Apparently a leftover shop. Order will not process, I tried.



Moulds for those were destroyed when Airxcel bought the company. Found that out when I tried to buy the injection moulds.

I tried that site and it looks strange, funny spellings, thought it might be something I wouldn't want to send money to. We would REALLY like to figure out how to keep the rain out of our windows too - curved sides of the 16' Casita are trouble.
If anyone finds out a fix, we would love to know about it.

Rvent Window Louvers

Well, there is an alternative to the MaxxAir window louvers which are no longer available.

Two years ago Wayne Pavalko started this forum page on FiberglassRV. Note that Wayne’s Rvent louvers are completely different from the MaxxAir window louvers.

JonC and I were able to acquire Rvent louvers for our Casita trailers from Wayne. I posted a bit more info on the process in this post earlier this year. Jon also posted Wayne’s email address on the same forum page (two posts prior to mine). My post includes links to two youtube type videos that describe the different Rvent louvers.

Note that Wayne’s day-job keeps him pretty busy and per his original posting, he developed the initial louver for a neighbor using his at-hime 3D printer. Earlier this year, I attended a rally with Jon and Jon reported that Wayne did make a second louver for him after Jon sold his original Casita. At the same rally, another of my friends also reported that Wayne did make louvers for his trailer after I used Wayne’s templates to measure his windows.

My 51 year old trailswest campster no longer has it original window pulls with locks. As it is a sliding window I headed to the hardware store and looked in the window parts section and came up with an alternative lock that secures into the Aluminum frames. They had two sizes that were a potential solution, one large, one smaller. neither was a just right fit. i noticed the larger size had a rubber liner piece inside it. I took that out and inserted it into the smaller sized lock and that made it just the right fit.



Sometimes when looking for solutions that are unknown you just have to head to hardware stores instead of RV stores and do creative thinking and experimenting. This time it did not require any cutting or filing but if needed I could have done that as well.
