i'm ricky, the ghost writer for my dear 98 year old friend that actually owns the trailer. she has had an airstream since around 1986 and i heard stories about her and her late husband, traveling for many years both here and in europe (different trailer). this past winter i was able to stay with her where she winters in florida. i loved it! i met a lot of really great people and hope to repeat the experience. even though i spent many hours tinkering and reading the owners manual, lol, it was a very enjoyable winter.
i've picked up a lot of info here and i think at this point i've got twinkie in my blood for life. some day i'll find out what that unmarked switch near the door controls, even if i have to trace it to whatever it is connected to! it reminds me of the episode of "married with children" where al tears apart the house in a similar situation as i. the trailer doesn't have a dog house light so i should be safe ;-)
