I finished up last week on a multi-project on my AS.

1) I retrofitted it with an automatic thermostat which made a huge difference on AC operation. An added benefit was a decrease in sound level. I did not expect the latter but it is appreciated and, achieved by a lower fan speed during cycling. I can actually hear the compressor faintly while running versus only fan noise.

2) I scraped off the rub rail sealant and did the large bead "weld-look" tempro caulk. I have to give kudos to Vinnie at NorthBay Airstream in CA for his advice on this. Even though I could not get out there, he was nice enough to answer my questions and offer advice. The caulk is quite noticeable but much better sealed than just a plain no-seal rub rail. I would rather have the caulk than a rotted floor. Thank goodness mine had a good seal on the rear bumper area. I checked that too.

3) I completed the roof maintenance on sealing the end seams at the cap-to-roof points and linear line. I used Zika Multi-seal a UV teflon-like tape with sika sealant underneath. Very smooth, very neat and looks better than blobs of exposed caulk. It is made for metal too.

Nice rig! I found a cab-high cap makes most any truck look longer for some reason.

I bought a hitch lock, 2 books about AS from Amazon and now researching wheel protectors.

Also, I want to tint the windows...need to research that as well. I'll never get to bed..

But when you do get to sleep you will have pleasant dreams!

BTW, what are wheel protectors?

No Problem. Learning by asking has proved to be very beneficial for me. That way I only have to be ignorant once (hopefully)!
