RE: Airstream for $2000!?!?!

I love it https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/dd/e5/1a/dde51ab6d38b519e748dd93246fa39c5.jpg On our last outing we saw a brand new trailer that looked just like that. Apparently their is a company that is making new retro looking models. Over the last few years I have seen several resurrected units in use. The most popular color seems to be a sort of a green. https://cdn1.rvtrader.com/v1/media/57be5147b03a227279ffd220.jpg?width=512&height=384&quality=60 Have fun!! Reference Shasta. We were at the Columbus RV show this year and saw some New ones. Yes there is a company making retros. If the original poster on the Airstream can get ahold of the poster, ask for the SN. Airstream is made in Ohio and they should be able to cross match the serial number. I believe the town is Jackson Center. We toured the factory a few years back.

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

We will be visiting the Petrified forest today. We will start heading east tomorrow. Will be stopping in Albuquerque for a few days, then continuing east. Looking for a nice resort around I-40 to recharge our batteries for about a week. Any good places anyone can recommend is greatly appreciated. If we have to go a little distance from I-40 is OK. We have stayed at a few campgrounds this trip that I would not recommend to anyone and are very uncomfortable. Would like a place to be able to feel safe and relax. The websites on the Internet are not what the campgrounds are like. Dan, Enroute to the National Rally Richard and I stayed at the KOA in Albuquerque. Very Nice campgrounds. Would have stayed there if they weren't full up in stead of staying on the grounds(parking lot) that the National Good Sam Rally was held on. Just finished reading the posts. So sorry to hear about the sickness in the family. May God be with the family and you and Patty. Please be careful coming home that you have safe travels.

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

Good Afternoon FOOFS, Things in the Buckeye are pretty good. Mother Nature keeps tricking us with the chance of some rain but getting none, It is probably too late for the corn but the beans could use some. Yesterday we had a southern day with sunshine and temps almost in the 100's. The night has been in the frigid upper 70's to mid 80's. Still too early to tell about the tumeric but Anna seems to be happy and healthy. I need to try to think of something to bring to the rally for the raffle.Any suggestions? I am getting an MRI the 20th of this month and then going back to the doctor on the 22nd to see what can be done with my lower back. I must have a nerve pinched or something. Got pain going down both legs and what feels like electric stimulus pulsating on down below my knees.What a pain :B Hope everyone is happy and healthy. We are looking forward to the Rally so we can see everyone again. We have Richard on the hunt for another doggie to give Anna a companion. He has a couple of Retrievers he is going to check into. Looking for something calm and lives in the house. We do miss Sarah. She was such a calm loving dog. At least we were able to give her over 7 years of happiness

Hard days work getting this rock moved. http://i1048.photobucket.com/albums/s373/Dan5714/image_zpsujh0wqvz.jpeg went to Arches NP today. What a magnificent place. Good thing you didn't get caught. There was something on the news last night they showed a fella I think Calif, that got caught pushing a rock that totally trashed the sight. OOPS Glad you are having fun. Stay safe.

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

Dr. Doug, We saw a friend at the grocery who had heard about using a little Tumeric a spice that is an anti inflammatory. She said she is giving 1/2 tsp. with supper to an elderly coondog. It had been having problems and this is the only thing different from the norm. Stated the dog is really acting younger again, eyes clear.What do you think?

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

Overnight we were in the upper 60's Great sunshine today and in the upper 80's. Dan and Patty, hope you are far away from Colorado as our papers front page showed Colorado Springs had 2 feet of hail! Richard, sorry to read that the trip to Knoxville was scrapped. Hopefully it is a short delay. We are planning on leaving for Seiverville on October 9th and stopping at Renfro Valley for the evening and hoping to be there Monday by noon. this will be the first decent trip out this year.:( First part of the year just wasn't good. Hope to get some camping in prior to Tennessee. Hope all are happy and healthy and have a good week.

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

Richard, What is the chance that there is a burr or a foreign piece of material that is cutting the bladder since this is the third one in the same slide? When I was groping around looking, there was something on the top lip that didn't feel quite right. Wish I could remember exactly what. If I have any memory at all I remember something about a cable on the top side or the connector didn't seem right for a reason I am not sure of now. I know something coming from left to right did not match up with the same thing going from right to left. (looking from the inside)Maybe my rambling will bring something to their attention. I have no idea why I thought there was some type of connector was not right unsecured possibly.

