I'm thinking about making a instant water heater I will build a prototype for my MH and if it works like I think it will then Ill make more of them. for the people like us that like long showers. it will still use your water heater but this will be more like a preheater. so in my mind it will allow more hot water faster. I'll start the build on the 3rd. wish me luck.

Bad news......well I've got to get up out of my chair and pour my own coffee.
Thank you lord for another great day and the means to deal with any problem.

Sena is fine. She was frightened by the storm, but got over it as soon as the hail quit. She even ventured out when she saw so many people on roofs. That's usually her turf. Now if she would just learn skylight repair, I could rent her out for big bucks!

Forgive me if this is a repeat -- memory ain't what she used to be.

Another reason to have a Smart Car as your toad -- all of the body panels are made of a flexible plastic. Smarty is probably the only car here that didn't get any hail damage. She was facing away from the blowing hail and thus her windshield did not get damaged either.

Looking up the price for parts on the internet it looks like my wallet took a $250 hit, but it's the 20 hours of work and 50 trips up and down the RV ladder that is really gonna hurt.
