porthole

Postby RogerRose » Fri Jun 03, 2016 6:52 pm

1981 37ft sedan with three portholes. How do I take them out without breaking them. I took out all screws around frame. but they seem to be one piece. No wood frame, just plastic porthole then wall.
Thank You

YES, not sure about that does the inside porthole trim ring separate into two parts? inner and outer or one piece

I'm afraid you're gonna have force things and hope for the best.

You might look on the computer for a new one and get some idea how they are put together. Some glues will soften with heat, so you might try a hairdryer to heat it up first.--Ed

I had two of them out on my '78 over the winter, one to replace and one to re-seal. Remove the outer trim ring and the screws on the inside, removing the outer trim should let you get in and cut the adhesive/sealant. I might still have the broken one at home and could take some pictures but there is not a lot to them. There was no sealant on the interior side of mine, just the outside.
