Hey rob , I now have one left , It is my old plug and is tattered some but very usable ,especially if you dont have one at all . Dawn may inquire about it. There is an old RV shop down in fillmore here . The old gentleman has tons of old RV stuff and I am trying to get with him to see what he might have.
the renter on the property a relative, said he would be happy to sell me whatever I want but ... WHEN?! Im on the hunt! That cherry blossom rally looks like a great time . Keep cleaning Itll be awsome.

You know Scott. I believe Rob could use it more than I so I'll opt out so you can send it to him. I'll keep using what I have for now since at least its working and doesn't mind the rain.

bargmann plugs / recepticles /sewer cap

Greetings fellow tradewind owners !

I visited my local RV store here in town and stuck paydirt
I know have 2 complete bargmann plug sets . That is the cord end and the trailer end. I have both styles . style #1 female cord end , male trailer recepticle. style #2 male cord end , female trailer recepticle. both are bargmann trailer plug parts they are identical ,except that the terminals are just reversed . both will fit perfectly . RobandZoe and flyfshr are both winners today!! you guys get back to me on these. I will put up pictures here. I also have a bargmann cord end adapter plug as you will see . It is male terminal and the cap is for a 2 prong power cord . pre ground connection era. I may just keep that one. Now who is the person that needs the aluminum sewer cap? was it shari ? I read someones post about needing it very badly . You know its made of what I call unobtainium Well I will be looking for some feedback

I sure wish that I had a set of these when I got my trailer. Since I didn't, I cut a new rectangular hole for the plug I ended up using. I could go back to the original round hole that I patched but would need to patch up the rectangular hole I cut in. Not really gaining anything. Now what else did this RV shop have htat I could use?

I would have to say no to patching a squre hole to put in a round one . Sounds goofey doesnt it ? That being said one of those setups came with a larger mounting plate which is flat and is 4" around. Problem would be that it has no curvature to it . It could be " worked " if you really wanted to shape it. It is of a heavy gauge steel .Well if I had a roller setup like a metal fabricator has I would fit it to my tradewind for you then we know it would fit . Paint the plate silver and there you are. Anyway what is on your wish list and I can look to see what is there. I did last year find a aluminum sewer elbow for a 1960s tradewind for a guy in northern ca. I met him at the 2004 silver trailer social .

It wouldn't need any curvature to it as mine is in a different location than yours. Look at the first picture here and you can see what set up I currently have:

I don't know off hand the size of the opening of the square hole. What is the diameter of the larger round cover?

The only thing I really need and have been needing for a long time is an aluminum extrusion for the over the bed sliding doors. It needs to be 72 1/2" long. This item seems to be a rare thing because I have been looking for over three years. Any help would be most appreciated.

So thats your tradewind!! I love it . Seem it many time as i love to go to the tradewind pictures on the photosite . I have admired it for along time,very nice. Is that the plug at the streetside back panel ? I mean on the back ? If it is this flat round plate should do the job. The outer diameter of the recepticle is 3 and 1/4 " diameter The plate is 4" This plate is a bargmann item so it really would not be out of place if you use it .I wouldnt think your square hole would be bigger than say 2 1/2 or 2 3/4 " The hole size of the bargmann piece that goes inside of trailer is 1 3/4 .I think it will work .

Thanks for the kind words. Yeah, I'm hoping it'll fit over the opening I cut in for this new recepticle. I'll get out there tomorrow and measure it. We're finally getting some more much needed rain at the moment. Thanks.

installing new bargmann plug setup

flyfshr here is a photo of the mounting plate . Also do you have a picture of where this moulding extrusion goes . My rig is a double bed so I am not sure what you mean ...... exactly.Oh yeah now that I know your tradewind, your right you dont need much . And since you are in arizona the route 66 adventure seems like it could be a possibility . I will look for your other thread on that idea
