Twin 6 Volt battery install & charger/converter upgrade

Posted 04-18-2019 at 07:44 PM by GMFL

Upgraded my batteries from (2) Group 27 12 volts to 2 Trojan T105 6 volts. This swap was mandated by waking up one morning at Stone Mtn GA campground to the smell of sulfur/rotten eggs, yep I officially cooked on of my factory interstate batteries. The water level was check religiously so I am going to blame the factory single stage charger. Before I installed the new Trojans I installed a new Progressive Dynamic 4655v charger converter.

Airstream Service Network
I posted this in a thread earlier, but thought it would be good to add as a Blog post.
Getting service work done on your Airstream if you are either (A) not able to do the work, (B) donít have the time to do the work, or (C) donít need to personally do the work because itís a warranty issue can be very challenging.
Returning back to the factory (The Pilgrimage to the Mothership) is often been stated to be the best place to take your Airstream trailer...

On the Road repair

Updated 03-16-2019 at 04:31 PM by GMFL

We are currently in Gatlinburg TN spending some time on the Redneck Riviera. While making the 6 hour drive up our panty door decide it wanted to remove itself from the cabinet. Well almost anyway. The 2 screws holding the bottom hinge base plate ripped out of the cabinet wall and 1 of the screws from the upper plate also was stripped. This left the cabinet door hanging precariously by 1 little screw. I was 1 screw away from uncertain damage to either the cabinet door, flooring, or both. I am...

Iíve got a couple of Clearance lights that are on the fritz, one is out and the other is intermittent.

The old lights where starting to get cloudy anyway. See pics...

Maxim Skylight

Just some quick photos of my Maxim Skylight install.
Maxim is a great company to work with and they provide an excellent product. It is very simple to order your new skylight by simply providing Maxim with the measurements of your skylight opening and adding 1/4” to each measurement to allow the new skylight to slide down over the existing roof curb.
