  1. Houston flood took my toyhome

    HEY THERE, first of all, you and all Texan's are in my prayers, sorry for your loss, MH, and otherwise. I have a past connection to Houston , I lived there in the mid to late seventies. as to your toy, I hate to think of a toy going to a bone yard. maybe someone will buy it and have the time, knowledge and resources to keep it alive and on the road. I do understand that in the scope of things, for you, other priorities, come first. GOD bless, and good luck in the future. joe from dover.
  2. hey there, since you mentioned an outside shower may be an option for you. check out etrailer.com. they sell a complete outside shower package for about $30.00. it includes the shower wand, faucet, and enclosure to mount in the side or back of your rig. the enclosure is lockable and has two keys. i got free shipping with amazon prime. hope this helps, joe from dover.
  3. 2017 SOLAR ECLIPSE TRIP

    the solar eclipse trip was "totality" awesome. (pun intended). this was the farthest mark and i traveled with our rigs. happy to report the 1200 mile round trip produced no problems. the rigs ran well, no issues of any kind. we planned our trip from dover, ohio to 4 miles north of carbondale, il.(murphysboro) with the intention of not using the interstates. the majority of the east - west travel took place on U.S. 50. the other roads were state routes. we definitely went through the heartland of the midwest. lots of soybean and corn fields to look at. as we went through many small towns, we enjoyed seeing the town squares and the small local businesses. the road conditions were excellent. only two or three very minor construction areas the entire trip.slowing down through small towns, stopping frequently, allowed for about 45 miles per hour average. we were in no hurry and enjoyed the slow pace.there was absolutely no traffic congestion either way. utilizing the wally world campgrounds (once on the way to our destination and once on the way back) offered a teachable moment. not all wal-marts are friendly or receptive to parking in their lots. we were given permission, although reluctantly, along with stern warnings to be on our way at daybreak. even though we were in the farthest reaches of the parking lot, far from view of the main entrance, near the trash dumpsters, and loading docks, an employee was dispatched on a mission to inform me that my folding chair and i must vacate the parking lot immediately and return to the confines of my winnie. or we would be in violation of the strict no camping policy, and be asked to leave . i find it amusing that apparently three senior citizens, who were polite, asked permission, made purchases in the store, some how posed a threat to the peaceful town of wally world, by relaxing for a few minutes in a folding chair. in the future, for me, i will explore other options for an over nite parking spot.one experience with the wal mart park(ing) lot ranger is enough! thank GOD he was not armed. the wally world encounters contrasted greatly with the warm, open welcoming we had at the murphysboro moose lodge. we asked months in advance and were told we would be very welcome to park or rigs at their lodge for the eclipse. we arrived sunday afternoon and left tuesday morning. a big shout out and thank you to the people of the moose for making us all feel like family with their hospitality. mark took some stellar photos of the eclipse. and the eclipse itself was awe inspiring. scratch one off the bucket list. joe from dover.
  4. There And Back...With My Cat

    great photos. incredible trip. i have been to a few of the places on your journey. brought back some fond memories. thanks so much for your posting. unbelievable how well your rig performed. those 4 bangers truly are "tanks". good luck in the future. joe from dover
  5. hey there, may I suggest buying a "BAKER" scaffold for easy access to coach areas, especially for the cabover. the baker will permit you to work on the cabover without difficulty. you can find a baker at harbor freight fairly cheap, about $100.00 or less with coupons, sale flyers. etc. I used my baker to easily have a stable work platform when I replaced my cabover and rear clearance lights. all bakers are uniform or standard in size, they will span the front of the cab between the fenders, and are adjustable for platform height. joe from dover.
  6. Door Handle Light

    GREAT JOB HOMER. MOTIVATION AND INGENUITY ! LOVE IT. JOE FROM DOVER
  7. fuel pump in tank

    HEY THERE, I HAVE A FRIEND WITH AN 1986 WINNIE, HE REPLACED THE PUMP IN HIS. HE GOT ON LINE AND THOUGHT HE HAD ORDERED THE CORRECT PUMP, THE PIECE OF CRAP THAT FINALLY SHOWED UP WAS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO WHAT HE NEEDED. HE THEN WENT TO THE LOCAL TOYOTA DEALER AND HAD THE PARTS PERSON LOOK UP THE CORRECT PART NUMBER FOR HIS RIG USING THE VIN. ORDERED THE PUMP FROM A NAPA AUTO PARTS AND GOT IT TWO DAYS LATER. PERFECT MATCH. HOPE THIS HELPS. JOE FROM DOVER.
  8. WELCOME, AND NICE LOOKING RIG. JOE FROM DOVER.
  9. thanks, nam. not sure about the differences between your 90 Itasca and my 92 warrior ? I do know that my warrior did not have the factory option genset. I have the factory build sheet that details all installed options from factory, as delivered to dealer. maybe Winnebago included the metal "shelf" I had to cut out because it did not have the optional genset?? any ways, it now works well for my needs. joe from dover.
  10. Electric Bike Conversion

    thanks for the link linda. may have to trade in the 20th century Honda hobbit and jump into the 21st century EBIKE. joe from dover.
  11. Looking to purchase generator

    hey there sherri B, a popular generator is the Honda 2000i. many use some similar gensets from harbor freight. HF sells a Honda clone. others like champion brand. and there are many others on the market. I have a Honda 2000i. I like the Honda for the following reasons, quiet. the Honda is one of the quietest gens on the market for it's size. some camp grounds, state/fed parks, limit the use of generators to certain times. and some forbid them totally. your fellow campers appreciate a very quiet genset. durability and parts availability are key, and Honda has an excellent reputation for both. my Honda will run my coleman roof top air on my 1992 Winnie warrior, as long as I am not using another major draw device(like a coffee pot , electric skillet, etc.). your shore power cord can be plugged into the genset 110/120 outlet (s) with a commonly found "plug adapter", hope this helps, joe from dover.
  12. I am screwed, they want the barcode from each box the shocks came in. boxes went to the land fill months ago. joe from dover.
  13. Sealing up roof on 1986 Dolphin

    my 2 cents on this...... as I am sure you are already aware, a leaking roof can be the worst imaginable nightmare for these rigs. I had my entire roof replaced last year. cost nearly 5k. and took the shop months to get it back to me. I would only use a product specific for rv use. not suggesting the product you are considering would NOT work. but why gamble when the rv industry have developed roof products that are guaranteed to provide you with a leak proof roof when applied correctly. I would vote to pass on this silicone product. just my opinion of course. joe from dover
  14. Zep use?

    I DON'T REALLY GIVE A HOOT IF ZEP RECOMMENDS THEIR FLOOR POLISH FOR MH'S OR NOT. IT WORKS. JOE FROM DOVER
  15. Have these lines been replaced?

    looks the same as my 92 warrior. they are original. joe from dover
