RE: Shower Pan Reinforcement

Thank you, Covered Wagon.

Shower Pan Reinforcement

I have a 2005 Lance 1181, and I’ve noticed some give in my shower pan. Has anyone gone underneath and reinforced theirs? I would hate for the shower floor to give way.

RE: Heki 2 Skylight Inner Frame Failure

Thanks. I might not have needed to go all the way along the side with the sandwich, but since the failure was so catastrophic with the stop piece breaking off, and given the age of the skylight, I thought it best. I need to shine it up a little to remove the JB spillover. This fix addressed two problems - 1) the stop piece failure and 2) minimizing failure of the latches (which is the weak link in the skylight’s design).

RE: Heki 2 Skylight Inner Frame Failure

Well, it’s been a few months since I’ve had the time to attempt to implement my fix. I finally finished it today. I sandwiched the broken section between two slats of aluminum, attached with JB Weld and rivets. It doesn’t look pretty, but it’s not noticeable unless you are looking for it. I was also going to try the YouTube fix I referenced earlier in the thread with the locking bar to provide additional protection; however, my Heki must be a little different than his because the bar would not go straight across the bottom of the skylight bottom (apparently it bows downward slightly. So, I came up with my own version which are just two locking clips. I think this should solve the problem. If you want to try it, you just have to notch the clips to fit. I did place a flat washer in two places on each side at the ends near the clips the same thickness of the aluminum angle used for the clips so I could slip the clip between the HEKI latch and the skylight.
