Geared to assist any individual anytime, anywhere, Average Joe's RV Refrigerator: Troubleshooting & Repair Guide is a handy book that will be of use for both personal and business needs. Book Review: "Average Joe's RV Refrigerator Troubleshooting and Repair Guide made me feel confident that I (an average Joanne) could pull out my own RV refrigerator and know what I was looking at, what to check first depending on the problem, and where to proceed from there. Without the guide, I'd never know where to start. There are a lot of photos and the troubleshooting charts are easy to read, with a column for symptoms, possible problem areas, and causes and remedies. They identify specific problems for which I need to call on a repair specialist but I was surprised to see that many of the remedies are simple enough that I would not be afraid to tackle them myself. This guide will help anyone assess problems with thier RV refrigerator and try, first, to fix it yourself, thereby saving on costly repair bills." frugal-rv-travel

Those were the days, my friends. That trip had a lasting effect and over time we realized we were destined to be full time RVers. In 1995 we sold our house and a Recreational Vehicle became our home.

Release Date: 2017-09-15
Genre: Transportation

The iconic shape and appearance of a streamline aluminum trailer sitting at a campsite or being pulled down the highway has captivated collectors and vacationing hobbyists for nearly 90 years. During this time, the exterior appearance of the trailer has changed very little, so recollections can range from seeing a 1937 Dodge Pickup to a 1969 Impala hauling one of these beauties. Today, restored rarities from Airstream, Silver Streak, Boles Aero, Clipper, and Spartan can command as much as $100,000 in the marketplace. These trailers have become symbols of American pop culture for several generations. Until now, very little information has been available to help you when it comes to restoring and updating one of these trailers. Daniel Hall, of the vintage restoration company Camper Reparadise, addresses all items of streamline trailer restoration thoroughly in this one-stop-shopping book. Details on your trailer and how to restore it are covered from trailer tongue to trailing bumper. Key restoration components including chassis, floor, exterior/interior skin, electrical elements, insulation, doorjamb refabrication, LP, plumbing, and polishing are all covered comprehensively in a visual, step-by-step format. Whether you're a collector car enthusiast, resident of a trailer campground, or a vacationing addict, owning this restoration guide will be an essential tool in keeping your trailer active, updated, and in immaculate condition. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Arial}
