It’s hard to follow this thread with all the sophisticated technical terms being thrown around
ok, sounds good Andy! Thanks!! Let us know what you come up with- if I/someone at the shop can do it while im home it would be nice to be able to work on it in the shop with all the tools!😁 going home today and will be there until the 26th. But back again on the 29th till the 2nd! Haha so we have a couple options….
Also- Dad!! can I request that we order some metal (if it’s not too late) so we can build my ladder?!?! 😁

So last night I was out running a bunch of errands and the airplane fan came on… I pulled over and checked the radiator and it was blowing cold air. But, it turned off after about 5 minutes, and by the time I was home (only a couple minutes later) I could feel that the radiator was already getting warm again… I have been adding more coolant to that tank behind the lisense plate each day, so I feel like the coolant is almost all replaced at this point too!

Ok!! I will check that next time!
yesterday the tank behind the license plate was still full, but I was able to add some water to the front…
Glad to hear I can still be driving it, especially since I’ll be doing the big drive home in a couple days..!!
Audrey you’re on your way to becoming the KCW Vanagon master Happy belated birthday by the way
Thanks Will!!! 😁

Awesome! Yes, thank you! all good things to know!!
Last night I did notice the cycling of the hot and cold, but by the end of the drive it was pretty much hot the whole time! I could even feel some heat coming out the front vents when I only had the back heater on, which was nice 😁
We took it about a 30 minute drive away and back, and on the way back the airplane fan was on almost the entire time… the light never came on and it was running great, but I am guessing that means there is still more coolant to add? As suspected…

Yeah, it does feel good Pat!! Nothing like feeling confident to drive your van where ever you need to go! 😁 thank goodness for the KCW website and family!!
got it all warmed up this morning, so she is good to go!!! Wahoo!! About to take her out on a longer drive to really feel the heat! 😎

Thanks Andy!! 😎 We are so close to having it all done!! I’m so happy the heat works now!! Thank you for being my on-call advice line! 😁
Thanks Dad!!! 😊 Yes, I thought I could keep toughening it out, but I am very excited to have heat – and it works really well too!! Can’t wait to see you this weekend!!!
The radiator finally started to get warm on the third or fourth time trying last night, and just as it did I ran out of gas from having it running so much yesterday! Damn it! Got some gas late last night, now I’m gonna head back out there in a little while to add more water/coolant to the front to see if we can get this last bubble out and get her warmed all the way up!!

Couldn’t have done it without all the help!! FaceTimed my Dad this morning to find the location of the thermostat, Franz gave me some good tips on the phone, and Andy has been helping me via text all day!
Currently waiting a bit for things to cool back down so I can add more coolant/water back in… but Andy thinks I did it all right, so that’s good news!!! I am pretty proud I did it by myself and didn’t pay anyone.. now hopefully it worked!! 🤞🏻🤞🏻
Landon caught a pic of me while unscrewing those damn bolts… 😅

Thank you!! And No worries Andy, we are doing fine without heat! When the sun is out all those windows let plenty of warmth in 😎
thats a good idea to just call RMW… I might not be able to coordinate getting it up there before Christmas, but I’ll try to!
