  1. Hi Ernie! I have an 86 Sunrader as well. I went to change out my pads and rotors a few weeks ago and somehow ordered the wrong parts as well. After some additional research, I ordered the following off Rock Auto and they fit perfectly (these are for the front only, not the rear btw). Pads - Part # CE 102.03030 Rotors - Part # CE 121.44035 Can't guarantee these will work with your Toy, but they worked for mine. Good luck! Amy
  2. Holy.... My cheeks tightened and lifted off my seat just reading this! Glad you're okay and didn't crash!!
  3. Hi All, I was just browsing Craigslist and saw this listing for a 1983 Toyota Dolphin for sale. I don't know anything about it or the owner, however I thought I'd post it here for anyone who might be interested. https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/rvs/d/fairfax-1983-toyota-dolphin/6985449081.html
  4. Appreciate the suggestions, Linda! I'll try the screwdriver method this weekend and if it doesn't work, I'll give the RV place idea a go. Thanks!! 😃
  5. Appreciate the advice, Maineah! I took a look this morning and couldn't find any hand cranks anywhere in the rig. Nor do I see anywhere on the awning where a hand crank would attach... There are 2 little circular tubes (one on each end), but they're really really teeny - like the size of a pinky nail. I took some close up pics (see attached) this morning of the awning and see it says it is an A&E Systems awning - which I researched - and it seems to be a Dometic awning? Perhaps they were bought out by Dometic? No idea. Anywho, I'm still stumped here on how to operate. R
  6. Hi All! So my Sunrader came with an awning, however I can't for the life of me figure out how it works.... Can anyone help me/explain how in the heck it operates? I'm at a loss. Thanks!
  7. Here’s some pics I grabbed this morning. Pardon the mess, I’m smack dab in the middle of demo. As you can see, I also have the fuel hose in the same spot - totally bizarre. I’m not sure why it’s like this, but if possible, I want to get it out of the camper and put under the camper. I didn’t try moving the captains chair over yet, but I’ll give it a go later. Has anyone ever come across something like this before? Any ideas on what to do about it?
  8. hahah I think you did I think my dinette area did have bench seats - but the previous owner had already removed them, so I can't be 100% positive. But I will say that I did have a rather large dinette table that I removed 2 weeks ago. So that makes me think it had the bench seats. That table was big and heavy. Currently, though I have a captains chair (what I think you're calling a lounge chair?) in the nook to the right of the kitchen. My Sunrader didn't come with a sofa on the driver's side. Instead, it had an additional large closet - then the kitchen - then a captains chair - th
  9. @jetalkington make sure to wear gloves when applying the 40 volume developer... it can burn ya if exposed to skin too long
  10. Looks like yours. No door on mine - though mine does look a bit newer. I’m thinking a previous owner replaced it at one time.... perhaps did a repair or modification because I noticed there is a leak when I filled up at gas stations bringing it home. I had to fill up real slowly and I saw some fuel drip while filling up - perhaps a hose or elbow or something isn’t angled right? I don’t know. Haven’t really looked into it yet. On my list of things to do.
  11. I have the same model as you, @jetalkington -- where there is the rear bath, the kitchen on the driver's side, and the fridge on the passenger's side right slightly forward of the entry door - then slightly forward of that is the dinette area. My gas tank fill is almost exactly where yours is - directly behind the passenger door. When I get home today, I'll take a few pics and show you where everything is located on mine. 🙂

    Hi Linda, I agree completely about the kindness of the owner of this site. I’ve learned so much the short while I’ve been here. As someone who manages websites for a living, I know from experience that it takes a whole lot of time and money to do what he’s been doing! Wish I could take the guy out for dinner or something to show my appreciation!! Regarding the HTTP status of the site, I was just explaining the facts of what it means, not telling anyone what they must or must not do. Personally, I have no problem with interacting on this site even though it’s HTTP. 😊

    Hi Linda, I see the "Not Secure" warning in my Chrome browser and in my Safari browser (when on my iPhone). In addition, if for example, you're on the Firefox browser you might not see any warning, however if you click on the little "i" to the direct left of the URL, you'll see that it shows the website connection is not secure due to the website not being HTTPS. Also, sometimes in place of showing a warning you might see a browser show a lock icon with a red slash through it. That means the same thing as the Chrome or Safari "Not Secure" warning. As for the member that complained ab

    Hi Fred, I work on websites every day (my 9-5er). Historically, websites have used the HTTP protocol - as this site currently does - "http://toyotamotorhome.org". For the past few years now, most websites have been transitioning over from HTTP to HTTPS. HTTPS provides additional security to the user of the website - i.e., helps protect information sent and received on the website and helps to protect information that could potentially be stolen. On websites that have not made the transition to HTTPS, most browsers now show that "Not Secure" warning. Note that this warning
  15. A girl can wish, can't she? I fully understand the benefits of propane, however I don't want it on my rig. In regards to the Bosch water heater I mentioned above, it is not tankless. Also, I plan on having way more than 150w of solar. BTW, I didn't ask about a dorm fridge - I have a dometic 3-way currently - may upgrade to something like this - https://www.amazon.com/Dometic-CFX50W-Electric-Powered-Freezer/dp/B072MLT6QW/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1521424864&sr=1-1&keywords=dometic+cfx-50&linkCode=sl1&tag=ghfridgespreadsheet-20&linkId=69c42d0
