    1 ton axle upgrade

    The full float axle isn't any different in later years and your 85 has the same frame as my 86 that came with a full float so that manual should work fine for all the ale stuff. Work for the engine too cause they made the 22re for a long time. All the axles Toyota sent out for the recall were 90's axles and they were fitted to older trucks. One thing I want to mention. It looks like the wheels are 6 hand hold wheels. Do you know what year this axle came off of? If it has 6 holes in the rear wheels the drivers side is reverse thread. Only made in 1986. Not a deal breaker but need to know to get the wheels off without breaking studs. Linda S

    New bushings for sure. I hope you have a lift to work with. Trying to get enough ground clearance with jacks only could be a problem. The shackle bolts are often rusted in place and can be a real challenge working on your back.

    Thanks Derrick, I already checked your links tho and they are dead. I do have owners manual for both the rv and the Toyota truck and your rite it’s not much info in there. I am interested in the service manual for the truck tho its $50 on eBay.... I checked the link you sent Linda and it says it’s for an 88 to 95 Toyota truck. Will the config for my 85 be the same ? Thanks for the help everyone. I managed to find myself a one ton dually it’s on its way to me on Saturday from Oregon, including air bags. I plan to fit it on Sunday, is there anything I should consider replacing whilst doing the job I.e leaf spring bushings .. someone mentioned to me I would have to replace u bolts .. ? I’m pretty sure I don’t have to touch the ubolts since I bought the whole rear end. Any advice about the job would be appreciated. I’m not a mechanic but i’ll Give it a go. .

    Filling ASME propane tank

    Thanks again!

    Filling ASME propane tank

    The max SAFE capacity of a propane tank is 80%. So a "12 gallon" tank would be full at 9.6 gallons

    Filling ASME propane tank

    Thanks Fellas! Had an almost empty tank but took only 8.5 gallons of propane to fill it. Is that normal?

    No wheels. Yeh I felt that, I called him twice today and his receptionists just told me he will call back. I saw one at pick n pull last week for 200, I went home to check a few details since somebody had already pulled the diff off it and returned the next day to find out they had sent it to the crusher along with 6 wheels 😳 if only they knew.

    Did guy in Turlock have wheels cause you need them too. Dean in Napa is sometimes not real good at getting back to people. Keep trying. Going rate for the axle with wheels is about a grand so he wasn't out of the ball park. Never heard of a junk yard wanting old axle though Linda S

    Ok thanks for the info ! sounds like i should swerve that idea then. The guy in turlock wanted 800 inc trade in which is a bit much I thought. Just waiting for the guy in napa to get back to me.

    Source of Overhead Cab Leak Found

    I saw the same thing on my Sea Breeze 93. When I seal a window I normally use butyl tape and nothing else. because of the soft/flexible corners I also used caulk around the entire outside of the window frame. There were no signs of water intrusion and nothing rotten. There also was not anything to firm up the flex. I would guess some caulk and foam could be put in and trimmed?? Pressure testing of an RV can be done, either commercially or DIY, Google for info.

    Source of Overhead Cab Leak Found

    I HAVE A 92 WINNIE WARRIOR. YOUR DESCRIPTION OF THE AREA BEING "SOFT" INDICATES TO ME WOOD ROT OR DAMAGE BEHIND THE FIBERGLAS. IF THIS IS THE CASE, YOU MAY BE LOOKING AT A MAJOR REPAIR. ANOTHER POSSIBILITY IS THE FIBERGLAS HAS DELAMINATED, AND THERE IS A WAY TO FIX THAT WITH ADHESIVE. BEST OF LUCK. JOE FROM DOVER.

