  1. Sweet. Sounds like the KYBs are the way to go. Thanks ya'll!
  2. I found these on RockAuto.com - perhaps a more economical solution... KYB KG5438 Gas-A-Just - Rear; Motorhome Chassis: https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=503769&cc=1277401 $28.79 (USD) KYB KG5458 Gas-A-Just - Front; Motorhome Chassis: https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=502354&cc=1277401 $32.79 (USD)
  3. ahhhh my mistake - thanks for clarifying, Derek!
  4. I'm still in research mode for new parts for my Sunrader, but from what I've found - the Bilstein shocks are roughly $75 (USD) for 2 front and $75 (USD) for 2 rear for a total of approximately $150 (USD). You can check out the specs here: Part Number: 24-184830 (for the front) https://www.bilstein.com/us/en/product-search-detail/?ItemId=7406410772806821571&YearId=7870876151048031973&MakeId=5340257925038368493&ModelId=7595639297119848055&SubModelId=6814392562014654615&DriveId=2300671334560941591&BodyId=4423663344221085859 Part Number: 24-002585 (for the rear) https://www.bilstein.com/us/en/product-search-detail/?ItemId=2110077393719183053&YearId=7870876151048031973&MakeId=5340257925038368493&ModelId=7595639297119848055&SubModelId=6814392562014654615&DriveId=2300671334560941591&BodyId=4423663344221085859
  5. Sweet. Appreciate the tips! I'll let ya'll know how it goes.
  6. Great tips to keep in mind, Donnie! Appreciate your input
  7. Oh awesome! Appreciate it, Derek!
  8. Morning!! Please see the attached pics of the state of my current windshield wipers on my 86 Sunrader. If you look closely, you can see that a previous owner installed windshield wipers that are actually too large for the windshield (in one of the pics you can see the right wiper goes over the windshield trim on the passenger side). Any idea what size wiper I should get to replace the current ones? Any particular brand/size ya'll recommend? In addition, the middle "arm" (not sure if thats the right term) of the wipers is all rusted. The little plastic piece closest to the hood looks fine - just those "arms" that look no good. Have any of ya'll had this problem? Any idea how to fix or replace? Thanks! Amy
  9. I use a Bialetti on the stove top to make my coffee in the mornings https://www.amazon.com/Bialetti-06800-stove-coffee-Aluminum/dp/B000CNY6UK/ref=asc_df_B000CNY6UK/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167136162413&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=11436548661657326986&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9061283&hvtargid=pla-285822544971&psc=1 And when I have people in town visiting, I break out the Pour Over Coffee Maker for them if they're not fans of espresso https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JJ1C5YN/ref=sspa_dk_detail_9?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B07JJ1C5YN&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUFKSlZMVjVCSTQ5TlQmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTA0ODYxMzUxQlFPSTNHOFlMN1hQJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTA5NDYzODkxWDZOTTAxWks0V0taJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfZGV0YWlsJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
  10. @Odyssey 4x4 I couldn't help myself and just bought it. 😁 Thanks for sharing it here!
  11. No, I know you did... Its just as the Sunrader manual you posted was a little sparse in terms of information (through no fault of your own obviously - that's just the way it is), I thought of the Odyssey manual which has much more info than the Sunrader manual does.
  12. Derek, Haha agreed! When I was bumming around on this site the other day, I saw that someone had linked to a Toyota Odyssey owner's manual. Do you think I could substitute that for a rough idea of what a Sunrader owner's manual should have been in terms of how the systems work/work together?
  13. Hi All! My 1986 Sunrader didn't come with any repair manuals so I was thinking about purchasing this - (1979 - 1995) Toyota Pick-Ups & 4Runner Haynes Repair Manual - https://haynes.com/en-us/toyota/pickup/1979-1995 - the online manual version because it comes with video tutorials. In addition, I also found this PDF while searching Google - 1985 Toyota Truck & 4-Runner Gasoline Repair Manual - http://htftp.offroadsz.com/marinhaker/programi/VSI4KO ZA TOYO/1985FSM_OCR.pdf. For my daily driver I currently have a 2003 Honda Pilot and have learned to do repairs/maintenance on it via YouTube and through the (2003 - 2008) Honda Pilot Haynes Repair Manual - https://haynes.com/en-us/honda/pilot/2003-2008 - the print version I picked up at a local Auto Zone. Are there any additional manuals to get that you think might be helpful? This is my first time owning an RV and as such I'm a little nervous as its going to be a bit of a learning curve for me. Thanks! Amy
  14. That’s a great point @fred heath
