Solar System

Last week Precision Paint installed the X Bracing for our 03 TS Select....and now we are "next door" in Nappanee, IN having a solar system installed at Solar Energy Systems. If anyone out there is interested in solar and don't want to wait for the AM Solar backlog to clear, we recommend SES here in Napanee. Nine 130 W panels installed for our all electric coach.....today is new inverters, the charge controller and wiring it all up. Will write more when it is done and experimented with a bit.

It seems like I always get a bottle with that darn leak.

Just installed a new screen door latch and ordered 4 more LED lights. The new LED lights will replace the first four I ever bought (I've slowly replaced all of the bulbs that work with a simple on-off switch.) They were the most expensive, having been purchased 2.5 years ago, I've never liked the color (blue) and two of them have failed. All the others (some 20 plus) have worked flawlessly with a much more pleasing color. Those were all purchased from Super Bright LEDs.

Drag races? Wow! I would have never thought of racing my motor home! ;-)

We bought a case of ceramic tile to create a new backsplash for our kitchen counter. Got them on sale at Home Depot. DW says Winnebagos SS backsplash has to go!

Groceries! We're heading to Myrtle Beach, SC for Thanksgiving. The non-perishables and most of the clothes are loaded. I guess we'll winterize when we get back :(

Three new bolts to replace broken ones supporting the slide out. The 3 bolts were $46.50 and 6 1/2 hours labor to replace them, $$$$$!
