Thanks General Electric

We bought a condo as a rental investment property and we’re doing some renovation. The over the range microwave, a GE, needed replacement so we chose a similar new GE model. I hoped the new microwave would fit on the same bracket as the old, the tabs at the bottom are one half inch too far out. It seems some design engineer at General Electric had to justify his existence by making a change in the mounting bracket configuration. Also the top bolts through the cabinet are 1/2 inch off. Arrrrrrr!

Protecting Your RV Awning from Wind Damage

Nick Russell has a blog post today on this topic and I couldn’t say it better myself, so I won’t try :-)

What Happened with Your Motorhome!?

wpid-IMG_20130421_173702_176.jpgUnless you just joined us you know that we parked our 2001 National Islander 40′ motorhome and were planning to sell it.  It didn’t sell, probably because it needs some cosmetic work, but that’s okay because it has been useful.  The last three months our oldest daughter has been using it.  She lost her job in Illinois and took the opportunity to move to Florida!  While waiting to get into more permanent housing she has been staying in the RV at a resort near our home.

In July we plan to put the RV on the market again.  We only need to get about $36,000 for it, which is VERY reasonable even with the work it needs.  Similar models in great condition go for about $50,000.  I suppose we’ll try once more to sell it as-is, and if that’s not successful we’ll spend around $3,000 to “make it pretty” and bump the price up to to around $44,000.
