RE: Rudest dealer ever

My thought is there is never a reason for a store employee to be rude. A simple response of, "I'm sorry we are closed" would have been the appropriate response and I would have hoped the OP would have accepted that. I understand that people want to get home to families, plans etc. at the end of their work day. I have to confess that about 100 years ago in high school and college I worked in an Ice Cream/Diner type place and sometimes a bus would pull up about 5 minutes before closing. Sometimes I immediately turned off the lights. The next day I always sheepishly confessed this to the owner... fortunately he was understanding and laughed.

RE: Noisy kids, drunks,rude people, dog dung

We have camped for over 30 years and have had very few issues with others. Unsupervised kids worry me... occupational hazard. I do hate it when it is so loud that I can't sleep - oh wait, that is almost always DH snoring. I guess the poster did not mean that kind of noise. Fortunately I am pretty sure he is not loud enough to be heard at other campsites.

RE: Best road atlas

Thanks. I opted for the Rand McNally Motor Carriers. But... we were opening gifts and DH got me the Good Sam RV Road Atlas. Yikes now we have two!

RE: Best road atlas

DH is a computer programmer/systems analyst. I use to help drive when pulling a TT but I have not driven with the 5th wheel, no reason, I just haven't. He has chosen the Garmin RV since we need a new GPS, but we would also like a atlas type. Thanks for all the info. I am beginning the search.

Best road atlas

We normally just use a gps but I am looking for an Atlas for DH for Christmas. Can anyone tell me which one you use? Thanks

RE: Scared -first time for everything

I have not read all replies but DH and I think bear. You heard scratching on the side first and then an attempt to open the door. We can't imagine a person scratching first but a bear will and they do know what handles are for.

RE: Potluck winners needed please

Most requested dessert recipe, and the easiest one I make. Tube of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough. Pat it in a 9x13 pan and bake. Remove and spoon 3/4 cup peanut butter on top. Return to oven that you have turned off for 40 seconds. Smooth out. Add bag of semi sweet chocolate chips. Return to oven for a minute or two. Spread Chop 4 favorite candy bars and spread on top. I add m&m's for color. Let cool then cut and serve.

RE: Campground suggestions in MIchigan

Thank you for all your suggestions. We loved Munising Tourist Park. We were right on Lake Superior and it was beautiful. We also stayed at Platte River and loved the campground, the sites and the beaut of the area. Michigan is so beautiful in the fall. Now biking Grand Island is another story entirely.

Campground suggestions in MIchigan

I tried this already and hope 2 posts don't show up. We plan to travel to Michigan (Pictured Rock Nat'l Lakeshore, St. Ignace or Mackinac, and Sleeping Bear Dunes) in mid to late September. Does anyone have favorite campgrounds in any of these areas? Full hook-ups are not a necessity, but we prefer electicity and water. Thanks in advance for any help. Also do most of the Michigan campgrounds close the end of September?

RE: Need advice for towing downhill....

Lots of good advice on a difficult subject. You have really hit on the technical aspects. But...if your wife is a nervous passenger like I am, my advice for her is to close her eyes, read a book, play a game. I can't help him drive but I can and have added to his stress, so I try to keep busy.

RE: How do you hang your bath towels?

We bought a towel rack that has two hook things that go over the shower and the towel rack hangs from that. I hang both of our towels from that.

RE: Anybody flush their black tank with a hose onto the ground?

Our camping friends & family think we could write a book about what we have seen at dump stations. We do understand the issues with diseases, but laugh anyway...probably inappropriately. Just a few highlights: There was the guy who suddenly put both hands on his TT and started pushing it really hard, we guess he was trying to shake the sh...out of the camper. Then there was the guy who dropped his dump hose down the drain, and dived on the ground threw his arm down the hole up to his shoulder...but that hose was gone. Then there was the lady who left the valves open and pulled away draining all manner of things. Sorry...I'll stop.

RE: Must Have, Don't Need

1. We have a complete bathroom, not a sink or shower outside the bathroom and would never want to give that up. 2. Wish we did not have a back door, but a mid door. 3. We have a smaller 5th wheel so there is not much we would want to do without. We do not use the TV or radio/CD player much. 4. Do not have or want w/d or d/w 5. We do not have a fireplace, don't want one, or a full kitchen. We have 3 burners and a sink outside and that is enough. When we are at the ocean or shore - DH cooks his seafood stuff outside. Best wishes on your search.

RE: Camp site selection

We look for tree limbs, check if slides can open, prefer outside site that has an open field or woods behind if possible. If possible, not crowded with boats, extra cars, extra tents on nearby site.

RE: What's wrong with bumper sewer hose storage???

We've always used the bumper and as someone mentioned, we put the hinge type "door" on and that works great.

RE: Atta Boy to Akron CW

We bought our 5th wheel from Sirpilla CW which I am pretty certain is the dealership mentioned here. The salespeople were great. Our experience with service has been...well...fortunately my husband can do any service so far that we need. Our friend had new Passport TT there twice for a problem with the slide. The first time they did not fix it right, my husband told our friend what had to be done and he took it back. Six weeks later, after contacting Marcus it was finished correctly this time.

RE: DH had open heart surgery yesterday

Prayers for a speedy recovery and comfort to you as a care giver. BillandCarole, prayers for you also. My sister-in-law had a valve replacement last July. It was a tough time, but now she feels great. Best Wishes!

RE: My dog is not a threat.

While reading this post and the responses, I started thinking about the responses and comparing them with dog breeds, so I did some research and this is what I came up with. (Joking here - so keep your sense of humor.) Responses are... 1. Aggressive, angry and grumpy - Like UNTRAINED Pit Bulls or Chihuahuas 2. Funny - Like a Puli 3. Kind and caring - Like Labs, Bichons, or Bulldogs 4. Easy going - LIke Cavelier King Spaniels 5. Intellegent helping us learn - Like Australian Cattle Dogs and Border Collies. * Remember that individual dogs won't always fit the discriptions I found. Remember, just joking!

RE: I'd Appreciate Your Advice

Sorry I can't say just two since I am not sure what your interests are - Ohio has some great museums (COSI, Wright Pat, Great Lakes Science Center). If you love football, The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton Ohio, if rock and roll is your thing, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, if you love "rides" Cedar Point is great. Amish Country in Holmes and Tuscarawas County has woodwork, crafts and lots of food. Enjoy your trip!!
