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.

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

We got some rain last evening. About a mile north it was raining so hard you had to put the wipers on high. Here at home we had around 3.....Drops. We have been having Richard's south weather with some days with heat index in the 3 digits. Been in the upper 80's fairly regular an popping into the 90's on occasions. Anna still looks for Sarah on occasions then comes over and lays down close to one of us. I sure don't know what I have done as I have pain going down the back of both legs and what feels like an electric tingle closer to the shin and ankle. Been going on too long so I went to a massage therapist friend for a work over which seemed to ease it a little bu she suggested a bone crusher take a shot at it. So Monday I go and see him. Hopefully I can get relief prior to the Old Fella Rally. It is becoming a nuisance as it really lets me know it is there when I stand, sit or get on the ground. OH WELL,I shouldn't whine. This evening is my 50th class reunion. Had part last night (just snacks and chat) and tonite a catered dinner. Will be a good weekend.

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

Hello everyone, I'm sorry to hear about your Sarah Dan and Lori and Richard I'm happy to hear HOBO is feeling better. My condolences to anyone else I've missed in the past year. I'm not soliciting for symphony but a week ago I post that I lost all three of my sweet sweet cockers in a five month period. Evidently this is a closed group here because not one of you even bothered to acknowledge that I even posted. I understand things change but I didn't think it would ever get this cold. I hope everyone is happy in there camping adventures and as Richard says Tell someone you love them today. Take Care ChrisNPat, thank you for the kind words. I must take blame that sometimes I don't get to sit and and read the forums. I know what it is like to lose 1 let alone 3 in five months. You have my sincere apology. If possible try to come to this years Rally as Dixie said it might be the last. Again Sorry for your loss. It is like losing a family member.

RE: New truck-bed to high for fiver hitch-advice please

I had the same problem with the 2014 Chevy 3500 Crew cab I purchased. What I did was loosen the pin box and lowered the pin 1 hole on pinbox. That was about 2 1/2" and let my pinbox clear the side rails when turning. By lowering the pin it raised the nose of the 5er. I probably could have gotten a different pin box but this was free rather than spending the high $$ for a new pinbox. Good Luck and Hope this works for you.

RE: Looking forNelson Ledges type venues in other places.

I am not sure what kind Nelson Ledges is but if you want somewhere to go with country music, Check out Renfro Valley website. It is a campground that has some well known entertainers in. I don't know what part of Ohio you are from but Renfro Valley is about 265 miles, give or take from Findlay. It is located South of Lexington.

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

Going back over the early morning event with Hobo Sue and I agree it wasn't a seizure. She was in stress because she wanted to get up and couldn't. She felt she was in trouble because she pooped in the house. Once outside on the wooden deck she was wagging her tail trying to get up and just couldn't get to her feet. Sue and I brought her back into the house and gave her something for pain tramadol and rimadyl. This morning she was up and moving around and today she has been fine. She was favoring her right rear leg earlier today but not now. We just went outside and she followed and acted as if she was okay. Richard, was that the same paw she had problems with while you all were here. Tomorrow I will take her to the vet and see what he can figure out.:h Richard, any possibility of a hip dislocation? Sarah only had pain at the time of the event. Once it was dislocated she had little pain. Richard, was that the same paw she had problems with while you all were here. For those of you that may not have visited the Old Fella Rally thread, please check it out. It is going to be October 10-17 and quite a few of us are staying 2 weeks. This should be a good time for the fall leaf colors.

RE: Air conditioner noise

True Story time (Suggestion contained) Neighbor here at Cathead Creek was on his roof removing outer cover from his Carrier Air V (Same as OEM units on my RV) I wound up joining him, Same symptoms as you have, Loud "Rattle" type sound is how both he and I described it. Well I showed him how to remove the inner cover over the blower and we had his wife fire it up... Heard the sound clearly.. (Much louder in fact than with the cover in place) this localized it. We then inspected the blower.. he spotted many cracks in the "Hub" area which were allowing the rattle. Late Friday Afternoon, Nearest RV store is 30 miles or more.. And will be closed by the time we get there... It's hot, he needs his A/C,, where can he get a replacement at this late date? Well, recall I said OEM? one of mine had been replaced, when we "Dropped" (Set gently) the old one on the ground I went to work and salvaged several parts... Including the blower.. Had one in my basement (He was very happy, and cool that weekend). I also inspected his to make sure he did not have the same problem that killed one of mine (The other one had it too... But I fixed that). Another true story: Had a mud-dauber build a nest on one of my fans (the other end of the motor shaft) Happy to hear your outcome. I have been trying to find the fan for the Carrier Air V for quite some time with no results. I wish I could find one as the patch job isn't going to last forever.It appears that parts are a thing of the past since Carrier doesn't make RV units any more. If anyone knows of or has one please let me know. I would be happy to take it off your hands.(compensate)The hub on my fan had cracked and the squirrel cage was rattling.

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

Thanks, Definately will be an empty spot here for a long time. Sarah and Anna would see who could get to the truck first to jump in so we could go camping. I came down from upstairs, stopped and petted her and went around the corner. She wanted to see where I had gone and made it about 5 steps and collapsed in the hall and that was it. Hopefully she had a good 7 1/2 years. She and Anna used to play and romp around. We made sure Anna saw Sarah so she had some idea of what had gone on. Anna sniffed Sarah and said her good-byes. Sarah just kept getting worse and her quality of life was gone so she didn't have to be transported anywhere.Her spirit has gone to the Rainbow Bridge and she has all the quality is back and has others to play with while waiting. In all the time she was with us, she never gave us any problem. Such a sweet and gentle companion.

