  1. Auto parts store ( Carquest-NAPA-Autozone) will have fuel filler hose in the sizes you need. Also will have exhaust pipe components in the sizes you need. I went this route when my filler hose developed age rot.

    Does Size Matter?

    Being 6ft 1 myself, the learning curve as far as the AC goes, is the curve your head puts in it.

    Rockin' Issue

    Just out of curiosity, how old are the tires. If the sidewalls are old enough, they can get mushy and you can lose stability.

    Motorhome Cover

    I use a poly tarp and poly rope tie downs. Keep it covered all Winter here in Michigan. After it gets worn out from covering the MH, I cut it up and use it for covering my riding lawn mower for the Winter.

    How much oil does your rig burn?

    Howdy ILIA... well, could be rings or valve seals. Have a wet and dry compression test done. That will tell you a lot. Hope this helps.

    Purchasing a Toyota Motorhome

    At this stage of the game, all Toys are , or will be projects. The youngest ones are close to 15 years old. If you don't wish to get really involved in repair of an old MH, I would not buy a Toy. Get something within 10 years old and you will probably be a lot happier. My 2 cents worth. John
  9. Got to wondering today, do any of you folks carry anything for personal protection in your MH in case of a breakin ?

    Missed talkin' to you Folks. Recent financial reverses due to a divorce and my old computer giving up the ghost dictated I drop the internet for a while. Hopefully, a ways down the road, things will break loose again and I can bore the heck otta ya'll again. Till then . , keep the dirty side down... John

    1983 Mirage Motorhome

    A lot of times you can download info from the manufacturers websites. So, like Dometic for frigds, etc. Running gear goes with Toyota manuals.Great thing about this is you get up to date info, not something 30 years old.A big plus for me is some sites have tech help forums. Free help at the backside of your keyboard.Jump on that like a duck onna junebug, Folks.
