Harry, growing up in the 50's we were teenagers then.  It's the 40's where we slept on the fire escape because it was too hot in the house.  We went on the roof to watch fireworks from Coney Island.   We had Fly Paper hanging all over the Kitchen because the windows were always open.

We opened the fire hydrants in the street and with a double opened can we sprayed everyone even cars with open windows.  Too young to go to the beach alone.

Frank, sounds like you got a bargain! Could be the luck o' the Irish, except you ain't Irish. Jo and I talk of growing up in the 50's and A/C in homes was unheard of, no less an RV.

Clarification: The A/C unit may be replaced.

The Camper is in the Shop as of 0900 this morning. Almost sounds like they want to replace it. If so, then the Cornerstone Extended Warranty should cover it , except for the $200 deductible. A minor problem with one of the slides too.

Have a great day and weekend Troopers!  Toujours Pret!
