Mortimer Snerd was an Edgar Bergen character, companion to Charlie McCarthy dummy... Doodyville cast included Clarabelle, the Princess noted above, and the famous "Chief Thunderthud" to round out the politically correct Native American sidekicks... Though on live TV in early 1950's in LA, political correctness not common...

Gosh, some of you guys are really bringing back the memories... I was tongue in cheek with my comment that - I've read about back then ...
we had only one channel to watch around here in the mid fifties ... and we were often glued to the evening and weekend favorites ....

Just finished a 3700 mile tour of the country, another great and comfortable trip. Washed and polished with new "Glare" polish from Airstream, it'll knock your eyes out. Inspected everything, one interior rivet and my back gave up to Interstate 20 Louisiana or Dallas Fort Worth, Airstream performed and looks perfect, as did the new Andersen hitch.

What is the new "Glare" polish from Airstream?

Guess it's "Google Time"...

Glare poish. Hi John, at $34.95 a bottle at the Airstream store how could I resist. Must be good stuff, we'll see. A couple customers there had used it and said nothing comes close to repelling water and protecting finish from ultra violet, among other things.

Airstream Service Center posts a price to apply it, not cheap.

The mfg makes some impressive claims but don't they all. I've only had it on a week in dry So Arizona, might get a shower next couple days.

I've been using Glare for 2 years now. I REALLY like it. One application per year and it really does bead up the water for the entire year. It goes on and wipes off very easily as well. One bottle will do my 30'er 1.5 times.... 2 bottles every three years.

We just got our 2013 Airstream Interstate (extended) and couldn't be happier! It's is our very first RV and we have no experience whatsoever. We did great on our first trip....8,000 miles for five weeks. What a beautiful country!

My folks loved their Silver Streak for twenty-seven years. Of course there were things here and there along the way . . . so best of luck to the OP.
