Water Heater Part

There is a RV parts store here in Fort Walton Beach, but he has some strange hours (closed on weekends). He does stock almost one of everything. If you don't get the part by Wednesday, give me a exact description of what you need and I will bring it to Topsail on Thursday afternoon.

There are two sensors, both have 2 male spade lugs.
There are 2 camping worlds in my path, I'll call ahead.

Chief, if they don't have them i'll take you up on your generous offer. Thanks.

D man, thanks for the info.

Leaving TX in the morning. Can't wait!

Well, I was hoping to be able to free up the valves for furnace and water heater but it ain't happening. We are bringing ceramic heaters for heat so we'll be good there and I assume they have hot water in their showers so that's that. I think I will try to stop at the Camping world and pick up the valves and hopefully some of you knowledgeable Airstream guru's can supervise (i.e. tell me what to do). I just hope I don't get the valves changed only to find another problem. I wish I could have got this fixed before leaving but I have run out of time, we are leaving tomorrow as soon as my wife is finished visiting w/ out of town family friends( should be on the road by 1 pm). We are probably going to stop at Lake Lowndes State park just south of Columbus, MS., unless the family visit ends early and we can get on the road early then we will go on to Meridian, MS. and stay the night around there.

I have been putting in a lot of late nights working on the camper to be ready for this trip as I promised the wife when we bought the Argosy that we would be able to use it as I restore it and that is just what we are going to do. We also didn't get the curtains made so I,m going to pick up one of those large motorhome sun screens to cover front windows. I ordered fabric from, that the website said was in stock, about 1&1/2 months ago and I still haven't received all of the fabric and I'm not happy about it.

I want comments and opinions on my paint sceme for the camper, I'll try to post a couple of pics before leaving tomorrow for those not attending the canopener. It's 1:45 am here and I have a little more painting to do before I hit the sack. See y'all there.
Different strokes for different folks!

I never learned from a man who agreed with me.

Glad to hear nothing is stopping you. Soak down those valves with penetrating oil before you leave and let them soak for the trip,this may free them up or at least make them easier to replace. I assume you are speaking of the propane supply valves (cocks) those are normally easy to free up.

Be sure to add a carbon monoxide detector, smoke alarm, and propane detector to you items to pickup if you have not done so already. You can always just place them on a counter top until you install them.

Drat. We're in Lake City, FL right now and have to check in at Crystal River today. Just no way we can get back up to the Can Opener right away.. too many miles already say the Furkids!! Anyway, we'll miss meeting all of you and getting suggestions on our planned renovations! Sounds like you're going to have a blast...(and gain a pound??). Are any of y'all going to the Springstream in GA??
MrMossy, sure would like to hear more about the curtains you guys are doing... We have our material and waiting to find a spot large enough to set up and start sewing!

Happy New Year everyone!!! Have a glass of wine for us!

Jed has nothing on me..................

We are carrying so much more STUFF than we usually do, the truck looks like the Clampetts are heading to Florida. Pretty much finished loading and ready to go. All systems are go.

See you all Thursday afternoon.
