Re: Replacement range vent

This wasp nest may have generated some unwanted guest inside the RV before we bought it! Now I really want to replace the vent with one that has a shutter!

Re: 2012 Winter Project list

O.K. here is our project list... We’re going end to end through the B190 that we just purchased. Drivetrain, chassis and RV conversion is in great shape. However, it had been sitting for awhile, so it’s a long list. <smile> Just finished… Thorough cleaning and check of drivetrain, LP & water sys...

Re: Newbies: Please read

Welcome to B190, Swampy.

Glad to have you join us. Considering that there were only a couple thousand B190's made, that is pretty amazing that you found one in the UK! I'll bet you are king of the road when you roll down the highway!

Regards, Kentuckian

Replacement for waste tank roof vent

Pros : 1. According to the company the construction of the vent creates a mild suction at the roof vent when a breeze flows across it (vehicle stationary or moving).

Replacement for waste tank roof vent

We decided to replace the factory vent with the 360 Siphon product from 360productsinc.com. Process : 1. Remove old vent, 2. Scrape off all old sealant, 3. Clean the vent pipe and roof (I used acetone) to remove remaining sealant and any oil and wax that might cause new sealant not to stick. 4. Dril...

When I fired up the furnace it worked fine but after a short period of time the fan began making a screeching noise. I pulled the furnace out of the RV a...
