Smile Smart Plug

I ordered a smart plug and power cord to replace the plastic OEM setup. Can't wait to get it on.

Those Red Rock Outdoor Gear trays remind me of the metal food trays in the enlisted mess hall on the Destroyer (DD849) I ate off of several times backing the late 60s.

Good choice. I must of pulled out at least a pound of rock hard potting compound when swapping mine out. A sharp knife and needle nose pliers did the trick. Little tricky reattaching the wires. They were short with very little free play. Results, no more warm wires or burnt contacts.

Thx, Chief. With the newer AS I'm hopeful I'll get-er-done without too many bad words.

So not really a purchase from today, but we have moved into a new house, with a nice sized RV garage for Eva We moved in on 12/18 and now a month later it feels like we are actually winning the battle of the boxes and itching for a trip out!!

Was stationed aboard the USS Manley DD940 during the 70's.

Thanks! Took us 2 years to find a place in Bend with an RV garage in the right location It really is an amazing space, I will start another thread about it so I don't clog this one up... I will post some more pics too.

I love the smart plug. I do not think the newer Airstreams have all of the issues getting the old plug out like AWCHIEF describes. Ours is a 2015 and there was nothing but insulation around ours. Took be about 10 minutes for each plug.

It is an excellant product. I bought mine from Airstream at the International Rally in West Virginia this past year.

Wife found a boatload of metal surplus mess trays at a garage sale -- about 20 for $15 as I recall. Very cool -- we sorted out 4 or 5 stamped during WWII years to use. I think the rest are around, but we just moved so things are a bit disorganized right now.
