I was looking for my inverter and solar upgrade pics and forgot I put them in another thread. Well here's a link to the inverter and solar upgrade I did last year. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f311...de-150419.html

Quick question gents. You all steered me away from using tar to seal a hole in my firewall, and towards putty/strip caulk. (No I have not fixed this yet) I picked up 30' of Butyl tape (Strip Caulk), and will seal up this area this weekend in preparation for our holiday road trip to TN and FL. Everything I read says it stays soft, unless exposed to UV, and since this is under the dash, I think it will work nicely. Any final thoughts before I execute?

Hey Nick,

How about a sheet of Dynamat sound deadener? The stuff is super flexible, and super sticky. Another idea would be to tape it over from one side, and cover it with Tremco caulking from the other. Tremco really maintains its elasticity once it dries, and I would think you could peel the tape away after it set up. Have fun!

I think the non-hardening butyl call strip is the way to go.

Ahoy Nick,
If you and the family are coming thru the panhandle, I'd be happy to offer you a layover spot to stop in at.

My brother and I bought a place about 15 mi inland from Panama City Beach to develope as a base camp for ourselves and friends. It's pretty basic at this point while we wait for permits. But I can get you a 20 amp hook up, and water at this point.

We are right next to Pine log state forest (they also have camping spots around a small lake). And are in easy bicycle range of our place.

I'm staying here now in my coach and really liking the area.

Pm me for details if this is a fit for you.

Cheers Richard

I'm looking forward to becoming a good waypoint for classic motorhome folks traveling to and from south Fla.

So looked at products and application, and determined until I redo the rats nest that is the dash, the butyl tape with duct tape backing in the pass through holes will do.

Also installed the 3rd 100ah lithium this weekend, and battery cut off switch from the isolator to the coach batteries.

May the force be with you......I happened to look at John's, as he had it opened to hook up the road brake system; rats nest would be putting it nicely.😟

Cheers

So holiday trip...
1. Wouldn't shift into gear... identified she was idling at 1k, adjusted idle screw to 850rpm, shifted into gear.
2. Lost all coach 12v power camping in relative's driveway. Learned the lithiums have a safety cut-off at 12.5v until they detect a charge condition.
3. Alternator died in Talahasee with 5hrs to go. Turned on aux power and ran lights off of the lithiums until we got there... no problem. Still under warranty, replaced on the beach.
4. It was -5 to 12 on the final leg of the drive back. In order to heat the coach to 70deg while driving, we needed both furnaces, generator running, both rooftop AC heat strips, and two space heaters. In the cold we ran 180deg on the engine.
5. Averaged 11.4mpg going an average of 69mph.
6. Winterized her on the beach seeing the weather on the return trip.

Nick,

..... So you're basically saying that all in all, it was just another typical, relaxing, uneventful vacation.

Charly,

Pretty much!

In other news, discovered airstream trailer owners are a judgmental, narrow-minded lot today. Posted this pic on the Facebook page 'Airstream Addicts' got deleted by a rogue administration twice, and full social justice warrior attack on character for it. I don't get it... I see more skin at the beach.
