The ball joints are a known problem with that series of Spartan chassis. The BJ supplier used a bad design of rubber seals, and they all fail. If you catch it in time, the seals can be replaced, otherwise, weather and road grit eat them up. We'll see.


We (read Jan) really like the 2100XC vented unit. Don't know anything about a filter, so we're just crossing our fingers.


Hi Annie!


Tom
Thanks Tom... I suppose we will grow the nest egg for something else then!! Lol.

Can't wait for the new washer / dryer. It's been heck having to use laundry mats and having laundry build up. Never again. And if there's another coach in our future, stackable is a must have. The w/d will never be on our list of don't have and don't miss.

Well its 11:00 am and we have done nothing... except drink a little coffee... need to shower and see if Don and the Toy Duck Legal Division are accepting visitors today... looking forward to meeting that mutant!!

only 89 here in Paola, but due to humidity, it feels like 104.
This morning there was haze and it absolutely felt wet out but the sun was shining down hard... tomatoes and peppers are gonna love it. Me, eh, not so much.

Steve and Mary Ann, you have our full and complete sympathy.
