Damn, what a day! Finally got to fire our Winnie up with all the work I did on her Ran fine no leaks from the P/S or the radiator! Shut it down and found a huge puddle of motor oil on the ground! Now What????????????? When I took the condensor/oil cooler out the adel clamp holding the oil cooler line to the condensor was rotted away, and I bent the line some. Didn't think it was a big deal bending it back, BUT, it was! Took it back off and brought it to the radiator shop to get it fixed, we will see what the damage$$$ is tommorrow. On the way back my neighbor called and said there was water pouring down my driveway and icing up in the street. House next door was in forclosure for the last 5 years, bank doesn't want it so the previous owner rented it out to some jerk on a phony disability. He had all kinds of charities paying his bills, but I guess he just used the heat money for something else! The pipes froze and broke all over the house. I managed to get in but couldn't get to the water meter, the place looks worse then that show on TV Hoarders buried alive. Called the fire dept as he left all the lights on that Catholic Charities was paying for, didn't want his house burning down next to my Driveway/Motorhome before I get to use it! Now I have to look forward to laying on about 2" of solid ice to get anything done! Oh well , looks like i'll have to buy alot of Kerosene to feed the big bullet heater to melt it or freeze my butt off! Oh yeah and some how my SO ended up with a pile of nails and a hole in the sidewall of her 2013 escape, another $247 we didn't need to spend! I've had enough, i'm going to sleep and Dream of a better tommorrow. Bobby

What a bummer to say the least. A few years ago the neighbors were on vacation and one day the mailman walked by and there was water running out under the front door. Ins paid but what a mess to come home too.
Furnace took a dump.
Hope you have a better tomorrow,
Tim

Fire Dept came and shut off the water and cut the electric on the house next door. Then the building dept sent someone to board up the house. Wish they would condemn the nasty thing, then auction it. It is only on 30 by 100 so you couldn't build a house on it again, but it would make an excellent place for a nice shop and place to park our Winnie and maybe my neighbor down the blocks Adventurer. I'm sure he'd rather pay me to park it on the block rather then travel 40 miles everytime he goes out to his MH, LOL! Bobby

dogpatch I will check...Radio Shack has a nice setup available. They have LED strips that will run off of a battery pack or from a plug in transformer. When I get to the motorhome today, I will get the model # info for you

Have you looked into this site?
https://www.superbrightleds.com/
I was originally going to use these and mount them under the MH along the bottom curve, between the front and rear wheels. 10 led's per unit
4" x 2" LED Amber Clearance Light - M4 Products
Then I found these and I like the idea and they are capable of being chaser lites
https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...ply/2083/4879/
The the neighbor came over this morning and told me about using single Leds w/3 lights and drill and mount in the same area.
There is just to many options. If you want too check out the video that shows what a guy can do with there lights

Got the 12v DC plug from Amazon for my insignia 28" tv with the wall wart plug..
Now runs off the 12v plug. No generator, or inverter needed.
Works fine

dogpatch this is an install of the battery powered LED lighting. I don't know if you can make it out, but this is over the driver's door.

Ok, Oil cooler back in , NO Leaks, yea! Today she get the new master cylinder and I get to figure out what vacumn lines to keep, runs great , but found the vacumn advance on the distibutor diaphagm is blown, ordered a new adjustable one. SO getting itchy to get out of here, me too! Want to get some enjoyment out of her soon, although I do enjoy working on her! Have fun. Bobby
