Airstream restore.

Got some good work accomplished today. Im helping a new neighbor in the small park here, put together an older Airstream T.T.,

A little back ground,,,,, the owner bought it in California,,, paid another friend to tow it from Ca. to Texas. The trailer was gutted out except the fried burnt wiring that suffered high voltage in low voltage wire. I.E. running 110/120 volts a/c thru 12 V d/c... not a pretty sight. Anywho...

Me and Murphy,dealing with the move,

Well Mr. Murphy, (Murphy's Law) sneaks out after lurking in the shadows.

Everything was going smooth,, getting everything all gathered up and stored and packed for a huge journey to another RV park, on the other side of the city, A smaller park, in a quiet country setting, Some say its 40 miles from nowhere, turn left, then left again. While getting everything for the move,, it was a balmy 100 plus degrees, Sun baking down on ya and making you feel like a chocolate chip cookie on  pan…
