  1. Nope, not in vain. The rig has so few issues and I know it so well that there's not much of a reason for me to log on here often. The photos were lost when the site owner migrated to a new message board system, methinks. I still have the pics somewhere and can likely email them to you. Drop me a line at spungo@sbcglobal.net

  2. I joined this forum because of your tranny thread. I couldn't see the pics, so had to join, and still can't see the pics!

    This says you were last active on Sep 04 2010, so I can only assume that this is in vain?

  3. Great tranny write up. I have my engine out and am thinking of doing the a43d (114k miles). I got the 1993 book on it and there are some things, I bet that are critical, that are hard to understand from the pictures. I hate to do it and have it fail because of some small thing. Are you okay with a phone call if I have a couple of questions? Or email? Mine is symbiotic@hotmail.com -- thanks. Kim

  4. I'm 6'5", 36" inseam, and have 2 bad knees, one of which was mangled so horribly that I actually had the interesting experience of putting pieces of knee in my shirt pocket in case the nice people in the ER could make use of 'em. While I'd certainly enjoy more room, I've been pretty comfy driving my Sunrader 800 miles in a single sitting several times. If my creaky drumsticks can hang with it, a normal person should do spiffy. While it's possible to modify anything with the right tools and motivation, repositioning the seat looks to be a pretty tall order. The world seems to be set up for little pipsqueaks, so sometimes ya just gotta make do.

    Flea Circus

    Flea bomb, eh? Unfortunately, too often our solution to problems is to douse everything in poison. Then, all surfaces in your camper will be coated with poison. Sounds delightful. I'm sure oncologists love those kinds of ideas, for those titanium putters don't exactly pay for themselves, now, do they? I could do without the borax, too. An alternative is diatomaceous earth, available at Lowes, etc. Completely non-toxic, and it also damages the exoskeleton. Very effective. Rub it onto your pet, and it wipes out the critters with none of the ill-effects of that HORRIBLE monthly stuff that's applied between the animal's shoulder blades. I've already saved 4 very sick dogs from ignorant owners who kept mindlessly poisoning their friends with the latest, greatest vet-approved atrocity. The most effective method for me has been a clip-on light with a tray of water under it. Turn off all other lights. The fleas jump at the light, then fall in the water and drown. Those round beer trays they serve oysters in work very well. Add a drop of dish soap to the water to break surface tension so the fleas sink immediately. This has never failed to eliminate the problem in a few days. If you have fleas, the bites should be visible. Check around the top of your socks. It's very effective to walk thru a suspect area to your clip on light, then check your ankles for fleas, pick 'em off, and chunk 'em in the tray of water. Fleas are attracted to walking animals, so if they're present, a slow, heavy gait will bring them to you. It's easy to get rid of fleas without poisoning everything in sight or cracking your wallet open. Good luck.
