  1. The V6 calls for checking valve clearance every 60,000 miles. I have only heard one person say that when checked they did not need adjusting. He did say he suspected they were adjusted before he bought it.
  2. The ZEP stripper works great. It needs to be mixed at the specified temperature and needs to be kept wet for 8 minutes so keep applying it. After 2 years I stripped mine and reapplied the ZEP. A bit of work but a wax job that lasts 2 years!
  3. I think I would drop by a body or fiberglass, maybe a boat place, and get their opinion, clear coat, failing gel coat, ZEP?????
  4. Tough from a picture, however looks like the rig might have been clear coated?? I would try stripping or sanding an inconspicuous area before doing anything else. Or you could try ZEP on an inconspicuous area and see if it camouflages what ever is there, I do doubt that will work.
  5. I have read a good option for shipping is Greyhound. Never tried it but might want to look into it and report back.
  6. Sign material places have sheet aluminum in various sizes and thickness's. Need to find something close enough to pick up as shipping is expensive. If that is aluminum might want to consider the new aluminum welding products, that can be done with a propane torch. My neighbor has been experimenting with them and they are impressive!
  7. Can't remember details at the moment, there is an old and new Dometic shroud. Both look the same but one is a couple inch's taller!
  8. Holy bat poop Batman, TWENTY SIX DOLLARS! Go to the most expensive hardware store in your area and and buy the appropriate number of pan head 3/4 inch number 10 stainless steel screws and washers and install with them. Save about $22. Plus you can pick your own head style, philipps, torax, robertson. Can drill the holes to install or buy self tapping screws. Or you could buy zinc plated #10 X 3/4 truss head screws, these also come in self tapping. Cheaper but will rust over time. The larger head or washer is to keep the screw from working through the plastic over time.
  9. What a little gem! Toyota is working on a prototype camper, I cannot find the link. Toyzilla
  10. Add Zerk valves and give them a bit of grease on occasion.
  11. TR-544, may require bending which can be done with 2 small open end wrenchs.
  12. I have been messing around with RV's for 20 years. I have seen numerous posts where people have resealed front window and it still leaked so I looked for a video on resealing windows. There are thousands of articles on redoing windows and hundreds of videos. All well intentioned people trying to be helpful but don't have clue! ONE! One video showing bad glazing tape and replacing it. The rubber gasket is a lock not a seal, it does seal but the tape between the glass and the aluminum frame can be the issue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4hyadt95yw Beware You Tube videos!! I removed the window and used a mobile home siding to cover, only available in white so need to paint.
  13. Bought the Specialty Recreation lens from Amazon, piece of crap, lasted less than a year parked in the shade! Made one out of perforated sheet metal.
  14. My floor was intact and not rotted in anyway. It did have some flex when walking on it. I looked all the options over and added a cross brace underneath in the middle of the flex area. Worked well.
  15. Cute little rigs. What I do not like about my Toy is the small holding tanks. Black tank is 26 gallons, grey is 17.5 and fresh was 20 gallons, I put in a 25 gallon fresh tank. I would like the option of larger tanks. Also the mini fridge is something I do not want to live with. I can put things in fridge that do not need refrigeration. If I were in the market for new, I would look elsewhere.
