Hi folks,

I'd like to know if any of you have tips/techniques for removing the small, horizontal Hehr brand aluminum jalousie windows that are often found in the door or over the stove on Bolers (and Scamps). I searched here but wasn't able to find anything.

(I did, however, find a video showing how to remove the larger jalousie windows from the sides of the dinette area of a Boler -- very helpful.)

I can see that it probably involves drilling out rivets, but I'm wondering if some if them just stay part of the window and aren't involved in removing the window. I guess I'd just like to hear from others who've done it before I start in with the power tools

The windows I'm speaking of are like the one in the door of this Boler (Side note: Santa, one yellow Boler please; I've been good!)

Drill out the rivets and they will come out easily.

Kevin,

I figured I'd need to drill out rivets, but it looked like some of them might (only) be attaching parts of the window to other parts of the window and not to the trailer, so I thought I'd check first.

Alf, PM on the way, thanks.

I'll post back here once I figure it out so that it's searchable in future.

If you carefully drill the rivets out from the outside, you should get all of the rivets that hold the window to the body.

Depending on your Boler, there may be a small metal trim around the windows on the inside that is riveted from the inside that masks the back of the rivets that hold the window in.

So just drill them out carefully so as not to damage any trim that may be there. Or just take that off too and replace later.
