My roof project – Part 4, a square hole and a round hole!

Previous post: My roof project – Part 3, Olympic Rivets (56!)

My main goal for today was to finish the cutting for the Fan Tastic fan and dry fit the fan. The old Airstream fan had rounded edges.  The Fan-Tastic fan is an industry standard 14″ square.

I also cut the 2″ hole for the Jack HD TV antenna. I used a 2×4 that sacrificed its life for the hole!

I am getting very close to putting everything (AC, fan, TV antenna) back up on the roof. I am getting tired of seeing that tarp on my motorhome!  I’d also like to have it back functional.

One thing I forget was that I need to cover that antenna wire hole!  I have a piece of sheet aluminum to cover the hole.  Now I need to drill out my new rivets, add the sealant, and re-install rivets!

Happy travels,
