  1. Solar barely runs refrigerator

    Have you thought about adding a marine wind turbine to your system? I have been kicking around the idea but have not done it. It could mount on the old TV antenna mount. A marine wind turbine (when there is wind) will probably give one 5 to 10 times the charge rate, over the solar panel.
  2. Fuel tank volume

    Wow...17 gallon tanks...my 1990 Odyssey has a 15 gallon tank!
  3. Solar eclipse rally

    As luck would have it, I have three properties in the totality zone for the 2024 solar eclipse. Carbondale (4 minutes 30 seconds, Indianapolis (3 minutes 30 seconds) and Losantville (4 minutes, 1 second). If I still have my Toyota, I am willing to host a Solar Eclipse rally in I Losantville (its 10 acres, 200amp service).
  4. How old are the tires and are they Load Range D? If tires are 8 years or older (regardless of the miles), you probably should replace them.
  5. Starting a 7500 miles trip on June 1

    Baraboo! One of my favorite places! The trip sounds great....
  6. Canned Meat at Walmart.

    I used to get canned bacon from K-Mart a long time ago, but cannot find it anywhere. It was great to take camping. We use the Spam Bacon, good but not the same. Also, Walmart sells a vacuum sealed bag of tuna fish and salmon that has a shelf life of a few years, and is low cost ($1 and change) and is pretty good.
  7. 1991 Dolphin

    Any Toyota motorhome over $10,000 sounds high to me, but it is all about condition, buy anyway you slice it, it still is a 26 year old motorhome. Dennis...

    They should be standard size, but for a Toyota 1-Ton chassis. Dennis...
  9. New to me 93 Dolphin, V6

    can you post a picture of that "Roll Bar"? Only thing I can think of at the moment is the rear brake proportioning valve and if that is hanging you might have brake issues. Also, check the date (DOT stamp, last 4 digits are WWYY) on the tires just to be sure they are not over 8 years old, there has been a lot of stories of old tires blowing out on long trips. Also, these motorhomes were made when the nationwide speed limit was 55mph, so don't push her at 70mph, I try to stick to 60mph.
  10. 90 Odyssey purchase

    My 1990 Odyssey road ready (but no gear or people) weights in at 6,500lbs, 4500lbs on the rear axle and 2,000lbs on the front axle. My propane tank is removable, I have door right behind the driver seat where it resides. Dennis...
  11. Solar eclipse rally

    I just saw on the Wyoming map that Alliance, NE will be 2m 32 seconds. Alliance is an interesting town (main employer is a train repair) that is stuck in 1950 (middle of nowhere and no restaurant chains and few chains of anything else). Please Car Hedge is there!
  12. 90 Odyssey purchase

    If you propane tank is original and no one will fill it, don't immediately replace it, try to get it re-certified. Any Propane supplier (vs a retail filler) should be able to certify the existing propane tank for under $20 and will stamp it which will make it good for another 5 years, in which you can get re-certified again.
  13. 90 Odyssey purchase

    Regarding the head gasket recall, when I called Toyota they told me that it did not apply to my VIN, the truck date on mine is 1989, but it is a 1990 model year on title.
  14. 90 Odyssey purchase

    Hello, I have a 1990 Toyota Odyssey, the rear door model (Durango). The Odyssey model is the biggest (tallest and widest) and heaviest coach of any of the Toyotas made. Regarding tires, go with Hankook RA8 195/R14 Load Range D. They give you the maximum load capability and have no problems with spacing on the duel rear tires (I have at least a half inch gap when parked). Dennis...
  15. Any RV's with bunkbeds?

    Hello... my bunk bed is in the Do it your self section, it does not block the aisle way at all:
