Doing a few things, mostly lights, checking out all the systems and some minor modifications to the sewer system.Biggest thing we are working on is the generator. Starts and runs fine but won't start the a/c.

Yes, it does!! Thumbs Up All four of them. And it came with a Gear Vendors with all electrical connections and instructions. All I have to do is install it. And new coil springs and air bags on the front and 6 almost new tires.

Just ordered new brushes and springs and a Slip Stick to clean the rings. Tere is doing some work on lights and the heater blower motor.

So, when's the next gtg?

Congratulations!!! Love to see our old Baby Barth in good hands and nice to continue with its story.
Might have to come and visit Big Grin
We have still have the new clearance lights for the top front if you would like them. Found them in our shed. Only changed one years ago.
Have fun, hope to see you at the next GTG

ooh Gear Vendors too. Deja Vu. Good luck with the coach. I have been working on insulation in the side panels. Changed the oil. Working on floor repair in holding tank bay.

This is the first fall I did not bring the coach to my diesel service guys. In the past 3 years I've had them work on exhaust manifold, starter, all four air suspension bags, brakes all four, axle seals all four, fan motor replaced, drag link and alignment. This year I only need oil changed and fuel filters changed, and grease job.

I will be taking it south to Florida in late October. (ie winterizing the coach!) We are heading to UP to visit Dad tomorrow for a few days.

Good luck with the coach Jim. Hope to see you at your next GTG cheers

Seen you found the fuses. I would like to give a little history to this Barth, it's special. Mr Beard and his wife owned a 1978 Barth, towing their sailboat and VW Beetle cabriolet. They liked it so much, that in 1989 they ordered the exact same interior incl dashboard, cabinets and floorplan as the 1978. Cherrywood cabinets, L shaped dinette. The fabric (kind if a corderoy material) for the upholstery was selected by Mrs Beard and she also had a whole roll of the material as a spare (in case they ever needed to fix it).

It also had the woven fabric roll down blinds from the 70s. It was like brand new looking inside when we got it. They took good care of it.
Sadly they sold it because if declining health of his wife.
We always got compliments.

I remember it had 2 electric fans to cool the engine compartment. My 78 has one in front of the radiator and it never gets warmer than it's supposed to. The Euro just had the clutch fan and would run pretty warm in anything other than optimum conditions. I wonder if those were part of the build plan.

Doris and Danny, thanks for the history. Marvin and Doris and then Jerry Davis did a great job of keeping the interior and exterior very nice. Tere and I, mostly Tere, will now continue to keep it absolutely original. Tere is working on some electrical gremlins and I'm working on the generator. Marvin and Doris had to replace the water pump, clutch fan, and radiator--thank you very much!! ROTFLMAO. Danny, were the two fans in front of the radiator? We've only driven it 100 miles or so and the fan clutch did a fine job. It was a relatively cool day, though. One of the great things about this coach is that we don't have to do a thing to the exterior or interior. And the tires are almost new. So, we can focus on the mechanical side of things. Installing the Gear Vendors will be one project. New shocks are probably in order. Then, we're thinking of installing a new a/c system, but it would be of modern design. Vintage Air makes all the parts and we could use the existing outlets so that's sort of fun. I'm debating on whether to take all the smog stuff off. Would like some advice there. I believe the headers are original and until they leak, I'm not going to do anything. We'll also switch the battery isolator for a battery separator. We'll do some work on the j channels that hold up the lower compartments. They need a scraping and fresh coat of chassis saver. Best of all, it lives in a insulated garage so working on it during bad weather is no problem.

Would love to have those clearance lights. But if Tere gets on the roof, I'm going to get a harness for her. Last time she worked on a rv roof(a Dynamax we bought to sell), she fell off and broke and dislocated her right foot. No more of that Ooops

It was brutal. 10 at night, rain, me 50 feet from the garage with ear phones on, Tere dragging herself through the grass to the porch, police, ambulances, lots of drugs. But she is good to go now. A tough gal
