Thanks everyone! I appreciate all the input. Tomorrow looks like a good day to work on my coach. I will learn how many water leaks I have. I will also get some LP flowing through that baby and see how many gas leaks I have to repair. This is going to be fun!!

Window screen - any screen material - just get new spline too (the rubber cord).

And when you get new spline, remember to get a spline tool...

Hi, mtnman,

Hey, go to "User CP" (control panel) and change your "Currently Looking" to "Done Got."

My '75 Argosy 28 appears to have 5/8" plywood in it.

You can get Purple Stuff, or Super Clean, from almost any aouto parts store, I cut it 50/50 with water to clean Vintage Thunder. Which window do you need?
Pm me with the location and size, I may have a spare I can let go fairly cheap.

8-I need one window whats is thickness, who and where?

Thanks,

While a generic door seal may work for the refrigerator, it would likely be much easier if the seal were OEM or a very similar replacement. The original refrigerator would have been a Dometic. The OEM style gasket may still be available from a number of sources. My suggestion, however, would be to be sure that the refrigerator is actually operable before jumping into gasket replacement. If the amonia-based cooling system is defective, repair can become quite costly.

Since your coach is a Minuet, you might want to verify that the original window material was actually glass. On many of the Minuets, the side windows were produced with a then-modern acrylic material -- my 6.0 Metre Minuet still has its acrylic side windows. The front and rear windows were most often a laminated safety glass product. I have seen so few of the 7.3 Metre Minuets that I am not certain whether they followed the same general mold as the two smaller models both of which frequently were equipped with the acrylic side windows. Some automotive glass shops can be helpful with replacement glass, but my luck hasn't been too good with those in my area -- I usually have my Airstream dealer take care of glass issues when the coach is at his shop for routine maintenance.

Good luck with your projects!

Kevin

YES, the refer does work. Man, am I glad of that!
