so yesterday i got the awning mounted, today we used it. loaded everyone up and headed to the river, well ok im not sure if we were at the reservoir or the river that feeds it lol. found 2 issues i need to address before our camping trip in august, it needs a bigger radiator (heats up going up hills and at higher speeds), and the doors need new seals (alot of dust flying in). other than that it was a nice day.
Though putting an awning on the side is considered the norm , I would be tempted to attach it at the rear of the suburban. The side doors can block dust,plus all your gear is usually in the rear.
Anyway you do it , having fun is what its all about!
thursday i should be able to order my new radiator, aluminum core with aluminum tanks for $145 shipped. Also hoping to be able to order a windstar dual electric fan assembly, new (since theres no junk yards around here) from summit for $105.
No more cooling issues
im excited, i just ordered my aluminum radiator and windstar electric fans
called the local junkyard today about a door hand for the back barn door, $40 for a used one, i can buy a brand new one for $25
