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

Blood work cam back from the puppy, heart worm free, really no issues with anything else than except the burn and swollen throat and the back of her tongue. Margie said she is eating good and enjoying the attention she is getting.

Gary I am a pack rat, hardly ever throw anything away. We did get rid of some items when we traded for the motorhome, but there was still a lot of stuff in the storage house in the back yard.

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

Update on the puppy from Margie Old Fella Rescue: She is doing so so much better. She is now able to eat but is still under the care of Dr. Ford. I am waiting for an update from Dr. Ford today. All indications are she will survive but it will take time for her to recover. I will keep you updated Margie.

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

Good morning everyone. I will to keep you updated on the puppy at the vet. Wow! Today will see temps in the 70's again with fair skies. Flowers are stating to bloom, either we will have an early Spring or we will get a last winter blast that kills everything that has bloomed or turned green. Meanwhile we will enjoy this welcomed reprieve from winter. We had our four church meeting yesterday and it went well. Every quarter we meet with other churches in our area and have a worship service. This has really helped with relations in our community. After the service we shared a meal and fellowship. Where there are Baptist gathered together there is a dead chicken. We had some of the best fried chicken I have ever eaten. Sue made a coconut cream pied from scratch and it went fast. Our pastor Dr. Bob was the speaker and he delivered the best sermon I think he has ever preached since I have known him. The fur gang is well this morning. Izzie is having a good day. After breakfast he wanted outside on the deck to lay in the sun. Glad to see him doing so well. Sue just left with Hobo and Suzie for a walk. Hobo has to be put on a leash now because she will disappear into the woods and won't come back when she is called until she is darn well ready. Our guest will be arriving Thursday to take possession of the Foretravel. Right now all systems are great with everything working as it should. Kind of makes me jealous that after getting it all repaired now it is sold. However I am really liking the Montana fifth wheel. It seems more like a home when you are inside. I love the six point leveling system. It makes the camper steady just like walking in a house. There is no movement when someone gets up and walks around, nice. I just have to figure out how to operate the Pullrite hitch. I have come to the conclusion that these things are sold every day and people actual used then to their enjoyment. So if they can, then so can I. Okay I need to get moving so I will close wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to gibe 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}

Got some distressing news today from Old Fella Rescue. They found a 4-5 month old puppy that apparently someone forced drano down its throat then dumped it at a dumpster out in the county. The puppy is in bad shape, can't eat nor swallow because throat is burned and swollen. Puppy is at the vet fighting for its life

RE: Pullrite 4400

Okay someone walk me through the procedure of hooking up with the Pullrite Superslide, Just how do you find that sweet spot to close the jaws and lock them?

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

God morning everyone. What a beautiful day already. Lots of sunshine and its going to be a nice Spring like day. Suzie, Hobo and Izzie are well this morning. I got up and served them breakfast and then I fixed blue berry pancakes, orange juice and coffee for the rest of us. Yesterday Sue and I spent the day buying supplies for the camper, lining shelves and drawers. I fixed the steps going up to the bedroom, they were creaking when you stepped on them. I went over and over and over again on the procedure for hooking up with the Pullrite. Hope I got it figured out. Its really a great system when you get it hooked up and pulling through sharp corners. Anyway I'll figure it out. Got to get moving so we can go to church. 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. Rosie still missing you.

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

My car phone hook up drove Dan crazy today. Every time I would get out of the car and get back in my phone would call Dan. I would try to hang up so as not to bother Dan but I guess it did with him being called so many times and thing hang up. Dan. sorry for the inconvenience. Sue and I spent the day sorting things out and putting them in the camper. I attached my outdoor indoor thermometer today. I put the unit that sends out the signal for the outside temp in the pin box of the camper and the unit that records the inside and outside temp in the bedroom. Did that on the other fifth wheel we had and its works great. It has been cooler than expected today with periods of rain. When I wasn't working in the camper I put a movie in eth CD player and sat back the theater chair and put my feet up and relaxed. Sue made Meatloaf last night so I am going to make myself a meatloaf sandwich in a minute and sit back and just cool it for the rest of the evening. Two million two hundred thousand views for Old Fella with twenty seven thousand posts is a record for the RV,net forum that I don't believe will every be broken. Eleven years it has been running without a break. Way to go Old Fella.

