RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Been reading post on the Montana forum concerning the wiring for the circuit breakers and now I am afraid as many have said there is no rhyme nor reason as to how these units are wired just depends on how the guy was feeling that day and who wired it as to how the job was done.

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b251/Dixieflyer2/005.jpg Look close at the picture and see the breaker in line before the two 50 amp breakers. Is that an 80 amp breaker already in line?

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

https://i.imgur.com/JIbixQZl.jpg This is what it looks like installed and in line with the other 50 amp breaker. So you have an 80amp breaker in line with a 50 amp breaker.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Richard, the maximum amp breaker for a camper is a double pole 50 amp which gives you effective 100 amp service to the trailer. The double pole 80 amp breaker is to much. It will give you effective 160 amp service which is no protection for your trailer, you would burn up the wiring in the trailer before it would trip. Glad the doc gave you a good bill of health. The always fuss at me about my cholesterol. According to the folks on the Montana forum they have installed the 80 amp breaker in line with the standard 50 amp breaker and haven't had any problems. So I am not replacing both breakers but just one. Hopefully this won't be a problem down the road. wiring should be sized for the breaker being installed. Your power cord from 80 amp breaker to the camper will not be protected. Okay I will check into that before installing the 80 amp breaker

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Last night we went to a church Christmas party at a friends house. They have a lab rescue name Gracie that has just come to live with them a few months ago. She is huge and just so friendly. She has this thing with napkins as she will come to the table and steal your napkin and run off with it. Needless to say everyone at the dinner table had a problem keeping their napkin. Dixie is in so much trouble. Yesterday she was put outside while a repairman was inside working on the hot water heater. Turned out to be a thermostat malfunction. Anyway Dixie took one of Sue's pot full of Pansies and destroyed them, Then she chewed on the nose of the wooden bear we got at the Old Fella Rally two years ago. She was shameful for what she had done, but not for long. She then this morning found a way to get into the bathroom where we keep Izzie's food and cleaned it out. She is in timeout right now waiting on someone to release her out of jail. It was 23 degrees this morning and we will have a high of 53 degrees today, a repeat of yesterday. I hope everyone is having a blessed day so far and you are just about ready for Christmas day. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Merry Christmas.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Went out to the camper turned the hot water heater on and showered. I keep heat on in the camper all the time so the interior was warm. I use two electric heaters to keep the camper warm so stuff won't freeze. Sometime I will go to the camper to watch football games. Makes its nice to have a place to just to get alone and find some peace and quiet from Dixie. Sue ordered a 80 amp circuit breaker for the camper for me from Amazon for $32.00. Locally she priced the breaker for $148.00 each, pays to shop. Today the high will be 53 degrees with lots and lots of sunshine. I need to go shopping for Sue's Christmas present some time soon. I know what I will get her so at least that much is done. The fur babies are well. Dixie is looking for me to go some where or done something that she can participate in. She would really like for me to sit down so she can get into my lap. Went to the doctor yesterday for a check up and all is well. Doc told me for an old man I was doing well. He wasn't happy with my LDL as it is high so cut back on fatty food and take more Cholesterol medicine. Looking forward to the weeks ahead and Christmas day. I love this time of year. I just wish Christmas in in June instead of winter. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Merry Christmas and be sure to stuff a stocking for the fur babies for Christmas day.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Did you check the pilot? Most water heaters now have electronic ignition, so you can also check the plug and the circuit breaker. First thing I did was check the circuit breaker in the power box. Its the thermostat that's gone bad. No hot water at all. Its electric, no pilot light. If it were one of the heating elements the water would be warm, but its very cold. The hot water heater is seven years old, bummer.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It's not as cold this morning at 33 degrees, but that is still cold by Deep South standards. The high today is forecast to be 57 degrees, not bad. Its quiet this morning as I am up early and by myself. I have a doctors appointment this morning so I was up at 6 0'clock. Sue, Suzie and Dixie are still asleep. Izzie greeted me in the kitchen wanting his breakfast so he has been fed. I am really enjoying the fireplace this winter as it makes a nice cozy setting to relax in and enjoy the day. Dixie keeps me warm as she lays on my lap, or if I am on the couch she will snuggle up close to my chest and just stay there as long as I am still. Never had a dog so loving. I hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas season, what a wonderful time of the year. So many beautiful decorations with the home so lit up with Christmas lights. Love it. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Yes we have a Marley in the house, but she is much smarter than the movie Marley. She does know the difference between me playing and me angry. This morning she was after Suzie's treat bowl. When I eat cereal I always give Suzie first chance at the milk left in the bottom of the bowl. Then I pour a little for izzie and then I pour some for Dixie. Always making Dixie wait for her portion trying to teach her some obedience, Well this morning Dixie wasn't going to have any of it as she was determined she was getting hers first. Well there was some scuffling and foot swinging and some cursing this morning as the battle went on between canine and human while Suzie watched trying to stay clear of any foot swinging, cursing and milk sloshing out of a bowl on the floor. Meanwhile I am sure I heard Izzie laughing with a special cat meow seeing Dixie getting her due. After the melee Suzie wasn't sure she wanted anything to do with the bowl of milk. With some coaxing and telling her it was okay for her to take her turn at the bowl of milk she finally drank her treat. Then Izzie got some and finally Dixie got some. When it comes to food Dixie is like Hobo, nothing will stand in the way of getting food unless it is a short white haired old man yelling "No!" Dixie now answers to three names. Clover, which was her name when we got her. Dixie, which is the name we gave her and NO! It was 23* here this morning. cold for the Deep South and our high today will be in the mid 40's. I brought extra fire wood up to the porch yesterday anticipating the colder weather last night and this morning. Last night I lay on the couch with Dixie watching Christmas stories on the Tv while enjoying a fire in the fireplace. Sue's phone is on the blink so she doesn't have one right now until she can go find out what is wrong with it. Dandy Dan is having a test this morning at the hospital to find out why he is losing weight. Our prayers go out for him and Lori. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Merry Christmas to all and God bless your day.

