Parts, cheapest place to buy, best service, Reveal your secrets

Today was a very good day, picked up and had shipped in a lot of parts cheap and thought I'd share.

Axis Products: Axis Products Main
Had my axles rebuild for less than $100.00, gave me a guesstimate of $600.00 for a two new axles with disc brakes.
Great service: Guy there spent an hour with me explaining torsion axles.
Read my other thread about it here:
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f437...ent-46697.html

Palomino Parts: 1047 E M86 - Colon, MI 49040 - 800 297 5830
Suburban NT22SP furnace and an Atwood G6A-8E-6 water heater for $508.80
Great service

Inland RV: These guys have everything
All the windows, doors, and vent seals, two tubes 3M adhisive all new running lights, Olympic rivets, nosing for complete interior, J trim. $275.00
Superb service:
They have not answered any of my emails, supose they could still be floating in nowhere land but phone calls are polite, informative and they don't mind spending time finding out what is you need and they call back when they say they will.
Needed info on vista view window spent a half hour on phone with someone in service that said I shouln't mess with them but then explained in detail how to take it out repair it and put it back in.

Troyer Products: troyerproducs@troyerproducts.com
$16.00 plus shipping for Lif-Table
They sell the Lif-Table hinge bracket kit for dinette table and custome build to your specs.
I told them how high the table is when down for sleeping and how high I wanted it when up and they bent the hinge for me to those specs and shipped it out

Bruce.

I usually only answer our e-mails.

That will unfortunately be limited, since I had a knee replaced last week, and I am, so to speak, bedridden, having rehab at home, and using oxygen, 24-7.

So, because of those things, It has been suggested, "to take it easy for a bit", or else.

Andy

Andy, here's another "or else" from the forum. You turn that puter off and get well, we need you out here!

Many thanks to "all', that have offered their best wishes.

Then to add a little more to the "what else", I got married to a fabulous RN right on the sands of Waikiki Beach, November 20th.

I will post a photo of us when I can get back to the office.

This quite well, may be the most joyous Christmas I have ever had.

Again, many thanks to all.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone.

Andy

Congrats Andy!!! Sounds like a worthwhile trip to the doctors office! Ha!

As for new knees ... I know the original poster said Inland RV had everything, but I must say knees did not come to mind!

That must have been one heck of a marriage proposal if it took out your knee! Congratulations on your happiness...

Hi Bruce,

Thanks for posting your "finds." If you continue to do so as you go through the process, that would likely be very helpful to many of the rest of us who are going through similar renovations. Good luck!

Andy,

Congratulations on the nuptials, and best wishes on the recovery from knee replacement. My wife is a physical therapist, and she says, "As soon as your doctor says it's okay to become active again, be sure to do your exercises and keep working that knee. You'll be back up and around in no time."

-Marcus

Actually, you should treat it like any other new suspension part. Regular exercize. Don't park it for long periods without taking some of the weight off. Keep your shoes and socks matched and balanced. Toe-in should be less than 1/8".

Any thoughts on shoe inflation pressures? What load rating shoes? Electric shoelaces or hydraulic? WD system?

Bruce, is the "Superb service" referring to a company or is it a reference to Inland RV? If its a company do they have a website?

Congratulations to the newlyweds! Andy and bride. Pray that you recover and get back on your feet quickly.

There are several things I am planning to do with the website, so it won't be "just an 'on-sale list' only" anymore.
