Found a few bonuses in the bottom compartment of the sleeper door that wouldn't open.

Noticed a small amount of mouse nest while vacuuming under the cab's passenger rear interior panel. Had to see how far the rabbit hole went. Just vacuumed for now, they're tunneled behind all the interior panels in the foam far as I can tell. Spring it'll get gutted and dynamatted etc. For now a vacuum will do. Nothing on earth I hate more than mice, they're even worse than Prius drivers.

What a weekend. The rabbit hole went pretty deep as it turns out.... or should I say mouse hole. Ended up completely gutting the interior of the truck. They tunneled through all the foam everywhere.

Wasn't going to do the sleeper originally but glad I did. Pulled the headliner down and out fell this mess onto the cab floor:

Picture does it no justice it was like 5" deep. A dead mouse also fell out, I hope he died a very slow and agonizing death.


Once we were all vacuumed out I spent lots of time fabreezing and cleaning the foam etc. fabreezed and cleaned the back of all the interior panels also. Then while I had wiring exposed I decided to chase the things that didn't work in the truck. Nothing in the sleeper worked so I started by chasing the lighting circuit and found I had no power. Found a broken wire in the harness where it comes in to the sleeper from the cab. Bingo lights work!! Figured out the heating controls back there too and now all that works. Next I decided to figure out why all but one of my clearance lights didn't work. UGH.

UGH that'll do it. Gotta order clearance lights. Also the headlights didn't work at all, one click of the high beam switch on the floor and bingo we've got headlights. Needs a switch, I have no high beams no big deal. I chased some wiring in the dash and got all the gauge backlights working too. I need to buy the infrared switch label illumination from peterbilt as that doesn't work real well. Once I was done chasing electrics and now that the interior had a day to air out I decided to re-assemble and clean the interior. Here's a good before and after shot of the cleaned up interior. Sleeper door is before, panel next to it is after.

What that is is a remote tower it bolts in place of the stick tower and extends towards the rear of the trans to put the stick in the correct spot in the floor of the cab, as the driptroits are shorter than a Cummins or Cat this was a necessary evil, those extensions came in different lengths but all the service parts are the same, I believe it was a Petrerbilt part not a fuller part.
 The parts page you posted doesn't have the parts for this.
