I can't figure out a direct link, but it's page 553 on here: West Marine eCatalogs

I used the 4" screw in ones. I would go clear lid if you're ordering. I was in the store, and they only had white, so I went with it.

I also think if I did it again, I would double the amount of screwholes for this purpose. I don't think they'll leak, one of these days I need to fill the tanks full and see.

Hi Donna, I was prepping today for adding the Fantastic Fan outside vent cover and found silicone all around the edge.....I thought of you
One question being I've never had this type of powered vent before or a Casita. How long of a rivit or screw can I use for attaching the mounting brackets for the cover without coming through the inside?

I would measure from a point on the top of the vent to the top of the camper, and from the bottom of the vent to the bottom of the roof. then measure that distance on the vent...subtract the two, and you'll know. I would give myself some fudge factor, 1/4" or so.

I added all led bulbs to the inside, much brighter.

I have a max air fan on order for it, and I'll be ordering ensolite for the back wall from trillium soon. It's about time to get back to working on it.

Looks very nice Jared. I like the colors and patterns.

At some point is like to update my camper. The dinette is particularly hideous in my camper. I've been using towels to protect the seat bottoms.

I like the teal and the checkered pattern.. Nice contrast.

If you used 5200, it won't come off unless you heat it up with a torch. I would not worry about more screws. Fewer is probably better.

Well, some idiot drained the lines, then forgot to winterize it...

I put a new filter housing and strainer housing in. I siliconed the pump diaphragm last year, since parts aren't available anymore. I figured I would put a new pump in now, in case it froze.

Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to fill the system and find out how much other damage was done.

Jared I always hate when the hands are in gear before the brain kicks in. I add them to my list of "lifes learning experiences".

Well, I didn't add water to it yet.

I put fishing pole holders in the bathroom. The bathroom/shower are pretty much emergency use only, and it was the only spot they would fit.

I had made several 120vac - 12vdc converters to run the led light for the water heater, but they kept breaking, must be from the road vibration.

I talked to an electronics shop, and found out you only need a diode of the right resistance, and you can run an led off 120vac. I rewired the whole setup, and it works great. It should last for a long time, too.

No leaks, 40 gallons in the tanks, new pump works great, much better flow.

I just finished the converter panel, it's finally permanently mounted. Time to clean up the mess, load the bike, and drive 750 miles to minnesota for a week of camping!
