Camping World SALE pricing

CW sent out a flyer showing that RV Anti-Freeze was on sale for $4.99 What a sale price!!! Locally at a big box store it is around $2 so I guess I can't drive 35 miles to the local CW to buy.

RE: Open Range 349RLS

We have a 2009 385 RLS and we use it a lot. 12 to 15 trips a year. We have had some age related issues like slide seals needing replaced but I had no problems doing those myself. There have been a few other minor issues but nothing too major. One thing about RV's if you use them a lot things will break. I mean you are taking a small house and bouncing it down the road several times a year. On the other hand I have seen just as many problems from not using them often enough. We just took our last trip this past weekend and it seems our converter is dying on us. Looks like a new one costs around $200 and I get to learn a little more about the electrical system! $200 may seem like a lot up front but break it down to 5 years use and it is less then one night of camping per year. Before you go to the local RV Dealer, check out a new convertor on Amazon. I think you will find it much cheaper. I thought I had a circuit board go out of my water heater and local dealer wanted over $200. Got it from Amazon for $150 including over night shipping.

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

Gary, We hope you have a very Happy Birthday and are blessed with many more ahead. Hug the dogs and tell them we want to see them sometime so you are going to have to make a campout somewhere. Have a safe winter.

RE: Open Range Slide @ Myrtle Beach

FYI - Just got home. I talked to three different companies that were working in the campground. None of them had worked on the OR cable systems before. One said he'd give it a shot but I passed. Don't want to be his "lesson" Go to the web and go to BAL Inovative Products. That is the cable system OR uses. It gives you a lesson on the cable system. Good Luck and Happy Camping in your OR.

RE: MH vs 5er

There are times that a MH would be more convenient. Being ably to use the little room without getting out, can put a crock pot in the sink and fire up the genny and have dinner ready when you want. Other than the cost of the MH I opt for the 5er. I only have one drive train to take care of. When I get where I am going I unhook the 5er and have my touring vehicle already. I think you do get more room in the same length from a 5er The choice must be yours. Good Luck in your search and Happy Camping.

RE: Tybee Island or Jeckyll Island? Thoughts or comparisons?

Don't know if they still have it at Tybee, but when we were there they have a shuttle service from one of the local Trolleys in Savannah come out to the campground and will take you into Savannah and drop you off at the Trolley. Tickets for all day can be had from the campground office. The Crab Shack is a neat place to eat. It west of Tybee a couple of miles. The only downside of Tybee was that it didn't matter where you went you better have a parking pass. Other than that we had a great time. Good Luck in your choice and Happy Camping.

RE: Better to lower hitch or raise pin box?

Raise the pin box or lower the hitch should give you the same results. Raise the pin will lower the front. Lower the hitch will do the same thing. What makes the difference other than the amount of work? I would lower the hitch. It is a lot less work and easier that the other. Good Luck and Happy Camping.

RE: Open Range 349RLS

JEPalmer, we are in our 6th year with ours and would not be afraid to buy another one.

RE: Open Range 349RLS or 2014 OR RF 345 RLS Roamer

Joss, you will find the factory is quite customer friendly. We have had ours since May 2008 and have not had any regrets getting an OR even though ours was the 162nd unit they built. I am taking it back to the factory to have new slide seals put in since our dealer disappeared in March or April. They are going to change out a couple of the decals that have curled but nothing major. You may have just one AC now but find out if it is wired and already framed in for the 2nd. Did you know that Open Range has been purchased by Jayco. The factory is now called Highland Ridge home of Open Range. Good luck in your choice and Happy Camping.

RE: Forest River NHTSA investigation

Looking at the list, it is everything they produced during the period during which NHTSA suspects them to have not complied with reporting requirements. Not just RVs, all vehicles. The issue is that F-R forwarded no complaints, filed no reports, made no recalls? I expect this will be leading to a records seizure, which for us as customers might mean not being able to get service from the company, depending on how much is seized, since customer service is where you would look for records of complaints. Kinds of makes you think that Forest River doesn't care if it plays by the rules. About the way they treat some of their customers.

