June in CO....part one.

We couldn't resist pulling up in front of this Diner with the Airstream for a photo!

Pirate flag....check.  Flip flops on......check.  Airstream level.....check.  Time to relax in Salida.

This was our original alley location.  Later in the summer we 'moved to the new digs'.

The Dometic: More details and photos for the refrigerator.

Copper hood before patina

This little fan is now mounted below the coils behind the refrigerator.  It  helps ventilate.

Our all time low was 38 degrees in the box and 28 degrees in the freezer!  The refer was empty too.  This is one of two temperature monitor alarms.

Copper hood after the patina.  Sweet!

Cardboard pattern development for the funnel/scoop for the flu gases.  

Original funnel.

New installed funnel.

I'll just throw in a photo of the new Performing Arts Center!  Woops.

New vent cover for refrigerator.   He didn't make this piece, but purchased it from Inland RV.  The vent cover also has a roof flashing for the penetration through the roof.

The original flashing for the 1 1 /2 " hole!

This is the original hole after the vent cover was removed.  Tiny little hole.

Derald cut a 5" x 22" NEW hole for ventilation.
