I tried to do a search on this here on the site but was unable to come up with any information so...
I need to replace what is left of the original AC shroud on the trailer. 15 years of being outside in the Montana weather and crazy mountain winds have left the original shroud in tatters.
I purchased a replacement shroud many, many years ago and it has sat in the garage. The AC still runs well but there is hardly any of the original shroud remaining and it is time to bite the bullet and get up on top of the trailer and put the "new" one on.
Can anyone provide information/insight as to what all is involved with taking the old shroud off and installing the replacement. My recollection is that this is somewhat of a PITA which is in large part the reason I have put this off for so long.
I don't want to dent the trailer crawling around on top of it and I know that there is a specific way to approach this type of repair. Will I have to mess with rivet removal/replacement, caulking etc. How much time and effort does this involve.
I have had 2 hip replacements so I really cannot afford to fall off the roof of the trailer
Is this something that I would be better off passing off to a young buck such as my son or my son-in-law because of the degree of difficulty. Thanks in advance.
