1. Outside Beading Renovation   2. Washroom Air Vent in Ceiling replacement


Outside Beading Renovation

The beading around the awning rail, and windows were in rather poor condition, stained and inclined to flop out. This is an easy DIY replacement job.

I was not able to obtain the original style of beading so used a similar cross measurement, half round style was obtained from a caravan dealer.

While tighter to fit, it will give improved protection for the screws securing the whole trim<trim>

Replacing Washroom Air Vent in Ceiling

It was while I was renovating/replacing the discoloured beading in the van walls that I noticed a crack<crack>

I touched it and the thing collapsed in my hand! With a saw type dust. This vehicle is 6 years old!

This another easy repair for the DIY competant person.

Removal is quite easy. Just remove the inside vent with 3 screws.

Slippery cab step

 

Showing the step mat

Our van is now 17 years old and the cab steps have become a bit Shiney. Having slipped off the cab step once or twice I decided to produce an answer.

The answer was to purchase from a Pound shop some small carpets.

These were cut to size, actually one side was cut to shape, in the step well.

As this was an experiment I was reluctant to secure carpet permanently so I used carpet fitters double sided tape.

The carpets either side have proved their worth and no more slipping out of the van. They have been there for 9 months and are quite firm using the double sided tape.
