Thank you for the set straight on the paper clip.
I looked at the bathfloorsite and will take the time this week to digest and and search product.
What a great help that is.
How do I get our photo choice on the "Profile" by the way please.
Happy Days,
Paris

Thanks CanoeStream

Not sure if I thanked you now with all the help we are getting thanks to you.
We were members of WBCC Georgia and California at one time. It is good to be back to family again. Just hearing the door shut and lowering the stairs gives me that young old feeling again like our times in the past when we were so young now it seems. Once an Airdale always and Airdale. Hey I think I'll change our profile name to Airdale".
A Airstream owner is a Airstream owner by any other name he's the same.
Later,

Hm, Paristream...eh!

Open your member control panel (User CP) to the upper left. Then under 'Settings and Options' at top left you can edit and avatar or add a profile picture (eg, click my username, open my public profile). See http://www.airforums.com/forums/f138...elp-20347.html.

Hello Paris.

Just saw this thread. Congratulations on your new 1963 Globetrotter!!

We have installed a 6 gallon Water Heater and retained the original vintage cover. The size of the water heater allows us to move the closet wall beside the toilet toward the front just enough to give us a bit of extra elbow room. The toilet setup in the 63 GT is pretty tight.

We are in the process of gutting and restoring our 63 GT as well. Please take a look at our thread http://www.airforums.com/forums/f135...g-30272-6.html (Which reminds me we have been shy in updating, although not much has been happening during our winter )

If you have any questions or if you need any parts that we may have please feel free to PM us

I use quick reply S62,
I went to Inca and that is fantastic! we will replace our old water tank I think and use the new replacement as a bed plateform now being made with metal ball bearing pull out bars instead of wood and increasing width by 14" for both of us to sleep on in the front. Comes just about but not quit accross our door opening. 4"shy so I can if need be one leg it out.
Now to check on your water heater and that is hot and on pursuite.
Paris. Like your outside HWH look in the photo.

I goofed , switched the vent from right to left when I reversed the door. I'll have to get a picture up . I should have taken some of how I did it, but I did not think about it at the time. Hardest part of the job was installing a new gas supply line.

Tankless vs Elec/propane

Ya'll
I think it best to go with a Atwood 6gal. electo/start elec/propane water heater.
adding a Tankless will be unnecessary and there are other issues more important. This week end I will take out the old and get the floor and pipes ready to take the new unit.
Thanks for the help.
Paris

I have not gotten to the gas lines yet but I am under the impression that the lines run outside the undercabin and are visible from underneith the trailer.
Hmmm.

HI Paris, yes the gas lines run outside the belly pan under the trailer. Very easy access. Get some good flaring tools and don't forget to put the nut on the lines before you flare the end ! It really is annoying to have made a really great flare on the pipe only to find that you have left off the nut.

Thanks CJ! gas lines.
I swear I am going to have a backhoe did a ditch in the yard so I can access the undercarriage!
Not really, but I am going to do that or line up some cinder blocks and ride up it for easier access. "bellybean"
We think we are going to name our new baby the "Airbean" Has anyone got that name yet?

Ladybug, 10/4 and copy that. Our unites look so much alike inside except for your lady bugs. We are going to strip the inside to paintable status. We are thinking of using lamanent flooring after we choose a paint color. From that point we will install the water heater, Tub, Holding tank and refrig..
I will stay with you if you will us...
Paris and Dolly

Paris,

I vote against the use of cinder blocks. They are unsafe, since they tend to crumble and break. Bad news if it happens while you're under the trailer. Better to find something else, like perhaps wood, or ramps.

Ramp blocks

It hasn't come to that yet and your right. Tomorrow out comes the old water heater and damaged bath floor.
I post some after progress.
Later,
Paris
