Red face Help with new Overlander

Hey everyone, I am a total NEWBIE with a new (for me) Airstream Overlander. I think it's from the early 70's. It's been fully restored. The electrics and water system works, and the gas is supposed to work as well. The problem is that I have no idea where the pilot light is or what gas valves should be turned to. The heater says 'everflow'. Any help would be hugely hugely appreciated.

Overlandedly,
-T

There are several who could help with your questions, but since there can be significant diferences over even a two or three year period, some of the following information would be helpful:
  • The VIN number which will identify the coach's series as well as model year - - both of which can have a great impact on the answers to questions about appliances, options, and accessories. Depending upon year, the VIN should be on a plaque attached to the coach ahead of the main entrance door - - or a plaque mounted behind the LP bottles on the front of the coach.
  • The make and model of the appliance about which you are inquring - - this information is placed in a variety of places, but is nearly always accessible without removing components of the appliance. This can be particularly important if the appliance is not the ones that came in the coach when it was factory new.
    • If your coach didn't come with a copy of its owners' manual, you can purchase a repring of the manual at this link.
    • If you find that you need a factory service manual for your coach, theses, too, are available from this link.
Good luck with your Overlander!

Kevin
