Just a Hi

Just thought I'd say Hi to all our Airstream Friends. Claudia and I have been busy doing everything else. I'm sure you all know how that goes. Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to all.
Don

silverleeper, Yes, The old refer is in excellent shape except for the heat source and its control units. I've tried several things and have not a unit that I can adapt to make it work. I'm still open to ideas however.

Just for information it was the San Diego Freeway that did in our fridge and trailer hitch on our truck. I advise no one to travel on the San Diego Freeway. The back country gravel roads of Siskiyou County are in better shape.

Fridge Fix?

I believe I've found a fix for my original Dometic fridge. It will need some more adjustment. Right now it's a freezer at 22 degrees.

What's the fix ? Put it outside at night. Haha. It is 25 deg out right now. My fridge is nice and cold and I don't even have it on

Let me know if you are going to toss it out. I would be interested. Old fridge parts these days are as good as gold I think.

I don't think there is an exact fit for a replacement the one closest to that size is too small I think and the next size up is about 8 inches taller.

Dometic

If anyone would like to know what parts I found to repair my 63 Dometic fridge. Send me a PM and I will share the information. It works. I have to be careful or it will freeze everything. The unit I installed was for a larger unit.

Selling Airstream stuff

Howdy all our friends, First off we are not selling the Bambi. We will be selling the 55 Flying Cloud and all the extras we have bought over the last couple of years for the 55 project. Currently we will be putting an ad on for the original Bambi axle and electric brakes. Included is the first replacement axle we bought. That axle only has a years use on it. If you remember I decided to replace the axle with a second new axle because I wanted to put bigger wheels etc. on the Bambi. I'll list the ad on here as well as soon as I get it completed.
