  1. I bought a truck in late December, it took till mid February to just get it titled as a Motorhome in FL. I did not start modifying the truck until after I had the clear title. I began converting it to haul a Jeep on a deck, and added a bumper pull hitch for a travel trailer. I spent every hour I could while working 55ish hours a week. I was able to have the truck, deck, and travel trailer road ready in April. I would have liked to spend more time building, as I have spent as much time correcting/changing some designs, to make things more efficient. We took our first big run in early June. 4 months after title completion. Might want to wait until you have more time, and preferably better weather to work on the truck.
  2. Pull the board out and look for corrosion on the bottom side of the board. Should be able to see where the voltage is leaking off and going to ground.
  3. I use a short section of pool noodle to keep the glass tray in place while running down the road. I wedge it vertically on the glass up to the roof of the microwave.
  4. Looks fantastic, drill a couple drain holes in the plastic just ahead of the brackets?
  5. We have used our microwave going down the road, it is a great tool for warming coffee back up. I think we have made instant oatmeal once as well if I recall correctly. Big issue is the autopilot does not always keep the lane, so I have to keep one eye out the windshield as I move about the cabin. ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‚
  6. if I had a dollar for every time I heard that...... I still wouldn't have a dollar.
  7. Wetness has not been an issue in nearly 4 years.
  8. I have two of the newer Champion Invertor/Generator's. I have added a plastic boat fuel tank with the Johnson quick connect fuel fittings. On the Genset, I added a vacuum fuel pump to pull fuel from the boat tank. The instructions are on the interwebs. Works well and runs a very long time on the tank. I added a fuel filter inline that has a removable bowl, as the only issue I have had with the generator is trash in the needle and seat. Oh, one other issue is valve clearance, be sure to pop off the valve cover and adjust the valves as needed once a year. Perhaps before you install it on the truck would be a good idea. The investors are quite a bit quieter, and I did not need to enclose it in a box. The invertor also has a remote start feature that I can start the gen set from the bunk in the truck and anywhere within my travel trailer, especially nice in in-climate weather.
  9. Could the exhaust be mounted internal to the enclosed box, then fed into a venturi piping and divert it up and away from cab and above head level further reducing noise? I would suspect no need to completely enclose, the sound abatement can be handled with four solid walls and the venturi. The top and bottom of the box really should be similar to the doors over the generator doors on toy hauler campers? Also if you route the exhaust above the trucks cab, the weight of CO 2 would tend to find ways into the cab on calm days?
  10. Glad to hear it Mr. Dave๐Ÿ‘
  11. The current software appears to be version 8.80 You seem to have the cluster in the self test mode as well. I would suspect corrosion somewhere in the wiring leading to the pedal. The loss of amps is enough to confuse the throttle pedal sensor.
  12. I shivered a little just seeing the picture. ๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒจ๐ŸŒฉ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒช We on the other hand are experiencing tropical storm winds and rain, very muggy and wet. ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’งโ˜”โšก๐ŸŒ€๐ŸŒ
  13. Remember something about putting the two extra ABS sensors in the single axle. Fools the truck into thinking there are still two axles.
