    Right part - right price

    Posted by Robert on 22nd Jul 2020

    Found these heaters on line $40 cheaper than my local parts house price. They did not have them in stock anyway. Thrifty had them sent them the same day arrive on time. Will be checking back here when something is needed around my house, and friends houses.
