When we want the bathroom door to stay open we attach the velcro strap attached to lower section of bed:

Here's one more small custom thing I did to our 23 Safari. It came with an automatic refrigerator cooling fan operated be thermostat.....but no on/off switch such as our CCD had. Hence, here in the warm climes it came on at will day and night. It's not that warm that the fan is needed. So I installed a simple toggle switch near the fan and easily reached from the outside access door. I just pulled the hot wire to the fan and wired in the switch. It's not as convenient as having the switch inside the trailer, but I didn't have to put any holes in the interior.

Starflyte1… Thank you for the kind note & glad you like the thread!

Antique Pedaler… Thank you for another good customizing idea!

Cutting-board note… supporting bracket is called a folding shelf bracket…
Found at Rockler Woodworking… www.rockler.com
I’ll post an underside view tonight.

Bathroom door strap is actually webbing attached to bed frame with 2 screws…
And attached to door with a snap.

Malfunctioning Tappan Microwave wave replaced under warranty within a week.
(The turntable kept turning with fan and light on after food was removed & door closed)
Supplier InterCon Marketing sent the new one & it works fine.

Small leak from missing sealant over Vista View Window fixed...
See my fix and photos in Caulking & Sealants thread under Exterior Restoration:
http://www.airforums.com/forum...e-7626-11.html

Missing manuals… I received about 20 manuals, care/instructions in Delivery Case…
But missing at least another 20… Alan Wuebbenhorst, Airstream Customer Relations Rep is assisting me in getting the others, especially the important ones!

Atwood Hot Water Heater… although the Dealer Service tech mentioned during walk-through that it might be a good idea to get an anode rod to prevent corrosion… a quick look at our Atwood Water Heater manual and a call to the maker verifies that this would void their warranty! Which is another incentive to obtain and carefully read all manuals!

Cheers!

bina... looks like 5cats included his photo within his text message in post #76, rather than as a photo attachment.

Boondocking

Then on to boondocking at a place called Peg Leg Smith...
During this sunny day our two solar panels maintained our batteries between 90- 95%, and produced 37.2 amp/hrs by the end of the day. We had no problem running two Fantastic Fans, a rear refrigerator fan, and stereo throughout the day!
