Yes I did and yes I had to enlarge the opening. I used shears and then used clear coat spray on the edges. The new door has a key lock now and perhaps the box is made correctly as well so you won't have to cut.
I called the factory and mentioned that the shower was too big for the opening and there was no lock. Maybe they fixed the size, because the lock is there now.

I would not use the furnace with them on during the heating season. Suggest checking with Suburban/Atwood if you want more information.
This depends on the screen design, IMO. If it is just a flat screen which is the same diameter at the furnace exhaust....I would stay away, due to restriction of flow. If, however, it is a domed screen, it has more open vented area to compensate for the wire restriction, and is OK....again, IMO.

Thanks, Subfan. I'll phone Airstream before I order. If I have to cut, it would be my luck to screw something up.....a big deal on those aluminum panels.

We installed the Airstream stainless steel potable water access door. It came with a key different from the usual CH751.

...and here's the newest stainless steel option....I know it'll get scratched up, but even so, will look better than the pewter gray paint that also gets plenty ugly. Be advised, if you've never used stainless steel rivets, it takes a LOT more muscle. I suppose you could use VHB tape instead, but I did 8 rivets so I can "Live Riveted."

Nicely done. I'd go with rivets as well. Tape makes me nervous.

Has anyone seen or had any experience with these stainless steel appliqués from the Airstream Store, which can cover the furnace, water heater, and water fill doors? I am trying to imagine how they would look and how they're applied.

I'm looking to replace my furnace, HW heater, Refrig vents and stove vents as they are galvanized panels. Is there a place to purchase these items in SS or Alum?
Thanks!

Check the Airstream store. They have many of the items you expressed an interest in acquiring. I would give them a call to see if the current pieces would work on your vintage trailer. Lube the credit card as they are really "proud" of these accessories.
