Previous Owner Skylight Hack

Maybe well-intentioned, but this is the amount of silicone I removed from the skylight sealing area, good grief! It's been fixed right since.

Skylight Overhaul

Previous owner decided to use silicone (without luck apparently) so repaired the fiberglass around the area and replacing nearly everything. Many times camping in the damp Pacific Northwest since and no more leaks.

This one cleaned up nicely, I'm certain it was replaced at one point. All cleaned/sealed & ready for service.

Wires to the digital idle stabilizer are cracked and loose. Might be causing intermittant engine stalling/loss of spark.

Vanny's Big Adventure Part 2
oldhuldy67
Who knew the Blue Ridge Parkway would be closed? Not me.. So, on to a lovely little Panther Creek State Park on Lake Holston in TN. Lunch in Rogersville, TN and a historic 1824 inn,tavern and restaraunt
where presidents Jackson, Polk and Johnson (Andrew) once slept. We only ate lunch in a great old piece of history...just like our Vanagon..sort of.
We enjoyed a walk at the park on a sunny, 58* day and spectacular sunset on our way to Blacksburg, VA to wakeup to snow the day before Thanksgiving Day...from inside a warm house. But, the PROPEX performed perfectly the night we camped when the cold air began to move in ahead of the snow.
After another restful day with dear family friends Vanny was ready to get back on the road. It wasn't the happy 35 in 3rd gear that the Parkway promised but I26 across Unicoj ridge, with the 5000ft Hughes OK, I know it's not a novel or even new idea..but, it was for me. I needed a little headroom for short stops or "pre-stealth setup."
Now, off for the Blue Ridge.. Much to be thankful forRidge and Mt . Mitchell visible off to our left on the way down toward Ashville was close enough...this time.
The only mechanical issue was early on. The power, even with a fresh 2L air cooled engine is a lesson in conservative driving skills I think all those who seek to pass a driving test should master. She was loosing all response to the gas pedal when we rolled off to the side next to a quiet pasture somewhere north of Blue Ridge,GA.. A pleasant sunny and safe place to rearrange the kit and open the engine lid. I checked all the important connections, removed and reconnected the plug wires when I noticed several cracks in the L-shaped rubber boot between the air meter and the throttle body...I hope my terms are correct. Air could sucked in, I reasoned and upset the ECU to no end. So, I applied a little Plumbers Goop to "restore" this part when I found the clamp to be loose enough to spin around by itself..could have been the reason for the troublesome idle I have been wondering about

I checked all the important connections, removed and reconnected the plug wires when I noticed several cracks in the L-shaped rubber boot between the air meter and the throttle body...I hope my terms are correct. Air could sucked in, I reasoned and upset the ECU to no end. So, I applied a little Plumbers Goop to "restore" this part when I found the clamp to be loose enough to spin around by itself..could have been the reason for the troublesome idle I have been wondering about

Vanny's Big Adventure Part 2
oldhuldy67
Who knew the Blue Ridge Parkway would be closed? Not me.. So, on to a lovely little Panther Creek State Park on Lake Holston in TN. Lunch in Rogersville, TN and a historic 1824 inn,tavern and restaraunt
where presidents Jackson, Polk and Johnson (Andrew) once slept. We only ate lunch in a great old piece of history...just like our Vanagon..sort of.
We enjoyed a walk at the park on a sunny, 58* day and spectacular sunset on our way to Blacksburg, VA to wakeup to snow the day before Thanksgiving Day...from inside a warm house. But, the PROPEX performed perfectly the night we camped when the cold air began to move in ahead of the snow.
After another restful day with dear family friends Vanny was ready to get back on the road. It wasn't the happy 35 in 3rd gear that the Parkway promised but I26 across Unicoj ridge, with the 5000ft Hughes OK, I know it's not a novel or even new idea..but, it was for me. I needed a little headroom for short stops or "pre-stealth setup."
Now, off for the Blue Ridge.. Much to be thankful forRidge and Mt . Mitchell visible off to our left on the way down toward Ashville was close enough...this time.
The only mechanical issue was early on. The power, even with a fresh 2L air cooled engine is a lesson in conservative driving skills I think all those who seek to pass a driving test should master. She was loosing all response to the gas pedal when we rolled off to the side next to a quiet pasture somewhere north of Blue Ridge,GA.. A pleasant sunny and safe place to rearrange the kit and open the engine lid. I checked all the important connections, removed and reconnected the plug wires when I noticed several cracks in the L-shaped rubber boot between the air meter and the throttle body...I hope my terms are correct.
