Well, the Splendide washer discharge pump finally gave up the ghost. It lived a long 26 years. Since Splendide thinks that just not selling the pump anymore will get me to buy a whole new unit, I ordered the newer different discharge pump and modified the washer to use it. Basically the new pump combines the filter and pump into one unit. I made a mounting plate for the new pump and mounted it where the filter was. The mount allowed me to cant the pump since the hoses are at 90' instead of 180' as the original. I had to make an extension power line to the pump. Tested and it all works great for 10% the cost of the unit. Not that we use it that often, but I like having the option.

I'll snap a few tomorrow. I need to adjust the discharge hose and test it out one more time. Seems like the pump has a hard time getting the water out of the hose and since the hose is longer it keeps trying to run the pump. I might put a check valve in there or lengthen the discharge hose so that it will siphon into the drain.

Default Door Wind Noise Solved

I did this simple fix last summer and it been noise free since. I bent then crimped a small piece of roughly 15 ga aluminum to the inside of the slot for the air latch. The taper on the latch snugs the door up just right.

Default NEW Batteries.

Half the new battery bank is in. 4/0 cables, new cheap GC2's(couldn't see a reason to get anything "better" until I jump to lithium)

Rustoleum REFORMER on the scraped down and sanded/cleaned tray.

that one 31 in the last photo is from 2014, but ok. it still starts the bus all on it's own. I suspect the 8D in the opposite bay is just a ghost.

Like to see that mod. I got a new Splendide and hope not to have to worry about that for a long time. Shame on them about parts. I didn't know. I would have gotten an over and under split system if I did.

I put it on Randy's thread for Splendide washers.
