  1. Owner's Manual Needed: 1978 Dolphin

    This place has manuals for many of the appliances but don't know how much it covers for your older ones http://bryantrv.com/docs.html You could also try the Toyota Chinook site on yahoo because the Chinooks were all 79 and earlier. I think they have some appliance manuals in their files section https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/toyotachinook/info Linda S
  2. 1988 Shasta Revere Camper

    Nice upholstery on those chairs. Looks to be newer cause it's a more modern pattern. Upholstery is expensive so if they did that I'm guessing they took pretty good care of the rest of it Linda S
  3. Painting on fabric can be done but it often means you still have stains, just a different color. Best case is to replace the headliner. Headliner is also a good material to replace the old shag in the back wall too. Under that carpet is the raw fiberglass and no insulation. Headliner has a foam backing that will give you some needed insulation. They make special spray glue just for headliner. Practice on something else first. Cover everything it might come in contact with. Linda S
  4. Sunrader Fiberglass Maintenance

    The Barkeepers Friend does a great job of smoothing down those loose fibers so the Zep can really give it a great shine. Linda S
  5. Mystery wire in Sunrader

    Yes that is exactly where my propane alarm is on my 18ft Sunrader. Don't know what's available now but it's a good time to add a CO detector to that. This seems like a very good price on a well known brand.

    Maybe you should just show us a pic of your mystery wire. Linda S

  8. How to change lightbulb?

    I hate bright white light so I was really worried about buying the LED's but my friend Gail recommended these. Love them. Warm and easy on the eyes but more than enough light. I read a lot so important https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0148ICY2Q/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 These are the covers I bought. A little different than the old ones so I just bought enough to replace them all. Had to notch them a little more but super easy. I fact I didn't even do them all. Most fit tight enough without it. https://www.ebay.com/i/331395139845?chn=ps&dispctrl=1 Linda S
  9. How to change lightbulb?

    Gently push the bulb in and turn is how to remove them. I replaced mine with leds and they are way cooler than original bulbs. New covers are available with slight modification Linda S
  10. Darn I thought I responded to this earlier. Nissan introduced the V6 in 1986 and a half. Mine is one of the first Nissan duallies ever made and it was built January of 1986. So figure by the time it got to the US it was several months later that year. I was originally told that only 8 Nissan Sunraders with the V6 were ever built by someone with close ties to the plant in Vallejo Ca. Well I've seen at least another 20 since then. I do believe the final number to be not much more, maybe 25? The last was an 89 Sunrader built on a 1988 chassis which was the last year for the Nissan duallies. All of the Nissan V6 Sunraders were shorty models. Several other companies used that chassis though. I have seen Odyssey's and a couple Four Seasons motorhomes with a Nissan V6 chassis ad they were full sized. The last Nissan Sunrader ever made was for sale recently in northern Cal, $24,500. Didn't sell that I know of and ad expired Linda S
  11. Not a lot of response. I don't know anyone in the Oxnard area and truth is I don't know a mechanic who has the time to chat about what he or she does. Life costs money and their time at work needs to be about working, not showing you how to be a home mechanic. I'm lucky enough to have a son-in-law mechanic but even he gets tired of answering my stupid questions. Lots of the mechanical stuff I've done has just been winging it and hoping for the best. The members here are usually always up for questions but some stuff is hard to explain online. Linda S
  12. The link Derek gave you has a post by "Waiter" a former moderator here and a very experienced Toyota camper guy. His 1988 Dolphin had the T9 bags and yours probably does too. Take a picture and show us might help. Also Waiter gives some tips about the bolt in the mounting attachments. Follow them Linda S
  13. The perfect time is now.

    So sorry for your loss. Hitting the road is exactly what your wife would want for you. So many things to see and experience out there and great people to meet. Linda S
  14. We have a search function on the site where you can look for answers about Nissans. Of course they are way rarer than the Toyota RV's and this site is focused on Toyota's but there are plenty of Nissan questions from the past. http://toyotamotorhome.org/forums/index.php?/search/ You can also try other Nissan clubs online for engine stuff and ask the camper stuff here because they are the same. I do own a Nissan Sunrader but it's a V6 and I have never owned a 4 cylinder Nissan. Linda S
