Re: B190 database

And the new one is starting to show an issue with the way I've been reporting info. Take these three lines: Year - # Built - Sequence Numbers we've seen so far 1992 - 90 - 300356-300481 1993 - 225 - 300564-300701 1994 - 158 - 300706-300849 Start with the 1994 row. The lowest number we have for 1994 ...

Re: levelling jacks?

I don't know of anyone that has. I've been kicking around the idea of putting in an air suspension system that's controllable at each corner. Seems like that could handle a few inches of slope, which for me would cover the bulk of situations. Even if the slope in one direction (say, side-to-side) is...

Re: NY 1989

This was posted on the Facebook group a few weeks ago after it showed up on eBay . Turns out it was made by another Thor company and they slapped Airstream on it without authorization. This has the same pictures as the eBay ad, including the cactus and mountains that are much more likely to be in Ca...

Re: Buying it back...

Some misc things today. Got the front curtain installed. That's a lot harder than you'd expect. Did the rubber gaskets on a window. That's still really hard to do. One window to go. Replaced the light covers on the bunk lights. For some reason ours had dried and shattered (maybe from sun and not hav...

Re: New Member - Pittsburgh

We have a bunch of people in the PA, NJ, MD, and NY area. In fact, I'm working on planning a get-together somewhere in eastern PA for the spring (which reminds me, I need to get back to that). Unfortunately, a lot of people don't check in here regularly - if you use Facebook, the group Airstream B19...

Re: 1993 B190 Restoration / Modification in San Diego

Looks good! Usually bleach is the recommended sanitizer for the water system. You mix up a certain concentration then dump it into the tank. Something like a quarter cup of bleach for every 16 gallons in the water system, so I'd say no more than half a cup of bleach for the B190's system. Mix it wit...

Re: Replacing the converter

I don't see why that smart charger wouldn't work. If you were using a lot of 12 volt devices, it might be overloaded, but you'd have to have a lot of devices going for that to be a problem, I think, and a short time doing that would be covered by the battery, I'd think. Can't help with #1. Note the ...

Re: Rear Lockers...

I'd like to revisit this post about lockers or limited slip differential conversion. There has been some discussion on FB. Does anyone have any experience doing this or hearing about whether it is possible? I'm asking because I plan to talk to my mechanic about the possibility but if it is an obvio...

You’re pulling the top off? What are your plans?
It's probably better shown than explained. :)

Re: Gen 3 or 4? Which is more desirable?

Take a look at this thread that lists differences between the years, and don't be afraid to peruse the two galleries (see links in the top right of every page) to see the differences on the Airstream part.
