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.

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.
