Howdy and Thanks
Thanks for the welcome and the advice.
So far we have re-plumbed with Pex, repaired rotten spots in that horrible chipboard they used for sub-flooring, repaired the furnace, put vinyl tile in the bath, replaced the carpet with cherry (fake) laminate flooring, re-built one end of the convertible sofa and made some cabinet mods and repairs. It goes without saying that the whole thing has been Clorox'd. It also goes without saying that a tour to D.C. for the spring has been postponed.
I think that this AS was made on a Monday or Friday (based on workmanship). I have a some very good friends from Ohio who migrated this way early in their lifetime. Are you an OSU (not Oklahoma State) fan?
Based on some of the RV replacement part prices, I may start fabbing, ESP vacuum-formed and cast pieces. They look like prices on yacht parts!!
BTW, the guys at Zipadee (awnings) and Alsons (vacuum breaker) are super.
