    Just wondering if anyone has calculated the per hour direct operating cost on a late model 280 Sundancer.
    Also how much to repower the engine with a factory overhaul or reman.

    2001 DA280. Just changed the windshield wiper with a Trico HD 63-180 from ORielly Auto for $10.

    Matched up perfectly.

    Just in case anyone was about to do this.

    In a different thread you mentioned replacing the balls in the door track. Just curious how you removed the door to gain access to the track.

    This is what I just posted in the other thread:
    I am not complete yet. What I have done so far is remove the fasteners along the bottom of the door holding the lower track to the door. I slid the door about half open. I then put a block under the door to lift it about a quarter inch. Then I pulled the track, minus the door to the closed position then removed the screw in the track holding the plastic butt end in place. The ball came out with a little encouragement. I repeated the process for the other side.

    I hope when the new balls arrive next week, I can push new balls back in, re-install the plastic end butt plates, and re-fasten the door to the track.

    What could possibly be any easier! ;)
