Re: Anyone done a Monroe SA1930 sterring damper install?

Hey Reddeer, our B190 is a 99. If you go to the tire and suspension forum about the twelfth post down by Brenda there are some pictures of an installation of the SA1930. Check it out. Good luck.

Re: Anyone done a Monroe SA1930 sterring damper install?

Hey Reddeer, I had a SA1930 installed in Aug. 2010. It improved my handling tremendously. I was having a bad case of wandering and the steering stabilizer fixed most of it. Tire pressure seems to help some too. I run around 55-60 in front and always 80 in the rear. My local mechanic installed mine i...

Re: Vehicle cab light bulb switch.

Same here, I used to own a 95 E250 Sportsmobile and it had what they call "puddle" lights. I also noticed the bulbs were missing, duh... when I replaced them they would stay on every time the doors were open. Bye Bye bulbs. My 99 B190 doesn't have these lights, and I don't miss them one bit. Have a ...

Re: What should I know about towing behind the B190

Skater, when you had your accident, did your towed vehicle have brakes? And what caused the accident? Just curious.

Re: What should I know about towing behind the B190

Hey kentuckian, saw your post and thought I would put my 2 cents in. We are towing a 2001 Jeep Cherokee XJ 4x4, auto. trans., part time transfer case, and love having it with us. All I do is put the transfer case in neutral, transmission in park with the ignition key in ON, not start and away we go....

Re: exterior window cover

We picked up a roll of reflectix at Home Depot and had enough to do all of our windows. Cut each one just a little larger than the actual window opening and they hold themselves in place. Only put in the ones you want/need at different times during the day or night. We use these in addition to the c...

Re: 120 outlets in 1997

Your 97 should be just like my 99, and I have 1 beside the porch light switch, 1 above the stove, 1 above the fridge in the pantry which is really for a microwave, and 1 above the sink in the bathroom inside the medicine cabinet. Hope this helps.

Thanks Planck, good idea on the innertube. Will do. I will also put an extra coat of wax on the door before I mount the tire. Hopefully the only time I'll have to get back there is to check the pressure periodically. Thanks again

Just got off the phone with TruckNvans and the guy said they supply large washers with the carrier. No problem, I'm sure I have a piece of scrap metal lying around somewhere I can use for backup. Looks like they haven't changed the design since they built yours. I can appreceiate a "don't fix it if ...

Thanks Planck, pics would be great when you get around to it and not too much trouble. Northern MI sounds great, wife and I talk about visiting there quite a bit. Maybe someday. Weather sounds really nice. Have a good day.

Thanks Planck, I plan to remove the cover on my door soon and see what it looks like inside. Turned 70 in March and so far 68 days of triple digit heat makes it hard for me to do too much outside. Just don't handle the heat like I used to. Glad you mentioned the SS hardware, I hadn't thought about t...

Thanks for the feedback weekender, your carrier looks alot like one I found at TrucknVans accessories for $105. Appears to be heavy duty and attaches like yours. I think I could probably beef up the mount opposite the hinges with a backing plate of some sort. Anyway it looks better than most i have ...
