First, I wish tell all happy holidays, and to be safe. As I posted on my last blog I was discouraged. Well, last night I looked on line at materials on the Home Depot and Lowes web site. I found some goodies there that were not as expensive as I thought. I found things like tile, and even the lumber to get her roof fixed. I am not sure however if that used 2+4's or the 2+3's. In any case they were 1.67 for 8 ft. Rather that's a 1.67 a foot I hope not. I found tile for as low as 67 cents which was good and anything is better then whats in there. I talked to a neighbor and he suggested a place close to me that may have the part I need to stop my kitchen faucet from leaking. I hope so. What is a real drag is the sink hole is a one hole style. So if I can find a 3 or more hole type sink I would be happy. Thank you Pat for the advice and encouragement to look beyond. It really helped me. I get discouraged fairly easy, especially when money is so tight. It amazes me that I worked for so long and get so little back of the money I put in. But what can I do? I really need to research my coaches chassis. I have 19.5 tires and was told they do not make those anymore. I hope that's not the case as who can afford 1400 for rims! So, as I get things done I will post pics for others to see, and maybe it will help someone in the same boat that I am in. Again, I wish all a Happy and safe Holiday season.       Scott.

Thanks for the info Ed! Larry said they were common, but did not tell me the price.All I can say to 1100 is holly cow! But its worth it. What I do not like is the previous owner put radials on the back and biased ply on the front. I hate the way it feels going down the road. They are new on the front, and the backs are I guess 75-80%. But my left rear out is "wobbling", or that's what my wife said. So I got to get her to drive it so I can see whats going on. I'm hoping its the hub cap she is seeing. I yet to purchase a bottle jack and lug wrench, so that's my first task. I noticed my wheel cylinder is leaking too. Every time I turn around I find something. Maybe I should stop turning around? Again, thanks for the info and will look into it the first of the yr. I want those two off the front. Happy new yr!!
