RE: Wonder where a few of the core member's gravitated to?

http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag2/niasphoto/966f0306-cbf9-4998-b3b8-b6f91d1ae1f2_zps4gtooany.jpg Good Morning!

RE: Wonder where a few of the core member's gravitated to?

Yea but it's my story and I'm sticking to it. Unless the weather warms up to 80 degrees and I get a free week of vacation to go camping...in that case I abandon everything and hit the road...with my dog of course.

RE: I had a craving, but got over it!

DW is wanting to trade her Q37x for either an Edge or Explorer. We stopped by the local dealer this weekend to kick some tires. While she was talking with the salesmen I took a walk to check out their trucks. Many, many F-150 and up on the lot. Not a single truck on the lot was less than $40K. Not a single F-150 out of about 30 was a Max Tow or Max Payload. They were all $40K+ grocery getters. The cheapest SD I found was $58K MSRP. Many were knocking on $70K. CRAZY!!!!! X2 - Why I ended up with a new truck...because I couldn't find a good used truck for a reasonable price. All the ones under 26K were beat up pretty good. These things hold their resale value. I plan on keeping mine as long as possible. I don't see myself needing a bigger trailer for a long time anyway.

RE: Wonder where a few of the core member's gravitated to?

I tried the upload a photo however this forum apparently wants links back to online sites (no uploading photos that I could see) so I'll have to set something up on Photobucket (or similar) and get back to ya'll. Things have been a little hectic around here lately.

RE: Wonder where a few of the core member's gravitated to?

So are there openings in the core group then? :) I'll jump in....Whoaaaaaaaaaaaa there pardner. Before you can join the core group, we have to know what kinda dog food you think is best. Then, we get to tell you why it's the wrong food. If you put up a good argument, then you get to join the core group. It's really that simple!:) Sadly, I don't know what the best is. There are so many out there I think it's easier to close on a new house. Maybe I'm just not fit for the core group after all. Is there something in between core and lurker?

RE: Wonder where a few of the core member's gravitated to?

So are there openings in the core group then? :) I'll jump in. I have a 10 month Texas Healer who is recovering from surgery (spay) this week. She gets her stitches out next week. She has recently figured out that sticking her cold wet nose in my ear gets her my full undivided attention. She loves camping.

With OPEC competing with us oil companies...it might be awhile. Take advantage of it! I know I am.

RE: Compass not working F-350

Did you do something along this line when you followed the manual? I had to do that once with another truck and was successful. I got a chuckle out of step 3.

RE: Jensen Wall Mount Stereo issues

I once had a very similar issue with mine which has the glass front that just responds to touch. Is that the same deal with yours? My speakers would turn on and off, inside then outside all by itself. Anyway we would resolve it by disconnecting all power and unplugging from shore too. I installed a cut-off switch for that purpose. If I'd let it sit a few minutes and plugged it back in, then it'd be good to go for a few months. I have no clue why just pulling the fuse wouldn't do it for you though.

RE: Crazy Accident

This thread reminds me of a time when I was pulling my camper through Des Moines and there was some sort of major accident on I-80 as we approached town. At the time I was in the right lane. Behind me was another camper (part of our travelling parth). Traffic was crawling along at a snails pace (so both lanes were full) and it didn't take long for some bozo to come up behind us on the shoulder at a pretty good pace. Apparently he was far more important than the rest of us safely navigating towards the scene. Anyway, as he came up beside me he observed that the car in front of me was the Sheriff and slammed on the brakes. The Sheriff wasn't having it and gave him a very stern gesture to pull forward so he could pull in behind him. It was entertainment for us. In Iowa the rule is to slow down and/or move over for emergency vehicles. In this case the accident wasn't actually on the road way at all but off in the ditch. The right lane was never blocked at all. We were able to stay in the lane and proceed through but many did insist on moving into the left lane which really slowed things down.

RE: Update on Chinese tire performance

China bomb quality is all over the map. Some are decent, some are terrible. Discount Tire stopped selling one of the brands a buddy brought into Discount Tire for replacement. Was told they don't sell that brand anymore due to the many warranty claims. They set him up with another China bomb brand that is holding for now. Carlisle by chance?

RE: Are there any RV toilets with a P trap?

I was just wondering if anyone has tried THESE things. I gave them a shot this year for the first time and so far I am impressed. They claim you don't need RV TP but I haven't tested that just yet.

RE: No winter home for rodents

We also use Fresh Cab with a lot of success. I would recommend buying it at your local hardware store (over the RV dealer) or Amazon as you'll get it a lot cheaper.

RE: Campground Report: Nine Eagles State Park, Iowa

We were just over there too last weekend (on our way to Amana). We stayed at Lake Anita instead. I'll make a note to try that out next time we are in that direction. That shouldn't be too hard since we live on the Western side of the state. Iowa has some really nice parks.

RE: condensation on windows

We open the window, put the humidifier out in the camper or run the A/C for a bit when we get back. All work fine. It just depends on the circumstance.

RE: Ames Iowa camping spots?

Do they like ice cream? :) Hickory Park has their own ice cream inside too!

RE: Hail! Trailer is a write off

I was in the same shoes as you recently. I opted for a new trailer for three reasons. 1) I was already eyeballing another trailer that I wanted to get because it had a little more room and the floor plan was a little more towards my needs. 2) I didn't want the hassle of selling a salvaged trailer at any later time. 3) There was damage on the trailer that I would have to fix soon (like the A/C on top and the bathroom vent). It was beat up very well.

RE: Branson--2015--March-April get-togethers?

Log on to the Branson website and request a travel guide. That'll have everything in it. I really liked the pierced arrow and yakov myself. The Dixie Stampede wasn't too bad either. We normally camp at the Wilderness campground and take the shuttle to SDC but there are tons of nice places to camp in Branson.
