Tx Hill Country 63 GT faucet replacement
This is my fourth a/s, in fact, I have owned this particular one twice. Maybe a story for the future. We also lived in '69 31' in Soldotna, Alaska for almost three years. No 110 power, no running water, hand dug cesspool, etc.. Now that I see that in print, prehaps we should write a couple of books about Airstreams in the sub Arctic.
Back to the problem at hand, as we owned this one before, I recognize my left handed repairs to other water and drain lines.
In the rear service hatch there is a small access hole under the sink. It is to the left and maybe six from the base of the sink faucet. I can just bearly get my hand on the tubing fittings and the retaining nuts much less get tools
up in there. I can't even reach the base of the tub faucet. I thought of making the access hole bigger, but there just no way, as any cutting would get into the sink, the sink base or the tub. My next idea is to remove the sink from the top, drill out the rivets, get it out if possible, if not, at least try to get hands and tools on the base fittings. That whole concept scares me, I am afraid of cracking and breaking fibreglass.
I hope that someone can come to my rescue and till me how to do this the easy way. For me, there are very few easy Airstream repairs. I always make them ten harder than necessary.
Bob, Don't say too much about the Hill Country, the locals are trying to keep this place a secret. My wife, Kathy of 'ChicknKathy' works a couple of miles from Mo Ranch for a very famous, wacky inventor.
Thanks - Chick