    You would need a driveshaft adapter to fit it to the differential and probably customizing length of your driveshaft. The wheels have different lug pattern and you would always have to use Nissan brake pads and parts. Harder to find than Toyota because not many were made. Try calling these guys. Parts 4 Less Auto Dismantling USA-CA(Turlock) Request_Quote 209-632-2600 their website says the have a dually axle from a 1991 Toyota. Oh just remembered. I was told that Advantage RV in Napa has several dually axles ,some of them brand new, for sale. These guys used to work at the Sunrader plant in Vallejo and they know their stuff. https://www.yellowpages.com/napa-ca/mip/advantage-rv-center-inc-17348616 Best possible option Linda S

    1 ton axle upgrade

    Last month I bought my first rv, a 1985 Toyota dolphin. i managed to get a really great price on a account that it has the 5 lug axle. For the past month I have been searching for a 6 lug in north California area. I have found a ff one ton close by from a Nissan Uhaul truck, the owner has two dolphins himself and tells me it will fit. I was wondering if any one can confirm if it will be a straight bolt in fit with no mods ? I’m not a mechanic but I’m considering taking on the job myself. Any advice or links to info about doing the work would also be appreciate. 🙏

    Filling ASME propane tank

    Yes that is how it works when it spits liquid propane close the bleeder No Smoking!

    Filling ASME propane tank

    Went to fill my tank today. 1986 Granville. The only way to get propane into the tank was to open the bleeder valve if that’s what it’s called. When the valve was open it expelled lots of propane while the tank was filling up! Strong smell! Finally liquid propane came out the valve indicating a full tank? I don’t remember having the valve expell propane before when opened. Is this normal?
  25. I have been perplexed by an on again / off again leak in my overhead cab area - specifically the front window (91 Toyota Winnebago). I have sealed and resealed all the lights, and have taken the window out twice and used butyl tape - also twice. The leak seems to get resolved, then some time later reappears. I checked and sealed the overhead hatch and looked for any small holes that may have been the source. The leak was definitely coming from above the window, but I could not find it - UNTIL YESTERDAY! In removing the excess butyl tape and looking to go around the window/fiberglass joint with some high quality silicon, I found that in the upper corner of the window on the outside, the fiberglass panel was "soft". With a little pressure, it would actually push in away from the front glass aluminum frame. I am assuming that while traveling, the force of the air, would eventually push enough to open up the area enough to create a leak source. I am assuming that whatever supported the fiberglass panel, is not longer doing it's job, or may be non-existent in the curve of the upper window area. I have fixed it temporarily, but in the near future, I plan to remove the window again and use something to prevent the fiberglass panel from pushing in. I do not think that putting a lot of extra butyl tape in the area will be a long term fix. Has anyone encountered this problem, and if so, what would you suggest to use to support / reinforce this area. I thought about using some shims, or even cutting out a piece of wood to the proper thickness and matching radius as a support device for the frame to exert enough force to seal the butyl tape, but thought I would ask you folks about your experience. Thanks and safe travels.

    road noise mitigation

    Ya the sound deadening stuff works, but you still won't end up with a Rolls Royce cabin. The stuff comes as a deadener or as a oil can preventer. A full layer of Fat Mat acts as a deadener/reducer. There are several products like Fat Mat, just get the rubberized type and not the asphalt based stuff. The Lizard skin spray on stuff changes the vibration frequency of a large metal panel and prevents it from acting like a speaker and amplifying sound. You can get just 12" squares of the Fat Mat stuff and place it in side doors and around speakers and some random spots on the floor board and it will change the ting door close to a thunk. This place has both types... https://www.ebay.com/str/Deimos-Deals?_trksid=p2047675.l2563 On my 64 Hot Rod Chevelle I've used both, including the roof.

    road noise mitigation

    I'm about to install new speakers in my Sunrader shorty because the old ones are blown from 30+ years (and 196k miles) of use, and also because I've probably been playing my radio too loud to drown out the road noise. I'm also thinking of putting in a subwoofer so the speakers don't have to work so hard. But then I was talking to a friend about this, and he suggested that maybe I'm solving the wrong problem. Maybe I should do something about the road noise. Has anyone here done anything to mitigate road noise? I googled what folks have done for Toyota pickups, and there seems to be a lot of discussion and even an FAQ answer. Are the things folks do for pickups (e.g., Reflectix under the carpet or insulation for the hood, firewall and steering stem) sufficient? Does an RV need something else? As always, your insights are very much appreciated.
