Winding down a summer on our lot at Ponderosa Shadows Airstream RV Park in Lakeside, AZ at 6,600 feet elevation. Did not miss the over 100 degree days in Phoenix. Still have a couple rallies to attend in October and New Years. Have spent over three and a half months in the Classic and several weeks in the 23D here in early May.

The second home in Santa Fe is now sold and the Classic has become elevated to our mobile second home status. Next year hopefully will be more mobile.

Packing up this afternoon for a local weekend getaway! It will feel like a world away despite the 45 minute short hop!

Leaving out on the 14 for two weeks and two campgrounds. I have already packed the camper with clothes and some food. You wouldn't think I was looking forward to this long a waited trip, would you. One it is Halloween week and it will be 16 years of Marriage for us. That is not counting the years lived together. I NEED THIS TIME AWAY FROM WORK AND HOME. SO SO READY. If you are going out this weekend, Please be careful and may God bless you with perfect weather.

The Dometic CU434 stove is nearly installed and the new storage cabinet filling the space above the shorter Vitrifrigo DP-2600 refrigerator is tacked in place for fitment. Tomorrow we test the new appliances and, if the sun shines, will see the effect of the 9th 100 watt solar panel on the solar system.

A week of custom work will be completed.

Very interested in your fridge install. Which Dometic are you replacing? How much custom fitting was required? Any pictures?

Thanks,

Al

Week end getaway

In Albuquerque for a four day week end, our motel on wheels. When we take the time to be in the Airstream it makes us want to get away more often. Love our business life, but truly love it when we " slow down to go fast". The trick is to always plan our next getaway when the present one is over. A ton of people out here enjoying Ballon Fiesta week.

This work is being done in the 2014 31' Classic. Since the Vitrifrigo DP2600 (53 ⅛”) is over 10” shorter than Dometic RM3862 (63 15/16”), we created a box enclosure with a matching door above the refrigerator. The old volume was about 9 cubic feet and the new is 8.1 cubic feet with a DanFoss freon based compressor. Due to the extensive trailer rewiring for the solar system on trip #1 to A&P, the 120Vac power to the refrigerator is only energized when on shore power or a generator. The default power source is 12Vdc. When the inverter is on, the refrigerator 120Vac circuit does not get power nor does the main air conditioner.

The new fridge is about 9/16" narrower so in order to have a solid piece of wood to screw the trim to, we put a 9/16" filler strip on one side only.
