We'll see what happens after Monday when tariffs go into effect. In theory we should all be paying more for American made products given better benefits and lifestyle. We'll see if American manufacturers also take the opportunity to jack up their prices.

We upgraded our dishwasher yesterday and the sales guy said LG and Samsung appliances were not selling. Said LG/Samsung will start moving manufacturing to the US.

Any recommendations on portable generators? Looks like a EU2200i is about $1k on Amazon. Of course there are much cheaper and more powerful generators out there.

I bought an LG refrigerator over the summer, about $2800. The salesman (Reliable family business at location for 30 years) Said that while he like the Samsung, the customer service was so bad that they stopped carrying the brand until it gets better.

As for a generator, I would go name brand if possible with a duel fuel system. I wish I had that for my Briggs and Stratton generator. I bought it the day a hurricane hit and there were not a lot of options. My Honda generator was too small and wouldn't idle up or down. It was a mother board part that broke and I tried on and off for a year to get the new part. I can buy an adapter for the Briggs and Stratton but I think it cost around $160.

We bought a Whirlpool refrigerator, made in USA.
Dutch doors on top, beverage drawer in the middle, pull out freezer on bottom.

My R410A gauges are made in the USA too.

My old Eu2000i has been in storage for 5 or more years. I cleaned the carb, fuel filter, fuel tank, lines but still unable to bring it to life. I should look for a local power shop just to see how expensive it would be. We didn't use it much so there should be plenty of life left in it.

The little 2000i doesn't push much of a load for sure but it's pretty quiet. Was hoping to use it on a little camping trip with my son.

You will most likely pay a $75 fee for them to find the problem plus replacement parts and labor. Honda is a good generator but parts could be hard to get for an older model.
I bet my Honda generator didn't even have 75 running hours on it when it quit. It is recommended that you run them once a month. I am negligent when it comes to that.

Picked up some new sneakers for the Blazer today.
From WalMart, surprised they were made in the USA. They are an old tread design so tooling is long paid for and with 251K on the truck, who knows how long I'll need them.

Bought a Mathews Triax compound bow. Very quiet and smooth on the release. It's a little heavy but a very nice first bow. It's gonna take some time to dial it in as I went with a higher tech garmin xero site. The setup is way over my capabilities so hopefully I keep getting better over time.

I would run it regularly when I had the popup trailer but that's been at least 8 years ago. Yikes, time flies!

They took a $55 deposit to diagnose and will call to get approval before changing parts. We'll see if it's worth repairing.

Bought a set of Cooper Discoverer AT3 XLT's today.
I don't think a single one of the OEM Firestone Transforce AT's were actually round.

The tires look good. They have a rugged off-road look but the tread looks like it will handle highway driving well.

Are you also putting on custom wheels, or keeping the ones on the truck?

Tires I replaced were Transforce ATs and were in terrible shape too. Less than 3 yrs old, felt like belts had slipped.
However myself and others have had good luck with the Transforce HT, just a mild highway tread pattern.

I'm on my second set of AT3's, and when these are gone will buy another set. Occasionally they have a $70.00 rebate, got it with my first set. I run standard 235-85-16's (E load) and got the first set for $480.00.

These came with a $50 Discount Tire rebate and a $70 Cooper rebate.
Stock size on this truck is LT275/70R18--they ran $191 each before the rebates

Sweet for both. Imagine Kimber is made not even 20 miles from me but to even get one on a sportsman permit have to jump across an ocean to get one.

Good. If I didn't live in this crazy State I would apply for more permits. I don't want to buy anything else while I still live in this Liberal Democrat sh*thole.

Our knife laws somewhat loosened up. Firearms are another story. I spent last night converting my 15 round magazines to 10 rounds. I sent a bunch of 15 round to Georgia in case the law changes, but I doubt it will.

Traded my 2K f250 for 2018 f150. Had around 350,000 miles but still running as new not using any oil or anything. Did have a tick in 6th gear, like a mild knocking noise. Could get a reman tranny for around $2K but wife agreed it could start nickel and dimeing me to death. Plus only paid a couple thou more that I did the f250 in 2000. Got my moneys worth out of it.
