 20mm or so and fusing the two (new and old screens) together with heat from a soldering iron or similar on new side and using a piece of metal/steel on the other side behind old screen (need extra set of hands to help hold it). just try it out first on some scrap screen material to get it right (how long to leave heat on, amount of force etc)

All we have done on our tents, and canopy is just get some thread of the same colour, and slowly stitch up the 2 sides back together, takes a bit of time, but works a treat, no mossies in the tent. Just loop thru and follow the squares all the way down.
