RE: Ok, time for a little humor for the dog thread!!

I once had a 10year old Blue Russian that had been de-clawed(front paws) before I adopted her. One day while sunning on the the front deck rail, a German Shepard came down the street and into my drive,right up beside the deck. He never saw the cat. My cat jumped off the rail, swung her back legs around, and locked on to the dogs snout. She rode that dog back down the street where he came from and about 5 minutes later walked back home like she owned the neighborhood. Love this one. I have some friends that have a declawed cat. It still kills all the squirrels and other rodents out of the trees in the yard. Claws or no. They don't even have to feed it much in the summer.

RE: Rats!

Don't use poison. It kills too many other things other then just the rats. Besides do you really want a dead stinky rat carcus hidden somewhere in your RV where you can't find it? Traps, or even live traps, are the best way. And I agree get rid of all the food that they can live on and move all the leaves away from the RV.

RE: Proven method to "Help" finance your camping trips

Wow, you guys do a lot of laundry! That's what I was thinking. I love the idea though. And, anyway of saving is good. For me, as a bachelor, at 3 dollars a load. I would be putting in the can only about 26.50 a month though. lol

RE: Fire Pit Question

I see at our local stores several different wood substitutes. Can anyone compare and contrast those? "Wood Substitutes"? What's that? Within context, the only thing I've seen that could be called a wood substitute is a propane fire pit. ? I think in some parts of the country they sell things like "pressed Logs" that are made from either saw dust, or some other sort of bio material. I've never seen them myself but, did see a video with a pressed log in it once.

RE: A couple litte videos of my 1971 Travel Trailer with no snow

Nice, and you can hear the birds chirping in the background. Been awhile since I heard that sound. Looks like the original floor has probably been covered by underlayment and new vinyl put on top. I've done that myself in a older TT.

RE: Pooper Scoopers... what do you use?

We use bread bags. We save all our bread bags thruout the year. One of the most useful tools ever. Hand inside, pick up dog dew, invert bag over hand, overhand knot and you're done. Great for leftovers too, also wet meal prep trash like potato peels. No end to their usefulness. They're a lot stronger than plastic store bags. And the only holes in them are the ones you put in them yourself (how many Walmart bags do you have to go thru to find one without a hole?). Yup, me too.

RE: A long Stinky Toilet story

It won't do any good but, I would complain to Jayco. And, there is a slim, quite slim, chance they might fix the problem on new trailers so that it doesn't happen to other people.

RE: One nighter, first tow with Ecoboost - Trip Report

Looks like a nice place. I love it when I have the campgrounds are not full or I can get the whole place to myself. Glad the new truck is working out well for you too.

RE: ? Dual Water Tanks Fill/Pump Questions

Humm, I would think the pump for sure would have to draw from both tanks equally. Otherwise when the first tank got empty the pump would suck air. I bet, the fill equally too. UNLess, there is a valve somewhere that you can throw to select one tank, the other, or both.

RE: Awning question

I don't use mine often. If I do use it as soon as I'm done I roll it up. No use letting the wind rip it off.

RE: Etiquette question

I would think the smell would make me hungry but, I have no problem with it. The only time the campfire was a problem was one time when I had some really wet wood. It didn't burn so much as just smolder. I put the fire out quickly once I discovered the problem but, it was too late. It stunk up my clothes and camper so bad I had to air them out for a week. After that lesson I am more careful with the wood I pick to burn.

RE: Should RV parks take cards as payment.

So how many of you actually have food stamps? It sure sounds like many here know a lot about them and how to use them.:) Never had them. But, I have a friend who's daughter broke up with her boyfriend and lost her job and got them for awhile to buy food for her 2 kids. Got emergency medical care when her daughter got pneumonia too. She is now married to another man and employed so she no longer gets any assistance of any kind. That's how the system is suppose to work. But, you never hear about those cases.

RE: Should RV parks take cards as payment.

Here in MN you do something like that and you are going to jail. And, they can't be used for alcohol and only can be used for some junk food. There was talk of making it illegal for them to be used for pop but, I don't know if they ever did that or not. And, they can not be used at ATM's or for cigarettes either. Some mini-marts don't even take them.

RE: Got our first trailer, now the fun begins

If this is your first TT go camping in your backyard once or twice to see what sort of things you want to bring and where you want to place them. Plan your first couple of trips close to home that way you are familiar with the area and know the best places to grab any supplies you decide you want to have.

RE: Where to park the trailer after check out or early arrival?

I think by some of these responses like the one from Gdetrailer I would find a different campground and not come back.

RE: Pulled over, what's the problem Officer

I was going to rent one of those trailers to haul a Tahoe on but the Tahoe was over on the rating the trailer would haul. I would think that would be way over. Like they say, "drive it likes its a rental" or was it "drive it like it was stolen"? Maybe it's a stolen rental.

RE: insurance on travel trailers

I get a discount by keeping all my insurance with the same company.

RE: Where to park the trailer after check out or early arrival?

It depends on the campground. The ones I frequent don't care if you show up early as long as no one is in that site. Same way with leaving later. I've been known to decide to stay another day and then just pay for another day. But, like I said it all depends on the campground.

RE: Pulled over, what's the problem Officer

I wonder how good of gas mileage he gets with that rig?

RE: Ok, time for a little humor for the dog thread!!

My brother used to have a black outside dog and a black outside cat. They always slept in the same dog house. In the morning you would look outside to see the dog setting in the door of the dog house and the cat setting right between his legs. It was a funny sight. They would even eat out of the same dish. But, the dog ate first. If the cat got to close; as he often did by slinking his way up there; the dog would reach out with one of his big paws and pin the cat to the ground until he was done eating. He wouldn't hurt the cat though and it seemed he always left a little food in the dish for the cat to eat after he was through.
