It's kind of a hobby, working on them. Or it's something you just hate to do.

Got to be a jack of all trades when buying a camper Later RJD

That's the truth. I've had to rewire my air conditioner thermostat as it came from the factory wired wrong and other numerous issues that I've taken care of. I'm grateful for this forum however, as it definitely gives you some very good advice from people who have been there already with a particular issue.
