Hi, Jim and Lynn in north Florida.
Bought 64 19' Globe Trotter preparing for a little "walkabout" when we retire.
Trailer pulled smoothly at city speeds, but the wiring looks like a mess. It was stright wired for shore power only, no battery. Oh, well. Diagram and meter. It will keep me out of trouble for a while.

Cool Welcome

Great to have you here. We all feel your pain. We are still trying to get all the electrical stuff working at the same time. Currently trying to figure out why the bathroom light overheats.

Like you, we are planning to have Moby done by retirement (2years 3 mo and 9 days), and at the rate we are going, we might make it.

Don't forget the chat room on Tuesday night. about 9 your time.

Hi Jim & Lynn - Welcome to the Forums. You'll find the info that you need here.
We are writing this in Jacksonville camped in our Airstream in my Dad's back yard. We hope to see you at the panhandle rally in January.

Welcome to the forums!

And welcome to almost retirement! I can tell you honestly that retiring is the best thing we ever did! Whole heartedly recommend it!

We would love to see pics of your Airstream! Try the search tool and hunt for electrical solutions, you will find threads with the phrase you key in.

This is the place to find all answers for Airstreams!
