Got a late start, I see there’s 171 of you guys already here, sorry for the wait…… The 4 mile ride in was nice, a long sleeve shirt would have felt nice!.This is the time of the year we live for here in Florida…..it’s not that heat but what comes after!
The guys were too fast for me, they took the 1/8″ x 2″ aluminum flat stock shown here..Countersunk rivets, sealed the seams then installed the aluminum…… I came in this morning and Orghan Anne’s body mold project is done right down to the new 4 superbright LED side marker lights we use. ..The finished look is clean and new. Of course the Zip Dee awning, LED project headlights, Alcoas compliment everything.
Here’s something that came up yesterday that’s really important for you to know about. This even cropped up causing a coach to seriously block traffic when it shut down. Yes, this little rubbery black wire is more than a mere wire .This is a fuse link that supplies power to the engine fuse block in the glove box. If this 40 year old fuse wire gives up……yes we have no power! And you might never know its there! When it fails it has away of getting your attention! Someone asks,”What causes that fuse link to blow?” In normal conditions it’s the “failsafe” device in the electrical system but after 40 years it does not NEED a reason…..it just can! In the case yesterday the air ride system compressor was pulling more current because of a burned old spade connection…….. We rewired the compressor to its own fused circuit to the living area batter. This takes a good 30 amps from the fuse link circuit that blew. Now there’s no large current drains through that fuse link. This refit was from a GM maintenance bulliten……We also install an ATC fuse holder with a 40 amp. Fuse so you can check to see if this happens again..Carry an extra fuse in the glove box…….
Ok so its 8am, the guys are showing up. Can’t miss Heroes loud 79 F150! See ya tomorrow…..
