  1. Hey there sonny, there are stain blocker primer paints. one brand is KILZ and another is BIN. I have used kilz many times with great results. hope this helps. joe from dover.
  2. Mr. Heater?

    HEY THERE, mr. heaters use propane canisters. I would be far more comfortable ( no pun intended), with a ceramic electric heater. the one I have has a built in safety feature that shuts the heater off if it somehow would fall over. the propane heaters all suck oxygen and cause condensation. that is why the warning labels state to use in well ventilated areas.i am aware that some roof top ac units had as an option, an electric heat panel , which, although not a furnace, does provide a heat source. my 92 Winnie does not have this option but is prewired for easy installation of one. hope this helps. joe from dover.
  3. my 92 Winnie gets on average 12.5 mpg. I kept track diligently and the best I ever got was 14 mpg with rig completely empty . on a 1200 mile round trip after every fill up I would do the math and it was always 12 to 13 mpg. I quit checking. I have no idea where some of the posted (18 to 20 mpg ) come from. I do not engage my overdrive. unless you are on interstate 10 in Arizona, there is not enough long flat stretches of road to gain much from OD. my opinion. but I do have plenty of power. I can set the cruise at 65 and it will run beautifully. all the above mentioned suggestions are spot on, tire pressure, tune up, etc. but my thoughts are you get what you get and 12.5 mpg is not all that bad considering the amount of weight you are pushing down the road. joe from dover.

  5. Fuel Gauge no workie, '81 mini-cruiser

    hey there minicruiser, welcome to the group. my friend has a 86 Minnie Winnie. the fuel gauge did not work when he bought it. he went to the local Toyota dealer parts department, got the Toyota part number, and had it shipped to his friend's shop and installed. I think he paid about $90.00 for the new part. hope this helps, BTW, may I ask where in the buckeye state you are. ? I am in dover, south of canton. happy for another toya owner in ohio. best wishes, joe from dover.
  6. tri-mark dead bolt lock

    even more info. found the exact blank key match. from guess who, "WINNEBAGO INDUSTRIES", Winnebago part number 101145-01-700. tir-mark still makes the same deadbolt assembly, and Winnebago still uses them. the current version is tri-mark dead bolt assembly part number 11840-02. cost $72.25 plus about $5.00 shipping. the cost for three blank keys is $10.50, plus $5.00 shipping. I bought 3 blanks just in case dean would need more than one to create the new master key. thanks to all. joe from dover.
  7. tri-mark dead bolt lock

    a little more info......here in dover, we do have a REAL locksmith. 3rd generation family business. I have been a customer for 30yrs. I previously owned rental properties and often was at dean's for keys, locksets, etc. went to dean's yesterday and he assured me he could produce a key, if he had a blank, which he did not have at his shop, that is why I searched, and found blanks at TRI-MARK'S web site. can not definitively state that the dead bolt I have was original to the motorhome, but it appears to be. I have installed scores of locksets and dead bolts for residential doors and this unit is definitely not a residential unit. I suppose my best bet is to just order the blanks on tri-marks site and hope for the best. as far as cost, the blanks are less than $5.00, and if I have the blank dean will make the key for another $5.00. once he has a master to duplicate he charges $1.00 to cut additional keys. thanks for replies. joe from dover
  8. tri-mark dead bolt lock

    my 92 Winnie warrior, has two keyed locks on coach door. the dead bolt lock is above the passage door lock. when I bought rig from PO , there was no key for the dead bolt door lock. not really a big deal to me since it can be locked from the inside handle. but, thought it would be nice to have a key to lock and unlock from outside. soooo, I took it off the door yesterday and found that the manufacturer is "tri-mark", and after a google search, found they are still in business, and offer key blanks for older locks. they have specific model numbers to identify the older locks for matching specific key blanks. I could not find a model number on the lock assembly anywhere. does anyone in our vast pool of info/knowledge of all things Toy MH, know where to locate or find a model number for this dead bolt lock? once I have the model number I can get a key blank. all help is greatly appreciated. thanks in advance. joe from dover.

  10. Does alternator charge coach battery while driving?

    wme - question - I looked at the products you provided links to. thanks. the question I have is this.... does the plug in volt meter (plug in to the cigarette lighter socket) display tell you how the coach battery is charging ? or the motor compartment battery ? ...or both ? I also liked the other product that allows for charging other devices. so same questions for that product as well. thanks in advance for your help. joe from dover
