Re: Furnace removal?

When she had it at my place a few weeks ago, we found that the circuit breaker on the furnace kept tripping, so I guessed that the fan motor was burned out or somehow jammed. Jennifer, yes, you need a wrench of the appropriate size to loosen that. In mine, the wiring was long enough to pull it out s...

Re: B190 database

We have a new low score! Last Chance, a new member, just picked up a 1989 with the sequence number 300008! This makes me wonder - Jennifer's 1989 has no Airstream number on it; it may have been made at the Okanagan factory with Airstream logos (there's some things like better plumbing fittings that ...

Re: B19O in the Bronx!!

I don't remember if they have an account here, but there's someone on the Facebook group that is in that area, I think - the name is something like Destiny Monet.

Re: Anybody cover their B190s for the winter?

I googled "Class B RV cover" and got this. The second one should do it. There are probably other options.

Re: Vinyl ceiling supplier or part #

I thought someone in the Airstream Addicts Facebook group found a replacement, but I couldn't find it looking through the posts. You might also search in AIR Forums.

Re: Anyone converted the stock AirCon to a thermostat control?

I have the "cool/warm" knob... but I'm looking at more of an easy to set temperature control... even the old dial thermometers in a house (or tied to the heater in the B190) have a temperature range. I'd like to be able to set something more precise, like 72°F. Possibly even something that will tur...

Re: Anyone converted the stock AirCon to a thermostat control?

Yours doesn't have a thermostat? It's not marked with temperatures, but mine has a cool - warm knob. I don't think I've ever seen one without a thermostat.

Re: Buying it back...

Rear tank is out, thanks to some unseasonably warm weather today! There was only about 11 gallons in it, which makes me think it was often running off the rear tank even when I had the switch set to the front. I got the straps for the new tank, but they didn't include the threaded portion. Since I h...

Re: Buying it back...

I drained just over 10 gallons from the rear tank today. I'm guessing there's still ~12 gallons in it, but I need to figure out how I'm going to store the bad gasoline over the winter until I can dispose of it in the spring (our county has hazardous waste drop-off days, but only spring through fall ...

Re: Buying it back...

Front fuel tank is done. I have to reinstall the propane tank and fix the generator exhaust (it fell while I was working), but the fuel tank is done. Next up, the rear tank. I think I saw why it spills fuel when it’s full - the air line looked like it was torn (chewed?) open at the top. Fun. But I i...
