RE: Seats in a 2021 Forester Classic w/ Ford 450 chassis

Just add spacers between the seat base and the floor.

RE: Magic Chef

If you go with a new oven, try to find one that will fit in the existing location without too much carpentry work. It seems like none of the ovens available are the same dimensions as the Magic Chef ranges.

RE: Magic Chef

I had the same problem 2-3 years ago. I searched and searched and could not find a replacement valve. A generous member of this forum sent me the valve out of an oven that he had replaced. You'll probably just need to buy a new oven unless you can find an old oven to harvest one from.

RE: Dingy towing

If you know how to select a proper gear for the grade, overheating should not be a problem if you are not exceeding the GCVWR (gross combined vehicle weight rating). I've towed my 4Runner over 12,000 foot passes with my '03 Winnie. Mine is 24' so I have a lot more of the GCVWR that isn't consumed by the motor home gross weight. You need to weigh the motor home and the jeep then do some simple math to see where you are.

RE: Best weatherproof MPPT solar charge controller

The controller isn't going to be 100% efficient and it will dissipate some amount of heat. You don't want to put it in a sealed box and cook it. 2oldman just gave a good hint. You can probably put it near the converter and have it indoors. I would try very hard to find a way to mount the controller indoors.

RE: Looking for Short, Used Class C with Island Bed

Fleetwood Tioga 26Q might be what you are looking for.

RE: Shuttle bus conversion

The vast majority of shuttle buses that I've seen are built on the E-van platform. Just taking a quick look on the internet, I do see a few built on an F550 chassis. If you want a bus built on an F350 or F450, you might have difficulty finding one.

RE: Safe T Steering Stabilizer

Tire pressure and caster are the first two things to address to improve steering on the Ford E-van.

RE: (Toad) Tacoma 2001 Dbl Cab, Auto Trans 4x4

To unlock the steering, I use a non-chipped key. I turn the ignition key to on and then back to off. The steering will stay unlocked until you pull the key out.

RE: (Toad) Tacoma 2001 Dbl Cab, Auto Trans 4x4

I’ve towed a 2000 4Runner and am now towing a 2008 4Runner. Pretty much the same drive train as your Taco. I’ve used a driveshaft disconnect on both of them. FYI, I don’t use the shifter linkage for the disconnect, I just lay down and reach under to connect/disconnect it by hand.

RE: Replacing Ford drivers seat........

I built my own seat bases and installed seats from the 2nd row in a Toyota Sienna. Seats were $15 each at the wrecking yard and are infinitely better that the original seats ever were. If you want a really good seat, consider Scheel-Mann.

RE: Removing factory silicone sealant

You need to use something abrasive to clean as much silicone off as possible and then flush it and do it again. It's pretty much impossible to completely remove the silicone contamination. I'm a silicone hater; however, the flowable silicone Winnie uses is very good stuff. When I replaced the skylight with a fantastic fan on my Winnie about a dozen years ago, I abrasively cleaned the roof surface and sealed the fan with the Winnie silicone.

RE: A terrible dinette table. Opinions on modification?

You could offset the table and use two support posts.

RE: 6 liter V8 Chevy Vortec question

Go to a dealer and take one for a text drive. I don't think you should expect it to perform better than the Ford but it might sound different.

RE: Maintenance schedule

It should be part of the owner's manual package that came with the vehicle. Here's a LINK.

RE: Roof type - leaks

Lazy Daze is probably the only Class C with a metal roof.
