On the rear you can get under the frame rails next to the engine. In the front, after much scrutiny, I have ‘trusted’ the front subframe. Jim’s air bag struts sound interesting for extra safety.

Same. Had that switch go bad. I think it’s the same switch on the rear box also, so a couple more items to keep your eye on.

Well I’m glad you found them. Little ‘inconvenient’ on Bluebirds part. I think this stems from the issues I had with mine. The heater fuses were getting hot, arcing and blowing, probably too much...

Your rotors are probably fine. I had to replace mine because of the metal to metal score. Rotors are allowed some cracking, refer to a repair manual that has photos to determine.

I saw on your panel that Opt 6 didn't have a fuse. Does Opt 5 turn off one of your heaters? Maybe the PO had arcing issues and had to abandon the fuse base. Might be direct wired or rigged somehow...

I keep the Bose system and moved the sub-woofer, out of the way, to behind the sofa. Sounds great to my 'antique' ears.

I keep my 380 plugged into 110v 20a. Off course dash switch to charge start and house batteries. Keeps everything charged and I can run both electric heaters when needed.

I knew I did it with a one wire change! Unfortunately, I forget about half of everything anymore. Sorry I didn't follow up. Meant to go out and see if I could retrace what I did. Thanks Don!

Chance the wood was beside the batteries instead of under them? Haven't done this in a while and can't remember. Although I don't think AGMs gas off much, I would want to get the vented lid on tight.

My Hurricane has always had very minimal fuel delivery. Maybe prime the filter bowl with a little diesel. Try ignition multiple times.
