Contacted the Inverter manufacturer to help me troubleshoot why the inverter is not coming on, I am bypassing the dealer hoping to save RV downtime.

OK, where did you get the replacement windows?

Boy I hear you there! I contacted my dealer three weeks ago tomorrow about a plastic molding I damaged, to date I have heard nothing back. I dug around and found contact info for Rockwood parts and had the piece on its way to me in two days. I have also dealt directly with Dometic on slide topper parts and have been extremely pleased with their customer service.

I cut about 6 inches off the end of the mop handle, and used epoxy to mount the pipe fitting on the end of the handle. I also drilled 2 small holes and used some screws to secure it extra tight.

The extended handle screws into the threaded pipe fitting. Of course the threads are vastly different, but the pipe fitting threads seem to just bite into the extending handle thread well, and give a reasonably secure connection. We'll see how well it holds up over time.
From a quick test it seems that it works fairly well so long as you mostly sweep right-to-left (otherwise it has a tendency to want to unscrew)



I like that, might have to steal the idea! Thanks!

The bolts are snug above/below the frame, and should hopefully hold enough weight for stabilization purposes.
I like it.

You can't get in my storage compartments now...

Changed out the slam latches on our storage compartments on our 2014 Cedar Creek Silverback 33RL......used replacement latch from RV Locks and More, part #BLL-40101-2006...it's a very close match to the SouthCo R001 latch that was on it and that everyone out there had a key to.....had to add a 1/8" shim on the backside to allow for tightening....screw post were slightly longer on the new one....now all 4 compartments are keyed alike....had changed out the cam locks earlier to get away from the 751 key.
