Angry Parts are more than a simple problem

Couldn't be a worse time to rehab a rig. Haven't been able to replace an AC unit or the water heater yet and have been trying to get them since early April. Installed a railing on the stairs so that Joyce can have her knee surgery. Ordered that April 12 and just got it yesterday. Parts are a ridiculous problem right now.

I still have a 13,500 BTU Coleman RV air conditioner in my shed I'll give to anyone who want's it. I've been trying to give it away for years now. It's sitting in my shed, and hopefully, mice have not gotten into it. It's yours for free, come and get it! No plenum though, it stayed with the original camper.

But yes, agree, getting parts is a nightmare right now.

Sounds like a good deal for someone up there. Since I'm replacing an Atwood I doubt I could make things match. Never seen a unit quite like an Atwood.

After selling my Monte I wanted to sell my F350 and buy an F150. But choices on the lots are not close to what I want. And ordering one may take 6 months or more to get according to dealer due to chip shortages.

Great time to sell mine as the value is way higher than a year ago. But terrible time to buy if you can even find anything near what you want.

We are having a hard time buying material, brass, aluminum, and stainless for the shop. We can find it but it is getting expensive and brass is going to go through the roof so we will buy a year’s supply in the very near future.

Took us 24 weeks to get a Lazy Boy sofa and 2 recliners. The plant is 30 miles from us!

My Rv carport is 31 ft . Perfect for our 2014 Cougar 28RLS. Now that we purchased our Montana High Country 295RL I'm adding 10 ft to the carport.Due to a material shortage 12 week out to add on the 10ft extension. 2017 when 18 x 31 carport with 3 panel drop down walls on side & back 5000.00. Add 10 ft to existing carport 1800.00 . Material prices are ridiculous also.

If you still need a water heater, I have a Suburban 10 gal that I replaced with an on demand system.

Thanks, but I finally got an on demand and am installing it today if it stops raining. Two weeks of big time heat and no rain and now it finally decides to rain on the day I'm going to work on the rig.

We need some stainless steel, 44 weeks out and maybe but not certain we can get it then. And the price has more than doubled $5000 for 20 bars of 7/8 round.
