Go to Amazon, type in the exact name of your existing battery. This will bring up all batteries that match that model.. Look for a generic that says it fits or replaces the one you have.
Yesterday, I ordered a generic for my Dell Latitude that cost me $22.93 with free freight from Amazon. Been ordering batt's and parts this way for all kinds of my toys for a long time now and so far have not been burned.
Well, my passed history is this: 2001 Jeep Cherokee 2D, 2WDR, 5 Speed towed 4 down in neutral, steering unlocked with no conversions required. Then a 2005 Jeep Cherokee, 4D, 4X4, automatic, transfer case in neutral, tranny in park, steering unlocked.
Currently 99 Dodge Durango 4d, 4X4, Automatic, transfer case in neutral, tranny in park, steering unlocked.
I've transferred the same Roadmaster 9000/9600 Supplemental Brake system onto each vehicle over the years and it continues to work just fine. The first Class A I pulled the jeeps behind was a 1990 32' Winnebago Chieftain and the current Durango is towed by the 1991 American Eagle in my signature.
They're all relatively simple set ups.
There is some proven correlation between kids who learn music at a young age having better math skills. I suspect that as Deb and Ed M has indicated it has more to do with attitude than aptitude. I learned to play both guitar and piano as an adult. Played piano by ear as a kid (pretty well), have a degree in business, but don't have the drive necessary to run my own business. Unless that includes running a household!
You hit on something very interesting there. Your last observation has much more merit when you think about it.
I've been married to the same lady for 51 years and she had always worked outside the home, raised our son, kept our home in very nice shape, with all the household chores done. Hiring outside help when needed, taking care of all the household funds and book keeping, along with becoming a very talented oil painter in her spare time. She also arranged all our vacations and on some occasions she took our son with a girlfriend and her kids on vacation. Sometimes I'd meet her for a week sometimes not.
I was a workaholic running my own businesses 24/7 and she put up with me all these years.
Just look at her job description and tell me she was not self employed the same as you are. Just the nature of the life you ladies live describes you as self employed.
I'd say you have the drive and the know how you just haven't had the time to fit it into your schedules.
And, just an note neither of us ever successfully played an instrument, although we do enjoy most music.
First good one was a Ziese Icon 35 that was a hand me down from a friend of my parents in the early 60's. It died in the late 60's and I bought a Canon AE1 and eventually all it's bells and whistles, including telephoto, macro & wide angle lens', auto winder etc. and remote flash set up. I literally took thousands of slide photos all over the world with it.
Out of curiosity I switched to digital with a simple Kodak Z740 in 06 and surprisingly still use it to this day and have now accumulated several thousand digital images on my hard drive.
I sold the AE1 and all it'd goodies as a package last spring to a young lady that was thrilled to find it.
It's been a fun hobby and is very gratifying when you get that one in a hundred special photo.
Thanks again guys, I called a store in Las Vegas and couple of stores in NY and was advised it's not worth my time pursuing a market for the covers or the Canal stamps of that vintage as there are tons of them out there and no market.
Well, so much for the big inheritance. Guess I'll have to start buying lotto tickets again to find my next fortune.
Are any of you stamp collectors or do you know one that is very knowledgeable?
There are none listed locally in my area and I've found 5 franked "Balboa Canal Zone" unopened envelopes dated September 30, AM 1979 "Canal Zone Postal Service 1904 - 1979 Last Day of Operation".
Trying to figure out if they have any value or are just another batch of envelopes to keep for posterity.
I flunked drums and the clarinet in grammar school and went on to be fairly successful in my own businesses. My son loved Hard Rock, never played an instrument and has been successful with his career which is combined with a business he started 25 years ago.
I've replaced all of mine on MH's & FW's and a couple of hood set ups on cars over the years. Either write down all the numbers or take one off and go to NAPA, AUTO ZONE or etc. or maybe your handy dandy RV service company. You can also find them on Amazon. Length and pounds are the main criteria. You'll find different poundage ratings for different size doors.
I've been traveling in and out of Baja since the mid sixties and never been asked for a bribe, never been intimidated, never shot at, never had a bad meal and always been greeted by friendly people. Even had a couple of major vehicle breakdowns that were repaired correctly and never felt like I'd been screwed over.
I feel more threatened for my safety going into San Diego, CA or the Phoenix - Tucson, AZ valley area. I watch the Phoenix news every day and I don't think there has been a day go by for the past couple of years that there are less than 3 shootings. Most seem to involve Latino citizens and I'd bet them to be mostly drug related.
I don't care where we go in this day and age, be aware of your surrounding, stay away from the areas that support the high crimes, maintain a positive attitude and you will usually receive the same in return and above all let Common Sense rule what you do.
That's kept me safe and alive for nearly 74 years.
We live north of Kingman, AZ on Rte 66 in the NW part of the state at around 3,500' and woke this AM to 27 degrees. It's clear and should get up into the mid 60's this afternoon.
