Hi Burt,

Welcome! I have no answers to your questions, but am confident that you'll receive plenty before the day is out.

The Airstream Forums is the most impressively informative interest group I've ever run into. Nice people too.

Cheers,
jon

Thumbs up

Hi Burt, Welcome to The Forums. Congradulations on your new travel trailer. I hope that you enjoy the project, and enjoy using it even more.

My TV antenna has one of those old 2 hole jacks. It's on the underside of the upper kitchen cabinet. Presumably that's where most people would have placed the TV before wall hung plasma TVs

Best of luck, write again!

Steve

layout

What is the Layout of the 22'? I had a 1975 22' Argosy Center L. I was a nice layout, and nice towing with 22' double axles. Pictures?

Rear door - rarity

That rear door is a keeper, not many around.

If you are still having problems lighting your fridge, you can safely light it manually, by switching the gas valve to "on", pushing up the gas valve on the back of the fridge, and lighting the pilot through the little hole accessed by a sliding cover on the right side (as you view it from outside the coach) where the burner is. After a minute or so, you can release the valve, and the pilot should stay lit.

Thanks for the info.I did what you suggested and the gas side is also working.I think the problem is with the spark aresster,it does't spark anymore.Within about 2 hours the freezer was reading 0 and the box 35 degrees.Thats amazing for a thirty year old refridge.
Thanks again,
Burt
