Fuse protection for inverters

I just read where someone paid $200.00 for a 200 Amp fuse between their battery and their inverter.  Look on E Bay under car amplifier circuit breakers.  They can be reset instead of a one time thing and they are listed at under $10.00.  At that price it would be prudent to use them at all battery feeds!

Looking For Sheet Metal Trim

Does anyone know where I can find a piece of the diamond shaped sheet metal that shows up blue in my photos ?  This sheet metal is 10 1/2 inches high and I need a piece 16 inches long. Thanks.

Champion Telstar

I am restoring a 1986 champion telstar and would like to know if there is anyone that owns one or has owned one that may know what the red rocker switch that is mounted next to the rear bed area on the outside of the shower area may go to ? I have traced it up to the rear area behind the refrigerator and further to the control level indicator panel. From there it goes to the headliner area with other wires. It lights and sends 12 volts DC when switched on. So far i haven't been able to…

Josh Rogan, Airstream Musician

I write for Airstream Life Magazine. I get to meet some amazing full-timers and write about them. Of course most of them live, work and play out of an Airstream, but sometimes I meet people who are new to Airstream, or that bring something so unique and fun to life that they could be written about anywhere.

 

Last weekend I got to meet Mike Michalowicz, a best-selling business author who accompanied me to an interview with a singer/songwriter/biker and stonemason named Josh…

Registering a vehicle

Hi,

I have been living in my 1977 Travel Queen RV in Yalaguina, Nicaragua for about a year.  Last week I received my residency card as a pensionado in Nicaragua.  This has taken the full year to obtain, now I'm good for five years, instead of having to cross the border and return every 90 days.  That's the good news, the bad news is that my VW dune buggy has been confiscated twice and now is hidden in the woods so it doesn't get taken permanently.  I had hired an agent to do the work…

neutral safety switch location on 1969 Winnebago

I have a 1969 Winnebago D-18 with a 318 ci engine with an A727 trannie. Can someone please tell me where the neutral safety switch is located? The engine does not crank over when i turn the ignition key. It is silent. I do not even here a click coming from the solenoid with fully charged batteries. My starter cranks over the engine when i touched the posts with an insulated screw driver so i know it is not the starter. I replaced the ignition switch and starter relay and still nothing. I am… Continue

Check the Toyota RV off of my bucket list. Done!

Bathsheba%20in%20the%20beginning.docx

I finally did purchase the '84 Toyota RV - Sunrader that I have wanted so long off of ebay. "Bathsheba" was delivered while I was in Europe in July.  Thank goodness I have friends who were willing to meet the carrier and drive her home for me -where she sat for eight weeks until I returned to the US.

Since them I have spent as many…

Our Maiden Voyage with a Half- renovated Scotty

John has been diligently working on our Scotty since we bought it in July. Those of you who read my last post know that we took a trip before we began any renovations. John totally stripped the camper and used the original parts as patterns to rebuild. We wanted to take Scotty on a trip to PA when our granddaughter was born, but Scotty was not ready.…
