......and the 69'ers Club Welcome.

If you have any questions at all even little ones - we have all had them at one time or another or will have them shortly. So if you can not find what you are looking for throughout your searches here - do not be afraid to ask the question even though it may have been asked a 100 times before...

That is a great price and now you have $500 to get you started.

I forgot to add on my list we changed our old Univolt out - we had it bench tested by professionals and the transformer was deader than a door knob. Sometimes it is worth it if just the capacitors are toast - to replace them at $15.00 each they still make them - believe it or not. General Electric of Canada still pumps them out - but they are hard to find and they have to be special ordered.

Be sure to check here first before getting any work done outside -there are lots of recommendations, both reputable dealers and DIY hints that require minimal skill - just lots of photos and patience and this crew here can walk you through pretty much anything. Or the very least give you both sides of the issue so that you can make an educated decision.

Well, about that "money pit" thing. I think they all turn out to be something we really enjoy spending our time and money on. Remember it's a 69 and no doubt will need some things fixed or replaced. Mine is a 78, it was certainly ready to camp when I bought it, BUT there were so many things that I just wanted to change a little. Then the A/C decided 28 years was enough and I decided 28 years was probably enough for the water heater too. Then the shore water inlet came loose and was put to rest with the A/C and WH. It's truely been a labor of love for both me and my check book. It doesn't seem so bad if you do all the work you can yourself and then do the rest as you can afford. Happy camping.
