I have got the Pneumatic lumber system working as it is the only function not connected to the memory seat/mirror cpu.
If I remember you are also on expedition portal. There are a couple threads on RR seat wiring. I believe 1 of them is for the P38 style.

Well the threads on expo were all for the classic, sorry. I did see you posted up in RR.net. The Rave CD is great, if you can get that to work for you that will answer all questions. Seems like you are on the right track. I bet an inline fuse (30A) would be all you would need.

Thanks!
Pictures make a huge difference, so thats why I add them!

Some PO or vendor made a real mess of the funace conversion...
The OEM's were horizontal vents and the replacements were vertical.
I think a neat riveted patch will make them look better... Just collecting tools for the job..

Front...


Rear...


Adding "critter protection" made them look a little better..




I am planning to add a functionality too, so a dog leash hook on both.. with my 2 I will need that double skin thickness too!
On the rear, as the neatest way is to extend the patch all the way rearward to the storage door,I was planning an outside shower hookup, for kid and dogwashing..

Decided to tackle some ugly stuff this weekend...

The install of the levelers was clearly done post factory... and was poorly done in my opinion.
The rear is good, but the front... Wow... Really?
Pictures speak louder than words...


No drain holes... so...

I obtained the correct mounts used...
A clean up and a lick of paint, and they will be perfect.
They go on the main chassis rails close to the transmission crossmember.


So, the old ones need to be gone..
Armed with Sawzall, grinder and chisels, I went on the attack!
Last look..


Going...


Going...


Goings..


GONE!

The other side is next, but I needed a rest!

Moved on to some work to take home...
I had glued the rear fairing together in situ, and now it was time to remove it and get it home to clean it up.
Its in pretty bad shape, so I might choose to use it or take a mould off it and make a new one... either way I needed it off, and to make it better..

Drivers side...

Sawzall made short work of it..




But it took me another hour to get the rest of the crap off...
It fought me every step!




Time to get some primer and topcoat on..

Just a quick update.
here is the old mounting...
Look how bad this is... look at the thinning of the metal structure at the top and the amound of junk and sediment in the tube...




Did a little inspection and cleaning up on the first jack.


The bearing that the actuator bears again is frozen solid on one Jack... and missing on the other!
I called HWH and they are under $10 each.

On the first jack, the welded stop on the top is bent.



I tried to beat it back to square, but it was not moving much.

Degreased and sanded it out.



Shot some red oxide primer on the parts.



I was trying to decide what color to paint the jack with..
Black was my first choice, but then I had a thought...
A lighter color would be easier to see... for example if it is not retracted or down straight when looking under the MH.
Also oil weepage or leaks would be easier to see...
So...

Both jacks are ready...
Waiting for roller bearing and bushes from HWH now.
Also prepped and painted one jack mount and one chassis mount.
