  1. The breaking did improve some, and having just one spare is nice.
  2. I did the conversion. I think I paid 150 for it all including 3 rims. One think you will need that may have been overlooked is the dust covers for the rotors the 5 lug covers you currently have won’t fit. The last photo show the 5 lug dust cover and the 6 lug. Easy job really
  3. I had a loud clunk in my front suspension just a few weeks ago it turned out to be my front sway bar bushings. Easy fix may want to check yours.
  4. I have the two 6v with a 130watt solar setup and a Renogy Rover MPPT charge controller and I’ve never ran out of power. It’s a must have if you ask me

  6. I use the 2000k watt predator generator from HF works good and pretty dang quiet. Powers AC and microwave but not at the same time lol. But that’s no biggy.
  7. I’ve been going to Batteries Plus for years now if you were closer I’d let you or anyone use my discount. After the discount it’s usually not much more than the rest and you get 3 year free replacement and it’s usually a Duracell.
  8. oh just to add If i recall correctly we started out using great stuff spray foam which worked good and the metal spay gun made it go on nice, but i don't think the loctite spray foam comes in a can to use with the gun it has its own straw. either will work but loctite did hold stronger and you dont need a gun with that stuff.
  9. You're gonna wanna get one of those spray foam guns it's a handheld metal gun and we found that loctite spray foam is the best at adhering the fiberglass siding to the new wood sticks and we also adhered the new Styrofoam insuallation to the fiber glass wall with the loctite foam as well.
  10. I went with a Pioneer Avic-850BT with built in Navigation and the Pioneer backup camera hard wired. I have the rear bathroom model. and put my camera above my back window. ran the wire from outside into my bathroom over head cabinet to the closet and out the bottom then ran it to the front up through the Trans sifter. I love mine. I tied it into my reverse lights so it comes on automatically. I also ran PIAA fog lights in the back that turns on automatically when i put it in revers or hit the switch for backing up at night. I love it makes backing up 10x easier.
  11. went for another 20 mile ride yesterday evening and the rig ran great again no issues. At this point im going to say it was air in the fuel line/rail or maybe one of the connectors to the TPS or injector something was wet not making a good connection. Im keeping my fingers crossed it doesn't ever happen again.
  12. so the floor isn't just a solid piece of plywood. its two thinner pieces with foam sandwiched between them. considering i've been in your same shoes prior. if the floor is in great shape i wouldn't mess with you you wont get it that good again. if you need to redo the wood along the bottom, what i would do is pull everything all the exterior wall or as much as possible. i would then remove the J-rails along the bottom and up the side leaving the top attached and i would simply lift the wall SOME to expose the bottom edge. the reason you dont want to remove the whole wall is its two pieces seam
  13. I have a 85/86 Dolphin and i ended up going with a Dometic bag awning. for a couple reasons. its lighter then the big metal awnings. its easier to install. (at least mine was) I also found mine brand new on craigslist for 45 bucks in the box still. Its been installed now for a good year and its nice to have and when its put away i dont even know its there. they come in many different sizes and colors. just my two cents.
