New guy on board with Argosy 24

Hello all and thanks for the opportunity to be able to share info on our about to be delivered 1973 24' Argosy.
Hopefully it will arrive today weather permitting.

My name is Ron, I'm retired and my son and I are going to try to get all the systems working in the next week or two. We were told by the previous owner that it was ready to go but you know how that is...

I'll post a few pics once I get familiar with the site...

Thanks again..

Ron in VT

You can purchase a "reproduction" of the original manual from Airstream's store at this link. While there isn't a specific Argosy shop manual as far as I know, the Airstream shop manual for the same Vintage coach is very close in terms of methods of repair - - Airstream also offers reproductions of the shop manuals at this link.

Good luck with your Argosy!

Kevin

Thanks Kevin
Got into it a little yesterday. I guess I will start out by hooking up a deep cycle battery and plugging the power cord into a 120 outlet to see what works if anything.
