Lucky me with a darn good 2004 25' Classic. Bought last summer and lovin rallies, camping, learning & playing.
I've made changes in my life to accommodate this new member of the family. Though apprehensive about it at first, I now change the oil on my F-250 TV and have been learning how to perform the maintenance on the AS when I can. I even had the driveway enlarged and resurfaced. That was lucky, because I had to store her outside last winter. So far, so good. I can keep an eye on Beauty and have her close to home.
But storing outside in the snowy northeast has its drawbacks. When I got up on the roof this weekend to wash and inspect I examined the sewer vent pipe gasket since the PO (original owner) told me it had never been replaced.
Looks like I need to replace the thing. Exposed screws, cracks in sealant, etc. I've seen posts on how to do it. I've got the tools and a safe way to work on the roof.
Here's where the dumb questions arise
: I'm not sure what is the correct vent or where to get it. I can copy the number off the vent. Then what? I looked over Inland RV and couldn't find it. On google and amazon I see Ventline 2049-01. It looks right. Fits a 1 1/2 vent pipe. Yes? Is that it? Is that all?
When people talk about a gasket, do they mean the stuff I'm going to put on the roof between the round vent pipe cover and the roof? I've got some Sikaflex 721 that I plan to use to seal the holes. Or is there something else I should use? And is there an actual gasket? Besides that, I mean...
Oh here's another one. I've read some people refer to some screen or netting that's supposed to keep insects and critters out. Does that come with it??
Or is that not used on this? Or shall I add that on my own?
I lurk on the forums a lot and find this to be an invaluable resource. It's given me several sides to every discussion and I appreciate the experience and thoughtfulness that goes into many of these posts. I plan to replace my skylight with a maxim and think this little sewer vent pip cover job and renewing the sealing around the fantastic fans will be good preparation for me.
So please excuse my literal interpretations and overall newbiness.
Hoping we all get some good fall camping before the snow flies,
