Fixed! Voltage drop and poor connection all the way.

When I went to take off the main ground just now to pull the starter, it didn’t feel tight. Put a wrench on all 8 battery connections and it fired right up. Most of them took an eighth of a turn to snug up. They’re dielectric greased and have no lockwashers...

Only had to tighten up loose bolts in new steering parts on the buggy and put side tins on, so why not ignore that completely and build actual mounts for Ac unit and generator?

Why not indeed.

60% done.

New insulated ducts for Ac installed.
Project was motivated by how incredibly hot it was between the cab and box when I climbed in there to swap out my ducts for the insulated units.

Ac will be behind the fuel tank, generator about 18” behind that. I think I’m doing that I’ve decided water tanks will have to go inboard of the frame above/next to the driveshaft.

Mounted.

Generator needs a flap and to be raised almost a foot.

Cooling better while under way (on an already cool night...). I’ll see how it keeps up tomorrow.

Do you run the generator and then like a house stand up AC unit while you’re driving down the road?

That white box is the Ac/heat unit.

4” ducts for intake and outlet are in the back sleeper wall.

I want to try smike’s inventor and see if the truck alternator will keep up with the load so I can not run the generator so much.

May have killed it somehow. Startup smoke was notably worse last time I fueled it yesterday. It ran dry (saw dry tank bottom, nothing shut it down first), fueled it this morning, and it wouldn’t start.

Took Titan for a walk before leaving and came back to a non-running truck. Dies after 30-60 Sec repeatably. No red light, but oil|water light doesn’t stop blinking when oil pressure comes up. Code set for low coolant. Confused what the computer is doing but coolant was low and no issues after filling.

Expansion tank is buried way into the engine tunnel. 1-2” clearance from rad cap to floor. So have to tilt the cab. A fitting failed while raising. It would keep going up but I heard the cab latches set. After I lowered, the cab latches wouldn’t extend. Cab is held down with a 2” ratchet strap right now.

It started raining as I finished walking Titan. Bit more than half an hour of work in the rain to add water and strap the cab down.

Ripped the exhaust rain cap flapper off its hinge on overhanging trees, probably on Lower Road leaving the track. But could have been on any of about 40 miles of shit I didn’t belong on. Detours suck. Closed roads without posted detours suck more. Had 2 of one and one of the second.

Is this thread fucked in any other Tapatalk users’ phones? Harry’s question follows a post from May...

Interaxle lock was enough but I could use diff locks too.
Didn’t bend the cradle on second contact.

And pics don’t want to upload. Ttalk error. Wonder if related.

Yeah doubling of last or second to last post weirdness has been ongoing for me for a month or so. I’ve not reported the bug. Shame on me, take a corner off my tech nerd chit.
