Clear coat.

You can find a place out of the way and put a couple of drops of Nail Polish Remover on the surface, rub it off and you will notice a change of sheen if the clear coat is on.

Thanks everyone for all their imput! Another question for the group , I guess I left a light on and drained my new battery so have to charge it up, but I would rather just plug in to my garage electrical and run off my own electricity, We finally were about to get our compartment doors open (with no key!!) and see a plug with 20 ft of wire, but it has a different type of plug in. How to do plug into your own 110v outlet? Get a adapter from rv supply??

I am think of hiring a consultant for a day to go over all the RV particulars with us! Isn't there someplace to go to hire these individuals that do pre-inspections?? Otherwise I might drive ya'll crazy with my questions!

A local RV shop will likely have the adapter you need: 30 Amp to regular plug. Congratulations on the acquisition of your Caravel.

Save your money. Just go camping and learn on the fly. You might call the previous owner with any questions. Or go to a rally with other air streamers. This would be more fun.

We don't mind answering questions. How do you think we learned?

Have found the adapter you need at a good hardware store.

Nice way to find a trailer, enjoy.

Cheers Richard
