Search for Kevin K. He just posted a front window cover he made from an aluminum frame and siding.

Yes.

If he posts how he made the frame, maybe we can make one that is plexiglass or something that hubby can see through. It does not seem that not having one has hurt our Uhaul, but it seems if they were made with one, there could be a problem. I think our Eurovan is tall enough to act as a protection, but who knows?

Cindy, Scamps gravel guard, that's sold aftermarket, is just a flat piece of fiberglass with U-Shaped Flexible Edge Trim Molding around the edge. It doesn't have a frame. I'd think a piece of clear plexiglass could be fashioned the same way. It's the attachments that may need to be different.

We do have part of the old frame still attached but I am not sure how much or if it could be used.


Oh well, not a priority. I would rather get the classic vehicles running first. We just bought a yard shed, so getting some space in the garage may help with creating some room to work on those. Maybe the VW pickup will no longer be a storage space for camping stuff.

vent cover VT

Ventline makes a similar vent but 12v powered. cap part number is BVA0502-03 it is plastic. Don't know of a distributor but you may be able to have someone order it. I replaced mine with the powered model available from dyers RV Ventline Polar White Van Air-Powered Roof Vent - Powered Vents - Roof Vents - Roof Vents & Ceiling Fans - Hardware. you will have to take the closet out to get to the 12V and trim the ring height to make it fit but easy to do. Also I would double check your 120V wiring to make sure it has not been overloaded, I found that my breakers were corroded and would not work. and just for fun PEX and stab fittings work well for plumbing replacement. You will have to use common flexible faucet connectors available at any hardware store to mate up the tees to the faucets. my 2 cents.
