    1992 Warrior - roof replacement? or repair? Cost

    i have a warrior, if the leak is "new" , just fix the leak. New seals , gaskets etc. If the wood in the roof has rotted, all bets off. Very hard to repair. Since these campers have a sheet of tin covering the roof, I do not recommend any of the coatings. They cover up and can aggravate moisture. Lap sealant is used on the seals on the roof

    18 MPG Fully Loaded?

    I am on my 2nd - first was a 92 spirit & now a 93 warrior. the 92 averaged 14-15 under ideal conditions. the warrior averages 14 under ideal conditions. In the summer with ac on driving about 60 I closer to 13. A lot less creeping around in the mountains. 18? NO WAY! PS: I average over 1000's of miles. I am good at math.

    Ecu help

    Curious, how did you conclude that you have an ECU problem?

    New to group and......

    be cautious about low priced toys - they show up all over - put on your best "scam prevention" hat - DO NOT WIRE MONEY - do not but anything sight unseen.

    Repairing small cracks

    need pics - I find "Marine Tex" works well on my Winnebago Warrior

    I probably need a seal overhaul, but how

    makes sure your clearance lights are sealed - clear silicone caulk. Every leak I have had traced back to a clearance light issue.

    Good Deal On Marine Tex

    I have used Marine Tex many times to repair holes that I have carelessly allowed branches to punch into the fiberglass sheeting on my Warrior. I first used this product decades ago on a boat. This is a 2 part epoxy - comes in white & gray. The white is what I use. It is easy to use and when boondocking it is not so easy to find. Just restocked -found some on Amazon - this is my 2nd order from this vendor. they shipped on time no hassle the first time. Marine-Tex RM305K Marine-Tex - White, 2 oz. Sold by: Shorts Marine Discount Parts $12.79 Condition: New

    1989 Toyota Dolphin A/C

    yep and on hot summer days IF the engine driven system is working properly will cool the cockpit - the back should get a little cool. If the engine driven ac is weak --- ouch! I have seen people put a sheet behind the cockpit in an attempt to keep the cool air in the front. When evaluating the ac - put a thermometer in the center output vent - if you are getting 40 degrees that is good. 50 degrees .... well it should be ok. Some people add a generator to the rear bumper and run it while driving so they can run cabin AC

    Grey waste tank on 1992 Itasca Spirit question???

    here is a pic of the view from the back of my 93 Warrior (identical to spirit) - looking forward. Is that square tubing what you calling a "bar"? the square tubing on mine seems to be rigid in place. PS: pictures really help for questions like these

    without looking carefully at your current tires, one can not tell if they are road worthy. A careful exam for dry rot along with what I call the thumb test (pushing the threads for soft spots) is what I would do. If there is no dry rot and no soft spots or broken belts ( indicated by bulges in the thread or sidewall) they may be good for another year. However, if I was going on a really long trip I might buy new just to be sure anyway. If you google 185r14 you will find a number of tires. YES YOU WANT 8 ply (C or D rating) and YES you do NOT want the profile number (the 3 rd number) - you WILL encounter uninformed tire salesmen who will INSIST that you must have that 3rd number and/or they can make one like that work. You may even find one who adamantly insists that it MUST have that 3rd number - get him or her to bet - then tell them to look up 1986 vanagon (it uses the same tires as we do) and collect. IF

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Hankook-Vantra-LT-RA18-185R14-8-Commercial-Vans-tire/401349831https://www.walmart.com/ip/Hankook-Vantra-LT-RA18-185R14-8-Commercial-Vans-tire/401349831 can have it shipped free to a walmart that mounts tires (has an auto service section). Most will not remove the wheels though - I have removed mine outside their bays. about $20 for lifetime balance and road hazard, and if course wally worlds are about everywhere.

    the wire harness going to the airfilter will kill it too.
