Guy, seeing these recent posts of your parts give-a-way I'm wondering if you're not in the middle of a remodel

Just curious

Brad

Maybe he's just wanting to travel, and is allowing the parts to do the traveling for him...

Gotta admit, the gas mileage would be great using that method of traveling

Just saw this post. Actually I have collected these over a period of ownership. The bathroom vents I replaced because they were noisy. The main vent was replaced with Fantastic Vent because the old one didn't move enough air. The univolt was replaced by PD9180 which failed after a year and was replaced by a WFCO which is still working at this time.

The trim piece was provided when I bought the coach (one wheel well had no trim) but I didn't have the other piece so I had the the whole thing done on a stop at Jackson Center. (They can bend new pieces to order).

The vacuum was removed in the remodel during which we went form North-South twins to an East-West short king and created a bedroom suite. It was replaced with a dirt devil system installed under the new bed.

I had all of this stuff around and finally faced the fact that I was almost certainly never going to use it.

We've put 50,000 miles on it in the three years we've had it and decided that we needed to modify it to fit our needs rather than try to keep it 'original'.

My god is that ever true. I have a 68 Overlander in mint shape in storage and It's never seen the road since I've owned it. Our others see time but that Ole girl and a host of parts need to go. Too bad it's all 3000 miles away or it would be parted.

Wow, I could certainly learn something from you We hve SO many projects and so little time its a wonder anything gets done at all.

50,000 in three years is amazing. I wish we could do that but job and other commitments keeps us tied down.

Hi, Brad, Guy, and everybody -
I got news for you. If you have important things to do - things that matter - get them done right away and BEFORE you retire, because afterwards you simply won't have time to do them! Fect.