Some good news for Old Fella. They received a grant for fifteen thousand dollars from a Community Service Organization in North Augusta, SC.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is a brisk cold morning here in the Deep South. Just outside of Atlanta there was lots of snow still on the ground from the weekend snow storm. It stretched all the way into South Carolina. Sorry we missed it. but glad in a way we did. This is the second snowfall in December since we moved here. The last one was on Christmas day, beautiful. On the way home Dixie was chewing of anything she could find. She chewed up the plastic tag for her ID chip. She somehow managed to get her teeth on it while still attached to her collar. She chewed the plastic lock for the seat cover that was on the back seat. She chewed through the belt that hooks into the seat belt and fastens to her collar to secure her in place while ridding in the truck. She chewed on Suzie until Suzie had enough and put her in her place. Then she tried to get into the front seat until Sue finally had enough of that and put an end to it. Finally we got home and she was free to do run and run and run until she was exhausted. Suzie went into the house got on her bed and dared Dixie to come close. Now its time to stay home and celebrate Christmas with the rest of the family, friends and church family. I am looking forward to this Christmas as Sue and I celebrate life and health and all the blessing that God has given. The house looks like Christmas with all the decorations and the Spirit of Christmas in every where. I wish for all of you a very merry Christmas and may you enjoy the season of Christ's birth. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

Walter this is what the circuit breakers look like. They are located in the front compartment where the battery is located and all the other hydraulic stuff is. https://i.imgur.com/QYdkA0Il.jpg

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good evening everybody. We had a great trip to Blakely, Georgia. Kolomoki State Park is a neat little Georgia State park. It is small but very nice. Walter something for you to check into. Our Montana's reset circuit breakers stared to fail in the cold weather. The slides would start to work and the circuit breaker would trip, then reset, then trip again. This went on while trying to retract the slides and operate the landing gear. Called Camping World and was told the 50amp breakers are not enough in cold weather as the hydraulic fluid thickens and causes the pump to work harder to push the fluid through the cylinders. Thus a fix for this is to install 80amp breakers which requires heavier wiring. I understand this is a fix recommended by Key Stone who makes Montana. Walter if your slides and landing gear works off of a hydraulic system you need to check and see if your have 50amp breakers or the new recommended 80amp breakers on your new unit. The 50amp works fine for a while then in time will fail. Had this problem with our other Montana. Dandy Dan and myself replaced them one year when he was here. Anyway we had a great weekend even though it was raining and cold for most of the time. We got snow at home Thursday night and Friday so we missed that. We went down to Blakely using the back country roads. It was scenic and slow going so coming home we took the interstate roads going through Atlanta and made great time, no a slow down any where. The only problem is there are no rest areas between Columbus, Georgia and the South Carolina line which is over two hundred miles. It looks as if Georgia has closed many rest areas along the interstates. Okay I am tired so I am going to call it a night. Merry Christmas.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Today will be a mild day but the weather is fixin to turn very cold. We are headed South for a few days so maybe we will be in the warmer part of the country. Robin lives is South West Georgia right on the Georgia, Alabama border, not far from Florida and the Gulf Coast. We will be there until Monday and then plan to head home. Our granddaughter Holly is leaving for Tanzania Christmas day going on a missionary trip. So please keep her in your prayers as she travels that she will have a safe trip there and back home. Dixie is still here along with her youthful energy and enthusiasm. Suzie went to the vet yesterday for her eye infection. She was given some eye drops to be given twice a day for a week. Her eyes looked much better yesterday so hopefully she is on the mend. Izzie got us up this morning telling us he was ready to eat and it was time for us to get up. This stirred up Dixie so she wanted out of the crate and then Suzie started the dance to get out. Hope all is well with everyone and you are enjoying the Christmas season. I am so grateful that God has given me one more Christmas to celebrate with friends and family. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Merry Christmas.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

oh oh what did Dixie do now She loves to go into the bathroom and pick up Sue's house slippers and chew on them. When she gets quiet she is chewing on something.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

You lay down in the peace and quiet. As you lay there you realize something is amiss, but what? Then you are jolted out of bed realizing its too quiet and there is trouble. That's what happens when you have a one year old loose in the house. Merry Christmas everyone.
