Thanks Rivet, I liked the concept but the "logs" just didn't do it. I had considered what you suggested but wanted something rustic and to cook with. I got it from "A" and returned . Might try another style. I chose the Fire in a Can due to popularity.

Installed our new Zarcor Solutions' CloZures shutter on the porthole window in the bedroom of our 27' FC fb. Already have two in the galley portholes. Love them for the esthetics and privacy.

Returned from factory with our warranty work completed and a few additions.

They manufactured an over head locker above the dinette, this is eight inches longer than the one above the galley.

Then had our wardrobe changed into a pantry by having shelves installed at different heights to fit various kitchen tools.

Also had one extra tube installed next to existing one so I could move extra sewer hose out of bumper storage.

All turned out great. Plus we spent a week in the terraport and did some sightseeing when we could.

These shutters are from the marine industry. We saw these being used in yachts. It's nice to have privacy without having to totally block the view when using the OceanAirs. We have twin beds and wife's side is next to porthole. She likes the privacy while lounging in bed, but still wants to have the upper window open and the OceanAir up. In the galley, we sometimes close just the bottom for privacy but we can still see outside. From the outside, the shutters fill the entire frame so you have total privacy with no gaps that the shades have. They do a good job blocking temperature transfer. Installed with included Velcro dots so you can remove them for cleaning. There's a plastic "button" in the middle that is used to slide back and forth. Total custom look. We really enjoy the investment.

Just installed a Vitrifrigo DP 2600 iac refrigerator and a Husky 5000# jack.
The refrigerator draws less than 1 amp. Amazing

is it possible to extend the rod for the scissor jack under the trailer? on our 2017 22FB, the end that you turn is 2 feet from the edge of the trailer. on some new 2018 models, I see that the jack point is right at the edge of the trailer side. thus no need to bend over and peek under the trailer to see where to poke the tool end. can it be retrofitted? if not what is the make model for the replacement scissor jack?

Those shutters look quite nifty! We spent a lot of money for shades we are not really thrilled with. Used for 5 years now but not worn out yet!
Thinking, thinking...

Yes they are. Packaged very well. They're delivered USPS priority, and we got them in 3 days to California. Didn't have to do any recommended trimming to install. We love them.

YES.... I did it myself. Welded extensions onto the existing shafts.

My Sport has the BAL brand which had the "slotted" type of fitting on the end. I hated it, so used ordinary 1/2" bolts, 8 inches long, and butt-welded them onto the ends of the shafts. Now I use the same sort of 3/4" socket everyone else uses in a rechargeable drill to raise/lower my stab jacks. Cost: $4 and a couple of beers. (I used a section of 1" angle-iron and a C-clamp to align the two for the butt-weld by laying the bolt and screwjack-end in the angle and holding them in position with the clamp. Tack-welded them together, then removed the jig and finished the job. Works great.)

Maiden voyage...Long trip

What I gave my Airstream was its first Maiden voyage after owning for 4 years. It got a quick weekend 1 year ago, but was put to a 1000 mile test. Finally got it out and about. It ended up being a Nursery for our Grand baby. We had both of airstreams to view te eclipse


having uploading pics. try later
