RE: Mitsubichi outlander V6

Please don't do it! I towed a PUP successfully years ago with a Mitsu Endeavor (3500 lb. tow limit). I wouldn't tow a TT with one, and your Outlander is a smaller vehicle. You're only 500 lb. under the limit. Your transmission won't last long. Also, remember you have to stop the thing, not just pull it. A TT is like pulling a sail into the wind. Also, take your vehicle's tongue weight limit into account. Even with a WDH, you're likely to be over its limit. This may not be scientific, but it's worked for me for years: I take 1000 lb. right off the top of my tow limit when towing a TT to account for the wind drag. I currently pull a 2705 lb. TT, 315 tongue weight, with a 2010 Nissan Pathfinder, with a WDH - 6000 lb. tow limit. I can feel it behind me, and wouldn't feel comfortable towing more than 3500 lb. with it - and it's built on a Frontier (truck) chassis...

Glad you got some good news, just when you really needed some! :)

RE: My Boy's Sick ...

Upon Googling both, cramping and diarrhea was listed as possible side effects of Fluconazole. Constipation was listed as a possible side effect of Tramadol. Nothing was mentioned about frequent urination for either one.

RE: Dog Crap

If I see someone leaving their pet's waste, I politely walk up to them and give them a poo bag and encourage then to please use it, citing health concerns. I don't really care what they think of me...

RE: My Boy's Sick ...

Is he on prednisone? This medication will make them have to urinate a LOT!

RE: Big changes with a broken heart (Little Update)

OP here. Well, It's early and I'm checking my RV net forum family. Vicariously enjoying your camping stories. Anyhow, after DH's death, I am unable to physically manage hitching/driving my 25 ft TT with our TV. Family is unable to use it for now, and I made the decision to let it go. I was able to find a local car dealer that would take the whole deal in trade for a car-they were even nice enough to come pick it up! Well, the new car won't be here for a couple of weeks, so the TT is still in the driveway. It hurts to have to walk by it every day. I started thinking about the suggestions to get a small Aliner trailer. As it so happens, the car that I'm buying is a Subaru Crosstrek. I was checking online and found some videos(link isn't working for me this morning) of the Crosstrek towing Little Guy, Tab trailers. That gave me a little jolt of excitement. The RV show is in January. I was thinking last month that I would never be able to enjoy the show again, but maybe I would like to look at the small trailers? Glad you're considering a small trailer! Please look at the a frames. They tow like a popup (easy to tow, more aerodynamic), but give plenty of room for one person when set up (more head room than a @TAB, and the kitchen is inside, rather than at the rear of the trailer. As long as your new car is rated for 3500 lb. and has a tow package, you're good to go. If your car doesn't have a tow package, look into having a transmission cooler installed. Yes, definitely join the a frame group on Facebook - I'm still a member, even though my husband and I sold our Aliner. It's a great group of people, and there are many women who tow one that are members of this group! Simply enter A Frame Campers in the search bar once you log onto FB and the group should pop up. The various brands included will be in parentheses. Click on the Join button and it shouldn't take long to be approved. You don't have to own one to be approved. Many people join to find out more about them!

RE: Update on My Macy

Glad Macy's okay! Yup, dogs know who's in charge, for sure. My dogs never move when DH gets up in the morning (even if he tells them to get up and go out with him), but when I simply start stirring, three excited dogs start circling the bed - lol! Of course, I'm the one who feeds them, lets them in/out repeatedly during the day, etc....

RE: What's the deal on pork and dog food?

Every boxer I've ever had had room clearing gas if on a high protein/high fat kibble. If I feed a moderate protein/fat kibble (ex: 25% protein, 15% fat), then the dogs don't have the gas problem. What has worked for all my boxers is Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream (no other variety). I've also started adding Mercola Digestive Enzymes to my current boxer's kibble - amazing stuff (recommended on a boxer forum I'm a member of)! I got mine at Vitamin Shoppe (also available online). It's a powder that you simply sprinkle over the top of the food. Mercola Digestive Enzymes for Pets

RE: What's the deal on pork and dog food?

My allergy dog does best on a kibble called Back to Basics Hi Protein Pork (grain free). It has pork meat and organs in it. Back to Basics Hi Protein dog food Acana now makes a limited ingredient kibble with pork in it, as well. Acana Pork and Butternut Squash

RE: Membership discounts

We have Good Sams because we camp frequently at a Good Sams Park as our hotel room near where our handicapped son lives. Because of this, the membership pays for itself every year. Otherwise, we probably wouldn't have it, b/c we tend to camp in state/federal campgrounds for pleasure. We don't use Pilot/Flying J as much as the name brand stations (Shell, BP, etc.) so we can get gas with the extra additives in it. We buy things occasionally at Camping World, but their prices are high, IMO, even with the discount. We wait for sales. If you get a membership to any of the mentioned camping discount organizations, be sure that you'd use it enough to be worth the membership cost.

RE: Odd questions

Check inside your camper, too. On another site I'm a member of, the person found them inside her camper when she was cleaning it out after a trip, including under her mattress. She became totally unglued, to say the least!

RE: Sad day...trailer sold out of the rv family for now

A sad day, indeed. We tried that route - only lasted a few months, lol! I hope you get a new camper sooner than later!

RE: Dogs for free

Please be careful giving your pups away! Dog fighters look for dogs like this to use for bait dogs - VERY common in the south, unfortunately. Contact a rescue in your area and see if they'll take them.

RE: Glad For 2 Year Warranty

Our camper was ready yesterday after only a week! The dealer called and said we could come and pick it up anytime. I went yesterday to get it, and the repairman came out to help me hitch it up. He was super nice, and he made sure that I was satisfied with the repair. He had replaced the couch frame cross braces and added additional support braces underneath each cross piece (which he said should have been there to begin with, in his opinion). The freezer door inside the little fridge was also replaced. While looking at the rebuilt bracing under the couch, I joked about the pitiful hole in each of the storage compartment covers under the couch and dinette seats (where you're supposed to be able to stick your finger in to lift them up), so he looked at them. Each one looked like someone had simply gouged out a tiny hole with a small screwdriver (smaller than even a pinky finger) - impossible to lift up the wood cover. The guy had to get out his knife to pry the couch piece up at an edge. He shook his head and went to get his drill. He drilled out a nice small hole in each of the three pieces, so I can access the storage areas easier. I can't say enough good things about Peco Campers in Tucker, GA! While chatting with the repairman, I found out that he used to build Monacos in Indiana before they closed! He's used to the high-end stuff, so the lack of quality in my cheap little camper aggravated him greatly - lol! I'm praying now that these annoying issues are behind us, at least for awhile, and that we can enjoy using our camper! We have a trip planned for mid-October and can't wait!!

RE: Big changes with a broken heart (Little Update)

I'm so sorry for your loss and your pittie's aging problems. Prayers sent for your comfort. {{{Hugs}}}. If, in the future, you want to consider camping again, please look at a frame campers (Aliner, Chalet, Flagstaff, Rockwood). There are many single women who have these and they're very easy to handle, set up (some even have lift assists), and tow. Many of them fit in a garage, saving storage fees. Their price is also relatively modest. They can be towed by a smaller vehicle, as well (as long as it can tow 3500 lb.). They are hard sided pop ups - no canvas.

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.
