ok, thanks for the advice oldcoot. i'll have to see what I can do.
but right now i'm cursing loudly.
I thought before I pulled up that the van looked a little bouncy. have just done some checks as I was going to head off further up the road. all my hitch etc. is nice and tight, no problems there.
so I happen to stick my head up under the van. WTF!!!
it seems there are ribs that come out from the main I beam on either side that bolt to the under body of the van. this must be what holds the whole lot to the chassis?
and now that I look at them ribs they are prity piss weak in build/size! IMO.
well the 1st 2 rows of bolts both sides have lost their nuts and have been rubbing on the rib so are useless and the rest along the way either side are loose. one of the ribs has cracked through.
I've gone along and tightened the ones I could. but does anyone know if I can access these mounting bolts with-out pulling the van apart??
i'm kinda in the middle of now where, cannot exactly go down to the miter10 store and get some replacement bolts and nuts.
that must be why a panel in the lower side of the bedroom has popped off a little, I noticed that yesterday and just thought it has somehow pulled from the little staples that hold it on.
