Does anyone know if the wires are bundled and routed along or inside the spars; or do they just randomly snake across open areas of the aluminum panels? Specifically, is there reason to worry about screw threads hitting wires in the ceiling and shorting them to ground?

I like the buttons, and they look good cosmetically; but unless one knows where the electrical wires are routed, it seems that you could drive a screw into a wire or wire bundle. When I installed a second FantasticFan, the wire I spliced into looked like it just ran across open space coming from who knows where.

Does anyone know if this is a valid concern; or if there's no need to worry?

I'm going to use short 1/8 inch pop rivets and a drill stop to limit penetration. I've put a few in another problem area and it works very well.

I also use a small washer on top of the drill stop to keep it from spinning on the vinyl.

ID:	197859Here was my solution...I think, however you do it, it remains a matter of personal choice as to what you think looks the best..Anything is better than trying to remove and replace in my opinion..

headliner repair

I like old cars and remembered some of the old fords had chrome strips running side to side across the headliner..Probably for looks. I found some half inch wide 8ft long aluminum strips at lows and simply placed them across the top pressing till they fit the contour of the top and using small rivets and being careful to drill only enough to penetrate the metal behing the wall material attached the strips about 2 ft apart from one end of trailer to other. It solved the sagging problem and at the same time the aluminum kept the aluminum old style appearance of my bambi..to each him or her own but that was the only look that really appealed to me.
