Sorry - iPhone goof on my reply! Going to tarp it to get through the trip. Tried every Torx bit we own and nothing fit so maybe when we get back. My husband thanks you for the caution on caulk gun - he caught me red handed! Lol!

You ever try rolled oats, Francesca? They say it will seal a clinker skiff til it takes up.

Marta, welcome to the forum. Sorry I forgot to say welcome on the first post. Don't panic, a leaking roof vent is not a major crisis. Our new Trillium had a leaky belly band. We got through it. And from what we've seen, Chandler will take care of you. Raz

Looks like a hex head screw. It uses an allen wrench. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hex_key

I gather you are still under warranty, so I'd expect Parkliner to deal with the problem.

Supposing for the moment that it "looks" like a hex head "screw," an Allen key would be useless. A hex head screw (lag) or bolt requires a box, open end, adjustable wrench, socket, pump or other pliers to insert/remove. An Allen wrench turns an Allen setscrew and bolts with several head designations not including hex head. To me, it looks like a spline or torx fastener but blowing up that photo to 10X wouldn't make it any less of a guess. I'm reasonably certain that, whatever its function, it is not one of the several fasteners which secure the flanged housing of the fan to the roof of the trailer.

I wouldn't mess with the trim inside anyways, let the pro's deal with that. My idea of a quick fix is duct tape. They even have it in white. Cant roll down the road with a tarp.

I'm guessing they are rivets.

My new scamp stove/sink overhead light switch broke and I tried to remove fixture. I first thought of allen head then torq head but finally looked in cabinet above fixture.... yep, rivets.

Just saw this today...so there are 2 ParkLiners in NJ!

Well good luck getting it repaired from ParkLiner...kinda far away to rebed some screws. My ParkLiner is a distance away and I can remember what the heads look like for the fantastic fan. What were the other ones? I dont think they are rivets. Take them off, lift the unit up scraps off what they used to seal the hatch down with and clean it well add butyl tape and put back together. Its not too complex and I wouldnt doubt if they used silicone in it...I remember hearing someone else had a window leak and found it was caulked with silicone...Chandler had them back down and fixed it corectly.

Greetings, as a preemptive strike i asked Chandler what product he used on the side windows for caulking and posted at my build thread a few weeks back.

What Chandler uses is a product you can find at LOWES or Home Depot called OSI QUAD Clear 000. There are some pretty cool You Tube videos on the stuff.

I wish i could help solve the attachment puzzle but i had Chandler install the MaxxAir MaxxFan 5100K and it is flush with the interior roof and the trim ring needs no fastening like the stock fantastic fan install.

Cheers,
Thom

My money rides on it not being a rivet as it doesnt look like any I have seen,
I also think calling the trailer manufacture is in order - although you are not near them most manufactures if the trailer is under warranty will arrange for the work to be done at an RV shop close to where you are.

Are you saying that the 2yr warranty only applies to the factory, not Reimbursement from to a local RV repair? I know you bought used but wondering if you knew from the paperwork that came from Harry. Thanks.

Personally I'm figuring I have no warranty....Been 6 weeks since I emailed Chandler about the batteries being vented....called first thing this morning spoke with Cameron and he said he would have Chandler call me back...I hope he rectifies the battery box issue or I'm going to be building a vented box...I know I bought mine lightly used but some issues like this should be rectified by whoever owns it.
