    Hi Randy - New member here on AF and a brand new AS owner. Purchased a 2017 AS FC 20 in July this year. I currently live in middle TN, but I'm originally from Marianna, Fl. (Not too far from you guys, if you're still in New Brockton I spend half my time down there and half up here in the hills. Question: Dixie RV between Defuniak and Crestiview; do you have a opinion of their Service Dept as it pertains to Airstreams? Unfortunately, AS dealers/service are few and far between, so trying to plan ahead for warranty work, etc. I purchased my unit at Chilhowee RV in Knoxville and will be taking it back there next week for "bugs". Jury's still out on them until further dealings BTW, I am as new to AS as a baby is to this crazy world, so I have a lot to learn and right now I'm in OVERLOAD! Have read some of your posts and I feel comfortable that you're the "real deal". Thanks. Betty

    I need to replace the Univolt in my '88 34' Excella. There seems to be a myriad of answers to this, one thread says a Progressive Dynamics 9245/9260, one says the Intelli-Power 91XX....etc. Your web site suggests the Boondocker for multi stage charging and warranty. Would this still be your recommendation for my failing TU-750-6?
    Thanks for your time,

    Hi Randy, thought you might be interested in my quick follow-up with installing the Xantrex XADC. It turned out pretty nice. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

    I would study the Xantrex TrueCharge XADC and distribution panel. It is not as difficult as it might seem. Also, the book Managing 12 volts is a great resource.
    I will be glad to help you if I can.

    Would u be willing to give some advice on this project i am working on. i was sent your way. any help would be appreciated greatly. thx. benjo

    I would try to keep the components as close together as possible. You will need 1 or more battteries, a 120 volt breaker box, a converter, a fuse (12 volt) panel and a power cord. Locating the battery would be first and then get the rest as close as possible to keep the wires as simple as possible. There are many other things to consider. I would PM 68 Overlander who owns and has been very helpful to members who are in need of help in this area. He could help you much better then I could.

    Good Luck.
