  1. I added a bit and saved again. Try a home made fix for the comfort part. I can’t help about the height tho.
  2. Hi Dave, don’t just buy the first thing you find, that would be a ... knee-jerk reaction. Nyuknyuk. I signed up for the MATS show in the spring. Rumor has it there are many seat displays. In the mean time I am going to un-lace the seat and insert a store bought gel cushion. I decided I don’t need more functionality than i already have. The seat “bun” is the worst part. So really I just have that complaint.
  3. We are in Asheville NC for one night. https://www.campfirelodgings.com/ Big rigs beware, the turns are very tight and the lanes are narrow. The view is worth it.

    Drom box potential

    Thanks Argo, great idea! I found a sleeper locally also. I have not gone to look yet. Did you move exhaust or fuel tanks to make it work?

    Drom box potential

    Hi all, I have been thinking a lot (!) about tool storage lately. I ran across an ad from a local man who has some interesting parts that would work for a drom box. i went to his place to look and measure. This morning I took a few measurements on the back of our truck and I think his used components will be too big for the space we have left on our frame. With all the brain cells wasted thinking about this Maybe I’m just obsessed, because we are in the process of downsizing and I want to keep most of my small tools. So I’m putting this on the HDT site for a person with a truck these items will fit. It is advertised on FB btw. It used to be a bed on a big electric company truck and it has a 7’ square by 6’ tall steel shed with some wired lights inside and out. also had 2 very large aluminum oil tanks probably with baffles. i like them both but think they could be a significant amount of work to make them fit or add doors to one of the tanks. Plus I wonder if the oil tanks held some really nasty stuff or just plain oil. Location is in NC. Pics from the owner are for those who don’t use FB. Not shown is the door on the back or interior. The door is not built for security. The interior is very clean. Click For Full-Size Image. Click For Full-Size Image.

    pin box options help

    For anyone interested we have one from our 5er also. Removed last week. Located NC.
  7. I think you’re onto something there Dave. See seminar list below How to buy good used parts How to install upgrades yourself Delegating that pesky PT Hazards of welding your own frame Care and feeding of your very own bedpan macerator
  8. Also the Bruss’s website is very informative. http://www.dmbruss.com/index.html
  9. When everyone is eating your gourmet offering at the seminar, try and have some truck stop beef jerky in your pocket for you. Unless your cooking is better than mine, then don’t worry about it.
  10. I added a direct battery wire and a 30 amp automatic fuse to the brake controller tabs. Until I did that, my brakes were not working.

    Getting New Seats

    Thanks David. I have not been to the MATS that sounds like a good one to try. Dallas in August sounds rough but we have never been to Texas so it would be good from that standpoint. I found a show in Atlanta this month but the description says it’s aimed at fleet buyers. Probably nothing of interest for us there.

    Getting New Seats

    Hi all, and thanks to Steve, I am thinking about new seats and some other new hardware for our gen 2 VNL. I hope to revive this discussion for a short time. The only place near us with seats on display is the Kenly 95 truck stop. They have some but no Knoedler. Is there a place to order seats from that commonly has the best prices? Is it possible to find a sale at certain times of the year? Should I just plan to be at the next truck show wherever it is and buy from a salesperson?
  13. I hope this helps: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3Xnp1myA-c Thread you might be looking for? Hi Chief, I know Davena will be happy to send you printed instructions, I dont happen to have them right now.
  14. I found a "better" one Mr. Cob will enjoy this. I skipped to 15:32 because after the paint it takes shape.
  15. I am reminded of a book I read about live aboard boating, specifically during the winter. The author noted that there are many different levels of budget and many different philosophies toward comfort. RV's range from huge multi room condos to small flip out bunk types and many $$$ in between. (Paraphrasing here) But, eventually, the discussion always comes down to pumping poop.
