I do have the info that came with the original Thermix in one of my trailers. It was only a small card with lighting instructions and little else.
Will see if I can find it.
They cost about $80 back in the early 70's
I do hope they're still making them somewhere, under a different name perhaps? I heard the company that made them in Canada went out of business. Guess the product they made was too good and never broke down, or there wasn't enough demand or they sold them too cheaply?
$80 BUCKS in the 70's! Wow! Those were the good old days, weren't they? They probably would run around $250 - 300 now!
Mine is still working. So is my Armstrong AC.
I find them useful for those in between seasons on chilly nights. Mine is good all the way down into the 20's if there's no wind. Anyway, would appreciate information on how to go about getting one, either new or nearly new salvage would do if the heater still has a warranty that it works.
I don't want anything new in my Airstream. The new ones aren't as good, and I want to retain much of the original equipment in this vintage trailer as much as is possible.
