I have found a shop that is willing to do the work and they are contacting Airstream to make the arrangements. I am having them perform the safety recalls even though I am sure I could easily do it myself for the purposes of making sure that down the road if I sell the trailer, I won't be responsible if there is a failure of the repaired part.
I totally understand. I still think that the propane tray should be bolted down with stainless bolts, locked nuts, and not metal screws. The lock idea is great also.
Regarding the liabilities, I am in a different position as my AS is going my son, when I depart. I am a bit older and not that healthy!
I am hoping it will stay in the family for a long time.
