Parts for Land Yacht 26

Hi folks: I'm in the process of buying a used 2002 Land Yacht 26. It doesn't have a mark on it and seems to be a good buy. It does have a few little problems.
1. The catch on the sliding window over the dinette is broken.
2. The solar panel doesn't seem to work.
3. One of the 'strings' on the small bedroom window shade is broken.
Can one buy the parts and can one repair the shade?
Pretty trivial and the only things I can find wrong with the vehicle!
Thanks, Donald

repairs to l/y 26

if the string is broken, you can rethread it through the button at the bottom and retie it. if the button itself is broken, you can buy a generic replacement button from camping world so that it will be able to work. i am assuming that you are talking about the day/night shades. also, replacement solar panels are also available at camping world. try there web site, but a more knowledgeable airstream owner could probably give you better advice on the solar panel than i can. i just got back from a 3600 mile trip in my 33' land yacht, and my wife and i had a wonderful time. everything was great about it. more fun, and comfortable than i could have ever dreamed! can't wait for the next trip. plus, i averaged 10.2 miles to the gallon!

To restring the day/night shades, here is the diagram for the route the string takes:

I also posted this in the forum dealing with interior repairs.

I was able to buy suitable string at Walmart (in their sewing section), as well as a large blunt-nosed needle (called a wool needle). I have ordered new "tie down buttons" from United Shades in Elkhart IN, but for some I just used small angle brackets.

It takes about an hour to do a shade (for a newbee).

BTW, I got about 12-1/2mpg with my LY94 towing my VW with a tow dolly going from Ottawa Canada to Gettyburg PA, moving along at 65 mph. Oh, yes, my engine is the Cummins 5.9.

I am impressed with the milage you guys are getting. I just bought a 95 Land Yacht 33ft (454 gas) and can't wait to get it on the road and see what mpg I get. Of course, I have to get it running first..

Welcome to the forums.
What happened to such a relatively new coach that it is DOA?

It drove poorly on the way home, and I just thought it was in need of a tune up and had bad gas (had been sitting for months).

I did a major tune up, changed all the filters, Changed the oil over to Mobile 1, drained the gas & replaced with fresh, and after all that a valve cover knock suddenly appeared.

I just pulled the valve cover off, and thank goodness it was a rocker arm that was loose and shifted off the spring & rod. I have a mechanic friend coming over today to put it all back together for me, and hopefully we will be up and running smooth soon!
