Re: top clearance lights out. markers and headlights ok

The clearance lights are daisy chained and are powered through the headlight switch on the instrument panel on my 2000. The wires are marked as clearance lights but I think SMC only started printing on wires shortly before 2000. The clearance light wires on mine run down the drivers pillar and then ...

Re: Removing inner rear wheels, diff seal

I had dragging issues with my brakes, front and back. What I have been told is the phenolic cups absorb water if sitting to long and seize or don't release fully. On mine they overheated the pads and crumbled the lining, on the rear one seal was leaking and two abs sensors melted. I carry an infra r...

Re: AC power problem

You may have a broken wire or pitted contact in the transfer switch. Remove the plate use a DVM to read the shore input, 120v on each leg to common, zero volts between legs. Then check the output side, it's a Y, 1 side shore in, 2nd side generator in, one out to inverter. If on shore power you shoul...

Vented Dryer Installation

This project adds a 110v vented dryer above the existing Splendide wash/dryer. The dryer portion of the Splendide did not work as well we wanted, leaving the clothes damp and in a clump. The dryer chosen has a vent that was simple to run through the ceiling and also had front cleaning lint traps. Ma...

Re: Roof replacement

If it leaks due to failed sealant the roof may not need replacement just resealing. But all the old sealant must be removed. I had massive leaks, 21 out of 22 seal points leaked. The interior roof was compromised in every area. If you look thru the link there are projects on roof repairs that might ...

Slideout Switch

Does anyone have a link for the slideout switch? I bought one that Mel posted but can't find the link from the old site. I need a second for the power reel. Thanks.

Replacing the Center Headbanger Cabinet

The center front cabinet on my 2000 Safari Continental was made for a tube style TV and was a constant source of head injuries when not paid attention to, which was too often. The cabinet was no longer needed to house the old style TV or even the LCD monitor. Therefore the monitor design was changed...

Re: High Resolution Camera System: Driving and Surveillance

I will try that Mel. Thanks for the tip. I also used your idea for the salesman switch... changing it over to the toggle solenoid using the slide out switch. One of my favorite projects with a real payback. It dropped the waste of current when on from 3amps to 0. Thanks again.... Robert
