Well, I manage a smog test & repair shop here in Calif. So...this guy comes in and fails his test, so we diagnose it for him. Turns out he needs about $600 worth of repairs. Well we get to talking and I discover he is unemployed & has no $$ to fix his car, BUT....he worked for 27 yrs at the largest (now closed down) RV dealer in the area.
We made a deal....I got his car fixed & smogged, and he is doing the minor repairs I need done on this beautiful 16 year old Bounder.
And I made a friend in the process !!
He installed the Camco Hybrid Heat electric convert kit ($73 internet) for me. And the correct, professional way, too. Circuit breaker, romex wire, etc.
I work all day, so now I can save even more $$ by turning on the electric water heater element when I go to bed, and then turn it off after my shower in the morning. (remeber, I am living in the MH).
I am going green.....by keeping it in my wallet !!
