Re: Sojourner

I was out in Gimel today with Lori and we were discussing the side door location. I was originally thinking of doing the opening immediately ahead of the rear wheel on the right side. We were considering doing it more midway between the front and rear wheels. This would give us a bit more room for the dinette and make the entry technically between the kitchen and dining/living area giving us easy access to either. Bringing in groceries and such would be very easy to load from the outside and we wouldn't be coming directly out of the bedroom/bath to a stairwell.

I'm wondering if it really matters where one places the door as the frame is obviously not being compromised and the body is pretty much one piece resting on the frame. I'm thinking if anything the framing is heavier midships than at the wheel wells anyhow.

Any insights? Those who have framed in doors on the side have any regrets?

Re: Sojourner

While working on one of my projects I have to get done to clear time and space to work on Gimel I thought I'd stroll over and take a look at the fridge in the travel trailer I have falling apart around itself here. Lori and I have discussed all the options for refrigeration and since we want to be as off grid as possible and be able to boondock if need be the RV unit seemed like a good fit. We hadn't operated it in over 8 years though as the travel trailer (piece of junk it is) has been falling apart as it sits. No, I am not a fan of Terry travel trailers. Anyhow, I was a bit skeptical of whether this unit would actually be any good or not. The first thing I did was bypass the circuit board and hook the 110VAC directly to the heating element to test the cooling unit. I didn't see any signs of leaking or anything like that so I was a bit hopeful. After hooking the power to the element to test, I went inside to open the fridge and see what things looked like in there. When I opened the doors I was not too happy as the shelves had begun rusting. Nothing crazy like falling apart but enough to need to refurbish them totally. Here's some pics of what they look like after removal and disassembly.







Needless to say, a new finish is required. the first step is to get rid of the rust and any of the old electroplating. Time to acid bath. I'm soaking them in muratic acid for a while to get rid of all the rust and hopefully remove the plating. Once stripped they'll go into a phosphoric acid bath to treat for paint. We plan on using duracoat http://www.duracoat-firearm-finishes.com/ on the shelves since it has served us well in harsh use.



The plan is to install the fridge in the galley and instead of venting through the roof use muffin fans and vent out the side like those installed in slide-outs. I really want to keep from cutting any more holes in the roof than absolutely needed.

We want to change out the look of the fridge as well. It's raised wood panels with a strange color beige (putty) trim. Seems this is the only trim color available for this model as well. Does anyone out there have any ideas on the best paint to paint plastic with? I'd like something durable and not prone to scratching off.

Good news on the test of the cooling unit as well. After 12 hours it got to 33 deg.F in the crisper. No problem there with tempss on the outside getting near 90 today.

Krylon always works, especially the primer and paint combo. Otherwise, if you have a local hobby shop, either Testor's Model Master enamel or Tamiya acrylic in the rattlecan, primed and then sealed with a clear top coat (Future usually works very well).

I've had good luck using Rustoleum Painter's Touch spray paint. I used the Clear Matte as a primer for the laminate flooring we are putting on the wall. I'm letting the paint cure before we start installing them. I painted the laminate flooring with latex paint (faux finish). I will protect the wall with clear water based poly after installing.

I painted the white freezer (metal not plastic) with Gloss Black Appliance Epoxy. It turned out great. I had painted the soft vinyl coated handle with FlexiDip. But it has peeled off (just like it is supposed too... silly me but it's still on the glass storage jars) so I am going to try something else.

Allow your paint to cure for a week to fully dry top to bottom (or inside to outside). Just because it is "dry to the touch" does not mean it is fully cured. Until it is fully cured it can easily scratched.

Re: Sojourner

Thanks for the suggestion for paint. Gonna do some tests and yes one needs to allow paint to fully cure. Far too many get impatient. Checked on the parts in the acid bath today and it's working fast on the rust but gonna take a while on the galvanized areas.

Re: Sojourner

Does anyone out there know where I might get a killer deal on a 4.10 or 3.90 differential for my skoolie? The linecard says it has a N 190 rear axle on it. I have 4.78 gears and while they do alright, I think I can get higher gear set and hold highway speeds easier without running up the rev's.

Re: Sojourner

A couple questions to those out there who have made changes in their gear ratio's. How much of a change did you make and how did it work out for you? I'm beginning to thing I might need to go 3.73. From what I can tell my rpms would be 1778 at 60mph using http://www.crawlpedia.com/rpm_gear_calculator.htm.

Max torque for my engine is 520@1800.

Re: Sojourner

Although not directly related to my project in the usual sense of the word I am posting some pics of a few of the projects I had to get finished before I can really get started in earnest. I told myself I could not get heavy into another project until I got some things finished around here. One of the things that's derailed me over the past few years is traveling to various places in the world teaching and building aquaponics systems. The first thing I got done was a 10 barrel half Barrel-ponics system I started 2 years ago and never seemed to get around to finishing. It's Lori's "basil bomb".


The second thing I finished was a 80 barrel half Barrel-Ponics system I started on almost 4 years ago and in a totally other location and configuration. I was planning on building 2 of these this size but instead made raised bed container gardens where they were supposed to be. This system has a 5000 gallon fish tank, 80 barrel half growbeds with over 12 tons of gravel. The entire system operates on a single 175 watt pump. We're hoping to grow crops commercially in it for a restaurant that buys our produce.



The third thing I got done on my list is a solar dehydrator I have been talking about doing for years.



Putting the finishing touches on a roller mill to make our own feed here for our chickens. Hope to have it done by weeks end and then begin working on a car for my youngest daughter who decided she wanted to fix up a Neon I bought for parts. She's about to get an education !!

When I do get a few minuted here and there I'm doing things to get set up for Gimel's transformation. I'm going to try to slip over and at least remove the fridge this week as well. The shelved did not have enough metal to make it through the rust removal in tact. Gonna have to make some new shelves from scratch.
