Re: Diesel Heater???

That Propex does look interesting. It looks like it costs about twice as much compared to the standard Hydro Flame, but the reduced current draw might be worth the extra money for what you're doing.

Re: Where to find parts 1996 b190

Thanks! In my post, I mentioned that I bought it gutted, so I didn't remove anything, aside from some trash. I'm trying to build up the van so it will be street legal and functional. If you have any helpful information about where to source seatbelts, how to fix doors that won't open, or how to sto...

Re: Diesel Heater???

Seems like you'd just be eating through diesel instead of propane. In fact diesel had a lower energy density than propane, so you would actually need more of it than propane to get the same amount of heat. As someone who has spent many hours underneath a 1991 B190 recently, the only thing I can thin...

Re: Diesel Heater???

Does any one know if it's possible to remove the existing furnace and replace with one of these Wabasto or Chinese knockoff diesel furnaces, and install a diesel source? If it's possible, can you make use of the existing ducting? Has anyone done so or considered it? Sent from my LG-H873 using Tapat...

If they think it is worth 14k, my 94 would be worth 20k because it is in much better condition! I would predict 10k or less.

Re: Buying it back...

Fuel tank is completely out! Got some hose to use for the breather line today. I'm hoping to have time to work on it this weekend, maybe even get it back together. The last thing I need to do before reassembly is remove the stub of old filler hose from the filler neck - I couldn't access the clamp e...

Yes, it was sun damaged. Are there replacement kits available?
You'd have to check with Airstream, but I wouldn't worry about it, especially since you're selling it anyway.

Re: No electricity to monitor/pump/12V & now 110 outlet & more!

The heater (water heater, I assume) switch is near the monitor and water pump panel, right? They’re all together on mine. Probably use the same circuit and for whatever reason the wire isn’t getting power - disconnected somewhere or damaged (since fuses appear fine). If you have a multimeter or even...

Re: No electricity to monitor/pump/12V & now 110 outlet & more!

Well, I don’t even know anymore. My power is working both directly from the inverter and through the plugs with inverter on. It wasn’t before, I checked both. Maybe because the engine battery was dead? Pretty sure it didn’t work even before engine died. Monitors, water pump, and heater switches sti...
