Maybe an intake manifold vacuum gauge?

That's a frequent question.

Are we slightly climbing, or is it our imagination?

Could have used one in my previous MH, while we were traveling in Ga, I didn't see a sign on the way up, we slowed but thought it might be the new computer I had installed a few weeks prior, on the return trip saw the sign at the top warning of steep incline. Usually you notice trees inclined or trucks slowing, with no traffic it was hard to tell how bad an incline it was.

I agree Andy!
We have my GPS set up with the Altitude as one of the parameters, and love that feature.
It told us that we pushed the Airstream up over 9500' on our trip over the Great Divide, near El Morro National Monument, NM on its trip home from KS, to CA.

Has one in the Instrument Panel(Labeled as a Economy Gauge, but same thing), otherwise that would be important!

Make sure you leave room to look out the windshield.

Wow, looks cool! If nothing else, they will give you something to look at when the road gets boring.

As I have said before Charly, that is STUNNING, and your whole build is an inspiration!

As your is a Turbo diesel, you have some things I wont need until I drop my 6BT in.

Would you believe my 22 year old called me yesterday with an update on his project... and that spawned another important gauge!

He just put an Innovate Air/Fuel Meter in his Mercedes 300e in preparation for his Turbo Conversion...
I like this one;

Thumbs up Wow!

Absolutely awesome dash! Completely cool! I'd love to see what it looks like when you get the GPS/Radio installed. The clock by the way is perfect. Can't quite call it a man-cave, maybe a man-cockpit?

Have fun using it in on the road.

Cheers,
GinMame

Did you label them all? I know I would have to, just wondering how, if you did...?

Hi,
Am I wrong, or am I noticing that you've moved the transmission selector over to the left side of the steering wheel? Another question, the 'bullet' type A/C vents, are a bit smaller than what is originally on the A/S motorhome dash, are these too small? Haven't really driven my 'new' '89 much down the road, so really don't know if the dash A/C is sufficient to cool the cab area or not.
Thanks, Derek
