My name is Butch Fadely, I have been doing alot of Voulenteer work in Mississippi. A friend that I go to Church with has given me a 1975 Airstream that has not been used in sometime. I took it to Virginia two weeks ago, all four tires blew out! LOL I am having electrical problems, need to rewire I think, I am also haveing Propane problems. I can't get the frige to work, I changed the thermal couple on the hot water tank, it worked for awhile then it quit.
Does anyone have a wireing diagraham also one for propane and water on a 1975?

Hi and welcome. What a great present! You'll most likely discover other issues as you go along - but they can all be fixed. Check out the search tool on the blue tool bar - it may be useful. Search for frig or refrigerator or broken fridge - you'll find a lot of info.

Your base price is right. Sounds like you put a little money into it everything can be made OK. Search tool will tell you how to check out what is wrong with fridge. Could be something simple or it could be $1000. The water heater sounds like a little dirt stuck in the gas jet. Pretty common and easy to fix. The fridge could be same problem. Or it could be gas pressure regulator. The local WBCCI unit may have someone to help you. Think about visiting one of their rallies and you will usually find someone who likes to help people troubleshoot problems.

Welcome to the forums. What a great gift you have. I am sure you will find the help you need here. Learn the search feature and take Dwight up on his suggestion about visiting a rally. We owners love to share information.

Perfect condition

This sounds like the "in perfect condition" Airstream I bought in Missouri earlier this year.

It may not be worth your while. Depends upon you appreciation of Airstreams, time and money.
