  2. my 87 dolphon pict at left is model 400 22rec automatic has been fine for us . had 67000 org miles when i bought it 7000 500 dollors. i dont use the overdrive . and some back country roads i shift manual like a stick. prefere stick have a sr5 4wdxtra cab truck as well same power plant . the moter home is the only auto i have had of 7 toyotas 2 moterhomes . keep the four cyclinder reved up . but not over reved . luging kills the engine and trans by heat . national rv put on xtra trans cooler .never had a 6 and dont want or need one for me . 4 in a row is the way too go. when you buy old use
  3. yes i am sorry i forgot to say yes you will have to raise it . but also need it raised then you nee d a jack to raise and lower the tank. my freands have a farm shoup they had some masiv e heavy wood ramps i was able to put the rear tires on . used a big floor jack too lower and raise the tank i did not unhook it all the way just stuff hoses down from fill hole h ock on tank use new clamps .
  4. i have replaced the filler hose and the small vent hose .on my 87 dolphon . and previous 1978 minmax . in both cases the main filler hose was dry rot and craked . gas fumes inside rv could make a boom boom . shure was at the least sickning . no special tools do not use raderater hose gas will eat it out . that is why this neoprene fuel tank hose sold by the inch . not by foot bought mine at napa auto parts . the modern hose is better made . these tanks have drain plugs on the bottom . you need a good size floor jack .to loor the tank up and down . unhook tank unhook hoses from tank . unscrew

  13. some folks recommend to never flush the trans. just change the fluid. flushing a old trans can cause it to fail by plugging it up with all the loosened sludge. then you have to rebuild what was a werking trans.
