  1. Was having issues with my starter so I rebuilt it. New contacts and all. Bench tested it and works great. Reinstalled and now will not work consistently. Thought the battery was weak so I bought a new one, from 2016. Same issue. It starts right up with a jump pack? Thinking it's got to be a ground or something similar but wanted to see if others had the same issue. Toyota V6 3.0l 3VZE
  2. I didn't use any adhesive. The bottom layer of the floor, which is underneath the RV is a thin layer of aluminum. Once I put the wood in place I had to wedge the crossbeams in place. They were a tight fit and probably would have stayed in place without welding.
  3. We like to listen to the radio when camping and inside the RV. Using a SPDT switch allows you to turn on the radio when the ignition is off and key removed. You can also leave the radio so that it only turns on with the ignition (normal operation).
  4. 1991 Warrior. One of the previous owners had water damage from the overhead AC area leaking all over the place. I repaired the roof and ceiling but the floor was still soft. When you actually look at the flooring there isn't really much there other than a very thin layer of aluminum on the bottom and plywood on top of it. Not sure of the plywood thickness? The issue with repairs is that the camper is assembled in stages at the factory and it's a challenge to tear out sections of a 4x8 sheet or larger underlayment, mine still has carpeting. I decided to repair from below by strengthening using 3/4" plywood coated with oil based kilz and 3/4" square steel tubing welded to the frame. The difference was noticable right away, so far so good.
  5. I installed a simple one like this and it has worked for me so far. If I used my RV more often I'd probably get something with Bluetooth. I determine battery charge state and condition based on voltage. I don't have any real power drains going other than a fantastic fan. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dual-USB-Car-Cigarette-Lighter-Socket-Splitter-Power-Adapter-Charger-Outlet-12V-/132225301652?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286
  6. I've been using a smart charger to keep my house battery charged up and it works well. I disconnected the old outdated system because it would both overcharge deep cycle batteries as well as mess up all of the led lighting I've installed. It's a NOCO 3.5 A and it came with a pigtail that I could install right to the power distribution block. I take it out for other batteries when not in use. Works well.
  7. I just received the aluminum stacker jacks tonight from Amazon. They are super lightweight and small enough to fit underneath the RV sofa. Perfect for what I'll be using them for. Now onto the next project of floor reinforcement and installing poly bushings in the rear leaf springs.
  8. Thanks Linda. I knew you would have an answer for us.
  9. I currently do the same exact thing. I've used boards to drive into for small adjustment but a few times when I've boondocked I've had an issue.
  10. Leveler ramps/blocks, scissor jacks, 4 ton hydraulic bottle jacks. Curious to what works best or what doesn't work well? What's your experience?
  11. Thanks for the reply. Thinking I'll do the same. Did you end up using everything included?
  12. I replaced my bushings with some Moog that I got from the auto store but they were never right and I had to cut down the overall length to make them fit. I've done poly in my 61 ford. Out of curiosity where did you find the poly and how much were they? Part number? Thanks Matt
  13. Sorry I haven't been on here in a bit. Glad you figured out the problem with the pump. Usually something easy but not always. I think I'd choose electrical over some of the other structural issues I've had with my warrior honestly. Water damage is a lot more work.
