I never buy tires with "GOOD" in their name.
My reasoning is that they must have little confidence in the quality of their tires. so they try to label them as "good", because other factors may tend to indicate otherwise.

Just kidding not trying to start a tire war.

If the word China is somewhere on the tire, we take that as a red flag (so to speak) warning.

In the case of Goodyear, that would be James Goodyear, founder of the company 😊 😊😊.
I did put the wrangler H/T on my TV. Could be a contender for the TT.
Made in US i hope!

A flagpole holder from sandlapper ( first quality construction). Poles and flags. I found some nice little wood finials at the flag store in Sparks NV that work with the Lowes painter poles. Ordered an air Forums flag today as well. Got my red numbers too, just waiting for clear dry weather to put them on. Click image for larger version

The issue is that in my kitchen configuration the microwave space is small. Nonetheless after careful hunting I believe I found "the one" that will be the perfect replacement- a Panasonic. Not only is it slightly larger inside but it has sensor cooking, is lighter and also has inverter technology that runs at different power levels versus just shutting on and off like most. It also has 250 more watts of power than the previous model at 950 watts. Interestingly when I looked up the power consumption my previous model drew 1000 watts to utilize 700 watts of cooking power. This one uses 1150 watts to produce 950 watts of cooking power. We had a large one for years and really liked it in the house. Hopefully the extra 2 inches in width and almost 2 inches in depth will work out ok.
Newbie question: Do you feel that a microwave is important, presumably especially for summer cooking?

Finally installed our new Maxim sky light. Couldn't believe the piece of garbage Airstream put in. It's a HUGE difference. Well worth the investment.Click image for larger version

Hi Julie J,
What is the difference you notice with the new skylight?
Thanks!

I'll butt in; Biggest difference = water on the outside.....dry on the inside.

Exactly! You go from cheap plastic that is cracked before the Airstream even leaves the factory to a quality we'll built skylight that will last a lifetime. Maxim builds skylights for homes and started building these specifically for Airstreams. You can only order them from the company. Check out the thread that Bambi_Bandit did titled "Step by Step: EOM Skylight With New Custom Maxim Skylight". It will blow you away.

Hi Bold. Did you install the dispenser with tape and screws, or just tape? Curious as I have been hesitant to put screw holes in the shower wall. Joe

I have used those simple human dispensers in the past. I used adhesive strips and silicone, stayed up for years!
