I am also a new owner of a 74 Excella 31Ft. Does anyone know how to turn the fluorescent lights, that are located above the curtains, on?

Thanks Spartan!
Well, we finally got to spend the weekend in her, just cleaning and exploring. Sad to say, the safe is BARE Turns out it wasn't locked after all. We have the rear bath and mid twins. I'm thinking we could really use new mattresses. Will regular twins fit in here?
We also have the original Armstrong air conditioner, but it doesnt' work. I read in this forum that they are worth repairing, if possible, so we have a professional coming out tomorrow to look at it. With any luck, it might even be something minor

I saw your post and looked over my window and found the old fluorescent light bulb.....I did not even know it was there, so if anyone knows how they turn on, I would like to know myself. Just from bumbling around over there it seems the bulb is going to be hard to replace, not much space to get it out. I would imagine it is burned out....but again I really don't know. Depends if it even got used.

I did not know about a safe.....I haven't felt like moving the couch to look.....I am sure there won't be anything in it. When I first got my AS, I found a old antique gun case under the bed. It took me forever to get it out, I thought I had found the mother load (so to speak). Well, after all that trouble getting it out [it was wedged under bed] it was empty.

I'll jump in here with the Excella thread. We have a '78 rear bath twin. Our secret safe is located under the curbside cabinet in the "toe kick" area next to the fridge. It works like a small bank safety deposit box with two keys. Only we have both keys...unlike at the bank!

Our central vacuum is gone but was located in the rear storage compartment behind and below the sink.

Davidz71,
I know that if my work schedule permits we will be there hopefully for several days if not then maybe just a few hours the fair grounds are about 45 minutes from our house. Look forward to it and I am doing everything possible to spend the night at the fair grounds surrounded by other AS HOW COOL!!!!!

Tabbykat,
How did the AC appointment go?? We have the original Armstrong our selves and it stopped during our maiden voyage in central Florida ( can you say HOT) we were lucky it was just the thermostat that was bad replaced that and it worked great. Hope you can keep the Armstrong!
