The horn button on the wheel should power the horns. They are actually electric and liekly clogged if they no longer work. Sometimes they can be cleaned, I ended up replacing mine with electric/air horns from Camping World.

She is a 345 which in Airstream talk is 34.5'. She IS pretty to me, but nothing special as far as AS are concerned. It's a 20 year old rig with 116 klicks on the meter. I have to say that I am totally impressed with the construction of this MH. Like I said before, I had two SOB's and there is no comparison. I did have a 24' International trailer for about a year, but is was beaten by a HUGE oak tree last year thanks to a neighbor's logger. I will post some pix later this week of the interior.

Roof Walking

I have read the posts about walking on the roof of AS trailers and Andy's comments that it is done every day in his and every other shop. Does the same hold true to the motor homes? I would assume so, but thought I should ask before hauling my big butt up there only to find that I should have taken some special precaution.

Thanks.

JB

I'm getting anxious to use her. I may end up taking her hunting this fall. Can't wait til spring I guess...

I've not done it myself but a 345 is essentially a 34' trailer turned around with a motorhome nose bolted on top of a truck chassis (P30). So yes you can. Stay on the ribs.

Any particular reason you want to go up there?

Just to clean up the air units. Sitting this long they have crud on them and I have been told not to use a pressure washer.
I did take her to town on Sunday and gave her a bit of a bath at the car wash. A light soaping with the wand and some scrubbing with the foam brush. She looks better, but CLEAN will have to wait until spring. It doesn't look like we are going to get an Indian Summer this year. I did the bath thing in 30 degrees with a pretty stiff wind. The bay was about 24 feet long so her butt stuck out a bit into the breeze. Burrr.... Me, not her.

I do have some questions about the aluminum pitting and corroding through around rivets on the sides, but I will hold off until I take some pix to show.

On Roof

JBK,

If I were going to be on the roof for more than a short walk ONLY on the ribs, I'd put a piece of carpet and then a 1/4 sheet of plywood up there. I put some very minor, but still there, dings in my roof while sealing the spotlight. You really can't just walk around up there. Better safe than dinged.

Congratulations on the 345. Keep us posted - especially with pictures.

Best,
