Randy,
It is risky even giving that stuff to someone, it is still drug dealing. It should be properly disposed of by burning it, in small quantities

Hey Randy,

Clever post on your "Cheech and Chong up in smoke" post when your 95 burned. Maybe you missed another "bag" and it fell out on the engine/exhaust someplace!!!

Sounds like Randy's '95 was destined to be "Up In Smoke".

My BB has a 'bureau' across from the sofa that was installed by BB for the PO. I'll go take photos of it when I get back home later.

My coach was made near the end of the narrow body PT40's. It's called a Concept Coach in the paperwork and a couple of knowledgeable people have told me that there were six of them made for the 88 model year. It's not a one off special order, but here's the paperwork that was in the blue box.

I'm guessing from comments I've read here that the basement air conditioning system in my coach is atypical. I have only one port side storage bay (the forward one), and thermostat units throughout the coach that handle both heating and cooling. The coach also has (intake I think) central air vents above the aft portion of the sofa, and output at ankle height under the sofa, and on the wall footboards near the bed.

The system has been wired around, I believe, and the pilot switches for air conditioning override now controls three roof air conditioning units.

The PO said that the compressors failed on the basement units and rather than repair them at a total cost of 1300, they installed overhead units for 1100.

Edit:

Tough decision. Basement air would sure be nice. It's quiet and much more efficient. I also want that storage space.

Ok, so I figured out the components of my system and am ready to present this odd feature of my bird.

My 1985 PT40 came equipped with a computer controlled auto-level system for the hydraulic jacks. Here's the cover of the manual, and the control panel.






This to me seems like a very odd feature to invest in on a bird. Also, my bird has WAY more heaters than I expect to see - literally it has a 'cheater heater' every 8 feet or so, and central heating from the basement units.
