The caulking on every rivet, did your trailer come that way? Ours does not have that, but we do have an insane amount of caulk on the Fantastic Fans. It covers almost the whole flange and an inch or two on to the roof.

Thanks Bob for the two detailed posts. We have the same brass vacuum breaker, as shown earlier in that 2015 thread . . . thanks for your check valve heads up. Simple enough to put inline when the plumbing is re-done.

FEI -- Here is an earlier post about this project, which will lead to other earlier posts. If you keep clicking on the orange arrow in all quotes that pop up, it is easy to follow the trail . . . backwards . . . over the last couple of year. years? Ugh!

SC, here is a different angle. The OEM is the darker/ dirtier, tooled at the flange edge, but also on some of the screws. When the rear fan was installed the dealer touched up the fwd fan, they lets say top coated with fresh in a less tooled process.

I also talked to them about the caulk. Last week they touched up the fwd fan sith sikaflex 221 which Lewster recommends as an adhesive and a sealant at seams. He recommends the 715 for roof flashing etc. as it dries a bit more pliable but also is semi self leveling. I'll post that sealants thread later.

Hmm, having trouble on the upload.

Looks like they touched up the fwd edge and a few screws too at the time of the rear FV install (1-2018)

Peter thx for the recap. I have been bouncing back to previous thread posts.


BTW Sealants thread.


http://www.airforums.com/forums/f456...ry-116214.html I would suggest posts 21, 100 & 198. Post 91 is the most current "recap".


Thanks you TinTin, Lew and all that contributed. This is a great thread that I have saved for reference.

Howdy fellow 20-footers!

I'll be joining some friends (in their own AS) full timing and traveling around the US.

Here's a pic of my TV and AS:



Thanks to all who have contributed to this thread. I hope I can add some information as well.

Welcome and of course everyone has something to contribute. How does your Chevy’s diesel work out through out your travels around the country?

It's a 2018, bought "used" - it got titled but never picked up from the dealer.

I've only towed from Boise to Salt Lake City so far, and I was quite pleased with the performance of the truck. Only on one very steep grade did it struggle and lost some speed uphill.

Hello fellow 20 footers. The photo above is our new, and I mean new, 20 FB FC. We did a shake down run to Cherry Creek state park right after we got her but the photo is from our “first” real towing and camping trip to Difficult Campground outside Aspen. Great campground BTW. TV is an F150 3.5 which performed without any strain. Looking forward to many more trips this season. I’ve read all the posts in this thread and have learned alot but have tons more to learn.
