RE: E series engine doghouse

Travelin2 I purchased my new bigger cup holder from the Ford dealer, yes you need the vin from your unit, go to another Ford dealer and they have a book catalogue or the microfiche or the computer with the different cup holders all those cup holders are the same on the attachment points only the front is different. Another place to purchase the wood trim if from companies that do van conversions, it has bee a number of years since I dealt with one, there should be at least one in your area. navegator

RE: Remove black water tank or leave it.?

Leaving the tank and the valve open will create problems in time, when the toilet is used in this manner not all the fecal matter is "flushed" down the sewer line and eventually it will clog the tank and the tank will have to be removed. Your best solution is to remove the tank and purchase a house toilet and connect that to the parks system, hook the toilet to the existing valves so that when you leave for the summer you can "shut" the system down and no sewer gas gets in or sewer critters, for that matt I would also remove the gray tank and connect directly to the valves. Just remember to leave the breather tubes hooked to the new lines. navegator

RE: E series engine doghouse

The wood trim is available either from Ford or from customizer houses, it is an after market product for the dash and for the cup holder sections, alignment of the trim is important so that it looks good, used to install them on the old SAAB vehicles and VOLVO many moons ago. In the picture of Travelin2 it shows the offset to the right of the dog house and the different distance from the passenger seat to the dog house and the bigger distance of the drivers side, by moving the passenger seat back and higher we gained more room for my wife's feet to pass trough and the drivers side too, we have the same cup holder the original one was really small just two cup holders and an ashtray with a really small cubby hole. navegator

RE: Mexwanderer in accident

My brother in law was broadsided by a bus in Guadalajara yesterday. It was not his fault, but the cops handcuffed one of his hands to a post. Is this normal? I do not want to start an argument, I have dealt with Mexican law for more than 50 years on and off. Why then was the person that was "T" boned and not at fault handcuffed to a pole? They may have some courts, but the reality is still the same as it was 50+ years ago. La verdad no peca, pero incomoda ( The truth does not commit any sins, but it is uncomfortable.) In that sense Mexican laws are changing but very slow, the rich are innocent and the poor are guilty, it is the same as the USA, there was a lot of muddy water under Chappaquiddick's bridge. navegator

RE: Mexwanderer in accident

In Mexico every one gets arrested, the innocent the guilty and the witness, Napoleonic law, YOU are guilty until YOU prove YOU are innocent, as stated unless you have insurance and can have either an adjuster or a lawyer at the scene of the incident, they will not let you go, unless you have insurance. And no one wants to be a whiteness, that is why no one ever sees anything at all you might be accused of causing the incident. navegator

RE: E series engine doghouse

The dog house itself is the same what changes are the different cup holders and "glove box" attached units to the dog house, they look as if they are one piece but are two separate units, the cup holder is attached with 3 plastic round buttons that look like top hats and are inserted in holes that are key holes, pull hard enough up and the cup holder pops out. In some cases to work on the engine the cup holder has to be removed and then the dog house if the passenger seat is not removed, on my 2001 I have to remove the cup holder in order to remove the dog house, I have the biggest cup holder with a big "glove box", they will not come out together not enough room with the seats. Units with the wood trim need very careful handling in order not to crack the varnish "plastic" coating on the wood do not twist the wood at all. navegator

RE: E series engine doghouse

The dog house is one piece and the cup holder and storage is a separate unit, what I have done is to lift the seats by 3 inches with a square channel and install the passenger seat 4 inches to the rear this allows the passenger more room and easy access, I also installed a hand hold on the dash board for the wife to move to the back and get snacks or go tinkle. The engine and transmission are off set to the right from center so there is less room on the passengers side to move, moving the seat back gave us the added room to pass and a higher and more comfortable seat rather than sitting inches from the floor, if you do the lifting make sure that the bolts and nuts are grade 8 and made in the USA, Chinese stuff does not meet standards for this application, make sure that the square channel is also thick and sturdy. navegator

RE: E series engine doghouse

In the older dog house style the center console detaches by pulling up, it attaches at 3 points and can be exchanged for a different one, ours had the small unit and I purchased the bigger unit, the dog house it self is standard, just the storage unit is different. navegator

RE: Leak Over Cab

Check the marker lights, they crack with the sun and are hard to see, I had the center one cracked when with a bird strike, hard rain no problem, light rain or mist had water at upper center of window, first put tape on lights and then replaced all, no more leak. navegator

RE: interesting issue with Propane / CO detector

Our cat curled next to the gas detector and let one rip, we had to peel the cat off the ceiling those suckers are loud, other than the cat turning it on the battery ran dry one cell sulfated and set the unit off, check battery's also for proper water fill, and cook the beans with out the onions, lees propane produced. Another day I was visiting with my friend in his TT, his gas detector is at the end of the seat in the dinette, he let one loose and set the detector off methane is also detected, beans with onions again. navegator

RE: New Gas Stations Are Opening

No gas hike tomorrow the government has postponed the increase for latter, there were massive protest planned for tomorrow and the government decided to not steer the pot too much. In other news the Colima volcano burped hard today at about 18.00 Central time, the Popocatepetl volcano is breathing hard also, a mote of history Hernan Cortez's men climbed Popo to get sulfur to make gun powder. navegator

RE: New Gas Stations Are Opening

Next February 4th is the next "gasolinazo" cheap gas maybe 20.00 pesos a liter and 25.00 pesos for the expensive gasolina, it only hurts those that can afford it the least, taxis have gone up 5.00 pesos from the regular price. navegator

RE: Interesting tidbits from RVTravel

The Tia Juana river runs trough the propsed campground where Greg Cox (he is an idiot) wants to build an RV park, that area floods evey time it rains in Southern California, that river starts in the US then croses in to Mexico at Tecate and then back to Mexico in Tijuana, it picks all the manure from the cow ranches near Tecate and all the "latreens" in Tijuana, the black water in your RV is cleaner than the river flow during the rainy season, when the fire department has to do a river resque they go with full hazmat protection. That is why we that live in Imperial Beach say IB where the turds float in the surf, some years it is so bad that the contamination reaches Coronado and North Island, that proposal is really a bad idea. navegator
