RE: My Boy's Sick ...

Thanks for the update, Lance. I hope the meds start kicking in soon. It's so worrisome when our fur babies are sick.

RE: Found Our Camper

I'm afraid you'd get crushed on either a trade or a sale right now. The depreciation starts as soon as you sign the papers... You need to decide if it's worth it to have your old camper back.

RE: Pet peeve

We just went through a very bad case of this this weekend. Duck hunting season started this weekend and every damned idiot with a Lab was in the park and not a single one was leashed. At one point I counted 23 dogs running loose within a stones throw of my site. I couldnt even take my dog out to go to the bathroom until it was dark out. We even had one come right up to our picnic table while we were trying to eat. The wife started throwing rocks at it to chase it off. The owners reported us to the rangers. When the rangers came back to ask us what was going on I quickly handed them the slip of paper with the rules on it including the leash length and requirements of one. As I handed it to them I told them to look around and all at the same time I opened the door on the camper and let my rotti stick his head out the door. I then turned and asked if they would like to enforce the rules or can I turn him loose as well. They walked around and infomed everyone of the rules. As soon as they got in the truck and drove off the dogs were all runnig loose again. I'm afraid I would have left. Too stressful, which is not what I expect when I go camping. I'd rather be home than endure that. How sad for you and your family/dogs!

RE: Bedding

We use what we like on our bed, saving the original for when we sell/trade. Nothing original to a camper is ever thrown away, because buyers/dealers usually like to have all original equipment.

RE: Petting Dakota

Sounds like a great dog! Can you take him for a walk? He sounds like he's got some excess energy that needs burning off. Our rescue boxer, Jackson, doesn't like going out without us either. I think it reminds him of being out on the scary streets before he got picked up by animal control. He especially won't go out in the dark, unless one of us is right with him.

RE: Suggestions for a new(er) larger TT

One more: LivinLite Camplite 16tbs Don't be fooled: this one has twin beds, but they convert easily to a king size bed! It's not a walk around, but you don't have to crawl over each other to get out either. The 2 person dinette is on a small slide. These are pricey, b/c they don't have any wood in them to rot, and they're super light.

Another possibility: Coachmen Apex 214RB

RE: Update on Jackson - The Old Man's Aches and Pains

Thanks Renee! I love the seniors, and yes, Jackson's house trained, leash trained, etc.. He's also nice and calm, which is a miracle for a boxer - lol! Age definitely has its benefits in this situation. I'll take a few short years with a senior dog over the craziness of a puppy anyday!!

RE: Pet peeve

When a dog's tail is up, especially if it's arched highly, it's a sign that the dog is on high alert, not calm, happy, and relaxed. A tail that's level or slightly down, and ears that look relaxed, shows a more relaxed dog.

RE: Does Little Missy Foo Foo need a friend

Sher, I've had two neutered males several times with no issue, but I won't have two females. They tend to be very territorial. Sometimes they're okay until they both reach maturity. Some female/female pairs are okay forever, but when they're not, it's not pretty!

RE: Jake pooped in the pet store tonight! :(

I have a female, Maddie, who likes to mark - yes, a female... She's not reliable in a pet store - loves to pee on bags of dog food, no less... I don't take her anymore, unless there's no choice, and then I carry her, the little stinker!

RE: Pet peeve

I'm super vigilant on walks, looking ahead for loose dogs. If I see a loose dog, I turn immediately and walk the opposite direction, yelling at the top of my lungs, "Please come get your dog - NOW!" Fortunately, I don't remember the last time I've had this problem. If the owner isn't cooperative, I'd have no problem in reporting him/her to management.

RE: Does Little Missy Foo Foo need a friend

I can't imagine only having one dog - lol! If you want another dog - not just to give your other dog a companion - then go for it! I'd get a male, to avoid any female/female issues.

RE: Update on Jackson - The Old Man's Aches and Pains

Pops - lol! The supplement we currently have Jackson on is Cosequin DS plus MSM. He's on the loading dose for a few weeks, then will cut back slightly after that, according to the directions. I've also considered trying Dasequin plus MSM, as I've heard it works well, too. When he gets up lame, he isn't just stiff, he visibly limps on the one front leg. The Metacam is helping, so we'll keep him on it for the foreseeable future.

RE: Glad For 2 Year Warranty

Hard crowd here. When you buy a camper you buy it with a brand name on the side, they bought the parts they wanted to buy. They hired the help they wanted to hire to build the trailer. The trailer manufacture decides who sells their product and who services it under warranty. Ultimately it is their product and when something goes wrong it is their problem. Unfortunately too many people never accept responsibility for their own actions and now that attitude seems to be acceptable towards manufacturers as well. Many feel the original manufacturer has no responsibility for the vendors they use. I say that this attitude is wrong and the companies who share that attitude will not survive. If I buy a product from a company with this kind of attitude, it will be my last purchase from them. To say Starcraft is not responsible for your fridge problem is wrong. Most likely since it is a door alignment problem it was damaged during installation. The couch problem is either an installation problem or a defective couch. Either way it is a Starcraft problem since they are part of Jayco who builds their own couches (or at least the use to). While many products like the furnace, stove, microwave, AC. fridge, water pump all are warranted by their respective manufacturers, all these items will be covered by Starcraft during the trailers warranty unless they are specifically excluded. The only time you will have to contact the accessory manufacturers separately is when your Starcraft warranty expires and that item has a warranty that is longer than Starcrafts. New trailer bugs are bothersome and many RV manufacturers use the end buyer as quality control. I know the new trailers that I have purchased have been much more troublesome than the used ones. With the used ones the previous owner dealt with the new trailer bugs. Keep pressure on the dealer to make it right. It seems like many service departments have a tendency to forget about you if you don't keep asking how soon your trailer will be ready. Good luck! Thank you and AMEN!

RE: Glad For 2 Year Warranty

...because it looks like we're going to need it! We've only had our Starcraft AR-ONE 14RB for a few months, and we took it back to the dealer for the second time yesterday. This time, it's because the freezer door (inside the one-door fridge) won't stay shut. The spring is broken. Why? Who knows... Also, we looked under the little couch and noticed that the braces have pulled away from the frame at the top by about 1/2 inch, so eventually, I guess we'd have fallen through. The repair guy shook his head and said he'd probably have to rebuild the bracing b/c it wasn't put together and braced correctly to begin with. So...we're without our camper for a few weeks (the dealer has several campers to work on before ours), during the best camping season in the south... I've said it before, and I'll say it again, you get what you pay for. After everything's replaced/repaired, maybe we'll have a decent camper! Since it's less than 1 year even a NORCOLD has 1 YR warranty and Dometic refers have a 2 year warranty and those warranties apply to all new RV regardless of the RV manufacturer so I'm not sure what your point is:h Having say a Starcraft RV has absolutely nothing to do with the issue you're talking about here. You might do well to review and learn what, who and for how long the various things in your RV are warrantied for since you apparently don't understand this information yet. Larry Well, aren't you just a helpful soul? :R I've had several campers over the years, so I know how this game works. I KNOW all new campers will have some issues. This is, however, the first one that has been built this shoddily. I KNOW the fridge isn't Starcraft's fault. The two problems I've had with this brand new fridge (Norcold) have been unecessary and frustrating, IMO. It still doesn't cool as well as it should, but it's working better after it's first trip to the dealer. However, the couch being put together the way it was IS Starcraft's fault. The repairman at the dealer couldn't even believe how badly it was built. He plans on rebuilding the frame so that it's sturdy and safe. I have a good dealer, so I'm not concerned about them ignoring my camper. We've bought from them before, and they have a good reputation (shout out to PECO Campers in Georgia).
