    What type and brand of Deep Cycle Battery to you recommend? I just had a Walmart battery go bad after 2 years. That seems to be pretty short for a $100 battery!

    Changing fuel pump

    Unfortunately I just filled it with gas right before discovering the need to take tank down and change pump. I talked with a Mechanic a couple days ago and will probably go that route. I not only have trouble getting back up when I lay down under a vehicle I will invariably develop equilibrium problems.

    Changing fuel pump

    I have discovered that right above the tank is metal plate welded to angle iron that anchors the swivel chairs in the camper. The metal plate runs the full length of the tank. I believe that on this model I will have to drop the tank.

    Changing fuel pump

    I was considering doing the hatch in the floor. I don't do well crawling underneath these days. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Changing fuel pump

    My camper is a 1985 Escaper. The fuel pump is inside the gas tank. Has anyone had experience changing these. Is there a access panel to get to this or do you have to take the gas tank out of the camper. Any advise would be appreciated!

    Moving to shreveport la

    There are several nice parks in the area. North Toledo Bend has a nice State Park. If you have a golden age pass and once you are a LA resident the fees are cut in half. I no longer live in that area as of 4 years ago but enjoyed it while there. Over in Texas close to Tyler is also a very nice park.

    I do not see any response to this topic but I sure wish there was more information about it.

    Windshield Leak Water Gets Into Cab

    I had a similar problem. When you take off the trim on the bottom there is a cover that goes across the vehicle where the fresh air comes into the cab. Once that cover is removed you will find a cavity that goes across the vehicle. That cavity opens to the fender and drains the water that come off the windshield to the ground. the hood hinge folds up into that cavity. There is seam that crosses the vehicle where the hinge and the firewall meet that make up the bottom edge of that cavity. Mine was rusted through at and above that seam. It was not visible from outside the cavity or inside the hood since it was above the seam inside the cavity. I cut into the cavity from the top and revealed the hole and sealed it up. The first layer of metal that is at the bottom of your windshield on mine (an 85 model) came off with screws. I first remove the chrome at bottom of windshield and then remove the vented cover that goes across the vehicle. I was then able to pour water into the cavity and then check into the cab to see if I had water intrusion. Yours may be different problem but that is how I solved mine.

    side mirror brackets

    I put new mirror on mine but could not find the righthand mirror that allows for "object are closer than they appear" or manification adjustment. How do you handle this or do you just use the same mirror on both sides

    Water leak

    Thanks for the suggestions. I located the problem. Right behind the hood hinge I found a rusted out place that goes through the fire wall. Have not water tested it yet, waiting on the calking to dry. However I am pretty sure that this is the guilty partky. To get acess I had to cut into the cavity from the top. have to work for the next few days. Will reseal and test in a few days. tds

    Water leak

    Has anyone had to deal with water leaking into the cab? If so how did you deal with it? We recently had a thre day rain and it showed up. It is not the heater core or the condensation from the AC. I have alreadky checked both of these. It seem to come in on the fire wall on the passenger side but not sure exactly where.
