A while back our 23D Airstream developed a leak in its Freshwater tank. I decided to tackle this job of swapping the tank out myself. This is not a job for the faint of heart and was one of the harder repairs I’ve done to our Airstream. Took 2 days due to painting tank pan.

Home brew Airstream Mud Flaps

Posted 09-17-2018 at 07:21 PM by GMFL

I made a set of Mud Flaps from a single Big Truck Mud Flap from NAPA.

Hardest part of this whole project was finding the radius to cut the flap to match the under belly.
Here are some photos that will tell the story

Awning install on 2014 23D International part #2

Posted 09-17-2018 at 07:51 AM by GMFL

With the Rail now riveted in place, I used painters tape to mask off a straight line for caulking. Caulk the top edge of the awning rail with Sikaflex and smooth/“bed the bead of caulk with your finger. Once you remove the tape you get a nice straight line.
