RE: Picture of our foster Fiona( It ithere now!!)

Congrats Barb. This will keep you young and happy. Check out the Old Fella Rally thread for next October and see if it can be placed on your agenda. Hope to get down in your area again sometime to pester you.

RE: Cable driven slideouts mechanism

Bill, I have had an Open Range since May of 2008 and have had no trouble at all with any of our 3 slides. The cable system will take around 200-250 pounds per slide off the weight. Here is the link you can copy and paste. www.norcoind.com/bal/products/oem/accuslide/index.shtml Good luck in your decision on these but more companies are going to them. If folks are getting cutting then one of two reasons for that can be 1) Improper adjustment or 2) The slide was jigged out of square when the framework was put together and welded. This will also cause rubber cutting.

RE: 1/2 ton Eagle HT 5th

I have to chime in with the others. We have had a bumper pull horse trailer and 4 TT. Since then we went to a 5er and are now on the second 5er. About the only way I would go back to a TT is if I was not physically able to do all the steps and would need something on a single level. Good Luck in your choice and which ever enjoy the time camping.

RE: Contoure microwave convection grill oven

Keith, If you can't get anyone who might have one, Google the brand and model number and you might be able to download one from the web. I did that for my computer printer. Lost the book and the manual was 102 pages so I just bookmarked the sight and have the manual at hand. Good Luck in your search.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

The Lincoln Motor Company is very interested in the story behind the 72 Lincoln. Emails have been going back and forth since yesterday and right now there is a possibility of a Television commercial concerning the car and its history with Arnold Palmer and the Augusta Masters Golf Tournament. I don't know where this may lead but for now it is exciting just to imagine seeing the car in a commercial. You are already a celeb. You have one TV appearance with the Lincoln and you have been honored for your actions from September 2005 to date. Take a bow. And tell the furkids we will see them in a few weeks. Did you get the picture we sent to you on the phone?

RE: replacing electric brakes

For Dexter Axles, bearings and grease seals can be had from an autoparts store. At least ours were and were American parts.Bearings i believe were Timken.

RE: Another Towmax victim

Consider LT tires. Michelin owns BFGoodrich and Bridgestone. I had a set of BFG Commercial TA's but was fortunate enough to fall into a set of Michelin XPS. Liked them both. BFG Commercial TA is a cheaper tire than the XPS but was made well and heavy. Good Luck.

RE: Suggestions for a "new" truck for now and future

Since you are already familiar with the Dodge check out the 2500/3500 with the 6.4 gas. Has higher gross weight than the diesel. If you were going to use it just to tow, probably diesel but daily driver gas. I know when it is time to replace my TV I will look hard at another Dodge. Good Luck in your venture and Happy Camping.

RE: Shopping for new Tow Vehicle and Fiver - Doing homework

Mike, there is a post on I think "tow vehicle" on the 6.4 If I get the name right it is IB516. He has went from a diesel to the 6.4 Dodge and seems to like it quite well. You may be able to get some good info from his posts. I think the new Dodge 2500 has coil springs but not sure about the 3500. The only thing I would really check is bed height differential between the 18's and the 20's. Good Luck in your venture. Wish it was me getting the new 6.4 You actually get more payload with the 6.4 over the 6.7 diesel.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Gary, we are so sorry to hear the news about Lily. She is lucky to have had you all these years, and she knows you will take good care of her. The same comes from Lori and I. You have always given Lily quality life as long as you have had her. May God Bless you and Lily that she be as pain free as possible and when the time comes you will be reunited at the Rainbow Bridge.

RE: Wonder where a few of the core member's gravitated to?

AZPops, Besides DOTL Daddy you might look at the Old Fella thread if you want some reading about an old dog.It started in September 2005 and has not stopped making it the longest running thread in the RV.Net history. It has over 2300 posts with over a Million looks. Good story if you have time to read it.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Richard, per our conversation and the gentleman who talked to you, why not see if he would give you a written appraisal to prove worth to the insurance company? Sounded like he should have fairly good credentials. Just a thought.

RE: Wet Bolts

I have a 28ft 2010 Cougar and want to install wet bolts but do not have a proper place or equipment to do so. Has anyone had them installed by an RV shop and how much did it cost? Would I be better of taking it to a truck/trailer shop? I had Dexter Axles and purchased the wet bolt conversion directly from them. they were great to work with. I took the RV to our local truck garage and they put them in for me. I don't think it was over $50 Was worth the switch. The wet bolts come with bronze bushings where the original bushings were a plastic/fiber(?) type material and quickly wore out.

RE: Thoughts on Forest River Sierra Fifth Wheel

I owned 2 Forest River Products. The first was a Cherokee TT. The next was a Sierra 5er. Lets just say I will never own any thing made by Forest River again. Outside of a dealer with no male parts and a factory who would not do anything about a leaking roof while under warranty. Dealer must not have been very good as he is out of business. there have been some folks that have praised Forest River and some that have hated them. I guess you will have to make your own decision on this. What ever you decide, Good Luck.

RE: RAM 2500 - Hemi 6.4 vs Cummins - payload vs towing stability

If you ever think you will what a 5th wheel, then get the 3500 SRW! Chris Chris, I must disagree. I have pulled my 5er over 30,000 miles with a 2500 4x4 Dodge with the 5.7 Hemi. If I would have had the choice I would have opted with gears in the range of 3.90's but mine came with 3.73 gears and they have done all I wanted it to do so far. Everyone has their own opinion and this is just mine. Happy Camping to all.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

The Ohio bunch can celebrate this morning as Ohio State is now National Champions. Dan the SEC is still the big house no matter who just happens to come in the back door. . Well with this years bowl results the Big 10 won the battle over the SEC. So maybe their big house is tumbling. Time will tell. At least we can enjoy the History of being the first National Champions in the College Playoffs. Yes you can and Ohio State deserves the recognition, great year for them. OH- Third National Championship for Meyer. You got to give OSU a lot of credit how they have won the last 3 games with a QB that had only played 2 1/2 games in his career at State. Between him and Zeke they did some serious damage even if OSU had 4 interceptions.

RE: 2WD vs. 4WD

As other folks have said, it may not be needed all the time but I have been to a campgrounds where it had a very steep drive coming out that I put it in 4 wheel low and let it crawl out. I live in Ohio and do drive the truck o0ther than just pulling the trailer and wouldn't be without it. Yes it might cut the weight rating a little but I feel it is worth it. I know when I do get another one it will be a 4x4 and crew cab but that is just my preference. You need to take the info and decide what your preference is and go from there. Some of the new eco boost motors in the 1/2 tons have a good torque rating and horsepower. Just make sure it is spec'ed with the tow package and it fits your situation. Good Luck looking and Happy Camping.

Richard, Lori said that if you can't figure the printer out that you can paste the pages together and then get a bigger Bible. OR there is always time to ask your bride.:B Dan and Patty, Thought you were going to stay south until it warmed up. If not Welcome Home to the sweaty -25 weather.
