2005 Monaco Executive overhead air conditioner and blower vent louvers

The overhead black vent louvers are all cracked and the screw holes are broken off. The louvers can not be secured to the overhead. Does anyone know of any replacement for these louvers?

Thanks

Try salvage yards but I have had better luck spending hours searching on line and have been surprised at times. Mine has the same ones. Will do some looking.

1ghostrider-

Perhaps this one, or a similar one from the same company?

I've been looking on the internet. Nothing comes close to size or type. Outside flange is 4"OD, it takes a 2" ID duct hose. I drilled mounting holes in what is left of the flange; not pretty but it can be re-mounted now. Opening needed is about 3". I think a lot of Monacos of our vintage used this style with a rotating baffle. Here's what this vent looks like:

I looked everywhere on line and couldn't find them either.

Here's what I did and it didn't cost me anything.
The center sections where the air comes out, comes apart from the outside plastic ring. I had some lexan sheets from another project (plastic or lexan plastic sheets available at Lowes or HD). Then I took a 4" hole saw and cut out circles. Then I took a 2 1/2" hole saw and cut out the center. You need to be real gentle with the hole saw, especially if it's new because it will grab the material and rip it out of your hand. Just use the hole saw with little down pressure and take your time.

Once you get the second hole cut, you can drill the pilot holes for the 3 screws that hold it to the ceiling, or you can counter sink hole if your lexan is thick enough. Then a little light sanding, plastic primer (see picture) and final paint color. I used the 'hammered' look paint but you can use anything you like. Took the paint longer to dry than it took me to make them.Click image for larger version

Well done! I had looked at mine and it didn't look like the center section would come apart from the flange. Can you provide more info on that?

I was also thinking of making flanges to cover the old. Or if I could find a wide speaker trim ring, that may work too.

Hey, that looks really nice. I will need to take mine apart. I have 4 or 5 on the overhead that are cracked. What is the thickness of the lexan you have used? Thanks for the update.

disconnect the flex air duct from the back. You can't do it with the duct attached. My ducts were just screwed into the plastic--kinda half-assed When I re-installed, I used a small hose hose clamp.

The adjustable air 'nozzle' just snaps into the outer ring. Mine wasn't glued and came apart pretty easily. Hopefully Monaco did the same with your's.

I don't recall what thickness I used. It was something just laying around from a previous project. But you can use any thickness you'd like. I'd keep it around the 1/8" range, something reasonably close to the original thickness or your rings, but just use that as a guide. It doesn't have to be exact.

Now if you want to recess the screw heads, you're going to have to go a little thicker and counter sinking those heads will be tedious. A regular drill bit won't work. You'll need counter sinking drills so you don't break the plastic.

As a side note, you don't have to use Lexan. You'll pay a premium for that. Just plastic will work. It's getting painted anyway.

I wasn't as creative as you. Sue at Veurink's RV found some originals for us.
