Another LPG part?

Was crawling around under my 345 yeaterday, and spotted this odd box on the streetside..
Its directly in front of the LPG tank, and I think it might be LPG related...

Definitely a GPS tracking system placed there by the man to keep an eye on you. Have there been a lot of "plumbing" and "electrician" vans parked down the street from your house every day for the past few weeks?

Sadly, if its on my Motorhome, they would not have had to drive too far to keep tabs on me....

I showed the pic to my mechanic, he thinks it's vacuum-related with a plastic check valve. It has that "someone has fooled with it before" look.

There are 2 of those check valves, one at each end...
There is also some type of electric valve and some wires goind to it... that look disconected..
I also see a pipe in the background that comes down from the drivers compartment... and it looks like it was attached to a T piece but maybe its snapped off...
Another pic, and I can see some words on the cover, but cant read them from the angle...
Now I am gonna have to go crawl under again!

Open the box, might be a pump, with electric wires disconnected. That pipe coming down from the drivers seat is the emergency toilet outlet. ;-)

Mike!
You(via your mechanic) win 2 points....
Its IS a Vacuum thingy...
But the plot thickens...

Here is a better Pics of it and its attached gubbins...
The clues on the Plastic body say:
Vari-flow Injected
Sensing Control

The pipe coming straight at you, is marked:
Maniforld Vacuum.

I chased that pipe, and it, AND the smaller the pipe that exits forward via the White valve, and the electric powered thingy go up into the engine bay.. where I lost it..
The pipe on the left/rearward exits and goes into a hard pipe that goes onto the Chassis rail, and into a hard pipe, that goes rearward where I lost it... Maybe to to gas tank?

Might have been a water injection system for the engine. They are used to cool the fuel charge when under load. Water injection was used in aircraft during WWII.

You maybe on to something Excella..
I will need to chase down where that rearward bound pipe goes...
If it ends up in the water tank area.. that would be interesting!

So, here is another one...
Up under the dash on the drivers side...
Black box labeled:
Uniden PC22..
There is a cable coming out of it and goes to a multipin plug visible on the lower edge of dash..
I know Uniden makes CB radio's but cannot find a Pc22.. plus there is no readout or dials..
Somewhere I saw a CB where it was all on the Microphone... Channel, and readout etc...

I think that is the factory CB radio. The units I have seen had all the controls and channel display on the microphone.

Really?
That would be cool...
I have searched the internet extensivly and cannot find any info on the PC22 unit, let alone a replacement Mic/handset/display...
I will post in the CB section see if anyone has any ideas.

What is this I found in my Airstream?

Greetings Keyair!

I had a Uniden Remote Mount CB radio in 1982. The radio was designed for remote mounting as a theft prevention measure. In my case, the receiver was mounted in the trunk of my 1982 Pontiac Bonneville, and the microphone with all of the built-in controls was hidden in the glovebox when it wasn't in use.

I sold the car in 1983 with the CB so I don't have any of the manuals or other materials regarding the radio any longer.

Good luck with your investigation!

Kevin

Thanks...
So, I posted in the CB section...

Guess what, LOL...
You know how bad this is gonna go when you try a Google Search for Uniden PC22...
About the fifth result is the post I did in the CB section of the Air Forum 30 mins ago!
