    Not sure how this function works but I'll give it a shot. The only reason I used the old panel was to keep the two 50 amp fuses for the pos and neg battery connections and the ammeter shunt. the two grey wires on the left are the feeds from the new converter, one marked neg. the connections behind the old panel are the same as for the old converter with a pos and neg feed to the new fuse panel to feed the trailer systems. Trailer is stored for winter now so I can get at it if you need anything more specific. Hope this helps.....Phil.

    I have been on the fourms for over 4 years and I am still researching and learning. There is much to absorb when you get into bringing these things back to working condition. I have learned from other RV folks (not all airstreamers) you will always have something to do with these rigs. It comes with the territory. Make sure you number and take pictures of your parts and where they go. It makes life much easier. I learned that lesson the hard way. Don't be afraid to drill new holes and add new rivets. When I took my ABS parts out I cut them in huge sections and glued them back together. I worked around swimming pools for many years. You can glue PVC to ABS. The insert on the trim is marine vinyl that my wife bought at Joann's. It is easy to work with and it looks great.

    Thanks for the info! My bath is basically just positioned in there with few rivets, no trim. I easily pulled out the tub surround today and will look at the sink and other ABS parts. Toilet is already out. Your Krylon aluminum looks amazing. I am just starting on my renovations and spending a lot of time researching and reading, and thinking. Tomorrow I will take photos and post on the forums for some direction/help. meanwhile, what is the "insert"? Thanks! Sara

    I saw some old photos and posts of your bathroom redo (1998). Where did you get the aluminum trim you used in the bath. all of mine (69 safari) is missing and need to replace after painting tub and sink. Thanks, Sara

    Even though we do not own an airstream this is the best site for info. We have a '73 TravelEze tt with a magic chef range/4 burners. I am looking for a model # what I can read on the tag is BT22 (maybe a D?) then 4TVX. Could you possibly tell me your model # on yours? Thx

    Brian did you change your name? er your forum name (nik) from SIU Bound ?
    Why'd you do that? Has your destination changed?
    It'd be a good idea IMHO if the forum would notate somewhere in the header or here in the profile when a name change happens.
