Chalet a-frame owners is another forum for a-frame ideas and mods.

Hey mzak, was the Aliner forum you referred to the aliner yahoo group forum, or is there a different one? I am not too fond of yahoo groups format. I like the format of this Forest River forum. Much easier to navigate. I guess its a matter of what you are use to.

Yes, that is correct. There is also aliner owners club but information is limited if you are not a paid member but still can access some information that is useful. I am registered with chalet group and aliner group and have been for many years, longer than forest river forum as I was originally going to purchase an aliner. I found many useful suggestions from these groups as they have been around more years than forest river a-frames. I do agree that since yahoo has changed the format for these groups that it is not as user friendly but have found that it is a learning curve. The more you use it the easier it becomes. I do like the photo section of yahoo groups because only a-frames are in these photos vs forest river which incorporates all trailers in there photo section.

Not trying to "sell" these other groups to anyone just trying to open additional doors of info on our type of campers.

As much as other A-Frame forums are helpful, I do believe Forest River Forums looks at member mention of these other forums here as "mining" for membership and is not allowed. Just a heads up. I'm sure Turbs can offer more on that when he's able.

On another note, I did purchase and return the Barker vent stick. It definitely interferes with closing the roof panels. I purchased another style vent opener off eBay that someone made on their printer. It works awesome!

Did the same thing but with solid piece of PVC with notches cut in the end with my dremel tool; I added non skid tape on the other hand so I would have a good grip when turning it to open/close

My Dealer told me about this when I bought my Highwall this past spring.

3/4" PVC pipe, length to suit (I think I made mine about 32" long)
3/4" PVC pipe coupling
1" PVC pipe coupling
3/4" PVC pipe cap (to finish the bottom end)
PVC cement

I took the knob off of the fan and traced around it on a piece of paper so I would know where to cut the notches in the end of the 1" coupling. After cutting the 4 notches, try it on the knob before gluing everything together. You want a loose fit on the knob.
It is light weight, works great and stores easily.
I made one also since they made the fan out of reach of most people and over a cabinet. I use a piece of PVC and a long wire at the top to down the tube and just loop it over the knob and pull the wire to tighten and it works every time. I do like your design tho.
