My in-laws left we with a 1994 Roadtrek 190, built on a Dodge B350 van. It is parked on our property and used as my "in-law" unit on wheels. I have taken it on a couple of camping trips and it does well. What is the most impressive thing about this little rig is that it is fully self contained. Short of having a washer/dryer, it has everything a big RV does. Heater, stove, fridge, sink, microwave, toilet, shower, water heater, and everything works (kind of). The in-laws are thinking about letting this hulk of 90's American steel go and I am thinking about becoming the new official owner. I have never been the RV type. I can camp out of a back pack, motorcycle, truck, heck just what I carry in my pockets will allow me to survive in the woods. But now that I have two young children (youngest just turned 6 months), it is so much easier to get out and camp from a little class B RV. This picture gives you an idea of the beast I am dealing with. Not mine just a stolen web pic. Being that it is from the 90's it needs some work. I wanted to get your guys's opinion on a couple of items that need attention. I want to see what I am getting myself into. I am capable of doing most of the work myself, though have very limited time. This isn't going to be a "struggle van" type rebuild. Leaks-One of the biggest issues is that the fiberglass roof leaks. Where exactly is unknown. Every possible location has been caulked and rubber spray sealed yet it still leaks. The front windows can use a re-caulking. What I suspect is that water is leaking from the rear AC vents My thought is to remove the vent and seal it off with a plate. If this works I will remove the AC unit entirely. I nor my in-laws have ever used the AC. With it deleted I would have a large area inside for storage. Lose Steering-There is a lot of play in the steering. When driving, I look like one of the Duke boys, sawing the steering wheel back and forth. I can move the steering wheel 20 degrees (?) with no effect on steering input. Makes driving mountain roads difficult. What is most likely the culprit? I have been into the suspension and replaced the front springs as well as given it a decent inspection. http://mrpulldown.blogspot.com/2009/11/road-trek-lifting-94-dodge-van.html Nothing looks to be amiss. I have jacked it in the air and given most of the components a good tug. Nothing seems to be loose or have play. I suspect it is one or more of the steering/suspension components. However I do not want to replace all of them. Is there one that is more likely to be worn. Steering tie rods, center link, pitman arm, gear box, steering shaft u-joint, ball joints, control arm bushings, wheel bearing?? OD/Tach-on the dash is a over drive button. However pushing the button at highway speeds does not seem to do anything? I suspect that the OD is not working. The button is connected and the wires run off into the depths of the dash. I would really like to have this, as the 10 MPG average could use a little help. Any way to test or fix? On the same note, it would be nice to have a tachometer. At least I would know for sure if the OD was working. How does one go about installing a tach. What does one use as a signal pick up/where? Where would be the best place to mount such a tach, A-pillar, steering column? Transmission cooler/temp gauge-When I first took possession of the van I noticed that the bottom of the Tranny pan was a little "wet" upon checking the ATF level it seemed quite a bit low. I filled it. However I believe that I never got the ATF to the proper working temp. Upon climbing Tioga Pass road, I over heated the ATF causing it spew out all over the exhaust and caused quite a "spy hunter" isk smoke screen for the cars which were piled up behind me. Seems like it would be nice to have a AT temp gauge. Is the a readily available port/bung which to thread in a temp sensor and gauge. A quick look up shows several ATF coolers. I am sure a rig like this could benefit from a heavier duty cooling unit. Thoughts experience?? Trailer Hitch-Due to the rear storage box a conventional B350 trailer hitch will not work. Roadtrek use to make a trailer hitch specific for this rig. Though they no longer do so they will supply a "napkin" sketch of it. Scary. I would primarily want a hitch so that I could...you guessed it... carry a motorcycle carrier. The way which the tounge load is support is minimal. So I thought, what about a front mount. No off the shelf hitch is available for a B350, but there are plenty for the 350/250 and 150 dodge trucks. Will one of these just bolt on to the van. Thank you gentlemen for reading this. If you have any answered or experinace to these questions, Dodge Vans, Road treks, that might help me with the above mentioned issues. Please share.
