After creating a long list of must fix, want to fix, like to fix and cool to fix. I spent some $$ and did the following.

I had the fan clutch and Alternator replaced, as well as the dash AC recharged. Installed a new kitchen vent cover, had the generator tuned and new points installed, replaced the refer, ran new lines to the front airbags, and installed an aftermarket cruise control. I added a transmission cooler in Dallas as I was towing back a trailer full of furniture. Just got back today, 2400 miles and no troubles. Dash AC ran all the way, ran the genset most of way there and back, and the engine temp stayed in the "safe" zone all the way there and back.

I guess that all I can say is that the money spent on maintence and upgrades was well worth it as the trip was mechanically uneventful. As the commercial says....priceless.

Peter- are you saying that I can get more access to the engine by removing the entertaiment center and such on my 82? It would have been helpful to know that when i did the alternator, from underneath the right side wheel!

Alan,
if your dog house and entertainment center looks like mine, yes, there is another removable plate under the entertainment center.
It also gives you easier access to the A/c compressor, belts and waterpump.
