RE: motorhome pricing

Older is fine if you're aware everything is old, age takes its toll on many things. We love our old 07 motorhome, but much needed to be replaced, it sat in a barn much of its life, so there's plenty of unseen rust. Funny how the local inspector didn't notice it, well it was nowhere on his report. After replacing a rusty exhaust manifold, belts, hoses and filters it drives, rides and handles wonderfully. The leveling hoses are rubber and old so they had bulges and have all been replaced, as well as the refrigerator, 2 A/Cs, water pump, inverter, batteries, you get the idea. Big thing is many older units had/have quality build, ours is solid going down the road, no squeaks, no leaks, can run all day at 65-70 mph. It's perfect for us once we systematically replaced the older things that time and use wore out. Best of luck, and with tools and utube many of us become far more mechanical than we could have ever imagined!

RE: Washer issue driving me nuts

Stupid me I bought a bucco bucks Bosch dishwasher for the house, 4 yrs later a repairman asks how often do you run this? I said we have a son, his bride and newborn living with us as they find a house, and I do daycare for the grand kids, so 2 maybe 3 times a day. He stated MODERN DISHWASHERS ARE ONLY DESIGNED TO RUN 3 TO 4 TIMES A WEEK!!! I wore it out!! Energy efficient means less water, smaller motors, smaller heating elements, ETC. Pretty sure it's the same for all modern appliances. With our HE washer I often have to wash clothes twice to remove dirt/odors, or use a heavy perfumed detergent and softner(not going to happen). I also have to wipe the water out of the rubber door gasket to avoid moldy stagnant water sitting in it, and removing the detergent tray and spraying with a bleach & water solution to prevent mold in that dark moist area. But hey we we're saving the planet even though we are having to run the appliance twice as often to get the results of the old ones running once. Truly I don't understand it, but what are the options? Wipe out every area, spray with a bleach/water solution and hopefully you can get ahead of the smell & mold. Sorry for the rant, but its my challenge too.

RE: Off topic re Pet Peeves

Look for the good and find it is all around. Share the joy with words of encouragement. Choose happiness, choose to share happiness and don't look back. Anyone can be a nasty, unhappy complaining grump. Make good choices and enjoy, no regrets in looking and experiencing the best life has to offer!! Make 2023 the best year yet!!
