And as we must start at one end. It's the organization of the tongue.
It was like that.
I did not like it.
And missing things for here.
The thread of the jack screw was not good.
Also I wanted to function more.
So. Dismantling the jack.
Remanufacturing a motor housing.
To have a button more. And a power outlet.
For a work light or any accessory.
The additional button will controlling an automatic feedback system in up position.
For this system, it's nececary limit switches.
Adding. For up position.
For down max.
Modification of the jack is finished. Painting.
While drying, then.
Gas tubes were passing in bulk. I find.
The changeover not automatic. Not practical.
And badly placed
A new regulator changeover has arrived from the USA.
It is made in Italy. Maybe 400 km from home.
Oupsss... 250 milles.
I could have it than by bringing from the USA.
Mackenzie had inspected. He had approved.
Back on the tongue.
Cutting of impeding portions for the following work.
Part fixed in the triangle of the tongue for replace the damaged threads of the jack attachment.
The cutouts allow to pass this.
And ... Threads become metric. It's Europe here. Sorry. But better for me.
The jack returns to its place.
There is gas too.
In France, the bottles do not fill up. There is only change !
I discovered the filling of bottles in the USA.
I liked. I want to do it.
I'll talk about that later...
My old bottles did not come with the Airstream.
Refused for transport in the boat.
I had to re-order in the USA.
Also one bottle was lost !
Let's go back to the organization of the tongue.
A bracket was done.
The second bottle is found and arrived. Good.
One side it supports two sockets.
One for a US connection.
Other for European.
Other side. The gas regulator and automatic changeover.
With metal tubes for passing the two pigtails between the two bottles.
Like that, it's good for me.
But... The removed parts, they must be redone.
The passage of a pipe for electric wires.
Pieces redone with flange for the bottles.
The work is done quietly.
The days pass.
The trailer is bored to take the road.
Towards new landscapes.
