My Toyota Motorhome

  1. Hey everyone, I recently bought a 1986 Travel Master which doesn't have a generator. I'd like to have electricity while on the road so I'm wanting to install a generator but have no idea about generators in the slightest. What do I need to know about choosing/installing a generator?
  2. Hi everyone. My last post was me about to get a dolphin toy, well I'm the pround owner of a 1984 stick toyota dolphin in decent shape. I did the true 1 ton 6 lugs sucessfuly, thanks to you, appreciate the help! The generator I have in it still works, but I'm changing it's oil, fuel filter, air filter and sparkplug. I have it's original manual and I've looked everywhere on the web and still waiting dometic for a answer. Any ideas where can I get a air filter ( # 007-42766) or a DIY filter that I could just remove the old cloth filter and use it's metal casing. I think it must be fireproof, any idea of material and is there a fireproof spray that won't clog a new filter? I heard the generator could maybe be made by onan or generac (more chances). On my manual it's written SB 86990-103 AND PART nO. 007-60991. If you need photos of the filter, let me know! Thanks a lot!
  3. Good Evening, I bought a 1985 Toyota dolphin and I am terrified of propane and get extreme anxiety being around it. I do not want to run it at all. I bought a suburban 6 gal h20 heater and seen a hybrid get that I bought as well so when it arrives and gets installed I can run it through using electricity. my question is can I run it off the battery only? I am also shopping around for a generator so when I'm parked outside a campground I can power it as well as my tv and laptop, microwave. My fridge also can run on battery and, I do not plan on using the stove at all I have a two burner hot plate for cooking. what wattage is necessary to run these items? The converter box that came with it is small really old and small .what is the best current one to use for a tv, dvd, phone charge?.

    Roof Top Ac Unit

    When I got the 1990 Itasca 321RB, it had the old roof top AC. That winter it leaked, so I removed it and installed a powered roof vent with fan instead. Years gone by, I feel like having the AC again. Here are my concerns: the Coleman Mach 1 PS (power saver) 11k BTU fits the bill as my Honda eu2000i can run it reliably (total cost ~800). Issue is the roof sagged a little bit after bearing the old AC on top of it for over 20 years. I could raise the lips of the roof around the 14"x14" opening so water won't get in but water will be standing around the AC when it rains. Any idea how to mitigate this?

    Onan Generator 1986 Toyota Odyssey

    So.... RV repairman says our Onan Microlite 2.8 GENSET needs a new carb. Generator runs but has a pattern of fast then slow then fast then slow. Anything we can do about it instead of buying a new carb? We have it in our 1986 Toyota Odyssey we love!
  6. http://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/rvs/4355722468.html guy says starts but won't stay running might be a good steal if you want to take a chance with fixing carb.. also was remote switch w/ harness that's a plus for the $$$ Im thinking of buying to fix and resale if I can see it run/stall in person....

  8. Hi! I'm Andy and I just bought my 1990 Sea-Breeze. I paid $4400 for a 1990 with 73k miles and other than some water damage that needs to be repaired, I think I did OK. I'd like to know what you think too so I started a blog. Please visit and weigh in on this. I've never taken on a project of this size but the cost savings seem to be worth it. I hope so. I think this is the kind of project you hate to do - until it is all done and you can reap the rewards. Here is a link to my new blog page: 90seabreeze.wordpress.com I've already replaced all the tires, done the differential and transmission flush and fill, oil change and all new belt as well as registering the vehicle and getting my tag. I'm sooo ready to go camping but now I have a roof to repair.. What is anyone's opinion about the following: ROOFING REPAIR I see there are a couple EPDM liquid / self leveling products and after I remove and replace whatever is in poor shape I will want as maintenance free a roof as possible. Has anyone had any experiences they can share or recommendations as to products they would recommend? What about Liquid Roof? I saw this guy's roof repair video and he has given me some confidence to do the same. Thoughts? Where do I start rebuilding the affected walls and ceiling? Rebuild the sides of the cab-over first? Thoughts? HEAD GASKET There is a sticker on my fan blade shroud that says "timing belt replaced at 55k miles." Any way to tell if the head-gasket was replaced or if it needs to be? How can I determine this? POWER and AC and A/C IN TRANSIT There doesn't appear to be very many AC outlets around the cabin. Besides under the dinette, I don't know that I saw a second one. I guess most people get by with inverters while they drive if they are needed? Any recommendations as to which ones are good and where to install them in the cabin? Should I run a dedicated line from under the hood of the cab? I have a 400 watt one. Maybe I will install it up front. Can I install one in the front and one in the back? What do you use/do? What about cooling the cabin during a warm summer drive? I am sure the dash A/C does little for the people in the back... AC/DC TVs There is an abundance of 12V HDTVs now (albeit generic names) in the small - 24" form factors. Seems since the cabin is mostly DC that this would be handy. Anyone have any recommendations? LEAKY EXHAUST / MANIFOLD? I have what sounds like a little exhaust/manifold leak. Is this common? Are there certain areas that fail more than others and is this a costly repair? Thanks for looking! Andy
  9. The guy I bought the 1983 New Horizon from asserted this one is freshly rebuilt, and there's cause to believe he's telling the truth. It's not bolted down and all the wiring is disconnected. But after getting it home, lifting it enough to see behind it, [feels as though it weighs 100#] I found myself asking myself what the function of it is with regards to the overall MH. Is the generator just there to provide power for the AC unit? There's what appears to be 100# of refrigeration AC mounted on the sagging roof. The guy claims it's more-or-less new, and it appears to be. But it's a lot of weight up there, and I've lived a lot of years without AC the last decade-or-so. Thinking of pulling it off there, plugging the hole before doing a major re-sealing/coating job on the roof. If all that generator does is power the AC I'm wondering whether I mightn't live without it, as well. The only thing I can think of that might justify a generator of that size unless it's doing something else, would be operating power tools I might be carrying with me. Which I might consider important enough to justify it. Thoughts, observations, experiences invited. Thanks in advance. Jack
