but, if considering precision temp - you may want to
get the RV model, which is about 1/2 the price.

Subject: [VAL] REFRIGERATOR PANELS

I Think this is where I write to to have my question sent to the VAC list... 
if not, let me know..
I have been trying to remove my top and bottom holding rails on my 
refrigerator doors. I removed all the screws. The area near them wiggles a little but 
something seems to be holding them (one each and every strip) fast in the 
center. I can't see anything and I don't want to force it and maybe break the 
plastic. I even went so far as to call the Domitec Techs.. and they said.. just 
remove the screws and it will come right off... No way. Has anyone else had this 
problem and sloved it??? Thanks  Mike

I don't understand the term "holding rails" - you
might have to explain this part - but I've recently
torn my fridge apart to repaint the door and repair
the inside door piece (plastic) on a 1959 dometic. 

the era of your fridge might be helpful too!

I haven't received the brochure yet but I understand it to be a catalog 
of all trailers available in 1954. I'll be making a color copy to send 
to Fred C. for the archives. If anyone is interested in a copy I'd be 
happy to send one. Let me know off list.

To a Fellow 1956 / 57 Vintage Airstream Owner:

I have just completed putting on my new plywood floor this past weekend and are 
planning to put my shell back on next weekend.  While doing the preliminary planning 
I was trying to figure out how the metal door stoop went back on (metal piece that 
goes on the floor in the entrance at the very edge of the plywood)?

The previous owners had put a layer of 1/2b plywood on top of the existing 5/8b 
plywood.  Therefore this metal piece was modified to work with the additional 1/2b 
plywood.  Obviously we removed all of the flooring.  Soooo, I have know idea if this 
is the original piece of hardware, and if it is, how it goes back on?????

If you have close up photograph you could forward to us it would be greatly appreciated.  

Thank You
