May take a long time as my neighbors have been telling me for years I'm not normal.

Have only left the house once in two weeks & that was to the VA ER. I was too sick to stop & get groceries on the way home. Neighbors call & check on me daily. Told them not to come over just incase I'm still infectious.

Ask yesterday if I had eaten anything. Told her & had a bowl of cereal & probably a sandwich later with fresh bread. You can freeze milk for months. And I keep frozen bread dough also. All part of my emergency supplies. But will have to restock next time to the store. Nearest store is 30 mile round trip.

BTW, have some banana pudding chilling in the frig.

Glad everyone is feeling UP this morning. It is always great to start the day on a positive note. It is supposed to be cool and rainy here today. Have to stay inside but we need the moisture.

Will check into the thread at various times today. This thread and goooodmorning are addicting.

Good Evening, I got involved in picking up and assembling our new NordicTrack recumbent bicycle, we ordered it two weeks ago and it came in today. two hrs. later it is together and it works as advertised, alot of parts and pieces. Our old one was just not doing its job as well. HH, any more banana pudding left? Keep those E supplies stocked up. Gordon, every time my feet hit the floor in the morning is a good day . Its been very cold here last few days only got to 32* today and very windy, supposed to warm next week again, we can only hope. Have a great night all.

Sorry, banana pudding is all gone. But still have a box of vanilla. I like adding soft ripe bananas to the banana pudding.

I think I've been doing excess coughing today but hasn't been intense. But I've been breathing well.

bap, I had gotten that type A flu that has killed a few thousand people. Untreated can lead to pneumonia. Last Saturday I was so sick I thought I was going to die so Sunday morning forced myself into driving to the VA ER. Doing a lot better now but definitely not fully over it.

Hi guys and gals (Lynne)
HH, I am glad you are feeling better, Keep on the mend, and do not hurry the recovery! Keep taking the Amoxicillen till it is gone.
Terry, I hope your knee get's back to where you want it to be, and you can do what you want when you want!
Popeye, I think us RVers are all a little bit crazy, to spend as much money as we do for something that we contuinually have to fix! But I think we all enjoy doing that, and keeps us grounded!
Ty, my dealer, at Sunland sales, said it best,, He said that it does not matter how much you spend on a MH, it will always need something!
Here is a little experience from our trip!
When we came into S.D. on I-80, the MH just lost all power and died! I coasted to the shoulder and put on the flashers! It turned over , but no fire! So I called Progressive, and they sent a wrecker, he towed us to a very good shop, and we slept in their parking lot for the night. The next morning, I went in as soon as they got there, and talked with the service manager, he told me it would be tomorrow before he could work me in!
So I went out, called around, and had no luck finding someone to look at it. So, I pulled the hump off, and looked to see if I could spot something?
The wire off the coil was off? Put it back on, she fired right up! So now I am feeling really stupid, thinking why did I not check that on the side of the road, before calling and waiting for the wrecker! So I called the wrecker service back up and they said they could come right out and put the driveshaft back in for me! They showed up very fast, bought a new strap kit, and installed the drive shaft! Away we went! Got about 2 miles down the interstate, Bang, the same thing, no power! Pulled over, checked the coil wire, off again!!! So, I wire tie'd that sucker on this time, and looked around to make sure that I did not miss anything else? There, laying on top of the transmission, was one of the little vac. plugs, all ate up from age! So looking around, found where it came from, sure enough, open port! So I took off the line next to it, cut it off, cut me a little bit off extra line, plugged it, and put the two back on! Fired her up, wow, running great! Glad I had the towing on my insurance! Cost for the tow= 0$ Cost for the strap kit, 8$, Just felt very stupid about the whole thing! Do not know why the coil wire would not stay on? Must not have been the right one? I do think the MH was trying to tell me the vac. line was off? Maybe??? I do know it will not come off again, till the wire tie's are cut!! She purred the rest of the trip!
I had a great trip, and was very lucky!
Now I can start the hunt for the next MH, and plan the next trip! My Dealer ask when it would be, and he would look and see if he could find another really cared for MH, that was priced right, like the one I just had! We will see! I got lucky this time, maybe I can do it again! Rail!

I have a 520watt solar system on my storm shelter. Its a 20ft shipping container. Been in operation for three years & large enough to run a chest freezer & a few other things.

Last week I had ordered a 300watt "kit" which is suppose to be delivered today. But it will just be put inside the storm shelter for later use/build. Come the 1st I'm going to order another of the same kit. That will give me a separate 600watt system from the 520watt.
The kits come with a 20amp controller but will have to get a 35amp for the combined systems. And plan on four 29D batteries & will have to make an outside rack for them.
Big advantage of the two separate systems is I won't have to replace a bunch of batteries all at one time. The 520watt system has three 29D batteries.
