Fortunately Mel bought TWO of these grids! He gave us the other one.... so Steveio jumped right on it and got out his tools to install it in our motorhome.
First he took off the bottom cover and measured carefully where to enlarge his circular hole into a rectangular one.
He took it outside and cut it out with a skill saw. Then he used a drill and rivet gun to use rivets instead of screws to attach the grid, which might crack the plastic. Soon he was back in the rig installing it back into place.
Snap the filters back into place.... Voila! now we can control the air flow that comes down on our heads if we wish, or with a little flick of the lever, the louvers close on the grid and instead it blows out the black end vents like it did before!
I brought the camera along this morning on our grueling 1.6 mile commute to Steve's workshop in the park. Of course, because I brought the camera, I didn't see ANY wildlife! Yesterday I did see a fat groundhog wandering alongside the road. I told him to get back in the woods and stay away from cars!
Seeing as I had the camera along, here are a few shots of the scenic view along our commute:

It is going to get hotter today, and more humid. ewwwww Tomorrow we have fellow Safari-ite John coming to stay one night in the park in a site right across from us. We hope to have a campfire and also fellow Safari-ites Mel and Paula are planning a road trip to come for the day and visit too. Imagine, three Safari Motorhome owners in one place? Our own little Mini-Safari-Rally!!!
