Looks like my ex-Minuet, brings back some sweet old memories I am tellin' you!! Hopefully they will hang out around here some more and we can tell them everything that is broken or will break on their vintage unit.

BTW, looks like they are sipping ginger ale to me, John!

Nice Argosy! I looked far and wide for one, and finally bought an AS closer to home. Not that I don't love my AS, but I adore the Argosys and their wrap around windows. What a great find, I hope you have many happy travels in it!

Don't worry, we have enough broken items on her already..... and she did not come with any kind of manual whatsoever. I'm so lost!!! I don't know how to work anything on her. A/C works, but it's loud, not too many leaks. That's all I cared about at first. I'm going to try and figure her out one day... baby steps... baby steps....

Ginger Ale???? Puuuuuuulease!!!!!

Miller Lite and Jamisons for this family!!!!

See ya!

Do a search on "manual" and you'll find a lady who has repro's. you can buy for almost all models.

You may not be able to find a service manual but Secretarial Services should be able to get you a owners manual.

Bad news on the AC. Unless you want to pitch a working unit you will have to get used to it. The Armstrong units work great, but tend to be a bit loud. If properly maintained they are hard to kill. I know of no way to quiet them down short of turning it off.

Look at it this way. You will not be disturbud by the campers next to you singing songs late into the night. The AC creates a "white noise" that blocks out other noises quite well.

As to your issues/questions post away, and if possible include pictures. Many here have been down the road you are about to travel and it is much better to lean from someone else than have to figure it all out yourself.
