A while back you posted a question about putting in a large inverter. I found this chart recently that shows the amount of battery it would use to run various size devices. I thought it might help.

Richard, this is a great chart and very useful. Thanks for posting this!

I didn't get too much done on the trailer this weekend. I thought I was going to, but with guests here from out of town and some other obligations I wound up only getting the front and rear interior end caps off, removed all of the rest of the insulation from those areas and some other bits, and I also ran one circuit; the one for the refrigerator.

I also realized that I won't be able to put the WFCO power center/charger/converter where I wanted to - under the fridge - because the wheel well takes up that space. So it looks like I'm going to put it in the front, to the curb-side, up by the fresh water tank.

More Electrical Work

After spending part of the afternoon with a lot of the cool Airstream people here in Phoenix at DMaiden's house (great BBQ, btw, thanks!) I decided to go home and make use of the last hour or so of daylight and get some more work done on the electrical system.

I finally pulled out the rest of the old wiring after marking the places where I wanted to add outlets, modify lines to 12v instead of 110v, etc. I made use of some of the original markings (red ink in the photos) and added some of my own for new stuff (black ink in the photos). So after getting the old wiring pulled out, I managed to put the 110V wire in place for the curbside of the trailer. There are two circuits on that side; lights/outlets and one for the refrigerator. I haven't started on the 12v wiring yet, but that should be easier than pulling Romex through. Maybe I can get to that next weekend.

The trailer looks SO much cleaner and nicer with the old wiring out. And, it looks safer with the new wiring in. I haven't wired in the outlets or junction boxes yet, just running the lines for fit right now.

Considering the price of copper, I think I'm going to find a place to recycle the old wire that I've pulled out. Oh, and for anyone with a 1958 26' trailer, if you want to see what all of the wire looks like in your walls, I've included a picture of that as well

As always, even more pictures are available at: http://picasaweb.google.com/andrew.k...amCruiserPart2

We did have a cool time and the BBQ was great. Thanks Dave for hosting this. Next time we pick a new place, possibly right here. Sounds like we insired Andrew to make use of the weather and get some wiring done. Great to see more progress on the dual door Airstream.

All are welcome for the BBQ. BTW Jerry called and left a message, he was running behind because of the 55mph speed limit in CA, but wished everyone the best. It was really great to meet you all and am looking forward to the Feb Rally of the Arizona New Mexico Colorado Utah Four Corners Unit (read the other post a minute ago).

In the meantime, Happy Holidays everyone.

WHAT HAPPENED? The classifieds say it sold... what happened there? Can you send negative karma to someone? If you sold that trailer I will find you and put you over my knee young man... I just spent many hours reading that thread and it ended like that? I feel cheap and used.

I met Andrew (ankornuta) last year around this time, seemed like a really nice guy. I am trying to remember what happened.

IIRC, after he had just moved from Phoenix to Scottsdale and found out his work was going to take him to San Francisco and he would not be able to have the trailer where he was going to live. Several of us emailed him about storing the trailer somewhere for a while, but he decided to sell it instead. I have not heard from him in about a year now, but if I can find his email address I will drop him a line. It is interesting that he now shows his location as New York. I wonder who bought the trailer. He had put a lot of work into it, but it still needed a lot more.

I inquired about it and he said a guy from Wyoming bought it. It is sad!

The restore will continue

Perhaps not so bad. Andy had to move to New York and as such had no chance of continuing his restoration. My brother lives in Tucson and was nice enough to bring the trailer to me in Wy. The trailer has backtracked a bit. Andy did a great job but he was obviously limitted in his space and help. As such the trailer is once agaain frame off. I have been diligently working/welding on the frame (adding reinforcement and constructing tank cavities). New tandem Dexter axles with electrohydraulic brakes and new wheels have been installed (they look great!) There is still literally a ton of work to go!! All this is a first time for me but I have learned much and I am having fun (though it is more work than one can ever anticipate ). Winter has set in here and the work for now is at a standstill. Don't feel cheated. This 59 double door will see the road again in time. I plan on initiating a new thread in the spring with updates of my work so far and progress as the work proceeds. I am new to the forums but have reviewed many threads and learned a tremendous amount. What a tremendous resource this iis !!!. Thanks to Uwe, Carlos Ferguson and Tim Shepard who have guided me through some steps thus far via email. We also have a 64 overlander which is in nice original condition that we use for camping with our 2 girls ( age 4 & 5 ) currently. Ed

Ed,

This is great news. Please join the WBCCI and attend the 2008 International Rally in Bozeman. We should park together, your 1958 two door and my 1954 two door. Mine won't be finished, but past the aluminum tent stage.

Bill

Thumbs up

Bill, We will be going to the Int in Bozeman. We will probably be using the 64 overlander as I am sure the 58 will at best be an aluminum tent at that point. I still have to por 15 the frame, add insulation and the belly pan etc ,etc. be fore the shell is reattached. At any rate we plan on attending and would love to touch bases with you there. Ed
