  1. Hi when I replaced the slide seal on my 2000 Diplomat, the seal was similar to an Auto bulb seal with an additional wiper moulded on. The seal just clips onto the slide opening. It was fiddly to fit due to the confined workspace, and having to make cuts in the blade at the vertical to horizontal transitions. TIP run some sealer into the seal before or after installation to prevent water rotting the metal “U”.
  2. I had a similar problem with the speedometer on my 2000 Diplomat, same cure!
  3. My 2000 Diplomat did the same thing after being left parked for a year or so without being moved. The problem was caused by the rubber link that attached the ride height linkage to the chassis having perished. I resolved it by replacing all 3 linkages with stainless steel Rose joints, threaded rod and stand-offs.
  4. Surely, everyone has the right to retire at the end of a long career working more hours than most people, and reap the rewards of that work. Good luck to him!
  5. Both my 2000 Diplomat mirror arms and bases had badly peeling chrome plating. I contacted Velvac tech support, who emailed me a template to correctly identify the base radius, and contact details for a U.K. (where I’m based) dealer who could supply the parts.
  6. Dwight, If you are talking about the telephone type connector, you shouldn’t need to cut it off; the 4 way plug should plug into the 6 way socket on the new A/C circuit board.
  7. I had a similar problem on my 2000 diplomat, I ended up replacing one of the switches on the panel: an easy job.
  8. If your system is like the one on my 2000 Diplomat, the motor drives a long horizontal shaft, to which is fitted a pair of spur gears. On mine, the spur gears are attached to the shaft with Roll pins, one of which may have broken, so the slide is only being driven from one end and dragged in at the other end.
  9. When the pressure switch on mine was damaged by a slow water leak, I removed the microswitch and replaced it with one I purchased from a local electronic component supplier over here in the U.K. Check Amazon.com for USA, and a more exact match to the exact component.
  10. Have you set your solar charge controller to the correct battery type, eg: AGM, SLA, Lithium etc.
  11. Think yourselves lucky guys, over here in the U.K. Diesel is at an all time low of $6.89 a gallon.
  12. Could be the scissor mechanism on top of the door clunking due to wear in the pivot/rivet.
  13. I purchased 6 of the item below plus 1 metre of the stainless rod and a pack of the misalignment spacers along with shouldered 8mm bolts. You might find imperial sizes more convenient in the USA. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/283414435966 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/152796756209 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/381655857006
