The "do more" part of the license plate started to reveal itself.
The first "little" repair: the darn step will not extend. That should complete the repairs need to this fine coach...........

hmmmm, looks so darn familiar, except just about every part has to come from the US. No quick run to the Autozone around the corner

Marcus asked me to post this picture, which include the former caretakers of Bangles, Bill and Jane. Here are is comments:
They were so kind people! Their hospitality was endless! They cleaned her up, filled propane, water, we left with a FULL tank of gas and Jane prepared lunchboxes for all of us, once we left. We were invited to stay, untill the RV shop finished the jobs, they spent hours and hours with us to go shopping and buy stuff, we may need on the trip. Then we celebrated easter together before we were -finally- allowed to leave.

After what you described to me and yours pictures, all symptoms and all the fluid points to a defective Master cylinder.
Like I said before, keep the hydroboost, check all measurements on the new master cylinder and go!!
Here are some pictures of the assembly

Wir fahren fahren auf der Autobahn

After getting the booster and the MC replaced, Marcus is now on the way to Hamburg for the famous Christmas market.
Here are his first pictures cruising at 60 mph on the Autobahn (which is max speed allowed for that type of vehicle). Now the engine temp is around 200 with very low outside temperatures.
He was complaining about the heater just being luke warm with the heater core valve wide open. I suggested to check the type thermostat used, once he gets back home

Christmasmarket!

Hello my fellow Airstreamers!
The trip to Hamburg was the first "long" tour (300mls...!) after these months of fumbling and major repairs.
I enjoyed every mile!!!👍👍👍
The drive speed of +/- 60mph is perfect, even if it is not allowed here.
Every Vehicle above 3,5 tons of total weight is limited by 80km/h (50mph).
Anyhow, it was a nicht trip...!😜
I arrived safely and parked here in front of zhe townhall, thank you Peter for posting the pictures for me!!!
We will today fill our booth with our products, see where we are:
www.hamburgerweihnachtsmarkt.com
Anja is in Goslar (www.weihnachtswald.de), about 140mls from here.
She has a similar booth, but no Airstream there...😢!
We will see, maybe next year "Wanda" is ready for here.
(1975 International Ambassador 29' , still in Iowa, needs to be shipped)
Love to hear friom other market traders!!!!
Have a great time, i eill sent more pictures from "Bangles on tour"!

Great pictures, and looks to be a wonderful adventure.

I remember a Christmas market in Nuremberg in 1971. I still have the ornaments purchased there.

Enjoy!


Maggie
