We are going to be taking out the old stove. We want to go to the flat top, and then the oven under it.

Where do you think is a great place to find a deal? I have looked all over, and man there not cheap

We just bought one not too long ago from Menards. One of the better deals we could find.

I have found that Menard's,Lowe's, Home Depot are as cheap as anybody usually for appliances. One thing to think about, the more $ you spend on the appliance, the more money it will cost to fix. And it will break. It's sad, but the quality of any new appliance is not very high. Instead of 20+ years the old ones would last, >10 is the average life of appliances now.

It's sad isn't it. Stuff has to be made over seas just to make it affordable.

Could check out Appliancesmart. We got a really good deal on a fridge/stove/dishwasher package there right around Christmas time.

I got a smokin deal on a fridge and stove combo at Best Buy when I bought my house. Never pay full price though. You can always bargain down on appliances, and if done right you can get free delivery and recycling of the old stuff. My stove and fridge combo full price would have been over 1,400 bucks, I paid 800 with delivery and recycling of the old stuff. You are a salesman, work some numbers on em.

I bought a flat top stove from a Big Box store a few years ago, and right after the warranty went off one of the burners went out. $90 extra spent. I have since bought my appliances from my Local smalltown appliance store. The guy there used to work at an appliance Mfg. plant, and he said that when the assembly line is first starting up and they're working out the tolerances on everything, those first ones off the line are the ones that go cheap to the Big stores for a cheaper price. The money you save up front may actually cost more in the end due to cheaper quality from the Big stores. Buy locally where you'll get good service if there are problems.

I bought my gas stove at Best Buy after looking at every other place. They ended up having the best price and the cheapest delivery and set up fees. Gas stoves are more expensive to set up then electric obviously.

ApplianceSmart didn't even offer a set up service. You had to go through some independent guy who charges a ton for it. How can an appliance store sell you a stove without offering some sort of set up on it?

I was able to get the guy at Best Buy to come down a little on the stove so its always worth working that angle. Make sure they know you are willing to walk away.

While you might get a better deal out front at the big stores. Your local appliance dealer will give much better service. Warranty issues and such. My wife busted the the top of our stove and our dealer warrantied it under a stress crack would have been 600-700 for a new top. While this was going on my sister in law purchased new appliance from a big chain and her dishwasher didnt work from the start, six months later it was finally fixed.

    • For many years my dad, uncles, etc have been heading to the Leech Lake area every spring and fall to fish for walleyes. There are usually 8-10 guys that go. Many of them are from the Barron, Wisconsin area. Since I've never really fished in Wisconsin, thought it might be fun to head to there one of these trips. Have always heard the Hayward area is pristine. Does anyone have a favorite lake, or possibly a favorite resort in the area I should add to the list when doing some research?  Walleyes are thing these guys are after.   I know there is a Wisconsin form, but it seems kind of quiet over there, so I'm hoping to get some opinions here.    
    • Well except for the owner. He's kinda ancient!!   We did the same thing with the frig to Dave on the first camper we had.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new! 
    •   Well I never!!!    Caught one that nice!
    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
