RE: 7" GPS Mounting Locations

I have the 7710 Rand McNally. Mounted the steel plate on the dash and turned the arched arm upside down that attaches from the mounting plate to the unit itself. This placed the GPS partly below the front of the dash leaving less obstruction. Very easy to see over what is left sticking about the dash. Good Luck and Happy Camping.

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.
Dandy Dan 04/14/14 03:13pm RV Pet Stop

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: 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
