Not all bad being a certified Master Mechanic and a Jack of all Trades.
So what hours do you work and how do we make an appointment

LOL - didn't you get rid of 2 or 3 other trailers, too?

So it might be more fair to say "trailerless" ??
You are correct Michelle and prove to further make my point. After 3 different trailers from three different manufacturers and three different dealers I wasn't able to find anything in the industry that I was comfortable with. By that I mean something that I had faith in that it would last until it was paid for and have a dealer I could count on for timely and quality work. To me there's not much difference in the materials, technology, assembly and workforce pride in any of them. I know I'm cynical but I just don't want to have to deal with those kinds of frustrations at this stage of my life. :P

Oh, and I might add .... this was one of the most expensive lessons in my life

But just think of all the stuff I'm learning from you guys! You should all feel so good helping the less fortunate and ill-equipped!

I do believe I have found the answer to stopping that .5A heater draw...

Think of it as an adventure. Midwest to mid-south...can't be far.

The biggest impairment is the wife still works and probably wouldn't be happy if I took off on a jaunt myself!

Oh yes, she loves pizza too but doesn't have any vacation time until next fall and that is the rub. Two day weekends or 3 day weekends don't cut it for a 'distance' trip.
