The 1992 B190 in my driveway.

Postby runningdog » Fri Jun 15, 2018 12:52 am

I sold my 2012 class C for the better quality and usability of a 1992 Airstream B190.
It's been in my driveway four days and a tune up I have already I have repaired:
the water heater, the furnace, interior lighting, porch light, front vent, and a plethora of little fixes.

The generator has 140 hours on it but produces no electricity. On my unit, there is no circuit breaker (only the 5 amp fuse). I "flashed" the field hoping that might give it the impetus work. I'll save the removal and repair 'til last.

Anyway, I am glad to have found this site and all the other fortunate individuals blessed with an Airstream B190.

Nice looking rig. I'm curious about the black... not sure what to call them, "patches" at the bottom corners of the upper front window and the black strip that runs the length of the van below the upper windows. Decoration, or are they serving a purpose?

Thanks!

How did I miss those? I think I was distracted by the stripe which looks more gray than blue. There are two strips in the middle of the upper windshield, too...very interesting.

The stripes are what I call "geezerized." They are the odd attempt for the previous owner's idea of personalizing the coach. There are also some places where scratches are covered up with poorly matched paint patches. I should be able to bring it back to it's formal glory... I think.
