Thats not a bad idea. No doubt the best place for the pipe to end is the highest point of the trailer that being the peak of the pop up. For that matter I could have a fitting end inside the trailer at the height of the closed lid position and have a vent mounted on the lid, then when I open it up I could have a rigid pvc pipe to put in place. Either way this lenth of pipe will be visible inside the trailer. It needs to look nice.Blotto Bros wrote:this is just a thought but segmented hose like they use on shop dust collectors. When you drop the top it will flex and when its open it will stretch.
The pivot point would be about 4 + feet away from the vent location. There would be a lot of later shift in the raising of the lid. Probably on the order of about 6 inches. My lid is not a straight up top but rather a one sided angle lift.bobhenry wrote:1 1/2 inch schedule 80 pvc slides neatly into schedule 40 2" pvc. This would make a trombone slide that will extend with the top as it is lifted and retract when lowered. Since the vent is using thermal lift to vent it is very unlikely is could or would vent at the slide joint.
For that matter I could make your trombone stack adjacent to the pop top. then after the top is up pull the stack up higher than the pop top. No real need to make the top and the pipe move together.bobhenry wrote:Buddy and I ( both auto mechanics at the time) were sharing a house long ago and were remodeling the old bathroom. We had a large diameter line , Drain or vent I forget which , but there was no combination of fittings that would get us there so we went to work and cross referenced a non collapsable radiator hose with the correct I.D. ends. Maybe this would allow the stack to flex enough to still work !
