My 26" TV on my 2016 Flying Cloud has RCA cables that were added by Airstream, allowing for sound thru the Airstream speakers. Did you modify your new 32" TV so that it will play thru the Airstream speakers?

Replaced Thetford with Valterra. Close under there so used a hacksaw and manually sawed the old off. Since the Valterra is longer than the old Thetford I am nearly back to the original length.

The Thetford was worn out. The tabs on the fitting worn on back side so when securing the dump hose there was not enough gasket compression.

Sawing was slow.. May have worked better with a wire saw. Those are ones for camping saw.

File the outside so you have straight sides of the dump pipe. Then taper the end to assist alignment.. But should be a snug fit because you should be able to fully seat before application of glue.

I did not, but it's pretty easy to do. What has to be done is remove the back of the 26" and disconnect the wires AS put in which attach to the RCA cables and then do the reverse on the 32".

I did what you asked on another AS and it's not hard, may yet do it, but might also put in a sound bar and wireless sub.

Sound Bar

I'm seriously considering the Yamaha YAS-105 sound bar due to the slim form factor and it will fix perfectly under the Samsung 40 inch 4K television that I just installed. Don't really need to have the sound from the front TV in the bedroom, since theres a TV back there.

The Vitrifrigo DP150i and DP2600 refrigerators arrived at the installer's location today. The DP2600 had a damaged door trim that the trucking company will get to pay for. The two Dometic/SMEV CU434 stoves will arrive at the installer's location by Thursday. The installer will have adequate time to inspect and make sure things are all in order before I get there with the first trailer in early May. While waiting for me to get there, he will be replacing both refrigerator's two stock door panels with magnetic stainless steel panels. He will use another piece of that same stainless steel to make a side splash to the right side of the stove.

AM Solar System

Just received a complete system from AM Solar today, 2@ 100 watt panels, IPN Pro remote, cabling, on/off switch, 30 Amp breaker, and BlueSky 2512iX charge controller and misc stuff. Now the really fun begins. I'm going to go slow and deliberate to make sure it's a quality install. Plan on photographing the entire process.

Why the foreign refrigerators? Who can service them?

The Vitrifrigo line is a 12/24 volt, compressor based unit originally for the marine industry but are also being used in the RV marketplace. If you have solar and a sufficient battery bank, these units are great and don't require level to operate. They are very efficient (2 amps for the smaller unit & just over 4 amps for the large 2600: a three way Dometic draws 9+ amps per hour on 12v), quite cold, recover more quickly whenever the door is opened and don't suffer in high ambient temperatures. Plus, they don't require venting.

New to the Airstream world. We bought a 71 Sovereign at the start of winter and let it hibernate until now before we start renovations. First post to the forum today. Just bought a Nature's Head toilet. Now that the wife is happy I can start shopping for the billion other parts we'll no doubt be needing.
