On the road. From Allberta to Disneyland

So, I lfinally left. After 4 years of my last Camping trip. I worked and worked in my 68 overlander. It had to be ready for this month long trip.
Sealing windows and seams... checked
Testing the 50 yr old AC for complete days...checked
Fridge in gas and electrical mode...checked
Tires, bearings and brakes....checked
Fresh water system... remove previous owner plastic rubbing patches and replace with cooper lines, pump. Replaced water inlet .... checked
Water heater in gas and electrical .... checked
Stove/oven/heater..... checked
Control panel. Fixed ....checked
Univolt, brand new... checked
Sewer system.... checked
Propane lines.... checked
Marker lights, replaced with LED.... checked
Replace interior light bulbs with LED, checked
Battery, new one...checked
Polish and detailing.... checked

After 2000miles one way trip so far
One cooper fitting leaking water, put a clamp with rubber.... seems ok for now

AC drain clogged, siphoned at 4am, and at 10 am went under to blow air in the drain pipe,, is draining. Not great but it is.

Sewer pipes have dried seals, tried to replace them. Bought a kit. Not very good. Thetford fittings are different. Sort of works for now.

One broken bed at 1 am, took it apart and re screwed it, remove some nails in favor of screws. Fixed nicely.

This is half of the trip. Will see how it continues.

Considering that you have not camped in your Airstream for 4 years, those are very minor problems to have after 2,000 miles of travel. Good job of preparation on your part.
