So I posted a suggestion a few weeks ago about making a stickie for Land Yacht parts - some of which can be time consuming to find. I have spent more time finding stuff than actually installing stuff over the last month. The response was deafening... crickets...
In spite of my efforts, I still have about $700 worth of tie rod ends, A-arms, ball joints, timing chains, oil hoses, brake cables, brake hoses, radiator hoses, and a few other items that were supposed to fit - but are waiting for me to box up and return.
So with underwhelming feedback... I'm going to start it anyhow. This would have saved me tens of hours and hundreds of dollars in shipping to have good data. If anybody uses this to benefit, you owe me a beer.
And if I find someone elses info useful, I will gladly reciprocate...
I have no idea how to start this, so I'll just start with my most recent success, and keep adding until I run out of stuff I have done. Anyone else is more than welcome to participate. If you do, please try to follow the same format - Part Description, followed by year and model of your coach. There is a lot of identical parts through the years, but some tricky differences.
DASH ELECTRICAL SWITCHES - 96 LY30
I have never seen those goofy green/black/white lettering rocker switches anywhere else. Once you get one out of the dash and put on your magnifier glasses, it says DAV - Made in France;good luck with that. I never found a match on google.
However, if you use DAV 4769 (the 4769 was just barely legible on the switch I pulled out), it matches to these guys:
Multiple switch options, various colors, but limited lettering. They use some special process that they only do in large batches. They do have leftovers from making these for Airstream. You have to tell them what you want, and they check inventory. I was able to get Fan symbol, Air Horn lettering, Aux Lts, Spkear symbol, and blanks.
If you want to relocate or reconfigure switches, they have 2x2, 2x3, and 2x4 bezels available.
The switches are available in 6 or 8 different configurations. SPST, SPDT, DPDT, MOM ON, MOM OFF, etc.
Their business model is that you have to call them and request a pdf of bezels, switch configurations, and their master switch logo/ID lettering list; again, only select items are available, but you have to ask. For the blanks I got, I am going to try printing out a label on clear transparancy. I have the pdf's they sent on my computer at work, so next week I can try and attach the file to this post; but I don't know how to attach a pdf? My pics live on Photobucket (until I die or don't pay them...), but you cannot upload pdf's; so not sure how it will work. I'm open to ideas. I would think the site should have a file hosting area with links?
Here is what the stuff looks like; matches perfect:
