Re: 34XB freshwater tank

Dear KYAvion, I am in total agreement with your thought about replacing the tank. I am hoping that the company near me (Inca Products in Adelanto, CA) can help. I plan to attempt to remove the old fresh water tank through the bottom of the trailer. I already have jacked up the Avion more and have it...

1989 34XB Main Awning (about 21')

My recent purchase of 1989 34XB understood that I'd need to do some fixing. I discovered that the main awning fabric was in bad shape. I ordered new SunWave Awning Fabric (SKU:62420 ASIN: B00D393944 Item ID: 27153984401666.) I had some experience replacing a 16' awning fabric on my previous 1995 Ter...

Yikes! Discovered prior owner had used some sort of "Flex Seal" type stuff to fix leak on fresh H2O tank. Now it is beyond repair. I need to remove fresh tank.

How to post photos

Thank you for the feedback and tips about being a bit more specific with my posts. Makes sense. I have been attempting to post my images (jpeg) files.

Re: Tank supports

I am interested in how you went forward and what your decisions resulted in. In my limited uncovering of the belly of my Avion I see that the cross members (T type steel reinforcements from side to sidethat support the "chip board" plywood) are rusted a lot. I don't feel good about not re-enforcing ...

Re: 34XB freshwater tank

1/11/18 Thanks for the response KYAvion. I will post some photos. (OOPS, just attempted but error stated file too large. I will look into adding images later.) I knew that the fresh water tank had a leak before I purchased it. I'm not afraid to try my hand at most fix-it projects thanks to YouTube. ...

Solar Panel Installation

I wanted to say hello to this forum. I am the third owner of a vintage 1988 34 XB basement model. The previous two owners have kept this coach in remarkably good condition. Look for my future questions about how to secure solar panels to roof, removing/upgrading the charge /converter (How in the hec...
