Slightly off topic: As someone who makes a living in the HVAC field, I would expect that at least you have some savings on your bill to look forward to this summer. Your heat -of- summer electrical will likely be ⅓ to ˝ what it was with a old (probably 8 or 10 SEER) unit. I recommend to get a programmable thermostat and use it also.

I understand. My Airstream garage turned into a new condenser and evaporator last spring- and then a roof, and then a washer/dryer, then a bunch of medical expenses, then a new car- I give up!

No doubt, both the present units are OLD contractor grade PIGS!! Up here, the consensus is, put money into a furnace and not so much in A/C. Single stage 14.5 seer, but furnace will be 2 stage variable speed 97% efficient ("up to" on those) with an evaporator that will get the energy company rebates and tax credit. I use a Nest 2.0 already and it is compatible with the chosen units.

Stained glass project completed

Completed the new stained glass inserts for the vista view windows and installed them today. We removed the old geometric designs we made last year and replaced them with this reef scene. The fourth window, on the curb side by the front door, has a lone turtle. The skylight insert is from the original set we made but blends with the new set so we left it as is. The recent lousy weather actually helped. We were stuck inside enough to give me time to finish them before we get back on the road in 2 weeks.

Looking for Flamingos?

Just discovered that our Ace Hardware has the Don Featherstone flamingo two-pack. About the same price as the AS store and no shipping.

The Featherstone flamingos are generally about $20.

In preparation for our 3 week summer trip that has us boon docking most of the time (plus many other shorter trips) I got the following:

1. Brand new Yamaha EF2000is generator for a song on Ebay. Best deal. If you are looking for one let me know and I will send you the link of the seller. First rate and awesome price.

2. AQUATANK 2 Water Storage Bladder (30 Gallon)

3. I am seriously considering replacing my toilet with a Natures Head composting toilet.

These 3 items should allow us to do some serious extended boondocking.

Check out the Airhead Composting toilet
. Takes up less room and has several features that persuaded me to purchase it over the Natures Head. Send me a PO if you want more info.
