Well, we recently purchased a used 2500 Hd Chevy with a Duramax Diesel and Allison Transmission. It had been in a fire in Pigeon Forge TN. It was sitting in a driveway behind two other cars and the front of the truck melted off(Plastic) and the windshield cracked.
to make a long story short, my son-in-law has spent days fine tuning the truck to meet my needs. We have an RV and it needed to be fitted to pull it. Well the truck had to have anew windshield and unknown to me it was leaking. We had just put an new Pioneer touch screen radio in it.
The windshield leak was directly over the radio and water fried the touch screen. We had to also install a new headliner. Well, I purchased a new touch screen radio($806.00), which the glass installer's insurance company paid for, and we spent 5 hours installing and setting it up last evening. They had installed a new windshield the previous day and we had to slide the new headliner in through the front window opening because it is a crew cab truck and the liner would not go in the open door without bending it. The new radio has just about every thing one can get on it, GPS, Blue Tooth hands free, CD and DVD player, Sierius(S) reciever, and back up camera. All these extras need to have antennas and other set up procedures completed, plus programming.
Well the new to me truck is shaping up, and I am really pleased with it.
We still need to make a few more tweaks on the radio instillation and I am going to purchase a new set of 10 ply Firestone TransForce tires so it will be 100% road ready for the new camping season coming up. Here's hoping this year will be a good year for Old Pop POp and sweetie?
I had hopes of spending Feb and first part of March in Florida, however Sweetie need a new hardwood floor in the dining room and entrance hall. There goes my first 6 week trip.
Well, I suppose "every dog needs a bone" every now and then. Why we have been married 46 years and still like each other. I give her a few, with much love attached. She lets me have a few also, (New Truck, New Henry Lever Gun) life is good while it last!
Too me, it is really frustrating tweaking electronics. I don't have the patience for it....
