Located & fixed another stubborn mystery air leak - it was hiding in the aux air compressor water separator.
One down - several to go

I drove it to Steve Pappas' house and we commenced to remove the microwave and install a new Sharp R-930AK (AK means black) convection/microwave. Nice fit with 1/16 inch to spare on the sides Pic when I have better Inet access.

Decided to spend the night in the bus rather than drive the hour each way home and back in the toad. Today we will tackle a few simpler issues. Leaking valve cover gasket for one. Looks like the roof pass through Rick installed for the satellite dish has enough room for the Wifi and Cell antenna cables as well.
Need to pull the rear Suburban, the other two were reconditioned by Shane

Hooked up the water and no leaks, guess we did the winterization right ( of course we did). I flushed out most of the pink stuff into the holding tanks.

Still getting used to driving this thing, very different from the FC. More stuff to think about (like the tag axle pressure). A few non-working gauges (pyro, trans temp [but the retarder temp works].

Gard, you should still have use of the tranny temp on the DigiPanel. The analog tranny temp gauge needs a sender to match the gauge. I bought the wrong sender before.

I complete a couple of small projects to add storage and organization. I removed the ice maker and put it into storage. In it's place I added two pull out drawers and matching cabinet door. DW really appreciated the added kitchen space! The other area of attention was the deep black void in the cabinet next to the couch. I installed another pull out drawer in this space. I find it useful for maps and campground books. These were definitely fun and useful upgrades.

The digiPanel never registers over the first led (100 degrees?) Mostly it is blank. I need to check that sender as well.

Today Steve and I ran the cell and Wifi antenna wires to the roof using the passthrough that Rick did for the satellite antenna, there was just enough room for the two additional wires. We also pulled out the rear Suburban heater for maintenance.

Here is a pic I promised of the convection/microwave.

Started getting parts together for the new hydronic heating system aluminum reservoirs. Will start a new thread when I get all the parts together. Gotta go practice my TIG welding again.

Also just got my new Crossfires to install.

Don't think I can get bumper cover repaired and painted before Marble Falls.

Check if the DigiPanel Trans. Temp. wire end is strapped to the outflow (Big Nut) of the transmission. That's where I strapped it when I installed the DigiPanel. The readings I see on the Panel are very close to the analog gauge.

After 5 months on the road, had a bit of fuel in the "V"'
So just replaced the throttle rod seal, a few more projects,
And it's back on the road, these old bird's sure are fun.
