I am a new member from WV, my husband and I have an RV built on a 1992 Dodge.  The build was by L.E.R and we don't know much more about it.

Anyone know the towing capacity, or have an opinion for a 79 Dodge Delta.  440-3 engine runs strong and smooth.  Has trailer hookup for brakes. GVWR = 10,500.  Want ot pull my 24ft pontoon. homemade trailer is somewhat of a monolith on its own.

Thanks Lakota, I had my suspicions.  I'm thinking our a/c in the Bounder was similar.  But wasn't sure.  When we get plugged in I'll test the hydro flame out, but I figure for that small of a space catalytic is a good way to go (a Mr. Heater we can tie into the tank one day).  I'm sending the BF a carbon monoxide detector for the trip over this December, but going to have to wait on a propane detector until we can get it here and can get it wired in.  He won't be sleeping with the Mr. Heater on, so I think that should all be safe enough.

A roof top A/C unit that has a Warm/Heat selection,, it is NOT an actual heater,,, its an air warmer,, You can check by taking the inside cover off when you clean the air filters and there should be a distribution coil that gets warm,not hot. The fan blows the air across this coil sending out warm air,, basically takes the chill out of the air.

Ha, my apologies.  I should have caught that was a last name!  

No plate on propane (where there should be one) and it's a square one mounted in, so no backside to speak of (underneath may be a different story).  That said, itwill be easy enough to determine a close approximation when we go to fill it.  I expect 20 lbs, 30 would be a bonus.  More curiosity at this point.  As are tank sizes...they are what they are :-)  

But!  The liquid calculator is a good idea once we, um, find those as well - LOL. Okay, those won't be hard.  Just wasn't on the priority list.  

Thanks again :-)  So far I've really enjoyed my conversations with everyone.  It's good to finally have a rig so I can really participate!

That's why we are here all together. Great group of people. It takes a while to demystify these old rigs. I am still in the process. We did not have any manuals as well. There are calculators on line to figure out your volume of liquid on grey water tank. Length x width x height. Your propane tank should have a stamped plate with numbers on it that will tell you what size it is. Look on the back side.
To confuse you more - I go by P. for Pamela. My last name is Valllerie. Just remember the girl with two first names. Have fun figuring out your new treasure. P.

Thanks, Vallerie for posting about Rich's comment I would have missed it! 

At this point I'm thinking it has to be mounted underneath, or in the engine where we're missing it.  Going back to storage next week. The steps also are fold in - but we're going to scrape the floor, shimmy underneath and see what we shall find.  

There's quite a few mysteries - didn't get any manuals and trying to figure out things like propane tank size, black and grey tank size, the type of refrigerator, whether the coleman a/c unit up top also has a heat strip (it has a "warmer" setting on the knob but not sure that means "hot").  Should have a model number but not found that yet, either.  Haven't found a single switch or gauge - like to monitor anything, or turn on the water pump.  All in good fun!  Like a treasure hunt.  At least we know WHAT we're aiming for.  

Appreciate the suggestions!
