Jalousie Window reno - 1974 Trillium 1300

Hi,

All my windows have been pulled to paint the Trill so am also going to give the windows a refresh. Have ordered all gaskets and glazing from Vintage Trailer Gaskets.

Need to replace the torque operators while I am at it and have a few questions:

1 - where is the best place to buy replacements for the Hehr 4901/2 windows? I see them at Vintage Trailer Supply, Interstate RV Metal and Supply and Pelland Enterprises. Just wondering if people have used any of those suppliers and if you were happy with the product and service received.

2 - The original torque operators are held in place with tube rivets. I am wondering how people have attached the new torque operators...pop rivet, bolt and locknuts, tube rivets(which I can find very little information on)


Appreciate any help!

Cheers,

Murray

I have 1978 T4500 and would never paint a FG trailer except rare occasions. Why are you painting it? Has it been painted before?

Painting it due to the leaky roof, fibreglassing the roof, covering large areas where gelcoat was worn off completely and the Maxxair installation.

I wish painting wasn't necessary but I think it was my best option given the circumstances. Here is a thread about it... http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...ard-88661.html

Ditto on Camping Treasures. Also picked mine up there. Just finished redoing the right side, now on to the left

Most local RV dealers have window operators in stock. Just bring the old one so they can provide you with the right model you need. Not very expensive, like $7 or so.
