RE: Andy had surgery yesterday - update 3/26

Wonderful news! I've heard good things about Denamarin, so hopefully it will straighten out his liver issue.

RE: Its time to get ready

I'm in GA, and there's another cold front coming in tomorrow night. It's not too terrible (32-33 at night over the weekend), but it might be worse further north, as it moves up the coast.

RE: length addition

Definitely be careful in gas stations and going around buildings and corners! You may want to use truck stops, which are usually easier to get in/out of.

RE: Mildew on Awing

Another vote for Tilex. *Wet the awning completely on both sides with a hose sprayer, then spray Tilex on both sides. *Roll up awning. Leave for 20 minutes (set timer so you don't lose track of time!). *Unroll awning and rinse both sides well with hose sprayer. *Let dry completely before rolling back up. Also rinse side of camper in case any of the Tilex got on it. *Tip: wear old clothes and a hat in case any Tilex drips on you. Don't ask how I figured this out...

RE: New to Travel Trailers - Nissan Pathfinder V6 TV

Yes, my AR-ONE 14RB is only 7 feet wide. The Pathfinder has a very low frontal area limit - 60 square ft., if I remember correctly. A PUP would be a much easier tow with your family and all the stuff you'd be bringing along. BTW, I have driven my Pathfinder completely full, with 7 adults in 3 seats, and it drove fine (I did feel sorry for the 2 in the third row - lol!). However...I would not want to load it up AND tow my TT.

RE: To sofa or no sofa

I prefer either a sofa or 2 recliners, rather than just a dinette. We sit on our sofa all the time.

RE: New to Travel Trailers - Nissan Pathfinder V6 TV

I tow a 2014 Starcraft AR-ONE 14RB with my 2010 Pathfinder. The camper only weighs 2517 lb. (dry) and has a 312 lb. tongue weight. I would definitely NOT pull much more than this with it. The suspension on the Pathfinder is super soft, and even with my WDH, it sags some. I need to get air bags to help out. With the WDH, it pulls well. I have an additional sway bar, so it is still okay when passed by semis on the interstate. If you need a small camper that is very light, check out this one: Palomini 179BHS. We wish we'd gotten the Palomini instead. It has a bike door and the top bunk can be raised up to transport bikes on the floor where the bottom bunk mattress goes. The slide makes it feel much bigger than it is. http://i.imgur.com/6TVj3EOl.jpg

RE: Switch to dry dog food?

I have a boxer, which has a similar digestive system (can you say GAS???). I've found that a moderate protein level helps, as well as a good brand of kibble. I was a long time Taste of the Wild fan, but recently, my senior boxer was having trouble holding his weight on TOTW Pacific Stream. I'm now transitioning him slowly over to Acana Chicken and Burbank Potato, and the change is already evident. He's pooing a LOT less already, even though I'm only at the 1/3 Acana 2/3 TOTW stage. Poos are still firm (another problem with boxers and other bully breeds). I have not noticed any gas, which is also a good thing. Fingers crossed that this improvement continues. Another kibble that may work: Acana Singles kibble. There are three different varieties to choose from. I may rotate all of these.

RE: Dogs wintering in Florida

Definitely have your dog on flea/tick protection as well as Heartworm preventative (hopefully already on this!). I use NextGard for fleas/ticks, and Heartgard Plus for Heartworms; both are chewables. They work well for us down here in the deep south. We bought folding beds at Camping World for our little dogs, which we put in their x-pen. It keeps them off the ground and out of the sand. We also use the top half of an old beach umbrella to shade them from the hot sun. Here's a photo to better show what I'm talking about: http://i.imgur.com/yaRRrosl.jpg

RE: It's that time of year!

Love the updates and photos! Please keep them coming. I agree - we need a LIKE button on this forum. You're having some rough luck this season with lambs dying. Sorry about your eww, too. Could it partly be to blame from this terribly wet/cold mess you're suffering through, weather-wise? Love your Great Pyr! A friend of mine runs a Great Pyr rescue in my town. Lord, they love to roam! Glad yours has a job that keeps him busy. I wish people would realize that they're not the typical couch potato house dog...

RE: **UPDATE** Strange Rescue Organization Encounter

Sorry the rescue didn't let you know that the match wasn't a good one. Unfortunately, many boxers tend to be prone to severe separation anxiety, and this was probably why you were denied. This dog may be one of those dogs that literally needs someone around 24/7. This, and their destructive natures when left alone is why so many end up in rescues, IMO.

RE: rPod vs. ?

Also: my Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport Ext. cab has a tow capacity of 6500# and a tongue weight capacity of 640#. Not stuck in the rPod class if I wanted to go a little bit bigger. I've towed with a Tacoma before - a 22 ft. 3500 lb. (dry weight) TT. I don't remember the hitch weight, but I wouldn't have wanted to tow anything bigger with it, no matter what the tow limit says on the truck. It's a small, lightweight truck with a short wheelbase. I ended trading it for a Dodge 1500 HEMI and was much happier. I'd keep your choices in the R-Pod size or Trail Manor size. You could also look into an Aliner Expedition with the potty/shower/Cool Cat options. It tows like a PUP, but assembles into a hard-sided camper in about a minute once on site.
