RE: Home dump station

As someone posted above, We had it done when we installed the sewer and drain fields. Never had a problem YET. Shoot, we planted a flower bed around and over the septic tank.

RE: New Base Plate.

I am not much on thinking lately, too many years on this old thinker. I didn't even think of selling the whole bundle to someone who was looking for a toad. Thanks for waking me up.

New Base Plate.

Over the last ten years, We have had several Toads. Each time We traded, I would just leave the base Plate on the old toad, never thinking that I should remove it. DUH ME. A couple of months I traded a 2010 Saturn Aura for a new Dodge Ram Big Horn. When I went to pick up the new Truck, they informed me they had removed the Baseplate and put it in the truck bed. I was supprised and about all Isaid was thanks. Has anyone ever traded in an old base plate in on a new one for different vehicle? I plan to contact Blue OX but as I am here surfing around I tought why ot post here and see if anyone has done it. Thanks for any feedback you can offer. Moved to Dinghy Towing forum from Towing.

RE: frozen water pump

The temp gets low around here sometimes. I Use one of those drop cord lights with a 60 watt bulb that Mechanics hang on the open hood when working. I put it in the Bay where the Water pump is located. I havent checked it lately but it worked last year. If you have such a thing, you might try putting it in there and see. Hope your's will be OK. Good Luck.

RE: New Dodge Tow Vehicle

Years ago, I had little red truck. I drove it for 25 years. DW was always on My donkey to get rid of it. I wouldn't until one day, while trying to convince me to get rid of it, she put her foot down. It went through the rusty floor board and she could see the road beneath the truck whizzing by. I parked the truck out behind the barn and went and bought a new truck. (The little red truck is still behing the Barn)

RE: the best roast ever

Wood glue, you sound like a good O'L wood worker. I was and still diddle around with wood working. My last employment before I retired was Building Wood seat boards, Footboards Risers and other boards for Gym Bleachers. That is all I did was the wood part of the operation. A few years before I retired I made all the boards in the Duke NC, Gym. Took me about three months but It was done on time. The Company did a lot of work in 1bout 15 states. I loved it. OH, I had my own shop as well.

Towing 2013 Dodge Ram big horn

I have a new 2013 Dodge Ram big horn, it is four wheel drive. I have instructions in handbook which I have read. I am pretty sure I understand them but am still a little shakey. If any one has experience with this truck, I would really appreciate any additional data from anyone who knows first hand. Thanks.

RE: Vampire Repellant?

The Ice Hole works equally as well with Polar Bears. I was in the Navy for 20 plus years and once when we were thousands of miles from no where, we had a terrible infestation of Vampire pirates. The CO was a wise old seaman and had dealt with this before, He ordered all the engine room crew, (Snipes) to hang their socks on the port yardarm. Worked like a charm, the only hitch was the deck apes. They wanted to put their socks on the Starboard Yard arm. The poor old Signalman had no other choices other than just hanging it over the fan tail, (Stern).

RE: New Ram 1500

Hey, I got one of those almost about a week ago. It doesn't have all the lights mentioned but I like it. I traded a 2009 saturn Aura for it. I had the dealer remove all the towing stuff from the Saturn and have it laying here in the garage. I can use the SMI airforce one braking system but the rest I will have to sell somewhere. I was looking at a Ford but this beats the ford all the way.

RE: Auto steps repaired

This last spring I got the Step Motor Dorman 742-277 at local auto parts store for $71.68 including tax. My 74 year old body made the change out with no problem. I also washed my roof with a power washer for O cost. Both were right price for my wallet. :) That sounds like what I wanted to do but, I am recovering from lower back surgery and am not supposed to put any strain on it for a while. I can tell you one thing though, that back surgery has made me feel so good I dern near asked DW to go out dancing. But I was afraid she would ask me who she was supposed to go with. HAHA. I do feel like I will be able to do a lot of stuff I have been putting off.

RE: Auto steps repaired

Great to hear of your remedy….I was in the same boat earlier this year and ended up spending an hour or so under the RV to replace my steps. Story also brought a smile to my face as Seneca is my home town - drop by Time Drive Inn and have a jumbo cheeseburger for me! The Burgers are great there. Only thing I have ever ordered there that was not up to par was their Steak Fingers. Not too good.

RE: Tips when Fueling at truck stops

As mentioned several times here, the access and maneuvering always gives me the jitters. I have been in some tight places with our 40' Revolution and have never been able to head off the jitters. I suppose it goes back to our first Motor home, a class "C" Jayco Granite Ridge. It was two years old and it was the first time I had drove a RV. I was not offered any instructions by the dealer and was dumb enough to not ask. On the way home, a 50 mile trip, I decided I needed fuel. I pulled into a gas station and the only lane open was the inside lane. I went for it and was looking at the rear end of the RV and it was swinging in dangeriously close to the pump. I stopped, backed and tried again. I was still too close for comfort. The third try, I backed way back and went straight in. After accessing the damage to the driver's side seat, I almost drove back to the dealer to ask for a refund on repairs to the seat. I have had a case of jitters since. You should see the entrance to our drive way at home. Off a narrow country road I have to make a left turn onto our driveway. the turn is on a steep hill with a 30' gully/ravine on the passenger's side. The drive requires a slight "V" shape with one leg slanting slightly back to the left. It gets hairy at times. Grandson will not ride with me, he gets out until I am straightened out. There is still 3/4 mile to our parking beside the Brick and stick Home.DW gets edgy as she says she can look down into the ravine from her side. I would never try it in bad weather or in the dark.

Auto steps repaired

Not long ago I had several posts concerning the steps on our RV. I tried just about all the recomended cures such as hitting the motor with a, "bigger," hammer and such. The hammer hits were the most effective but the last time I used the hammer, I must have whacked it once too many times. I took it to Twin Lakes Auto/body shop, Seneca, SC. They replaced the step motor, repaired the front door screen, replaced the screen door latch and washed the RV top. In my opinion, the charges were the right size for my wallet, $300. They have done work on the RV several times and once on our Toad. OH, At first I did plan to doing this my self, as one answer to my post suggested but changed my mind when I priced he motor at a local Auto parts store at $150+ tax. I started looking at what the strain on my back would be laying there under the RV. Also these 74 year old joints and imagining the aches and pains then decided to have it done at Twin Lakes.
