Hey ... Glad to see you back. I was worried that you may have had trouble on the trip.

Although the electricity (AND the water, AND the propane AND the head) wasn't done in B, my wife and I made a run up to New Jersey and back. Overall it was a great trip.

I say who needs all those things for just a little fun! Glad to hear it was a great trip. We had the solar running on our drive, great for charging the phones and for our led light strips.

Here's something to think about...
Habitat For Humanity REstore

Check out this one's homepage
(About an hour north of me)

Restore | Habitat for Humanity of Washington County

And if you go to their FB page, they list some very reasonable prices.

From their homepage:

I love the restore! I've poked around quite a bit in the San Diego one and will probably find myself back there in the future. We may go totally custom too. Hubs was a cabinet maker in his last life.

You have noises in the engine? One or more?

When do you hear the noise:

Sometime
All the time
At idle
On the road while cruising
On the road under acceleration

Can you do anything, like lift your foot off the accelerator pedal a little to make the noise go away?

Do you have an oil pressure light? Does the light come on when the engine is running?

If you have an oil pressure gauge, what does it read? Does the needle drop to zero (or very low) when you take your foot off the accelerator and climb back up a bit when you step on the accelerator?

Does the engine run hot on the temperature gauge?

These are questions a mechanic would ask.
