Sorry for the delay, The work on the buss has been slow going cause of a couple of deaths in the family and a whole bunch of work on a new project. We ended up with property that we are getting set up to park our camper or trailer or what ever. Anyhow, the bus has substantial rust damage in the back and I have been SLOWLY working on removing the old rusted out stuff so I can weld back new stuff. I have also started rebuilding the rear suspension but I have to make all the parts cause they are not available any more. I have learned how to pour my own polyurethane bushings, but one piece is still stuck to the buss and I have been reluctant to just cut it off. Hope to have more work done this year, but there never seems to be enough time.

RE: Back Up Camera

I bought one of the Cabela's cameras as well, two things I did, wired the camera to a plug so I could build my own adapter cords for various different uses, and I got a couple of magnets so I could stick the camera's bracket to lots of different places. I have a large tool box in the bed of the truck and I can put the camera on the box to watch the hitch as I back up to my trailers then move the camera to the back of the trailers to monitor backing. Even use it to watch the load on my utility trailer.

New LED lights for an old Jayco

The courtesy lights on my old Jayco had long since burned out and direct replacements were impossible to locate. The originals were incandescent bulbs glued into a plastic housing screwed in place throughout the trailer. The housings were all melted to some degree so I was looking for an improved lighting option. LED lights seemed like the likely answer but my local RV store had nothing useful in stock and the catalog showed some very expensive lights that just didn't suit me. So while shopping for a 20 ton jack at the local farm and ranch supply store I spotted my solution. single LED bulbs in a 3/4 inch round housing PERFECT! They are from Custer Products part #CPL1W. I bought the white ones but they come in red and amber too. They wired up quickly and slipped effortlessly into the existing holes. And the price was a fraction of the price at the RV store. http://www.custerproducts.com/uploads/287061258466315.jpg

RE: Detroit Diesel 671 fuel issues

After replacing the fuel pump on my Detroit Had the dry fuel pump issue, solved it as follows: Fill all the fuel filters with fuel. loosened the fuel line on the pump a little, wrapped a rag around an air nozzle and applied air to the fuel tank at the filler tube this pushes fuel through the system to as close to the pump as you are going to get it. when the fuel starts to drip out of the loosened fuel line tighten it back up and start the engine. May need to use starting fluid to get it to go. On my current bus someone added an air chuck to the fuel cap.

RE: Been working on a new camping spot

Is that land you own? This is part of a larger ranch that was started by my Great Grandfather. We had to divide things between family members and this is the piece I chose. I decided to fore go the cattle ground in favor of stuff with a view and the creek.
