The electronic switch that you are considering is made by Intellitec. It allows two loads to be supplied from one 20 amp circuit breaker.

One load, in my case the microwave oven, is the primary load. The other load, in my case the water heater, is the secondary (sheddable) load.
Whenever the primary load is activated, the Intellitec 0714 electronic switch shuts off the secondary load and keeps it off untill the primary load has been shut down, then the secondary load is allowed to resume drawing current.

The following link may prove helpful in understanding the device. The installation is fairly straight forward if one has a basic understanding of 120 volt AC circuits and current sensing coils.

Thanh you for the info on the Intellitec switch. There seems to be adequate room for it behind my power distribution panel. Just have to decide how far up on the to-do list it should go.

bed compartment redo

This morning, I put the tops on the twin beds. I used as much of the old queen top as possible. The curbside bed has just one seam, up in the curved portion. On the street side, I left the non-hinged part that is attached to the wall. Since it was fitted to the curve, that meant adding new pieces on both ends as well as piecing the last 8" at the front of the bunk. The pieced bunk is well supported by structure underneath to form a cabinet behind the old drawer opening that is separate from the area accessed by the outside door.

I still need to build two drawers and three drawer fronts to complete the rear cabinet.

Because the motion of the trailer tends to wear the mattress over screws or seams in the bunk top, I taped the seams with "Gorilla Tape." This stuff is really tough and sticks like glue. In the photo, I have not yet taped the seam in the curved area since I will need to temporarily remove that piece to trace a template to order custom mattresses.

I also insulated the heat duct in the non-heated storage compartment. The insulation will be wrapped with plastic removed from under the queen bed for protection.

I now have an amazing amount of storage, far more and more accessible than under the queen.
Thanks for all this info! I am in the process of redoing my twin bed area and seeing yours makes it a bit easier. Do you have storage above the beds? Mine currently has nothing but I want to use the space efficiently.

Of course. there is the cabinet over the rear window that goes the width of the trailer. I kept both upper cabinets on the street side unmodified; the cabinet over the night table and the cabinet over the window. I rebuilt the lower bedside cabinet into an upper cabinet on the curb side against the bathroom wall. I am currently adding a wide cabinet over the window on the curb side.

I have an amazing amount of storage available. Not really to carry more things, but more storage means less clutter and makes it easy to find things I need.

I'm hoping you will post pics of the storage areas. I don't have the over the window storage or anything above in mine so it will help me know how to plan for it. I'll have some under the beds but would love to put something over as well.

I don't have any photos handy and the trailer is at the storage yard, but post #289 of this thread shows some of the upper cabinets.

You can put upper cabinets over the foot area of both twins and the cabinets can extend back almost to the windows. Just make sure that there is enough room over the foot area of the twins. The cabinets shouldn't come very far below the belt line of the trailer. Fasten the cabinets to the bulkhead, the wall, and the ceiling with multiple screws (lots of them). I use #10 screws into the aluminum through pre-drilled holes.

A cabinet across the rear is harder to do (mine was already there) since Airstream builds the cabinet and inner skin section and installs them as a unit That gives them a lot of area to attach the cabinet from the rear of the inner skin. You could put a simple shelf across the rear of the trailer, over the rear window, for lighter items such as folded blankets. A cargo net such as is used in car trunks would look nice and work quite well to keep items on the shelf in place under braking deceleration.

Post #271 also shows the upper cabinets and #269 and #270 show an upper cabinet under construction. Just look in that area of the thread.

I love posts like this that give me new ideas on using every square inch of the trailer to its potential.

Latest change

We have almost never used our oven except as a storage place for the toaster and the frying pans. A friend bought a Classic 28 just like mine with a 3-burner cook top and 3 drawers underneath in place of the oven. Hers is a 2004 and mine a 2005.

On the last day of a rally last week, we did a quick switcheroo. She now has my oven installed in her trailer and I have her cook top temporarily installed and 3 loose drawers plus a bunch of drawer slides and three rails to be installed in the spaces between drawer fronts.

Each rail between drawers was held in place by two pocket screws at each end. No glue. I backed out the pocket screws, leaving the rails held in place with only the cabinet finish. A quick whack with a padded hammer broke them loose without any damage.

Tomorrow is re-assembly day. I'll temporarily remove the cook top to give me easier access to line up the drawer slides

I have the Snyder fan kit to install like John shows in his pictures.

I have a 1972 27' international with 1 fridge door at bottom and small roof vent.

It looks like I will have to pull fridge to install. Anyone do this on trailer similar year to mine?

Also how do you attach the kit to the back of the fridge.

Steve

You do have to pull the fridge for installation. I made a box of appropriate height and used furniture sliders to pull the fridge partially out and turned about 30 degrees so I could reach the back.

Installation is pretty easy. There should be instructions with the kit and also on the web if you search for snyder kit. His website is a little messed up last I looked, but the instructions were there.

New chairs

We bought a pair of "Pico Chairs" to replace the chairs that came with the trailer. They are much more comfortable than the ZipDee chairs and they fold nicely into rectangular carrying bags about 5" thick with shoulder straps.

Unfortunately, the two chairs just barely fit into the chair garage. Because of their shape, they couldn't fit side by side. I removed the chair garage from the trailer and extended it toward the front of the trailer about 4". The chairs fit nicely now. I had to make a new top for the chair garage which I made from the top of the night table that I had removed from the bedroom when I went from queen to twin beds.

I'll post a photo shortly.
