Just started looking at this thread and the 24RBS has the same floor plan like our 2019 248RSBW.
Many useful tips here!

Hi Bob: on this fan replacement, how was the installation? Did the original fan remove easily?

missey365,

Removal of the original fan was straight forward, and I was glad to see it go.

Installation of the new fan was also non-eventful, but a 3rd hand would of come in handy

joybulb,

IMO, yes.

If your 2019 184BS Baja is still under warranty you may elect to delay the application of Eternabond, but you will want to be diligent in inspecting "all" caulked seams/joints/trim, etc., at least 2-3 times a year. Keep an eye on the 'low quality' OEM black sealer tape (covers screw heads) used on the slide roof as well.

Since Jayco holds the RV owner responsible for maintaining all the caulked seams/joints/trim, etc., I elected to apply the added protection (Eternabond) while under warranty, I didn't see any warranty conflict in doing so.

Bob

thanks yes, out of warranty, bought from a lady who used it once or twice. So eternabond on the slide screws then too, got it. I’ve been keeping an eye on this forum for tips. I’ve attached a photo, assuming I put eternabond over the entirety of the „pooled“ sealant(2), which I think is dicor. What would I put over the black sealant they used in on(1)?

what brand/type of silicon are you using here? I though I read somewhere in this forum that run-of-the-mill hardware store silicon isn’t the best thing to use

Yes, you want the Eternabond to cover the entire 'pooled' Dicor sealant so the Eternabond adheres to the roofing material beyond the sealant.

I first applied the Eternabond over the length of the roof/front cap joint (and associated sealant) terminating the Eternabond at the 'raised' front cap/side wall black metal trim. I then applied the shorter length (to suit) of the 4" wide Eternabond to cover the raised black metal trim, black caulk, and a portion of the roof/front cap joint Eternabond.

I agree...., OSI Quad clear sealant would be a better option for clear applications.

I've also used a plastic putty knife removing the excess Butyl putty tape along the top of the metal gutter rail, the applied Dicor non-sag caulking (photo). I also use painters tape to control the application area of the caulk.

+1 on the OSI Quad clear sealant.

What type of roller are you all using to put down the Eternabond?

I ordered sikaflex 221, do you reckon that will do the trick?

I'm not familiar with it, but I do know that it is used for RV applications and have seen it referenced on some RV forums. If your using it for the gutter rail application make sure it's not the "self-leveling" version.

Also, you may want to do a test application (about one foot) along the gutter rail just to get a feel on how it is to work with and smooth out with a finger (this is where the painters tape comes in handy )

lroyson,

Mine is an older 3" roller..., same as the following at Home Depot.......

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Bon-Tool...-526/305903882

Another option: The following 2" roller (a little pricey) but looks like a solid product..., much better than those cheap plastic 2" rollers that self-destruct under a little hand pressure (been there, done it).....
