Larry....Vent any time & hang in there. I'm sure they'll figure out what path should be taken & get you fixed up. From what I've seen, hearts & parts they seem to have a good grip on & can fix 'em. The thyroid, well, they can help a lot, but it often takes a long time to get it right. Meanwhile... if you have good days, bad days.....enjoy the good ones & rest the bad ones.

Smitty....that's a brawny generator. If it says "Dayton", it's got quality from the factory.

Yep - it's a Dayton. 8-) Just tested it out too. ONE PULL with stale gas! Fired right up without one hiccup! Ran my 1500 watt heat gun no problem. YEAH!!

My cousin sold me that real cheap, since he owed me some cash for a starter on his stump grinder. Both of us are happy, so it's a win-win all around! :cheers:

I finally made it to Freddy's for Java. But I got the cold pot, so I just added ice. Its WARM down here, I have been mowing in a T-shirt. Blew the leaves out of the drive, drove down the street and mowed the church's yard. Too nice to work inside.
I sharpened a few chain saw chains, painted the new flu for our 2nd stove, and replaced the cracked glass in the new stove. See pic. That took me 2 hours to get 4 screws out, but I was going slow, slow, slow so I wouldn't snap them off. After wacking the sides of the screw head with a ballpean hammer, the first one came out very easily. But my luck ended there. The hex wrench stripped out the next three heads, so I had to slot them, and use a large screwdriver. That worked fine, after continuously tapping the heads to loosen them up. All was good. The new screws got a healthy dose of Anti-seize before installing them.
I finished the raised hearth for the new stove today. Just got done grouting it. Next step is to cut a hole thru the wall for the direct vent terminator.
Freddy, that is a mighty fine enclosure! That canvas is heavy. Is it brand new?
Smitty, that generator will outlast you! Nice find!
Rob, our neighbors just had their first kid yesterday. There must be something in the air.... ohhhhhhh! the full moon!

Brand new! Made by Rhino Shelter out of Connecticut. I believe originally designed & made in CT, they are now made in China, but offices are still in CT. Good people & pretty good product. They are guaranteed for two years, but the fact of the matter is around here the covers usually last 8 to 15 years..... A lot depends on the weather. I'll tell you what... a few places I had to cut holes with my jackknife and it was difficult! Ask me in 2023 how it's holding up!

And.... if you are in the market for one, be a bit careful.... it seems the words "rhino shelter" are a bit like scotch tape. Other companies use the words, but are not Rhino Shelters.

Missed coffe, McD's and dash, down to NJ. Changed out the front fenders on the jeep GC today. wasn't too bad. Old ones were rusting out over wheel arches. I also pulled lower body skirts to see what was hiding under them. Oh boy!!!! one side rocker is pretty much gone, and other ones still there but not far from gone. Would do the replacing myself, but i just don't have the time. its a 2 day repair once parts are got, with cutting out old metal(complete rockers in/outside sections), welding in new panels, sealing up and painting. Now to shop around local shops i know get a few estimates.

Hospital recliners are torture devices, and their coffee is pretty poor compared to the "Maine blend". :cry:
