    Can you send a picture of your butterfly screw arrangement?

    Last summer a tree branch fell through the side panel of my camper. I decided to enlarge the hole and put in a skylight on both right and left panels. It ended up bringing much more light into the cabin. I then figured I would put in a skylight at the front end so at night I could see the stars. I first cut out a hole, then scribed a frame to fit the curve of the camper. I attached the frame to the camper with epoxy and wood filler. I had rabbeted out a notch in the frame that I put the plexiglass into along with silicone caulk. I then built a frame inside the cabin to cover the edges of the hole. I can’t seem to download my images to this note. My email is ralphbrownmd@gmail.com. If you send me your email address I will be glad to send you some images.

    I’d also be interested in how you installed it. Thanks.

    To western flyer—how did you attach those awnings to your camper?

    To glcmranger—once you get set up in the Everglades, please send me pictures. Thanks.

    Thanks. I’ll look forward to the pictures. Where did you get the toilet bucket?

    Pat and Ray,

    Can you share the name of your insurance company? My Homeowner’s had a $3000 limit on coverage for RVs.

    Sorry Chris–I missed your previous question about what weather stripping I used. I got it through Amazon. 1/2″ X 1/2″ X 13′. It’s made by Magzo. In response tal, after I put the gasket on I applied silicone caulk on both the inside and outside edge of the gasket. Rather than going all the way around the galley lid with the weather stripping –in my first try going all the way around, the weather stripping would not stay put around the upper corners–I first cut a piece for just the top of the galley. I then cut two more pieces for the sides and butted the pieces at the corners. Galley is staying dry.

    Do you mean making a gasket out of a piece of anti-fatigue mat? Did you place that in the cap or put it around the opening? A picture would be a great help. Thanks.

    Thanks. I did find a picture of the bolt and cap. I’m still curious as to whether you kept the white baffle or went with the weatherstripping in the cap? Whichever method you used, any problem with rain getting in?

    That sounds like a really clever idea. I think I understand but if possible could you send me a picture of the bolt and the cover with the nut glued on? On the exterior, did you leave the white baffle on or did you replace it with the weatherstrip inside the cover?
