    BlueVan
    2015 MR Passenger 3.7L - So far, 85k miles and probably 30k more in idling.


    Unexpected fixes so far:

    1. Stock alternator will need replacement soon, squeaking on startup, I oiled it but am planning to change soon to FoMoCo HD 230 Amp alternator. ($110 from Amazon, yay!)
    2. Recall on rubber drive line connection (guibo). Uneventful.
    3. Exhaust rattle/leak - Had custom shop weld a patch on the Y pipe at 40k miles, good ever since.
    4. 6th gear shutter at 80k - Fixed by replacing trans filter and 5 qts of fluid (its all they could get out).



    So far so good, happy with the box!


    Installed goodies:
    100Ah of Batteries on an automatic battery tie switch.
    Thetford MSD toilet with underbody pump to evac it.
    Costway 10K BTU AC unit mounted under the bed.
    1K MSW Inverter (1999 Zantrex Portawattz for the win!)
    Haier 120VAC Mini Fridge
    Serta SoftHeat Blanket (Its the only one that works on MSW inverters)
