  1. Any LED setup is usually plug and play. Easier to replace the entire unit than attempt repairs. The units I purchased are completely encapsulated. They are designed for use on boat trailers and withstand water absorption. The construction is actually pretty heavy duty. I’ve looked at other LED setups, these are far superior to anything else I’ve seen. Only time will tell on longevity, but cheap enough to replace if necessary.
  2. Linkitom 75 LED Truck Tail Light Bar, Super Bright 12v Turn Signal Brake Reverse Taillight for Truck Boat Snowmobile Trailer Pickup RV Camper UTV UTE Vans (2PCS) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QC6K8SD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_PPKS8JGNP22F5NS9EQAK?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 I bought these about 6 months ago. They work great and are very bright. They’re set up for a separate turn light like most Toyota’s have. Very pleased with quality and price.
  3. The caption stated the model but I didn’t bother to record it. It showed up on my FB news feed. Went back to try and find it.....no luck.☹️ Edit: found the info. It’s a Tillitson travel coach. Found the link. All kinds of neat stuff. https://www.facebook.com/Vintage-Automobiles-Rare-Vehicles-317781875353774/
  4. False alarm. Old ad.
  5. Creative use of older RV.
  6. Could be a weak battery. Many times those blower motors can draw up to 9 amps on startup. Just because you got voltage doesn’t mean you have the amperage. Try a different fully charged battery and see if that helps.
  7. Going strictly by the diagram, the glass appears to be encased within the frame. The only way I see it being removed or adjusted is by the same steps I mentioned earlier. Other than that, extreme caulking.
  8. If it’s a side sliding window the only way to remove the glass panels is to remove the entire frame assembly from the coach. There should be a soldered joint somewhere on the frame. This joint has to be separated allowing you to expand the frame enough to slide the glass out. This is how I had to remove mine.
  9. It’s just a standard Toyota pickup. Any windshield shop will carry and install. Anything mechanical will be a standard Toyota item.
  10. It’s sounding like you may of had a grey water tank that was removed. Does the pvc pipe appear factory or perhaps extended after the grey tank was removed. Is there sufficient under coach area to install a grey tank? If yes, that’s your next logical step. Unfortunately there are not many of your vintage motorhomes left alive to look at and compare. Linda is a great resource. I’m sure she’s researching this issue as we speak. 🙂
  11. First off, determine if your grey water does in fact discharge directly onto the ground. Could there have been a grey water tank that was removed by a PO leaving just the plumbing? Linda’s idea of a double compartment black tank should also be investigated. Im my case, I had only a kitchen sink to deal with. My unit is so small it had no bathroom from the factory. Knowing I was going to gut the entire inside (including the kitchen) I wasn’t concerned about grey water drainage. With today’s concern about the environment, I’m sure you would have people screaming at you as soon as the w
  12. My 1979 came with a gravity drain for the grey water. Back in the day I guess it was allowed by code. Pour some water into the shower pan and see if it exits outside through the pipe opening.
  13. Linda S. Makes this site the premier Toyota motorhome go to resource. Thank you Linda !!!!!!!!
  14. Very popular in the early 70’s. Screen shot of exploded view attached.
