The new water tank and switches were delivered today. Just waiting for the galley flooring to come in and then it is another trip up north to do the final interior work. We are off to Yosemite next month so its got to get done!

The new fresh water tank is in and hooked up. I also pulled the cab carpet today. Floor is in good shape except for a small area in the upper right hand corner.

That's the dash layout I like the most. The Argosy dash is horrible, no instrumentation to speak of and the 1986 345 dash sucks because you can't see the speedometer or tach while driving

Looking good Dean!

Thanks Steve. I don't know if it was '83 or '84 that they made some big changes, but definitely '84 has a different dash.

Thanks Brad. I really like this dash as well. I can see the tach and speedo pretty well while driving. At one point I was thinking of redoing the instrument cluster, but after painting the dash and cleaning it all up, I really like this dash.

I'm sure glad I removed the driver's seat just to put in new toggle switches on the dash. Sure made it a lot easier!

Dean, I like those lights that indicate whether the steps are up and the door is closed. Did those come with the coach or did you or your Dad add them?

They are factory and they do work! When I'm climbing a long grade and the engine vacuum drops to nothing, the step light comes on as I'm sure the step is being deployed...step operates on engine vacuum. I might install a vacuum canister by the step sometime in the future.

There is also a push button just above the two lights. For five years I never knew what it did. I pressed it and nothing. About a month ago I had the door closed and pushed the button...the dead bolt on the door closed! Amazing!

I'm sure the people following you are wondering why your steps are coming out! I never thought to check if the steps would pop out on our 310 when pulling long grades. I'll never know now since I've replaced the vacuum steps with electric ones.

Glad your actuator still works. The one on the 310 was buggered up when Airstream ran a screw into the actuator knuckle when they installed the fridge

Any other unknown buttons?

I'm making some progress but it's slow progress. Water tank is in. I added an extra fill line to fill from city water. Carpet is in on driver's side.

I like that extra fill line! Was the port installed by the tank manufacturer or did you do it yourself? If you did it would you mind sharing the details?

The tank manufacturer installed it at my request along with the water level studs/sensors all at no extra charge.

That's cool. Definitely a worth while mod.
