Re: Towing a Trailer

I used to tow a car on a dolly with mine, combined weight of ~3,200 lbs or so, and I saw as low as 7 MPG a few times. One time was 5.2 but I suspect that was due to a lot of generator running or something. Solo, 10-11 mpg wasn't unusual.

Not related to maintenance, but wondering which gas tank the generator line is tied into. Just purchased a 1991 B190 and trying to learn as much as possible about my B190.

The front tank in mine. If you crawl under, it's tee-d off just before the fuel selector.

That "I" as the first digit of the Airstream VIN is interesting. Every other one I've seen is a "1".

Re: Replacement for Dometic RM2301 fridge in 1990 model

Hello all, My fridge has stopped working and I should either a new one or replace the cooling unit. I have decided to go with a new 2-way fridge. However, Dometic does not make RM2301 anymore. My only option seems to be Norcold 3152. However, the RV mechanic is telling me the waster water pipe back...

I just found this post that goes through 1991 wiring, just in case other people are looking for it:

I was so young and foolish then. And wrong about a few things...I'll make some corrections.

Re: Fuse for bunk lights?

In mine, there's a switch on the end of the cabinets (driver's side, above the couch) that lets you turn off those lights without climbing into the bunk. Check that.

But I don't think they're on a separate fuse.

Re: Secrets of the 92-96 Auxiliary Battery Set-Up

Hello all, new here with a recent purchase of a 1998 b-van. Where is the stock auxiliary battery located. I can’t seem to find it but it is working! It’s too hot right now in Texas to keep poking around. I believe it is in the same spot on all the years? If so, when you open the hood there should b...

So the clamp is the problem, correct?
Sounds like it. I'd pull it off and hit it with the battery brush (sandpaper if you don't have one). Caution, it's lead, so don't lick it or anything like that.

Re: Post-Covid Suspension - A summary

I think there are a lot of good ways to make it better, but my thought is that it makes sense to me to not build on old parts. For example, the leaf springs are now 30 years old. They're tired. Sure you can add another leaf or whatever, but I bet new leaf springs will make a huge difference in handl...

Thanks Skater. I found them right after I posted. Duh!

Very common part.
This is one good thing Amazon has done for us - a few years ago, I couldn't find parts like that and our drawer slides anywhere but specialty RV parts places...and then at high prices. Now Amazon has them all.

Hello,

Has anyone replaced the copper-colored metal cabinet struts on the 3 large oak cabs on the driver's side? Mine are starting to get weak.

My rig is a 1993. These parts may be "unobtainium". Thanks.
Are they these?
