Being an electrician I'm a firm bemiever in start easy and cheap and work your way up. I watched 2 guys troubleshoot a light for a little over an hour a few years back before the young apprentice (me) suggested it might be a light bulb. 👍😉😉

iamblum,
Yes that does happen to the best of us, that is why we try to help each other with the troubleshooting, because sometimes the little things slip through the cracks and they usually bite you big time.
TexasRVlivin,
Don't just lurk, join in and have fun with the rest of us, we are glad to have you.
Frank

I do from time to time Frank. Unfortunately I don't have the knowledge or know how that yall do, so most of the time I sit back and learn.

Good Morning, Texas, You can send all the warm weather we'll take it, Lets see you can send the rain to Gordon, it sounds like he needs it, you guys down there sure have had your share. iamblum, I had some young techs that worked for me in the auto shop and I always had to remind them of the basics, they almost always wanted to dive in. Frank, you guys on the forum always have the best advise we all have varying experiences and skills and can contribute something.

Terry,
I agree on the advise, I always told my apprentices that everyone has different experiences and that if they think they have a better way of doing something to bring it up and we will discuss it and analyze why it is better or not. We had a lot of good discussions and we all learned a lot from each other that way.
TexasRVlivin,
You may not have the experience on some things, but that doesn't mean that you might see something or think of something that we have overlooked, even if you just ask a question, one of us would be happy to explain.
Frank

Reminds me of the old story of a semi getting stuck under the overpass. 3 engineers show up and begin to discuss the best way to get the truck out. 1 suggests dismantling the truck piece by piece. The next talks about undermining the road to lower the truck and ramp it out. The third wants to semi part of the bridge. Just then a littl boy walks up and says " why don't you let the air out of the tires". Just because you don't have detailed knowledge does not mean you don't have the answers😎

Hello All,

OK you new guys, I am a female and have been following this thread from pretty much the start. I also do NOT have the knowledge of these guys but find the info interesting anyway.

Once in a while I comment or ask a question or make a suggestion. You just never know. One of the things I have learned though is that these guys have very varied knowledge and they have helped Terry figure out several things. They live vicariously through Terry's work.

You have to admire what he has accomplished and his wife's design and her work. They have one great TH and the new truck is going to be a beauty too. Some day I hope to actually be able to see his work up close.

Texas, I agree with Terry, Gordon needs rain and we need some warmer weather. It's not been a bad winter in MI but enough is enough already and Terry needs warm weather so he can kick in gear and get her done.

I think you will enjoy this thread because the comaraderee is amazing. We have become friends and some of us have actually met. These guys have helped me a great deal with our rig purchase and some answers to my questions.

Still looking good Terry. Lynne

Lynne,
I couldn't agree more. I read the entire thread before I made my first comment. The friendships formed are amazing. I will see if I can send some rain to Gordon. It looks like we are getting more rain tonight. I just hope it isnt accompanied by the hail and 65mph winds we got the other night.

Terry, when you install your shower surround, will you be putting a vapor barrier between the surround and your insulation?

I hope Terry and Eleanor had a great trip to meet Frank and Rita. Hope Tot'r ran better than expected.

Still no rain here. Thanks to everyone who offered to share some with us. Still harassing the crows. They abandoned the first nest and started a second. I think they are giving up on the second location as well. Was going to knock the nest down today but the wind is blowing like crazy and the temps are pretty cool. Decided to stay in and continue setting up the computer.

Good Afternoon, Well we are sitting next to Mona and have been visiting with Rail and Jira. Currently 59* so not too bad. Great time. The Tot'r ran flawlessly on the way up. Averaged 65 MPH and still had some pedal left . Sooo just a little more HP, (you can never have enough HP) and we'll be happy. Lynne, thanks so much. Texas, Hope you don't get any severe weather. Right now my walls in the tub area are luan, the one wall at the foot of the tub is an outside wall, the rest are inside. but to answer your question yes we are putting a vapor barrier between the surround and the walls.
