  1. I run my dolphin ac at home on a dedicated 20 amp no 12 wire when I am getting it ready too go I use a step down 30 to 20 adapter .
  2. per LINDA a broken belt then your temp gage goes up of course . have had 7 Toyotas all bad alternater aways causes both brake and charge light to come on . baffeled me first time it happened . years from 1977 1987 all same thing .
  3. fittings I just had that slight drip under dolphin . the conections on the fawect on the bathroom sinck had worked lose .I was not connected to city water but noticed the pump coming on now and then .
  4. the 1979 I kind of a one year cab 2 big round headlights the 1980 81 start the big squre lights
  5. for out lets some are on a gfi make shure they are not tripped . you might try switiching the breakers off and back to on make shure not tripped .
  6. is there a possably that there is still air in the system . fan clutches do fail but the ones I have replaced froze up stuck on all the time not saying it is not the clutch.parts men and mechinices have told me thermostats are these days prone to high failer rate . in my dodge car the thermostat broke apart one leg broke off I am 66 driving since 1969 never seen or heard of that .
  7. I use a small gas go anywhere weber I carry propane only. in Washington st at least the eastern part . we are not allowed too use charcoal at all . when in advanced fire season . pressure fired stoves only. and no campfires at all .
  8. hi I been of for a while welcome hear this group is great here nice people . ask things on the systems . people on here will point you along .
  9. I will post more later   am recovering from a bad case of the shingles the pain is  often quite high takes about a month to get past them .

  10. REGARDING different manufacture names on the same tire . may more relate to a dealer thing . for example les schwab is a pretty large chain they often re house brand tires one of there popular Light truck line of tires was the wildcat and wildcountry xtx of which I have a set on my other Toyota PU, have heard they were Kelly springfield don't know.
  11. with all due respect I noticed no one mentioned that many special tools can be rented .
  12. you have reasonable cond ition bucket seats will trade you for my bench seat out of 1987 XTRA cab pu I don't need super con dition . bench seat not so good on my 66 year old hips. to my knloge cant spell the trucks pu came eather way my son had 86 with buckets.
  13. Atlanta camper you are very correct I have gotten those from LES Schwab . 500 stores in the west .
  14. the flame is very small it uses very little propane . I don't run on the road with mine lit . if it is good and cold frost in the freezer top pack it full of frozen stuff and cold stuff . I can drive 100 miles it will stay fine then camp and fire it up on gas . on eletric it would drain a battery fast .
  15. that 2 gallon air tank you have is an interesting idea .just like a house pump tank. must save some wear on your pump ,and battery draw. have you ever seen one of those old time campers with an air pump pumping air into a metal water tank. my frend had a 1969 with that . maybe after 2 days they would pump a little more air in great pressure. come fall they just blew it out with that worked great . had an old time no battery need ed heater gravity unit really put out the heat . as a handy man do you miss the old radio shack I mean before it went in the tolit . I do .
