Thanks to 92landyacht's posting on removing and resealing the coach windows, have purchased some butyl tape.

DW has agreed to help me remove and reseal the windows over the next two weekends. Gotta love my farm girl!

One tool you may want to consider buying, if you don't already have one, is a VERY long philips head screw driver. I found that the screws at the top of thw windows near the cabinets are very hard to get to otherwise. The one I bought is about 20" long and I purchased it at the Home Depot.
It's not very expensive but makes the job a lot easier.

Here's a link to it:

92landyacht,

Thank you, for the loooooooong screwdriver tip

I think I have an old one from the 70's buried in the bottom of my tool bin!

What cleaner do you use to remove the dark patches on the roof?


Looks pretty bad and was hoping you found the remedy...

After a summer as a camp host, parked under the trees in a State Park I used "Barkeeper's Friend Powder Cleanser" with a 3M green scrubby and a stiff scrub brush. Rinse well to keep streaks off the side of the coach and if you have bony knees like me, get some knee pads.

BarnacleBill,

Thank you, for the Barkeeper's Friend" tip. Asked the DW and she some under the sink. It will be a good project in the next 3-4 weekends.

When I purchased Katy she had a banged-up rear wheel simulator:

Didn't want to purchase a set of matching wheel simulators ($$$$), so I impatiently searched online for the last 10 months...
Finally found a single wheel cover online! Waited anxiously until it arrived Friday.

Installed today, the included kit was fairly simple...

Remove two fake lug nuts
Remove wheel cover
Use 1 1/16 socket to remove old lug extenders
Use Allen wrench from installation kit to screw on the new lug extenders
Install wheel cover
Tighten fake lug nuts with jncluded wrench

Carefully remove the old Airstream Emblem from the old wheel cover
Glue the removed emblem to the new wheel cover:
