Argosy 6.0 Minuet questions

Hi, Have just started working on a fix up of a 1977 6.0 Minuet. Question 1; is there a central panel like those in Airstreams that gives tank volumes and other info? Can't find one. Could possibly have been removed. Question 2; need to remove streetside front curved window. Have a new one but need to know how to get the old one out. All I have done so far is to remove the trim piece to access the lower rivets.
Thanks, Scott

The control panel should be over the cooktop. In 77 it could be gauges or led's. It depends on when in 77, our 78 has Led's but our 74,76,77 all had needle type.

The only way to remove the corner window is to drill out the exterior rivets. There is a thread here on that, I belive by Dave Spann? you can try a search for it with the search button above.

BTW Welcome to the forum and the Family of Airstreaming!

probably not

I don't think the Minuets ever had a central control panel. The only apparatus above the cooktop was a lever where you turned on the exhaust fan. No level indicators, charge indicators and idiot lights that never worked like on most Airstreams and regular line Argosy's. Probably better off without them.

Hi and Welcome - I'm not familiar with any control panel in our 78 Minuet other than the fuse controls in upper back storage area. Almost all info we have gotten on "Mini" either came from these posts/threads or out of the Argosy owner manual we ordered. I think what info you are looking for could be in the manual as it provides pictures of elec. outlet locations, capacities of different tanks(clear,grey,black) weight capacities, etc.

We are definitely going to have to look into an Argosy rally here in the near/somewhat near future since so many are coming on board and in close proximity or living in the wonderful state of Colorado!@! Leigh
