U-Haul CT13, need parts and help

Hello all!
I am new to this site but have been reading posts for a while now. I just purchased a 1984 U-Haul 13. It is in need of work but is in good condition. I would like to bring this unit back to original. Currently, the bunk bed wood board and support posts are missing. I do have the main hinge and cushion. I am also missing one of the small corner cushions that is placed on the lower bunk. If anyone out there has these items, please let me know!

Additionally, there are endless posts regarding window parts, whether it be gaskets, seals, channel felt, etc. I'd like to restore my windows. Does anyone have a list of all part numbers of items required and where to purchase? I really need the window channel felt and the rubber seal that fits in the outer track that prevents dirt from entering the outer channel.

Lastly, my furnace is inoperative. I thought it was the thermostat. It was the original "Duo-Therm". I removed it and it was brittle from age so I am replacing it. There was no power to the thermostat so I ruled that out. I contacted the two wires together and nothing came to life. There is power to the furnace but that's as far as I can chase it while still tucked in to that tight area. Does anyone have a clue where to go from here? Is there a place that refurbishes furnaces that mine can be sent to?

That's all for now. Ant assistance would be appreciated

Thanks!

Hi, Denis, welcome to fgrv! You will find a huge base of knowledge here as well as many friendly fg egg owners. There are rallies galore to attend, too!
Many UH owers have 'dual citizenship' here on this site as well as the UHaul specific facebook site which has lists and parts specs and all sorts of other coolio things in one place. Check it out. https://www.facebook.com/groups/UHaulCamper/

Denis,
I hope this link works... I believe it's a fairly involved description of someone on this site rebuilding their furnace.

repairing Uhaul furnace

[It's been quite a while since I looked it over.]

We took ours out, resulting in much more storage space. No it's not for sale. Or repair yours with some fiberglass resin and cloth

I'm looking to find a simple...user friendly " owner's guide/handbook " for the CT13. The one I downloaded from this site is quite technical...and more of a " repair " manual.

Is there anything that addresses the basic "systems " ( furnace, electrical, fridge and H2O) that is simple and "straight forward "......not about technical repairs by UHaul ?

Thanks! Rickeelee

Rick; in the document center you can find the Users Guide, the Repair Manual, and the Parts Manual. The Users Guide probably does not have all the information you want as Uhaul used instructional decals all over the trailer, most of which are probably gone now.

Check the document center or Google for the make and model of the individual appliance. Refrigerator and furnace instructions should be available. The appliances and electrical may have been changed by a previous owner.

Furnace instructions may be on the inside of the cover. It is an electronic ignition furnace, no pilot light that has to be manually lit. Fan will run a bit before furnace ignition. Operates on 12 volts. Water system is a basic hand pump. Stove burners are manually lit with a match. Originally there was an ice box, and some had a roof top swamp cooler that had a pump and water tank in the right front storage compartment.

I used to have a U-Haul, but I am currently restoring a Burro. I can't remember if the window frames & construction are the same or not? If you look under the Baja Burrito Resto Mod posts under Burro, I have a detailed parts list for a window rebuild and pictures. Not sure if this will help or not. Good luck.

Bunk Bed details

If you have the hinge, the bunk is a pretty straightforward project. It is just a piece of plywood with two hinged pieces on the ends that will allow you to fold it past the cabinet and conform to the curve when laid down. It's just held up by some folding table legs you can get on the Amazon.
I took mine out but have it still. A pattern for you could be arranged.
Michael
