huntnski, I always realized I was different somehow, but never realized I might be an RV Mutant! Thanks for the welcome. And okmunky, you make a sobering case for everyone to make sure they are hooked up properly and towing safely.

Oh no... maybe you can find a tranny in a parts car somewhere (wrecking yard)...
Shouldn't cost that much.

So what happened to this one? Thought they were pretty bullet proof.

So we start talking and Sena comes out to see what she might be missing.

So, picture this... I have a bag of toad trash in one hand, a naked monkey on my shoulder and I lean into the toad to grab a clean diaper off the dash. Sena then makes a mad dash for the screen door's open plastic slider with me cussing and chasing after her.

Surprisingly he's still standing where I left him in order to chase Sena. So I ask him if he knows about IRV2 and proceeded to inform him about the website and the RVM thread. I figure anyone that doesn't quickly leave when I turn to chase Sena, must be mutant material. I wrote down all the info he'd need to find us.

So why Chrome Pimp? He uses his RV for business. He sells all the shiny stuff that truckers like to put on their trucks and the products to keep them shiny.
Thanks, I can just picture this... PRICELESS..

Oh and Steve how it happened was I tried to help my brother he said a guy needed a few yard art pieces taken out of his 4 mil. Dollar home but he couldn't get to it so could I run over with his trailer and pic them up. You know me shore I'll do that for you 32 statues latter well she couldn't do it but I gave my word so I did move all but 5 and the trailer lost the wheel bearings also. It was not a great day. So I'm up on the old inter Web trying to find the tranny. It's all good though I woke up this morning and I'm above ground.

We are getting it repaired at Mt. Comfort RV just 5miles or so east of Indianapolis. That is where we purchased our MH in 2010.

Their new service manager has 25 years of experience in RV repair and seems to be very accustomed to "jumping thru the insurance hoops" for estimates and supplemental estimates (if hidden damage is found).

They have always treated us well. The ONLY negative is not having enough people so when they have several new sold units to prep, they sometimes schedule you behind those units. Nothing out of line but frustrating just the same.

Say 81, tell us a little about yourself, what do we call you only one person I know that goes by a number and she was a looker. At 81 you missed Agent 99 "by that much"!
