    Mattresses

    I and the Wife had a king size waterbed for quite some time than it started getting leaks and after multiple patches we got rid of it and bought a king size Serta with memory foam . I must say though the ole waterbed was kinda nice to crawl into , warm in the Winter and we would turn the heater down some in the Summer so it was cooler I kind of miss the " Ocean Motion " too .

    5288 cab power

    Yep they are , need some extendable arms to put the mounting bolts in on the inside of the cab and all the while reaching around to the firewall side to start the nuts on the bolts .

    Mounting bolts can be a PITA , did it fix your problem ?

    5288 cab power

    Sounds like the cab solenoid to me . It is located by removing the door pannel door by your feet where the fuses are located . The cab solenoid is in the lower right area of the compartment . Next time your cab fan and radio stop working jump accross the 2 big posts and see if they start working .

    Heated Seat

    HyCapacity used to list a seat that was both heated and cooled , I checked but dont see it listed anymore they must have discontinued it . If I remember right it was for the Magnums . It was spendy though .

    Congrats on 12 !!! Bet it is alot of fun when they all come to visit . Sounds like that Grandson is going to follow in his Dads footsteps on the farm . Our oldest Grandaughter is the 3 year old the middle picture the one with the blue shirt is going to be a farm girl through and though . She is a spunky little Gal , loves riding in the tractor with her Dad sitting in the Buddy seat most of the day , feeding and being around cattles , heck she even was telling Grandpa the steps to pulling a calf and is accurate on the process . She can name alot of the different breeds of cows by looking at them . Pretty surprising what kids can pickup on even at her age . She is the one that is going to have a little Brother or Sister , not sure how that is going to go , might be a little jealousy factor there having to share the attention of Mom and Dad and Grandpa and Grandma .

    You are so right Mike . I remember in school when 3:20 in the afternoon took what seemed like an eternity to come .

    😁 Yep we wouldn't be doing our job if we didn't spoil them so Mom and Dad can try to unspoil them until the next time they visit .

    TA questions

    Yes , you remove the coil from the valve and unscrew the piece that the coil was on , the poppet part of the piece . Check the orings also .

    TA questions

    There is a switch on the engine side of the firewall that the arm from the TA lever actuates , maybe the plunger of the switch is stuck down allowing the electric TA solenoid to stay energized , if this isnt the case the poppet that the solenoid operates is stuck or Orings are leaking .
