I'm tempted to to to Lowes and buy a sheet of plexiglass and use it instead.
I would think $30-35 should be the going price, their just vacuum formed. Wondering if you could use a heat gun and form your own.

It is the first of the month so:

Just set the Norcold to propane for the day
As soon as it gets to be 8:00am I will fire up the generator for an hour
While the generator is running I will switch the water heater to propane and start a load of laundry.

I do this the first of every month.

I braved the snow and sleet to go out and run the heater and clean the AC filter....(brought it in the house to do the actual cleaning).... while there I cranked up the antenna and watched a little TV...
Calling for temps near 60 degrees later this week c'mon spring!!

Measured it for " Soft Mat" for the floor. It comes in at least 25-30 colors. My # 1 reason is to stop Tunce from slipping on the floor and it's warmer and softer on our feet at night.

Pulled the genset out of my 2950 SB Designer, tore it down and replaced the damaged rotor. Runs great! :-)

Hey Chaplain Ed
We are just down the road from you in Jupiter Farms. We went out to check for leaks after that terrible rain yesterday. Our 2015 Whitehawk has a small amount of water coming in onto the floor in the right front corner. Nothing on the walls or ceiling. Got us stumped. BTW DH and I are bith retired USN supply corps.

Hello Catmike,
Glad to see we have Jayco neighbors. I retired in '82 LDO Engineer/Diving Officer. Heading to Texas next month to visit a very good friend on his homestead. He's a retired Intel Off.

We didn't get all the rain in Indiantown that you folks on the coast got. My old (1996) Class C is pretty tight though so I wasn't too concerned.

I agree. I'd happily pay that much for a replacement. But I broke down and ordered a new one from Amazon today, along with the sealant and 10 more LED lamps. I guess you gotta pay to play.
