If you scroll back up to post #23, you will see the rivets and washers that I used. Definitely use aluminum rivets so they wont rust.

As for caulking, yes I did use clear caulk across the bottom. I put a thick bead down before I set the plexiglass in place so it would squish in. The top of the panel is well protected by the sink counter, the back site by the splash guard and the front, well I don't see how water could get in there so I left it alone. So just caulk on the bottom.

Related to this somewhat, we took delivery of our 2016 21SS Roo Monday. Opposite the black tank outlet on the side of the camper there is a female port labeled "waste tank flush" that would accept a garden hose. Is this something new? I was going to buy a Camco Quickie Flush and install it, but maybe that is what this for?

231KSS Mods

Love all the mods you've made. I just have to mentally get by using rivets on something I've owned for 2 weeks.

On our old Shamrock183 I installed shower guards using the supplied sticky strips and they did not hold well at all.

I was having a problem with the shower curtain popping out the bottom and flooding the floor when I showered despite being extra careful, but discovered the problem was the Fantastic Fan set on high was actually pulling the curtain out. Once I stopped using the fan until after my shower, I never had another problem.

Don't think of it as "fixing". Think of it as "improving", like painting the walls of a new house. You're just making something great even better.

Rivets have become my primary attachment method when trying to anchor things inside the camper. They work wonders.

I used stainless steel wood screws with SS finishing washers like these:

Search Results for¬*202249772¬*at The Home Depot

I put several 1x1's across the back of the cabinet for the screws to bite into. Cut the plexiglass and drill the holes carefully. It will crack easily.

If you do use rivets, do it carefully so when the rivet "pops" it doesn't crack the plastic.

Here's a pic of mine:

No more rubbing and if wind picks up I am protected. The packages are in plumbing isle of HD $2.97 for (4) 3 foot sections and fits tight over the top of the kitchen slide.

Does this stay on or do you need to remove the foam before you close your slide out ?

I remove them when Input the awning in and put them in the outside front storage area I think it might cause leaks if I kept them on by keeping slide from going all the way in, I am not brave enough to try that on a brand new Roo 😨

DK, how did you secure your plexiglass to the screen door? I also camp with dogs and can see the screen getting chewed up quickly by overeager pups. I orinally hoped to cut it just a bit wide of the frame and slip it into the 1/4" channel that runs the length of the frame, but now see that this placement will interfere with the opening of the access "door" to the screen door latch. Did you drill holes into the door frame?
