    Rubber Roofs

    I am no expert on roofs, I can relate what I was told by the rv shop that replaced my roof ( originally aluminum) on my 92 Winnie. the shop replaced my roof with rubber. the shop owner told me that the rubber roof material is the industry standard now. back in the day the rubber material was not used. to my understanding, you need not coat a rubber roof unless you have a cut or hole in the membrane. proper cleaning and using a cleaner with a uv protectant should be sufficient. with older aluminum roofs, you are subject to developing cracks and pin holes in the aluminum as it ages, therefore requiring a coating being applied. joe from dover.
  5. I use a type of rolling scaffold commonly referred to as a "baker". it will fit over the front of the cab. side to side it clears the fenders. the platform that you stand on is adjustable for height. I adjust mine to about a foot above the hood. I can then reach the clearance lights easily. "bakers", can be found at harbor freight, and the big box stores such as lowes. they are about $200.00. often on sale at HF, for $150.00. joe from dover.

    1986 Toyota Dolphin roof question

    there are different types of plexi. some are made with a uv protectant. if it is not the uv type it will, over time degrade developing cracks. becomes extremely brittle and probably leak . also how thick is the plexi ? as linda said, reinforcement for load bearing is critical. my vote for this roof remodel is - "no way" joe from dover.

    Source of Overhead Cab Leak Found

    I HAVE A 92 WINNIE WARRIOR. YOUR DESCRIPTION OF THE AREA BEING "SOFT" INDICATES TO ME WOOD ROT OR DAMAGE BEHIND THE FIBERGLAS. IF THIS IS THE CASE, YOU MAY BE LOOKING AT A MAJOR REPAIR. ANOTHER POSSIBILITY IS THE FIBERGLAS HAS DELAMINATED, AND THERE IS A WAY TO FIX THAT WITH ADHESIVE. BEST OF LUCK. JOE FROM DOVER.
  11. I replaced my entire outdoor shower. I believe E TRAILER had the whole kit, including the locking enclosure, faucet, hose and wand for less than I could replace the faucet for. I did not use the enclosure, I just needed the other parts, faucet, hose and wand. a PO, had replaced the faucet at some point with a bath room vanity faucet from home depot or lowes. it was a poor choice, all the RV hose and wands have a different thread than the home version. explains why there was no hose and wand when I bought my Winnie. I think I spent less than $35.00 for the new unit. install is a breeze if you can have someone inside and someone outside. my someone outside was called duct tape. joe from dover.

    Painting over decals

    just a heads up about paint over decals. my warrior had failed (cracked) decals which a PO had painted over. the cracks telegraphed through the paint. very ugly. I completely removed the affected decals and replaced with new. if your decals are not damaged or cracked you are probably good to go. joe from dover.
  14. make sure to clean the window tracks. any small amount of dirt and debris can make sliding the windows very hard. I had issues with my windows not sliding as well. I was surprised to discover the amount of dirt laying in the track. once cleaned they were much easier to slide. joe from dover.

    towing limits 92 warrior

    WME-- my rig has a frame mounted 2 inch receiver. also has a trans cooler. a larger trans cooler makes sense. I guess the brakes are what they are. not sure how you would beef up or improve on brakes. thanks for the insight, good info. LINDA -- yes a 72 Honda 600 coupe, ironically, I purchased the same car in 1972. my first new car! I was 21 years old then!!! I paid under $1,800.00 for the car then. NOW -- seen a couple on CL and other places, in good condition for 10k plus, in totally restored condition, 22 to 27k unbelievable ! if I only knew. thanks for the help. joe from dover.
