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

We lost our Quincy last night Her heart gave out. http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28854198/gotomsg/28861782/p/1.cfm#28861782 Jon and Loretta So sorry to read this. Just know that there a lot of pets at the Rainbow Bridge waiting to welcome Quincy who will be all happy and whole again. Would be great if you could work it out to come to Sieverville Tn. in October.

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

I just got word this morning from a good source that the Burke County Commissioners have just put $500,000 from in a fund for animal rescue and animal control. Way to go Old Fella. Congrats to the rescue effort for getting the $500,000. Kudos to the Burke County Commissioners for finally coming to the plate and going through with what was passed by voters years ago. It is a shame it took so long for them to do what was right.

RE: Electric Breaks and the law

I live in Massachusetts and just bought a used trailer.The weight of the travel trailer is 1600 pounds.I do have electric breaks but the suv I'll be towing them with doesn't have the setup for them. My question is I brought the trailer into a dealer to go through it.He said if you have electric breaks on camper they must be hooked up and you must also have a battery backup or you will get pulled over and ticketed. Looking at mass law they say a trailer is required to have electric breaks if it's over 3000 pounds my trailer isn't even close to that So who's right do I have to get them hooked up like dealer says? This trailer, Scamp 13' trailer is 1500 pounds. Compare its size to yours. Check your states trailer laws to know for sure. I am in Ohio and no brakes are needed if under 3000# http://www.scamptrailers.com/images/igallery/resized/601-700/20160219_094824_clipped_rev_2-633-672-414-80.png width=640

RE: Carrier AC blowing breaker

I have a Carrier 5 AC unit that is about 7 years old. It has started blowing the 20 Amp circuit breaker after it runs for maybe 5 to 10 minutes. Any suggestions on what I may want to look at before replacing the unit. Thanks Rough, If you do end up having to replace the unit, please contact me. I need the blower squirrel cage fan. It is hooked to the motor by a 1/2" shaft About 3 3/8" deep and 8 3/8 diameter. I have been searching for one as mine is cracked and has been given a temp fix. On the parts diagram it is listed #12-Blower Wheel Assy. If anyone else has any good source to get one please let me know. I have called quite a few places that do work and they have no parts or junked units.

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

Have a great trip, Richard. I'm taking the dogs this weekend down to Delaware for camping in the motorhome. This is Hannah's first trip. I took them for a ride for a half hour this morning. Shadow, as usual, stayed quiet on the couch, but Hannah didn't seem interested in the couch and alternated between whining and laying on the floor. I have a soft-sided crate (XL size) in the RV that Hannah can fit in, although it is a little small for a dog of her size, and she doesn't like it. I used it for the short trip to block access to the driver's seat (and me, who she would surely try to jump on). I left it open, but she didn't go in. Although I can get her inside, she won't lay still. She can turn around inside the crate. Hannah is about 74 pounds, but I can't fit a giant crate into the RV. Lily used to lay in the crate or on the couch, Dash stayed on the couch, Molly liked the crate or laid under the dinette. She was about the same weight as Hannah, maybe a tad shorter. The trip to Delaware will take about 2 1 /2 hours. Should I just leave her loose and hope she will settle down, or should I crate her, even if she isn't very comfortable, and may try to get out? If it is not too much of a distraction, I think I would try leaving her out. She may get used to it and go lay down somewhere. Have a safe trip and enjoy.

RE: Anyone towing a fifth wheel with Dodge 2500 6.4 Hemi 4x4?

I had towed my Open Range 337RLS for over 6 years with a 2005 Dodge 2500 4x4 with the 5.7 Hemi and 3.73 gears with no trouble. It took me where ever we wanted to go. Probably towed close to 40000 miles. The Dodge was getting some mileage on it and I had the chance to get a great deal on a used '14 Chevy crew cab with the 6.0 and 4.10 gears so I traded. Every now and again I see the Dodge around still going strong. I know this does not say anything for the 6.4 but if I could do it with the 5.7 the 6.4 should be even better. I had looked at the Dodge with the 6.4 but couldn't get a great deal. Good Luck and Happy Camping.

RE: Pin Box vs. Truck Bed Wall: How to Avoid Conflict?

