My Toyota Motorhome


  1. Saw the honda-refit give me the idea to move forward and here is my little project. http://toyotamotorhome.org/forums/index.php?/topic/9948-honda-genset-refit/ Just drove my warrior back from welding shop and my 92 Warrior now could fit the Honda EU2000i which should able to power my Roof AC (9200 BTU) But welding shop did not enlarge it big enough so I will need to find different way to put additional fuel tank somewhere Also got the exhaust extension from ebay and welded to the back of the hondaEU2000i. See some Before and After pictures and the exhaust extension.
  2. [oops new thread, not reply] Hi there - newbie here. I'm looking at a nearby 1986 Mini Cruiser at what seems a decent price (6K; needs new engine), but it doesn't have a generator?? It does have a big box on the tail end - is that where a generator can go? ~$4K to add one? Thanks so much - Sam in Boston
  3. Hey , I recently bought a 1986 Travel Master which doesn't have a generator. Trying to figure out the BTU on ac unit and and what generator should I buy. Does any one know how many BTU this unit has and if the Ryobi 2300 generator will be enough?
  4. With hose attached to the bottom nipple no gas drains from hose. Gas only drains from the screw hole if screw is Totally removed. Should it drain from the hose at the nipple?. I may have to install a valve, on off for gas line.
  5. I am looking to purchase a generator that will power the rooftop ac, fridge, cpap machine, small tv and some electronics. I have installed a new bumper shelf to hold the generator, but I need some advice since I am not in the market to get an Onan (too expensive). I was hoping to plug in the 30 amp cord into the generator thanks, Jon
  6. Hi All, New to the Forum and i would have posted in the classifieds, but that section isn't loading for me. Apologies if i violated a forum rule. I purchased my 1990 Toyota Americana in March of 2019. It had a water leak in the back where the fiberglass and subfloor separated and let water in. This was hidden by the carpet under the bathroom sink when we purchased it. Upon repairing, I had disconnected the generator, removed it and began on repairs to generator box as well. The fuel line to the generator leaked overnight and when I returned to the rig the next day and opened the generat
  7. Hi, I recently got an 18' Sunrader from 1984 and I'm wondering if it would be possible to build in a rooftop AC that is powered by an internal generator. Does anyone know where the generator could be located on the inside? Are there any alternatives? I'm not sure I want to have a rack on the back bumper with an external generator chained to it. I understood that there is not enough space on the roof to power the AC with solar panels? I'm totally new to motorhomes and travelling in a RV. I had initially planned to drive from San Francisco to Chicago, going through the South Arizona,
  8. I've recently read some reviews of new(er) Propane Inverter Generators, but haven't seen much written about use in RVs. It seems like something that with a little bit of gas fitting work can be a easier, cleaner, and quieter solution that the traditional gas generator. This isn't an imminent project, I'm just curious if anyone has any experience with this yet.
  9. I hope this hasn't been covered already, if so I apologize...Trying to narrow down the value of add-ons, in looking for a Sunrader I'm not finding any with generators. Did any get built with a generator? If so, what is a figure I should use for the value of a generator on a Sunrader? Is a generator really worth it (used a lot), if so can I get a portable that's worthwhile or should I try to get one built into the RV? Thanks!
  10. anyone have good or bad things to say about: https://www.costco.com/Firman-1050W-Running--1300W-Peak-Gas-Generator.product.100367461.html or https://www.costco.com/A-IPower-1600W-Running--2000W-Peak-Yamaha-Powered-Gas-Inverter-Generator.product.100343958.html
  11. Hey everyone, I recently bought a 1986 Travel Master which doesn't have a generator. I'd like to have electricity while on the road so I'm wanting to install a generator but have no idea about generators in the slightest. What do I need to know about choosing/installing a generator?
  12. Hi everyone. My last post was me about to get a dolphin toy, well I'm the pround owner of a 1984 stick toyota dolphin in decent shape. I did the true 1 ton 6 lugs sucessfuly, thanks to you, appreciate the help! The generator I have in it still works, but I'm changing it's oil, fuel filter, air filter and sparkplug. I have it's original manual and I've looked everywhere on the web and still waiting dometic for a answer. Any ideas where can I get a air filter ( # 007-42766) or a DIY filter that I could just remove the old cloth filter and use it's metal casing. I think it must be fireproof, an
  13. Hey everybody! New to this forum and loving all the information on here! My boyfriend and I recently bought an 89' Toyota Dolphin and we've been doing some serious renovations. So our main problem now is that our generator won't run the ac unit (which is a concern for us because we have a long haired hyperactive dog). Anyways, so the thing is it starts up the ac, runs for maybe 5 minutes and then the ac kicks off but the generator continues to run. I've been reading something about a hard start capacitor working but would like to get some opinions/suggestions/what worked for you, anything real
  14. Good Evening, I bought a 1985 Toyota dolphin and I am terrified of propane and get extreme anxiety being around it. I do not want to run it at all. I bought a suburban 6 gal h20 heater and seen a hybrid get that I bought as well so when it arrives and gets installed I can run it through using electricity. my question is can I run it off the battery only? I am also shopping around for a generator so when I'm parked outside a campground I can power it as well as my tv and laptop, microwave. My fridge also can run on battery and, I do not plan on using the stove at all I have a two burner
  15. Bought my 94 Warrior without a generator. Thought my home generator (Honda EU2000i) would work, but it's too big to fit in the Toyota compartment. Any suggestions for the best generator to buy?