This kind of weather is typical for this area in the winter and we get a little snow (2" to 6") every once in awhile that may last a day or two then back to the 60's and 70's for a few days or weeks.
I think the above advice to head south to 10 is good unless you like to drive these big things in the snow.
I've always worked on the theory that there is the NADA price, the asking price, and the price I'm willing to pay. My price is always considerably below either of the first two. Surprisingly I win most of the time, because I have no problem walking away.
And, yes there are the NADA ON-line prices and the NADA Book prices, you may question the date of the NADA book he'd quoting from it could be a year or two old. I'm not suggesting anything here, just a thought.
There will always be the one you want at the price you are willing to pay if you spend the time looking. The main thing is do your homework first, decide what flaws you can live with or fix yourself, eg: if they are cosmetic and you can fix them yourself your cost could be very little.
Make a list of all the things that need attention, drivers seat etc. $500 to $800 to re-upholster and it will probably not match the passenger seat. Maybe 6 (or 8) new tires at $3,600 to $4,800+/-, $4,000 to $5000 to go through the power train, have hoses updated, fluids changed, airbags checked, turbo tested, air brakes check out.
Do the furnaces work, water heater, ice maker if it has one? Unless he can prove to you that he did indeed check all that then take if off the price.
If NADA says it's worth $XXXX.00 that's your average sales figures for that make, model and year coach. Why pay him $15,000 to $20,000 more than the market is bringing.
I think a little different than most people, but it pays off in the long run.
Enjoy your adventure.
If you go that way stay on 280 until you come to Highway 35, exit 41 (aka Skyline Blvd).
Exit there and go north on 35 following it until you see Lake Merced on your right get into the left lane and follow the sign for the SF Zoo which is a left turn that puts you out at the beach on "the Great Highway".
Stay on the Great Highway for about 4 miles, you'll come to the "Cliff House" (on your left) as you curve right and climb up from the beach you're now on Geary Blvd.
At the top of the hill you might stop at a signal. Stay on Geary Blvd. as it veers to the left you're still on Geary and run a couple of miles to the general area of 23rd to 20th Avenues (cross streets) make a left turn where you find a left turn lane and go two blocks over to California St. and turn right.
Stay on California, when you cross 16th AVE you have two blocks before you hit "PARK PRESIDIO BLVD", best to get in the left lane again. At PARK PRESIDIO BLVD turn left and head out to the Golden Gate Bridge. You'll go up a grade and through a tunnel. I ran my old Winnebago Chieftain & toad and pulled my 34' Alpenlite through there many times. There's plenty of clearance in the tunnel, but if you don't feel comfortable move into the left lane. The lanes are kinda narrow but safe.
A little footnote; 280 is a 4 to 6 lane freeway from SJ to SF. I was raised on the SF Peninsula a long time ago and the street routes seem to have held together, they just go bigger.. If you have a paper version of the MAPQUEST ATLAS look in the California section around page 18 for a blow up of the SF Peninsula and you'll be able to see what I laid out for you above. Or go on line to MapQuest and enter "The Great Highway, San Francisco, Ca" and that will also give you the map I'm talking about.
Oh yeah, the tolls are only charged coming into San Francisco not going out.
Personally, I wouldn't run that East Bay freeway system on a bet as it's a zoo 24/7.
The best part is you'll get to see a beautiful part of SF that most people don't even know is there.
I've never known anyone by the name of WoodGlue, that's kinda scary but I'll answer your question anyway.
There is a fine example of what you're looking for in Rialto, CA. that goes by the name of Walt's RV Supplies.
They got it all and I don't think you can stump them as they've been doing this for over 20 years.
If you want the info directly from the horses mouth contact Judy Wustrack at U-Line Corporation 800-779-2547 or 414-831-2131. She was a great help to me when I needed to repair mine about two years ago.
She directed me to the their website to download the operating & care manuals ( mine is a model B195 ). The manual covers Model B195, B198 & SP18.
She then took me thru the problems I encountered, I had to replace the Water Solenoid as it was leaking as the gasket was rotted out all around the top. She then referred me to the distributor for the parts apdepot.com. I contacted them and they were most helpful and they sent me what I needed. It's worked just fine ever since.
My wife has a 99 Chrysler 300M that we bought new and is prestine and got T-Boned a couple of years ago and we had to replace both passenger side doors.
The body shop that did the work found undamaged used doors through their industry network. Did a perfect match painting them, transferred the interior trim to them and two years later you would never know the vehicle had been damaged. It can be done just find the right shop to do it.
It's a shame you only have 15 days and are controlled by a bus tour, in spite of that you'll still have fun.
Hopefully, it will be a teaser for you to go back again. Rent a car do the Roads Less Traveled tourista thing and stay in B & B's in small towns and villages. We haven't done Ireland but have wandered England and Scotland pretty thoroughly meeting friendly people, seeing neat little towns, enjoyed a pretty good back road system and gained tons of historic facts that we were never taught in school.
