Dr Joe,
As you know, I have complimented you before on your direct and to the point style of communication.
However, since there are members on this board that enjoyed meeting you as well as the seller, I find it highly inappropriate for you to make a statement of public record about your personal dealings with the seller.
To take the word of a person that in my humble opinion was not at all mechanically inclined, is also a short coming on your part. Not everyone has the desire to keep their MH up to par to the degree that you and I have.
I know you spent money on your previous MH, before you handed it over to the buyer. I also sold my previous MH in top condition. The cold fact is that most MH's are sold because they will need lots of work now or in the near future. I do not believe that is the case in your situation.
You and your wife expressed interest in the MH, when you learned that it might be for sale. Your next step should have been hiring a professional to check it out and try to negotiate the sales price accordingly.
Making public statements about your perceived short comings or possible deception of the seller
does not serve the purpose of our desire to gather here.
I trust you take the above in the spirit intended.

Thanks Peter for your usually succinct message. I hated to see the venting, although I can understand where Dr Joe is coming from, unfortunately he takes too literally the opinions of the tech. You have to take some of what is prescribed for your vehicle health and welfare and do what makes sense. Its a shame that so many repairs facilities look at us customers as open wallets.
As for the seller, he had what certainly seemed to be a mighty fine vehicle, and may not have been all that aware of pending problems.
