RE: Acrylic sheet to replace skylight bubble?

Dicor sealant either self leveling or not should work well, depending on your fit should work. You might consider Eternabond tape if you cant get a flat fit. You mentioned machining the edges, you should be able to do that with a router with a chamfer bit, poly thakes that easy, acrylic would crack. Great, thanks...I may take it to a machine shop tomorrow. Just a 1/4" wide 1/8" high lip for the caulk would help to get a clean look I think...I got plexiglass. Did some googling. That looks like it can be routed too -- yes? I may skip the original framing for the bubble. It's so messed up. Doesn't look great. The screws should hold it tight. I think I'll also paint about an inch at the edge the color of the roof to conceal the butyl (?) tape/putty that will go underneath. I may drill new holes near the old ones for the good fit. Drill right through the plexiglass and the roof at the same time to make sure they line up. Thoughts on that?

RE: Acrylic sheet to replace skylight bubble?

Polycarbonate, NOT acrylic. Poly will take hail and not haze or yellow with age. Any idea if either of these work with self-leveling sealant?

RE: Acrylic sheet to replace skylight bubble?

What are your plans to dress up the hole on the inside. There's a blind that you pull shut which is always closed so you won't see it anyway from the inside. But it will allow light to come through.

RE: Acrylic sheet to replace skylight bubble?

Will this work? not cheap and a little bit larger. But if the inner dome hides that it's larger I would think it would not matter. Link The measurements on the picture don't match the measurements in the description so you might need to reach out to them and ask which is correct. They also seem to offer a custom skylight creation for $239 if you have to go that route. Custom Thanks! Nah, that first one is too narrow... :(

RE: Acrylic sheet to replace skylight bubble?

Make sure you get the sealant problem fixed. ..... And if there is a curb above the roof surface, preserve that. Thanks for the input. I have the self-settling sealant which works well. If there's a curb? What do you mean by that? The frame that was around the old bubble? Yes, I'm going to replace that. But I may need a machine shop to router the edges of the acrylic so they are thinner and can accommodate the frame then caulk around it as usual. It just won't be a bubble window like before.

Acrylic sheet to replace skylight bubble?

I'm selling my Alpenlite 5th wheel. I can't find a replacement skylight bubble for it and the old one is on its last legs so I had the idea to replace it with just a flat sheet of acrylic. That would work, wouldn't it? It's 30x38". How thick would you want the acrylic to be? I'm thinking at least 1/4". And acrylic or polycarbonate? Thanks much...

RE: What toilet part do I need?

What toilet part do I need?

My toilet still flushes fine but when you press on the pedal you have to put your toe under it and pull it back up. I'm guessing it's a spring in the water valve assembly -- should I just get the appropriate valve assembly kit? There's no leaking. It's been like this for over a year. Doesn't feel sticky, feels like a spring is missing or worn out. Actually I have a vague recollection of something making a sound at the time it first lost its ability to spring right back. Haven't changed that valve assembly for a very long time. Do I need a new pedal with that or will the old pedal work fine with a new valve assembly? I just tried some WD40 and now it's a little worse...phff. Actually, now I'm thinking it's the spring cartridge assembly. ? Thanks much...selling my rig after 15 years and moving into my first house. It's time. Appreciate all the help over the years...

RE: Vacuum issues

Ok...I'll check the screen leading to the motor. I've changed the bag regularly.

Vacuum issues

My rig is 20 years old. The house vacuum suction pretty much stopped. I've run a snake through the tube and don't feel any blockages. it smells hot even when I disconnect the hose from the box in the basement and pull up the tab so it powers on. Do you suppose the whole vacuum is fried? Even if the there was a blockage, with the hose disconnected the vacuum shouldn't smell hot. Thanks...
