  1. Well if my calculations are correct we presently have 10,300 members +-.
  2. OK here is the scenario. I have attempted several times to move us to the Hostinger servers. I have failed. Presently we are back on GoDaddy's servers. We may have lost a couple of posts and I sincerely apologize for that. We are going to stay online with GoDaddy for a couple days. The system is currently upgraded to the new software. Hostinger says they can migrate us over. At some point I will have to take us off line again during that migration. Again if you have any issues please post them here. - Greg
  3. We have started the process. Might take me a few days to complete. Presently downloading the board so that I can move it. We will go offline during the move and not come back online until we are sure DNS is correct. At some point I will be disabling the Image Gallery so we don't loose any new uploaded images.
  4. OK I bit the bullet. GoDaddy has eliminated all their free email accounts. Which will actually doubled my costs. So I have decided to move us all to Hostinger. I say all because I also have some personal web sites not just toyotamotorhomes.org being hosted by GoDaddy. This process will take awhile. I have one month before GoDaddy renewal. So be aware that the board might get some down time during the move. I will post here in the news forum with the heads up information when I actually make it happen! My first move will be Harbustan.com which is a WordPress software, being moved to gregharbustan.com. Don't be scared! I hope to loose nothing with the board. But because of the amount of data for the board I may have to take the board offline to move. Guessing maybe a day offline. Wish I could ask for help but it is all on me.
  5. Costs. The site won't change. It would just be moved to a different hosting company. I am still investigating what GoDaddy is up to. Presently they just moved all the email servers to Microsoft 360. Thank you for that offer. I have yet to sit down and compare apples to apples.
  6. Considering changing hosting company. Presently hosted with GoDaddy. Suggestions greatly appreciated! Presently looking at 3, Hostgator, Bluehost and Hostinger. Presently swaying towards Hostinger.
  7. Well here is an update 3 years later! Where we lived in CA (Boulder Creek) every home in our old neighborhood except our old house burned to the ground last summer.
  8. Here is a shower mod to conserve water. Replace your old style shower head and hose with one of these. https://www.homedepot.com/p/American-Standard-Sidespray-and-Hose-for-Kitchen-Faucet-Black-M953670-0170A/205512767 It is a bit tricky to adapt it to your existing valve but it provides a very high pressure spray that greatly reduces the amount of water needed for a shower.
  9. For those big leggo blocks get some cheap floor matts from Walmart. Put them under the blocks if the blocks want to slide.
  10. For rear springs I installed a add a spring. Can't remember but I think it had power brakes. Handling and brakes were never a problem. I could easily cruise at 65 plus and it felt completely stable. An emergency maneuver though might have been a different story. Being turbo charged with an automatic tranny was great on the freeways but sadly at high elevations I found one day that I could not get enough power to pull up on some leveling blocks in reverse low. I could pull forward onto the blocks but not reverse. Just could not get enough rpm to spin up the turbo. Poor turbo engineering on Toyotas part. There were several issues with those turbo 22r engines. Some of the turbo guys have installed different turbos that start to spin as soon as you crack the throttle. Only mods I did was to install a larger diameter down tube and 3 inch exhaust. Never got to test it though at high elevations. I believe Roadmaster has some spring kits for the toyotas. I am running a Roadmaster kit on my 4x4 F150 work truck. The truck is a crew cab with a metal heavy rear work top and a lot of tools. Huge difference.
  11. Lets not forget that a 4x4 is raised making the center of gravity higher which greatly affects drivability. Dual rears help greatly but add stiffer rear springs and good gas shocks. I say dual rears because singles have too much sidewall flex which adds to the "it drives like a boat" scenario. Weight distribution is also key. Pack with most of the weight just in front of the rear axle as low as possible.
  12. Having owned a Sunrader 4x4 I think the fiberglass shell weighs a lot. More than one would expect and more than a typical panel type construction. It would be interesting to know how much just a 18 ft sunrader shell weighs. We weighed ours loaded for a 1 week trip and I was amazed at the number. It was no where near 10K but close to 7k! Good suspension is the key to happiness.
  13. There is a rv stovetop that has a griddle on one side and 2 burners on the other side. That's my plan. https://flairdistribution.com/collections/appliances/products/greystone-rv-burner-grill-combo-flair-distribution?variant=35970172649631
  14. And a few years back I built an antenna platform which can be seen here in the "Communications and Electronics" Forum.
  15. Might also mention the rack your mounts are mounted on is actually a FM/TV antenna and not a cargo rack. Greg K7GPH
