Oh Mr Toad.....We looked at the new ones. I particularly liked the 27ft International Serenity. But we opted for this 1984 specifically because my wife have always wanted to work on something classic like this. It has the dings and dents of a long and fruitful life. It has personality built in by 2 previous owners, and every little idiosyncrasy makes me wonder, where it was and just what went on to cause the mod or repair.. I cherish the old craftsmanship and love the fact that 27 years after the old boy was built, it is still on the road shouting "I am Airstream, Watch me roll!"
PS: Our unit is hosting a Vintage rally in Glen Rose TX next month. Pleased owners of new Airstreams are also invited. Come on by, any reason is a good reason to go Streamin...

The breaker panel is for your 110V power. Unfortunately, the fuse panel for your 12v is behind the sofa. Bad news that, since it is an item that should be easily accessible both for trouble-shooting and replacing fuses. Can the sofa be modified to gain access? You need to do something about it.

[QUOTE=casacasa3805;977627]Whew,
Had to take the morning and go get new tires for the old guy. That is done and now back to the electrical...
WSmithWSmiththe fusebox is to remove the recliner. This will not be easy... See another pic.
MD Silverado, your post forced me to go back and look again at the breaker box in the light of day. No double pole breaker, my bad, Sorry folks.See pic. two 20 amp breakers on top.
left to right on the bottom. A 30amp labeled "main", then a 20amp labeled "gen circuits", then a 15amp with red test button, labeled "lights".

Heading out to see if I can figure some of this out. Sure do apprefuseboxhe continuing info! And I still think electricity is a little bit magic.[/Silverado

From looking at the interior photo. I think they removed the batteries and univolt to make room for the sofa. All of the DC wiring should still be there along with the fuses. Looking at your trailer photo this modification was made by a 35 year WBCC member.
When you open the small door there should be abs type boxes inside. The key for that box is a Hurd H it has a octigon head. If you need that year key description card let me know.

goodness gracious you all got me in trouble... I managed to yank that sofa around and reveal the fuses just about the time my wife came out to show me the new reservations we have at state parks "This Week". Needless to say I will have just enough time to do a quick check of the voltage as explained by WSmith and will put it back together and go.... Campin is more fun than fixin anyway..

Where did they put the inverter? Hope its not out in the tongue box unless the added some weather proofing. I am guessing it no longer has the univolt charger in use.

FYI there is usually an area about 8" wide behind the sofa.
Also there is a post on this forum that tells how to mix up a concoction that will take the yellow out of the end caps and other yellow plastics in the trailer.
