In the end its a forum and there will always be disagreements. The OP loves his bus. Im the same with my old bus. I have spent with way too much that i will never get back. I know what's wrong with it and what has been fixed. Sounds like the OP would rather have the devil he knows than the devil he doesn't. A wise man would probably not throw away good money after bad. But for some if us it comes down to attachment, rather than being money smart about a vehicle.
