RE: New kid on the block

Finished CH, dumped when he was no longer a cash cow. The guy I got him from had him a couple of years and his life circumstances changed....Forgot to mention, back when he was making $$ for someone, Glad you got your health problems figured out and that you rescued a dog. I do take offense that because a dog has achieved a title of CH. that you refer to him as a cash cow and dumped because of that. And then in the same sentence you state that the owners life circumstances had changed which is the reason why he had to surrender his dog to rescue. Which he should be commended for not bashed. The dog is 11 years old and obviously since this owner has only had him 2 years he is the second owner and had absolutely nothing to do with breeding/showing this dog. And that you would have no knowledge of so-called the dog "making money for someone" simply because the dog has a title. Just find this rhetoric of bashing others that show their dogs truly unnecessary.:( I have 4 CH's sitting right here. I am VERY proud of our accomplishments and they are NOT as your refer to cash cows.

RE: tow a mini?

Can i flat tow a mini cooper with manual transmission Look in the owners manual under 'recreational towing'. It will tell you right there whether that car can be towed 4 down or requires a dolly.

RE: An Interesting Prevost

I wasn't at all impressed. Too much money for something 25 years old, interior as well as exterior looked very dated. Sorry..... X2 Baring the cherry wood cabinets, mine had solid oak, it has the exact same layout and shower my first 31 ft Class C had!! :B

RE: The dealers do not have crystal balls.

The dealer’s job is to show and sell you the product you want. He assumes you know or have a reasonable knowledge of your desired purchase and is not going to grill you with a bunch of questions. As always it is up to the buyer to understand how he is going to use what he buys. Unfortunately the new comer often lacks the knowledge of all the variable involved in selecting a good TT and TV combination. That's all fine and good. BUT it's not the saleman that doesn't grill the customer its the saleman that INSISTS your TV will tow what ever he is showing you. IMHO THOSE salesman should be fired on the spot. Because those are the setups you see everyday pulling into CG's and driving along side you down the interstate. I am a 'seasoned RV'er'. I also know what my TV can tow and what it can not tow. Yet, when I went to look at new TT's the salesman would show me a TT and TELL me that my TV COULD tow it. When I know it most definitely could not. I told him the weight and length I wanted yet we'd drive across the lot to show me yet another one too heavy and too long. Saying 'your TV can tow this one'.:R So I can fully see why beginners are sold too much TT for their TV's. Again salesmen that tell anyone they KNOW your TV can tow one of their TT's should be reported and fired. Just wish we could get that info 'not to listen to a salesman' when purchasing their first TT out to all beginner RV'ers. Just saying.

RE: Dumb, Dumb Dumb

We used to always have a boiled cows tongue in the fridge growing up. It was as close as we got to cold cuts. After school we would cut off a slice and make a sandwich. Yup, cows tongue also was sold in the deli in cold cut form too. It was called tongue sausage. Brought up on it too when I was a kid! I actually liked it specially the jellied part made for great sandwiches .:C Don't see the cold cut form in deli's anymore. A couple of years ago I saw the whole fresh tongue for sale in a specialty grocery store. So I bought it! You make a fresh tongue the same way you would make corned beef. How ever you make corned beef in your family just substitute the tongue. It does tasted very good cooked this way. P.S. you do have to take the skin off of it before you eat it, if that is the way it was sold. http://vietworldkitchen.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2007/07/15/beef_tong.jpg :B

RE: Contacting the owners of this forum

Any email contact regarding GS is NOT the owner of this forum. Awhile back a moderator went postal threatening forum members and I looked for a link to contact the webmaster/owner.........it DOES NOT exist. There is NO way you can contact a human being And I am quite sure they intend to keep it that way.

RE: Storage Bins, Rubbermaid, etc.

I'll just add to make sure you look UNDER the handles where it clips on to the bottom on whatever plastic tubs you decide to buy! I did not.:( I had 2 storage tubs that where in the aisle when traveling and placed outside when parked for more than the night. All went well traveling up North THEN I came South. And found bugs inside the tubs. That then got into my RV. What I found is On some plastic tubs there are holes drilled into the tub under the handle on the bottom part of the tub. :S The southern bugs just walked right inside my tubs thru the holes in under the handles.

RE: air conditioning

I have a 2001 bounder. In places where it might hit 100 degrees the air brings the inside temp to about 77-80. Am curious if anyone has ever bought a tower air conditioner and placed it between captains chairs. Almost every rv park has a 110 on the post which could be used without the 30 or 50 amp going into the coach. Any ideas? thanks You will have to run the cord out thru a window to get to the shore power. Which will let even more heat in. Also, Trust me CG owners will see the cord from window and ask you to disconnect it. Covering roof vents with vent pillows, lowering awning and covering windshield and side windows on side of sun makes a big difference. When I am in Florida I run a small de-humidifier inside the coach. Makes a BIG difference on helping the ac and the temp inside the coach was much cooler almost immediately.

RE: In the process of becoming a full-timer

... Do not get talked into using a P.O. Box as your address. Some folks on this forum have run into problems when trying to do this and use it as an official address... X2 Because of the ID act, Patriot Act, etc., you name it. Credit cards, insurance, DVM, etc, etc, will NOT accept a PO Box as an address because the gov now thinks you might be trying to hide something. :R I used to live rurally where all we had was a PO Box in town. After 911 I had nothing but problems and headaches regarding everything.

