Thumbs up U Haul CT-13 Parts

Hello All and Thanks for the information and resources!

These past few months I have been restoring my Uhaul

I still would like to find for my 1985 U-Haul CT-13:

1. any components of an original upper front bunk assembly that includes the sofa seat back, the long hinge and the two support legs
2. a front window stone guard assembly (even one that needs repair or restoration) I may have to make one but would prefer an original
if possible...
3. an original thermostat that fits the Duotherm furnace

Thanks to all for this great forum!

The battery box cover would be fairly easy to make, but I don't think it is really necessary. We are also missing a couple of the storage compartment inserts, but find that there is more storage room without them. They were not installed in the early model Uhauls, but added later for ease of cleaning. You will have to fabricate a receiver for a bike rack as I had to. Keep in mind that the bumper is aluminum, and that bikes on a rack have a lot of leverage on the receiver and that they tend to bounce and flex things when mounted on the rear of a trailer. I have seen a couple rear mounted racks break off because they were not well made. Bob

Another thought about the battery box. I removed the screws holding ours down because they were mostly rusted away and installed new ones.You could just buy a new battery box and fabricate a vent hose fitting onto the cover. Walmart may have battery boxes, or an auto parts store, or boat accessory place.

Thumbs up Battery Box

Thanks Bob. I will look into that. I was hopeing to find an original cover
as the rest of mine is fine but replacing the whole box may be what I end up doing. I am presently installing a microwave and a little 2way frig. and
just completed redoing my water system with a new 12gal tank, water pump and 3way faucet . I also constructed an external water faucet so I can use the 12v pump to power an external shower (have a portable propane heated shower system) so no more sponge baths needed! I've pretty much been doing a complete refurbishing of this 'escape module' but have not been talking about it much. I appreciate your input about the other things as well!

Don, we are in the campground on Jekyll Island GA, next to us is a big 5th wheel camper. They recently installed a propane water heater on the rear bumper but can't get it to work. After calling tech support it turns out that the unit won't fire if the water pressure is below 20 psi.The owner is disappointed with that, and is afraid to bypass the pressure switch. We removed our water tank so eliminated any problems there. Bob

Thumbs up Bob, CindyL

I am bad about not taking pics, always regret it but will try to take a few soon. The Jekyll Island experience is wonderful and I wish I were there!
My water pump regulates to 5opsi and 2.9gpm so it should be adequate
to power the propane shower. I will test is as soon as I complete a new microwave/frig. installation. I really like the external faucet with hose
for fish cleaning, etc. My 'escape module' is a work in progress but coming along. Happy Trails!

Thumbs up Receivert hitch photos

Mike the table is working great and the converter is standing by as a backup, Many thanks for those!

Those are great pics. I can't tell by the picture but is it slightly off centerline due to the middle frame pipe that bolts to the mid section of the bumper? (at least that is the way my CT is) It would still work fine and surely be stronger than the aluminum bumper although I definitely won't be pulling anything with it.

Under construction with my CT-13
