The Wing window was a great invention.
I had replaced the AM with a AM/FM Cassette.
I had gone up a road that turned steep and rocky without anywhere to turn around until I reached the top. The downhill 5 mile ride was terrifying in my Old Ford and an 11' Slide in camper. When we rounded the last turn with a cliff and and came to a stop when I threw it into Park at 5 mph the front disc brakes (1st year they were used) were smoking and my wife and I were shaking.
Of Course with out the 390 V8 we would have been stuck on the uphill and been forced to attempt a backward downhill drive along a cliff with mirrors. My Truck has been known ever since as General Sherman.

Default dead battery

While in transit, your battery should get a charge from your TV. Check your TV fuses and make sure you don't have a blown fuse. I'm not an expert, just personal experience.
