RE: Puzzled over battery boil over

RE: Took this last night

What type of camera did you use to get such a spectacular picture of something at night and 238,857 miles away? :B

RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

It's a tough decision any way you look at it. All my Great Danes had to be put down due to severe health issues or bloat early on in their years. Somehow that made the task a whole lot easier. When the time comes this will be my first one where their health and body is just fine but sadly their mind isn't. It will be tough. Take care, you will be in our prayers this week during this difficult time in your life.

RE: Kitchen Matches

RE: Kitchen Matches

Our "matches." http://r1.colemancanada.ca/ProductImages/Full/2000006804.jpg height=250 ditto x2 With the onset of these being sold everywhere and so inexpensive IMHO I don't ever see a need to have matches around anymore. As far as matches being safe stored in a MH where everything is jostled all over in a drawer? Who would of thought a 9 volt battery in a drawer would be dangerous? I watched a news report where a house burned down from a 9 volt battery.They showed that if you have a couple of battery's in a drawer or a baggie which most of us do all the time if they rub together they can create a fire. They showed how easy it happened......I went right to the drawer in my MH and took out all the loose 9 volts! http://www.kctv5.com/story/24594124/kctv5-exposes-the-9-volt-battery-fire-danger

RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

Jack was a rescue - we got him when he was almost a year old - rumor had it that he had run loose on the streets of Ann Arbor for months, and nobody had been able to catch him. *IF* "doggy dementia" is like Alzheimer's - and one goes back to their childhood? - it might explain the new aggression towards dogs and food and being "grabbed"? He does NOT want to be touched - not even brushed against. I'll be muzzling him before he ever leaves the car, to keep my Vet and her technicians safe. Thank you for posting about your dog. I am going thru my very first dog that has ever lived past 10 and it is all new to me all what he is going thru now at 14. He exhibits the same behavior as your dog. So I'm guessing it's just part of the aging process. He was an abused rescue also and the day I rescued him he chewed me up one arm and down the other! We came a long way since that day and he became my best buddy and we turned him around to the sweetest dog without incidence. But lately you can't just reach for him and pick him up or he will bite, "exactly the same thing he did when he was rescued". Reading your post I too see a lot of his behavior now is duplicating what he was like when he was in that abused home. Which we were so proud to have completely reversed. So maybe just like people with dementia who digress back to their younger years I am beginning to think dogs do too, also. The saddest thing just like your dog is he no longer wants to be around his best buddy. She just doesn't understand that at all. BUT, I now give him his space. He has given me 12 wonderful years. And I am still needed when dinner time comes around and of course THEN he wants to be by me. So I will savor this time just as I survived his first year teaching him that people really can be trusted. BTW. For us a half pill of Previcox every so often does WONDERFUL things for him. Sometimes it does way too much as he runs and bounces off the back of the couch. Just saying for us this pill eliminates all of his dementia frustrations and he is more comfortable and so for now we will run with that. thanks again for your post it's helped me understand that some of his behavior is just like other senior dogs aging. Your guy looks to be in very good condition for his age also. You must be doing something right with his food! :C

RE: Took this last night

THANK YOU! I stayed up all night to take a picture of it and dang if the clouds didn't come in and cover it. Hope you don't mind that I am going to copy it and save it so I didn't stay up in vain! :W :B

RE: Puzzled over battery boil over

You converter can boil over a battery in a heartbeat. Mine did. :( You need to check the output of the converter. And from my experience with 2 different RV mobile repair guys that both said my converter was ok. You have to leave the tester on 'after' it reaches the correct output. That's what the 3rd repair guy did and it skyrocketed off the charts. Which is why my battery was cooking. When we took it out one capacitor looked like someone shot it with a 22. Converter was still running but it affected 2 other things in my MH that no one thought to put two and two together to point to the converter. And like a three stooges movie every was 'convinced' the sulphur smell we got a whiff of every now and then was from a well I was parked next to. :S

RE: Chemicals for Black Tank

We've been using Potty Toddies for 18 years of fulltiming, in the same Carriage 5th wheel with the original tank, and have never had a problem. I drop one tap in the toilet after Dutch drains the black tank if the weather is 74 degrees or under. It it is above 75, I use two tablets. I buy them at Camping World. It is a no muss no fuss solution and what works for us. Hugs, Di X2! Not ever having traveled south in my MH the first summer I decided to stay in Florida I learned REAL quick about the "double dosage" chems for the black tank! :W:B

RE: First trip in the bank

Congrats on your first trip and good luck on many more! When adding Duct tape to your tool box......buy the white colored roll. Looks a whole lot better holding down the loose parts on your RV for the trip home! :W But then you wouldn't have that "Kentucky Chrome" look! ;) OMG! I never heard that one. That's a keeper! :B

