Hello all. I'm a new member. I have a 71 Land yacht Globe Trotter I purchased a few weeks ago. It will need some work. I'm not sure where to start at this point. I have towed it from the sellers place to a place 2 hours away and then back. It pulls like a dream! The driver side tail, break and turn lights did not work at all. It did not come with a battery and I have not yet located where it is supposed to go, but have not had a lot of time to look for it, yet.

I'm so glad the threads are broke down by categories. This if very helpful. I will be looking through them for tips very soon.

I guess the first thread I will look for is a checklist of items to checkout when first starting on a vintage Airstream.

I'm so excited to own an Airstream and I look forward to reading your advise and chatting with you all!

See ya in the chat threads!

I'm betting the umbilical (cord between truck and trailer) is not wired correctly. A quick google search will point you to the correct wire diagram.

Congratulations and welcome!

Welcome Linda and congrats on the Globie. Post some photos when you can so we can ooh and ahh.
