So I need to just use the jigsaw to finish these cuts real quick and then this piece let’s pull it out so we got so looks like okay so mm-hmm looks like the I just didn’t have enough depth on the all my jigsaw my blade wasn’t long enough so it didn’t get through this so I’ll use the high speed to clean this piece this back piece up and score it and just break it away this uh this tubing is just tubing is is one inch by one and a half so I was able to cleaning through that which is good because I was concerned that that I might be splitting this um this this son this is going to come up here like this and we’re going to use those there’s l-brackets we should be good okay so my test fit uh we’re in it’s in there it’s sitting on the thing doesn’t look quite level I’m not sure about that year I’m gonna I’m gonna play around with it and figured it out I certainly want it to be as levels could be you know my hand I’m thinking as long as it’s sitting flush from the platform in there that it’s probably.
The trailer being out a level it makes it look makes it look that way but it’s in the cutout that I did up top is good once I once I get the the tube back up here and secured which I haven’t done yet I’ll be good my flange is here cover the opening I have corner pieces that were put in here so all these holes for fastening it to the trailer are going to hit the aluminum tubing in here so so we’ll be able to fasten and have a good secure hold in there so with that I’m gonna pull it back out okay and sit over here and then you know you know these these trailers are not have to be the best but they got to be light right so up in here in this channel between the two the exterior panel on the interior panel is just styrofoam so I’m not exactly sure how I’m gonna get rid of that styrofoam yet we’re gonna find myself a big screwdriver maybe a crowbar or something but I’m gonna I’m gonna try to scrape away and I have my shot back out here I’m gonna try to scrape away as much of this styrofoam as I can so that.
So I can get this this piece of tubing back up in between there and fasten it up so come back soon okay with just a combination of a flathead screwdriver the aluminum tubing itself I managed to carve our Channel and this will fit nicely nicely up in there one thing I realized is there’s still some welding on this this vertical tubing piece so I’m going to use the high speed grinder try to take out get that on that well off of there so I have a nice flat flush surface to to attach those l-brackets let me show you what I’m talking about and sorry these are actually three inch brackets but I’m going to use these these three inch brackets like this with some self-tapping sheet metal screws to par should do it that will secure it add up in there nicely and gave us plenty of surface area to attach our fasteners and secure the heater up here so with that I just got some clean up to do some shot backing and I’ll be back in a few okay my welds my welds are all knocked down these this L bracket will sit pretty flush with that with the vertical piece so movement do now is we’re gonna put the I’m gonna put this piece back in now.
I have my holes from the old piece so I’m gonna put that to the inside and I’m going to I’m going to turn those to the back so that no chance of us using those or enlarging those so we’ll put that piece back up in there and we’re just gonna shove it up there it’s tight as little gun give us a good push-up see where that is see how that lines up because this piece is vertical and this is a perfect 90 these l-brackets I’m going to rely on water heaters reviews that to get this piece lined up in there so with that grab my trusty cordless and I’m gonna put this whole bracket in there yeah we’re gonna hold it up right – lets just like that hey good good session it looks to be about level with that the that existing tube that’s good that’s what we want instantly so yeah fastener screw a pressure left-handed do our best here freshmen okay so let’s bring it in for a closer look so you can see in here uh these corner pieces you see those are now secured in there and they’re okay and that gives us a nice upper rib there so now what we do is I’m gonna go ahead in a shopback and then apply my butyl tape and we’re ready to push this thing in okay.
So I’m ready to start putting my butyl tape on butyl tape is like a you know the putty team pretty sick reliable to like know the old school days your silly putty but what it will do is do a nice weather tight seal to to the side of your camper along along on the strip now I’m gonna I have a lot of it and I don’t really have much more use for it after this so I’m going to use I’m going to use and fill the entire flange with the butyl tape whatever tears to the side and here’s whatever’s just uh hanging I left there knees up so it’s pretty slippery sticky pliable just go ahead and you know just get it on there stick it on there when you get to the end just going to use the edge to feel that that there are corner pieces once we get up there so we’ll do that yes here this package close kind of compressed together so just peel the backing off it seems a rip sometimes so killed this world and mm-hmm just go ahead and get it nice and what you definitely want is you definitely want to be covering the fastener holes with it because he wanted to you want the fasteners going through it and you want it to press right where your basser’s are so I’m going to fill that fill out like that back now I have now I have two good size here top inside.
I’m gonna go ahead and go ahead and do the same thing on the other side and then I’ll be ready to put this in and start passing it up okay so now I have all the beauty pole and you see a demo cover all the area and not leave not leave anything I sit like I said I had the butyl tape so I mouse will use it you know I made sure not to overlap so there wasn’t any kind of bulging but I made sure to try to cover it off the bottom stuff as well so with that we are ready to push this baby in get it seated and then we can do our corner pieces and start start with some fasteners I’m excited here we go okay so I have it seated in there not fully CD efforts in there one thing I’m going to do is try make sure everything is evenly spaced is top and bottom I know good I know on the bottom I’m sitting on that platform in there so I’m not gonna have any issues there I want to do here is I want to try to get this as centered as possible so about an inch and a hand here on this side I’m a little less I’m like an inch and three eighths so with that I’m gonna try to want to try to get it over a little bit more about inch 3/8 and I’ll engineer there so I’m probably gonna get.
It just as close as I can I’m not gonna be able to get it perfect so with that we’re gonna go ahead and give it a good smush get that butyl tape seated around there and get those flanges pressed against so that you’re in a good spot to have that fully seated um so with that looks good it is seated now let’s take a look closer look my spacing looks pretty good my corners there you can see and um yeah looks looks like it’s in there so we’re just gonna press it in okay yeah before I start putting fasteners in I’m gonna go inside and take a quick look just make every excuse me make sure everything looks kosher inside before I before I do anything like fasteners okay right back okay so these corner pieces are next thing and they’re kinda they’re kind of goofy they don’t really in the instruction manual give you a good indication how they’re supposed to go there’s a whole there’s a whole here on this flange and there’s a slotted hole here on this fans best I can figure you know it’s meant to go like that for some reason these don’t line up so my intention here is what we do is I’m going to use this hole.
