Airstreams History

 

Air Stream is the Harley Davidson of travel trailers. When you see one as you passing it on the road you automatically are taken in by the sleek lines and the familiar mirror of the skin.

In Jackson Ohio Air Streams are born through a production line that is ¾ of a mile long. You will find not one robot like what you might at an automotive plant. Piece by piece the trailer comes to life in a sequence laid out and improved upon since the time of Wally Byam in 1929.

Tips on how to avoid a big mess when using a dump station.

This is the universal Sign For dump stations.

 Storage Oregon has the only Salem / Keizer RV Storage with a Free Dump Station !

Almost all trailers will have two holding tanks. The black tanks will hold sewage and grey water tanks will hold waste water from sinks and showers. Always dump the black water tank before the grey water tank so the grey water tank can clean the residue from the hose with soapy water.

 

A great idea is to wait until your black water tank is half full before dumping. You will get better tank evacuation due to the release pressure will be greater.  You might want to think about topping up your holding tanks with water just before dumping. Do not leave the black-water tank valve open when hooked up at a campsite. This will cause the solid waste to be left behind while all of the liquids drain.

 

A good idea is to use a heavy-duty 6-8 ft long sewer hose to make handling easier. Check and make sure that you have the right size fittings. There is a difference in the fittings due to changes in model types. Always a good idea to attach the fittings to make sure they are what you need before hitting the road.

 

Make sure to take with you two hoses, One for sewer, and one for fresh water. A good idea is to have two distinct buckets with lids that you can tell apart from the other so that your fresh water hose doesn’t get anywhere close to the sewer or mixed in with the other hose. You will not want to use your fresh water hose if they do due to health issues.

 

“Pack and use disposable rubber gloves. Learn to remove the gloves without touching the outside – peal them off (inside out) and throw away. Leave the dump station area cleaner than you found it.”

Of course you may already be a pro at dump station sites and that will make the movie with Robin Williams even more hilarious as he essentially goes through a scene of what not do when removing waste from the “RV”. Continue reading

Gord’s Aluminum Polish

On sale at our location in the Salem / Keizer area is a product you will Come to Love.

Gord’s Aluminum-Chrome-Cleaner-Polish-Sealer

This product has cut our polishing time down from three hours to a mere half hour and which includes the prep time of gathering the red  shop  rags that Gord says to use.

Apply the polish directly to the spot , normally a two by two I have found to work best and rub it in with the red shop rag for a minimum of two minutes. This allows Gord’s Polish to work on the Aluminum for max effect. Then use a clean red shop rag or micro fiber towel to buff off the now blackened polish and revel the mirror shine. In less than ten minutes you can have a section of polished  metal that you will be proud of. Now a word of warning is that you must maintain the polish wetness to achieve the desired mirror effect.  It has been advised not to use this in direct sunlight as the polish will dry to quickly. Personally I have attempted to use the product in other than perfect shade and it doesn’t work well at all.

Before and After

If your like me you scan the instructions to get an understanding of what must be done or not read them at all. I strongly suggest for maximum results you do not take this approach. For instance, The instructions that came with Gord’s Polish stated that you must buff the product off when it is still wet unlike most polishes. I let it dry and attempted to buff it of with a buffer and ended up with what I call a patina, gord’s calls it the burnished look. Not the desired effect I was looking for. I was looking for that mirror image that will give you a suntan in moments in direct sunlight. So I read the instructions, applied the procedure and low and behold, a mirror shine just like I was looking for.

Where the clouds appear only 15 Minutes of work

Of course it has been years since this Airstream had been polished. So with a liberal amount of Gord’s Polish I set to work with the suggested (0000) steel wool and a red shop rag to make sure the years melted away to a brite and wonderful finish. It still took me less time to make this happen than what it would have using conventional methods. Truly a miracle polish that can make my work easier.
