oh well, guess my sense of humor has 'offended' someone. They've pulled my post with the license plate from the 'Sex in an Airstream' thread. hmmmm, maybe someone actually DID figure this out??? lol
Thanks, Derek

Bumper Removal

Here's a new one. Have soaked the ever-livin' out of the bolts on my bumpers, but those durn things refuse to budge. Anyone with suggestions, they surely would be welcome.
Thanks, Derek

Hacksaw the nut, if a couple of days of blaster doesn't do it. you did put an extension on the wrench, I have found leverage can move or break anything.;-)

12V Handbook & Chevrolet Motor Home Chassis Service Guide
Maybe the book is for Boats, but I've read through this book already, and it's relevant to just about everything we deal with. Can't wait to see what I'm missing with the Chevrolet Motor Home Chassis Guide.

Thanks, Derek

What are you soaking the bolts with? Have you tried PBS Blaster? I have had good luck with BG In Force. This stuff truly is liquid hammer and chisel in a can. IT loosened my bumper bolts so could polish them on my Airstream.

Try equal parts of auto trans fluid and acetone. It's been tested many times and out performs all commercial products.

Good luck, Dan

BG In Force is the best stuff. It wicks into the bolts really well. I think you can find it online. It is sold to auto techs similar to Snap On tools by a traveling salesman.

Ok,
I sure wish I could say what I've done to get this to happen, but after all of the wiring I've done over the weekend (on the back of the battery tray) I realized a bit ago, when I was finished last evening, that the light @ the electric door steps had come on last evening. Now, I sure as heck could tell you which battery operates that light.
BUT! I figured out which battery, it's the engine battery. I just got my Airstream started! 1st time in over 2 months that the engine has turned over. Jeez, why did I wait till it was pitch dark to figure this out. I just wanna go for a little joy ride!
Thanks, Derek
