RE: what should my puppy chew

We just stopped her from chewing the peepee pad in her cage. If she only chewed on the p-pad, not her bedding for example, it may be that salt is an attractant. I've often thought that's why dogs are attracted to used shoes for the same purpose. Completely unsubstantiated of course- just my opinion. That said: For actual teething pups, I've used terry rags twisted tightly into knots, soaked in a very mild salt solution, well wrung out, then frozen. One will keep a pup busy for quite some time, no splintering danger. Reason for knot-tying is twofold: First, it lasts longer that way, but perhaps more important: In that shape it doesn't resemble any other household towel/object. I've learned the hard way that if you give a dog an "old" ANYTHING to chew on, it will forever after identify similar-looking objects as fair game.

RE: Cured My Double Towing State Law Issues, Pics Inside

Sweet! And $4500.00 seems like a really good price. Yes it was a good price, I hired a retired union worker that has been a welder and sheet metal worker for many years, he did not need to make much money, just wanted to stay busy and have fun building things, I acutely have a little over $5000 invested by buying the trailer valet and adding bunks for the boat and minor misc items but it still great deal compared to what other companies are charging. The best part about custom built is its not much longer than the Jeep and is a few inches narrower than the motorhome to make it as easy as flat towing, almost.. It is SO nice... I gotta tell ya that the description of the fella that did the build made me chuckle a bit- I'm married to a retired guy with welding skills. He's not as experienced as your guy, and just between you, me, and the enormous discard pile behind our shop, he still makes a few welding mistakes. He'd undertake a project like this in a heartbeat, but I'd bet it would wind up costing us twice what it did you! :B

RE: Bad Trip

I would be interested in knowing the year, make and model of both the truck and the trailer. (You might create a signature.) From the O.P.'s profile: 2006 F-250HD Diesel towing a 34 foot Everest Fifth Wheel.

RE: WA-OR-CA - Hwy 101 or I-5 in winter?

Vancouver Canada, I take it? December to March is sort of a long stretch, but assuming some mid point, I'd do I-5 to Portland then cut over to 101 for the rest of the trip if you want to avoid snow. It'll be wet and maybe windy, but it's a beautiful drive and traffic isn't at all bad that time of year.

RE: USB 120 volt outlet

Very simple to add a sheetrock box and a new receptacle.Don't know how thick the O.P.'s walls are, but a friend of mine ran into trouble doing that in his rig due to lack of enough wall thickness for a standard sheetrock box. One might need a shallow box, which will of course only work if the receptacle fits it.

RE: Thor Axis tire inflation

Sounds to me like a warranty issue, and best dealt with right away via a call to Thor or the selling dealer. Bad craziness to be unable to check the air!

RE: All I wanna know...

Well, here I am as usual with one foot planted in each century: I use an oldfangled electric percolator at home...but I have it plugged in to a newfangled digital timer that I took out of an otherwise defunct drip coffeemaker.

RE: Winning the RV campsite lottery

Anyone else feel like they've won the lotto with their campsites?We mostly boondock so play a different kind of campsite lottery, but I know what you mean about the feeling of Lady Luck sittin' on your shoulder. That's exactly the way I feel when I travel 300 miles to my favorite "secret" boondocking spot and it's actually EMPTY when I get there. I spend the whole drive telling myself that I couldn't possibly be that lucky again, and listing alternative sites in my mind, and telling myself I don't really care that much...but every time I roll up and there's no one camped there it feels like a monster stroke of luck. We're up to four years running without a loss on that spot! And now that I said that I've probably jinxed it for next year.

RE: Can a tire explode from Over-inflation?

I am certainly not going to tell them I plugged the tire...so not sure how they could attach liability to me. Not to mention the fact that I am confident in my work, so I don't think there would be an issue to start with. If anything I mitigated liability by setting the tires pressures to what they should have been. May I suggest that you ought to tell them? I think they have a right to know, especially if the repair consisted only of a plug. Since you say you patched the tire right on the car, is it fair to assume that a plug-from-the-exterior is what the repair consits of? I think that's considered sufficient for a temporary repair, but it's my understanding that the correct permanent solution is plug AND patch from the tire interior.

RE: What's the difference between regular and light 5th Wheel?

That whole "lightweight" thing is a bunch of malarkey, in my opinion. I think in just about every case, you'll find that the "lightweight" units are simply SMALLER. As you point out, construction is virtually identical. Take a closer look-see at those numbers; I especially encourage you to add up the cubic footage, then divide that number into the weight. Weight per cu. foot is likely nearly the same for regular and "lightweight" models.

RE: Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs.....

how about this sign that I see here in SW colorado..."Hill Blocks View" ..we laugh every time we see it! It's alerting you to be extra cautious since the hill/"hump" in the road ahead blocks the view of the road on the other side. http://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-zizhWPm0YH0/UfVLRmOBeBI/AAAAAAAAoG0/60EkH0B0Z7Y/s618/hill%2520blocks%2520view%25207-7-2013%25203-02-29%2520AM.JPG width=400

RE: National Park Vandal

(In case anyone cares, it's simple enough to opt-out of the political e-mail list.) I can vouch for that. I signed one other petition there, also after someone posted about another Park travesty here. I never get any mail since I "opted out".

RE: National Park Vandal

Could someone post the link to the petition, I'd like to sign.Here ya go! Count has increased by over a thousand since about 11:00 this morning Pacific time. Can't wait until the NATIONAL news gets ahold of this story.

RE: National Park Vandal

I hope they catch that tramp and make her pay :M :(:( "Tramp"?? wow... Wondering what lovely sexual epithet you assigned to the two moronic scout leaders who toppled the boulder? "Tramp" just means BUM to me. Works for either sex. And applicable in both cases!

RE: National Park Vandal

It is no less a crime to deface privet property as it is to deface public property. I agree, but would add that one rarely sees graffiti on a bush. ;) Beat me to it - unless of course the privet is not on private property. :BWhat if the privet is by a privy on private property? :B
