Not to mention having to reseal the proflex. Going in Tuesday for the coupler latch; will ask what tricks of the trade are used for this job.

Well a combination of a C clamp and tapping the vent cover worked. There is enough room to insert a C clamp through the front of the furnace and slowly tightening clamp with a small block of wood to spread the force.

Then I used a hammer on the outside vent cover tapping it with a block of wood to move it back in some. After doing this several times the flue was finally in place.

No popped rivets and the caulking held.

Another on the road job successfully complete.

Not that we are expecting cold temps in the Humboldt Redwoods next week, but it sure is nice to know it's there if we need it.

Humboldt campground has no services so we'll be dry camping while there. With the propane for heating and cooking, plus the solar for juicing our toys in addition to our own on-board water we will be nested in quite nicely.