RE: Cool find on Craigslist!

looks great, P.S I ran hot rods in the 60,s with the 283 engine , and have a lot of trophies because the engines were great, 283's were HOT STUFF until the 327's came out. Ran a '56 Chevy with factory "Power Pack" (dual 4 barrel carbs), dual point Mallory ignition, milled heads, 3/4 race cam, solid lifters and 4.11 rear end. It was an 1/8th mile machine, set up for indoor winter drags. On the street, it jumped so much off the line, that I rarely had to push it past 2nd gear. Just shut it down and grinned. It had no top end. Was done at 75 mph. Not the engine to pull/carry a load. "Nothing beats cubes" but the 283s tried until the 327 SSs beat them factory stock. There is nothing wrong with a 283. They are the bullet proof engine until the 327 came out. 348 was a big block.

RE: I 75 Kentucky campgrounds

The campgrounds at Renfro Valley where the country music is is easy to get in and out. We like it real well and like others said, Kentucky Horse Park Campgrounds is nice. It has water/electric and dump station, also 50 amp. Good Luck and Happy Camping. Renfro Valley is also Passport.

RE: Window fan (s)?

You said you didn't want to turn on the AC, why not just put it on fan only and it will circulate the air without chilling it? Good Luck and Happy Camping

RE: Gray gelcoat and black trim

Yes I can see a dark gray being hotter but the unit I'm looking at is a pretty light shade of gray. Here is an example of the color: http://www.rvusa.com/rvs/2015/eclipse-attitude-32sag-gray-call-for-the-lowest-price-slideout-s-toy-hauler-new-turlock-california-419398 Mine wasn't exactly dark gray http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l10/heritage93/rig1.jpg We have had our Open Range since May 2008 and like the gray. Haven't had any problems with the gray. Tired of looking at the white.

RE: US23 Columbus, Ohio to Portsmouth?

There is a fair amount of 2 lane on 23 south of Columbus. I came home from Asheville on 23 one time and will not do it again. 3 weeks ago we traveled I-75 south. Yes there was construction in Dayton and some in Cinci but it was not bad but we traveled on Sunday. Went as far as Renfro Valley. Have you thought about heading out of Ohio and catch I-77 south and then pick up I-95 to continue on south into Florida. Either way have a safe trip and Happy Camping.

RE: Camping near Gatlinsburg, Tn.

Just returned from a week at Smoky Mountain Premier RV Resort. Had wonderful week. New campground, not busy, very friendly. Sights are nice and large compared to most. Just off Hwy 321 east of Gatlinsburg,Tn. The owner is on sight most of the time in his MH. We spent a week at Riverside RV park in Sevierville. Nice folks and nice pull through sites as well as back-ins. It sits on the banks of the Little Pigeon River. Very easy to get to off I-40. Going back next year for 2 weeks. Already have reservations.

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

My trip to the doctor has earned me another biopsy of the prostate. I am scheduled to have that done November 5th. I don't understand how his PSA results can be so different from my regular doctor. However as Dr. Flanagan pointed out both results are high. So he and Sue convinced me to have another biopsy done. Okay that is enough for this morning. Here's wishing everyone a blessed day, talk with you later. Lori said that the high PSA can be caused by many other things besides cancer. Prostate cancer is very curable. You said you were worried about it spreading to the bone. You have to get a positive that you have cancer of the prostate before it can spread anywhere. So far your PSA has been elevated but no one can tell you exactly why.Probably stressing for nothing. Lori says "practice what you preach and put it in God's hands" live each day to the fullest and don't ruin your life worrying. You are gong to be around for a long time so we have the opportunity to come and pester you and Sue.:B So much for the Soapbox.

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

Come join us at the Old Fella Rally in the Great Smoky Mountains in Sevierville, Tennessee. Riverside Campground and Resort is the site for the rally. The Old Fella Rally was held at this campground in 2014 and it was so well liked that it was chosen again to host the rally in 2015. Every family that attended the Old Fella Rally in 2014 registered for the rally in 2015 before they left. That says a lot about how great a campground this is. http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s211/Levi449/Picture699.jpg The legacy lives on as people from all over the United States join together to celebrate the life of Old Fella and the inspiration he generates to keep the rescue effort alive. Make your reservation today and see the beautiful Smoky Mountains in fall colors next October. Gather around the evening campfire and share stories of adventure and inspiration. It is a time of building memories and making new friends and keeping in touch with old friends as well. FYI The dates for the 2015 Rally are October 5-12. Some have also reserved the next week through the 19th as the fall colors should be in their prime. We definately enjoyed this years Rally and are looking forward to next year.

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

If anyone wishes to plan on next years Old Fella Rally, it is going to be held at the same campgrounds. Folks are friendly and big pull though sites. Dates are October 5-12 2015. Mark the calenders and make early plans and reservations. Ours are already made.
