Following the photo tour of the A/C mod, I realized I should show what I was replacing, and how I installed a replacement vent cover. I've made a Photo Album showing this mod as well.
had a very sick homebrewed A/C in the closet when I got it...it was my first major repair that was needed to make the trailer healthy again.
Once I cleaned out the old Junk, I bought a Fridge
Vent Door from Scamp
and modified it to work in a narrower hole, (It was the right height, just too wide).
By trimming off the Aluminum tab on the backside of the door rim on the left side and around the two radius corners, I could make the door fit inside the existing opening. The door's rim on that side had to be pressed flat as well. The Aluminum Door Rim was cut trim with a Dremel Tool with several highspeed abrasive cutting disks.
To get the opening ready to take a new door I first had to clean up the opening and build it up with fiberglass filler to assume a better shape. I sanded, shaped and painted my work to blend in the edges of the gaping hole in the side of the trailer.
Please enjoy the photos... I hope they serve as inspiration
Here's the Album:
