Air pressure guage

Bob,

Are you installing a new air pressure gauge on the dash or are you still using the one in the glove box (not the most convenient place to monitor)?

Also, did you replace the air pressure control switch on the air compressor? If so, what did you use?

Never had one in the glovebox, LOL.....I donít know why anyone would mount one there. Check out the previous pictures, youíll see the new one in the instrument panel. As far as the switch goes.....thereís nothing wrong with it. Regards, Bob

Itís kind of cool to see everything coming together for the kitchen counter project. The 370LE features the longest counter available in any of the Classic motor homes. At 97Ē long we have basically packed 2 pounds of olives into a 1 pound bag. I wish Tony were still around to see this, we talked about it and I used his fresh water design and incorporated it into the final design. Iíll be using 2 , 5 gallon jugs for the fresh water supply, the Fisher/Payless dishwasher , 2 burner Italian surface mount gas stove , and 33Ē stainless farm sink all fit. In the picture you will see my cabinet guy standing next to the face frame which is now all laid out. We are also incorporating 2 slide out cutting boards into the counter top which will be hidden. All cabinet doors and drawers will have soft close features which I donít even have in my house. More dashboard pictures over the weekend. Regards, Bob Click image for larger version

Final fitment of the dash parts is done. The dash folds out on a piano hinge to access parts if necessary. Iíll re-install the stereo/back up camera next week. I figure another week on the wiring and I should be good to go for an engine start up.Click image for larger version

The dashboard work is painfully slow, doesnít show much progress because every feature takes a long time. Well, the piano hinge is installed and access is good. Climate control head had to go in first because the is recessed into the wood. Moving forward and getting ready to start the killer wiring set up. Regards, BobClick image for larger version

The glovebox is kicking my ass.....3 hours into it so far and Iím still not satisfied ! I hope the 370LE starts when Iím done with the wiring. I think Iím starting to lose my mind.....work is slowing down, I donít know what to believe on the news. I spent some time last night with the cabinet guys, heís in the same building Iím in at work , the panels are all done. Should start coming together this weekend. Iím going to try and put a good dent in the dash wiring this weekend. Iíll have 2 full days......if my brain can hold up. Regards, BobClick image for larger version

Iím glad I found the Airstream Life a few years ago. It has given me the social interaction I really enjoy. My good friend Charly (Streamquest) has come over for the weekend so we could spend some time together doing what we really enjoy. Itís easy to maintain social distancing while working on a 370LE cause theyíre so long. Although I am still busy with work (Snap-On) we are an essential business, we keep America moving both in Industry and the private sector. While celebrating our 100 th anniversary this year in business we are one of the last manufacturers of American made quality tools, which America demands for keeping us moving. Other resellers of tools made in various parts of the Orient are now starting to sit idle because of lack of demand. Charly and I both own probably 2 of the most cared for 370LEís left in existence of the 33 that were manufactured. He replaced all of my lower belt moulding yesterday while I was inside working on the dash. Today my stereo guy Richie will be coming over to do a few mods to my ceiling mounted back up camera/stereo/nav unit. Charly has a few questions for him as well. Later this afternoon we will be visiting the wood shop to check on the kitchen progress. Regards, Bob

The weekends I spend with Charly which are few and far between seem to go by like that.....we got a lot of work done. The belt line is all done, Charly was able to re-align all of the end caps do it seems like an endless flow from front to rear....he does awesome work ! My stereo guy, Richie showed up, he showed Charly how to hook up the new rear back up camera using the existing wiring thatís in the 370LE. I have the glovebox now re-installed along with the transmission computer. Still moving forward, Regards, Bob Click image for larger version

So I was able to obtain the ďun-obtainable ď. It took me quite awhile to find the factory pigtails that connect to the new climate control unit in the dash. Getting rid of the original cable operated (Chrysler) heater control valve which never completely closed off the flow of hot antifreeze to the heater core, which killed any kind of air conditioning . The new electric heater control valve uses the potentiometer in the new control head but has very small micro connectors. Almost impossible to make up. In any event , thatís done. Every new circuit that I am changing or creating has its own 30 amp fuse protected relay, thus saving the switches, which only turn the relays on and off. Some pictures of where Iím at right now. Also Cooperstown called me to tell me they will be open May 15, so Memorial Day is a go. Certain restrictions will apply, no social gathering, no pavilion, no pool, no game room, no bathrooms or showers ! Perfect, I never use them anyway.......I should pretty much have the place to myself ! LMAO! Regards, BobClick image for larger version

You are replacing the cable operated coolant valve that controls the
flow to the dash heater core with an electric valve? I would love to
see pictures if possible.


Thanks,
Pete.

Heater control valve

What heater control valve did you use? Do you have a picture of it installed? I may have missed that in an earlier post.

Iím still playing the role of ďEdward ScissorhandsĒ inside the dashboard....Iím doing the final ďcutĒ. As I install a new circuit and test it, Iím removing the old one. I lost the wire that feeds the front and rear ICC lights as I couldnít get them to work after I installed the new parking light switch/relay as well as the side marker lights. Thank goodness for my good friend Charly (Streamquest). Knowing someone that has the identical model is a sure help. I gave him most of the old dashboard parts, he has his apart as well and he was able to trace the ICC lights out to a module which I had removed and gave to him.....LOL. I can still hook up an interrupter switch if I want to use that feature......but itís pretty useless to me. Iíve got the climate control all hooked up the way I want it. Iím using 5 relays so Iím not passing any current through the new climate control head. I now have 4 true fan speeds....low, medium 1, medium 2, and high. I also am using the 5th relay for the magnetic coil on the AC compressor. On a side note Martin (Asellers) contacted me and he is selling his really clean 360 (95),I really want it and have the money, but I have to sell the 2007 396XL, or the 1989 325LE first.....I have no room in the shop for a 5th Airstream and itís not staying outside. The 2005 34í limited SO is not for sale. Regards, Bob
