Congrats...glad that's all it took. I've heard plenty of expensive horror stories.

So happy to live in the South...no smog tests. You can actually burn leaves in the yard...just like the fifties.

Big change for a former Northeasterner.

Got a "Battery Lift Strap" for these beefy GC2 Batteries...
$6.99 shipped free seems like a good idea having lifted them in and out of the car as ther is little to hold onto...
Need the weigh these suckers!

Not the greatest photo, and have since removed the lower shelf under where the sink was which had been leaked on for years. It had quite a bow and will have to compensate when cutting a new one. The wall paper on the back has also been removed since this photo was taken.
Elbundi, have you gotten a quote for the countertop yet? I just got a quote of about $700 for corian...that's for countertop only, I'm installing it myself. Just wondering what others are paying. Thanks.

Ouch... $700!

Ok, catching up with my backlog of Pics, now I found a Camera Cable!

My NIB Zemco DE700 Electronic Compass!
Paid $2.82 plus $6.00 shipping..



Northpoint Weather Station with wireless outside thermometer..
$1.25 plus $9.99 shipping..
I want a better one, and will displace this one to the bedroom when I find what I want...

Super bright White 12LED bulbs..
They were on sale, so I paid $7.96 with free shipping for 4 sets of 2, so 8 bulbs.




Put them in the Mapreading lights and under cabinet lights..
They fitted perfectly, and work GREAT.. pretty tight pool of focused light about 2' diameter on the drivers seat..

You guys are a bad influence Only done one led so far, the porch lite, but it's only a matter of time before everything else gets led'd. Truth is I'm skint till the end of the month, just as well.

Thanks keyair for the guide, great info.

Yup Andy, we can all blame Keyair for keeping us all on our toes when it comes to LED's. About to pull the rear lamp cans and bring them inside for a good cleaning and painting, following all of Keyairs 'instructions'. Of course, my LED's haven't arrived yet. They REALLY must be on the slow boat 'from' China. Almost a month now. Oh well, I'll be ready for them when they do arrive.
Thanks, Derek

Home depot said their minimum for a quartz install was $600. Haven't tried anywhere else yet but will ramp up the search when there's means to act.
Here's the template that'll be used.

Hopefully soon I can make a legitimate posting to 'What did you get for your motorhome today'
