We're just off of I-35 outside of San Antonio.

Thanks to everyone for their great tips, I'll give it a try this weekend.

New gears worked like a charm

Thanks for the great tips. We successfully navigated the roof of the AS, replaced the worm gears and the antenna raises, lowers and turns like a champ. My next question concerns the motorized component.

There is a control panel near the front right side of the AS which supposedly controls the Skyliner. Please let me know if you know anything about this set up.

Our '78 Excella has the same electronic control of antenna raising and lowering--but it doesn't work!! My Mom and Dad were Airstreamers in the 70's and my Mom remembers people saying that this feature didn't work very well back then, when the trailers were new. I'd like to know if anyone could get this working. It would be really cool!
