TJB Jewellann.
No , I really meant all of that , the last bit did sound a little winky though.
It's great that you found people in the parking lot that needed your unneeded stuff.
Even greater that you made a new friend !
I kind of hope that her story wasn't true .
I missed going to Nam by less than a week but I know how combat vets feel about fakers.

My thoughts are he needs to go back in and find out why the TS acts goofy when the headlights are on, he might've made a small mistake with the wiring of the trailer harness
Also he should remove that base, that should've been included in the quote

So far I've just had the van checked for the problems I've become aware of in the last 2 weeks or knew about going in to it.  My Mom and Sister are both so non mechanicly minded....well at least my Mom for sure.  There is a red toggle switch installed on the dash.  Our conversation sorta went like this...what's that toggle for?   a short...where/what?.. under the drivers seat....seat works fine....go ask the guy who did it......OK.  The guy sez there was/is a short? or something that wouldn't shut off completly and he couldn't find it so he put in the switch to flip after turning off ignition.  My Mom would go weeks without driving it about 2 to3yrs ago after she had a bad fall and the battery wouldn't start the van.  The battery was replaced and still a starting problem.  The funny thing is if the red toggle is a "kill" switch it sure isn't working....the van starts no matter what position it's in.   Another thing to add to the OMG WTF is wrong now list.

I'm sure Lon will pull base of seat.  After all I did ask about removing the seats and didn't mention the base's too. I'm going to try and pull the other 2 myself as they have locking/release system that has levers/handles to remove the seats and then base is bolted to floor.  

I may be able to work over the bases depending on where the bed and storage ends up going.  The base in front of side door really has to be pulled as that area may be the only place that isn't covered with bed/storage/totes/etc.

Angry AL weather is just like TX,  it can't make ups it's mind?   Monsoon?  Winter?  20's or mid 70's?  The cold makes my bones/joints HURT!   Sunday in the AM at a balmy 36 with a wind chill of 28 I washed and hung out 4 lines of clothes.  When it warmed p to the 40's Queenie and I cleaned the van and organized the things that are making their home in it.  Queenie is a very good supervisor.  She kept a close eye on me while laying in the sunshine with her woods cat that I call Tom Kat.

Mystery of Red Toggle Switch is solved..........I think.  I started cleaning and organizing at the front of the van working my way back closing the various doors as I finished a area.  From the rear doors I noticed the light at the side door step was still on.  I opened and closed the door and it stayed on.  Sooooo for some reason I had a epi-fanny    Idea   RED TOGGLE SWITCH   Idea  The one both my Mom and her mechanic said there's a short and neither one could tell me what or where.  Well that's not right ,Mom said it's under the seat, mech said he didn't know hence the toggle switch.  Well it turns off the step lights since they don't shut off when the doors are closed,  Why the fuse wasn't pulled or the bulbs simply removed I do not know.  Safari is going to L & K Auto. & getting class lll hitch and helper springs installed Thurs. so I'll ask about it then.

Can someone tell me how a big of a job is it to install a vent and fan in this hightop,  it's not just a flat roof.  Also at some future time I'd like to swap out stationary windows for some that will open.  The 3 side windows have a little slider abouy 6in by 12in and I can't get 2 of them open.

Queenie and I are taking the WD 40 and work on that while we wash mummy sleeping bag, afghan and vintage quilt at the laundromat.

High temp today around 52 then mid 70's for a few days so it's storage unit and Aliner time   Smile

I hope everyone has a good week....I intend too even if I do manage to PO a few folks......well at least I can keep myself entertained   Big Grin

Jewellann, reads like you are getting things done in a timely manner. It's nice to read of other people's progress.

You are right about Texas weather, it's supposed to get up near seventy this week, that has to be a contributor to the cold I acquired.

I've been trying to wean myself off of my magic sleeping potions and get rid of some of my meds. About 4 am this morning I broke down and took a pill as it seemed I would not sleep for awhile. Woke up at 'the crack of noon'. I had planned on quitting Xanax but all my friends and both of my youngest daughters told me not to, said I was irritable enough when I took them, don't quit. Smart-ass kids.

Good luck getting the van ready, Take Care....Rob

I use silicone spray for keeping the sliding windows working. Clean out as much dirt/dust/crap as possible first and re apply every so often if they start to stick again.

Thanks for the tip.

Is this spray not WD 40? I don't want to "gunk" up anything.  I hope the WD 40 is OK for the sliders on the top and bottom of the side door and all mechanical locks and hinges?

nope, WD is a water displacer, not a lube, get a can of silicone spray lube, you'll be glad you did
