Pull down screen in toy hauler

Hi everyone
I had my pull down screen down one night and we had an miss hap when we had a person fall thru the screen and it completely pulled it out of the unit above.
Does anyone know how to put it back together? Do I have to remove it to fix it or can it be done in place? Thanks for any help !!

Well my wife and I removed the pull down screen last night. This was a really easy fix!!
This is what we did to fix it.
Remove the 2screws from each side and take it down
Once removed from the toy hauler we placed it on a bench.
Remove both end caps ( 2 screws per side)
You will see a tub in there,pull that tub all the way out.
On that tub you will see and feel a strip of sticky tape on it . This is what holds the screen on.
On the ends of the tub you will see that one side has a round pin on it and the other side has a round pin with 2 flats on it. This side will have an arrow on it . You want to wine the screen in the opposite direction of the arrow .
Now slide the tub back into the housing.
Put the end cap with the round hole in it first.
Now the cap with the flats on it you want to put it on the flats and turn it in the direction of the arrow ( about 20 turns ) this is what loads the spring up .
Then put the cap screws in .
Then my wife and I brought it back to the toy hauler and reinstalled it.
NOTE : my wile held it in place and I checked to see if the spring tension was good. If not then take down and remove the end cap screws and pull cap out about a 1/4 of and turn the cap some more until it's good for you.
This was an easy fix and it took about an hr .
I hope this helps .

Good information! Did you use new double sided tape?
