RE: Be prepared

Finally went to catheterization lab last night. Had 90% blockage in one of the main veins. Placed stent right next to the stented blockage that I had in2002. Woke up this morning with no chest discomfort. Waiting for Dr. to release me. I may or may not drive home tomorrow.

RE: How to use a coffee boiler

I still have my dad's pot. He would rinse the pot on Monday morning and put a hand full of coffee in. Monday he would add a little more fresh coffee and more water. By Friday his pot would be half full of grounds. I never did drink any of his coffee.

RE: Be prepared

False alarm day before yesterday. After two more days of testing the word is that I will be consulted today about the procedure. I haven't been too happy with my cure. The Dr. seems to like a cloud of serecy around him. I've fasted for 3 days straight now. Mostly on my own anticipating these tests.

RE: Shingles,,, how many have gotten shingles after vaccination!

As a veteran pneumonia and shingle shots are furnished. Also get flu shot at the VA each year. They told me the shingles shot didn't necessarily prevent shingle but usually made them milder.

RE: Be prepared

I have the procedure this morning. I called a old neighbor and he has the week off from work and will come get camper when I'm ready. Park rangers says not a problem staying over the 14 day limit. We won't know until after the procedure whether stents will do the job or bypass. I had a fairly damaging heart attack 13 years ago so I am expecting the worse scenario. I feel good right now.

Be prepared

Visiting my daughter this week and camping in a Corp park nearby. I get chest pains and end up in the nearby University hospital. I'm stuck here for I don't know how long. Possibly bypass surgery. My wife isn't physically capable of hooking up and driving home. This is the second time out with the new rig. Dogs need to be in a kennel. I feel fine at the present and I'm trying to talk the Dr. into letting me take the camper and dogs home and come back for the next stage of testing. He is thinking about it. I'll be talking to my neighbor to see if he will be able to help if I have another problem like this. He is retired and has a similar size 5er. I'll try to talk my wife into trying to tow. She will always be able to get help hooking up in a campground. My wife will be able to stay with my daughter. I hope I can get everything straightened out.

DW wouldn't ride with me anymore

After I put my motorcycle down last fall with my DW aboard she refused to ride with me again. I have decided that I probably shouldn't be riding a motorcycle any more. Sooo with a little boot I traded for this.Clicky 2007 Pontiac Solstice with 2100 actual miles on it. That's right 2100 miles. We will both still have fun.

RE: Anderson Levelers

I just bought a set/ My 5th wheel is now sitting on a pair on a cement pad and working fine. The only problem I have is that my tires are close enough together that it is difficult to get a lever between them.

RE: Lowes AND Home Depot-horrible quality

We have absolutely no problems with quality in our local Lowes and HD stores. However we winter in Texas and find quality issues in each and every Lowes and HD stores there. I believe it all boils down to the quality of management and help in the stores in that area.

RE: Dining table stablizing

Do you have the sliding table with the extension on the wall end? That is what I have in my new cruiser. Mine wobbled so I used wooden shims on the underside of the table in the slide rails. The slide is wood on wood and not very tight. My table is also too high to eat comfortably from. I will probably shorten the base and modify the slide to make it solider.

RE: Back to dealer again

May I ask politely why the rig was not checked out by yourself until your trip? The A\C problem may have been tough to find on a driveway shakedown but the blacl water drip would have been found. Even though Quicksilver is a veteran it still goes through a 48 hour shakedown before a trip. I have a life and have other commitments to tend to. I don't always have the extra time to spend on preparing for a trip.

RE: Back to dealer again

I guess I didn't check the black water valve was because I didn't think I needed to take a dump in a clean tank. They also replaced the gray water valve as it was leaking. Take the face of the air conditioner on the ceiling off. You will see that there is a partition above it. Cold air comes out one side and return is on the other. With the deflector cover installed 180 degrees from correct position it forces cold out return and sucks through vents. After that the air conditioner worked fine the first day out. Next day it ran but didn't cool. I can't blame the air conditioner not working on the dealer but all of the other issues should have been addressed before delivery.

