It's a small job, but made a big difference in the looks. For some reason the plastic on the vent had yellowed in comparison to all the other white, so I painted with Hammered Aluminum.

just finished installing the aluminum drip covers over the windows. They look great I thought about painting them red to match the paint on the 150 but wife think they look good as is.GBA!!SVJ

I used stainless steel self tapping screws 8by 3/4''. The tape is white round rubber with on side sticky from Home Depot about $5 for a 25 ft roll works great. Able to keep window cracked even in light rain if wind is not blowing. Let me see if I still have the photos, If so I will post them.GBA!!SVJ

notice first pic gutter barley covered window. Bought the next ones 2 inches longer. I read a post some time back about awning interfering with the install but I had no problems.I bought the gutters from an RV dealer in Reno not the ones on line.GBA!!SVJ

efranzen:  Using aluminum paint was a great idea!  Some of the plastic of my Retro is not aging gracefully, so I appreciate your post. What brand of paint did you use?  Did you sand the plastic or use any chemical prep?

I wiped it down with alcohol to remove wax and grease and sprayed it with Hammered Aluminum from Rustoleum. It was odd that this one piece of plastic yellowed so much more than the rest. Must be a different type.

It started off yellow. They make the vents in two different shades of white, Colonial White and Polar White. It seems Riverside used the former, which has a yellowish tint to it. See this thread.

thanks for the screw size. I used #8 x 3/4 stainless steel, primed the screw heads and painted the same color as the the drip caps which I also painted. They came gloss white but not very consistent. I pre drilled my drip caps. Used putty tape behind.  The wife approved  all is good. Installed merely for esthetics  1458D862-751A-4C8C-910B-BE6020ADDA71.jpeg  89237EDA-6616-45ED-B7EA-805C2ED8CE9F.jpeg
