Knighted with an aluminum sword!

We used to call duct tape -- rock n' roll tape when I was in the music biz. It was used on everything. I leave the rest to your imaginations.

On a serious note-- I bought two small screw down clips from HDepot, and got extra duty velcro to run thru and hold down the TV set is works great

Norb, our very first trip with our Airstream was similar in some ways. Our A/S has an apartment type fridge that works on 120 VAC only. Hence no door latches. The campground, a US Corp of Engineers reservoir we camped at had no electric or water. We arrived with an empty fridge, with warm food all over the floor. Nothing worse than arriving at a campground with warm beer.

My father-in-law lent us his 2 cycle, 500 watt generator. It wouldn't run a damn thing, not even the convertor.

When we left the campground, we stopped at the dump station to empty the black tank. Guess which hose clamp was loose?

All in all it was a great trip, we hit another campground that weekend with full hookups. A trip to remember.
