Ok - I will try this again. How far should the U (C) channel go back towards the opening for the water heater. It was back to the part of teh larger opening for the heater but it looked like someone had taken a drill and drilled a row of holes in the U channel and broke it off. I am in the procewss of replacing that part of the U channel and would like to do it right. The last picture was of the U channel that the sheetmetal shop lost and you can see how far it went. I think it was cut off and needs to be longer. The other side only has a gap of about 4 inches. What do you folks think.

You don't need any C-channel at the water heater opening. Mine was flattened with a hammer by the factory in 1964. If you are missing part of the curved C-channel that is not in the WH opening you will need to contact Airstream for some new material. If the C-channel is not riveted to the skin AND bolted or screwed to the floor, it's not really doing anything.

Your WH cutout looks strange. Mine's just a rectangle.

Best to you,
Rich the Viking

Rear End Sag

Okay, just for the record I am in the process of cleaning up the rear end of my 1971 Soveriegn and noticed that the previous owner had filled in approx. 3/4" of silicone just above the frame to the bottom of the body. I removed this silicone and found a void. I then gently jacked up the frame and it appeared to go back into place and then drop afterIi let the jack down. The bottom of the frame has what appears to be a support brace that runs approx. 3' from the back toward the front.

The wood flooring looking from bottom appears to be in good shape. The inside is in mint condition and do not want to have to tear it out to fix. I have heard that this is sometimes caused by worn out axles, they have been ordered and willbe delivered tomorrow.

I have taken pics and tried to attach to this, however I was unsucessful.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Photo problems are usually centred around size. Too big = no go

Have a look at these tips for posting images. You'll have them up in no time.

Don't be tempted to make them too small, I can't find my magnifying glass lately.

Photo option?

Andy,

Any way you could provide a couple of photos of what this repair looks like?

Check out post 3 14 above.

If you do it correctly, a photo will show absolutely nothing, since nothing has been changed that can be seen.
