RE: Rear window exploded!

Any glass shop can make a plexiglass panel to fit your frame. Look for scratch-resistant plexiglass if you take this approach.

RE: Small Class C with out tow car

We have a 23 foot Class C and use it for touristing around regularly. We're down to five to ten minutes to get it road-ready if we're not connected to services, the full ten if we're hooked up. Even when we have full services, I don't tie into water or sewer when we pull in; just electricity. This makes it easier to leave and come back. If we need to top up fresh water or drain the waste tanks, I'll hook up to do that, and then put all the hookups back. We have a preflight checklist, which helps. When we get to town/places we're visiting, I have to pay attention to parking, but I've never not been able to find a safe/unobtrusive place to park.

RE: Sagging headliner

Thanks, everyone. I wrote Winnebago, too, and got this useful answer this morning: "We have seen instances like this where the headliner adhesion has let loose. Unfortunately, the only way to make a proper repair is to remove the old fabric and glue up new fabric or just replace the whole panel with the fabric already glued to luan paneling. This can be quite the task depending on how much fabric is coming loose from the panels. Depending on where and how much it is falling, you may be able to secure it using batt strips, upholstery tacks or rosettes. Those are just a couple of options that we have heard other owners doing." This implies that there is something up there to which I can attach screws/tacks. Well, that'll be another fun project, unless I succumb and let an upholstery shop invade my wallet.

RE: White-Rogers thermostat issue.........WARNING!

I suppose the good news is that your water lines didn't freeze. Sounds like an engineer who didn't understand the requirements of the installation chose that one.

Sagging headliner

The headliner on our 2007 Itasca Navion is sagging: https://sellpiratepictures.files.wordpress.com/2020/03/loft-headliner-sag.jpg?resize=219%2C219 I'll be grateful for advice on how to reattach it, and also for any advice on whether this Means Something (say, water leak), or if it's just age.

Water fill question - permanent flex hose

The water fill on my 2007 Itasca Navion looks like this (circled, top left of photo): https://sellpiratepictures.files.wordpress.com/2020/03/water-fill.jpg?resize=219%2C219 I use a Culligan filter housing to feed the chlorine into the tank when filling, and attach one of those short sections of flex hose to the inlet as the first step, attaching the filter housing to the flex as Step 2 (flex shown, this time with arrows*): https://sellpiratepictures.files.wordpress.com/2020/03/water-fill-with-flex.jpg?resize=219%2C219 The filter housing, by a lovely coincidence, is the right height to rest on the floor of the water utilities bay, so I can just screw the flex to the housing and move on from there (line filter, pressure regulator, water hose, plenty of other little bits to make it all fit). It's occurred to me more than once that things would be easier if I just left the short length of flex permanently attached. Can anyone suggest why I shouldn't do that, or is it a fine thing to do? As shown in the picture, I would cap off the flex when I'm not filling the tank, to keep contaminants out. -------- *I figured, one circle, some arrows, and a paragraph here because you can't see paragraphs on the back of an electronic picture, and I'd be set.

Custom replacement sliding window

On our 2007 Itasca Navion, the designer got fancy with the window above the kitchen counter: it's a top-pivot window, activated by a little worm drive-and-gear arrangement. Clever, except the worm shaft runs on one bearing, which, when it wears, results in the worm not engaging the gear. It now won't open without a lot of fussing, and also doesn't close entirely. On a recent trip to the Palm Springs area, which included a couple of very windy nights, the shade was rattling constantly as wind blew through the gap. I've thought about solutions, but am now considering just replacing the window. If I do, I'm inclined toward a sliding window: simple, more reliable. Searching on "custom RV window" offers me lots of sources (some of which, from the pictures on the websites, use the same actual manufacturer). I'd appreciate any recommendations from experience of a good, not obscenely expensive, supplier.
