Isn't that going to make it rather breezy while driving?

It's a shame you had to go to all that work. My Argosy came with an access panel.

They must have fired the guy who was doing the panels on the Argosys I haven't seen one in a 1979, 1984, 1987 and now the 1992

You needed to back to 1977. Here's a picture of the one in Peanut.

Hey Peter, did you ever figure out what that strange thing next to the steering column is? You thought it was connected to the cruise control.

Dan, still working on more pressing issues than some alien apparatus hidden away in some corner of this 350 . Sooner or later I will investigate further and take better pictures and hopefully can get some assistance from you guys to figure out what it is. It appears to be completely disabled. In the meantime, moving along with the polishing

Found the almost perfect connector from Black tank (3 3/4") to valve pipe (3 1/2").
Fermco P1056-33
When I first started to dig into Silicon man's (one of the PO's) latest attempt to fix a problem, I though that I may have to replace all the piping, since there seemed to be no suitable rubber fitting.
The I.D. of the P1056 is actually almost 3.5" and it is 4" long. I had to grind out the inside of one side and shorten it by 1/2" to make it work.

No, Sir. Don't believe everything Tommy is telling you. I always use my favorite plumbing sealer when required
Did I mentioned that I hate silicone ...
