Purchased 2 DVD players, $78 and used a TV set and Direct TV receiver from our house. Have paid between $500-$600 for people to help me out. It has been one heck of an expensive month. Hope the Ole girl pays off in the long run with lots of happy days in the future.
Congratulations, glad to see your spending like the rest of us.

We bought new sewer hoses or as my husband calls them poop (cleaned up version) hoses.
A really neat cover for the couch so Faith Doggy doesn't get a lot fur on it. It isn't made for an rv sofa but it works fine. Between the dog and cat I gather enough fur to knit another pet.

I Put in a Fantastic Fan this weekend, variable speed and self opening. The controller didn't work at first, but a call to the factory got me going. The controller needed binding to the fan, then i had to turn the output up to get a decent range. It blows a bunch of air! I think we will do the bathroom too.

I put one in our bathroom and was very impressed at the amount of air it moves. So I added another in the vent above our bed.

A new fuel pump for the Onan generator. I suspect the next thing will be a new carburator!

A brand new refrigerator, the original one leaked out all of the refrigerant - which we discovered the day before leaving on our vacation..

Happily CW had one in stock and replaced the old one, we were out and on the road in 4 hours. No appointment necessary.

Hats off to our CW!

Qwik value for the oil drain plug on the V10 Ford. Has hose nipple on it so I can drain oil right into a jug. The drain plug on the F53 chassis is right over the steer axle and is hard to drain without making a mess. I did balance the drain pan on the axle and tie rod last month and didn't spill a drop, but not easy and then you have to finagle the pan out without dumping. I won't need to change again till next winter, but I will have the new value when I need it. No tools needed now to drain my oil as you just slide the locking tab and drain. Heard about this right here on irv2 from Doggy Daddy, another member in another post.total cost for value, hose and shipping-$35

Valve Crude. Valve. Value is what you put on Dunner's opinions.
