Wish we could just get our health care to actually work. Have torn rotators and have been on a waiting list just to get to see the specialist for over a year. Friday they will again attempt to do the cortisone shots thing to make the pain go away for a while.

Well now, I heard people say that socialized medicine is great. What gives? Isn't CA on that particular plan?

Uh, Wayne, if you let him operate on you very many more times, there won't be any of you left. You know he won't stop until you look like Frankenstein's monster. (In a tutu, of course, you wouldn't be so scary.)

Sandee's surgery turned out to be fairly minimal. They cleaned out some slightly worn cartilage and smoothed out a couple slightly arthritic bone surfaces. No rips or tears required repairing.

I got Earlene's FB message on the PF and will pass that on to Sandee. It could mean more surgery for her.

Yep. Cold travels down and heat rises. I don't understand why they got the idea to put cold AC in basements. Makes more sense to me that heat is in the basement and cold air ducted from up top. I'll ask my nephew. He's an engineer.

Ours is called Medicare. But I think it works better than what Dennis has "up North."

Hi Ginny!

We will be spending two nights in Pueblo and 3 in Gunnison on our way to Vegas. We'll give a mutant yell when we're nearby. Assuming I'm right in your journey direction.

Sorry for getting back so late. The wifi has been out and phone service in and out. I'm in Gunnison. Give me a yell when you come through.

Thanks, guys. My sis called to say they ditched the Itasca and bought a new Tiffin Allegro. Another of those "we went to buy that one and ended up with this one" stories.

That was my thinking, too. I believe Winnebago has moved away from the basement air, though.

And in the "was my face red" department... on our last trip I couldn't figure out why the air conditioner wasn't cooling very well. I guess having the fantastic fan on full speed right next to the a/c vent wasn't such a great idea. (Except for the squirrels on the roof.)

Glad everything went well. Prayers sent for fast recovery.

Yes, the shoulder thing has been long time in the making. Next is the probability she will be in some kind of waking boot for her planter fasciitis. That is also a long running problem.
Glad she is home.

The good ones are split systems. Condenser is "down under" somewhere and the evaporator is usually situated up high on a cabinet, wall, or cupboard face. Preferably the condensers are positioned near a good outside air source like in the front of the rig.

However the all-in-one basement units DO operate like a house forced air design. Like you said the cold air has to be moved upstairs, and this takes up cabinet and wall space to hide the air ducts. I hope no systems are designed with cold air registers in the floor as would be heating registers.

My three basement A/Cs take up the space where the spare tire would have been located behind the front drop-down bumper. Far quieter than having three roof airs. We run only the center A/C for most warm days. All three would make the interior like a freeze locker.

Not rocket science here. I have no problem removing, replacing, or fixin' the workings of a basement A/C. Now if the work would require going up and down a ladder for a roof A/C fix, I'd consider hiring the job out. Another downside (or potential) of a roof A/C is water leaking in. My parents had two flat roof class A RVs many years ago that both suffered from water damage around the roof mounted A/Cs. The roof design was weak, which allowed the weight of the units to sag the center of the roof, making a shallow lake. In those days RV dealers didn't fix anything, but would offer to take it in on trade for a "better" model.

As usual, I get verbose like this when a keyboard is nearby, and I have a few spare minutes. Sorry folks! I'm way up here in the boondocks where getting a good connection is spotty.

Well it is off to do something productive, like kayaking or biking.