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

"I remember a time when I went on a rescue to save four puppies dumped out at a dumpster in Burke County. I thought I could just walk up to the little eight week old puppies, pick them up and head off to the vet. I reached down and picked up the first one without a problem. When I reached down to pick up the second I was bitten so bad my arm was torn up. I learned to always be calm, be patient, and be careful. By the way that was the only time I was ever bitten in all of the rescues I did. Who was it that bit me? It was Suzie. Yes that's right my dear, darling, sweet little Suzie." And the very laid back little girl that just came right out for Richard was..............Anna who still remembers Richard and Sue whenever she sees them. She still misses Sarah.

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

Good Morning, Just got back from the Bone Cracker.Trying to get the pain out of the waistline radiating down to the knees, then it becomes what feels like a pulsating electrical shock in both legs from the knees down. He doesn't seem to be able to figure it out so I have been referred to an orthopedic doctor. Probably need to have CAT Scan or an MRI. Hope I can get done with this soon. On a lighter note Lori and I went to Cleveland Sunday for the Indians/Angels game. After a rain delay of around 1 1/2 hours it was a good game.One of the folks we camp with won the use of her companies Suite. What seats! Now we know how the other half lives. We were right behind first base. You could be inside watching behind glass windows in stools or Armed Office type chairs or could sit outside under roof in the same comfortable armed, caster, height adjustable chair.Popcorn and drinks provided. Anna is still sometimes looking for Sarah and acting like she needs more loving.

RE: No more BFG for me...UPDATED!

Laknox, I ran the BFG Rugged Trails on an 05 4WD 2500 pulling my 5er probably close to 35000 miles. Total mileage on the tires was almost 75000 before I decided to change them and went with another set of the same. BFG is owned by Michelin. FYI Cooper Home Offices are in my home town. Have Discovers on the SUV

RE: Open Road 377BH Light Cover

Zekeman, I needed a couple of lens for my 337RLS. First ones I got from a dealer in Texas as that where we were. If your lens is still legible just take the number off the lens and then google for RV lighting. Sorry I can't remember the mfg name. Will look in the daylight and check the thread.

RE: Total knee replacement issues.

I have had both knees and 1 hip replaced, and for the most part probably abuse them. We live in the country and there are things that have to be done that can't be without getting on the knees.First knee in 2007 and hip 2009 and other knee in 2014. What ever the end up in your situation, do not skimp on the rehab. I have had virtually no problems. We are on our 2nd Fiver and would consider another one as long as I can get in. Best of luck either way you end up going enjoy the retirement. I came back and read more of the posts. I have "Zimmer"brand knees and they have treated me well.

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

Cream Cheese and Chicken baby food, such great ideas, Why didn't I think of that. All three of mine were on something. Peanut Butter and hot dogs seem to work for us, but every once in a while they would get stubborn. Thank You Richard, good to be back, I always loved the ideas from this forum. We have used aerosol can cheese for quite a while. Works great for giving pills (and Inexpensive)

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

Richard, if every pork chop were perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs! What about turkey hot dogs? :B Richard, How are you coming with that book that you got from me? Interesting isn't it.

RE: Changed trucks to a Ram 1500

I went a few years newer and got 2003 4X4. Now I need to get the truck set up for the camper. I am thinking airbags and new Bilstien shocks. The tires are rated at over 2400 pounds each which is over the axle rating of 3900. What are the best changes anyone has made to a 1500/150 for towing? The pin weight of the fifth wheel is 884.YOu should not have any trouble with the 5.7 I pulled a 34' with a 5.7 and 3.73 gears. If you beef the suspension a bit you should be able to do OK if you don't have gears lower that the 3.73. If mine had 4.10 gears I could have gone most anywhere. Good Luck

RE: Hesitating going into reverse

Well in mi for a trip. Notice backing truck up it hesitates engaging reverse. 2008 f350 with v10. Is it something other than tranny going out? the Dodge that I had, had the same problem. Needed a front pump but since under the extended warranty and having to tear quite a bit apart They just rebuilt the whole thing. Never had another problem with it for all the time I had it since.
