Moved my battery

Unread postby campinfan on Tue Apr 29, 2008 7:01 pm

Well, I did it this weekend. I needed to move my battery since it was in the way of the snap up bracket for my weight bars. It may be a first but it actually went off without any problems or unforeseen issues. Usually every 5 minute project ends up taking an hour. Now I need to tackle the leak under my sink...the little nylon O ring keeps leaking where the the two sinks join up. Yeah, I could have the dealer fix it, but this is supposed to be an easy fix. Next time out, I will replace the O ring and see if that works.

"Usually every 5 minute project ends up taking an hour."
That sure is a true statement for my projects. Yesterday I put together a Foosball table. I thought it would take about an hour and it took almost four hours. I had to read the directions over and over and over....

"Usually every 5 minute project ends up taking an hour."

LOL Ok it's NOT just me then. I purchased a really nice new computer desk from Nebraska Furniture Mart a few weeks ago and it SAID that some assembly was required. I knew I was in trouble when the 5' long by 5' tall desk with hutch arrived in a package that was 8" thick. The 2 boxes weighed over 200 lb. so it took two of us to load them into the back of my truck. When I got home and opened to the first page of the CATALOG they sent to tell me how to put it together and saw on the first page "How to select the perfect tree" I KNEW I was in trouble. It took me 24 hours to get that darned thing completed (and I'm talking about WORK hours, not elapsed time).
