Congratulations, I quit 25plus years ago. While it took me three different efforts before the 4th one worked I have never regretted it once. Keep up the good job.

RE: Unleashed dogs in campgrounds: A solution

We have a miniature schnauzer that is always on a lease. She thinks she can take on the world. I always worry about her, me, and or my wife being attacked by unleashed dogs when out walking her. My secretary's leashed miniature poodle was killed by an unleashed dog several years ago. Also saw two people standing together and talking in an RV park. One had a small dog on a leash the other a full sized dog not on a leash. Suddenly the unleashed dog attacked the small one. I thought the little dog as well as the two people in the middle of the fight were all going to be injured. The little dog owner picked hers up and the big dog continued to attack the little one as well as the woman holding it. They finally got them separated and other than a few scratches and scrapes all were OK. So it can happen.

RE: 'On the Go' water softening device- orange granules

Those were resin beads and they "collect" the minerals from the water. Then the salt and back flush flushes the minerals off the beads. So it depends on how many beads you lost to say how much the unit may have been degraded. I think.many water stores that sell water softeners an RO units,etc sell beads. I understand they are not cheap.

RE: 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Extended Cab 4x4

The listed curb weight is usually for the base model. That way threading make an owner's manual based on all the various models. I think the base model is a smaller engine than the 5.3. If you have the Z 71 package that adds weight for skid plates. Anyway what I'm trying to say is if you haven't weighed the truck I would do I'll bet it weighs closer to 5300 pounds. Then if you haul anything in the truck you have to keep adding. As others said make sure you can two the weight.

RE: Memory Foam pads?

I tried a 4 inch memory foam pad on the plywood of our motor home bed. It was not comfortable at all. Ended up with a 2.inch foam pad on top of the motor home mattress. We thought it very comfortable. Of course we did not have to worry about had room.

RE: Price range of coaches and quality

I had a class A motor home manufacturers rep once tell me that when one purchases a high dollar coach most of the money buys more attention from personnel at the factory.

RE: Changing engine air filter in 2004 Dutch Star

I think there is a recommended interval change. If not required before the recommended limit is now three years. This is to make sure the filter element does not deteriorate and end up in the turbo or engine.

RE: Gutter Extensions

If you really want to get the water away from the RV fasten a fishing line to a clothes pin that is clipped onto the gutter and move it away from the RV by fastening the other end to a can or rock on the ground. The water will run down the line.

RE: 2010 Jeep liberty Toad option

I towed a jeep liberty for about 12years and over 100,000 miles. Loved it. Got rid of it when it started costing lots because of age and miles. You probably won't like the gas mileage one gets, but other than that don,t think you would ever regret getting and towing a jeep.

RE: Getting to Class A

I would stop looking for motor homes other than Newmar. A Dutch Star or Kountry star which was last made in 2008, I think would fit your needs very well. Just need to check out what floor plans are out there on the market.

RE: disadvantage of having MoHo parked in driveway.

Our motor home is beside the house. When we are gone we have exterior motion sensor lights, timers on various inside lights, radio's set to come on to talk shows at various times, our car in the garage, neighbor parks in or drive at times and three sheriff's cars parked two doors away. You are correct people can know we are gone, especially all the neighbors.

RE: Basement Air

Winnebago had the basement air and I loved it. There was a tendency for the cold air duct that goes from the unit,up under the rear cap, to the duct system in the ceiling to split apart at the seams. You can tell if this is happening by sticking your hand up along the duct to feel for cold air when the unit is running. Otherwise no other particular problems I am aware of after owning mine for 5 years.

RE: Toilet Stain

I just bought a toilet cleaner made by Zep from tractor supply. Works better than anything I've ever tried before.

RE: Max. Ball Drop

I think you can get as much as a 10" drop receiver, but it will not be cheap. Check web sites for one from Blue Ox.

RE: Destination

If you want to go to Yuma, if it is anything like years past, you need to get reservations because lots of folks like it. Several years ago we tried to get a place to stay in Yuma and had to stay in Wellton AZ. Don't remember the name of the park which was not great, but it did have friendly people and we liked it for the two weeks we stayed. Lots of people paid the annual rent for their spots. Yuma is not an arm pit but different people have different tastes. I would judge the individual people who have the opinions rather than the city.

RE: Credit Card security

I have never signed the back of my credit card and have never been questioned about it. That's for every year I have had a credit card and I am old enough I can't remember how many years that has been.

RE: Used Satellite Dishes?

For our motor home dish we use a manual set up with tripod when roof mounted one is blocked by trees. Originally I had a small tripod from CW. It was a pain to set up and I dreaded messing with it. finally got tired of ole shakes and got a larger tripod from Radio Shack and a piece of conduit from Home Depot. Put my manual dish obtained from a junk store (garage sales also good place to look) plumbed it with a post level obtained for 5 or6 bucks. Now I had a solid steady antenna, easy to aim. Turned into a piece of cake compared to ole shakey.

RE: RV Credenza

I had a table and I built a credensa and added it over the the table. If you are doing the work you may find it easier to have a free standing table "under" the credensa. Just a thought.