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

Sarah had a rough nite last night. She tossed her diner along with her medications. This morning her breathing was between 125 and 130 breaths per minute. I helped her out to the kennel so she could take care of business then when she was done I had to really help up the steps and back in. Earlier today she was off her food and would not drink water. Later this afternoon she did decide to drink some water and drink she did. As the day went on she kept down her pain med and the Brocho- Dialator. Still breathing fast but quieter.Just trying to let the meds work some and see what becomes of the situation.It seems that the last 2 weeks she has gone downhill and getting weaker. Lori said she just went out and took care of business so those things are still working proper.

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

Charles and Charlotte, so sorry to read about your loss. Just be assured that Oreo is feeling no pain and is with other fur friends while waiting to be reunited. It is very hard to lose something that gives unconditional love. We have had Sarah to the vet 3 times in the last 2 weeks. Seems to have a breathing problem. Ran tests, not viral,blood tests are normal except White blood count slightly elevated. Have her on an antibiotic, broncho-diolater,(Theophylline) tramidal. Xrays came back good. Vet even had a Radiologist look at Xrays of the lungs and throat ares. Sort of baffled as to the cause. She has rapid breathing and with occasional dry cough. Seemed to come on quite sudden. Vet is guessing Sarah is in the 12 year old range.

RE: Converter Toubleshooting Question

Your WFCO has 2 fuses on the front of the case. There was a question about the green wire- that is to be attached to a chassis ground. The larger 2 go into the power box which has wires coming out going to the battery. Neighbor had one that all fuses good as were the connections. She got a return authorization to ship it back to the factory

RE: Open Range Light

We bought a light 5h wheel in 2014, I have had many trailers in my life time, this is the worst of all, many problems, including slide gear boxes, now we have to carry $700.00 in spare parts, this is not right Rich Your and the one above are the first I have seen regarding slide motors. Did you have the cables properly adjusted so as not to put undue stress on them? If you go to BAL website you will find complete instruction on how to do it. We have a triple slide OR that was built in 2008 and titled 2009 and have not had a failure to date. Have had cables adjusted once.

RE: Campground Recs near Cleveland and Detroit

You might also check out Harbortown RV park. I believe it is a Monore Mi address. Cleveland area check Cuyahoga State Park.

RE: Open Range Light

Open Range now called Highland Ridge RV after Jayco purchased them. Read more... Not sure what year Open Range you are looking at since the new company was formed in 2014. We bought a new Open Range in May of 2008 and still have it. Yes, Jayco bought Open Range but Randy Graber who used to work for Keystone and Started Open Range is still there. It is a stand alone company that answers the phone Highland Ridge home of Open Range. Since our dealer went out of business without advising anyone, I had the opportunity to deal with the "New Company" and found it to be just as good as when we bought ours. FYI ours was the 162 unit Open Range built. I would not hesitate to purchase another one for the service we were shown by Open Range. Good luck. Just thought I would throw in my 2 cents since I have owned one.

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

Unfortunately Richard and Sue left and headed toward the home front. They will probably be glad to get home but sorry they couldn't continue their trip. They and the furkids were here with us for a week and we had such a great time. Sunday we went to the lake and ate at the airport diner called the Tin Goose. they fly Ford Tri-Motors from there as well as being an public airport. Had good food and great views of the runways. They are going to stop in Wytheville, Va this evening having over 1/2 of the way home. Suzi and Anna had a great time romping around and Peaches and Hobo would join in occasionally. We are looking forward to the Old Fella Rally in October. Hope to see quite a few of you there for the Rally. A few of us have booked 2 weeks. Hope all had a Happy and Safe 4th Weekend. Have a good week.

RE: Gas challenged?

We have a booklet called "Next Exit". Got it a CW. Tells you what is available at the exits (Interstate), big rig friendly, food, etc. We are on our second one and like it. Good Luck and Happy Camping

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

Talked to Richard last night. Everyone healthy, just had things around home to address. Today they are on the road. They will be stopping at Fort Chiswell in Wytheville for the evening then heading out for our place tomorrow morning. We (Lori and I and Anna and Sarah) are looking forward to seeing them and spending a little time.

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

It was pretty nice here today but this evening is questionable. Possible very heavy rains and winds and could get up to 4" of rain if it doesn't go around us. Keeping fingers crossed. Richard, Anna and Sarah are looking forward to seeing you and Sue as are we. I will bet with you via phone and try to explain where I want you to give us a call from so we can meet you and lead you in.

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

Problem solved, all systems go.:B Bright daylight revealed a better view of the rear tires and they are okay. Dan see you and Lori as planned. If you wanted to see the inside tires dates, couldn't you put the rear jacks down and raise the chassis making it easier to slide in?

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

Richard, We feed Sarah Purina Dog Chow 1/3 cup twice a day mixed with a soup spoon of canned and blended with warm water. We do this morning and evening. Anna gets 1/3 cup of Royal Canin SO (UTI) Urinary Tract Infection also blended with a soup spoon of the canned blended with warm water, also two times a day. The Royal Canin is due to her Bladder Stones years back. Both dogs seem to be healthy and happy. They also get treat bones. We were also in the 90's yesterday and close to 80 today but not as humid. Looking forward to seeing you and Sue in a couple of weeks.
