    1981 Toyota pickup twist gas cap. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/toyota,1981,pickup,2.4l+l4,1277142,fuel+&+air,fuel+tank+cap,5900
  2. Good luck with matching "White" Plan B... Forget about matching, try contrast. Dark red, Dove gray, just Black. What color are the original decals?

    Gas Cap

    1985/86 pickup threaded cap...https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/toyota,1985,pickup,2.4l+l4,1277300,fuel+&+air,fuel+tank+cap,5900 There other P/Ns listed so they may crossover at your local auto parts. Remember you want a gas cap for a Toyota pickup not a gas cap for a Sunrader
  4. See if there are any tent makers/repair services locally.

    If only they still made Toy RVs, well here's a suitable substitute😈. https://leisurevans.com/blog/wonder-rl/
  6. Many vent fans have the fuse built in to the fan housing.

  8. Your basic math is good, but it is not going to be enough in the real world, so make it "gooder". A simple change is more battery. Check your battery box and see what will fit. A gp 24 has around 60-70 AH. A gp27 has about 20% more AH, a gp 31 has about 35% more. Check the internet for actual sizes. A proper solar panel setup, if you dry camp for 2-3 days, will save a lot of engine running. If you only camp for 1 day then drive to the next stop, then this is not so helpful. A 2000w inverter generator A pure sine is about 90% efficient and a modified sine is around 75%. The actual draw difference between a 1200w and 1500w inverter is negligible. What is more important is idle current. How much it draws when its plugged in but not running anything.
  9. The fill hose should screw in to the outside fill port and clamp to the water tank. I THINK?? the white "bucket" is the top half of an old style interior battery box. You put the house batteries inside an air tight box and then ran a vent hose up hill to the outside. When you charge a lead acid battery it vents hydrogen, so this set up vented the hydrogen outside, instead of recreating the Hindenburg in your house. Unless you have the bottom somewhere just junk it.
  10. Actually its a refer. Today on Woot they have 3 sizes 16, 42, 52 qts. These are compressor units by LG. Here is the 42qt...https://tools.woot.com/offers/acopower-x40a-42qts-lioncooler-2?ref=w_cnt_wp_0_1 It has a built in 10 battery

    LED marker lights

    If you have 12v at the first light, it should be working. If you have 12v where you spliced into the Toyota wires thats different. Check the ground for the lights, old Toyota's are very bad about having poor/bad grounds
