Fridge Vent Repairs

I did a quick Google search last night on ABS repair. I found a site (don't remember which one) that recommended using ABS cement. I picked up a couple of cans today and started playing. For some reason, somebody drilled a hole in the vent. App. 1 inch in diameter. This was in the area where there was a towel rack. Maybe they wanted the towels to dry faster! I don't like the idea of combustion gas inside the coach so I decided to practice on this one first.


I placed blue tape over the hole on the front. Then gave a light coat of ABS cement over the hole and tape.


Then I cut and placed a square of aluminum window screen over the wet cement.

I then put more cement over the top. I will check it tomorrow to see if it works out and post the findings.

Alumanutz,
How did you line up the rivet holes again after the repair was complete?
Thank you!
