Any tricks for removing rub rails?

Prepping my 712K for painting, actually Plastidiping. Started unscrewing my rub rails and about half of them are just spinning. What are some methods I should try to remove them?

Re: Headlights not working on Austrian 712K

Just to finish this off. I put everything back as it was since I was headed out on a three day run and wasn’t expecting to need headlights. When everything was back in place the headlights worked. Hi and low beam all good. Maybe something was loose and is now tight. Thanks for all the wisdom shared....

Re: Headlights not working on Austrian 712K

With the switch turned on I only get power to 81a and 15. I can’t hear the relay change with the switch on the steering wheel. Know of any source for the relay other than SAV? $82 seems like a lot for this especially if it turns out to be something else.

Thanks

Re: Headlights not working on Austrian 712K

#15 has power. Anything else I should check before tearing apart the dash?

Best way to get there? Remove the whole panel or try to just remove the switch?

Thanks,

Jake

Re: Headlights not working on Austrian 712K

You may have missed it in my last post, but #56 does not have power even with the switch on. Isn't that my problem? I can check the power to #15.

Thanks,

Jake

Re: Headlights not working on Austrian 712K

Turns out the relay is the second device with the black plastic bottom. I have power at #81a (red wire). I do not at #56 (White & Black wire) with lights switch on. I do get the running lights at both the first and second detents on the light switch. IMG_8268.jpg According to my wiring diagram, #56 ...

Re: Headlights not working on Austrian 712K

So on my truck it looks like this is a bit more difficult to access. Not sure what this cylinder in but not the relay you pointed out. E5F7DB6D-E397-41B3-81D3-84D1C3EE1FF6.jpeg There are two components behind the panel. I think this one is the relay. Would you agree? B4D47BB2-C898-4A82-A98E-BD0A5ADC...

Re: Headlights not working on Austrian 712K

Thanks Ron. Neither headlight works in low or hi. No power at the fuses for the headlights so I was going back to the light switch relay (#24 below). Can someone tell me what that looks like or where exactly I find it? Also, what is the "Multiple Switch for Turn Signal and Head Lamps" (#25 below). I...

Re: Headlights not working on Austrian 712K

Paul, Thanks. My initial tests looks like no power at one of the headlights in the H4 connector. Since the two headlights seem to have mostly separate wiring, I’m wondering if it could be in the light switch? Although that does turn on the running lights. Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks, Jake

Headlights not working on Austrian 712K

My headlamps, both low and hi beams are not working. The running lights that share a ground work, but no power to the headlamps. I checked the fuses (seems to be #11 and #12 on the wiring diagram) look fine. Can someone suggest best steps to running this down. Where should I start? What tends to be ...

Re: Suggestions for where to run wires to batteries.

Ron, The batteries will be located inside of the framework, which is why I’m trying to decide which way to go into the battery box. There will be a bank of two in parallel. I’ve already had them in place without the charger. This framework will be part of a expanding bed and will have the electrics ...

Suggestions for where to run wires to batteries.

I’m adding a 12v system into my 712K and needing to run cables from the batteries to my dc-to-dc charger. Should I drill a hole on the top, rear, or right side of this area to run the cables? DC1F132A-64BD-42E4-8E0A-91B02F486C01.jpeg There will be a framework around that area so the cables won’t be ...

Where can I purchase one of these?

I seem to have lost one of the screws that hold the aluminum foot plates down. Does anyone know what they’re called and/or where I can buy one?

Thanks
