Sometimes it's the little things

I knocked out some of the little things I wanted to do this past long weekend. Pretty satisfying feeling!



I started by replacing the towing electrical connector. I put a new one on and rewired it so it matches my truck without having to use an adapter.



Next I replaced all the exterior marker lights. Cost about $30 and was well worth it. The old ones had started to fade and the plastic bases were deteriorating. The new ones are quite bright in comparison.



I found a good replacement radio antenna at the local auto parts store. Ours had broken off but the base was still there. I was able to get a "rubber duckie" antenna that attached to the existing antenna base perfectly.



I re-attached the large mirror in the bathroom. It had fallen off the last time we had the trailer out. I added a few rivets to convince it that it really wanted to stay in place.



Lastly I caulked the seam between the tub and the sink.



All in all it was a successful weekend working on the airstream.

Good job. Doing lots of little jobs always feels like great progress, doesn't it?

Getting my AC unit installed this weekend was a little thing in comparison to all the other jobs I have tackled on my trailer. I guess it is all relative... and best to keep relatives out of it!

Relatives, that's why we ended up getting the Airstream to start with.

One, because they all descended at the same time and we didn't have room in the house. Two, so we could vacation without them.

Now I wonder if the idea hasn't backfired a little. We are having more relatives visit this summer because the Airstream is so comfortable...
