Metal piece across roof? HELP!

I'm looking for a replacement for the metal piece down the middle of the roof/top of a 1981 Jayco Pop-up. I don't even know where to start because I don't know what it's called in order to search for it! I can't even find a top schematic. Please help!

I would call Jayco, they can help you find out what you need to know.

My info (and most dealers) only goes back 20 years. Definitely a call to Jayco. Have your VIN handy.

My off-road POPUP did not come with the roof mounted air conditioner. I had that installed at the dealer as part of of my purchase. The dealer than cut the 14 inch by 14 inch holes through the roof and adds the boxing around the hole.

Then they add one or two ceiling support angles across the ceiling on both sides of the air conditioner install to give it needed support cross members. I don't think this is a JAYCO provided item and is done by the trailer dealers. Just like the batteries are not provided by the Manufacturer.

This google image shows ONE cross member angle where mine has two sections - one on each side of the air conditioner unit.

My install also has the wiring conduit like shown here for the 120VAC wiring cable to operate the air conditioner.

You can probably find what you need from LOWES... The best bet would be to go to RV Dealer that sells POPUP units and purchase one of their roof air conditioner install kits...

I think he's talking about the metal strip on the roof top that is used as a seal.

I think it is called a joining strip... covering the joint between the left and right sections of the roof...

Is it the type that two sheets of aluminum / fiberglass slide into, or just a piece of trim that covers and seals the seam? they have all sorts of parts at Aluminum Extrusion - Factory RV Surplus
