  1. Linda you couldn't have explained why we do this any better. Darrel
  2. I'm wondering if there is anyone out there that has good or bad experience with DENTISTS in Los Algodones Mexico. I need some dental work done and my local dentist wants my RIGHT hand for the work. I have done some checking and the prices are about 70% less with equal quality. Looking for good and or bad dentists names. If you don't want to post on this web site would you message me. Darrel
  3. Lexan, replaced it 3 years ago with new seal. Does not leak. Don't know if it is scratched, don't look out of it. Darrel
  4. All engines with AC loose a certain amount of power when the AC is on. The 22r or 22re engine is very capable of being run with the AC on even being that it is a Toyota motorhome. On long hills if you must have as much speed as possible turn off the AC until you get to top of hill then turn it back on. A good operating system will freeze you out even with 90-100 degree weather. I kept it running with r-12 and it was original. My 1984 Dolphin put out colder air than my 2004 Tacoma. Darrel
  5. I used the AC on my 84 Dolphin all the time, well when it was hot. Even in Death Valley on that long climb out. Wife and I do not like being HOT, unless we instigated it. The same of the 94 Warrior. Have if fixed. Darrel
  6. I use my cruise all the time, all the way down to 30 MPH. Yes if using cruise and start to climb a hill or incline the transmission will shift out of OD. You take it out of cruise get to a speed you can maintain then put cruise back on, it will hold. 50,55, 45, you decide. If you have to shift into 2nd gear, which we do out west, I usually do not go over 45MPH and use the cruise. Mine holds very well. By the way my engine is a v6. Darrel
  7. Have thought about eliminating the window. We never use ours. Its covered with silver bubble wrap.
  8. I just removed the Kohler generator. Going to take it to a RV generator technician. Have already met with him. He checked out the generator while it was installed. It puts out about 5 volts, The field, windings, so forth check out good. Problem is in the rotor circuit board. It has to be removed from the bottom of the generator and repaired. Hope to deliver on Wednesday. Linda I will let you know whats-up. Darrel
  9. Have you tried jumping the starter solenoid? If the starter is good it will turn over the engine. Darrel
  10. My 1994 Warrior did have the head gasket special service recall campaign done. Don't recall when. Do not have the SSC campaign label affixed. Darrel
  11. My window frame is two sections, with two rivets on each side. When the window is installed the rivets are not visible. Darrel
  12. Jack, I may be able to help you. About 5-6 years ago I attended a Toyota rally in Quartzite, Tika organized it. I purchased a brand new "acu-gage" from a dealer. It is for a Sea Breeze by National RV. Never been installed. At the time I had a 1983 Dolphin and the gauge did not work, I was hoping this one could be a replacement, no. The date of production is 2/14/1991 model 102SEAb made by Larson Electronics Mfg, Fullerton, Ca U.S. Patent #' s 420 108, 4145927. Message me if your interested. I paid $17.95 for the gauge. I expect to make enough to retire for life, kidding. Darrel
  13. Ditto from me. You kept after it and prevailed. Darrel
