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

Good morning everyone. I hope all is well with everyone. I won't go into any detail right now but the motorhome may not be a done deal. There is a point that has come up that has to be cleared before we can accept the offer. So the saga continues until I hear back from them.:?:(

When I saw this news item, I immediately thought of you and Fella: Ultra-marathoner and stray dog Thanks Gary for the story. It is very heart warming to read this.

Better think long and hard about traveling Bear Tooth HWY. Bear Tooth HWY

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

Has anyone driven the beartooth highway in Yellowstone? We traveled just about every nook and cranny in Yellowstone back in 2003. I really don't remember any specific roads anymore, my mind is going blank. But when we came into Yellowstone we came in from Jackson Hole side and ventured down to West Gate. I don't remember too much trouble except the summer is the only time for road work so some of the lanes were closed down on some of the roads so traffic would be backed up in those construction areas. Don't miss the Tetons if you can help it, so beautiful. I have pictures of the mountains reflection on the lake, so nice.

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

I'm just curious as to what Foretravel would do with that slide? I know that Tennessee RV has really stepped up to the plate for you, Richard, and that is commendable. On our Tiffin I know if we've had recurring problems that don't seem to get fixed, we can always go back to the factory and they take care of it. It seems that no one can totally understand the units like the manufacturer. I'm curious if they could fix it. It wasn't ever wrecked or anything was it? Dale As far as I can tell the unit has never been wrecked or abused. There has been a problem with the bedroom slide from day one. Sometimes you run into a problem that defies all logic. That is the case here. What is believed to be the problem is the new seals aren't being made to quality as they should. Where the seal comes together in a seam is where it fails. James has put three new seals on and each time they have failed at the same point in the seam where a valve is located. The components for HWH are made in Iowa and they are talking about taking the coach to them to see if they can repair it. I am so grateful to be working with the people at Tennessee RV. They have really gone above and beyond anything I expected. Most dealers would have told me you bought it used and so it is your responsibility. In the retail business it is called an Arkansas Guarantee. If it breaks in half you get both halves. But not so with the people at Tennessee RV. They care about their customers and the reputation they build.

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

Good morning everyone. What a roller coaster ride this has been for the last nine months. I just thank God we had a dealer that rose up above and beyond the ordinary to help us through the motorhome episode. Keeping the faith and trust in God and in good people will always make you a winner. We will pick up the unit after we go to Knoxville next Tuesday and inspect it, drive it and place our okay on it. I really can't see anything going wrong with this transaction after all the care this has been given. The CEO of the dealership knows this unit and its owner personally and has put his personal guarantee on the coach and has promised that it is just like new. To sweeten the deal he is having new tires put on it. At 40,000 miles it should have a lot of life left in it. Now we are looking forward to what is left of the summer and especially the Old Fella Rally in October. Just as soon as we get it home and packed we will take off to Waynesboro, Waycross and down to Blakely, Georgia. By that time we should be ready for Sevierville. Tennessee and the Old fella Rally. The fur gang is well this morning and I hope all is well with all our friends and their fur babies. 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}

WOW, that is one awesome Dealer. If we ever decide to get something newer then our current MH I know I'm heading East. Just a thought, would they let you talk to the previous owner before you say YES? Yes they would.

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

I have been dealing with motorhomes all day and here is the deal. Tennessee RV has offered me a 2011 Phaeton 40QTH Tiffin motorhome with 40,000 miles, four slides, like new in place of the 2007 Foretravel. even swap with new tires on it. They just traded it in, hasn't even been on the lot yet. A free warranty for the life of the coach. What do you think? And if that is not what I want they will loan me a motorhome for now and on into the Rally at no cost. They are taking back the Foretravel and paying it off until I decide what I want to do. I'd grab that deal and never look back! Tiffin is a great coach - it's 4 years newer, with a warranty! Yup, that's what I'd do!!! I actually work in the industry (which I don't really publicize on this forum, lol), and the support you've gotten from Tennessee RV is incredible! I suspect they know how active you are on here! X2 Agree if the floor plan is what you want I would make the deal. There are a lot of them on the road. We are parked next to one now. The floor plan will fit us nicely, With a few more extra feet we have more storage. I am so relieved to have this mess behind us and so grateful that we were dealing with folks like Tennessee RV. I cannot say enough good about those people. We were never charged a dime for any work including the maintenance they did. I am so glad to find such honest people in the RV retail business. I am also thankful I didn't get angry with them and unload. Somehow I felt from the beginning they would do the right thing. If you are ever in the market for a new RV, Tennessee RV is the place to go.

