This is the rear vent cover. If you've been following along, you'll recall that we manufactured the temporary cover because it had been covered with a piece of plywood that hadn't held up over the years. It was finally time to retire our temporary cover! Mike spent SEVERAL hours up on top of Maude with a heat gun melting and scraping the tar that someone had used to try to get the vent to stop leaking.
It was at this point that we went to install the AC unit! UNFORTUNATELY, we hadn't read the instructions very clearly... the AC isn't installed over the roof vent frame. You're supposed to REMOVE the frame. *sigh* ALL of that work for nothing! LOL
After realizing our mistake, we called it a night. I'm pretty sure we both sweat several gallons over the course of the day and needed some time to re-hydrate and problem-solve the way forward ;)
This weekend was a real mixed bag in terms of wins and losses ;) But the AC is ready to be wired! And those patches are the cutest! And we survived a REALLY hot weekend (with the help of tons of water and gatorade!)
Stay healthy! <3 Becca
