I have been fighting a leak out of the front roof vent for quite some time. Pulled the vent cover off and not sure if the problem was the silicone, rtv sealant, bathroom caulk or bondo.



Cleaned everything off with a flapper wheel on my grinder. I believe I'm just going to rivet a piece of aluminum on top and call it good.

If you cover the hole with translucent plastic you'll get some light during the day. Our original vents have the plastic center and it helps during the day.

Went ahead and took Dennis's suggestion and used a piece of lexan. All they had at Home Depot was clear. I may add some window film if it's too bright.



Started replacing the window gaskets today. Completed one of the living room windows. Boy, when they installed those gaskets in 69 they were serious.

Almost ready to roll!

New tempered glass in front and rear windows, new set of 225-75-15's, LED clearance lights all around, breakaway switch installed, vinyl flooring in bathroom done, and trailer inspected and tagged.

It's been a whirlwind two weeks with several late night sessions.

Headed out tomorrow morning to Orange Beach.

Pics to come.
