RE: Thoughts, Opinions and...HELP!

My RAM 1500 HEMI is rated for 8850 lb. and I wouldn't tow either of those TTs. You'd be much happier/safer making sure that you don't tow more than 75% of your truck's tow capacity. For your truck, that would be a gross weight of 6,225 lb. That includes the TT, the WDH, battery, propane, your family, and all of your stuff. I'd stay 5500 lb. dry weight or under.

RE: Rabies in North Georgia

Thank you Dr. Doug for this information. I live in GA, and it hasn't been on the news here in the ATL area.

RE: Who drives? Him or her?

I'm a woman, and I've been towing something since I was 16, starting with a two horse trailer. DH and I started camping in 1997, and I do all the towing and backing, because I'm used to it and enjoy driving. My husband enjoys riding and reading. We've had everything from a popup to a big fifth wheel over the years. Once we get parked, disconnected, and leveled on a site, DH takes care of the outside setup, and I take care of the inside.

RE: vet prices

I thought my vet was expensive, but now I know it's common. I took my little Maddie in for her yearly physical, heartworm test, fecal test, Dhpp, and Canine Influenza vaccines yesterday, and paid $178. I declined bloodwork, which would have increased the total. Currently, I only do bloodwork every couple of years. If I see a problem, or as she ages, that will probably change. I left my previous vet, whom I loved, several years ago when the office went corporate. When I went in after the change, the new office staff had no clue who I was (even after going in a few more times) and was very impersonal. They also pushed the yearly health care packages at each visit, which I declined every time. It got old. I left.

RE: Torn between a Springdale and Autumn Ridge

One thing to consider: StarCraft has a two year warranty, whereas Keystone only has a one year warranty.

RE: Irritable Bowel Syndrome in Dogs

First and foremost - every dog is different, I think we'll all agree. With that being said, I used to have boxers, and they seem to corner the market for IBS, colitis, etc. - a very high maintenance breed, digestive-wise. I found that I had to feed a limited ingredient, grain free, fish based, moderate protein and moderate fat kibble (Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream worked well for my boxers), along with digestive enzymes (the only one that worked for my dogs was Mercola Digestive Enzymes for Pets) to keep my dogs' guts happy. This company also makes a good probiotic, but I found that the digestive enzymes worked better for my dogs.

RE: Newbie here Looking for a light weight TT for 5 suggestions?

RE: Forest River Salem 27DBK for a first TT?

I'd go with the Jayco you mentioned, if you can afford it. Jayco has a two year warranty and a good reputation. Also, don't buy a cheap WDH (weigh distribution hitch). You'll regret it. Go with a good one, such as Blue Ox, Equalizer, or Reese Dual Cam. Have fun camping!

RE: Problem with new trailer, or is it the grandson?

Sounds like the child's mother took care of business afterwards, so I doubt the kid is a spoiled brat. Jeesh.

RE: Got new fur baby and now have to make change in vacation

Not real close, but a couple of places come to mind. One is Fort DeSoto, a Pinellas County park with a campground on the Gulf at the base of Tampa Bay. Be sure to book the dog section. Another waterfront option on the Gulf is at Turtle Beach, a Sarasota County park and small campground. A bit pricey and hard to get a res. Another is Oscar Scherer State Park just south of Sarasota, though not waterfront. Lots to do in the area...the beaches are close, there's kayaking at the park, the Ringling Museum, Mote Marine Lab, much more. Sun n Fun in Sarasota is very pet friendly, but not on the beach. It has two dog parks! BTW, the Turtle Beach campground does not accept pets at all. That's the only reason we've never tried to make a reservation there. Oscar Scherer SP is nice, but is not on the beach. You'd have to drive about 15 minutes to get to a beach from there. We're staying there in October.

RE: Over weight Rottie

Feed less and cut out treats/extras. Supplement only with a couple of tablespoons of no-salt green beans at each meal to add filling fiber. A couple of baby carrots at night for dessert - not too many, as they are high in sugar for a veggie. Nothing else. Go for 3 shorter walks per day, rather than one long one to ease the stress on the dog's joints. Consider switching to a grain free/low fat kibble. I've seen good results with Annamaet Lean, and also with Fromm Gold Coast Grain-Free Weight Management Dry Dog Food. You can get them on Chewy.com if you can't find them locally (only available at pet food stores - not Petsmart or Petco). Don't feed what it says on the package - the companies are trying to sell dog food!

RE: Towing speed for small pop up ?

Don't travel above your tires' safe speed rating.

RE: Traveling with animals to Fla. Keys -Screw Worm

Thank you for the heads up. We will be traveling to Bahia Honda at the end of March, so we definitely need to be vigilant.
