I did go buy a set of cheapie wheel chocks, so I'll use those.
Thanks, Derek
Spring for some good chocks Derek, it's cheap insurance and it will probably make your leveling jacks happy not to be rolling off them too often especially if it's in the wrong direction.

Cheers, Dan

Charger/Converter

So,
Only 4 days after ordering my new PowerMax Charger/Converter, it's here!
My only problem, anyone have any knowledge or instructions on how to access the Univolt?
I have the 345 Classic Motorhome. My power panel is located in the kitchen area, under the drawer section that is between the sink area and the stove-top.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Derek

Let the LED's begin!

Photo is a 'former' florescent fixture in the Airstream. Looking like I need to get back onto eBay and order more, especially if this is just enough LED's for two 5 watt florescent bulbs. Spent more time online than I care to admit, trying to find some sort of graph that would show me how many LED's I need in order to obtain the same amount of light that the florescent lights did.
I did order 'warm-white' LED's, thinking I may go with bright white to use in the bathroom as well as the ceiling lights (5 total).
I'll see once I get this all wired up if I want to hold off until bright whites arrive. There are 4 florescent fixtures under my upper cabinets in the Airstream. One at dinette, one at sofa, one at 2 barrel chairs and one at the kitchen area.
1st on list is to get Univolt replaced this week as well. Think neighbor has someone visiting that may be a former electrician. May pick his brain tomorrow.
Thanks, Derek

Steve G, Powermax 45amp unit. Found it on Amazon, had looked at bestconverters.com, but was able to save $ by purchasing through Amazon. At this point, 4 months into ownership of the Airstream, saving $ anywhere I turn is a GOOD THING, lol.
Thanks, Derek

Is 45 amps enough? I have 2 group 27 Lifeline 105 and I want to treat them right so they last. I too have only had my 350 LE since May 2011 so this is all new to me.

'89 battery cables from underneath

This is what my battery cables look like from underneath. They hang so far down towards road surface, I'm really thinking I could 'snag' something as I'm driving. Does anyone else have anything looking like this? If not, what do the cables look like on your Classic Motorhome. FYI, these are the cables from my battery tray on the curbside of the coach.
Thanks, Derek

LED's anyone? Kinda $$$$ tho....

Here's some really NICE looking LED's. Jeez, they must be coated in gold for the prices! The one I truly like is the Vanity Replacement bulb. Didn't I 'nominate' Keyair as our personal shopper for this stuff???

Tampa RV Super Show

Ok, so Dean gave me the RV show with his pix from his local show out in CA. The Airstream TT are NICE. Makes me actually begin to think about the aluminum skin inside, but then I'd have to ditch my solid oak cabinetry. Maybe one day when I tire of it all. We'll see. If anything, a granite or marble countertop and dinette top could very well be in my future. As well, made sure to get the manufacturer name and address for the shower stalls in the new Airstreams. Mine sure has a 'soft' bottom to it! Guess I'll tear out carpet and check flooring first though.

Tampa RV Super Show

As well, I looked and looked for that one Airstream with the 'porthole' in the bathroom door. Neat setup! Bath has no window, so this is a way to let some light in from the trailer itself. Really am liking the Airstream TT's with the skylights. Now that is a nice setup!
As well, I keep looking at the pix for the roof A/C inside shroud. Doesn't seem as 'deep' as the ones in my Classic. Like the removable filters too! Wondering if these will fit on my 23 yr old units???
And since Dean (dadstoy) made sure to point out the padding above the entry door, had to get a couple of pix so I can figure out one for my own....

Hydraulic leveling jacks

Does anyone know where the fluid reservoir is for the leveling jacks? I've looked and looked through my owners manual, and am at a total loss.
Thanks, Derek

Mine is the back half of the pump. The pump unit is a round maybe 5" in dia. and 18" long. The pump is one end and the reservoir is the other end. It is a HWH system.

Cheers, Dan
