Unfortunately, my mechanic was ill in May - probably Corona. He never sees a doctor, he always tries to recover with the help of home remedies...63 years old. From the old beat. :? Anyway, there is some progress:

I have bought a second Dometic AC unit in order to create two climate zones in our Revcon. A Dometic 3000 can be used over the bedroom in the back, the second Dometic 2200 will be mounted above the dinette/sofa in the front.

Hello Eric,

Yes - I´m trying to do my best. My Revcon story has just started... :lol:

The second AC is already on the top, but my mechanik hasn´t installed it yet. New shiny red color on the lower sides of the Revcon.

Finally, I have found some wheel nuts that really fit. A member of the German Astro/Safari Van Forum sent me the link.

One nut broke during the wheel balancing procedure last year. The mechanic was not aware of the left-hand thread on the driver´s side.

The worn sealing is not the problem, I can order it from Rockauto.

I hope that this pipe will fit. Some adjustments will be necessary. ScoutII (German Astro/Safari Forum) gave me the link.
