There is some great info in this thread. I just bought a 1992 350LE. Anyone know where I can source the deadbolt lever that is inside the cabin? Mine is missing so I can currently only lock the door from the outside.

Airstream Supply, Out of doors mart, Vintage trailer supply or Inland RV. You are best to post queries to the Classic Motorhome thread.

Argosy 454 v-belts

I won't guarantee these belts will work on all Argosy's but they work fine on Peanut which is a 77 Argosy 454 with the original style of A/C compressor and original size alternator.

Gates 7630 - AC compressor belt
Gates 7405 - Power Steering pump belt
Gates 7460 - Alternator belt

If you're replacing all three belts then replace them in the following order:

Note: I would suggest getting all three belts in place before you do any tensioning.

1st belt - (7405) PS to Crank (Tension PS pump first using 1/2" ratchet connected to top of PS pump bracket)

2nd - (7630) A/C to PS to Crank to WP (Tension after PS pump has been tensioned, Tension via long screw on top of A/C compressor pump mount)

3rd - (7460) Alt to WP to Crank (Tension Alternator via top mounting bracket, Reminder: Lower alternator pivot bolt is accessible form underneath right front wheel well)

I'd highly recommend you always replace all three belts while you're in there.

Ignore the numbers on the diagram below. No sure what they are for but the layout of the belts is correct. Also ignore the smog pump, your Argosy shouldn't have one

This is a terrific resource, especially for a newbie like me. Can someone confirm that from 1993 to 1997, the Classic was renamed Land Yacht with a sloped nose etc but still retained the aluminum skin? In my search for an Airstream motor home, I had narrowed it down to a Land Yacht but was reluctant to deal with a fiberglass exterior. Have had some unfortunate experiences with delamination on a motor home. Those 5 years, 1993-1997 with aluminum skin would be my preference by far, even though the Workhorse chassis on later Lank Yachts was better. Thanks

The Land yacht was the fibreglass version of the Classic (aluminum) motorhome, built from 94-96. Only 24 or 27 of which were 5.9 Cummins powered rear pushers on a Spartan chassis. The rest, 454 powered P30 or 32 chassis's with a tag axle. No diesels had tag axles.

In the sticky on the Classis, there is this:

"in 1993 there was a major facelift, with a sleeker nose, and flush windows, and it became known as Land Yacht. It still featured the clearcoated aluminum exterior panels, and this model continued until 1997."
The Land Yacht I'm referring to has a radically slopped nose and I think most if not all are gas powered. To confuse us, Airstream also made a diesel pusher they called a Land Yacht with a much squarer nose. I'm asking if any of the radically sloped versions had aluminum siding?

Take a look at Fred's ViewRvs website.

In 1993 the Land Yacht came in 30, 33, 34 (fiberglass) and the Classic 36 (aluminium)....the aluminum version is normally referred to just as the the Classic

Don't know if this would interest anybody and be worth sticking into the sticky?

Rivet AC indicator light

Here is a clever solution to get your AC indicator light back on your instrument panel after replacing the old converter with a multi stage converter.
The adapter can just plug into the same outlet as the converter with 9V wire running to the original fuse.

Peter, good idea!

9v or 12v?

It wants 9V, I always thought it was supposed to be 9V AC, according to Andy you know who, but 9V DC works just fine.

That's interesting. I would have thought 12vdc would have been the voltage of choice for a trailer or motorhome.

Child seats

Has anyone ever put in seatbelts to hold child seats in their MH? We bought a 79 excella and are at a stand still until we can figure out how to anchor our 3 kids child seats in the dang thing! Any advice would be greatly appreciated

If your children are below the age of seating as an adult and require a child seat or booster seat , I strongly suggest you take another vehicle with you that can properly accomodate them; an Airstream motorhome of that vintage will not meet state laws on tethering child seats.

Crazy thing is they are available via eBay in the UK from a UK seller! ($30 is that a good price?)
