RE: we had to put our camping buddy down 12-23-15

Thanks all for the condolences. We had a OK Christmas without our Houston buddy around but his younger sister(Sophie) is taking up that space now. She has missed her older brother a lot. She moped around a lot over the holiday weekend but she seems to be OK this week. We have so much rain we haven't been able to go outside and have a proper funeral for him. We should be able to do that this weekend. Again thanks for all the condolences. randy Just revisiting this page and seeing my buddies picture brings up some great memories but also some sadness. I really haven't put all this into prospective. I do miss this ole' boy. HE was around us for more than 13 years. We were looking at his AKC papers and he was born August 12, 2002 and my oldest got him when he was 8 weeks old. So he was a part of our family for a long time. HE was with us longer than any animal we have ever had. Looking at this picture he was just a good ole' boy. Loved to eat and it shows. He was a smooth operator too when it came to getting food wrappers and into the trash. He loved to get into trouble while he was in the camper.. He really did eat about half a box Krispy Kreme donuts one night. OH the next day..... We forgot them on the counter top from breakfast and he climbed up on the couch and over onto the counter top and had the empty box under the bed. He did this while we were out to eat one night. He would do this with pizza boxes and anything we did not put up. The stove turned into a good storage area as was the micro wave. Just these things make me smile about him.. Loved that boy. thanks for memory's.... Houston my good ole' boy..

we had to put our camping buddy down 12-23-15

http://i.imgur.com/czEjASgl.jpg HOUSTON We had him for 13 years. He loved to camp and go about anywhere. He liked to get on the couch and then get on the kitchen counter top and see what he could find to eat,He had ate a lot, Pizza, bread, anything you forgot he did not. He liked K.K. donuts too. that was a not nice the next day.. His younger sister has been all over us this past weekend. She did not let us out of her sight. She knew something was up with him, I could tell the way she was around him that last week. He had congestive heart failure and a cancerous mass the size of a softball. So that harder than not decision was made. We loved him and we will miss him. See ya later buddy, randy

RE: Ocean Lakes - Thanksgiving

Well to update this Thanksgiving trip.. IT was great. the weather was perfect.. Could not have ordered a better week at the beach. A little wet Sunday and Monday but after that mid 70's during the day and Friday it hit 80 plus degrees. As they say at work "a bad day of paid time off(PLB) is better than a good day at work" especially when you are camping. randy

New Pro ECL Interstate batteries

Has anybody used one of the new Extended Charging Life (ECL) batteries from Interstate. I am needing a new camper battery and these have lots of good things to say. They are saying charging and cell life technology like a closed cell battery(AGM) but at half the cost. And they cost a little more than the regular RV/marine batteries. Just looking for a real life story. thanks randy Quote from website: More Cycles, More Life. Get more camping, more comfort and more fun with the Interstate® Pro ECL Series battery. With more cycles and more life than the conventional flooded 12-volt marine/RV battery, the Pro ECL Series keeps your vehicle running 50% longer no matter where your adventures take you. High-powered Value The Pro ECL Series' cycling performance approaches that of absorbed glass-mat (AGM) batteries, but at a fraction of the price. With 100 repetitive reserve capacity cycles1, Pro ECL Series batteries offer you the best value for your money.

RE: Is this damage worth reporting to Insurance?

get an estimate to see whether it would be an insurance job. ladder is broken, trim piece looks like it would need to replaced. molding needs to be replaced. plastic/rubber bumper needs to be maybe cleaned repaired and painted. side light lens broken/missing. Me I would at least get the estimate then proceed from there. Cost might be higher than you think for a claim. but its all cosmetic right now.. can you live with looking at that each and every time you take camper out. randy

RE: Ocean Lakes - Myrtle Beach SC

First of all, the place is huge. The sites are a mix of back-ins, pulls throughs, sand and grass, and concrete. There are also a bunch of cottages. All together there are close to 900 sites, and even off season the occupancy rate seems to be about 65%. Our site was 1 row back from the Atlantic Ocean beach. http://i.imgur.com/odH4ocBl.jpg It just doesn't get any better. that's in the 2000 section, pretty much Ocean Front. second row over from Myrtle Beach resort, this separates Ocean Lakes CG from Lakewood CG. glad you enjoyed randy

RE: used Truck Rant

Any 2003 f-250/350 or earlier with the 7.3 PSD will carry more value than the same year model or later with 6.0 diesel. 7.3 PSD is fords work horse engine. I am hearing good things about the newer 6.7 with DEF. BUT my wife says NO! no new payments...:) randy

RE: Jay Flight roof replacement UPDATE

I missed the part about why you had to replace the roof on a new camper...? Work was completed at Bill Plemmons RV in Rural Hall NC. by a Master RV tech. They seem to be a great dealer based on what I have seen on the interweb and I have gone up there several times looking. Nice dealership. Thanks for sharing. randy

RE: Digital Photos--How do you organize them?

I make a folder and call it "date" "xxxx"and just dump everything in there. I put the date first because windows likes to put things in order. So if you put the name...everything is all over the place. Date first made it easier to find. What I find sad is that we have all these photos, but rarely go back to look at them. I do this also. and I look at them but only when I am looking for something I took a picture and want to see if I can find again. but true about never looking again at them. randy

RE: Ocean Lakes, Mrytle Beach

US 501 and then get on SC544 right after the cooling pond by the power plant and follow it straight into Ocean lakes campground. we follow this every time. getting on sc31 would not save you any time. unless you are traveling back out to north myrtle beach and that area. using 544 will take you by coastal carolina college and there are stop lights and its 45mph but its the easiest way and 4 lanes all the way to the campground. I do this route 2-3 times a year. randy

RE: Major Advice Needed ASAP.

Get the 350! Also since you have the factory pucks sell your existing hitch and get a B&W. You will be very happy! I have been looking at the B&W that goes onto the rails installed in my truck now. Best hitch around. randy
