Don't give up. Maybe it is a Newell worth $100K that any park would love to see roll through the gate. We just need to know what it is to advise you.
I don't have more info yet, but JAXFL's response:
In this area a 20 year old MH is way below $15K. I see 8-15 year old ones for sale for $8-12K all the time.
was exactly what I need.
I'm not worried about the mechanical end of it. Like I said, my husband is an instructor in a school with a diesel program and can adequately assess whether it is sea worth, so to speak.
After more consideration, it's probably not going to be a good deal and won't be what we need.
We wouldn't be without our softener. We use the Travelsoft which uses solar salt for regeneration.
We also use a two cartridge whole house filter system ahead of the softener with a sediment filter followed by a taste a odor filter as sold by the RV Water Filter Store.
And every single one of our water connections has a quick connect on it (except of course for the first connection to the hydrant)
