How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We love it. The new HD radio stations are fantastic, it will play tunes from a cd, smartphone, MP3 player, Pandora and best of all from a USB. We loaded one stick with enough music to listen for a month without hearing the same one twice. The sound is excellent, especially now, with the matching speakers. lots of option to adjust the sound.

What was the last thing you bought for your RV ?

We had a Newave PIC (Precision Induction Cooktop), purchased in May 2014, we loved it. We went to use it last month, all we got was an error message no matter what buttons we pushed so I called Nuwave, the first question they asked me, before even my name, was where I got my cooktop. I told them, then they asked how old it was, again I told them. They told me my ONLY option was to buy a replacement. We went to Walmart with the intent to purchase a new one, the Nuwave PIC was $80 with a 1 year warranty, they also had a Farberware induction cooktop (with all the same specs) with a 2 year warranty for $40, we took the Farberware, even IF it fails the day after the warranty, we are only out $40, and will have had it for 2 years.

Two new small 1500 W heaters so I don't have to run the AquaHot on diesel during cold winter nights when stored beside the house. Our thermostat won't go below 45 which is higher then we need here and running one of the two electric elements isn't enough. I need 50 amp shore power to run both 2000W elements.

The diesel burner had stopped working. The coil had gone bad. No choice but to replace. Combustion chamber had a little over a one inch crack at the end of the chamber. Tech stated I could wait and have it welded. I chose to replace it and have the old one welded later for a spare.

Got a new toad.

Old toad was a 1993 Toyota Camry. Bought it 5 years ago with 250,000 miles on it for $1500. It went with us on a tow dolly. Threw a main bearing Saturday at 315,497 miles while cruising down the highway in Florida. Go figure, we "live" in Missouri. WE installed 3 timing belts and resealed the engine while we had it.
It was a great car and we will miss it Greatly.

New Toad:
2001 Jeep Wrangler TJ Sport
4.0L I6 w/ 5-Spd and AC
139,000 miles.
Burgundy / Tan / Brown Soft Top

Now to find a tow bar setup!!!!!
(will dolly it home w/ rear drive shaft out, when we head back)

Very nice. My toad is just like it except a 2004, fewer miles, blue and an automatic. Don't forget to add toad brakes. Jeeps are heavy and need tow brakes and its the law in many states.

Looking for a tow bar and brake system now. Had a line on a Blue Ox tow bar with surge brake system for $300, but it got way!

Using the with-us dolly to get it back to home base come March. Then will switch out to 4-down setup. Brakes are a must to 4-down, along with break-away system.