  16. When I got the 1990 Itasca 321RB, it had the old roof top AC. That winter it leaked, so I removed it and installed a powered roof vent with fan instead. Years gone by, I feel like having the AC again. Here are my concerns: the Coleman Mach 1 PS (power saver) 11k BTU fits the bill as my Honda eu2000i can run it reliably (total cost ~800). Issue is the roof sagged a little bit after bearing the old AC on top of it for over 20 years. I could raise the lips of the roof around the 14"x14" opening so water won't get in but water will be standing around the AC when it rains. Any idea how to mitigate
  17. So.... RV repairman says our Onan Microlite 2.8 GENSET needs a new carb. Generator runs but has a pattern of fast then slow then fast then slow. Anything we can do about it instead of buying a new carb? We have it in our 1986 Toyota Odyssey we love!
  18. Hi all, First post here, although I've been a guest lurker for a while. Finally picked up my 'new' 87 Odyssey today, so first time proud owner and newly fledged member of the Toy motorhome family. I've spent a while researching the vehicle and it certainly fits the bill for my requirements - I feel comfortable with the purchase, price and condition. And so on to the list of changes, desires and general time-vampire projects... First up is the need for a generator. The vehicle did at one time have an onan, it has the starter switch / setup inside the home and everything 'pre-plumbed'. Just no g
  19. The bathroom door on my 1991 Micro Minnie is an accordian door that looks like small parquet sections. It is in excellent condition. However it is very noisy to use at night and limits leg room when sitting. I installed a towel rod, actually a toilet paper holder with the tube discarded and a 30 inch long oak 3/8 dowel put in its place to make a shower curtain rod across the front top of the door opening (outside wall to the bathroom) to the bathroom. This gave privacy and quiet operation at night. I left the accordian door in place for when I sell the MH. I had to cut about 6 inches off
  20. http://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/rvs/4355722468.html guy says starts but won't stay running might be a good steal if you want to take a chance with fixing carb.. also was remote switch w/ harness that's a plus for the $$$ Im thinking of buying to fix and resale if I can see it run/stall in person....
  21. COLD START http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_AJugVDX0g WARMED UP http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfMJV2jUCwE&feature=youtu.be TRADED MY ONAN 2400 HOMESITE AND A 8'X2' INFTABLE BOAT AND A 12VOLT TROLLING ENGINE 30 THRUST THIS WAS A GREAT DEAL FOR ME SPENT UNDER $500 FOR EVERYTHING TRADED.....
  22. Hi, I have a 1987 Toyota dolphin. When I bought it the generator had been removed but the fuel line and electrical connections are still in the compartment. Does anyone know what model generator came with this 1987 Toyota dolphin?
  23. Hi! I'm Andy and I just bought my 1990 Sea-Breeze. I paid $4400 for a 1990 with 73k miles and other than some water damage that needs to be repaired, I think I did OK. I'd like to know what you think too so I started a blog. Please visit and weigh in on this. I've never taken on a project of this size but the cost savings seem to be worth it. I hope so. I think this is the kind of project you hate to do - until it is all done and you can reap the rewards. Here is a link to my new blog page: 90seabreeze.wordpress.com I've already replaced all the tires, done the differential and transmis
  24. Hi Everyone, I have a 92 Toyota spirit, getting ready for the summer, my generator will not turn over. it has been sitting for about 2 years. the rv starts no problem, lights all work though out, I have replaced both batteries. when I press the on button for the generator I get a click and nothing else. I have checked the oil and it seems fine, I can do that again to make sure. I have a 1/2 tank of gas. just looking for someone to point me in the right direction. thanks for your help!! Steve
  25. Ok my 92' dolphin 900 has the factory Generator and I was told it "used to run but won't" so I haven't even bothered trying it knowing it needs at least fresh oil and a new plug. So, if you've dealt with a 20 year old generator that's sat unused for a couple years at least, can you give me a primer on what other items I might want to look at? Carb rebuild? Etc. Thanks in advance!
