Thanks!
They are pretty common marker lights Tap.

Airstream Supply have them, but most folks change to LED to reduce load on the headlight switch.

You should be able to get them at any parts house or heavy truck supply or truck stop. How many do you want I have some spares.

Ok, today they finally finished all the tons of tuneups under the proverbial hood.

The brand new radiator is installed and good to go. I'll get specific part and company info on the radiator when I pick up my 280 tomorrow and I'll post it here.

Next stop to get my set of new tires installed.

So far so good for staying on schedule to make it to Penn Wood at all costs (literally).

My airstream will be mostly a silver tent on wheels during the Penn Wood trip because I won't have had time to test (or fix if needed) any of the inside appliances or plumbing beforehand, but at least it can (hopefully) mechanically make it to the rally.

I hope Penn Wood has a bathroom and shower for me to use while I'm there. Hehe!

No worries mate, all of us will have fresh water and a BBQ you can use. I always shower at the campground as the shower in my 310 doesn't really fit my 6'3" frame. Just go out and get an electric cooler if you're unsure about your fridge. If you haven't got your propane system checked yet I would buy a ceramic heater for heat.

Cheers
Tony

Thanks Tony, that all sounds great.
I'm also going to bring a few gallon jugs of fresh water.

Tap, I suspect with the gear heads, spare parts, and knowledge base attending the Get Together any issue you have going into the weekend will be fixed before you leave!

I am a little like Tony, the on-board wetroom is for when no other option is available and typically use the campsite facilities. If all else fails I hear Brad has a hotel room nearby!

Am I missing a piece here on my screen door? Is there a sliding piece or something that normally covers this gaping square hole?

Yes Tap, there is a square plastic panel that slides out of the way to give access to the lock if opening from inside.

They are available from the online retailers or Airstream but come in a couple of different sizes so you need to be careful to get the right in.
