Replacing engine water pump & hoses while the rad is out ( particularly if you have no record of the change ) is a good idea , adds very little to the bill.
Bridgestone tires have a good reputation in automotive applications , not sure about M/H.

Hope your ship is getting closer .
Safe travels

Wish List

Hi Spritz,

Have you considered Hercules Tires? 6 tires for my 35' Vectra mounted and balanced were less than $1500. I have had them 1 year and they seem to do well. The repair shop I utilize says good experience with them (and he does not sell them). I have the Hercules S209 19.5 in tires.
