  1. You guys are doing great, BUT I'm beginning to wonder if it would easier to switch the house into long wb T-100 . That would be mostly carpenter type work, which most of are better at.
  2. x2 Plus you really need to take a trip, 500mi or so, keep track of the actual miles and actual gal used.
  3. Its not much, something like 500lbs. Its so close you couldn't get a generator and a spare tire from the factory
  4. Just for grins I went to the 22re Performance site and did some reading... They are calling dino oil-mineral oil as opposed to synthetic. So just press on.
  5. The typical furnace is in the 3-5 amp range. Remember that they only run about 10% of the time, in normal camping weather. After 23 years in the USAF " jet engine" sounding heaters don't bother me 😀
  6. Mineral oil is a misnome, your fine with what's in it. In the OLD days break-in oil was a single weight low detergent oil. Now days mfg put in normal oil and just recommend a short oil change for the " break-in". The really HP engines are shipped with synthetic oil from the get go. Old OHV pushrod engines ( not 22re) sometimes have cam break-in problems so there are hi zinc break-in oils . A few year ago the diesel engine oils were good to use on older engines BUT they have been reformatted for use in DEF diesels and are worse than normal auto oils. One of the better old school oils now is the Valvoline VR1 oil. Best thing to do is contact 22re performance and see what they recommend for oil after the first oil change.
  7. When I replaced my stat I found a cheap 1 day programmable thermostats. Programeded igt to kick on about a half hour before I planned to wake up the next morning. Didn't need a 7 day programmable because on vacation there is no weekend
  8. Ebay No Idea of quality, seller has good feed back. http://www.ebay.com/itm/85-95-Toyota-Pickup-2-4L-Complete-Cylinder-Head-Head-Gasket-Set-Bolts-22RE-/281094975886?hash=item417290f18e:g:D00AAOSw5VFWQpbj&vxp=mtr#vi-ilComp
  9. Lowe's... a battery powered millivolt digital will work great. simple : https://www.lowes.com/pd/Honeywell-Electronic-Non-Programmable-Thermostat/3464344 programmable : https://www.lowes.com/pd/Honeywell-Basic-Digital-5-2-Day-Programmable-Thermostat/3464340
  10. Well if the brand names are failing, try some chineseum rotors from ebay. Look for groved or dimpled rotors. Do not use drilled rotors.
  11. Some toys have a real anti roll bar mounted on the rear axle. For short term just remove it to get the rig home.
  12. We're leaving June 10 for the Grand Canyon and the Utah canyons. Next year is Glacier and into WA and OR. We've done the OR coast route before and we're really impressed by the state parks
  13. Your rig is 25 years old, with who knows how many owners. Some PO were good some not so good. You have to act like they were all bad and check everything 2 x
  14. Check your battery polarity, there is weird wiring on some coach batteries. The click is probably an auto reset circuit breaker.
