It's all about managing expectations. Only hotel around in the middle of nowhere central America? I'll take it.

Supposedly nice hotel here in the US that charges $100/night and the rooms are dirty and smelly? Pass.

Speaking of fans, I see a/c is an option.
Yeah, the guy that started Parkliner owned/lived in/modified other fiberglass trailers and then realized he could build a better one himself. I'd rather pay $15k for a brand spanking new one with much nicer fixtures and appliances and no issues than $8k for a 25 year old one with "character".

I went to change the oil in the new-to-me KTM 525 last night. Drained the oil, didn't look too bad. Not too much swarf stuck to the drain plug magnet, OK. Went to clean the two screens, wait a minute, one is missing. Ugh. OK, the screen is only $10, the two o-rings I need, backordered until August 15th

Would now be an appropriate time to say, 'come on over and see if any work for you'?

For some reason I picture you leaning up against the wall of a gas station...chewing tobacco. Buddy drops his bike and you...just standing there, spitting...'yup...I did that before'...spit....

(goofing of course, Kaw...I love ya)

Chris you are more than welcome, I thought that would be understood. We engineers often assume people see our thoughts. I'm headed to Portland for lunch with a friend, We could meet up.

Thanks, but I don't have the part the o-rings fit onto yet, so I have no idea what size I need.

Apparently not. In this case, ignorance was bliss.
