Lou. How is the belly liner fastened up? Still not able to get under the fifth wheel after hip surgery, but I am very curious about it. Thanks, Larry.

Thanks for sharing, always wondered what is behind the belly cover. From the "grommet" like depression on the old probes it appears (and good to know) that the tanks' walls are nice and thick.

It was a PITA to get them down (and UP!).

They were stapled to wood strips initially and then screwed with strips of aluminum to hold the plastic CorePlast firmly.

I had to use a razor knife to slice through the plastic held by the staples, then unscrew the metal strips to drop the plastic. It was difficult to work with that big sheet of plastic on a windy day. There were hidden screws, obscured gas lines, and the sides of the plastic were slid under the metal skirting to brighten my day.

Wow, I did not check for that.
Those photos would have been very helpful yesterday.

Excellent post Lou!

I am not sure about the thanks button, do I click it in each of your posts in this thread for you to get "FULL" credit or just select one of them?

Some time ago I started to remove the underbelly of our Rockwood. We are getting limited heat out of a couple of our furnace vents and I expect the duct work is kinked somewhere. I quickly realized it was going to be more involved than time permitted at the moment, so I aborted the project. I still need to tackle it, but it has already reached 100 degrees here in Phoenix and for some reason fixing the heating in the 5'er doesn't seem like a priority at the moment. I wonder why that is.........

Great post Lou and many thanks
