    Yep, I used that in an enclosed trailer we used for sleeping in on hunting trips about 10 yrs ago. It works well.

    I also plan to run 320W(2 panels) of Renogy flexible solar panels and a 5000btu A/C. It's a 450W unit with a peak of around 850W on start up. I haven't really study on what all I'll need for the solar. I know I'll need a controller, inverter, etc. I just don't know how many batteries and the small details.....or if I'll just need to get a quiet generator(generac iq2000) for the A/C.

    Used it in the south wall of my (uninsulated:rolleyes:) garage. Made a difference. Also used it in our last camper.

    Still working. Started training my replacements. Will probably see 1st shift early July:facepalm:
    Oh well we'll probably be locked down until then anyhow.
    Moderate risk so I wear a mask when I'm around people. Trying not to catch any COVIDS!:fingerscrossed:

    I don't think JB weld is your answer. They way that thin aluminum flexes, I see the JB weld pulling free of the aluminum.

    Are you doing this just to prevent water leaking?

    If it was me, I'd just use some 100 miler per hour tape or some Tacomaworld bumper stickers. Maybe email @tcBob for a few extras. I know there is gonna be quad copters at Moab.

    Getting things to paint or glues to stick to aluminum is tricky. Aluminum never really stops tarnishing. It needs to be primed with Alodyne to get any paint to stay stuck on it permanently.

    @gixxerphil look into some "trailer repair tape" its a butyl rubber backed with a thicker foil. Used it once on a enclosed trailer someone dropped a ladder on As a temp fix. Sold it 3 years later, same tape on it and sealed as tight as the day I put it on. Can buy it in rolls and strips. I'll look for the name/brand when I get home and post a link. I think I've even seen it at truck stops. I've seen it used on trailers when forklifts don't stop in time.

    The only issue I have with tape is I want to put flexible solar panels on the roof. I just don't want to worry about the tape ever coming lose and causing problems down the road. The tape would more than likely last as long as I have the camp trailer...….but I'm kinda stuck on a permanent deal right now. :rofl:

    How long have you been trying to get to 1st shift? Feels like a year or more.
