I am not sure what you are working with. My rig has a rubber roof. I pulled up the rubber roof around the AC hole. I made from redwood a riser that was tapered. The top of the riser is 3/4 high by 1in wide and is tapered down to 2 1/2in wide. I glued this to the plywood under the rubber membrane, then reattached the rubber with contact cement and finished the edge with endurabond tape.

Not a bad idea Oldbeek. My roof is aluminum but I could make it out of 3/4" plywood and seal it well with polyurethane however I'd have to locate some new "J" bolts. I like the low stance however on mine. I've yet to pull the unit because it was so windy the last few days and DW doesn't like heights let alone wind. She weighs only 115 lbs so she might have lost her balance on the roof. Possibly today!

Finally an Update with Photos!

First a question for those with older MH's This is part of a Jenson Vent lid assy. I've never seen one like it and still can't find one similar to it.

Continued!

One leg support with heavy Jenn-Air Microwave. Takes up to much room sitting out this direction. Wife has an idea. (Which means more work for me)
She says lets turn it 90 degrees. In other word that means for me to do it while she watches.

More!

Original Captains seats were very worn from the sun and leaks from corrosion and dried caulking made them look pretty sad. However the captains seats in from the Winnebago looked to be in very good shape. I swapped out the brackets and now have two comfortable seats that match the dinettes cushions also from the old Winnebago.

PO added these

Voltmeter and ammeter but wires exposed in back and just way to easy to bump when putting or removing stuff from cabinet. So with another donation from the Winnebago I cut a speaker cover in half to screw to the back of the cabinet shielding DW and myself from further shocking moments.

Last this evening.

Bunk bed mattresses. Original 1979 issue material. Still looked great after washing etc. Also one of DW from last night cleaning her last drawer.

I'm going to paint it with Kilz first. Gives good adhesion for wallpaper which DW picked out!

I enjoy seeing your pictures of the work you are doing. The end results are very good. While I have pretty fair basic carpentry skills, they are not anywhere as good as yours. All this work you are doing will soon pay back with dividends as you will have a good, solid MH. Im sure you are ready for that to happen. Keep moving forward, the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter for you daily.

Carpet installed. We moved in! Half of our stuff is in the MH now. Still have about 4 hrs worth of unpacking and moving stuff tomorrow. Laundry and that fun stuff. Both PC's are in and strong signal from the house. To dark to take decent photos but tomorrow will have a bunch!. DW is alread crashed on one bunk but I'm wired so it will be awhile for me. TV and DVD player are up and going so I've got movies and internet and my own home on wheels which took alot of hours and tons of money but she's paid for! Tomorrow after we finish moving stuff then we'll plan whats next. There are so many next's too!

My '76 El Dorado has an identical Light / Vent. I saw a replacement in State Trailer a couple weeks ago. Personally i'm going to replace mine with a new light that wont put such a drain on the battery's
