Hey Zep
Do you have any solid outriggers that go next to the wheels? That type is the ones I am missing. I am needing four.
I have spent some time just rolling around under there and it seams to me once I get these guys replaced I am good to go on putting things back together. I am holding my breath on taking the lowest section of interior skin off so I can replace wall to floor to frame bolts and inspect the insulation.

Still thinking

What if I didn't removed the originals but welded new outriggers with the opposite flanges to the old and the new to the frame? So at each existing outrigger there would be two side by side? Am I making any sense?

The attached pic show the typical condition of all the outriggers. the lower portion is rusted the upper is still in good condition.

That's exactly what I did on the Safari, reversed the outriggers to get the flanges on the other side. I don't think that works on the stair outriggers and the ones next to the wheels, but it does everywhere else.

I didn't buy any of the solid ones. I don't know if Out of Doors Mart sells them. It's 16-gauge steel. I looked around for a shop that uses that stuff and found that it's hard to find. I think there is a yard art guy in Larkspur who cuts out circles and birds and stuff who uses it. I wonder if the steel fabricator shop in Louviers on highway 85 could fabricate some for you?

I have a couple of contractor friends that have large sheet metal shops that can fab the solid ones for me. I just thought you might have some laying around. I will ask those guys and see if they can't do it. I also saved a piece of cross frame from I can cut outriggers out of it. I can only get two out of one piece. It seems a waste. How is the Safari coming?

How about a trade. Do you have an exterior stove vent like the picture. I'll make you the outriggers for the vent.

Blast me some dimensions or a part. How many do you need? Once I set up it's just as easy to make a bunch. The ones without the holes would be super easy. Holes would be a pain as I don't have a strip-it punch.

Hey, please send the black water tank as my husband may be able to 'make it work' on our AS...I think my black water tank is cracked. I have not removed the floor in our rear bath yet, but considering that I did have a major leak in the past as well as now having odor issues--I feel as though this may be the problem---plus I have rear end separation issues...Now it is up to me to do everything as my husband tells me that my beloved AS is MY PROJECT...This means I have to do everything on my own, and if I am successful--then he gets to reap the rewards of my blood, sweat, and tears....I am hoping for the best outcome...Wish me luck!!!

I fixed my black tank (actually white-ish polyethylene) with Scotch Weld.

A Sketch of an Outrigger

I finally had a few seconds with the obsession Sunday. I managed to loosen the axles (there was some of belly pan stuck between the frame and the axle). I also made my first pass at leveling the frame. I am supporting the frame at 9 different points. It can be tiering making small adjustment and crawling out from under and checking the levels, crawling back under and adjusting, crawling out and checking, crawling back under, crawling out, crawling, crawling, crawling. I'm a little soar. I might have to get some help.

I have posted a quick sketch of a typical solid left handed outrigger.

I was thinking the outriggers were 16 gauge. Thanks for the info.
