we had 2 A.S. trailers over the years.

and a neighbor in the 80's with a ? I think a A.S. 310-M.H. Diesel from the factory.

One of you Probably has it, the diesel unit now. ?

we did make some nice trips together, Cedar Point C.G. on Erie.
Mammoth cave and Nashville.
Rally's at Jackson Center. Great times For All
But he was always full of story's concerning rally's and how he was treated.

how to reset the Overheat breaker, water heater

this was the issue. I had 120 at the switch

120 going into switch box on Heater unit.

so reading the directions on the heater cover, red lettering.

It explained how to re set the overheat, breaker.

I used an ink pin that was handy

wallllaaaaa, Lots of HOT water via 120 AC for the 1st time since we have owned this coach. Propane was the method before. and when electric is included in the camp site fee. It will be nice to limit the use of propane for us to purchase.

replaced all 4 Head Light 3 way conectors also

From summit racing

I used some D. grease to coat the Head Light prongs also.

I have also covered all of the bare floor areas with 1 inch insulation-sound proof matting. the same that we used when we re did the Dog House project 2 years ago.

Led

Looking good John.
I understand now why you have no corn planted yet!

I tried the LED's in one Slimline that the ballast went on, but I was not that impressed so have ordered a new ballast. When I want light, I want lots of light, and the LED'S just did not do it for me for the kitchen area. Great for other areas though. We have lots of batteries on the Clipper so the bit of light usage is not the problem.

Classic

John:
If you make that thing look any nicer the factory is going to come and take it away from you.
They will want it to use for a sample to put them back in production!
