We consummated the deal after a test drive, and she now resides in Tucson. Seems Photobucket will not let me upload at the moment, but I'm sure you have all seen a '96 Land Yacht...
The PO indicated it was like this when he purchased it. After putzing around bit, discovered the top(red) switch is the only one that does anything. "Down" is on, and up is off. The blue is indeed not functional as far as I can tell.
It was about 200 miles home, and learned a few things:
1. The stock headlights suck.
2.The stereo and speakers suck.
3. The top storage cabinets (above the drivers/passenger seats) moves a lot; does not appear well connected to the roof.
4. The steering is ... loosey goosey. Maybe 2.5"-3" free play left-right.
5. The front end wallows like a '67 Caddy.
6. The front tires are NINE years old...
Ordered bell cranks, koni shocks, and Toyo tires today. Hard to believe no tire store in Tucson carries Toyos in 19.5".
Have to get the auto-park resolved soon as well. Weird stuff. How is it the Feds have not got involved with this??? At this point, I am thinking of removing the hydraulic auto-park and going with just the manual pedal. While I have seen a couple solutions, they all seem more complex than I would like to keep the auto-park. One thing I thought of was to use a worm gear tied to the "Park" position switch of the gear lever. Have one of these on a sidecar for levelling purposes. Plenty of torque, lots of throw, and once power is removed, they lock until power is then applied with reverse polarity. Or a long throw 12VDC solenoid with a ratchet engagement would also work. Any thoughts?
Anyhow, looking forward to getting some deferred maintenance done, and get the old girl handling well. Hope to do a couple trips this summer. Plan on trailering our unique toad...
