Having been a 66 Tradewind owner before my 345 MH, the MH thread has been great fun with a lot of neet stuff show up. I'm sure there is as much with the TT community. Can't wait to see the results!

Ordered the exorbitantly-priced Polyshim II for doing the vista view windows today. Costs as more in shipping than the item! But, if I can get clear, un-cluttered vista-views instead of those little curly-kews of junk between the two panes, it'll all be worth it! It's an Airstream, right!

Coat hooks, lots and lots of coat hooks - they are even a very close match to the satin factory aluminum hooks ... nifty.

In the past few weeks:

New propane hoses and regulator.

I stripped the vinyl ceiling cover off the front of the camper. This involved buying Goo Gone, dust masks, and other supplies.

New fiber gear for the jack - it stripped.

New connection at the pump for the water - the old polybutelene pipe was fine but the gasket in the connection broke and was leaking air when I was winterizing it, so I figured it would leak water as well, sooner or later. This involved some jury-rigging with sharkbites and Pex and a Polybutelene-to-Pex converter.

New TV antenna crank handle and related parts - the old handle was cracked and the piece that goes on the ceiling came off the vinyl in 4 pieces, so I replaced all of it to get that white look again.

Still to do: Test the water system for leaks. Scrape the rust off the stabilizer jacks. Repack the bearings and check the brakes (the last two might not get done before the first trip if it's too cold yet). I'd also like to scrape and repaint the entire A-frame - the warnings about those metal plates under the lifter bar brackets rusting the A-frame are RIGHT on target.

In the last few weeks we received he following: new weather stripping for doors and windows, Vulkem caulking, tail light cans and lens, and new Atwood water heater.

Matching color paint camper shell was installed today on the new TV. Since it was raining here (unusual event for Phoenix) there was no photo op today.
