Our Ferg's is the one my Master won't use due to a major disagreement. Honestly they're the best here, I have an account there, but I might visit twice a year. Top notch counter guys! They're like friends! I ran into one once at a Lowes, at the same time we said "Looking for the plumbing section?" I was three months late in hearing that Jim, who beat cancer once, but not the second time.

We may have had a mixed up here or there, but nothing that stands out.

No, but thanks for spamming PZ. I don't do accounts at supply houses. I am a one man shop that does plumbing, heating, and air. I use one business credit card at multiple supply houses. I'm not going to write 10 checks to different suppliers at the end of each month.

Fergs is my favorite too. I like to shop for my own parts. I'm not a big fan of waiting in line and giving my list to the counter guy to go in the back and pull my parts.

Stopped to look at a job on the way home. Snapped a picture. V10, had her up to 80 once, rides nice! But we'll see once she's loaded. Honestly I don't think as well as the diesel, but I don't know with the v10. We're going to cut our weight, have to going from a 550 to a 450. All fiberglass box... not sure about that.

Always take photos with your phone horizontal, when you take a picture with your phone vertical it will auto rotate it to sideways on PZ.

Spam? Far from it, Just a guy who cares about the future of the plumbing trade unlike Home Depot. Many 1 truck house guys use wolverine and keep a card on file. But it sounds like youve got it all figured out, Sorry to bother.

You haven't posted an introduction as required, therefore you are currently considered a handy hack here.

My brother did just that a week and a half ago. He was in HD for about 15 minutes. When he returned tom his truck, he noticed his tail license plate was missing. Needless to say, the theft report from the police (which DMV needs to release a new one) then on to get a temp plate cost him a half day. So much for saving time.

I was at my go to supply house yesterday and picjked up a 3/4" pressure reducer. The inv said 3/4" but the trainee grabbed a 1" and your truly didn't catch it. Fortunately, someone else did. Good thing too. It was going to my place in the mountains 200 miles away next weekend with only an Ace Hardware open on the weekends charging double (if they have it). Caveat emptor.

Anything is better than sinking 2k or more into injectors on a Deizel, once this starts giving you troubles, it almost never ends....
Our e550 was 15.5, this one is 14.5, so we're trimming the weight, going through ever bin and box we don't need, or have been on there for over a decade. Taking off heavy tools that we can load when needed, like pipe threading equipment and such.

Tomorrow will be day three, day one was picking it up, moving shelves and a few other errands. We'll be finished tomorrow. My Master is anal about keeping the truck clean to begin with, but I'll have to say it's coming out better. One new aluminum shelf instead of wood. The one thing I don't really like is the fiberglass box. I wanted to at least put up 1/4" plywood with 1x4 or 6 for anchoring, but not my truck.

I'm getting tired. Have a full schedule next week, might work Saturday, but I'm on vacation 9/19-9/27! Taking the family to San Diego, first family vacation other than a long weekend. Unfortunately I know it's not going to be relaxing, so much to do and show my son. He'll be on an airplane for the first time ever on his 9th birthday! He's both excited and scared at the same time.

I'll turn my phone sideways and take some pictures tomorrow. I don't think everything will be back in place, just everything we'll need next week.
