A/S B190 Question and for sale

Hello all !!

Used to cruise the old B190 chat site often and bought a 1998 of my own in spring of 07.

Question. Had the van winterized at an RV shop, and recently drained all the antifreeze. I do not know how to get the hot water tank going again. As far as I know the RV shop by-passed the hot water tank so as not to fill it w/ anti-freeze. There must be some sort of by-pass switch near the hot water heater.

For Sale. Building a new house this summer. Must sell my 1998 B190. Has all the trimmings in the van. Fully contained. Great condition all around. 76900 miles. Had the 65000 mile service including new tires, Monroe RV shocks, Super duty Air Lift airbags, new roof top AC cover. Always RV shop, Ford dealership, auto shop serviced since I owned it.

Asking $19500. Brand new (never used) Class B-Van AquaShed cover included. Van is in southern NJ.

No bypass on my 95... post your question to:

B190 Enthusiasts

Bypass may have been added by 98.

Otherwise just drain and flush with fresh water.

Post your "for sale" there as well.

Good luck.

Usually they are mounted on the back of the water heater - you should be able to see the hose going from the cold inlet to the hot. There should be valves you have to turn to open up flow to the water heater again.
