Wow so many have contributed still. Thank you all. Here is the video you requested Barb in Toro
I have not written because we hit a couple really cool state parks in Florida and I do not yet have mobile wifi set up. I have lived in Florida most my life and never saw the caverns or waterfalls up north in the panhandle. After replacing the alternator we have not had another mechanical issue. Having said that, we started out adventure back towards our home town and I kind of felt like the previous issue was still there. We drove for almost 4 hours just like last time.
The battery was fully charged though and the alternator is working. It could all be in my head.
I took everyone advice and read through all manuals. I had a frig problem come up where it would not run on shore power and had to go searching for fuse locations. Turns out the GFI in bathroom, runs the frig and the plug was just not getting power...so yes, most issues are a simple fix.
I am also fairly certain the generator is a result of battery issue, maybe voltage regulator within the generator.
Now, my black tank is leaking...I know, I know...we parked here in Citra Florida and I looked at where the tank is housed and literally...Oh ****!!! I do plan to convert to a composting toilet though so now I will just need to do that sooner than planned.
I wish I could find someone local to work WITH me to remodel and customize. Refurbish and keep this ole girl on the road. I do like how, she does not fit the mold of the common RV rig today.
Also, I learned that the stupid low pressure port to recharge ac is located behind the air intake. Stupid design flaw. I know we have a leak but it was so hot traveling in Florida with no ac for 4 hours. Even if we only get temporary relief for this last bit of travel back to our home town, it would be worth it. So I have been researching how to remove everything and recharge ac.
