    Default Because Gary called me out...

    I put an addition on the M1010...Not really but it feels like it!! Less a cave now! Both filler neck covers are installed.

    Out of curiosity I ran the M1010 over the scale at the scrap yard... One tank full... one half. Figure about 6650 with both full.

    Yeah, I had to mine weighed to get it titled in CA. Mine scaled out, half tank fuel, stock wheels (which are heavy!) and the box setup like yours at 6480 lbs.

    Yes the wheels are heavy... my H2's with 295/70/17 were a couple pounds lighter than the oem's. At least now I have a starting point and can keep track as I install stuff back in. It adds up quickly...

    Yeah, I agree that it is good to know. Nice thing is we have a GVW of 9450 lbs so we have a lot of room left. When I had my Dodge Ram with Cummins diesel and the Four Wheel Camper popup, I scaled in about 8400 lbs. with a max GVW of 8800 lbs. Since the "camper" is already part of the M1010 at the scaled weight, I am figuring about a 1000 lbs. max with additional build out. Still puts me way under what my Ram setup weighed, which I am happy about.

    Intake vent for the heater is reinstalled in its new location. I turned it to keep it low enough for a bench on that side of the interior. No pics of the fab of the old duct into the new version due to scratching of head to make the right cuts to make it work. But Iím happy with how it turned out! The hole cutting ceremony was a test in patience on this one but I got it done!!! The white is clear exterior caulk that hasn't cured.

    The remnants of duct work modifications. Then took the time to cover up my work and made it match the walls. I also spent some time with the fuse panel in the back. The wires on the walls have not had power no matter what I tried, the GPFU switch in the dash made the relays click but nothing. The wiring diagram says they should be pink! My eyes say they are red. I first pulled the plugs to check for power, got both 12v and 24v, relay clicks but nothing on the outlet side. I finally pulled a relay off the wall to look closely at it. I found the prong that should feed the outlet side of the plug was bent so it wouldn't go into the plug. Accidentally? On purpose? I don't know but I have power to all those wires now. That gives a total of 6 usable circuits in the box with two wires feeding the other side. Picked up a 200 amp circuit breaker to replace the 60 amp one on the Anderson plug. I'm going to put that to use...

    Here are my thoughts and goals added onto the alternator diagram I did... Fuse values are what's comes in the fuse block.
