I don't do electrical-once you let the smoke out of the wires, it's all downhill from there. I can do basic carpentry. Husband does most of the mechanical stuff (Harley tech-he's magic) He welds. I want to learn.

Power tools are the great equalizer.

I'm in the southeast, Chattanooga, TN and love to visit new places and meet new friends. I am currently camping at Raccoon Mountain, TN for a bluegrass festival. This is our 23rd year of paricipation and there are more and more Airstreams coming every year! In the beginning, there were only 2 of us. I counted 5 of us last night!

Raccoon Mountain is a great campground. They have been making improvements every year and are putting sewer in at most sites. It is also close to everything in Chattanooga as well as all the outdoors stuff like hiking, canoeing, boating, etc.

Another good camping spot is DeSoto State Park. Maybe we can get a rally going there sometime soon!

GAStreamin - I do have some in my thread New Owners-67 Sovereign although I need to post some updated pics. In June we are headed to Rocky Bayou down near Destin, Fl. My daughter is so excited she has been practicing her snorkeling in the tub!

Hey KPosey - I've been in your area a time or two, TN is beautiful. I love the idea of a rally and Desoto is on my list to visit...so lets do it! My only request is that we do it in 2014 - some of us need axles before going that far. Would this be the first Silver Sisters Southeast Rally?

Eljay - my husband likes to say 'One wire hook em up, two wire smoke em up' I'm glad to hear someone else uses the smoke theory of electrical wiring.

Helllloooo there...look whose back

So I just joined another Gals vintage Trailer site up in canada....and had this awful pang of missing all my Silver Sisters over here on the Airforums. Well it took me a while to try and get back on - simply due to ISP's changing a few times.

Don't you love that cyber hole that is created - where you list an e-mail address but it no longer is available but the host just needs to send the new password request to that same e-mail - ha can never win that one...

So where the heck is everyone and how do we go about rattling the trees to bring the gals back here for a nice winter long chin wag... Yep that is right winter is fast coming and I just know there are some Sisters out there saying.....dang I wish we had those rip roaring campfires with all that wine and chocolate and home baked goodies here on line at our beckoning call.

...and the campfire stories of life, renos, ups and downs, new ideas and all that stuff. Yes I know our friends out west will make us jealous again with their Real Time Rallies - but there was a time where this Rally right here on line Rocked!!

Perhaps once a few of us chime in we can catch each other up...

Me well I'm alive, life moving on for a bit back to school and finished school had a great little starting photojournalism, then on hold for a bit while I recover from an ankle fusion surgery on week 10 of NWB with crutches and hopefully will be able to start WB in the next couple of weeks. Lot of PT ahead to rebuild muscles and tendons that have sat for 3 months. As soon as I can I really want to hook up and head south of the freeze line with my Friend Robin who has never been to the States yet. I sold our matrimonial home and Robin needed someone to help her recuperate from a partial knee replacement - so the timing was perfect - house closed on the Mar 4 and her surgery was mar 6. In April and May it was horrendously cold here and I could not get back into my trailer down at the RV site I was keeping her.
Turns out my surgery was in August and no need for me to keep the trailer there when I had a place at Robin's. So ModPod, Haily and myself are enjoying life here in Buckhorn a little place just north of Lakefield, with Robin as the perfect "nurse/caregiver". Nice for me too as it is close to my Dad who is now 82 - doing great and we get to spend a bit of time together every week.

Well that is it really not much else going on.

So come on down and say hello everyone....

I just attended the Albuquerque Balloon Fest and it was amazing. I had FABULOUS parking (2nd row) thanks to my new friends in the Central California Coast Unit of the Wbbci. The hundreds of balloons flew right over us. It was absolutely jaw dropping!! Hopefully the picture will post. I call it my "Time to get outta bed" photo. If you look carefully you can see my boyee sitting at the corner of the rig.

Soooooo.......I'm ready for my next trip! Maybe the AlumaFiesta in Tucson? Anyone attending?

Greetings

Hi everyone,

I'm joining in this thread as my first on the forum. Just bought my first trailer, a 1976 Argosy, same vintage model as me. I'm pretty handy but this will be my first chance to learn about electrical matters. I appreciate all womens' empowerment space so I'm glad to have found the Silver Sisters.
The trailer pretty much needs everything, and I'm ready to have a metaphor for freedom to go work on every day.

I have a random question-- I'm trying to transfer the title to my name and it asks for odometer reading. Is there an odometer hidden somewhere in the trailer that I haven't yet unearthed?

Thank you!

Welcome, abriel.

Odometer readings don't apply to trailers. They don't have one. But having to tell a bureaucrat in a windowless office that it's a trailer, not a motorhome may boost your blood pressure. Breath, smile, and celebrate registering your own trailer. Yay!

We have this online rally, but some of us also meet in real life. I went to one Silver Sisters rally on the central California coast and was inspired. It's a very supportive group.

For technical advice, you'll get more answers starting a separate thread rather than waiting for someone to find your question here. But for support, the Silver Sisters thread is a great refuge.

When we did this in Ohio, we had to have an employee from the license bureau come out and do an inspection. She looked at the "official" id tag on the body of the trailer saying its name, serial #, etc. She recorded all of that and they we got the rest of the paperwork done.

Hi, welcome to the forum. As mentioned above, trailers don't have odometers. Sometimes DMV just doesn't get it. I had trouble registering my trailer when it was new. I think the Silver Sisters have been asleep for about six months. They will be happy that you woke them up.
