Regarding the galley window: Right after we purchased our Stream, I fabricated two wooden props for the back window. Each is about 3/16 X 1" x 4" long. I cut a slot close to one end that fits over the tongue of the window latch when turned upward. I drilled a 3/8" hole close to the other end to receive a similar sized dowell. The dowell drops into the wide part of the slot at the bottom of the galley window. When the props are in place, they hold the galley window open about 4" for ventilation even in windy weather and pouring rain. When traveling, they fit neatly into the space between the screen and glass of the window. Not as professional as the rework of the rear window you are discussing, but the price is right.....and it works. Best to all -- Ty

Finally got around to installing a Dometic 311 Porcelain toilet in my 2007.Also ordered wood seat ,it came with spray. Got it from Vintage Trailer Supply(Great Service and Fast Delivery). Very easy to install. The piping ,tubing is another "Long Story " Best left for another time. Very Happy with the Results.

With guidance from the dealer's service manager over the phone, I removed the three burners and top cover of the Atwood LP range, and discovered that one of the wires from the sparker to the bad burner had fallen out of the spark generating unit.

Nice!

The removal of the burners and top of the range is not at all intuitive, so when you are ready to give it a go, let us know. I have the LP gas oven model (not convection oven and micro), so I am not sure if we have the same Atwood range/oven. Unfortunately, the model and serial number sticker is buried under the range top, don't you know . . . !



PS -- Do you have the LP gas oven too? Handy in your neck of the woods, to keep the chill off when baking something in the oven. Good for boondocking too . . .

OTRA15, thanks for the guidance offer. It sounds like we have the same setup, no convection or micro.
thx

I used to drive right by there when I lived in Southern California. Any further thoughts on one 2016 window operator fitting your back window? I haven't had time to talk with my dealer about it.

Thanks.

Thanks guys, it was a great weekend!
I have not taken measurements of my window and right now my local dealership does not have a 2016 20 footer to measure. I am still interested in that idea though.

Has anyone with a 20' experienced a blown fuse for the refrigerator ventilation fan, as described in the following thread?

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f516...an-141315.html

Does your fan run a lot, especially when the main exterior entry door is latched open, right on top of the refrigerator ventilation doors? It seems like the air circulation on a hot humid day is very compromised here, especially when the awning is out.

On my old 25' the fridge flue ran up to a faired flue cap at the turn of the roof, which permitted LP fridge operation, even on the road. This design also vented the hot air up and out without needing a fan.

Our design seems like a weak link in the chain IMO. Any thoughts other than installing a quieter computer fan?

Thanks.

Update on the fan replacement -- the following thread (among others) describes a replacement fan option in a 16' Sport:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f425...lly-11811.html

Any further thoughts specific to our FC20 would still be appreciated.

Thanks!

rigs, refer fans & windows

TCwheels... Seems I'm attachment upload challenged. I'll try again later.


OTRA15 I donít have much experience re the fan except that on the one trip, it sure seemed loud. I found your references to http://www.airforums.com/forums/f516/refrgerator-fan-141315.html & http://www.airforums.com/forums/f425/refrig-fan-noise-fixed-really-11811-14.html in the 20-footer thread and will read up. Seems I remember in a thread that posted pics about some plastic cowling for better and more focused air flow made from gutter materials. Duals and the cowling make sense.

Subfan1 sweet. Is that a Fiamma bike rack?. Our install date is next month.
Any advice before we install. I presume access to the back compartment and on the bumper while challenging is workable?

Talk to me about San Clemente SB. We're heading south sometime after the New Year to Dan Diego and a long overdue El Indio fix and started some basic research.

Sink window, no surprise, ours is like everyone elseís. Window is ready but the frame would need to be modified to accept the lever hardware or traded out as discussed. I donít see screws on the right

Has anyone considered something similar to the window poppers method but longer and bent at both ends. One end would slip into the window locking bracket on the glass and the other end would loop over the handle to keep it pushed in? It would be nice to be operational from the inside....assuming the seal breaks free.

Thanks Bob (and subfan1),

With cooler weather on the way, the rear window mod and fridge fan re-do may go to the back burner. Have a great trip south!
