Foam Blowing Out of the Dash Fix

A couple of years ago, while traveling on Route 66 in humid Missouri, chunks of foam started blowing out of our dash vents, filling the cab with sticky bits of disintegrating material – quite a mess. I had remembered reading on the ev_update list that this was from the “blender box” in the air conditioning system […]

Platform Bed Details

Here are some photos of how our platform bed is put together. The wood is 3/4 inch birch plywood, the hinges are brass piano hinges, and aluminum angle is used to create the “box” portion and other supports. Just click on the photo for a bigger view, if you want. Use the “Contact” page to […]

Mini Table for Coffee

We only travel with one table, but once you have dishes on that, you don’t have much room to prepare anything – like coffee after lunch! We mocked up a “mini” table out of plywood before our desert trip to see if this idea would work – it was such a success, I now need […]

Modified Control Panel

  This is how our control panel above the fridge looks now. Let me give you a tour, explain what I did, and share some pointers on what NOT to do… The stock EuroVan control panel is black, has only one 12 volt outlet, and on the 95, has a very stupid layout for the […]

Fiamma Awning Installation

I had a “Carefree” awning installed on the EuroVan – the awning that was “stock” from Winnebago – it was a terrible, terrible, thing. I could never get the Carefree OUT of the case without banging up my fingers, or smashing the wife’s, as she holds out the end that I FINALLY was able to […]

Shady Boy Awning Installation

One of the awning choices for a EuroVan is the Shady Boy. This awning is made in Canada, of US materials, and has a very compact case, and a not too difficult set up procedure. The installation and set up instructions leave something to be desired, though. Wolfgang at Shady Boy is VERY quick to […]

Propane tank and regulator repair

My propane tank had a bad “service valve” – the part you turn on and off. Every time I would turn it on or off, a great cloud of freezing propane vapor would escape – the valve needed some work! I learned that rebuild kits for the valves are no longer available, as new valves […]
