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

According to the Weather Channel rain should be over Sunday. Lexington,Knoxville, and Sevierville all show no rain above 20% with temps in the middle 70's and no rain for the rest of the week. We are still planning on leaving early Sunday morning and going as far as Renfro Valley, Ky on Sunday. You all be careful and drive safely.

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

According to the weather forecast, Weather for Sevierville for next week is mid 70's during the day and upper 50's at night and I don't think any rain after Monday. Hopefully I am not fibbing. I checked the weather on Google.

RE: Old Fella Rally October 5-12 2015 Great Smoky Mountains

This is the 10th Anniversary of Old Fella. What a landmark event. Sure has brought a lot of folks from around the country together in 1 cause. We will be leaving next Sunday heading to Sevierville. Looking forward to seeing all again. Drive safe.

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

I have traveled to the workshop and have been working on the door prizes, took a break to have lunch with Jenni and Margaret, and have now traveled into the living room to watch hopefully stomp Western Michigan. After the game I will be motoring back out to the shop. Going to be busy until next Sunday morning early when we leave for Sevierville. Hope all have a good rest of the weekend and a good week and a safe trip to the Rally.

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

For at least a week and a half Sue and I have been taking turns trying to put a light bulb in the hood for the stove. Sue got the burned out bulb out of the socket, but neither of us can get a new bulb into the socket. The bulb mounts flush with the hood so you don't have any leverage to turn the bulb, and I believe the socket is too far up inside the hood so that the bulb doesn't reach the socket. So I guess we will have to call someone who has experience with this type of hood too install the bulb. Richard, for the hood light, try using a small suction cup on the end of the light bulb. Hold on to the suction cup and put the bulb in place and screw it in. This should assist as you say you have no room to get a grip. Reference Peaches not wanting to take pill: we will put a shot of aerosol cheese on the pill and they seem to take it that way. Good Luck

RE: Battery charging from shore power?

Bluebeard, I think the simple answer to this is YES to both. On shore power your converter/inverter will charge the battery and when hooked to the tow vehicle will also charge the battery if you have the hot line on the tow vehicle hooked. Some vehicles come with plug already wired and you might have to put a fuse in the fuse panel.

RE: Stops along the way from Fla to Michigan

Great !! Thnx. Anyone go to the Kentucky Horse Farm? Nearby CG? How 'bout Creation Museum? Kentucky Horse Park has its own campground. Have stayed there. Nice although you only have electric and water hookups. Easy access to nice dump stations. Also easy access to the park. If you camp in the campground you can get discount to the park. Will take a while to walk around the park.

RE: Open Range VS Montana

Montana's and OR are both good units. We have the 162nd Open Range made. It is a 2009 purchased new in May of 2008. Had some small glitches at first but overall we really love the unit. I will say that the factory folks are excellent. FYI Jayco bought Open Range. The company is called Highland Ridge dba Open Range. It is still a stand alone company. Over the weekend at Good Sam Rally we looked at a new Open Range 388RKS with triple insulation. What a rig. It has the rear kitchen and almost 40' long. Also Open range has a 2 year bumper to bumper warranty. Would I buy another one..Absolutely. Good Luck in your search.Open Range is now in the 19000 unit.

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

I found out today that surgery has been approved on right knee. So we are going to try to get it scheduled after returning from Tennessee. Going to get a shot of cortisone in next week. Best of luck. :) I go in for replacement knee surgery on Monday :( Good Luck to you also. This will be my second. First one done 2007 and no problems, L Hip 2009. If this is your first, definately go to PT as long as the insurance will allow.

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

So I am an old relic? So are you saying you are Sue's treasure or Sue's trash? I guess that would depend on the final $$$ from the 73. :B:B I found out today that surgery has been approved on right knee. So we are going to try to get it scheduled after returning from Tennessee. Going to get a shot of cortisone in next week. Everybody around here are getting excited about the upcoming venture to Seiverville and getting to see more friends again.

RE: Raising 5'er for Ram 2500

If I remember right, IB540(?) had a new Ram. They do set high in the back but when he hooked to the 5er it lowered the back of the truck to level and still had clearance between rails and the trailer. Just FYI. Good Luck on hour choice of fixes.

RE: Old Fella Rally October 5-12 2015 Great Smoky Mountains

Only 22 days until we leave to go to the Old Fella Rally. Better start thinking about getting things together.

RE: To flip or not to flip

If it's a bumper pull, why not get a shank with a longer drop? Then you can get the trailer level without messing with it. Why don't you take the easy way out? Just drop the ball height and trailer will set level.

RE: DIY RV Macerator Pump

For my macerator I have swimming pool hose. I believe it is 1" ID. Anytime I have used it I had no problems. Good Luck

RE: Gas light on refer blinking

Check the lines for obstruction in the refer gas line in refer compartment. Sometimes a bug can make a home and goof things up.

RE: Open Range?

I'm new to RVing. I'm a catastrophic insurance adjuster and have to travel around alot and I'm completely tired of living in hotels. :) Towing shouldn't be an issue as I drive a 2500HD Silverado with the Duramax that is rated at almost 18,000 towing gooseneck/5er. I'm trying to find something that is four seasons that I can full time in but won't break the bank. I've got a $20 to $25K budget and have been looking at all the different classified sites. I'm really like the Open Range, specifically the 385RLS, and have found a really good deal on it. I'm hoping you guys have some input as to how these trailers hold up. I've heard they're not as good as Montana's, but they're also less expensive. I just want to make sure I'm not buying a lemon. Any ideas on the Open Range or suggestions of brands to look into? EDIT: 2013 Duramax Diesel 2500HD Tires rated just over 3,100# Cargo rated approx. 3,100# Rear axle rated over 6,200# We are on our 7th year with ours. Granted, we had a few problems but it was also the 162nd unit they built. I don't know if you would find any factory reps nicer to work with then those at OR. FYI OR has been bought by Jayco but remains a stand alone company called Highland Ridge home of Open Range. Randy Graber the one who started Open Range is still there. All I can say is that we would not hesitate to purchase another one. Good Luck and Happy Camping. Ours is about 34 feet and triple slide and MTY weight was 8600. You lose quite a bit of weight because of the cable system and not the hydraulic or gear driven slides.

RE: Tire Recall - Just Passing this Along

I just lost two BFG Commercial TA's in 16 inch for belt separation. I'm just waiting for them to mention my size and I will be calling BFG. One tire I caught before it blew, when I was making a left turn I just happened to spy the tire wobbling a bit, not normal...When I got to the campground I jacked it up and spun it and wow, you could see the underlying belt starting to separate. The second tire blew to smithereens at 65 mph fortunately there was an extra wide shoulder and quickly pulled over before any major damage. These tire were 4-5 years old, always covered and 303'd. 90 percent of tread left. Ron W. Ron, The 16" BFG Commercial TA have already been recalled. Check with Michelin about your build year etc. They replaced mine with XPS Michelin which were almost $650 more that the TA's. They were going to put on a different BFG but I wanted a conventional tread tire. Good Luck
