    Fusion Stereo in Challenger 1800, antenna help

    I had to open up the existing holes. The originals were approximately 6" and the new ones were 8". Speakers came with a template, made copies of it, taped it to the side, and followed the edge with a skill-saw.

    Trailer tire getting hot!

    Hello, Bad and/or poorly lubricated wheel bearings can also cause heat build up. If is from poor lubrication you may want to consider replacing them anyways.

    registering trailer in PA with no title

    Hello, In Massachusetts I had the same issue registering my trailer and ended up having it written up as a home made trailer as well. What not as painful, registry officer told me that I needed to purchase a new trailer, and if I ever upgrade I can keep the plate!

    Challenger 1800, Hydro-Turf 2-Tone Wide Groove Installed

    Just finished installing Hydro-Turf's 2-tone wide groove mats and thought that someone might be interested in seeing how it came out. Was very reluctant because I did not want black or a color that would not match the interior and eventually fade. This looks real nice and give the impression of...

    Challenger 2000 - 2nd Battery Location?

    Hello, I have (2) Optima Blue top batteries and I mounted them next to each and did not put any additional holes in my hull. What I did is make an aluminum plate large enough to hold (2) battery bases on it, adjusted it for the best fit in the area, and then transferred the the location points...

    Challenger 2000. Looking at Installing a GPS with transducer, where can I tap +12v for power?

    Yes. The spade looking connectors are what I was referring to. The relation of the fuses to the open spade connectors is close but your best way to confirm would be with a voltage meter or a power probe, test before, put in a fuse, and then verify power. Everything on the dash has a ground...

    Challenger 2000. Looking at Installing a GPS with transducer, where can I tap +12v for power?

    Hello, In the main fuse block between the 2 rows of fuses are clips that you get power from. These are powered by the areas that the fuse blocks are blank. I have a 1800 challenger and mine had open ports. Using a voltage meter test for a dead plug, put the recommended fuse in one of the spare...

    Anyone replace challenger 2000 decals or know of good replacements

    If you are looking for OEM decals good luck. I also have a 2000 and have been looking for a while. Occasionally they turn up on eBay because someone has acquired some old stock. I was able to find the OEM bow and boat cover for mine by being patient and vigilant. Need to keep looking and...

    Unknown Cable

    Hello, Can someone tell me what this cable is for. It is located behind the dash board. When you turn the ignition on the relay energizes, nothing is connected to it and there is nothing that seems to need to be. Was going to unplug it at the harness but want to make sure first. Thanks
