Questions about installation

I know there are probably a millions ways to install, but how are you installing?

I was thinking of using either Dicor or C-10 self leveling sealant, placing tape around the area I want to seal, setting the vent cover in it then pulling the tape after it's set.

Or how about using Sikaflex 715 or Trempro 635, or even parabond to seal.

I do not have any tubes (Tanks and pipes completly removed), just holes in my roof.

Also, are these caps riveted in after sealant is applied?

Thanks in advance,

TIMK

I will be permanently attaching mine with rivets and Tempro. Right now, I have them temporarily attached with rivets and butyl tape, until my vents from the interior are installed (we're just about up to that point ). Tempro rules!

Sweet

Yeah, I ordered some also (haven't got around to installing them), but they do look great.

Good luck!

There's a picture in post number 6. They do sit at an angle on the trailer, kinda like Mickey Mouse ears someone said! But they don't rust so that's a huge plus.

I'm going to put them on next weekend, weather permitting, and I'll post pics. I'm okay with them at an angle, it'll be a lot better than the stubs of ABS poking out of the roof.

Aluminum Sewer Vent

Hi Everyone.

I've been waiting for Mobile Home Depot to get more of the sewer covers in. I just called and Dennis says he has a stock of 300 so have at'em!

I mentioned Airstream and he was hip to what I was looking for. $41.32 shipped to California for (2) so the price may have risen a little.

Airstream's sewer vent pipe covers work great on any year trailer.

Vents Installed

So heres what I did. Sorry Andy, I kind of like the older square vents. I assume that those are the ones you mean. Anyway I had already ordered these so I used them. I took the old vents off using 3M caulk softener, plastic scraper set ala Harbor Freight and cosmoline remover and plastic razor blades for the little stuff. The screws holding the old vents were pretty loose. I polished the vent covers and coated them with UV resistant lacquer. I took some aluminum mesh screen and crazy glued a cone of mesh into the vents. I used the old vent bases as a template and drilled holes in the bottom of the new vents. I also took some rubber gasket material and made gaskets. I placed a bead of Trempro 635 around the pipe at the base and sealed the hole. I applied enough to make a mound at the base of the stack pipe. I then placed a thick bead of 635 in a circle near the rivet holes in the roof. I placed the gasket down and then placed another circle bead on top of the gasket and around the pipe at the gasket hole. I then placed the cover on, aligned it and dipped each Olympic rivet in TP635 and applied. I have not successfully learned how to shave the heads yet (Im hit and miss) and it was late in the day so I left the nubs for now and dabbed with Trempro. Its not as pretty as Beckys install but itll do and should be functional without leaks for some time to come.

I installed the mushroom cap over my vent. With a lot of vulkem to seal it, and I still have a leak under it. I am thinking the leak comes from a nearby seam that is not sealed enough. Hope your is better!