RE: Rant - looking for a travel trailer

Anyone else tired of the trolling? :S Other than rock star Prevosts they do NOT make a '5 bedroom' RV. :R From these responses to EACH and EVERY reply I'd say this OP doesn't want to or shouldn't be camping/RV'ing. And has sucked everyone into 12 pages of suggestions where he dismisses every single one. .....I wouldn't be trying to fool anyone. But I also don't want to disconnect the vehicle and the camper and have a pop up or hybrid all set up. .....I have to tear down and set up every day... Also, as kids get older, they generally don't want to share beds... ......And then I am stuck with a vehicle that gets really lousy gas mileage and is too big 75% of the year. .....want 3-4 individual beds for the kids, .....gain, the first response should not be "To buy this additional product, you need to change your tow vehicle". .....But the suggestion that I change my tow vehicle is not a welcome one. Realistically, it isn't worth it to me. Period. http://i39.tinypic.com/2isz244.gif

RE: question? can you get shocked from 12volt?

Can 12 volt power shock? Start the engine. Reach under the hood, and grab the coil wire. Come back and tell me what you felt. IF you can still type. Well yes I did, on a 1970 460 CI Lincoln. Couldn't move my arm for a whole day after. That's not 12 volts, the coil puts out 30,000 +,- volts. X2 Yup it's 12 volt battery in your car but it's amplified for sure depending what you touch when it's running! I did the same thing years ago and it knocked me against the garage wall, thank god it didn't hang on to me! Compliments from my 455 SD Pontiac! :C

RE: Vintage Airstream Stolen!

DD had a friend who had a trailer stolen a few years ago. About 6 months later, the trailer was recovered. The thieves had actually spent about $6,000 or so improving it. They had installed better lights, an air conditioner, re-did the floors. It was in much better shape when recovered than when stolen. What were the coordinates where it was parked when stolen? I want to park my RV there! :B

RE: Rant - looking for a travel trailer

Almost all of them have a dinette and couch that turns into beds. And then a regular bed in the bedroom. That would put 2 kids in each and the 2 adults in the bedroom. What's wrong with that set up for you?

RE: OTA Experts Please Help

I just found out there is a button within the menu for uhf and vhf to turn them on for scanning channels. I also found out that one of the cheap flat screens I just bought is not even capable to search for UHF only VHF. :R

RE: Dog, as in Calvin, to get / sleep on the sofa?

When you are old and have top seniority in the MH.....you sleep any dang place you want to. :C http://i59.tinypic.com/2nb56v7.jpg And of course the couch is not soft enough, you have to have a bed on top of the couch to suit your needs. Gotta love the old timers!

RE: In the process of becoming a full-timer

Florida is our current state and our proposed domicile state. Use a UPS STORE for your address. NOT UPS. UPS Store. https://www.theupsstore.com/Pages/index.aspx Pay a yearly fee no club to join and have your mail sent there. They give you a 'real address' so it will be accepted by all the things you need a real address for. And they will forward your mail where ever you want them to as you travel. Once you have established that address for insurance etc. the FL DMV will accept the address for your license. They are a franchise and they are in almost every city. There is one in the Villages in Florida off 441.

RE: Anyone have a wife who overpacks motorhome?

I had that problem with relatives traveling on trips. When the relatives started bringing piles and piles of stuff I would make them weigh it. Whatever their stuff weighed meant that amount of weight had to come 'out' of the MH 'before' any more of their stuff came in. Caused a few arguments between them over who's stuff was more important. But I was not part of the equation they had to figure it out themselves and I had a clutter free MH. And my coach was not overweight with a bunch of unnecessary stuff. you took relatives? Why do you think I made them weigh their stuff?! :W After a few times of that they stopped asking to go with! :B One of them is not allowed to be in the same county as my MH after she repeatedly kept putting her satchel bag up against the side of the bed where the converter was.....and finally started a fire when it over heated and the breaker didn't blow all the way :R That sign on the converter door that says "do not block can cause a fire hazard"? Is right on the money.

RE: How did you begin this hobby?

My darling wife led me down the "camping" road. When we were dating in 1972, her mother allowed me to accompany them on the first trip of the year. My wife's mother was an avid camper and camped most weekends when the weather would allow. We went to a local state park, in a truck camper, and proceeded to set up. It was the very first trip of the year and the camper had been in storage all winter. My future mother in law started the refrigerator on propane. A bird's nest in the flue caught the camper on fire! Not a great introduction to the world of camping. The camper was ruined and no camping took place that weekend. A year later, we married, and with the very last of our wedding cash, bought a tent, and some supplies for camping. As is the case with many camping couples, we “upgraded” as time went on. We had a series of tents, a truck camper, a pop up camper, and four different travel trailers during our working life. Each unit was a little bigger and more complex. So I started camping to be close to my wife. After 42 years of marriage, I still want to close to her. We now full time. Kudos! It's stories like this that still gives me hope the world is going to be ok. :C
