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

The weather today is going to be a little cool with a high of 73 degrees It is still 84 here. Weather is nice here. We have been working on raised beds for Lori's garden. Will call you later this evening.

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.

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

Yeah! We are finally out of the drive with the camper. Came down to Amish Country where two of the Old Fella Rallys was held. Weather is nice today bur forecast for rain tomorrow. It is just nice to get away for a couple of days. Anna and Sarah love to camp and when we got ready to leave, both dogs ran out the front door and bailed into the back seat area ready to go. Hope everyone is happy and healthy.

RE: Dim Display on Rand McNalley 7735

I had this problem with my 7735 in my last truck, had the brightness setting all the way up and also had it on Day Light all the time. I have been using the glare reducer screen and also have the shield that goes over the top and sides. Seemed to help. Don't know about my new to me truck. Got a 2014 with 7300 miles on it and have not had the chance or need to use it. I think the dash sits a little lower than the Dodge.You might try changing the angle of the screen some as that can help also. Good Luck and Happy Camping

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

We are doing OK. Patty goes back to Doctor on Friday. She still has days where she does not feel very good. We hope it is just healing problems. Dan and Lori glad you guys finally get to get out. Let us know how the new truck does. Maybe one day we will be able to get out as well. We are hoping so. Going to take the neighbor with us (husband died in January) as they have camped with us before. I think she is going to have their 5er out at the local state park for the season. They were camp hosts the last several years. I hope Patty had a pain free Mothers Day. Hoping for a speedy recovery so we can go camping together again. PS I can't believe we have averaged over 2500 posts/year and over 200,000 looks/year. That says a lot about the thread and the original posters.

RE: Can CCC be increased by making alterations to a Cameo 5er?

Yes, I have had the brochure printed out. The salesman read the yellow sticker inside the coach and that is what was printed on there. It has a generator already installed, 2 A/Cs, etc. Even the brochure stated 1,749 is pretty low. The 2010 allows 2,749 CCC, so something went whacko in 2009, it appears. With the numbers being equal except the first, How about considering it a typo?

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

Wouldn't a rental from Enterprise that drops it off and picks it up work? No hooking/unhooking, tow bars, or worries about backing. We have done that and yes it is less that paying for the tow bars. However rental cars are not available in all places. So with that in mind and having had that experience we decided to buy the tow bars. Today I went to Camping World and bought what we needed. Richard, For as many MoHo's you seeing with a toad, If there was a problem I don't believe you would see that many. I would venture a guess that you have more than enough to pull that car without hardly knowing it is there. What difference is it than pulling your 5er which weighs more than the car you are planning on towing. If you are worried about hooking and unhooking, call Roger and Cindy. Cindy used to do everything. You shouldn't have to swing any wider with or without the car as it will track right behind you. I guess I wouldn't think twice about it but I drove all over towing a 40' trailer with a gross vehicle weight of well over 80,000# at time..

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.
