Hi All; First post here, brand new (old) airstreamer.....
I just pulled home my first Airstream, 1989 Excella. It was "for sale" off the road in a farmers lot, fair sized berm. When it was placed in this position, the parking/backing attempt damaged (by causing it to come slightly loose and drop down after being used as an earth moving tool) the following item:
A dark grey rounded thing at the bottom left rear side of the trailer, about 18" to 24" long, about 6" high perhaps, feels like molded plastic, very light, has a reflector mounted on it, and fits under the side panel and against the frame channel right at the rear of the trailer before the bumper. Seems to have a couple very small holes at the top of it, which would be out of sight when in position.
I don't know if this thing is the "banana" or not, but it's sure a pita! Anyway, gravity will not hold it in place, keeps slipping down. It does not fall off, just flops down a bit, and obviously would not keep dirt, water, or small mammals out.
My question is: how the heck do I repair this? I've searched the site, although I'm not expert at searching it, and don't find anything about how to deal with it. I wasn't there when the seller did what ever he did to it, so I missed out on how it was disassembled.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
