    Thumbs down Thermostat on van went out.........

    It was freezing here, well still is actually, and on our way to Bowling Green for supper, the thermomostat stuck open. No heat what so ever........BRRRRRR!!!!! So we stop at Advance and get a thermostat and the gasket, it cost less than $5.00, so Matthew and I were both happy!!!!

    I'm just worried about all the kids we are going to pick up in the morning for church. I am definitely taking extra blankets........

    Matthew can't put the thermostat on until tomorrow afternoon.......

    My car just had the same problem. Dh replaced the thermostat and it solved the problem. Didn't take him very long to change the part.

    Matthew is putting the thermostat on as we speak ( read: I type) I took blankies this morning for the kids. Only two kids got picked up, lots of kiddo's sick. It is warming to my heart to know they want to go and that it is there parents and us telling them to stay home........

    I am glad you were able to get it fixed so cheap.

    I think you and Matthew are for picking up those children and taking them with you.

    Oh yes, a hubby who is handy is a true blessing. I'm so glad you got the heater working again Roxy.

    Well I guess if you had to have a mechanical problem you chose the right one.....since it was so cheap and easy to fix. Glad you got it going soon. WTG Matt.
