  1. Hi, Darrel,

    Toy-Rig here. Suzanne and Ron, Parksville, Vancouver Island. Still planning on 'camping' in Toy-Rig this summer, maybe less due to health concerns.

    Woild be nice if you plan to come up here this year. Saw you finally made it to Alaska!

    sorry to hear about your brother!

    how is Gunn? Give her our regards.

    hope to hear from you soon.

    Oh,   By the way we have moved down off the hill and have a new phone.

    if you want, you can e-mail me at tuareg1936@icloud.com for details

    Spare tire relocating?

    I remounted my spare wheel to the original mounting place. Just behind the rear end using all the original parts. On either side of the frame is a rubber plug in the frame which I removed. I cut and shortened the original spare lowering rod and permanently affixed in place. The hook end at the lowering mechanism and the end that is squared off for the handle. Used a aluminum electrical plate on the side of the motorhome with the rod sticking out enough for the handle to slip on. Now I can lower and raise the spare wheel from the side of the motorhome. I do still have to crawl under the motorhome to retrieve the wheel. Never had a flat. Damn should not say that. When I get new tyres I have the best tire mounted as the spare. Darrel

    The perfect time is now.

    So sorry to hear of you loss.. This can be the inspiration for you to regain lost memories for you and your wife. Do it ,, she will be with you, ALWAYS. My brother passed away two years ago. He always wanted to do a road trip to Alaska but didn't. My parents always wanted to do a road trip to Alaska but didn't. This year I did that road trip to Alaska, and they were with me every second of the way. Darrel

    Looking for TV install location ideas.

    This was my solution to the TV, Computer, and phone cords. Now after a 41/2 month road trip I did not use the TV, why do I have it.
  6. I found a ready made bamboo cutting board that very nicely.

    Replacing oven

    I removed the cooktop-oven in my 84 Dolphin and installed a three burner cooktop, Made two drawers where the oven was. Both my wife and I liked it much better. Stopped a lot of noise and created storage. Thinking of doing the same in my 94 Warrior. We did not ever use the oven. Darrel

    Linda you couldn't have explained why we do this any better. Darrel
  11. 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

    Cruise Control

    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

    Overhang window replacement 1991 WW

    My window frame is two sections, with two rivets on each side. When the window is installed the rivets are not visible. Darrel

    I knew I had seen window seals somewhere. Check out www.all-rite.com and do a search of " window rubber seals ". Quite a selection including the design I have. Darrel
