We've decided to install a Fantastic Fan to replace the current vent on our Casita
. We've found the power leads in the roof so we're good there..but we have a couple of questions:
1. How difficult is it to remove the factory sealant from the original vent? Use a solvent or just a putty knife?
2. How specifically should the rivets be removed? drilled out? or only the rivet heads? How do you get the remaining shafts out?
3. Is buying stainless screws prudent for securing the fan or should we use rivets? If rivets, aluminum or steel?
4. We are considering Eternabond tape for caulking the perimeter. Is this something I should reconsider and just stick with a Dicor self-leveling caulk/sealant?
Any help here would be greatly appreciated. We will be doing this in the coming few days of nice weather
