Anybody ever change their front coil spring air bags ??? The directions that come with them are really good for a fire starter ! LOL, just finished them last night. Also got the tag axle brakes done as well as the new polished brass pop-up shower drain. Waiting on Inland supply to furnish all new window gaskets....getting down to the nitty gritty now on the 2014-2015 list, will do the rear main seal and the rear air bags when i get the coach on the lift in April.

Finished the front coil spring air bags and new air lines. Finished the new polished brass pop-up shower drain and trap. All new tag axle brakes and shocks on. Finished generator wiring so I can unplug in the generator compartment and run a 50 amp cord into it if I'm at a campground that had 50 amp service. If not, new 30 amp power cord reel will work. Just need to figure out how the generator powers the rear AC automatically, so far I can only get the front or rear to work by using the switch in the overhead panel. The airstream owners manual says that the rear AC works automatically when the generator is running. I will finish up the new TV and RG6 cable installation now. Waiting for all new window felts/wipers, and seals from Inland RV.Click image for larger version

Bobmiller1,

You have a month and a half. Plenty of time to get her in 'functional' condition. Just think how neat it would be to get all the motor homes lined up and get pictures taken. :-D

Did you take the front springs out of the MH to install the air bags?

So I finished replacing the two solar dome covers on Sunday as well as running all new RG6 and HDMI cables fore and aft. Still waiting on Inland for the million feet of Fuzzy (Schlegel) ??? And related seals for the 10 windows that need to be done. I will definitely not make the April trip to Colorado...went to school in Durango, would love to travel back there someday. I am hoping to do a performance run late April as a shakedown cruise. Going to remove the in-motion satellite from the 390XL and put it on the 325LE this weekend.Click image for larger version

They are from Chevy pickups of same era. You can find them on such sites as lmctruck.com


Sent from my iPad using Airstream Forums. Take one off so you can see the shape of the gasket to match it up.

The GM Part # is 5959160 4. I took mine to two different GM dealers and the parts counter guys both assured me that that was not a GM part. I finally found one on e-bay and later found that I could get all I wanted from GM Parts Direct.

alright, so my window suppliescame from Inland, it took me 2 hours to get the first sliding window apart...a little help needed here. the tiny phillip head screws break easy, the ones that hold the fixed forward one in place. they will be replaced with stainless ones. my question is that it is impossible to remove the fuzzy schengel without removal of the fixed window. now that the window has been removed i noticed that the fuzzy schengel does not go all the way around the window, it stops about 12" from the bottom on the right vertical support and also does not extend past the forward weep hole cover on the horizontal bottom support. anybody that has replaced them will know what I am trying to discribe. also noe the screen or the sliding window will not clear the tracks to be removed, I beleive this is due to the hard plastic grey tracks that the window and screen slide on...they are held in by rivets one on either side.

Alright, I removed the upper and lower hard grey plastic slider tracks, they are held in with a number 4 Phillips screw on either end. Now both the windows and screen come out easily, I still cannot figure out why the fuzzy u shaped moulding that the window slides in does not go all the way around. I am having the screens re-screened one at a time. I want to do this right and it appears that doing all the windows is going to be very labor intensive. I don't think you could pay me enough money to do this job for someone else, but being that it is for me and the next owner it is well worth it. I have to break up the monotony by doing other tasks in between the windows. This weekend I will be working both Saturday and Sunday, going to attempt to remove the forward inner curbside panel so I can replace the door hinge tapered bolts and nuts, they are loose and need to be repaired.

I have now removed all of the right side windows, the first one kicked my butt, there's the learning curve...I have a call into Andy to check the placement of the fuzzy trim before re installation. Also took the entry door framework apart to get to the hinge bolts, repair the electric deadbolt etc. Did I mention I repaired the doorbell as well...a bonus, sounds pretty cool. Replaced the screen on top of the black water vent pipe and finished the toilet power vent replacement.Click image for larger version
