Simple job 4 fasteners and it lifts right off. Bit on the expensive side for what it is though.

They are not that hard to do.

I bought several from these folks and have had very good success with them and their product. https://www.icondirect.com/categorie...ioner-Shrouds/

Check Amazon and sometimes camping world on the cost. They may be a little cheaper than going direct to ICON.

Also, make sure you measure the depth (height) of your old AC shroud. They make 2 for the Brisk Air units. The height is different.

Just asking, do you know the right precautions for working on the camper roof to support your weight? Most all Sunline TT's unless custom order did not have directly walk on roofs. They need extra support when doing maintenance work up there. If you need help, ask away, we can tell/show you how to.

Thanks for the advice.What is the best way to get on the roof without damaging it?

Hi,

Here is one method.

Start with finding a solid surface to place a good step ladder stale on the ground next to the camper. See here


Next, you need to find something to place on the rubber roof to prevent abrasion to the rubber. A tarp, old sheet, carpet, something that will cover the area you are working in and will lay against the roof.

Then using easy to handle sizes of plywood sheets, place the sheets on top of the protective cover/cloth/tarp. I use small pieces that are about 24 to 30" wide by 48" long. Thickness can be 3/8" up to 1/2". Can use thicker but harder to lift. Feel for the rafters in the roof system which run from the left to right of the camper. The rafters are spaced approximately every 16" on center. Place the plywood so it spans at least 2 rafters, but more is better. This spreads your weight out over a larger area and is not a point load like your foot directly on the roof would be. See here


Be careful when transitioning from the ladder to the roof or roof to ladder so you do not fall. The ladder kicking out is a concern. Use the 3 point contact method on the ladder to the roof. 2 feet on ladder plus 1 hand etc. as you reach with the other hand on the roof. Then shift your weight towards the camper on the ladder and climb onto the roof.

When getting from roof to ladder, use the same 3 point contact method from the roof to the ladder. Put you weight on the side of the ladder closest to the camper. This helps prevent the ladder from kicking out sideways.

You can toss the protective cloths, etc, onto the roof from the ladder, then place a piece of plywood on that first section, again from the ladder. Then get onto that first section and add more sheets as needed.

I suggest you kneel and crawl on the plywood when moving. Lower center of gravity and more stable for you. If you have to stand up to straighten out, you can, just do not go walking around a lot like that to not lose your balance.

If a helper can hold the ladder stable while you get on and off the roof, that is better then doing it alone.

This thread may help some on changing the cover. Replacing The AC Shroud

Hope this helps.

John

I ordered my replacement shroud online. The hardest part was getting the old corroded screws off. Some shrouds take a little trimming depending on which AC unit you have. I was able to do mine standing on a step ladder and reaching from either side.
