One of these days I will make it to the North Georgia Mountains. I will e-mail you and let you know what days I am heading up to Illinois. I would not be a problem. I will call the company before I e-mail you to make sure they are still doing it. They did mine last year.

Matt stopped in at the car wash on Friday. We looked for the antenna part you need. I don't think I have. I do have two you can have one tank bottle hold down things. I think your looking for. I was just heading out to Black rock mountain before he stopped in. Told him to stop back. Here are a few pics of my trip. It was cold and rainy. Loved it! Had to take my 68 26' due the size restrictions. It's fine haven't had her out in a year. She did fine till a water line busted. Oh well. Fix her soon. Got to love the old ones, but hey new ones break too! lol. Sorry about the side way pictures can't figure out the iPad. Haha.

Matt gets around doesn't he? Your trailer looks super. Looking at yours motivates me to get this one finished. I am going to buy a wineguard omini umbrella antenna. It will be perfect for what we need. As long as I can get FM and a couple of stations I am good to go. It will fit perfectly on the trailer and the price is right. It folds up and slides back into the tube. It stays hidden until you need it.

Yesterday my son and I did more polishing. It take time, but we are getting it done. I made a new door stop from a bottle stopper I had. I cut a second hole and made the first larger to exhaust heat and Carbon Monoxide. I think with the holes and the two vented doors I should be OK. I put a bed into position to put back together. My wife finished and we hung her Window covering. It is insulated to keep cold out and keep cold in during the summer.

You are crusing along. It's really looking good.

If you can sneak a fish tape up into the wall through that second hole, you should check whether there is a path up to the vent. Take a look at the photo I'm attaching. Above the first hole, Airstream cut away the horizontal c-channel to allow the heat and gasses to rise towards the vent. Further to the right, however, the c-channel may block anything from rising.

I will have to investigate. Here is my thinking with convection currents. Hot follows cold and with heat going out through the vents, and what heat does not make it should cool and sink heading out the back, when it hits the out side air. There is a bunch of open air back there. That is what I am going for.

you need the gasses out no matter what you go for. The black on the wall in Norms photo is the carbon from a badly adjusted flame. You do not want to be breathing that.

I agree. I will make sure everything is working well. I am going to be especially careful about a tight sealed cabinet for the refrigerator.
Today was a challenge. Not everything went well. I have two very good stove/ovens. Neither will fit. I am just going to bite the bullet and get a new one to fit in the space. I was especially bummed because I took a a hunk of vaneer off the kitchen cabinet by accident.

I know where you can get a very nice 1961 white Princess stove. If it will not fit your trailer was altered.

funny thing about the fridge... Everyone(including myself) worries about the gasses. The flame on a reefer is 1/20th that of one burner of the stove. I often have the oven blazing and multiple burners going. None of those emissions are vented out.

When I put in the new air conditioner I will use furnace aluminum tape to cover the gap between the outer and inner panel and make sure it does not mess up the gasket.

Did you find something that worked well for this? I'm washing our trailer but I'm not having much luck with the pine sap blobs.

I may have a new stainless in a box. It is for airstream. It's a 3 burner. I have one sold. I think I bought 4 if so I have a good deal for you. It will be the same size as I gave your son. I will check.

The stove area is 21" for a good normal fit. I might be able to squeeze 21 1/8 inches in. The stove you gave Matt was 21 3/8" wide. Just would not go. If you got one that will fit I will buy it off you.

Thanks Bulldog:

I am not in that big of a hurry. I got many other areas to work on. I am bumming because rain is supposed to roll in this weekend.

Rain rolling in again this weekend, so I got up and wired the battery with new wire. Hooked everything up and nothing. I tried some of the D.C. outlets and nothing is working. I am searching for my volt meter lost in the abyss of tools somewhere. Curious is there a switch for the D.C. or is it all ways hooked up?

When the rain comes in I am going to check out another stove that might fit.

Bulldog thanks for the wall channel. Adrienne and I are thinking of returning the favor. E-mail me.

Brian

Probably no switch for the DC, unless a PO has installed one somewhere. Any fuses on the battery cable lines that might have blown? What about a fuse terminal block somewhere, perhaps also installed by a PO?
