Got a new thermostat for the furnace. The original shorted out and wouldn't shut off. It ran the batteries to near zero. I had to pull the fuse to make it stop.

Found a new Suburban brand thermostat on eBay for only $13 delivered!

Got a problem with the 89 PA once in a while the breaker on the S&B that she is plugged into will blow? Nothing is on in the MH, actually thinking about it, it has happened @ my brothers and @ the father-in-laws place.
On occasion the breaker in the MH's panel will trip but not blow the S&B's Breaker.
I have been in her with a space heater ,Furnace tv, a small fan, all running and nothing blows?
I have a battery disconnect that I use when not in her.
Baffled,
Tim

Drove it to the Louisville RV Show, stopped on the way home to get an estimate on replacing the Dash AC system... about $1300.00.
Gonna check a few other places, but looks like a DYI thing... a little over 300.00 in parts, The repair place was going to charge me double that for parts alone, and 700 labor.

I remember going to a Parts Store I trusted, he was a bit of a doodaa and asked him for a good A/C shop to fix my SO 1990 Dakota Pickup Convertible that she had bought new. He sent me across the street , the guy looked at it, no gauges or anything and said "you need a new compressor and a charge for $850 +tax. I told him i'd get back to him, went home and nosed it up to my identical pickup opened both hoods put the A/C on both and looked at them. My fan was going , hers was not, swapped them and her A/C was miraculously fixed, bought a $45 fan clutch for my truck and brought the old one back to the place, it was called TUNE TIME , I told them they would never see me again , but they can be sure I'd tell everyone I knew about them! They were out of business the following year, I'm sure it wasn't just me, must have been Karma! Bob

Don't be A Dummy! Like Me!

Went out to jack my 88 Cheiftain 22 up to do Shocks, Stabilizers and start to pull the radiator. My driveway is just 2 strips of concrete with grass in between. Got it jacked up ok, set jackstands on frame, took front wheels off and was just about to put another set of jackstands under the hubs when she decided to move to the right falling on her belly, not doing that anymore! Got her back up and on better footing now, maybe I can get something done! Glad I wasn't under her! I wanna go somewhere warm! Bob

Turns out the original didn't short, I just didn't know how to turn it off. (what a dummy)

But I put the new one on anyway just to get an updated look. Since it was the same brand even the screw holes lined up perfectly so I didn't even have to drill any new holes in the wall.

I also got the old stuck-open roof vent working again after some penetrating oil, WD40 and then some grease. So now we can close that vent and not freeze on cold nights.

I like working on RVs. It's fun.

You want to put a square of plywood or 2 x6 s under your jackstand legs to keep them from sinking thru the surface. Safety first. Good luck

Today I found out I need upper and lower balljoints, inner and outer tie rod ends, a draglink, and one bellcrank.

I went to the alignment shop (45 miles away) with a new SS bellcrank in hand...assuming ( IE..ASS/ U / ME ) thats all i needed!

The bonus to the news of needing whole front end rebuild......My steering column switch for the autopark decided to act up while the tech was attempting to pull out of the bay. First Autopark issue i have ever had...(special thanks to Roger and all who have had these problems ahead of me...and who posted about them!)

A quick yank of the clevis pin and I was on my way back home.

20 minutes on Rockauto.com and 400 bucks later...parts are enroute.

As for the AP switch...it just popped out of adjustment....so I will tackle that while rebuilding the frontend.

The fun never stops!


OH yeah....extra bonus...I need a cooling unit for the fridge...

My fun meter is pegged!