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

Good morning everyone. It is really nice weather here. Spent yesterday with the camper putting things in and throwing stuff away. What I thought I had I don't and what I have is excess of stuff I really don't need. The fur gang is well this morning. Sue has gone for a walk with Hobo and Suzie. Izzie is somewhere in the house most likely in his room sleeping on the bed. So how are things with everyone? Planning any interesting trips this summer? Sure would like to some more folks sign up for the Old Fella Rally in October. 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: Pullrite 4400

When I was not having success unhooking the camper from the truck the camper and truck was on a down hill incline. This morning I moved the unit to the driveway where it is level. Raised the pin box just high enough that I could tell it was not touching the hitch plate, put the truck in neutral and let it roll away from the camper and settle, put the truck in park walked back and pull the lever to release the pin from the hitch and it unlocked and released the pin. So I guess I will always have to find a campsite that is level and straight to be able to unhook and hook back up. Anyway the truck is free from the camper so I can now look forward to the next episode. Thanks for all the help. The main issue is that if the truck still has tension against the lock mechanism it wont release. They actually say that you want to have the truck pushing back slightly. This takes all the pressure off the rotating lock mechanism. The curved lock mechanism wraps around the rear of the pin so if the truck is pulling forward slightly the pin is being held against the lock and there is too much friction for the handle to release. As long as the rig is chocked appropriately for the incline it cant be parked. The pin just cant be tight toward the rear causing a bind on the lock mechanism. I say appropriately for the incline because I have been on a steep enough slope that I locked a chain through my wheels on both sides. No problem unhitching but just have to keep the pressure off the rear jaw. You can park in un level areas, just cant have the pin pulled tight against the jaw. This is what my owners manual says: Page 11 WARNING : Never perform any of the following actions while any part of a person is between the vehicle and the trailer. 1. Once you have the trailer located and are ready to unhitch, (unhitching can only be accomplished when the truck and trailer are aligned within 10 degrees of each other--see previous page), block the trailer wheels so it will not roll back or forward. Back into the blocked trailer slightly and set the parking brake while you are still in gear. This action will relieve pressure on the lock mechanism before attempting to release the latch mechanism. 2. Lower the trailer jacks to the point of just touching the ground but do not raise the trailer at this point. 3. Open the Lock Jaw Assembly by first lifting, then pulling the Release Handle towards you (see pgs. 10 & 11). 4. Lower the trailer jacks until the bottom of the king pin box is almost free of the top of the Fifth Wheel Plate {A}. Make certain that the bottom of the king pin is not so high that binding on the hitch Lock Catch would result. 5. After lowering the truck’s tail gate, disconnect the trailer electrical cord and break-away switch cable, then pull forward. 6. As the king pin slides from the Fifth Wheel Plate, notice that the locking mechanism remains open once the king pin is removed Thanks for the instructions for the Pullrite. Camping World failed to give me any papers on the hitch,

RE: Montana model 2611 TV Amplifier button

I have a '17 3611 and not able to go the camper at the moment but as I remember it is 'hidden' behind the bedroom TV. You have to really look as it is behind some wires or other stuff. I could be wrong! The Montana site is very helpful and recommended. Found it!! It is behind the bedroom Tv located at the top where the wires are connected to a black plate. The green light that indicates the booster is on is hid behind some wires so it is hard to see. I looked there before when I started the search, just over looked it. Thanks for the tip. now I can go to bed and not look for it in my sleep.

RE: Montana model 2611 TV Amplifier button

I couldn't find mine either, but I could see the cigarette lighter style TV plug in. It wasn't until I used a mirror to look at it that I discovered the button behind the coaxial cable, just out of my view. Once I pushed it, the light came on, and there it was. So where is it located?
Dixie Flyer 02/17/17 06:27pm Fifth-Wheels
RE: Montana model 2611 TV Amplifier button

I don't own one, but did you look in the living room around the TV or in the Cabinet above the TV? Yes I did.... They are usually located close to the place you raise and lower the antenna Mine is located in the bedroom.

Montana model 2611 TV Amplifier button

Just bought a 2015 Montana model 3611, can't find the antenna amplifier button. I looked in the closet and around the bedroom but the little green light white casing with the black button to turn the amplifier off and on is hiding somewhere that I cannot find. Anyone have any ideas on where it might be?

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

Technician from Camping World got here, moved the truck and Camper up on the driveway, let weight of camper off the hitch, put truck in neutral to let truck and camper find common ground with each other, pulled the release handle and just like that the hitch released the pin so I could pull away from the camper. Any pressure at all on the pin will not allow you to release the pin from the hitch. :R So sensitive, go figure that someone would design something like this to use in a camping situation where you will find all kinds of obstacles that would hinder you from doing a simple task such as hooking and unhooking a Fifth Wheel to a hitch.

RE: Pullrite 4400

Well got hooked up at Camping World in Spartanburg, South Carolina, drove the 32 miles home and love the way the Pullrite handled the road and camper. Got home and cannot get the hitch to release the pin on the camper. Have tried nay different positions of the pin box resting on the hitch from all the weight testing in the hitch to very little weight resting on the hitch. Truck and camper are in line with each other, no reason for it to act this way. Be sure the rigs wheels are chocked etc. Raise the rig to the point that you just start to see a gap at the plate. Then put the truck into neutral to release any tension on the pin. That worked, thanks
