We found her! Lucy3 aka L3

We're excited because we have searched high and low! And she was hiding in plain sight. So, last week, we bought her to our house...our "new-to-us" Airstream...a 34' 1995 Excella which was a real find! After using her only minimally, the PO's parked her in their barn, and they visited her on-site. Once weather permits, she'll need new shoes, LP tanks re-certified and filled before our first trip. We're looking forward to our travels.

Thank you for the cheers! Every day it's been above freezing, my husband has been outside "kahfutzing" and tweaking! That's part of the fun of AS ownership we think; we feel so fortunate.

I hope L3 gives you as much pleasure as you have had with 1 and 2. Keep her rolling. The only problem with a 34' is I can't invite you to stay at my home as one bend in the driveway is just too difficult to negotiate with anything that long. But, within a mile to four I can put you up at a nice National Forest campground.

BTW, that invitation is good for any forum member. Hookups included, riverfront site, under tall pines and huge cedars. Just best if you are 25' or less in length.

1995 Excella 1000 - L3

@Alumaholic: More pictures will be coming soon...thanks always for the "atta-boys/girls."

@BAB: The support and camaraderie generated by this website is indispensable and greatly appreciated.

@idroba: What a generous offer! We will absolutely keep your offer in mind! Are doggies welcomed? We share our world with two rescued female mini-Dachsunds, who by many estimations, won the lottery once they joined our family.

Hope to meet you all someday down the road....=)

Kahfutzing is some of what I love best in life! Congratulations on the new palace, may she bring you much joy.

Yep, yep, doggies are welcome too. We might even be able to get L3 in the drive, backing it down from one end (circular driveway).

1995 Excella 1000 - L3 - refrigerator issue

With the remaining propane in one of the tanks, Dave tested the stove and furnace; they worked well. However, we have our first curve ball in our short two-week ownership: Lucy's Dometic refrigerator a Model RM 3807, the refrigerator "gurgles," and does not become cold after being plugged in an hour. Currently, my husband is searching the Dometic manual for a troubleshooting list. Realizing it is parked outside, it's night time, and 24 degrees adds to the anxiety. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. Is it normal for a refrigerator to "gurgle?"

With all those invites; why not join a bunch of Air Streamers in Pecatonica the second week end in May? We would all like to see Lucy (L3). Follow us on the forum.

Mike, if L3 is completely up and running by then, we may just do that, but it seems we have a couple of "issues" to tackle first. We'll let you know before we do. Thank you all for the warm welcomes! =)

Is your trailer level while your trying the fridge?
Some RV fridges take 3-4 hours to start to get cold.

Also the electric heating element sometimes has trouble heating enough to cool in subfreezing temps. That sounds weird doesn't it?
