    It appears we are going through similar issues. I have a 72 Ambassador 29 and am dealing with what to do next-Bathroom floor or wheel/axles. I wanted to know if your trailer's frame is 4" or 5". I am trying to understand these early 70's models, frame sag, etc. Stuff that I am sure is buried in this site somewhere. Good Luck!

Doesn't look like much, but I reinstalled the water tank and plywood supports. Water level sensors are all working and lights in control panel as well. New pump is roughed in but will wait till kitchen counter assembly is back in place prior to anchoring it. I'm not putting the propane furnace back in so I should have plenty of room under there. NOTE: for any of you out there planning on removing and reinstalling your water tank....use a floor jack to hold it(tank) up then slide the plywood about...

More pleasant temperatures have re-motivated me(plus I reminded myself what a new one costs) to start back up with the restoration of the Airstream. Last weekend I painted the frame at the wheel wells and the tounge with Rust Bullet. This weekend I will be re-installing the water tank and hooking up the new water pump.

Continued demolition at the galley. Removed heater. Squirrel cage is completely full of dirt dober nests but still moves freely.

Water pump fires rite up but wouldn't move any water when bench tested. Started trying to disassemble it and the pot metal bolts started breaking. Time for a new quieter one!

All copper looks good, except for one spot where it burst due to freezing I'm sure. All new hoses where needed and should be good to go.

Finally starting to work on the major sytems. Removing galley lower cabinet was not as bad as I thought it would be. Exterior of heater appears to be in good shape. Duct may have to be replaced. Water pump still works when its switch is thrown. Appears water leaks over the years have taken there toll. Most of the flooring will have to be replaced. Fun Fun.

Finally buffed and installed the last of the interior panels that I am going to remove vinyl from. Decided to do just the front endcap section for now. Also installed the newly painted front screen and window trim sections.

The PO (neighbor) showed up the the original electric jack. He removed it when he parked the trailer 25 years ago. After pulling pulling the motor apart and cleaning it up, it worked !!! Going to need a new rocker switch as it only works in one direction. Don't...
