What others may not be able to see is that the black tank itself is black ABS plastic and then the shell that comprises the top of the tank and the shower pan is PVC. On mine the two are welded to one another at the toilet flange and where they welded the vent fitting in. Otherwise, they are independent of one another.

There is always more than one way to skin the proverbial cat, but I'd use the universal glue, in the top corner. The side approach adds to complexity and especially adds space issues. Use blue tape to limit the sqeezeout around the white collar and the pan. Wipe off excess before it dries and remove the tape. After it dries then apply new tape and caulk with ProflexRV white. Make a cove with the tip of your finger and remove the tape. The caulk stays bright white and doesn't yellow or get brittle.

FC7039, I'm working on the back"trunk" door on my 55 FC. I have the door but I don't know how the door was originally mounted. Could you take some pictures of the door on the back of your trailer with mounting detail?

If you would place them on my thread I'd appreciate it.
Thanks Don
Also do you have a layout of your plumbing?

Your nose (and your wife) will not be happy if you do this.

If your tank is ABS it must have been painted to result in the white/cream exterior. Will you be painting any other fixtures in the bath? If so, you can order a can of Mr Tubby and paint this fitting after it is installed... but do not do any caulking until after you paint.

Here is the picture again to freshen everyone's memory.

There is a 3/4 inch piece of foam between the top of the ABS black tank, and the white shower pan. The Pelland site says their pans are either ABS or Fiberglass. No mention of PVC anywhere. I suppose I could mount the abs flange with the universal, and use heavy duty caulking where the pvc fitting comes through the pan. There is really no place to put a glue since there isn't a flange for the PVC.

Looks cool, man. I might do something similar on my Liner.

Found one...WAHOOO!

I was doing some views on Ebay today, and happened across one of the Yankee 70 fixtures with lens. Buy it now for $1.25 and $5.99 shipping. Less than $8.00 for the complete lens and fixture is amazing. Now I have an additional fixture incase VTS wants to have them made.

WAHOO!!!!

good score! I didn't see that one (and I've been keeping an eye out for ya!) My Liner has plastic lenses that look a little different. I don't think any 2 were alike.

I was planning to replace the entire rear panel on the trailer this weekend, but both of my helpers fell through. I will drill out some rivets, but leave the sheet up with a few clecos until I can get a bucking assistant. Too bad as the weather looks to be pretty good for the next three days which I am off.
