    Side mirrors, only 1 is convex?

    Try Napa, they use to stock the mirrors.
  4. If you plan on removing the windows then, rubbing compound and a power buffer should do the job. As a possible plan b try mineral spirits, it all depends on the quality of the paint used.

    Bought a Sunrader - SO STOKED!!

    The problem, such as it is, is with the transmission not the rear axle. 5th gear OD are great if you have 300hp, then a slow running gets better MPG. But with 105 hp there is no excess power to allow you to relax the throttle. You have to use a lot of throttle to run 5th gear. That places a big load on the 5th gear bearings. The transmission was designed for a 3000lb pickup not a 6000lb mobile house. Basically 5th is for tail winds and down grades. You will soon find out when you can use it. So go ahead and play with it. Short term no foul. As a side note most people with the automatics report the same or better mpg by NOT using OD, so keep close track of your mpg with and without 5th gear

    Remember the post about 5 speeds way back in the beginning of your journey. Start saving for a new rear axle center pumpkin with a 4:56 ratio. EBay is a good starting place or your local pick n pull.

    Curtain between cab and coach

    I went to a large fabric store and found a quilted multilayered thermal window fabric. Wife sewed a folded flap on the top and stitched a full length bungee cord in it. I screwed eye hooks on each side and would just loop the cord in them. She sewed a flap on the bottom and I installed a length of light chain in it. The chain keeps the bottom sealed and will go over things if need be. In the summer a cheap clear shower curtain works to keep the cab cool with the dash AC

    Looks like the passenger side front upper window is cracked. I think they are in the $275 EA,.+ shipping, range. There is a suitable substitute for the seal

    Rear Dinette to Bed Converting

    The small table top makes a better table for eating. The folding bed support is simple and the only "problem" is storing it.

    Traveling with pets

    Yep ditch the Kat, get a dog... We travel with 2 small dogs, they, quickly learned the rules and we only had problems once. A tornado warning caliber, thunder storm, both dogs made it to the bed on the first thunder boom. A little mess next morning To keep control of the liter box stuff you would need some sort of a box with a roof and a flap door, an open box would get liter scattered around with a serious bump. Depending on your cat, a lot of the litter boxes end up in the shower/tub
  17. OKey DOkey. If the floor and transmission are generating enough heat to do that, its time to research Reflectix. Remove the seats peal back the carpet and lay one layer over the front floor and up the firewall as far as the carpet goes. Put an 2nd layer over the transmission hump and the driver side floor over the cat converter. Flip the carpet back over and install the seats. Your toy will be cooler and quieter

    Spare tire relocating?

    One of the Toyota PU hoist showed up on Ebay.. https://www.ebay.com/itm/90-Toyota-pickup-spare-tire-winch-mount-holder-carrier-lifter-hoist-2WD-/112776219863 Here is the setup on my Class A, its probably to big for a Toyota RV but the idea might work removing the tire from the rear... https://www.rvupgradestore.com/BAL-Hide-A-Spare-70-Frame-Recessed-Mount-p/92-0150.htm
  19. Next warm day open the hood and sniff around the cowl area. Also maybe try a hair dryer and heat up different places.

    Spare tire relocating?

    Your best bet is a trip to your local wrecking yard. Find a Toyota pu of the same year as your MH and pull the under mount bracket and chain hoist. Sometimes they are on ebay

    The Magic of Zep Wet Look Floor Polish

    Yep poor repair, then painted with "white" WalMart paint. There is a chassis tag on the firewall it should have a code for the Toyota color on the cab. From your photos the Toyota color is a much better match than "white". Just go to an auto parts store to get a rattle can of matching paint. Stick your hand in an old nylon panty hose and rub it over the repair. You will feel everything. You may need a long board to sand things smooth, then spray on the new paint. Warning the paint will take several months to harden. After that you can Zep it.

    Bought a Sunrader - SO STOKED!!

    In the pile of receipts is there one for a timing chain/timing kit? Passing smog is a very good karma on your part. Lets see shocks..Monroe MEH... good KYB....best Bilstien.. medium difficulty replacement (rusty bolts) Bilstiens are a bit more sporty in the handling deport. Tie Rod ends easy, bushings are medium hard, have your guy check the ball joints too. You will need a front wheel alignment after everything is installed. If your mechanic is crafty he can replace the pan gasket without pulling the engine, BUT check the front seal first, its the usual suspect when it comes to oily pans and is fairly easy to replace.

    The 22r is in the anvil class when it comes to reliability. Thing to watch for is the timing chain and chain tensioner, their easy to check with valve cover off, you need to adjust the valves at least once to set a base line. The carb is a sore point as its old and its hard to find quality carb builders these days. Alternative is a CA smog approved Weber conversion. Your radiator looks new if the PO was good to Lil Putt maybe he did the timing chain too.
