Got the new gasket on,it is about 3/32" thicker than the old one. Took a fair amount of filing on the hinge holes to slot them enough to get the door to close.But it fits and closes better than brfore. Also mounted a piezo ignighter over the burner. The flint wheel on the original striker was smooth as a baby's bottom, could not locate a new one. Helen is happy with the door holes epoxeyed shut, she was afraid of monsters in the night climbing out. With the new paint, and cabinets sanded and linseed oiled that portion of the Airstream is not looking so scarry.

Load your pictures onto your computer some place that you can remember (don't ask why I feel that is important!). When you make your post, scroll down to the section that says "Additional Options" Then go to the box "Attach Files" and click on "Manage Attachments". When you click on that another box will come up where you can download four photos. Click on the browse button, find the picture you want, and download it. If you forgot to give your photos a unique name and you just see the photo numbers, put the cursor on the number, right click and hit preview. Keep your photo sizes small so the load time isn't excessive.
I have done the fridge repairs you are working on. Check out my blog at

Cool! Love the pic infront of that gas station, it looks like it just belongs there! As I was looking at the pics, all I could think of was, "where was this trailer located? Everything looks so dry, just dusty?" Then I saw AZ in your profile. You got a nice find! Love the swamp cooler.. it just looks like it would cool you down.

I like that it even came with a bar of soap.... : )
Nice Boston, too - great dog!
Welcome to the forums!

Got back from the chopper fest in Cottonwood,Az. Lots of kool bikes. Pulled the
airstream with my brothers 2008 F350 dually. It was easier on the Airstream than my 1995 F350 SRW, I shall have a look at revamping the springs on my truck. Maybe my axles arn't as bad as I thought. The fridge performed well, stayed at about36 degree's during the day,not bad I thinkfor an original unit. I added some extra baffles around the burner and it stayed lit while traveling. Will add pics as soon as Helen gives them to me.

As requested here is where the new fridge door gasket came from. Sealed Unit Parts,Allenwood,NJ. www.supco.com I bought the gasket from a warehouse in Las Vegas,Nv. $42.00 Now I can't find the pics of the repair- Drat!! But the fridge looks and works good. Except the worthless chinese made piezo igniter. It ceased functioning about three lights after I got the fridge bolted back in place. So I purchased a fine Benzomatic(chinese made of course)lighter to light said unit with. Why have we shipped ALL our manufactering capability offshore?? The Benzomatic lighter was purchased at a NAPA Parts house,they used to sell American made products. Maybe one of our fine presidentail canidates could address that subject!

Another fine camping trip just ended.We traveled 75 miles to Burro Creek,Az. for theee days. I tried something new to help with the worn axles. I disconeceted all four shocks, with the sagging axles the badly worn out shocks had about a inch of travel before they bottomed out. with the shocks removed and 30 psi in the Airstream tires, the ride was much improved. Hopefully new axles from Inland this winter. We also scored some very kool fullsize 15 " hubcaps for 20 bucks. A small junkyard on the side of the road in Wiekiup,Az. They are 70ish Ford stainless steel hubcaps. The Airsteam looks a bit more stylish with shinny wheel covers.Also the loctite on the screw in the bathroom vanity held, no more loose screw in that area. I had my dougts about it holding in fiberglass, I was pleasantly supprised.

We had lunch there yesterday. Great place to eat. We have eaten there about 4 times. They have a 1968 Caravel(I think) outback. Th building looks like it is out of an old Clint Eastwood movie, BRIGHT red.
