RE: How long should I keep the pop-up open after rain?

It also depends on the humidity level outside. Down here in the steamy south, it can take awhile for anything to dry outside. I agree with putting Damp Rid inside. We keep one inside our TT and our hardsided PUP. They fill up in no time down here!

RE: The Importance of Pet Identification

Don't forget to keep the current info on file with the chip company or the chip is no good. Definitely! I help out with a couple of local rescues, and I can't tell you how many found dogs are chipped, but the information is out of date. With most microchip companies, you have to pay a yearly fee to keep the chip current. Also check your profile on the company's website when you pay the fee, to make sure all the contact information is still correct. My dogs' microchip company (Home Again) notifies me by email when it's time to pay the yearly fee. Having the dog wear an I.D. tag on his/her collar is also a good idea, but it's not fool proof. Many dogs lose their collars when they get loose (snag them on bushes, get into a fight with another dog, etc.).

RE: Picking up after pet - You are being watched!

You did the right thing not letting the confrontation escalate. Life's too short. In the other guy's defense, it can look as though a female is pooing when in fact, she's urinating. Maybe he's had one too many dogs poo on his sites and left it there. Still...

RE: Jayco Hardside Poip-Up

Congrats on your new camper! We have a 2015 Aliner Ranger 15, and we've had an Aliner Classic in the past. Please join the a frame group on FB. It's a great group of people who are very helpful for those learning the new lifestyle, as well as trouble shooting problems. FB A Frame Group

RE: Not a big enough trailer

Could you privately sell your TT once it's fixed, then find a used hybrid with 3 drop down beds? Along with a couch and a dinette, it could sleep a lot of folks.

RE: what is best dog for us

I agree with picking a breed on the smaller side. We board our boxer when we go camping (he's too big for our tiny camper, and he's large dog aggressive on leash), but we take our two little dogs with us (7 and 11 lb.). A dog 20 lb. or less would be my preference. Please adopt from a reputable rescue rather than buy.

RE: Lost our little traveling companion

I'm so sorry for your loss. She was obviously well-loved! Run free, sweet Chloe!!

RE: Frontline vs K9 Advantix

Frontline Plus and Frontline Tritak don't work on our dogs in GA for fleas. Nextgard (a chewable) works well, but is pricy, as does the Soresto flea/tick collar (as long as the dog isn't excessively hairy). We give our little dogs Nextgard, but use the Soresto collar on our boxer (due to cost of Nextgard for him). Don't use either of these if your dog is prone to seizures.

RE: Hard side series pop up?

We're on our second Aliner, a Ranger 15. We love it! It tows easily behind our 2010 Pathfinder and fits into nearly any site. If you're okay with small spaces, it's a great camper! Our Ranger 15 has a sofa/true queen bed (60x80), a nice dinette/single bed, a flushable cassette potty, a small fridge, a Fantastic Fan, a two burner stove, an outside shower, and decent storage. We've added a microwave, portable icemaker, coffee maker, additional storage containers for clothes and food, toaster oven, electric frying pan, grill, outdoor kitchen, Easy-up, a couple of small tables, and a screen room. It only takes about a minute to set up the camper walls, then about 15 - 30 minutes getting all of our "luxuries" situated. It's wonderful not having canvas! There's a FB group for a frames. Come on over! We're a friendly snd helpful bunch of folks!

RE: Dog's on furniture

X2 on crating the dog or otherwise keeping the dog away from the furniture when you're gone. Can you contain the dogs in your kitchen or other room with baby gates?

RE: Welcome, Ollie!

Congratulations! Ollie is so handsome!! Thank you for rescuing - labs are a dime a dozen in shelters (along with pitts) in our area. We've had two labs in the past, and they both made great family dogs. Once they turn 2-3 years old, they tend to settle down better. In the meantime, consistent training and loads of patience will help you keep your sanity - lol!

RE: Down Sizing A Pop-Up

We looked a a Casita (similar to a Scamp), but we felt claustrophobic. We recently bought an Aliner Ranger 15 (a hard-sided pop-up that can be put up in about 2 minutes - really!) with the cassette potty option and Cool Cat heat pump (11,500k a/c plus heat pump heater), and we love it! There's enough room for two (60x80 queen bed), plus the dinette makes into a roomy single bed when our granddaughter gets old enough to start coming with us! It fits into our garage, too. The Aliner Expedition is about the same size but has more standard options. Aliner

RE: How did you begin this hobby?

DH and I bought a tiny Coachmen TT as a way of having a place for our two kids and us to stay when we visited our middle child, a handicapped son, who lives 4 hours away from us. It also gave us and our other two kids a way to enjoy beach and mountain trips that we couldn't otherwise afford. Over the years, we've had several TTs, a 5ver, even a PUP. Now that it's just the two of us, we again have a tiny, very inexpensive TT that we keep in the town where our handicapped son lives to use as a "hotel" room when we visit him. We've recently purchased an Aliner Ranger 15 to use for actual camping trips - again, a great way to enjoy places we otherwise wouldn't be able to afford!

RE: New kid on the block

So glad you're feeling better! Thank you for taking in this handsome senior guy. His heart problem is likely genetic, especially since a dog you had from the same line had the same issue. I'm sure you'll spoil him rotten, as he deserves in his sunset years! :-)

RE: Coughing.....

I'd check back in with your vet. If it's kennel cough, it can take a long time to get over.

RE: Metabolic suppliment ?

I had good luck getting my MIL's cockapoo to lose half her body weight feeding Wellness Core Reduced Fat. I fed less than the bag suggested, and substituted no-salt green beans as a fiber filler. Treats were a few baby carrots each day (not a lot of those, b/c they're high in natural sugar). Make sure you're using a measuring cup to ensure the absolute correct amount fed. I also feed 2x daily, dividing the daily allotment into two portions. This makes the dog happier (a psychological trick making the dog think he's getting more to eat!), and it tends to keep the metabolism running a little higher. Cut out all high-carb treats - no dog biscuits, etc. Ignore pitiful looks!! Exercise is KEY however, in weight loss. Can you walk your dog either in the early a.m. or after dark when it's at least a little cooler? We have high temps in GA and FL too (July and August), and these walk times help keep the dogs from getting distressed. Start out slowly. My MIL's dog could barely walk around the block when I started her weight loss program, but eventually worked up to daily 3 mile walks and playing fetch (sometimes indoors if it was too hot outside). Bottom line: calories in - calories out. Weight loss should be a gradually thing, just like with humans, to be done safely and with lasting results. It took 6-7 months for Rosie to lose the needed weight, going from 28.2 lb. down to between 14-15 lb. (vet's recommended weight for her). If you can afford one, get a treadmill. Dogs can be trained to walk on one. Google the correct training method. It must be done very slowly, so as not to frighten the dog.

RE: Shadow Cruiser after 1 year of ownership

I wouldn't call these issues small! I would investigate the lemon law in your state.
