Lots of different types of insulation panels that resemble asbestos were made. Fibers of all kinds. Asbestos was outlawed to use in construction in 1978 I believe. Testing is the only way to know for sure. Labs all over the country. Should be one local.

In my bus there was also asbestos sandwiched between the plywood and sheet steel under the head of the bed/closet over the engine. You'd never know it was there unless you pulled up all the plywood. I've had pretty much everything else apart in mine and those are the only two places. I wouldn't worry about it.

Found a couple sheets top of LP heaters under the road side bunk and couch in the 31', put them back as found.
Back in the day we used pure asbestos to pack the solder bath bearings on can making machines. Cool stuff, mix it with water results in a workable shape that dries to hard consistency. Used make balls and throw it @ each other. In the 70's, think every ones still alive except the guys that were old then. Well not the guy that worked in the lead pit.

Yeah, I’m not too worried about it. It’s not going back in the bus though.

I tasted it and it was asbestos for sure. Don't forget your hazmat suit, respirator, and ventilation for the bus while removing that piece. Spray it down so no fibers become airborne. And then wrap it all up, tape up the double bagging, put it in a special dumpster that locks down tight. Then watch the dumpster get dumped right on top of everything else at the landfill.

My 82FC was sold new in California. Hmmm.
No nameplate w/ original owner's name.
What are the odds though. Either way, Stuff like that doesn't freak me out.

They put it in a different hole at the dump, I guess they don't, want it to breed with other trash.
