My wife and I are proud owners of a 85 excella 31'. Been using the forum for the past couple of months which has been a big help in our new quest. We will actually be living in her full time and try our luck in Key West. Some of our projects in mind: new counter top and fixtures, replacing carpet/ flooring, converting twin beds to either queen or full, just to name a few and oh make her shine (wanta see the water reflect off her side). If anyone heads down south check out Bluewater RV and say hi. Oh, anyone replaced their old LP tanks and notice the new tanks are smaller? Trying to work with the shorter tank with the original aluminum cover. Thought about Using a full threaded rod with 2 wing nuts (1 to hold the tanks and the other for the cover). Looking for any input. Thanks M&Y

Greetings, Mklmrck, and welcome to the forums! I'm sure you'll find lots of information here about your Airstream, both general and specific.

Assuming your new cylinders are steel and 30-pound, you'll find that they're shorter than the corresponding aluminum cylinders, but also somewhat "fatter." Oh, and they're a lot heavier, too! If you still have the original aluminum cylinders, they can generally be requalified and placed back in service if they're otherwise in decent shape and have the required OPD valves.

Again, welcome to the forums!


Lynn
