Penthouse Installed: Clock, Temperature, Voltmeter

When sleeping in the penthouse, if I have a waking moment and the want to check on stuff, I find it inconvenient to find/login to my phone to see things I may be curious about. Things like the time, temperature, and house battery voltage. For a quick glance I installed this motorcycle gauge, arms reach from where I sleep. Works Great!

Penthouse Latch Handles Rattle

My penthouse latch handles would rattle incessantly from the slightest road bump. Washboard roads would drive me crazy! I slid bits of fuel line over the hook-bolts, problem solved! Everything seems limo quiet after this fix.

Thatís a good idea! I used shrink-wrap tubing on mine to the same effect.

Garage
changed the breather vents on the front axle, rear axle and transfer case.
we used 5/16" fuel hose with spring clamps and UNI filters - https://www.summitracing.com/parts/ufi-up101
the transfer case + rear axle connect in a 'T' at the fuel door (the two hoses run on each side of the filler neck beneath the gas cap) - https://www.summitracing.com/parts/ear-782405erl
the front axle loops over the coolant bottle bracket.

also uploaded a blessed performance tune - ecobeast street - https://blessedperformance.com/bless...stroke-tuning/
need to get some miles on the van so the strategies learn.
the ID street tune that was loaded is nice and we're just looking for a tune that offers better performance with mileage gains.
there are fewer companies that tune for a van.
