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

According to the weatherman we can expect winter to come back to us the rest of the week. Below freezing at night with temps in the upper forty's. It won't be long before we start to see a warming trend. Robins have been visiting us in flocks so I expect the weather to turn spring like in a few weeks. You have said this before we have traveled to your home to get there and see snow. :B:B:B Richard and Sue: May you have a very Happy Anniversary tomorrow and be Blessed with Many More.HUGS TO YOU BOTH

RE: Screen Parts

Check with a local business that does window and screen work and see if they can help you out.

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

Richard, With the dogs and also the cat, We put some warm water in their food. Dogs get dry and a tablespoon of wet and warm it up with some warm water. The cat food is a pate but we keep the open can in the fridge so we use just a touch of warm water on it so it isn't cold. Jenni thinks the cat is at least 20 and still kicking. Dogs are doing fine Weather was in the 50's today but the rest of the week will be high in the 30's and maybe 40. Still having to help Jenni. Vision is a tiny bit better but still no sure cause. All blood tests and MRI, MRA and all blood are negative.

RE: Forest River - 2009 Sierra 356 RL

If Forest River was the last RV company, I would have to quit RVing. We had a TT new that was questionable and then a Sierra 5er that was genuine ****. Found the company very unhelpful.

RE: Clunk in my F250 when accelleating from a dead stop.

If you have a 2 piece driveshaft, check the carrier bearing and U-joints. In the truck I had it ended up being a bad U-joint so I had all of them replaced with greasable joints. Problem solved for me. This is just FYI for you in checking. Good Luck

RE: gm extended warranty best place to buy

With GM you can purchase the extended warranty any time before is goes out of warranty. If you are not the original owner you need to find out the "first put in service" date and the 3/36 starts from there. I know there is more warranty on the Duramax. I just bought a used 2014 Chev 3500HD with 7400 miles and the Chevy dealer told me that I would need to get extended within the 3 year/36000 mile period. Mine was first put in service August 2013 so I have until the date in August 2016 barring mileage overage.

RE: Hitch question

If that was the hitch that came from factory with 2" opening then it most likely is a heavy enough receiver frame to take the new trailer. You just might have to get heavier bars and depending on the trailer it may have a different size ball (2 5/16).I think the bars are rated 500,750, and 1000. Good Luck and Happy Camping

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

In kitty years Izzy is probably about the same age as we are and I don't know about you all but "Arthur" calls on me frequently. Hope all turns out OK. So far we are still trying to plan on getting down there the date talked about. Depends on the neighbor-they stopped the chemo to let him try to regain some strength and are dealing with Hospice. He has had a really rough way to go the past few months. On a lighter note we are going into a heat trend for the next few or so with temps anywhere from 30's to very low 50's Snow gone for the most part. Still need to get tailgate on the truck and take the rig out and adjust the brake controller. Got the pinbox lowered and hope this will take care of clearance problem. This truck has spring leaves that have never touched each other.

RE: Open Range Owners Any Problems

I have the 162nd unit OR built. Yes it did have some problems like any new company.They used to have their slide frames outsourced and they did not come back square causing early slide seal repair. They did have problems with the glue on the back panel delaminating. I took it back to the factory and they fixed everything while we waited. (2 days) That was in 2009. This past November I again took it back to the factory and had new slide seals installed, a couple of the horse decals, side bump trim, and 3 slide floors. FYI- keep a good look at the edges of the slides where the sides are screwed and along the bottom "L" that holds the floors in, and also the cable termination points on the slides and make sure they are all tightly calked very good as this is a point that water can seep in and soak the floor wood.Both times at the factory they were excellent to work with and went above and beyond to make us happy. Our OR had been close to 35,000 miles. I would not hesitate to purchase another one. Main reason was the dealer we purchased it from went poof-gone earlier last year.

RE: Dually as a daily driver

If you are going to use it as a daily driver and don't camp a lot whether a 2500 or 3500 Look at the gas version. Diesel is grands more and have a little less GVW due to the weight of the motor. I just got the truck in my signature used with 7300 miles on it. I have no objections with it as our camper was towed with a 2500 Dodge 4x4, 5.7 Hemi. Good luck and Have Happy Camping.

RE: East Harbor State Park - Ohio

It has been years since we were at East Harbor SP but it was quite nice. Check their website as there are some sites with full hookups. Maumee Bay SP is also really nice. The only drawback is electric only. You can reserve 6 months ahead of the dates you want to stay. Sometimes this is good if you want particular site. Good Luck and Happy Camping

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

Glad you had a safe trip. We also are looking at cold weather starting tonite. Temp right now is 8 and there is a wind chill advisory for this evening from-8 to -18 below. Wish we had the 5er hooked up and ready to leave. Should be sometime in the middle of next month. Hope all are having a great time and a safe time.

RE: Tonneau recommendations

The Extang Trifecta is a Tri-Fold cover and was great on my last truck. It could be opened when you wanted to use the hitch and it still covered the top 1/3 where we kept the genny.

RE: 5th Wheeler and Tag RV's

I was reading an Open Range Thread and they have started using fiberglass roofs. Good Luck and Happy camping.Open Range is now owned by Jayco. The folks answering state Highland Ridge home of Open Range. They are still a stand alone company.

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

Dash, Maybe you might think about giving that A a new home. You sure have had your share of problems with it. It is built by a company that if they were the last production company of RV's then I would be out of the camping life. If you want a little snow, come on over here. We only got an inch or so but it has changed to ice due to the warm temps :( It is 14 and -2 windchill but the wind has dropped to 20 MPH. The furkids are not taking too long to do what needs to be done outside. Windchill as low as -14 tonight. Crazy weather. Chances of rain on Friday. Hope you all down south are staying warm. Looking forward to going that way in February.

RE: How Legit is FifthWheelSt's Calculator?

Your tow vehicle weight is wrong. Not even a semi tractor weighs 15500. OK - I'm an idiot. I understood that field to be for the weight of the trailer. Thanks for pointing out my error. Having said that, when I correct that with the weight of the tow vehicle (7082 lbs) it still shows that I'm 2000 lbs short of being able to tow the trailer. I have a 2014 Chevy 3500HD and the GVWR specs are 13,200 and can tow a Older 3500's used to be 10,000

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

Gary, It may be coming your way. We have a winter weather advisory. It is still 22* out and the temp is just going to keep going down. We do have snow on the ground but not much. I would be happy if the snow was all over.

RE: Open Range vs North Point

My reply here is from one I did for another Open Range question: Our Open Range is a 2009 337RLS and was the 162nd unit OR built. At first they had some problems but heck everyone has some startup problems. We probably have around 35-40000 miles on ours and still love it. You will not find a company that is as willing to work with you if you do have a problem. I would not hesitate to purchase another one. FYI Open Range is now a stand alone company owned by Jayco. It is called Highland Ridge home of Open Range. They are in the same building plus 2 more bigger ones where they started. Randy Graber, who started Open Range is still with the company. I had pulled all of the miles on the trailer with a 2005 Dodge 2500 with a Hemi. The truck in my signature is one I just stumbled on with only 7300 miles and than excellent price, Traded the Dodge with over 100,000

RE: Are Open Range RV's Really Lighter?

We have a 2010 OR 337rls. Its 8800 lbs empty. We really like it...nothing seems cheap to us and we've been in every brand of rig out there...still prefer OR over others.
