    A couple of momths ago I replaced 2 on my Rapido.
    As your's, I'm pretty sure the internal measurements of the hole was about 390 and the 400 slipped in okay.

    In anticipation of the Heki being delivered this afternoon, I removed the old window this morning..hardest part was cleaning off the old mastic.. steel scraper, then a rag soaked in white spirit saw it cleaned..

    Window delivered on time..

    First snag.. the 390 x 390 mm roof hole was too small, no way would it squeeze in.. it really does need a 400 x 400mm hole

    so out with the jigsaw and enlarged it to 400 mm .. only cut 10 mm off two sides to make the job easier..

    Next snag, I had planned on using W4 mastic on a roll, but the Heki flange is quite narrow and has a channel for mastic.. so a good seal wouldn't have been easy.. the instructions said use a non setting mastic in a tube.. and sods law, I had no mastic in my shed..:rolleyes:

    No caravan dealers near me so went to Jewson and found a non setting , non drying mastic for sealing aluminium or PVC window frames to woodwork or metal..
    10 year warranty and made by Bostic.. looks good so bought a tube.

    Fitting was fairly straight forward.. but the instructions were over complicated.. I can never follow them, so once I had binned them it was plain sailing..

    Am really pleased with it, what a difference form the old dull orange coloured window.. it has really brightened the bed area up.. and will be able to watch stars when lying in bed.. nowt else to do is there :LOL:

    Next job.. boom arm tables.. :cool:


    couple of pics..