Russ, The newer trucks seem to have higher bedrails. I used to use a 2005 Dodge and had no problems at all. Got a 2014 Chevy dually and had problems. What I did was drop the pinbox 1 hole and had to trim the back corners off of the pinbox mount. Going to try this. Have a friend that had same problem and had to change pin boxes as he did get into the rail. Hope this will answer part of your question. Good Luck in the venture.

RE: Don't be this person--PIC

I too was a truck driver for 13 years before going to the other side- Police officer- and an RVer so what gets me is when you pull into a Cracker Barrel and all the spaces reserved for trucks, buses and RV's are parked full of cars. Kinda makes you think about pulling in behind them set the brakes and and go in and enjoy dinner. :B

Jordan shot himself in the foot with those 2 bad holes. Oh Well, there is always next year. We started out in the low 30's and now it is 48.

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

Dixie flyer, we must live fairly close to you. We are in Simppsonville, close to the Spartanburg line. You sure are a darling, taking in Mama and Hobo. Love you for that bit of kindness. Richard, You need to ask Ro_sie if you can transfer your neon "Pets Welcome" sign from your roof to hers. Just a hop away.

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

Good Afternoon, We faired better than ToolGuy as we only had less than an inch stick. It is quite cold with wind chill of 17. Our one network TV station just posted this was the worst April snow in 50 years with them getting 7.8" and possible around the lake could 1-2" more. TV Station is in Toledo about 50 miles north of us. Sure feels strange to have mowed the lawn and now get out the snow shovel. Hope you all have a safe weekend.

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

I hope you are having better weather than they are predicting for us here. We have been having rain yesterday with sleet. Today has been overcast and they are predicting anywhere from 2"-5" and Thunder Snow which I believe I have only seen once. I was enroute to Joliet, Ill from Indiana and on the interstate when lightening, thunder and snow that you could not see through.Little bit exciting with a tanker full of combustible liquid. On another note, this is crazy, have mowed the lawn and wondering if we have to get the snow shovel back out The furkids are doing well and daughter Jenni is still having some problems but has started to drive short distances without too much problem. Hope all have a very safe weekend. Looking forward to maybe sometime in the future we can get the 5er out and maybe take some couple day trips. Welcome to the forums Ro_sie and Art. This is just a big family of furkid lovers.

RE: LT tires

For what it is worth Michelin owns BFG and Bridgestone and all 3 have LT tires. I am running Michelin XPS ribs. You will find them to be a physically heavy tire.

RE: goodyear tires

Mike, When I got rid of my off brand tires I went with BFG Commercial TA's which I was quite happy with. I noticed on the thread that they had a recall on them so I went to the tire shop. They called Michelin (makers of the BFG and also Bridgestone) to verify the recall. Since they did not have any of the size in stock Michelin told them to go ahead and put on a set of Michelin XPS. Both are LT tires. I was thrilled as the XPS were a little over $1300 and it was an even trade. From my experience I would definitely recommend the Michelin and I would not be afraid to put on another set of the BFG Commercial TA. I can't speak for the Bridgestone line as I have had no experience with them. Good Luck in whichever tire you finally decide upon and Happy Camping

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

Kevin, For what it is worth, we have used Joint Max Triple Strength on Sarah and Anna for quite a while and it really seems to help. We get the product from http://www.entirelypets.com/jointmaxts3.html They ship really quick.

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

Welcome Kevin and Marissa, You will become obsessed in the reading. The DW and I are the proud servants of one of the first pups that Richard and Sue rescued. We have Anna. Richard has Susie and there were 2 more. A few years back we were blessed with another one of the rescues. This one named Sarah is a yellow lab who had been hit by a motor vehicle and left along the road for dead. They get along excellent. As Richard said please know you and your wife and furkids will be welcome to come to Seiverville, Tn in October for the get together rally of the Friends of Old Fella. We have some folks from close to Houston That have come to quite a few of the Rallys This year we have booked 2 weeks. Rally starts on Wednesday of the first week but some of us come in early and stay late. :B Sue, Wishing you the best in the possible venture that may be upcoming. Let us know what comes up and how it is going.

RE: How do I reach my Firefox browser

Just FYI the latest Firefox is 45.1.0 Cant you just open the start menu showing a typed entry of the program and try that. You should be able to upgrade and not lose your Bookmarks. Good Luck
