The latest other then a T-shirt with a 345 on the front, purchased a water regulator with a guage and adjustable! Hopt to be able to adjust up more then the 45lbs of the fixed reulators. The manual suggests that with 75lbs incomming, the MH regulator from the factory, (if still working) will put out approx 45 - 55lbs. Better showers whith full hook!!!!!

I replaced it with another 105 amp. It was pretty easy as it sits on the top right of the engine. Wasn't thinking that I shouldn't tighten the belt though. It seemed a little loose before starting. Tightening the old belt made it splinter into many peices taking out 2 more belts with it. I guess next weekend I'll get around to replacing all of them.
I stayed with the lower amp alternator as I'll be converting to LED's on the outside. I don't like the way the headlight switch gets hot.

I carry a spare 105 but wondered if the larger option GM offers would wire in OK.

I also wonder if we could split out all of the running lights and have them on a separate circuit, switch. Ricky

there is the switch to Blink the running lights. so that is split off some way.

I was having lots of alternator problems, squeaking, breaking belts, not charging. It replaced with 220amp alt last weekend. Replacing isolator with 240amp unit today. I should not have alt problems again. High output is expensive though.

Powerful

Upgraded to a large body 200amp...single wire...had to recurve the top adjustment slot, but everything else was a slip in fit.
Now I don't watch the voltage gauge drop as I drive at night.
Also the hummervolt replaced with a Intella 60 amp.

It is a Coleman. It runs off the coleman fuel(LPG I guess) It works just like any drip coffee maker only there is nothing to plug in. Just add filter, coffee, and water and in 15 min you have 12 cups of very hot coffee.

Shampoo

Got the winter cover off the CLIPPER today and gave her a good shampoo.
Will be on the road next week.
Can't wait to find out what doesn't work.
