RE: Add me to the list of diabetic-dog owners....

Another suggestion: feed your dog a low glycemic diet. There are now several dog foods on the market that fit this need - without going the Rx kibble route. Low Glycemic Diet

RE: Our new trailer is junk.....

I'm so sorry to hear this. We had a similar experience (different issues, but junk trailer that had been at the dealer for months) with a new Passport many years ago. It ended up going back to the factory, and they forgot about it on their back lot for months... Contact the factory yourself and be polite but firm. If you are accusatory, they will be less likely to help you. The good news is that we finally got our trailer fixed and back to us. Good luck!

RE: decided on floorplan, now which manufacturer, need advice

Of the four you mentioned, I would go with the Jayco. A friend has a brother who works on RVs, and he's seen the least amount of problems with them, compared to other brands.

RE: nail file for my dog?

I have an 3-speed dremmel from Harbor Freight Tools. If your dogs have long hair, be sure not to get the hair caught up in the dremmel. You can pull a woman's knee high stocking over the nails up to the foot to get the hair out of the way, exposing just the nails. On my small dogs, I use the dremmel on low. When I had bigger dogs, I used it on medium. You can buy replacement sanding rounds at Home Depot or Lowes.

RE: weight distribution recommendation

I have used the Reese Dual Cam when we had larger TTs and never had any issues. My hitch guy likes this one and also the Blue Ox. He does not like the Equalizer hitch. He said that in his experience, they do very well when new, but they wear out faster than the other two.

RE: Ok to drive home from dealer without a Wdh?

Everyone is talking about damage to the truck. I'd also worry about sway without the WDH/sway control, unless the OP goes extremely slowly. OP, if you do it, please don't go where semis will be passing you.

RE: Looking for BH for my newer 06 1500 TV

Not sure if this one is too long/heavy for your truck, but it meets most of your criteria, I think, except for the t.v. placement: Coachmen Apex 288bhs.

Congratulation on your new camper!

RE: Help with new rescue

As a foster mom to small dogs, I strongly recommend crating. Be sure the crate is small enough so the dog can't poop on one end while sleeping at the other end. It should be just big enough to turn around in and lie down in. Also, even if you want to change kibble, it's a good idea to feed the dog whatever he's used to until the stressful transition time has passed. I don't know how many times I've had to feed a dog a kibble I hate for a few weeks, until the dog feels comfortable in my home. Stress can do a number on their little tummies.

RE: Considering a new TT, looking for thoughts/opinions

The manager at the campground where we keep our StarCraft has a brother who is a camper mechanic. We told her that we're considering upsizing our TT, and she said that her brother would tell us to get a Jayco. He's found that they have fewer issues overall, than other brands - FWIW.

RE: Outdoor Shower

I don't imagine the track will want water running all over the ground creating a mud pit. Take along baby wipes - they'll do for a couple of days.

RE: Moving from SC to MA in winter with small TT

Are campgrounds that far north even open that time of year? As an inexperienced driver on snow, I would be nervous driving my truck in that weather, much less having a TT attached. Store your TT in SC until the snow melts in MA, then retrieve it. If you insist on driving it up there during the winter, and I pray you decide not to, winterize before you go, and use the campground facilities for bathing, going to the bathroom, and refilling drinking/dish washing water containers.

RE: donn0128 -----new pup

Very cute pup! I agree that the travel, stress of a new home away from littermates, and different water can cause tummy upset. Did you change his food? Most breeders recommend keeping the puppy on the original food until acclimated to the new home, then changing over gradually (if planning on feeding something different). You could try giving him a spoonful of pure canned pumpkin (not pie filling) with each meal, or get a probiotic.

RE: Separation anxiety

SA dogs are tough. I used to have boxers, which are famous for this problem. I agree with getting medication from your vet to help, but increased exercise and mental exercise are also crucial. One walk a day for a mile isn't enough for this type of dog, IMHO. I would try 2-3 walks a day at 2-3 miles each (gradually work your way up to this level, so as not to injure your dog). Mental exercises will wear them out, as well. Google Brain Games for Dogs or Mental exercises for Dogs to get ideas. You may also want to consider enrolling your dog in agility class. Many dogs enjoy it, and it engages their brains as well as giving them (and you!) physical exercise.

RE: A-liners, anyone?

My husband and I are on our second Aliner. We first had an Aliner Classic, but found it a bit tight. We now have an Aliner Ranger 15, a poorer cousin of the Expedition. We love the built in cassette potty, the extra floor space (a 15 foot box, which is 3 feet longer than the Classic), the 60x80 queen sized bed, the outside shower, gas struts to help raise the roof, and the ease of set up (about a minute to put up the ceiling and side walls). It's a dream to tow - no WDH/bars needed with a half decent tow vehicle. I'm a member of a ladies camping group, and it's no problem taking it out by myself on those occasions. If you'd like to look at a small TT, I'd recommend looking at an R-Pod 178 or 179. One of the members of my ladies' camping group has the 178, and she loves it - tows it with a 4 Runner, which is similar to the Highlander you're considering.
