I am a newbie to Airstreams, having become the 3rd owner of a '71 Tradewinds. I believe it to have set the last 4 to 5 years, virtually unused, just aquiring mold and
mildew. Cleaning became the 1st order of business. Checking out the major systems
is next. The 1st system to be worked out is the Norcold 3-way refrigerator. On 110
the rectifier gets blazing hot-to-the-touch, the condenser stays cool, and no change in
internal temp of the refer. In reading the manual, it recommends pulling the unit and
laying it on its left side for 1 hour or more. Two questions: 1. Is there anything I could
do to first to forego pulling the unit? 2. Is the left side the one closest to the rectifier
I will thank you for the help that this forum has already provided. This will, probably, be the first of many questions. Again, Thank you.
