[QUOTE=jpons;1809876]I just got this 22" High Definition AC/DC TV to replace the one that came with my 20 footer. I am not sure why Airstream would install an AC only TV.

Here is the Amazon link

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

We very rarely watch TV, but with Murphys law in full effect, every time was have wanted to watch something we did not have AC power. Just a few days ago I found this model for $135 on Amazon and installed it today and works perfectly. We could have gone with a larger model as I am sure that at least the 24 inch and maybe the 32 inch would fit. But for the occasional times we use it the 22" is fine.

As a side bonus, this unit only weighs in at 4.5 lbs vs. the 11 lbs of the original Samsung. 6.5 lbs is not much but I bet the strain on the mounting arm is greatly diminished. The only issue I had mounting this is that I needed to use shorter screws to

jpons, thanks...timing is everything as they say. I've started some research on another TV. First thought was a 2nd tv for the BR...then to moving the OEM to the bedroom. This AC/DC mode is a great value and offers ultimate flexibility.

What did you get for your Trailer today?

After completing my first 2000 mile trip with the Airstream Arvika front bike rack installed I was not comfortable with the amount of road flex. Ordered, received and installed the Telescoping support arm from Racksforcars.com. First impression is that it will certainly be an improvement. The rack now feels very solid with no undesirable flexing. Road test shortly. Another benefit will be that I can now safely carry my inflatable Advanced Elements kayak on the rack. Freeing up some valuable space in the Jeep . Click image for larger version

Hmm, mine came with that front support. But mine is a 3 place rack.

Mine is a 2 bike rack using only one of the mounts. The flex was probably not a real issue but it was just annoying watching the rack and bike bounce around. I think the most tangible benefit will being able to now carry the kayak on the rack without worrying about it overloading. It has become so easy justifying spending money on the trailer.

I've thought about carrying the generators on there. Without bikes, of course

I like it, Sounds like a good idea. They make a cargo rack attachment to use in place of the upper bike rack section.

I think just a thin piece of Luan on the bike tracks would do it. And a couple motorcycle straps.

Too simple, this is Airforums where everything is over engineered, critiqued and beat to death. (Personally I think that sounds like a great idea)

A spare circuit board for fridge. It couldn't decide between gas or AC so did neither. Luckily had a buddy handy (former Electricians Mate 1st on nuclear subs) who knew which relay to whack, but he said if it failed once it will do so again, so a spare board seemed prudent.

What did you get for your Trailer today?

That's why he was a First Class...we all know where, and just how hard, to whack a stubborn bit of Navy gear. I was a Data Systems PO1--knowing just where and how hard to put the steel-toed boot to the silly computer to get it to go was a fine art.

I think that's where the term 'booting the computer' really came from😀😀😀...at least not the official version.
