New chrome rubrail and what we found behind it ?

Posted 11-29-2018 at 08:49 PM by GMFL

So we finally got around to replacing the chrome rubrail on our 23D as it was starting to look a little ratty for our taste. No big deal right? Just order new rail pull off the old and stick on the new.....
Well it was what we found behind the rubrail that stopped us short of a quick project and turned this little clean up job into a half day job. The screws that Airstream used from the factory were just cheap raw metal screws and they were rusting quite bad. Now our trailer is stored under...

Bumper Lid and Battery box Lid pads

Posted 11-27-2018 at 09:59 AM by GMFL

I got with Thomas at Aqua Marine Deck and had these great closed cell foam pads made for my rear bumper lid and battery box lid. They look great and provide protection from thing laying on top of the lids. These in the photos are a little dirty (just got home from 2100 mile trip and have not washed yet) and have been on our 23D for 2 years. They clean up great and still look new. I think this is a great solution for those lids that are prone to scratches. Call Thomas at (404) 354-6204 or check out...

Rob/RFP’s Extra counter space MOD

Posted 11-26-2018 at 04:30 PM by GMFL
Updated 11-26-2018 at 04:34 PM by GMFL

This is a great idea that Rob/RFP from the 23D thread came up with that allows for a ton of additional counter space. Adding a second slide to the 23D’s galley slide out strengthens the whole thing up real nice.
Installing a couple of poplar wooden supports on the inside walls of the slideouts cabinet with the supports top approx 1/4” above the slide allows the extra countertop slide to be tucked away and not be in the way when not needed.
When needed all you have to do is slide...

200 watt solar install

Posted 11-25-2018 at 06:57 PM by GMFL

I decide to install a couple of Renogy 100 watt Solar panels on the roof of our unit to help kee- the Batteries charged while traveling without hook-ups. I used the Airstream 10ga “prewire” for my install from the roof top panels to the Victron 100/30 solar controller and then used 6ga wire for the rest of the install. I ran the (2) Renogy 100 watt panels in parallel which allows each panel to operate independently of each other so shading one panel would not kill the whole system. I installed one...
