Here's some info on butyl sealing tape. I bought a 100' roll from Road Equipment for $9. They called it Roof Bow Tape as it is used to seal seams in truck trailers. It looks black in the picture but was actually light gray. I've read the gray is better than the black.

BTW - I tried to repair the bathroom vent fan once and found that even the parts that weren't damaged were so old and brittle that they just fell apart when trying to work on them. Replacement of the fan as a unit is the better option in my experience.

McMaster-Carr for SS truss head screws - nice big wide head.

My 2 cents.

Thank you, Leonard. I'll pick the butyl tape up today.

I have a 2000RDMS fan. Does anyone know what makes the little gear motor stop when the Dome opens all the way up? The pin came out of the arm and when I replaced it the motor just pulls down when the dome gets to the open position.

This product lasted 4 years.

Started leaking yesterday

It was great to come across these pics!
