I like it. Cheap fix. Cheaper than Amazon, at any rate.

few modifications to my 19

fixed temporary water connections. Only cost about 15.00 . cheap cutting boards from Ikea and locking door . When I get the time will change to the better door with brass connection for water . Need to cut out fiberglass about 1 in , install everything back . Did't want to mess with now . This will help so I don't lose cap because , the lanyard broke from sun which I almost lost . Want a door over my water connections as I always have had . four a lamp I had in garage 3m taped to underside and screwed lamp to wood .

few modifications to my 19

had some plastic panels left from greenhouse . Cut to fit inside front cover . Panel are about 1/4 thick . fits snug and glued top with silicone in case ,leaving bottom open in case water gets in there so it can run out . It had eliminated the wrinkles a lot, at least by half . Also this insulation will help the window in hot or cold , because it is the one window not insulated . Pat

Myron thought of a little chain on cap . But decided I wanted a door . Will change at a later date to better water connection which are brass and keyed door . they are about 50.00 , but need to cut fiberglass and uninstall and install everything back . Don't have the time right now . Screwing the metal water connection to cheap plastic is not going to last long. Pat

I thought every RV parts store had those QC plugs, but they're pretty expensive to use to just plug an unused outlet. I think the new rubber cap is more functional, anyway.

I like it Pat. Over time the "wrinkling" on the rock guard seems to get worse. Might just have to try that.

Pat,
In your picture, where are the 2 latches on the backside of the panel?