Back to dealer again

Purchased a new 5er this spring. Didn't get to use it until two weeks ago. First it was a possible recall on axles. Axles ok. Then the air conditioner was installed wrong. Cold air coming out the cold air return and no cold air to the vents. After the first trip out I discovered the blank tank valve leaked. What a surprise. Dealer fixed I hope. Out by myself this week and the air conditioner quits on the second day. I came back to 95 degree temps in my unit. Got it cooled down enough to sleep with Max Fans. Taking it back to dealer tomorrow. Second unit this brand with absolutely no problems with the first one. Now built by Thor. Fit and trim much better but evidently everything wasn't checked out before delivery. I suppose it will take a month to get the air repaired so I can get a few more trips in this year. Not very happy.

RE: First trip with 2015 Ram 2500 6.7L "UPDATE"

I traded it off. It developed some electrical gremlins. I wasn't real happy with the tow either. The mechanic at the dealer worked on it 4 days last week and as of Friday afternoon thinks that maybe the ABS sensor was the cause of according to him at least 25 codes. The new truck was invoiced before January 1 and had some good incentives that came off invoice price. I actually was able to trade for a little less than $1000 over the cost of the diesel upgrade. New truck, old inventory.

RE: First trip with 2015 Ram 2500 6.7L "UPDATE"

I should be able to pick up my new 6.7 Tuesday or Wednesday. Won't get a chance to use it until after the 4th of July due to schedule. My first pull will include some hilly country though not mountainous. It will be a new experience for me so I appreciate the advice too.

RE: Ram 2500 with 6.4 Hemi

I foolishly got rid of my Ford diesel and bought the Hemi 6.4 having been advised that it would do the job. It did do the job at the expense of mileage. I'm talking in the 6 mpg range in Iowa. I knew the gasser wouldn't do as well as the diesel and was willing to live with it. At 2064 miles every warning light on the dash came on and after 4 days at the dealer the cause has not been determined. The day it happened the first time it produced at least 25 codes according to the mechanic. Only happens after the truck has reached operating temps. The good news is that I was able to trade it for a new Cummins equipped truck and amazingly didn't lose my tail. The truck was invoiced before the price increase at the beginning of 2015 and had enough incentive that I traded for not much more that the cost of the engine. Yes I was some what discouraged by the performance of the 6.4. Maybe I expected too much. It did do a lot better than the 2011 6.0 Chevy that I had.The shop should have my new truck prepped by Tuesday. I'll let you know what I think of the diesel then.

Maybe next week

We bought a new Crossroads Cruiser this spring. With crappy weather and numerous Dr. appointmenst we haven't been able to take it out for a shakedown. We were planning to take it out tomorrow and spend a week with our grand kids. Mailman rang the doorbell this morning so I could sign for a certified letter. Seems Crossroads has a recall on some of their recreational units. Something about the possibility of wheels falling off. Since Thor bought them out the quality has improved drastically. Thought I had a pretty nice unit. We had our previous unit for 8 years and not a problem with anything. I will take it to the dealer tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully ours is not one of the ones that has the problem and we will be able to go in a couple of days. I can only hope. w

RE: 2006 crossroads cruiser 32BL

I did a Bing search and found on in Chesapeake, VA. I'm on my second Cruiser. My first one was a 30sk. We loved the layout but the fit and finish was really sub-standard. That when they were built by Crossroads. Thor bought Crossroads out a few years ago and I'm amazed how much better built they are now. I see average retail is $19,000 per NADA. I would find it hard to pay that much for a 2006 model. Don't get me wrong. We had absolutely no trouble with our first one. Fit and finish is much better on our 2016 model. Still the stupid mistakes or lack of paying attention to details that occurs in all of them. I turned on the air for the first time yesterday. It ran but didn't cool. Figured out they had put the roof ducting on 180 degrees off. Cool air blew out the return vent so there was no way to direct it to the ceiling vents. Easy enough fix. Good luck. Lay out was the reason we like Cruisers. Hope you can find one to look at.

RE: Medicare & ChampVA as supplement

I have been 100% for some time now. I carry a supplement on myself but the wife does not. Typically anything not covered by Medicare is covered by Champ VA. The only thing that we have had to pay would be a deductible for medication. I though carry a supplemental policy on myself.
