  1. I am considering buying a canvas car port for out Sunrader. It has an AC on the roof. Anyone purchased one of these? What is height/width of the Sunrader. Suggestions? Thanks
  2. I am hitting the river today!  Saw your post and thought I would give you my 2 cents worth.  We get a good amount of rain and snow here so, I decided to cover the roof to prevent water from leaking in.  I have had some issues with that !  I purchased a cloth tarp for mine and I am very pleased with it.  I posted this week on this site that Chicago Canvas is running a sale this entire month with 20% off.  I believe I paid about $120 for mine. The tarp is very well made but it is quite heavy and has large grommets tie downs.  I place a 5 gallon bucket up front and back of the roof and then put the tarp on and cinch it down.  This makes a tent like configuration which allows air to circulate under the tarp. BTW I would not recommend a full RV cover that you see advertised on the Net.  Junk and they last no more than two years. Tight Lines

      Thank you! Keep your tip up!


  3. My motor home will sit over the winter. There will be lots of rain and some freezing and snow. I am considering covering it for the winter. I will be winterizing it and repairing all seals before the deluge hits. Do you cover your Sunrader for the winter? If so what do you use.? Iflyfishinrainandsnow

    Great pics! How much is the ferry from Ketichikan to Prince of Whales Island. If you get to Coffman Cove look up my good friend, the Mayor, Bryce Brucker and tell him Rick sent you. Iflyfishconmialaskamigos
  6. The straight poop on Macerators

    It works great, see video above. I used to have an electrical macerator in my Winnebago View but could not fit one in my 87 Sunrader. Got the Sewer Solution and it works great.
  7. Thank you for your very thoughtful and helpful post! I have also spent a couple of years in my Winnebago View following a similar path to tip of Florida, British Columbia, and to the tip of Baja twice. I plan on taking "Casper" down to Baja in March. I found an amazing bargain that I want to share with you and this group. I found 1,000 Trails and talked them into a 1 year contract including BC, Washington, Oregon and California for $500. Blew my mind. I had calculated on the outside spending $30/night which amounts to a whopping $900/month. Not for everyone I am sure, but with how we will use our RV this is a great find. I appreciate the boondocking and fuel sites, will use them also. The Agency Senior Pass is a must have. Thank you so much! First one is on me!! Iflyfishconmitoyotamigos
  8. The straight poop on Macerators

    Thanks, I have now used the Sewer Solution and it works great!! There is a bit more work than with my old one that was hardwired in the sewer compartment, but it seems to work as well and WAY CHEAPER. Iflyfihswithcleandumptanks

  10. Charge time using truck alternator

    I appreciate all the good thinking here. Thank you for your time and consideration. I have purchased replacement LED bulbs for all lights, save for the florescent bulbs, not sure what to do with those. I did that in my previous motor home and could not believe how much it effected battery power usage! I have also purchased a Yamaha EF1000iS, 900 Running Watts/1000 Starting Watts, Gas Powered Portable Inverter, CARB Compliant. It fits perfectly in my factory carrying box on the back. Simply padded the front and back for security. The Yamaha starts on the first pull and is much quieter than I had anticipated. Iflyelectrified!
  11. '87 Sunrader Rear Tail Light Replacement: LEDs

    Thanks, I found the info I was looking for. I have posted the list of parts above and if anyone wants pics I can provide them. Iflyfishconmiamigoneubie
  12. '87 Sunrader Rear Tail Light Replacement: LEDs

    Thanks, I found the replacement info. These require a different mounting grommet. I need to do replacement for two reasons. Back up lights out, lots of excess sealant on rear taillights, and need to install a rear view camera and this will provide access to wiring, with new screws etc. IflyfishcomWME
