N/P Dan.With 350 posts and all the time that has passed,I forgot what I posted or not.

I went to see the connections for the battery today so I could bring back tools to remove the starter battery.Remember how I added a second deep cell battery and had a battery for just the starter??.Well this is my fault for letting it set as long as I did.Someone cut one cable on the starter battery and stole it and also stole one of the deep cell batteries.So now I have to replace them.I figure with the deep cell batteries given the fact they where Interstate blems and they haven't see a charge for all the time the RV has been setting,I think they might have been about shot anyways.

Yep, I got two new 29 series back in 2007. They are toast. And the battery for the engine is also.U would think that the solar panels would keep two batterys full charged during the daytime. I have one of those intel four stage power supplys that take care of the deep cycles and a small 1.5 amp charger with sulfide breaker built in. With that, Both sets are toast! I am not to worried. If we can get this trailer we want, I won't need them replaced. I will have to get a friend to help to pull this beast down to there place to pull the transmission and engine out of it. I have them for sale. I think they are sold already! I am saleing the headers and exhaust system. I am keeping the electric fans, the clutch fan, the Radiator is also for sale. one of the guys here in the court wants it. I am taking the trans cooler and oil cooler too. I am adding the a/c to what is on it already. I know it needs a new toilet and i have one of those. I think i have two of the front tires sold too. Not to sure about the gas tank but i may keep it and the generator and mount it on the trailer. I will need a spare for the trailer. I think its a 15 in. wheel. Not for sure. I will also get the antenna and fan vents and covers for them. I think we will use the bed mattress we have.Our entertainment center will go too.Not sure where but i will keep the small fridge too. Have to check the oven or stove and see how they look. I may take that out of the coach too. I don't know if there is a microwave or not. If not No issue we have the microwave and it has convection oven built in. The lights are gonna be replaced with the fluorescent lights we have here. I am also replacing the awning with ours too! Need to see if the tanks leak or busted. I can use the ones on this if needed. I am also getting the captain's chairs too. They are really comfortable. I hope it has a good fridge in it. I am also looking to see if the ladder on this will work on that trailer. Hope so.If the roof needs work i can use whatever stuff on the coach to fix. When i am done, I am saving the aluminum to go over the scales and the wood taken off the coach i will run the frame over the scales too. Should get pretty good money for them. I will make a bon fire with the wood. at least one fire..maybe three or four.
Anyway, i have my work cut out for me. I will start a new thread on this when i know for sure we have the trailer. You know, I wanted to do this back in 2007 when she got that money. Her family wanted her to do the same. Now she has said that she should had done it too! So, Thats the plan. Check in later, Dan

Depends on the ply rating. 6 ply are 50-60 psi and if 10 ply 80 psi.

I don't remember off hand right now what ply they are.Nothing for pressures on the side walls.We measured on the driver's side 35 on the front and 45 on the rear.I'm going with that until I get it to the shop tomorrow.It's about a 15 mile ride,I should be good to go with that for now and I have a compressor at the shop.

Once I get it to the shop,I am going to see if it fits the overhead door.I measured the door opening and the roof of the RV and the only real question is if the roof A/C is going to clear.It would be nice if it did fit,but if not,I would be taking off the roof A/C to seal the roof anyways.

Yep, I'd watch that A/C for sure! They are very pricey these days! The one i was going to replace cost over $1200.00. That includes delivery and installation.
Hope you can get it inside before the winter, Dan

Well ho-ha,it fits with room to spare.Dan it have been many winters stored outside.The last time I ran that it got cool,but that was yrs ago.I'll likely tarp it this yrs because I have to move it in and out of the shop for room on the other projects I need to get done this winter.
