Re: Are my batteries working correctly?

Skater has a airstream vin# registry it might solve the mystery. If you haven't given it to him yet its usually on the radiator support.

Re: 1998 for sale in Sacramento

I agree 20k is a bit high for 128.000 miles but the 98 with the wet bath is more desirable. Being bone stock might be a plus knowing someone hasn't monkeyed with it. Plenty of us have had issues with previous owners mistakes or their trust in nitwit repairmen. Seems the class b has gained popularity...

Re: Are my batteries working correctly?

Todd Sounds like you've figured it out. Definitely seal up the holes in the generator compartment. It could be used to your advantage but definitely mount the batteries to the floor or in a box for safety sake if you decide to replace them. I remember the stereo installers methods were sometimes que...

Re: Are my batteries working correctly?

Todd I've been thinking about your system when you say squealing it could be the fan in the inverter. The converter also has a fan but only comes on under heavy load being a 95 the fan may be seized up mine was on my 93 as most other things were. It seems like the original system is still working it...

Re: Are my batteries working correctly?

Unfortunately most of us have dealt with gremlins from previous owners. Its seems yours may have had a third battery under the couch? Mine did with it charging from the converter and a solar panel. I learned really quick after we pulled the down pretty good and I plugged in at the house my CO-2 dete...

Re: Are my batteries working correctly?

You understanding of the system is correct should be a relay the isolates the chassis battery when the ignition is off. The switch on the dash and the cables look to be something a previous owner has added. The dash switch maybe wired wrong or something you need a good voltmeter and some investigati...

Re: Converter Amperage Choices

Another thing is your going to need a ground bus for the shunt just to help keep everything from having to go into the fuse box. Check out welding lead for your wiring its got a better flow rate and super flexible I also found the braded sheathing to help protect it and heat activated adhesive shrin...

Re: Converter Amperage Choices

Sector9surf Its definitely time to replace the converter. The breaker tripping is a concern. Hopefully it is the unit itself not something else causing the problem. The new converter will be better for charging AGM or gell cell batteries if your planning on hooking the aux battery into the existing ...

Re: Upgrading Front Seats?

Hi, new owner here of a 1998 B190. My driver powered seat is not working properly as if one of the motors is not working. You mention the motors are cheap. Where can you get them? You'll need the number off the motor and make do a goggle search. But im guessing you can find it at (mouser electronic...

Re: Converter Amperage Choices

Thank you both for the info. I ordered a 45amp upgrade model from bestconverter.com. Planning a 72 day road trip this December with a lot of boondocking in national forest and BLM land so this should help with the charging from the generator and on the rare occasion I plug into shore power. Good ch...

Re: Converter Amperage Choices

It comes with a new filtered board for sensitive electronics it a direct fit for the parallax 6300 only replaces the lower unit. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181106/2e36c7de8ae1709a28c24e3bf20ada4d.jpg https://uploads.tapata...

Re: Solar Panel Mounting Diagrams

Thought that was a good idea. Post some pictures when its finished I would ...
