RE: Bypassing I-40 in eastern Arkansas

Due to a change of plans, we ended up using I-40. They have patched the holes.

Bypassing I-40 in eastern Arkansas

While checking into a CG in Sikeston MO yesterday, everyone asked if I had just come from I-40 & I-55 to get there. I told them no, we were headed that way next. They all turned pale, then told me their war stories. I got onto the forum and found a thread about same. So looking at the map, it seems taking US 60 west to Poplar Bluff, MO, then US 67 down to Little Rock would be a nice way around it. From what I see, much of it is 4 lane. In any event, we are going to do it today, and I'll post a recap. Thoughts?

RE: Random p**ping elderly dog

We asked about the cognitive issue. The vet didn't feel that was the issue here. We left it that it will be monitored and maybe visited again. We trust the vet, and in any event the end is not too far off one way or the other. We aren't going to change vets at this point. Thanks for all the help.

RE: Random p**ping elderly dog

She is getting all of the good stuff for arthritis already. I am going to ask about the cognitive aspect, because she is definitely showing some dementia. Not enough to be a problem by itself, but it's happening.

Good to hear, Burl.

RE: help w/ coach battery USE/STORE toggle acting up

Also, at some point (after I crashed the step into something because it was not powered when I started the engine) I moved the step wire onto a different terminal. I don't recall if the drawing shows the old or new placement of the wire. It shouldn't matter to your situation. The thing labeled Batt Switch is the Use/Off switch.

Burl, Here is my sketch of the Intellitec Bird as installed on the TL. You might click on the URLs and see them better.

RE: Random p**ping elderly dog

Thanks for all the comments. She is in some pain every day but as far as that goes she's not at the end point. Then again, waiting until she is absolutely miserable doesn't seem right either. Well, you all know how tough that decision is. I appreciated the comments from those who have had to do it. We don't think she is there just yet. We have the vet appt this PM, so I'll report back.

Random p**ping elderly dog

We have a 14.5 year old female lab. More and more, she just poops without even seeming to know it. Since she is a house dog, you can imagine the difficulty this presents. We have an appointment scheduled to discuss this with the vet, but we have mentioned it in the past and no remedy was offered. We take her outside frequently now, as if we were house-breaking a puppy. We don't yell at her or anything like that. There's been no change in the environment. I think she just can't sense that it's about to happen. Sometimes it happens while she rests or sleeps. Has anyone dealt with this?

RE: About these City and State Parks in TX and OK

+1 on Lady Bird. Beautiful municipal park (some sites can be close, however; check your site before you accept it) and a really fun golf course which was just renovated recently. And you can't find a neater little town than Fredericksburg. SFA is a nice state park with good trails for biking and hiking, some near a river. Haven't played the golf course but it looked pretty from the road. Not much else to do, as there's really no town there. Bastrop State Park also has a course - a very old one built in the CCC days. Love the park, but haven't played the course. There's another course nearby that is beautiful, however (Pine Forest). We stayed at Lockhart SP once, and I golfed their course. It was pretty low end, rough, and did not get much business. The guy I golfed with said the Bastrop course was the same way.

RE: About these City and State Parks in TX and OK

Thanks folks. Keep em coming. I guess I need to mention that I plan to get to the courses by bicycle! I have a hitch on the bike, and tow a golf push cart backwards (on two wheels). It's an ebike so I can go a fair distance without it being much trouble. BUT, if I have to ride on public roads with heavy traffic to get to any of those courses, please let me know. I want to avoid that. That will make a difference to me as far as where to go. Crossing a highway should be ok, though. BTW for the benefit of future readers of this thread, this website was my starting point: Texas CGs with Golf Courses I figured out that some of them are just stay and play deals, and the course is 10 miles away.

About these City and State Parks in TX and OK

I am looking at some places that have golf next door or within the park. I'll check rvparkreviews.com, but how are these CGs/SPs?: Texas: Lady Bird Johnson RV Park in Fredericksburg Llano River RV Park (city park) in Llano San Saba River RV Park (city park) in San Saba Stephen F Austin SP in San Felipe OK: Lake Murray State Resort Pk in Ardmore (Lake Texoma) Lake Texoma State Resort Pk in Kingston I'm mostly wondering if the parks are nice, roomy, scenic, whatever. If you have info on the golf, I'd like to hear that too. Thanks.

RE: Reflections on 6 Months of RV Research! ;)

Mark, The issue as I see it is the seam between the roof and the wrap piece. Those seams are great places for leaks if they are not maintained. My strategy is simple. Maintain it. :) :)

RE: Reflections on 6 Months of RV Research! ;)

Interesting thread - I've also been immersed in RV research for several years now, and we plan to purchase our coach later this spring. Although I like the Nexus and the Phoenix rigs, the Forest River Sunseeker 2300 seems to offer the most bang for the buck in a 25'class C: crowned fiberglass roof, azdel construction, large tank capacity (50,39,39), real queen bed (60 X 80) and a choice between Ford and Chevy. Also, since we intend to do some extended European touring I've chosen a slide-less floor plan - just not enough room for slide outs in the tiny pitches you run across in Europe. So, has anyone else checked out the Sunseeker? Regards, Mark... I have one on a Chevy, and we like it a lot. There are compromises that a prudent owner can take care of. One is the roof, and I want to address a common mis-impression, because some people assume it is truly one piece from eave to eave, but it isn't. Here is something I wrote previously. I have since Dicor'd the screws. =begin cut and paste= The Sunseeker roof is one piece of fiberglass. It is crowned. But it does not wrap over the sides. Instead they have a separate wrap corner piece, and seam covered with a typical roof trim strip, and of course where the sides meet the front and rear seams, there is a corner that catches water. It's not optimal IMO, but I will be closely watching and maintaining those seams. I have gone back and forth about applying Eternabond tape, but for now I think I will just stick with Dicor lap sealant and keep an eye on things. I need to put some Dicor over the exposed screws! Here is a photo of the top-side seam: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-orEJhB4zvMA/UwaXHn8GP3I/AAAAAAAABlg/Bi6OsySbcBc/s640/DSC_0062.JPG height=600

RE: Little Dogs

I never see a big dog barking out the front window of a Class A at everyone who walks by. But I can't walk around a CG without encountering a little dog doing just that. Yeah, it's probably the owners' fault, but it's easy to think it is due to the type of dog.

RE: Hole in grey water tank

Look at what is known as a wellnut. Available at any hardware store, and essentially the same thing as the OEM tank level monitor probes. Stick it into the hole, tighten down the screw or bolt, which pulls the back end of the rubber plug tight. I'd probably caulk over it when finished.

RE: Possible relocation to Minnesota questions.

Humidity is relative. (yuk yuk) I mean, anyone who lives south of I-70 in the eastern half of the US would laugh at what passes for a hot & humid spell in the twin cities. Even here where I am, 400 miles south of there, the summer in the t.c. would be a noticeable improvement. Whenever the happiness studies are published, MN comes out very near the top. I think they rank high on health too. People still do things in the winter, but a lot of them are indoors, no doubt. I'm sure a newcomer would do better by getting involved, making friends, and all that.

RE: Strange rating system

That was our exact experience at PPL too! A lot full of smelly RVs. I posted about it here and not everyone was happy with my report. :)

RE: Fastline me on RV LED's

I would guess there are differences between ebay offerings. I have bought several batches from the following seller, warm white, and have been very satisfied. They were not greenish yellow. Highly recommended. http://stores.ebay.com/duan-led2010?_rdc=1
