Windows

As Far as I know all of the windows in my Argosy are glass. But the guy to ask would be Andy at Inland RV.

Windex has nothing abrasive in it so you won't scratch anything using it. If you use Windex and paper towels and get scratches, they are from the paper towels. It's easy to scratch plastic with paper towels, especially the ones for drying you hands. To clean plastic windows, you should really use soft, clean, cloths.

Hi George, going back to the frig I did not see it mentioned. TIP: you must keep the trailer level in all directions when using the frig due to the ammonia can crystallize and cause a blockage in the line if it is not kept level. Going do the road is not an issue because you are moving and vibrating. But I have been told to keep it level even when going into a diner for a meal. This is a very basic explanation and I have been known to get lazy and not get it 100% level but it is always close.

As far as the windows if you have a little herculite logo in the corner, it is glass. Some people put in Plexiglas, which has no logo, if they break one and go the cheap route. If you see a logo wipe to your heart is content. I did scratch mine in a spot because of a polishing pad after stripping the paint off the Argosy and polished her.

We keep the trailer plugged into the house when we're not on the road. Our Dometic automatically switches over to 120V when we have shore power. I tend to keep a 12 pack of Newcastle Brown Ale in there for "Emergency Lawn Mowing Refreshment"...

There should be a push-button at the bottom of the fridge control panel that when you push it strikes flint and creates a spark to light when on gas. There is a viewing hole to see the blue flame when the gas actually lights. I do remember one time taking a propane "fire starter" and putting it near the ignition point to light it that way. That involved removing the outside panel and lighting from the backside, a procedure probably not recommended.

That ignitor didn't work on our old fridge, I had to manually light it from the back. It was a bit of a pain in the posterior when it was raining!
