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

It was pretty nice here today but this evening is questionable. Possible very heavy rains and winds and could get up to 4" of rain if it doesn't go around us. Keeping fingers crossed. Richard, Anna and Sarah are looking forward to seeing you and Sue as are we. I will bet with you via phone and try to explain where I want you to give us a call from so we can meet you and lead you in.

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

Problem solved, all systems go.:B Bright daylight revealed a better view of the rear tires and they are okay. Dan see you and Lori as planned. If you wanted to see the inside tires dates, couldn't you put the rear jacks down and raise the chassis making it easier to slide in?

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

Richard, We feed Sarah Purina Dog Chow 1/3 cup twice a day mixed with a soup spoon of canned and blended with warm water. We do this morning and evening. Anna gets 1/3 cup of Royal Canin SO (UTI) Urinary Tract Infection also blended with a soup spoon of the canned blended with warm water, also two times a day. The Royal Canin is due to her Bladder Stones years back. Both dogs seem to be healthy and happy. They also get treat bones. We were also in the 90's yesterday and close to 80 today but not as humid. Looking forward to seeing you and Sue in a couple of weeks.

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

Richard, I have seen quite a few rigs with a long mud flap under the rear end of the coach. Sort of the same as what you had on the pickup for the 5er.Don't have to worry about unhooking it as it just stays on the coach.So glad you found towing the car no big deal.

RE: Landing Gear won't raise or lower.

Thanks for all the help. It was the pin through the telescoping rod on the driver side. I kept looking for the problem on the passenger side that wasn't working. Appreciate it. If your motor is on the street side of the rig then your street side leg will run off the gear reduction. With a sheared pin that will not let the curb side to operate. Glad you found the sheared pin.Just got through putting in new motor and gearbox. (wasn't the motor but I had ordered all parts to be covered.)

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

We had a wonderful afternoon with Dan and Patty. Patty was feeling good. We met in the middle and had lunch, had a really nice3 talk session then went and got ice cream and jabbered some more. It was nice that it was a little cool because up around the lake the Mayflies were not around. It didn't get much over 64 today but very pretty out.Hope you all have a good rest of the week and don't forget to pet the fur kids.

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

2 years ago today Pickles found us on the Internet and came to live with us. She came all the way from Chicago via (Liberty train) volunteers transporting from Chicago to Connecticut. We volunteered to take one leg approximately 60 miles. We had a total of 5 dogs that day. The other 4 we handed off in Hudson to go to Connecticut where they were adopted. Of course Pickles remained with us where she is now the little Princess. CONGRATULATIONS on your 2 year Anniversary on getting Pickles. She went to a very good home.

RE: Dish 500 Antenna

You can use the 500 Dish with a dual LNB. You will get as stated 110 and 119. There are some of the HD channels on those birds. If you have a spare receiver just take it with you and the 500 antenna and you can do quite well unless you absolutely have to have all HD. All their channels are digital. Good Luck and Happy Viewing.

RE: No more BFG for me...

I ran the Rugged Trails on my Dodge for 75000 miles, took them off and replaced with the same thing.

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

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

Glad all are doing well. Charles, hope things at home are OK. Sandy, you shouldn't poke Dr. Doug in the chest to make a point :B Hope it heals quickly. Dan, hope Patty in coming along with the recovery. Gary, hope you are having a great time in the east without snow.:B Weather here has been warm as the temp pushed in the high 80's today and warmer tomorrow. Dogs are doing well. I need to check the water pump in the 5er and see if I just didn't have enough water in it for the pump to pick up. I only put in a little as we were going where we had water. No real plans for the holiday weekend. Just putzing around the house. All traveling stay safe.

RE: how do I stop hung clothes flying off rod when traveling

When driving down road and hit a dip on rd truck rear goes down and rear of trailer goes up throwing all hung clothes (where clothes closet is located) on to floor of closet Any ideas on how to stop this, I'm not a fast driver and everything else in trailer stays in place It Our clothes kept wanting to slide on the rod and fall so I put a length of swimming pool hose (corrugated)over the rod and the hangers seem to stay in place.

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

Fixed the camper myself. Couldn't seem to get an appointment with the folks I trust so I did it. Still don't know what the actual problem was, because when I tore the gear reduction box apart there were no bad cogs on the gears. I didn't take the motor reduction off and apart so it would have to be in there or the motor was getting soft.Either way I put in a new motor and reduction and the gear reduction box and it works. Took the toll on back and hips but it is done. It is somewhere between 70-73 breezy and sunny out today. Fur kids doing well. Richard, to answer your question - We are not camping - wishful thinking.

RE: Slide manual override

If you by chance have cable slide, you will find the motor in the top center of the slide. It has a fixture on the end that you can insert a drive and use a drill.

RE: Newer brake controllers question

My controller in my 2001 Dodge was rescued from my 1984 Ford. Old Kilbsy hays or Roberts I think. Still works but notice that I have it set all the way to max but is working like it used to when set 1/2 way to max at freeway speeds. (Brakes and wires and running gear all in good shape other than one drum needs brake eased up couple notches). I forgot to turn it down after getting off freeway today, when going thru town I made a quick stop for a light changing and wife ended up with spilt drink again. Neighbors Ram (2013) at our full time place has something that adjusts while he is motion and knows how much pressure to apply to braking system. Questions... Would a newer controllers know how fast I'm going and be more user friendly? Maybe thru the Tow vehicles computer? If so, would my 2001 computer (15 years old) be as good as newer computer on vehicles or even recognize it? Would hate to spend the money on new controller have the same problem. (I can't respond back right away, going to be off grid for couple days, but thanks in advance for any responses). I thought the older Kelsey Hayes were the ones that were hooked into the the brake line. I think you would be just fine with a newer controller. Good Luck and Happy Camping.

RE: over the hump floor mats

With my DW and I, I got the Weather-Tech made for the Chevy I just got. I didn't get the over the hump because normally no one will be setting there. Took Floormats out of the old truck and put them on the back floor. When we go camping the seats are folded up and the dogs blanket beds are on the floor. Good luck in your choice.

RE: landing gear suddenly doing nothing...

I just had that problem today. You will have an inline 30 amp fuse. Replace that and you should be good to go unless something else went oops.

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

Hi All, We had 1 nice day then a bunch of rain. This morning was around 40 and spitting a little 4 letter word (snow) As we were packing up to leave I ran into a problem with the front landing. I believe a gear stripped out and it would not lift the front end high enough to be able to back under it. With some help from Duane, we backed the truck up so pin was over the back of the bed and took a bottle jack and jacked it up til ran out of jack and then the legs would lower with little weight on them. Kept up the process until pin was high enough to back under and lock in then raised the the front legs up. Guess I will have to find someone who can fix the electric motor gears before I can unhook. Oh Well, Amish country is always fun to go to and the baked goods and out of this world. Hope you all have a good week upcoming and hug the Furkids.

RE: Michelin XPS ribs on fiver and truck?

If G rated is necessary then check the Bridgestone and BF Goodrich. Both are made by Michelin. I like my Michelins as they are a physically heavy tire, and I believe steel sidewalls.
