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

Have they had enough rain to get the swamp back up to enough water to get the floating tours going? You must be at Laura B. Walker. Lori said the next time we get down that we get together and head toward Magnolia Springs. Can also visit the Old Fella Memorial while in the area and troll the streets of your old stomping grounds. She said as long as not having to go through Atlanta. Could also go and visit your "cousin" :B

RE: insurance

Shawano, If you are of the age to get medicare, we have the supplemental insurance through the AARP United Health Care. We have Plan F and so far have not had any out of pocket expense since we got it. Prior to becoming of Medicare age I was paying $715/mo for our medical for the DW and I through the Police and Fire Retirement (also UHC Insurance) and when we got it as supplemental insurance I now pay around $225/mo for both of us. Good Luck in your search. As far as 5er insurance, we went with the Good Sam as we were able to get better coverage for about the same as we had with State Farm which we had for all our insurance needs.

RE: Open Range light fifth wheels

The Open Range is run by Randy Graber who did work for Keystone but was the original CEO when Open Range first started and is still there. Yes Jayco did invest in Open Range but it remains a stand alone company with the same management. I believe the merger just allowed OR a bigger cash flow so they might be able to step up a notch. Our OR was the 162 unit that Open Range built. Yes there was a delam problem on the back panel with ours but was taken back to the factory and fixed the same day it was taken in. They also checked out things that we had not even thought about (slide seal tear). The folks at the factory are excellent to work with and I would not hesitate to purchase another one. We have probably around 30,000 miles on ours and still enjoy it. Good Luck with your new purchase.

RE: Oven removal

Just FYI. check what kind of wiring is running to the microwave if it is in a slide. Ours has household wiring run through the regular walls but the slides have a flexible wiring almost like an extension cord. I tried to put in a convection combo and it would not hold the amperage. Just a thought. If MW is in a stationary wall you should be fine.

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

I am about ready to hunt down Mother Nature. We have had 3 days of 70's and they are predicting snow for tomorrow. Maybe an inch of heavy wet stuff. This is quite disgusting. Tomorrow temp is 38 for a high. Back in the 60's come Thursday.

RE: OHIO RALLY GROUP 2014 SCHEDULE

I think I am going to have to stalk Mother Nature. After a couple of days with over 70's weather and prediction of snow tomorrow, this is getting depressing. We at least had the opportunity to take the camper and leave for 3 weeks so that is some consolation. Looking forward to the first Rally of the year in Berlin.

RE: Dayton Ohio Area Question

If I remember, the truck stop south of the Dayton Hill but before Traders World has a Blue Beacon.

RE: Spring Rally-Berlin RV Park Ohio 05/02/14 to 05/04/14

Looks like we are on the countdown to the first Rally campout. Looking forward to seeing all you folks again. Hopefully it won't be snowing. :B

RE: dirty fiver on shakedown cruise

Have used Blue Beacon, which a lot of truck stops have on their lot. The only thing is that they don't do the roof. Do a pretty good job. When I took the 5er in I also had the truck done. Both around $60.

RE: Dexter Axles -- Common & Reliable?

I have had Dexter axles on the last 2 fivers and possibly the TT prior to these. Never had any trouble with any of them. The only thing I did do was to contact them about the wet bolt kit and bronze bushings as my original factory bushings were definately wearing out. I wanted to be able to grease the joints. As far as the axles, no problems in the 25,000 plus miles on the one I have now. Good Luck and Happy Camping.

RE: Adding BR A/C to Styrofoam insulated roof

I can't answer the specific question, but most of the time the factory will reinforce the area around the bedroom vent to hold the weight of the AC. If this had been done you would most likely have had factory wiring in the ceiling also. Good Luck

RE: Meet this Cutie

http://i58.tinypic.com/s33c5u.jpg Meet the newest member to our pack. His name is Sebastian and he's 7-years-old. And he is definitely as sweet as he looks. Lori took one look at this picture and said Ahhhh!! Looks like Charlie. We had a cocker named Charlie that was her Buddy.

RE: Another indecisive newbie, but I do have the truck

Personally I like having the truck and a 5er. You can very easily drop the 5er and use the truck for touring around the countryside and when you get ready you can back under the 5er and be ready to take off in a short time. Plus you have to consider the amount of room that the 5er gives you. But, you are the only one that knows your preferences. You are the one that must make the final decision after weighing all the comments. Good Luck and which ever you decide to get- Happy camping.

RE: Campground Near Magee Marsh Ohio

We want to visit Magee Marsh ( just east of Toledo ) A Search on Woodalls iPhone app doesn't show anything nearby, other than s State Park west of there near Toledo. Does anyone know of CG in this area ? Maumee Bay is off Rt. 2 about 4 miles east of I-280 (St. Charles Hospital is on the corner of your exit) We have been there quite a few times and really like it. You have electric only at the sites but depending on where you get parked you can run a hose from one of the hydrants and refill your tank if necessary. You won't find any bigger spaces in very many parks. Good Luck and Happy Camping

Windows 7 Desktop

Does anyone have any suggestions for purchasing a desktop that has Windows Home or Professional 7? I was able to find a new laptop with 7 but so far have not found anywhere to get a desktop with 7 in it. It is my understanding that Windows 8 or 8.1 won't run a lot of the programs from XP. Open for suggestions and Thanks ahead of time.

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

Glad the trip is going good so far. Sounds as if the furkids had plenty of room and you made good time. Be careful and enjoy the rest of the trip and don't forget to ride the roller coaster. :B :B

RE: Another 17.5 question

Sounds like you hit the Mother Lode. If your tires only have 5000 miles on them and you don't want to keep the others, then Craigs List sounds like a super idea. Do you have a spare for your 5er like the ones on the ground? If not keep one and advertise "4 New tires and wheels" Good Luck and great find.

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

Richard, hope you and Sue and the furkids have a very safe and enjoyable trip. Sure doesn't seem like a month since Mama left. I guess it has been a while since we left you all alone. :B Hope you have great fun. Have some for us as we have not been to Disney, maybe sometime.

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

Good morning. All is well here at Camp Dixie. All the girls are fine while Suzie is being naughty, as usual. Today was the day for their heart worm medicine. I break up the pill and mix it in with their food. Suzie picks out the broken pills and spits them out on the floor. I pick them up and put them back in the bowl and mix it into the food again and she picks them out and spits them out again. So I pick them up and poked them down her throat. I told her a two year old, that is the age of her mentality is not going to outsmart a seventy-two year old. Sue laughed. To give Anna and Sarah pills, we shoot a little canned cheese on the pill and they take it right down.
