I have no idea what they are for. The Con. water just runs out the back of my unit directly off the roof.

Default Re: Xplorer Fans?

Greetings from central Illinois!
I feel fortunate to have found this site and this forum. We have been rv'ers for many years, having had 3 popups and one small 5th wheel. We got our Xplorer a couple years ago in an estate sale. It's a 1988 Model 222, Xtra Van in very, very good condition all around and only 65k miles. Although it had set for awhile and needed some TLC, we got a bargain. I paid their asking price, but it was really low. We love it- no more hooking/unhooking etc., just light the fire and go.
I'm only the second owner and I have every scrap of paper ever generated- every bit of work done, right down to all the oil changes! I have the owners manuals- the Dodge truck and the rv, also drawings and wiring diagrams. Sounds like I got it all, BUT, not quite. There's one thing I can't find out about in all the stuff I got. It's an air ride shock or suspension system that has two air pressure valves in the back bumper, one on either side of the license plate. I have no information and absolutely no experience with any sort of air ride. Can anyone tell me how to find out, or would you know how much air pressure this system might need, minimum and maximum. Because I have nothing on this, I hesitate to pressurize the system (with my luck I might over pressurize it and blow it up). I put a tire guage on the valves and got nothing on one side and next to nothing on the other. Thanks for any help

Received in an email from Walt:

Quote:
If they are Firestone air bags he can go up to 90 Lbs depending on the load and the minimum is to just keep air in the bags.
and

Quote:
In storage use about 80 lbs to keep the weight off the springs , and if you lift the unit by the frame let the air out of the air bags.

Have a 1975 Xplorer Class B Short Body. Has the Chrysler 318 V-8. Has been repainted and garaged most years
I've owned it. I believe from my research that Frank Inds built these Short Body Class B's for only 2 or 3 years....
possibly some in 1974 also "75" and the last in 1976. Does anyone have additional info and pictures??? The chrome"Xplorer" emblems that were on the front doors are long gone. Would like to know where I might buy replacements??? I'll appreciate any info. This "75" is a good "runner" ..last trip was to Glacier Mont. from Deleware.
No real issues or problems to report...tho the name Motor Coach is a "stretch" fot this 2-3 person vehicle. Hope
this post stimulates some discussion about these older Frank Ind Class B's.
