Ia€™ve broken the cost into time-based costs that you incur whether you use the motorhome or not, mileage-based costs that you incur as you travel down the road, usage-based costs that you incur to live in the motorhome, and other costs, which I pretty much ignore. The following makes numerous assumptions and cuts quite a few corners to arrive at representative costs without having to fill a book. If you buy a motorhome and park it in the barn behind your house and never use it, it still costs money.
Your manufacturera€™s warranty should cover major repairs during the warranty period (typically one to three years) but after that you need a service contract.

Cars can be expensive and oil changes are just one of the additional costs that come along with them. Depending on where you go for your oil change, you can typically expect to pay approximately $25 or more for the oil and the labor. It will also cost more depending on how low you are on when you go into the shop for your oil change. They will also refill or top off your fluid that is low if they decide that it is a safety hazard to drive without it. This means that all of the old oil has to be cleaned out completely and it’s not as simple as some people think.
As long as you trust their work and you know that they can do a good job, you will be saving a good deal of money for great quality work. Most people can expect to pay around $20 to $40, though there are shops that will offer coupons, discounts, or deals based on what other things you might have done while you’re there for the oil change. This is the single best thing that you can do in order to save money on your oil change, and at times you may even be able to get it done for only $10 with the right coupons.

CHALLENGE #158: Carefully weigh 200 pounds of nutrient-rich soil and plant a sapling in it. If you have the wanderlust and will use it for a significant part of the year and youa€™re smart when you make the purchase, ita€™s a bargaina€”how else can a middle-class couple possibly afford to travel full or near-full time? Based on what Ia€™ve learned from others and verified by surfing NADA and the online sales sites, depreciation runs about 18% the first year, 10% the second, 8% the third, 6% the fourth and fifth, and then slowly declines to 2% around year twelve. Insurance costs vary, being based on the cost to replace the motorhome and to some extent on intended use (storage, recreational use, or full time use).
I know, the insurers make money on these contracts so on the average you spend more for a service contract than for paying out of pocket, but the cost of a service contract is predictable. Leta€™s assume you drive a diesel coach that gets 9 mpg and that diesel costs $3.25 per gallon. Costs vary, depending mostly on the package you order, but Ia€™ll use $40 per month ($480 per year or $1.32 per day). You cana€™t ignore those costs, but youa€™ll incur them whether youa€™re living in a motorhome or a stick-and-brick so theya€™re not pertinent to this discussion. This is a question that you probably ask yourself as you budget for the expenses that go along with having a car.
Oil changes can add up to be expensive, especially if you get it done in a place that checks other things and will charge you more to fix things that you could have done yourself at home. The answer to this has several variables but it will all come down to essentially the same price. It will, of course, cost more if you get the higher grade oils or if you choose name brand oil.
Most auto stores will check all of your fluid levels in your car and they will charge more for the oil change if you need more than a quart of oil, they will charge you for the additional oil that you need.
Just make sure that you get an idea of what they will be refilling or tuning up before they do it so that you can estimate the price ahead of time. The oil can’t just be put into the car with the old oil or you risk damaging your car. Doing it yourself, however, will save you somewhere around $10 for the oil change because you won’t have to pay for labor. If there are local mechanics that you have dealt with in the past, or if you know someone who can do it themselves, take your car to them.

And, 150 years after publication of a€?Origin of Species,a€? the majority of Americans dona€™t believe we evolved. By November 1923 a dollar was worth 630 billion marks, a loaf of bread cost 140 billion marks, and Germany was disintegrating under the strain..


But before you make the plunge, you need to carefully consider the impact on your finances and make some smart decisions. If Ia€™ve missed something or you disagree with my estimates, change them (although youa€™ll probably change the bottom line only a few percentage points). The cost of a spot in an RV park or campground is all over the map and boondocking is free, but Ia€™m going to use $15 per day, or $5,475 per year for a fulltimer. We bought a like-new three year old 39a€™ Newmar diesel motorhome with 28K miles on it for a little more than $100K and are very happy with it. Keep the shiny side up and dona€™t forget to put a rock on the sewer adapter before you pull the dump handle. One of the most important things we do for our car is get it’s oil changed every 5,000 miles. The word has two parts: neo-, from the Greek neos (new), and -logism, from the Greek logos (word, speech). They shrewdly cornered the market on a black, sticky substance to cover the roads they were building. In any case, Ia€™m not a financial advisor so please do not bet your financial future on these numbers without spending a lot of time in research and building your own spreadsheets. If you financed some or all of the purchase, youa€™ll pay interest, probably in the neighborhood of 7.5%. Sometimes that includes electricity and sometimes not, so Ia€™ll toss in a little for juice and round it up to $6,000 per year, or $16.44 per day. If you can afford new, go for it and enjoy it; we and others like us will be waiting in line to buy your next hand-me-down!
She’s been very good to us over the past 9 years and we have so many great memories in this car.
I usually coordinate my oil change with my shopping trip to Walmart because they can change the oil in my car while I shop. Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks.A Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black. If you own nothing, the equity thata€™s tied up in the motorhome could be invested somewhere earning around 7.5% in a conservative balanced portfolio. I wanted a brand new vehicle that I would drive for years to come, and that’s exactly what happened. Like driving my babies home from the hospital, taking our first road trip and dropping my kids off for their first day of school. But, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop.A Analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal. So leta€™s assume that wea€™ll pay about 7.5% for the money we or someone else has tied up in the coach. You can also save a lot in the a€?Other Costsa€? category that we didna€™t include by eating out less, buying from discount warehouses, doing more free recreational activities, and so on. If youa€™re driving a newer coach your costs may be lower while an ancient one will cost more, but the difference isna€™t as significant as you might think. Ita€™s a simple fact: You will never save money by replacing your old motorhome with a new one. Please keep a positive attitude with your replies and it should all be worth our efforts.Since Ia€™ve become a member of E2S, Ia€™m starting to see a lot of the JUNK work which others have paid a lot of money, only to end up in disappointment. I also like to get my oil changed at Walmart because they carry Pennzoil. All Pennzoil products help clean out sludge lesser oils leave behind. Ia€™d like to show and explain how things would be done from the a€?Old Doga€? perspective.
Just clamp the bar to the (cylinder base gasket area), in your vice instead of attempting to clamp the cylinder. It was suggested from a friend to use this hone while running the drill in A reverse direction. I think that others will agree with me that the final fitting is far more important than the boring machine operation.
The power stroker didn't turn out to be very practicle for one at a time cylinder work. I spent a good part of the day hacking on a chunk of aluminum to turn it into a reed valve block.
With a little forethought any person can do this kind of workmanship on entry level equipment. Ia€™m attempting to encourage any of you people to add some machine shop capabilities to your work shop. As your capabilities grow so will your business grow.It takes time but certainly is rewarding to me.
Maybe a TIG welder first, Lathe, mill, & Cylinder service equipment, my family has always been lifelong machinery junkies.
Wea€™ll do final fitting before welding it on.It took some thinking to figure out how to clamp the cylinder to the mill table.
The last little problem is the need for enough clearance around the manifold for the TIG welding torch.
Next week we will start putting things together.After the reed installation we need to finish up the liner install. IfA  you read my thread you will learn about machine shop procedures which you wona€™t learn many other places. There are some very foolish people on our E2S site who wish to wreck this for everyone else. There are also the Rottler & Van Norman machines which are also around if you look for them.
If youa€™re looking for a boring bar & the latter 2 are available, they are all top quality pieces of equipment. I was introduced to the Kwik Way brand back in the 70a€™s & have never had any reason to switch to other brands.
