The air dryer on our motorhome is located R/H side aft of the back wheel on the out side of the chassis rail. I would expect you to have two air gauges as well, primary and secondary.

You should be getting at least 110 psi before the purge valve opens which you will hear. I would be looking for an air leak in the system.

Hello Martin I really thank you for your reply on the hunt for the air dryer I found the governor located on the frame rail and replaced it since look very old I drained a gallon of water of the tank too this model has air over hydraulic brakes air Is only for parking brake and suspension and I think that is the reason of the 70 psi system it looks like everything is functional now but it would be nice to hear from another 2003 owner otherwise I will call spartan again to find out.

Hi Mardel414,

That is interesting because my motorhome has air/hydraulic 4 wheel disc as well. Two tanks are located forward, one feeds the rear airbags and brakes, the other feeds the front airbags and brakes. I have two air gauges to monitor system pressure which typically runs 110psi gauge. Find out what make the chassis is i.e. Spartan, Freightliner etc. and download a manual.

Okay, I see that the chassis is made by Spartan according to your post. I may be able to help with a manual but need to know what model chassis you have.

Composting toilet install in a 1997 RexAir

Thought Iíd post pictures of my composting toilet install in case anyone was thinking of doing it. The plan is to be able to dry camp for longer periods since weíre usually limited by the grey water tank capacity. So now we should be able to use both tanks for grey water and stay out twice as long.
I used 7/8 ply for the base to clear the original black tank fittings. I connected the vent to the outside through the auxiliary shower under the sink since Iím really hesitant to put new holes in our rig. And I connected the vent fan to the 12V source in the lavitory switch panel on the front of the vanity.
So far itís working really well for us and weíve even gained some space in the bathroom now since this toilet sits back against the wall and seems to not take up as much space in front of the shower. Before we werenít able to open the shower door completely because the toilet was in the way but now it clears the toilet.

97 Aerbus 3650

We have owned our Rexhall for a little over a year. We have decided we are going to keep it and drive it until the "wheels fall off". Although I hope that is several years away...

Here are a few pictures of sub-floor rot replacement and new flooring going in.

We are setting up this thread as a repository for Rexhall pictures, and project discussions, as the first thread is growing long, and would be easy to lose continuity of a project in that thread.

So, show some pics, and tell us about your projects!

Thanks,
John
My Rose Air is a 2000 model, but VIN say 2001. It doesn't matter, I purchased it for it. We really, really love it. Had it for about two years and put 12,000 miles on it. No problems. As time allows, we are changing, altering, making it ours. I do not use the word "upgrade" because I believe it is an overused terms. Changing something does not necessarily mean it s an upgrade.

After I wash it, I will post some pictures.

Things on to do list:
Replace shelves with drawers.
Remove front pax side cabinet which housed analog TV, add freezer and digital TV.
Add more cameras.
Communication package (not cell phone based)
Winlink Express global radio email (https://winlink.org/WinlinkExpress)
Add digital engine monitoring (example Silverleaf)
Break out and add inverters.

That looks awesome! I keep talking about doing the same to our '97 Aerbus but I can't seem to get it done. Did you do all the way back to the bedroom and bathroom? How hard of a job was it to remove the old flooring and replace?

Thanks,
Terry

WOW! That looks REALLY good! I VERY much want to do the same thing to our 97 RexAir. (no slides)

I have a question..but before I ask, here's why..

We currently are living in our RV here in Spokane during the winter and have put skirting around it and are pretty toasty warm, BUT...the vinyl flooring was VERY cold to walk on. So we put down those interlocking foam mats from HD and BOOM! problem solved!

So..back to putting wood down...is there something MORE we could put down to help better insulate the floor other than the thin foam that typically goes down before the wood? And if so, would it have to be glued down?

Additionally, can something like this be used? Under-Floor Heating

Any help is greatly appreciated.
