Re: Fridge removal woes

But the big comment I have for you is DO NOT INSTALL A REGULAR 110-VOLT DORM FRIDGE. Aside from the fact it would be a power-guzzling monster, and empty your batteries in very short order... those cheap mini-fridges are designed to be stationary. Even moving them from place to place when I changed ...

Re: tall b190 owner

yes they were. 96 has the gray pex plumbing. where can I make sense of this plumbing? toilet gone, shower gone but keeping kitchen water...can't figure out plumbing I have a hand-sketched drawing of mine, but it’s a ‘91 so it won’t match yours. But it’s pretty simple. Line from the tank to the pump...

Re: Buying it back...

I haven't updated this lately, mostly because I haven't done much to it lately, but I got a few minutes to play over the weekend. I installed the fridge fans and upper vent, so the camper can now be driven again! I need to take it out for some drive time.

Re: Are my batteries working correctly?

Ok....i think i see what youre saying. The new inverter is really only putting 120v out the sockets on front of it. It doesnt have a wire to tie into the house-120v outlets. Thw old one HAS that option. Thanks! Yeah, exactly. The one in our trailer is even more interesting - the incoming shore powe...

Re: Are my batteries working correctly?

The white wire appears to be standard household wire. So, it's probably the 120 volt AC output wire. I'm not sure what the best option wiring in an inverter would be, but one option would be to wire it into the automatic transfer switch so that when the inverter is turned on and starts producing pow...

Re: VIN Decoder

Here are my VIN Results. Very Wrong... Its a 1997 Unit on a 1996 Ford Econoline 350 Van. It does not have a Chevy engine. It's not a 1982 or a 2012 model. By using a pdf file I saved last summer I get much more accurate results. Any reason why? 1B9KGVAZXCJ301191 VIN Decode Results Variable Name Val...

Welcome! Were they still using the gray plastic (polybutelene) pipe in '96?

Re: Are my batteries working correctly?

For a test, a standard battery is fine. For permanent installation it has to be a sealed battery, since any offgassing would go into your living area.

Re: VIN Decoder

The VIN decoder worked fine for the vehicle - 1FDHS34G5KHA85388. Returned the correct information. I had difficulty identifying what would be the Airstream Number but found a difficult to decipher model number on a foil label on the post of the drivers door. It read VC2RT-111, and it returned 1969-...

Re: VIN Decoder

Thanks Skater - that's really slick! Worked great - the only think that looks funky is the Series mentions 'chevy'... maybe thats in the airstream DB. [image][/image] It's what's in their document. Some of the older Class As were built on a Chevy chassis, I think (or at least they had a 454 engine)...

VIN Decoder

I've now integrated the VIN decoder into the site! You can find a link for it on the navbar above, next to the link for the FAQ. Or click here! Please let me know if you have any problems - it was pretty well tested before, but I may have goofed somewhere during the integration.
