Solved A/C Return Air Filter Problem
Okay ... I've read many post on the A/C air filter problem that Forest River has left us all with. Here is my solution.
Attached is a photo of what I did.
I had some teak battens left over from my boating days so I put them to good use.
I routed a depression in the batten deep enough to hold a 1/4" welded wire mesh available from Home Depot and some filter media. I made a frame slightly larger than the existing return air grill and presto ... a cheap and easy solution to changing the air filter. I simply buy household air filters, tear them apart and cut the media to size. No cardboard or staples to fix their problems.
It would be far less expensive to use a different wood and stain it to match (I used left over stock) but mine match the wood trim in my 36CKTS very well. Maybe Forest River will contact me for the details or maybe even a contract to build some for them and supplement my retirement ... too darn easy and convenient.
Click on the photo and it will rotate to the correct orientation.
I personally think it looks good and adds something to the ceiling.
