  1. My two cents worth. Guess I mean two gas cans worth. They each hold 2.5 gal. Only used them two times, both in Alaska between some long runs between fuel stations. I can run 200 miles safely on the original tank. Usually I need a over night break by then. Darrel
  2. Linda nice that you remember us, we remember you also-in a good way. We encountered this road on a trip to Yellowknife, northwest territory Canada in 2008. Alaska was 2010 and 2017. We have been in some predicaments, found our way out, and enjoy the memories. Darrel
  3. No we only went down although it is a gravel road all the way. The last picture is of the outhouse at a campground in Hagensborg, 10$ per night, free fire wood, and all the ripe cherriers we could eat. Can't beat that. Darrel
  4. Chilcotin Bella Coola highway #20 British Columbia. Darrel
  5. Give this a go. We went down this road in 2008 in a 84 Dolphin. Going west from Williams lake, bc to Hagensborg and Bella Coola. It was fun, first geer all the way. Darrel
  6. Tika, Thank you for this article. Very informative. I have forwarded to all my family. Darrel
  7. Hi Tika, I have been trying to contact you by phone for some time. Keep getting a message that subscriber is not in service. I am wanting to attend your rally in Quartzite. Please give me a call. Darrel at (home 541-479-7127 or cell 541-727-1544)
  8. Forgot to mention my motorhome is a 1994 Winnebago Warrior the same as your Spirit.
  9. This is how I solved the same problem. You do not have to replace all of the water lines. Flare-it fittings will fit the old gray water lines perfectly. Get them at local plumbing store. Darrel
  10. Indede you are correct, its for ducting. Don't have room to route ducting or I don't want to give up the storage space. Darrel
  11. Mine has 91,376 miles no major repair just maintenance. Did have the valves adjusted at 73k, the exhaust definitely needed it. It runs very well even pulling a 1500# boat. No oil burning. Darrel
  12. Did this last year some time. We were running away from the smoke and heat. This year no smoke so far. Setting up camp for 4-5 weeks, fishing, crabbing, and not mowing the lawn. The boat will be tagging along as we did last year. We'll be on Ten Mile lake, Lakeside, Or. Anyone in the area stop by and saw "Hello". Darrel and Gun
  13. The valves under the shower pan to the left of your water heater should both be closed in order to pressurize the water system. they most likely will be leaking by now or soon will be. One is a drain for the water heater which drains above the gray holding tank. I had to replace all of my valves. This is the new-larger water tank I installed.
  14. Going to La Pine, Or for the 4th. Frontier Days kick off on the 3rd thru the 6th. Wondering if there is anyone in the area we could meet up with. I know this is short notice, we just decided to do this yesterday. Picture is two years old. Darrel
  15. Back in 2008 I did a road trip to Yellowknife, Northwest Territory, GAS was $7.48 Canadian for 4 liters. Had a $96.00 fill up. Darrel
  16. Hi Mark,

    Just saw that you are selling your motorhome. My wife and I are interested in more info.

    Floor plan, how old are the tires?, any leaks now or in the past, any new parts on the suspension?, transmission service?, engine maintenance, tune up, plugs cap & rotor plug wires, does the refrigerator, stove, furnace, water heater, water pump all work?.   I've been around these motorhomes since 2007 and over 100,000 miles. 

    We would like pictures e-mailed to us.

    Thanks Darrel

      I have many pictures of Grannie on my previous post if you can access them. I’m presently camping in her so no access to a computer but will be home Friday. Extensive mechanical work has been done. She’s turn key. best to call me 3309284116 to much info to list 

  17. Make sure you have a sewer hose connected before you attempt to pull on that screw-bolt. If not stand back. Darrel
  18. Are your tanks full? The Kitchen sink dumps into the gray tank. Darrel
  19. Read my earlier post about the flasher I installed from auto zone. I use cruise control all the time, no problem with it turning off when I step on the breaks. This flasher flashes faster than the original but I wouldn't call it hyper flash. Darrel
  20. When I read this post I had to ask, Did you install the seals in the correct direction? If not they will leak. Darrel
  21. Like Linda said "the air bags come nowhere close to the fuel tank". Yes the tail pipe runs along the left side and exits behind the rear wheel. I remounted the spare wheel to its original position. Had to rewrought the propane lines. I did this because I installed a larger poop tank. Darrel
  22. I'm not sure I like this internet tracking. Just got a feed from Walmart about the Bargman light. $50 free shipping for one light. I paid $50 for two. If you go this rout save the plastic mounting frame between the body and light. Its no longer available. I sanded and painter it. Yes they are LED. Darrel
  23. I have a 94 Warrior also. these are the parts I have installed which you inquired about. The air bags I used are a bit of work to install, but anything different than what was there will have different install points. Glad I did, the old ones leaked. Go to a muffler shop and have a tailpipe fabricated. You may find out the rest of the exhaust system is also shot. The tail lights I got at AutoZone for about $50, they cost more now, that was 5 years ago. They are Bargman part #47-84-005. I also installed a new flasher so the turn signal lights won't hyper flash. Hope this helps. Darrel
  24. I posted this 2 years ago. My furnace would not ignite, everything worked but no fire. I built a manometer to check the gas pressure, it was good. Decides to pull the burner out and take a look. This is what I found, burned up in the flame area. Installed a new burner and it works great. I bought this furnace new in 2007 and used it a lot. 50,000 miles in a Dolphin then in my now Warrior total of 80,000 miles or so. Now another 20,000 miles and it works great.It burned the burner up. Just throwing this out.
  25. Looks like my post didn't go through. What I said, my Warrior v6 gets very warm above the transmission area. Do not have a cat any more, no emissions here. So the heat is from the transmission.Darrel
