For those that installed the ss stove vent, did it come with a gasket and did you seal the edges?

Thank you I'm going to confirm that we have a gasket when we get home after this weekend and then seal it. What sealant is recommended?

Upon remembering this, I had a closer look at the ad for this that you posted, and I realized that it was not Suburban's suggestion that we buy those screens, but rather PPL's.

I would not use the furnace with them on during the heating season. Suggest checking with Suburban/Atwood if you want more information.

I installed the SS Furnace door, WH door and stove vent. They were an easy install and look great. Please be aware that they have square corners and not the radius corners of the original parts. They would be fantastic with radius corners if you could get them.

I purchased my furnace door and stove vent through Airstream, and not long after that they raised their prices quite a bit before I could buy the WH door. I purchased my WH door through Out-of-doors mart as it was a bit cheaper with tax and shipping added to the equation. I want to add the new SS water fill door that Airstream now has on their website, but at $185+shipping it's more than I can stomach at this point...

The stove vent comes with a foam type gasket and I used some gray sikiflex to seal it.

Thank you very much. We got home today and I removed the vent and confirmed the gasket is there, all I now need is to seal it.

Bringing this back up to the top. I am about to upfit our trailer with the SS and want to know more about the furnace gasket. Does the gasket come with? If not, where does a man get one?

There was no gasket on my old door nor my new one. They both stand off the skin.

Wait, I guess you are talking about the inner plastic door. I just got self adhesive window foam tape at HD.

Now, if we could just find a potable water door....
For what it's worth, I just covered the potable water door with aluminum duct tape; done very carefully it looks very good.

Well, having not taken the original door/furnace cover off, I really do not understand where a gasket would be, nor was I expecting that a replacement gasket would be required for a simple cover change. Based on the above post, I was hoping someone could shine some light on the issue as in source for said gasket. Guess I need to explore behind the cover to see what everyone is talking about.

I just ordered the furnace, water heater, and stove stainless steel upgrades. I was going to get the outside shower door, but got a little spooked at the possibility of needing to enlarge the opening. Has anyone done that, and how difficult was it? Thanks
