Nope, only a leak was noticed while it was at BOR working on the FF, said it was coming from the lower hose fitting on the water pump, but didnít want to take it farther than that, not really their thing. So I kept an eye on the leak knowing it was possible my water pump was on itís way out.

When I started noticing the noise I chalked it up to pump failure, good thing I got under the hood to inspect and I was close to home. We had just gotten back from a weekend ski trip before noticing the noise, and I made it up to Loveland and back after the noise started, it got worse on that trip which prompted me to have a look.

Sabotage?? I donít know, itís possible, been in a few shops this last year, and never heard of these bolts just walking themselves out and I havenít had any work done that would entail removing that pulley or bolts.....

Galley box

Went to Vanspecialties and got Galley box installed. Quite happy with it seems like a high quality piece.

Does it lift off if you want to remove it? Looks good!

Yes it does. Very well built with an aluminun frame and heavy duty marine hinges.

Aside from a tune up which was much needed I redid the E vap canister assembly and the valve and a bunch of other maintenance stuff. My brother did the plugs, he said that 4 of 8 were loose 2 on each side.

As far as the conversion goes I've been planning it and that's about as far as it's gone so far. Next couple weeks I wanna get the grill guard and the body work finished.

^ Nice. That was my very first addition. Had the bottle opener before I even had the van

edit: Today, I replaced fuse #23 because my cigarette lighter wasn't working...which meant my dashboard USB wasn't working. Another long day of modifications.

Suggestion: Install a magnet below the bottle opener and save yourself from bending over to pick up the tops!

Good idea.... I was kinda thinking about hanging a small bucket under it, but I know I'd forget to take it off before driving and loose it on the road somewhere.

It could also be mounted closer to the refer, reducing that long walk to the back of the van.
