    Good luck and thank you Borden. I opened one of the jalousie window to observe the middle and lower seals that you mentioned.

    We just ordered 7 feet of black Hehr top seal from Pelland. Will let you know how well that works.

    Borden, our front window and kitchen side window are identical. They are both large Hehr Series 7900 jalousie windows. So far the only seals that we've replaced on these two windows is the Hehr 1/8" glazing bead in black from Pelland (H009-344-19 in 2017)

    Hello Borden, actually we have replaced the 1/8" glazing seals on all of our slider and jalousie windows, as well as on the door window. On the bathroom window, we replaced all of the seals. Soon I'll be purchasing the Hehr top seals for our two jalousie windows.

    Hi Borden, the arms retract and fold up into the awning shell along with the rolled awning.
    The whole thing is permanently attached. I don't think it is original.
    I read somewhere there were only ~200 made (1500 model) and of those, only 20 had the flat doors.

    Hi Borden. Sorry for the delay Just today noticed your note.
    My fuse holder was also melted shut. I replaced the holder and the 10 amp fuse. Working well now.

    Borden, thanks for the information. We've owned our Boler 17 for 2 years and are still renovating. Removed, cleaned and reinstalled all windows. Almost done sealing all of the leaks. Now we are replacing all exterior lights. Next we'll replace the body to frame bolts...

    Concerning the rivets holding the cabinets to the body, most were already replaced with large bolts. I plan to remove all of the bolts and just add attachment tabs to the interior surface of the body. Thus getting rid of rivet holes, etc.

    Thank you. Look forward to getting the data.

    We have only taken it on short hauls, so far, without any problem (have not put any brakes on it). We have not done any mountains yet, but I think I may go with the electric brakes, rather than the surge ones, as we do want to travel to the US southwest next year.

    We have only towed it twice, so far and have not done any heavy mountain climbing. We are planning to put surge brakes on the Boler and we did add a transmission cooler to the car. So far, so good.

    Thanks Borden,

    Our window cover was broken so we patched it with matt cloth. Then we painted the boler lettering that was embossed in the cover. With all the rock damage that I bondoed and the paint that was stubborn to remove, I just scuffed up the paint and cleaned it real good before applying the rust paint. It took countless hours. It is not perfect if you look close but it is much better than the PO's paint job. They had paint everywhere it shouldn't be. So did I when I was done, but I spent the time cleaning it up afterwards.
