Tambour door gone

Couldn't stand to fight with the under sink tambour door in my 78 Argosy another trip. Bob and I just finished installing our new door. It has spring hinges on it but if we are not happy with that after our next trip, we'll be looking for something sturdier to hold it shut. Never really stored anything under there because you couldn't get it open anyway. Now we will have a place for the toilet tissue, finally. Next project is the new Intelipower and 12v fuse panel we've ordered. Hope that goes as well as this does. Pretty soon we'll have that $50k trailer we've always wanted. You can see the new refinish on the sink and toilet too.

Hi, Juel,

Looks nice. Looks a lot like my 75, in fact. Just a note about the toilet: please be sure that you have a shutoff in that line. There's a thing called a ball valve in the rear of that Thetford Aqua Magic, and when it goes, the failure mode can be a never-ending flush (experienced once) or flooding of the bathroom (also experienced once). Why A/S put the electrics in the same area as the plumbing, and at the low point to boot, I'll never understand . . .

I used the bottom part of the cabinet to carry all my PEX and Qwest supplies, and I had spare PEX tube sections standing upright it the closet. There's also a neat black poly water tube in the closet rearward and toward the sink that my Argosy did not have any screening or other closure around. I had a mouse problem once, and that proved to be their entry area. (Little mouse, come on in! The Argosy's fine!)

Just went out to look for a cutoff valve. Oh my gosh. The shore water lines run over and around the Univolt. The lines from the 12v pump run over the Univolt. Who ever thought that was a good idea? I have ordered the new Intelipower and fuse panel for the 12v, so we'll have to get in there soon. Now we're thinking of a way to remedy this oversight from Airstream. We want to put the Intelipower up off the floor as much as we can, but I'm not sure about what we'll do with all those water lines. Can't imagine why anyone would think putting the water lines right over the Univolt was a good idea. Any ideas out there?

Hi, Juel,

I replaced all my water lines with PEX and put the replacement Univolt on two-by-twos nailed to the floor. I routed the rest of the water lines around it or under it and made sure that no junctions were anywhere near the electrical equipment.

The cutoffs I installed are all inside the closet, and I added a water drain for all of them in the factory cutcout that was already provided.
