What kind of bolts, they must have had military specs to cost that much, maybe I was in the wrong business.

We just bought, on eBay, a 42,000 BTU heater to replace the 25,000 one that bit the dust. I should get it in the next week or so. I fired it up yesterday and it works like it should, sure made me feel good. It takes a lot of planning and thinkin' for any project now that we are retired. If I finish it too fast then I just have another project on the "honey do" list to do. We will have 67,000 BTU's, now if we can just afford the propane.

Got a new waterpump, Flojet Sensor VSD 4.5gpm. Had a Shurflo 5.7gpm ...really liked the output, but after replacing it 5 times in 7 years just got tired of changing it out when it started leaking, wouldn't start, wouldn't stop, etc. Each time was a warranty replacement, and the last was still in the warranty period when it failed a year ago but I just put in the 2.8gpm spare and gave up on the 5.7. Saw a CW sale on the Flojet, so decided to try it. When the package came and DW asked what it was, and I told her "new water pump", she asked rather harshly, "Did you get a different brand this time?" Yep, she gets a bit upset when her shower or dish washing gets put on hold while I go out in the dark to change the water pump. Hopefully that won't happen as often now ...for sure the Flojet is quieter.

I had our roof resealed at Camping World a couple of weeks ago.
I have a list a long as your arm as to what we up graded to sťance we up graded to a new M.H. back in 1997.
Things do not last for ever.
Just a thought.
