  1. Has anyone else installed different seats in their rig? My seats in my Warrior are in pristine condition but they are not very comfortable for a long drive. Would like to find what other seats (such as the civic seats) would fit. Thanks
  2. This is a really good way to have a backup fuel tank. I, too, removed my less than stellar Generac generator and have an open space right now. Might look into doing this.
  3. Can you post pictures of this? Thanks.
  4. Do you have information on how the led light installation affects cruise control. Is is somehow hooked into the activation of the brake lights? How do you fix this. We have a 93 warrior and are planning the brake led upgrade. Already completed the clearance lights. (BTW-love not having to hassle with burnt out incandescent bulbs and water in the fixtures).
  5. Great blog!!! Really enjoyed it. On my 93 Warrior, the previous owner extended the frame with (believe it or not) wood. The wood (I don't know the species) is cut to fit up inside of the frame rails and is bolted in. There is a wooden platform built on that (made with some type of 1 x 4s) and painted the whole thing. He bolted an aluminum box to platform. I have not put much weight in the box but it is good place for grill, and other light weight, bulky items. I probably need to address this situation before I go cross country. Only been used for 16,000 total miles so I guess that it hasn't had enough impacts from road bumps to crack anything.
  6. Front shocks in place now!! One of the most tedious "easy" jobs that I have ever done. Those bottom bolts just did not want to go in right. Also, the KYBs had a slightly different bolt slot on the bottom of the shocks. I was not comfortable just using the old hardware. I added one size larger washer to each one. I hope that it holds ok. Oh yeah, had to grind the top of the old shock of on the passenger side. The flat ended stud broke in my hands. Nothing is ever is as easy as it is imagined to be. ? It doesn't ride like a Cadillac...But it does ride like a big, underpowered box on wheel with brand spanking new shocks! I am happy.
  7. Clearance lights complete. IF I do anything else on the cab over I will make up a scaffold. I had to perform aerobatics to keep from denting the hood. Also, the UPS guy brought my rear shocks -KYBs and I installed them today. Before picture of clearance and After. After of rear shock and a pic of the spent KYBs that were on it. Onwards to front shock (if they ever get here) and new tires and inspection. Plus a mountain of small items.
  8. The box has not given me a moments trouble as far as dragging. Myrtle Beach, SC Ocean Lakes. My rear end sits high if the air bags are inflated correctly. I am more worried about the shocks on the front. I feel too much from the road. I installed a new steering dampener but I would like a little more shock dampening. The shocks are original equipment. They look good but I bet they gave up the ghost a long time ago.
  9. In the last week we have been busy readying the Winnie for our trip in September. New tailpipe, New cupholders for the galley table (the new ones were 3/16" bigger than the old ones-jigsaw time), New fiberglass backed vinyl for the galley and for the bathroom (Who thought that carpet was a good idea for the bathroom in the first place?), AND New rear clearance lights (leds). I did not have enough daylight to install the front lights tonight. Next on the agenda: Front clearance lights, New KYB shocks, Installation of 4 new Hankook RA18 tires and reinstallation of toilet with new gasket to the black tank. I know that there is something else that I am supposed to do but it slips my mind. A few pics. You know the old saying...It didn't happen without pictures...
  10. I think that is what we will do. I will continue to investigate a potty that makes sense to me. Don't have time to mess around a lot with this as we are going to Ocean Lakes for 10 days in 6 weeks. I have "long way to go and a short time to get there".
  11. My valve is a ball valve. It just does not make sense to me. How can you ever keep it clean? There will always be a residue in the body of the toilet. The "residue" should be in the black tank.
  12. I have a potty question for all you potty experts. ?Little background...I pulled the Thetford Model AM IV HI toilet out of our rig today to replace the original (yuck) carpeting in the bathroom. I was really surprised when I flipped the throne over and realized that their was a big cavity inside the toilet. I had always thought that there was a tube from the toilet valve that led directly into the black tank. How can this design fly? There are nooks and crannies and places for all kinds of nasty things to hang around in! Yuck.My question is this....Is there any RV toilet that is configured to NOT have a cavity between the toilet flush valve and black tank but to, instead, have a tube that connects the valve and black tank?
