Second link is probably the best option...

Well we had some pretty serious rain over the last week, and I don't see any signs of leaking around the new vent. Not sure if it would necessarily be so obvious as a drip from right around the vent,...

Thanks Rick. I'll get up there with lap sealant today and they we'll see. Rain forecasted for tomorrow so it's time! Unfortunately I'll be out of town so I won't get a chance to see if there are any...

But also when I look at how Bigfoot themselves wired stuff...they just used connectors with no protection at all. No tape, no shrink wrap. Nothing.

Not that that's a good thing...

Yes, you're right.

I know better...but I don't have a heat gun, and in the past used a lighter to shrink the heat shrink...with not so good results. Just as easy to burn the stuff. So while I...

Back inside I spliced my wires I had run through the channel into the fan wires. Pulled everything tight using the other end of the wires hanging out of the cabinets, then called it a day.

Looks like I didn't take of photo of the final roof prep. Like I said, I just chipped away a little more of the lap sealant, then sanded the dirty layer off, and cleaned everything. I'll be sure to...

The instructions say I can cut the flashing down to size, so that's my plan. I set it as far into the fan as it would go, and marked the depth. I measured the depth (1"), then measured 1" up from the...

The Channel.

It looks like it runs all the way to the side of the trailer, and connects with a similar channel running down the wall, which has the wires for the overhead kitchen stuff. But I...

Thanks Walt. I'm sure it has insulation...It's just that wherever I can actually see into the walls, there isn't any. But I think that where I can see into the walls is where they have openings for...
