a couple of questions

-I have two battery trays, one in the side access door, one at the rear.
Are these for two six volt batteries? If so do you need to run both together, or can I just go with a smaller 12v? I am not worrying about boondocking just the need for the conditioning of the 12v and ocassional use off shore power.


-The electric shore power line is routed thru the rear access door, I am not sure where it is supposed to go? Is it threaded into the rear bumper like on 70s models?

Originally it would have been set up for two 12v batteries. No telling what you have now, you'll have to check it with a meter and see how it's wired.

year/length/model of stream?

if it is the one now in your forum photo, this 60s unit...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f167...6-a-68810.html

it LIKELY may have been setup for ONE 12v battery (mid/side access door)

and a previous owner added a 2nd battery at the rear.

again probably a 12v cell in parallel...

but CHECKING THE WIRING is the only way to be sure.

((and it's possible u could now use 2x6v in series OR 2x12v in parallel or ONE 12v battery ))

pictures might be useful, where is the univolt or modern converter located?

cheers

also as regards the tank and sewage draining- There is a pipe coming out into the compartment in the bumper and one along the rear left side by the bumper also. Which is which? I assume the one in the bumper is for a grey water tank.
New to me as I had later models.

and today I discovered that there is a leak ahead of the toilet. Have to try and figure out where that is. The input water hose is leaking too, but that is any easy one its just screwed on. Also a small leam at the front by the water pumpl seems to be a cracked hose too.
Diggin deper, finding more to play with.
