Thanks Les !! I'll give BCS a call but, I think they are now located in Vancouver, WA

I don't know how interchangeable Aqua Hot systems are with Hurricane, but its worth a shot.

Cheers !!!

P.S. thankfully this is not an urgent problem.

I tried that level, it's just called the South Beached Diet.... It is great while you eating it, but than the only thing you can do is lay down like a beached whale... (When I was done, I resembled that remark too)....

I tried the South Beach Diet about 10 years ago, even read the book. Loved it. Very smart doctor.
Then I ate bacon and walked several miles a day.

Oh.... I knew I was forgetting something.... Regardless, the bacon was good... And since I had to eat bacon, I just went ahead and use a few garnishes, like a couple of eggs, hashbrowns, a few biscuits with butter and jam, coffee with heavy whipping cream, and a stack of pancakes... But I ate it all slowly so I could savor my food as I ate it... You know, that helps...

That should should be good for another $1000 with the oil change.
Les,

You and Mel are reassuring me that a small class C is the best choice for us. There is no way I could afford the maintanence or repair costs of a DP. My annual budget for our home is only $1000. Michelin helped by recalling the tires last year. I have another 4-6 years before they should need replacing.

Our rainbow rider may be small, but it works for us. Y'all have my sympathy.

Barb, I'm about to decide we may want to get a 30' or 31' Class C one of these days ... before we have to sink another $9,000 into Bow. Sheesh. I don't know how many more hits to the savings account we can take. After retirement, the bank account (monthly income) will be considerably smaller. Maybe we'll give it a year on the road, then re-evaluate. I really had NO idea how expensive it is to repair and maintain a DP!