RE: Clean water

We will taste the water after hooking up at the campground and if the water tastes good then we drink it. If it does taste funky then we turn the water off at the spigot and fill a container or two from the fresh water tank for drinking water and coffee. Then turn the spigot back on for flushing and washing. Water with dangerous bacteria levels in it does not taste any different than safe water. I full time so I am at different CQ's more than the average RV'er. AND my house had well water. So I am familiar with the pro's and con's of well water! CG's are NOT required to test their well water on a certain schedule as many campers seem to think. In general property with a well only gets tested when the property is sold. Unless a home owner chooses to have it tested for their own purpose. I tested my well water often and on several occasions had to disinfect it. And with housing your well has to be X amount of feet away from the septic field. >That said, CG property's have an average of 100 plus or minus campsites all with 'open' sewer hook ups running in conjunction with and very close proximity to water lines. The well is situated on the same property.< ^THAT scenario alone is why I do NOT ever drink water from CG hookups or when used to be filled into my holding tank. Holding tanks are just large petrie dishes. A minute amount of a bacteria, that your stomach normally could handle in the water when you put it in, will bloom in a holding tank to not safe levels. Add hundreds of open sewer connections, sewer dumping spills, the well on the same property and.....well...do the math of the % of incidence of contaminated water! :B

RE: Email List Problems Caused by Yahoo

When mine got hacked I traced it to a friend that has those 30 names attached to their emails so when they send an email it goes to all of their 30 friends. :R If anyone knows how to find the way to get 'all' the way thru the change password please let me know. I NEED to get in there so I can change some of the important stuff. Tks.

RE: Email List Problems Caused by Yahoo

I haven't been able to access my yahoo account for 2 months now.:( It says to set a new password and asks me my secret questions and answers and takes me all the way to you are good to go and then nothing. I've had that email hacked about 6 times too. Where yahoo locks it down but you could reset your pw not any more. Interestingly the new threat out seemed to only affect yahoo and google. I don't think they are rivals I think they are getting in bed together real soon. Link to what sites are affected needing pw changes: http://mashable.com/2014/04/09/heartbleed-bug-websites-affected/ YAHOO RESPONSE:"As soon as we became aware of the issue, we began working to fix it... and we are working to implement the fix across the rest of our sites right now." Yahoo Homepage, Yahoo Search, Yahoo Mail, Yahoo Finance, Yahoo Sports, Yahoo Food, Yahoo Tech, Flickr and Tumblr were patched. More patches to come, Yahoo says. GOOGLE RESPONSE:“We have assessed the SSL vulnerability and applied patches to key Google services.” Search, Gmail, YouTube, Wallet, Play, Apps and App Engine were affected; Google Chrome and Chrome OS were not.*Google said users do not need to change their passwords, but because of the previous vulnerability, better safe than sorry.

RE: Clean water

I do NOT ever drink or use the water for cooking from the RV holding tank. There's a whole nuther thread going on about that! Regarding coffee making: If you really want a GREAT tasting cup of coffee buy a bottle of 'distilled water'.(not the one from the baby isle that has a ton of junk added to it) Just 100% pure distilled water from the bottled water isle. Once you go distilled water for coffee you will never go back! http://www.smileygenerator.us/community/searchsmiley/c/working-coffee1.gif

RE: Beware of Fire and Check that Extinguisher date

Fire Department at an RV rally showed us all how the fire extinguishers provided in our RV's 'settle' to the bottom so when you grab them in an emergency they do NOT work. Their suggestion was to shake them routinely so that they actually work when needed.:R

RE: Happy Dogs From This Weekend

Thanks for sharing the pictures of a happy canine camping trip! I love seeing dogs being happy campers. Isn't this better than dropping them off at a kennel? One of the main reasons we bought our MH. We had 3 dogs, and the one was really old. He needed a lot of extra care, and there is no way I could have left him with anyone else. And you know, he had a blast camping in his senior years. X2! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/CAMPINGDOGSHARPCRISPONE-1.jpg

RE: Chemicals for Black Tank

The Thetford formaldehyde formula is the gold standard of blur juice. Don't even mess with the other perfumes. It's the only one that’s designed to work. MM49 X10! Nuff said, thank you! KISS THEORY Unscrew cap, pour down toilet, plus http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/PAPROLL.gif....and you are good to go....literally!:B

RE: toll roads

What I really dislike is the long toll roads where you pick up a ticket at the start. That part isn't too bad eliminates stopping all the time BUT if you get off before 'their' determined end the unmanned toll booth at the exit requires exact change......and the fact you don't know what the charge is for your MH and toad!:R

RE: Would you want to hear from the new owners of your old rv?

No way. Same reason I don't sell stuff to family members. ditto X2 I just sold my Toad all set up to tow behind a MH. My friend wanted it real bad but that was a big NO. He was my friend and I wanted it to stay that way. He's still a little ticked off but that will fade. The phone calls if it broke down from him wouldn't have.