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

sounds like a good deal but YOU have to be happy with it....drive it and see how it feels why was it traded in?? I was told this person trades often. He went to a 45 foot MH this time.

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

Another set back. Just talked with the people at Tennessee RV and the news is not good. They have replaced two seals and each time they have blown out. Replacing the air manifold didn't work. James says they are going to replace the seal with another one, this will be number three and see what happens. So far he says this is at no charge to me. I am going to speak with the General Manager about taking this unit back and starting over with another motorhome or just taking it back and get a refund. We will be going to Knoxville on Monday to discuss our options.

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

Good morning everyone. Sandy thank you so much for the offer concerning the Old fella Rally in October. James Holder has assured me the coach will be ready by early September. If not then we will make other arrangements. James has tried so hard to accommodate us and so far Tennessee RV hasn't charged us a dime for all the repairs done to the Motorhome. I guess when you buy something eight years old stuff happens. So looking at it from a stand point that God is in control of whatever happens in our lives I have to look at it as lessons learned. When the folks are trying so hard to please as they are, it is difficult to get angry with them. Sue is having a hard time with all the issues that has been going on and has lost all confidence in the unit. She is ready to let the hair go with the hide and get rid of it, But then I am afraid we won't be able to buy another unit of any kind since Sue has retired and we have lost her income. Psalms 32:7 says, "Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him." So we will wait until we see the hand of the Lord move in a direction that we know he has ordained and approved. I have had another set back with the 73 Lincoln. I have spent all this money making it dependable and road worthy only to have the front windows fail. The car is so beautiful and the drive train is perfect. But once people find out the front windows don't work they back off. There is a kit to change the windows that does away with the vent windows. You replace it with a new set up that has one big window instead of the combination of vent and window that lets down. However the kit is $450.00 per side and by the time you get it finished you will have spent $1,100.00 which I don't have to put into the car. So it sets in the driveway, looking beautiful but is an albatross hanging around my neck. Hobo and Peaches are doing well with the meds. Suzie is still acting like a puppy while Izzie is still a cat. Sue is handling the pressure of retirement trying to adjust our lifestyle into a budget that is really tightening things down to having what is necessary and doing away with the things we can do without. So far we have been able to trim the house whole budget down several hundred dollars by cutting back on items like Direct TV, phone service and yard service. Anyway it is a new adventure for us, one that challenges us to be better stewards of what God has given us. 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. Safe travels and God bless to those on the road

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

Good morning everyone. What a beautiful morning. Peaches was doing so good with her food and the meds mixed in but this morning she bit into the hot dog with the pill inside and she quit eating. I am not going to worry about it, when she gets hungry she will eat. Hobo is doing great. She acts as if she feels much better. Suzie is doing great, still a puppy at heart. Izzie, well Izzie is still a cat. Today I am having lunch with my pastor and a retired pastor friend. I will pick them up in the 73 Lincoln and give them a good taste of nostalgia of days gone by. The motorhome is still waiting for the part from Foretravel so the slid-out repairs can be completed. I hope all is well with everyone. 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 fro me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

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

Good morning everyone. Rosie we have never had a mouse in any of our Rv's but we were invaded with ants a bunch of times. Waycross, Georgia's Laura S Walker State Park is one giant ant bed. We got two rain showers yesterday late in the afternoon. Our lawn is looking great. But the humidity is so high its like walking into a sauna when you go outside. All the girls are doing well since they are on meds for their different aliments. Hobo seems to have more energy and shows more interest in what is going on around her. Peaches is like a puppy again. She is actually running around the house and the yard, tail held high with ears cocked upward to hear as much as she can. Poor thing is about deaf. 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. Dan and Patty where are you this morning? Dr. Doug you and Sandy post some pictures so we can keep up with you. Walter and Garland hope you are doing okay.
