Hi Andy,
I had some spare #1156 LED bright white bulbs. It has the same type of base as the bulb that I took out. It is a longer bulb but if fits nice.

Thanks
Alan

Hey Crit, did you have to drain the coolant to get that Sporlan done ? Mine isn’t working.

I did not drain the coolant. The first Sporlan valve, I plugged the in/out lines with small pieces of terry towel by removing the Sporlan center parts and stuffing the towel pieces in the lines. Cleaned the diaphragm being sure the little hole in the diaphragm is cleared, then removed the pieces of towel, reassemble, or install new parts.

The next one I just put a terry towel under the Sprolan valve, removed parts, cleaned or replaced the parts, no pieces of towel.

BE SURE THERE IS NO LINE PRESSURE. HTH

I took my newly purchased bus to my mechanic to check it out. I had a checklist for him to do that included:
1. Install tire monitoring system
2. Install new pump for the toilet flush
3. Check out the awnings
4. Repair the bedroom shade
5. Look at a small leak in the generator compartment.
6. Install a refrigerator lock to keep it closed.
7. Overall inspection
I guess you could say that we are trying to "zero out" the bus.

Technically, Yesterday I built a new set of steps using heavier steel welded,galvanized 20 gauge sheet metal, rubber mat and aluminum trim. Much sturdier than the originals.

Removed the last suburban furnace to go through it. Has a lot of rust inside the combustion chamber. Looks like rain water came in through the exhaust. ( bus lived in warm weather so they haven't been used in years ) Found a NOS one on e-bay. At $225.00 not worth taking a chance on developing a hole in the rusted one. Should have the replacement next week. Ordered new #53 bulbs for the night lights. They are only 1.3 watts, couldn't find them locally but readily available from Amazon for cheap $.
