A new air tank to replace the rusting one that keeps rust in the drain valve and check valve leaking!

This year at Alumapalooza, Airstream dug out a bunch of stuff they had laying around that were used on our motorhomes to sell. I saw they had the Air horns we have new in the box with all the hoses and fittings for $100. I met a guy there that used to work for Airstream and he had 3new energenius he wanted to sell.

Thanks to Dan's post about LEDs tail lights for his motorhome from LED4RV I found that he could provide a set for the my Argosy which only has two lights per side instead of three like the Classic motorhomes. Price was reasonable and it's a complete kit. Also picked up a replacement porch light. My Argosy doesn't have a porch light like any of the other Airstream motorhomes so I bought an LED version to replace it.

There are a couple of sellers on ebay that are having a price war against each other. Cost delivered for the distributor was $48.50. Even better is it will accept OEM replacement parts if needed.

The brown truck brought me a fuel pressure gauge today. I had to modify the banjo bolt on the filter housing for the sending unit. Wired it up for a test and it works. Showing 15 psi at idle and 13 at WOT.

I'm not a gauge junky but adding EGT, Boost, And fuel pressure help avoid problems down the road. Low lift pump pressure from restriction, plugged filters, a failing lift pump can damage a $1200 high pressure pump.

When I put the banks system in I ran a 3/4" Sealtite flexible conduit from the engine compartment to the dash.

Now THAT is an outstanding idea! I'm going to have to keep that idea in mind when it comes time to start re-assembling the dash area of my Argosy!

ID:	193627Okay guys, so this isn't an engine part or even some neat electrical stuff, but while camping this past weekend near the Canadian boarder, we spotted this percolator at an antique shop. Now I can have some really good coffee when camping in the wild and the polished aluminum pot felt like it belonged in the Airstream.

I think I did good here...
I heard that the windshield gasket for the Classic was/is "Out of Stock" at Airstream, with no idea when they would get more...
Mine is old and getting worse, and I was worried that when I replace the windshield glasses, I would have to reuse the old one...
Until last week when I spotted one on Ebay.... seller says he bought it a couple of years back and never used it...
It arrived today, and looks like new, fresh and flexible.
I am happy... if its the right one!
