thanks a lot "friends" hope I can now call you that!

for now I'm doing all on a tight budget (had a hard month!)and by remote control!: the rig is in Tampa Fl. and I'm in Guatemala, central america, the thing does NOT start and seems it entered copart lot running, hope is only a dead batery, (how hard is to make a bullet proof 454 to run!) I have to import it to Guatemala thru St tomas port (about $1500 shipping) plus import taxes. Ive read about the ecectrical problems w/ grounding, and corrosion on the bats. is there a way to complete isolate the chasis bat from all electrical BUT the engine running itself?
this is because for shipping the ship policy is that a vehiche of this size MUST move by its own power for loading and unloading, so the bat must be alive for about 3 weeks (parking - loading - "swiming" - unloading - parking for customs)
Im flying next week to get my hands dirty!!!( I CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!)
Im really thrilled for this new Rving pastime!!!
I will try to post the pics via aux site, if not Ill post directly on this site

GREETINGS FROM ALWAYS WARM GUATEMALA, (well not now since rainy season began!!!)

Sorry it's a PITA but it's a necessary evil. Didn't take THAT long now did it?

When you click the "reply" button you see a post window with a bunch of selections across the top.....Starting from the RIGHT and counting back to the left, the second one looks like a picture...After you've uploaded the picture somewhere onto the internet, you can then copy and paste the picture URL into the area that appears. To find the picture url address, RIGHT CLICK over the picture and go down to properties...

Note....you have the right idea, all that clicking on the picture does is give you the code to add your url...

[img] http address [/img] will work too....
