Pump Prolbem Solved -- Light Fixed &.....
The new Shurflo pump leaking at the connection problem is fixed. I tightened the connection with a pair of pliers instead of my fingers. A tight connection solved the drip, drip, drip.
Our porch light switch was not working properly. We had to push it a half dozen times to get the light to turn on. I bought a switch a while back and today finally got around to installing it. The porch light works perfectly now.
After fixing the light I installed the two new entry step carpets. Our old ones were getting holes in them and the edges were getting really ratty. I really like all of these easy jobs. They are fast and quickly solve a problem.
Next I need to order the hot water heater control module. We have hot water only if I manually light the heater. It would be nice to be able to just flip the switch inside the coach like it is supposed to work.
We bought the 1988 Bounder for $10,000 from a dealer. We had one breakdown (that shouldn’t have happened —– dealer negligence), we replace the exhaust system with Thorley headers and have done incidental minor repairs and replacements. I do not think we have reached $4,000 in cost for the RV plus repairs and amenities for the coach, like throw rugs and bedding. Even with the purchase of a Honda eu2000i Generator, I do not think we have reached the $14,000 mark. OK, very vague possibility we could have hit $15,000, but I don’t think so.
Of course if you add camping and gas to it, the price goes up a bit. I am not including that. All in all I think we got a pretty good deal when we purchased our motorhome. It has added a lot of pleasure to our lives.
