fuse panel in while I was at it. I riveted the new intellipower to the wall about where your water pump is. My water pump is on the floor in the same area and I may relocate it a foot or two away from all the electrical stuff while I'm at it. Going to drop the pan and black tank this weekend or next and have all kinds of fun fixing it up and reinstalling it. I still say the 64 GT is about the sweetest Airstream of all time. My systolic drops 30 points when I step into it for some reason. It rocks.
OH man, I hear ya! We just spent 3 nights in ours, with our Jack Russell, and I just love it. My other half even loves it.
I'm moving in the direction of taking out univolt/replacing with Intellipower, and studying the wiring. After work today, I was drawing up the wiring from the photographs, always good to understand something by drawing it! I figure I can understand what goes where and know better when to ask for help. I also want to integrate a 150 watt solar panel to run the fridge and electrical.
I was thinking about the location of the Intellipower, how to mount it more, um, securely than the Univolt is now.
Good luck with the black tank- I just installed a Nature's Head composting toilet, so our black tank will become a gray tank. Honestly, after dealing with the black tank tube, the composting toilet is hugely less gross. Post pics!
