    towing limits 92 warrior

    I am sure this has been discussed before, but I would appreciate input from others. I was wondering if It would be realistic/ possible (with out potential major damage to drive train) to tow a 1500 pound vehicle. the vehicle actually weighs 1312 pounds curb weight. with a tow bar I figure close to 1500 pounds. most trips would be under 600 miles round trip, local to me in the Midwest (central ohio), and not planning to go to the rockies or farther west. any input, thoughts, experiences, would help before I actually purchase the vehicle. thanks in advance. joe from dover

    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.
  6. POSTED ABOUT 8 HOURS AGO: 1986 TOYOTA MOTOR HOME, CRAIGSLIST, AKRON OHIO. MOTORHOME IN NEAR BY STOW, OHIO. POST INDICATES COACH REBUILT WITH NEW EXTERIOR WALLS, (LOOKS LIKE FILON, WHITE, NO GRAPHICS) AND RUBBER ROOF. ASKING $9,500.00 I BELIEVE IT STATED UNDER 30K MILES. 22RE MOTOR. ABOUT A DOZEN PICS ON POST. ALSO, SET OF TAIL LIGHTS FOR TOYA ON COLUMBUS, OHIO CRAIGSLIST ($60.00) HAS PIC. JOE FROM DOVER.
  7. 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.
  12. 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.
  15. 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.

    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.

    Essential accessories

    I have found leveling blocks a must. maybe off topic of "essentials". I also take a 10' x 10' pop up since I have no attached awning. provides protection from rain, sun etc. it is not an expensive one, about $60.00 on sale from HF, also from HF, I carry a poly tarp and some bungee straps. maybe some difference of opinions on this, but I use the RV toilet paper only. this is only my third year owning a toya MH, I find that the process of what I take is always evolving. I started with a standard drip coffee pot, I now have a small (4 cup ) model, similar to the ones you find in motel rooms. saves a lot of space and weight. just one example, as you gain more experience, you learn. lot of great tips and ideas I have adopted from the "old timers" here. good luck. happy camping. joe from dover.

    1986 Wanderlust Project - Wanda

    I can tell that was a TON of work. thanks for the pics, they really help as a resource for future "rebuilders", the pics also confirm what a great job you did. good luck, best wishes and hang in there. joe from dover.

    Need some tips!

    depends on how much you want to invest in time and money, as with everything. you could put a fiberglass patch on the inside to cover holes, then use "bondo", or a product ( sorry the name escapes me at the moment) that applies like bondo but is actually metal rather than plastic or whatever bondo is, it sands the same and is paintable. available at auto body supply stores. the rotten wood should be easily replaced from inside. complete agreement with fred, stay away from silicone. use rv specific caulk, and seam products. good luck with the rebuild. keep us posted. joe from dover.

    Newbie with questions

    hi and welcome. the locks you are trying to locate can be found at rv supply stores. such as camping world. also look online. another choice is to find cabinet locks, 3/4 to 1 inch dia. hole with straight or off set striker. trying to find some replacement parts ( door handle ) can be challenging. some of these parts are not available new, and you may have to find used, or innovate. the plumbing may or may not have by pass valves to the hot water tank and the pump. by pass valves typically make winterizing easier. posting pictures of the areas of concern really helps. good luck. joe from dover.

    New to RVing and Toyota Dolphin

    i believe the valve adjustment is at 60k intervals. you will find this forum a blessing. any question has probably been asked here already, but feel free to ask away. all the people here are helpful and some are very knowledgeable, the "been there, done that", experience is through out any topic. welcome and good luck. joe from dover.
