    CTIS trouble shooting

    Video has link to sources but doesn't specify which pressure rating. Is there a 75 psi one or which specific transducer do we need? Got an actual part number/supplier?

    Keith's M1078 Project

    110v? 12v? Hydronic? Will the tank be insulated? I am nearing the same step in my build and am not above blatantly stealing your ideas, if you don't mind.

    M1088 camper conversion

    Confirmed- no rake to it. It is 145" across the top to the ground, near as I can measure to a gravel surface of the carport. No rake to the chassis, no rake to the habitat.

    No worries Scott. Will PM you my contact info, feel free to use it.

    M1088 camper conversion

    1 - Will need to get back to you later (not home right now). It should be fairly consistent though, as it is built squarely on the chassis, which has no static rake to it. I think I am right at 12' right now, but will have solar and branch deflectors up there as well (maybe ~3" higher?). 2 -...

    M1088 camper conversion

    Indeed, looking good Recce! Get your build thread started!! I don't know if you have a thread somewhere else but despite the somewhat non-traditional re-purposing of these vehicles, this has been an impressively welcoming and supportive forum. Great info, very little BS to distract, and some...

    M1088 camper conversion

    Still putting that choice off for now. I have found a sheet material of very thin alu, plastic, very thin alu for sign making which seems pretty popular with the pop top camper crowd. Thinking of using that. Also thinking just plain alu. Lots to still figure out... Understood. Concept is...

    M1088 camper conversion

    Today was glamor shots day. Every now and then it feels like I need to get it out of the stall and see what it looks like in the open air. It's just as big as I remember but it's not as overwhelming as it was the first time I rolled it out of the build carport. Feels good to know that...

    M1078 rear tail light conversion.

    Thank you Ronmar! Bookmarking this post for future reference. The converter I got worked but I am hesitant to trust it for brake lights... If I hard wire something in which I know doesn't depend on diodes or other electronics, I'd feel a lot better about it.

    M1078 rear tail light conversion.

    It's been a while since I did it and I do remember it taking a try or two, but I think that was more because I misread the pin out for the 7-pin outlet or something. Once I had the wires in the correct place, it worked like a champ. I'm sometimes skeptical with small, cheap, aftermarket...

    M1078 rear tail light conversion.

    Nope. No diodes, no nothing, just wired up as advertised and it actually worked. I was skeptical but it worked on my quick trial. I expect (and truly hope) that it will when I do the final install...

    M1078 rear tail light conversion.

    BTW, I just used the 7 pin connection to test them out, and will probably just use that when I wire up the camper body with the running lights, etc...

    M1078 rear tail light conversion.

    I want to do the same- with larger LED tail lights and amber for the turn signals. I found a tail light decoder/de-coupler. I tried it temporarily and it worked as advertised. Will install permanently in a bit...

    M1088 camper conversion

    It's been an incredibly productive last two days. After having built one door, the second went together in a flash. Next up was actually constructing the spare carrier concept which I've been brewing in my head since I removed the OEM gear. This also went together shockingly quickly, and even...
