Default Power Watch AC Gauge/ meter

My '79 XV has two AC meters in the galley. Usually they show the AC current coming to and available to the bus. One now has no reading but both 110 circuits off the main are fine and every outlet etc has power. I assume the meter is bad. As a bonus the meter also has buttons which are supposed to show if polarity is correct, but these have never worked. Any idea where I can find another meter to match?

Thanks!

Hi Randy,And Carol,
Good to hear from you. First thing I checked was the mains in and out with multi meter.
All beakers have power both sides so no breaker issues. Finally I pulled the "Power Watch" and it has power...it just don't show it!

The original bags were NLA. I found some that were to replace that Firestone part# from Goodyear but they had different mounting points soooo.....get out the saw and welder! Working great now!
The hardest part was getting the old bags out. It was impossible to get wrenches into the area; like they put the body over the thing after it was assembled. I had to torch some pretty big holes but I added metal to reinforce.
I'm sure the shocks need replacement but I got done what I needed to do at Hippy's with the use of the big jacks and stands.
