Couldn't let KeyAir be the only one to purchase a roll of LED's. Found these on eBay, $13.00. Free shipping, although LED's are coming from Australia, so it will more than likely be 1st of the year before I receive shipment. For that price, I'll be heading back to seller to see if I can get tail-light board replacements, as well as for the monstrous back up lights.
Thanks, Derek

PS-Oh, Santa 'may' be bringing me the sweat-shirt, so didn't purchase that, lol

Its a CASCADE windfall, that benefitted the Airstream...

A family member moved house, and 2 TV's were surplus!
A 42" 1080P LCD, and a 17" Magnavox LCD TV.
The 42" displaced our 32" Samsung 720P TV from the bedroom, and its going into the Airstream!
The 17" will go it the bedroom of the Airstream!

Samsung 32" will go on a mount for safety near the Sofa/Dinette.


Magnavox 17" undergoing a fitting test in the bedroom!!


Pretty excited!

Steve,
I look forward to your TV mounting methods. I'm sure they will be ingenious and I hope to copy them. Of course liberal royalties will be paid to the inventor by way of gracious Thank You's...
Bill

LOL, its lower on the priority list, but here is the plan....

The small Magnavox, I already have a small VESA mount, and it will be in the bedroom mounted where I had it leaning in the pic, albut about 3" higher, just below the light switches.
Good thing about this TV is that its transformer takes normal 110V and stepsit down... the actual TV input is 12v DC! So we could, in theory use in when boondocking off the batteries!

The Samsung TV will be on a modified arm wall mount just behind the cockpit passenger seat. This will allow me to have it right behind the passenger seat, facing rearward. At 45deg, and flat against the bodyside window for viewing whilst sitting on the sofa..

Both TV's will be on a drop in pin for removal when the AS is stored.

Oh....
My Powerprobe 3 is ordered and on it way...
And...
I got a deal on a Powerprobe ECT2000, short circuit tracer... so that will be with me soon too!

Need them to trace these Airstream wires... fuse blows evey time I replace it! Its the fuse that feeds the horn, radio, and 12v accessories....
Already found a piece of silver foil jammed down inside the passenger side 12V cigar lighter receptical... I bet that did not help!

I think when the Britsh Motor Industry was on its way down... they all left the UK, and went to work at Airstream!

I'm actually considering installing a flat screen, similar in size to larger one that Keyair has posted. Would love to install it at ceiling in driver's area, and have a motorized arm to drop it down to watch, rotate it back when not in use.
Since the roof can obviously hold 2 100lb roof A/C units, I'm thinking that tv wouldn't hurt.....
Anyone know otherwise?
Thanks, Derek

Derek,

I saw a mount on Cooperative Motor Works (The Co-op) like you described I think.

Not sure how he did it, but it's in one of the pictures on his site and he's not too far from you...Orlando area.
