RE: Battery/Inverter question for winter

I also keep mine plugged in 365 days a year. I do not remove my batteries and do not cut the residential frig off. Personally I think it is better for the frig to stay on just like it was designed to do. When I had the propane/frig I did cut it off during the winter as it uses a different technology for cooling. Just my two cents worth.

RE: Bed rail clearance

That is about what I have and I don't even think about it. I have hit some dips in different cg's and never hit anything at all.

RE: Pigeon forge

We enjoyed it so much we went back four years in a row. It is a great cg. They do not have a pool nor bath houses BUT because of that it is one quiet cg.

RE: The sad part of pet ownership

I am sorry to hear about your sheltie. Our large dog turns 13 this month. We already have ramps for the fifth wheel and the truck. His hind legs are getting very weak. Like you, we will do what is best for him if he gets incapable of going. Take care.

RE: 75 Speed Limit - How Fast

It is hard to imagine that this thread would go on this long with such strong wording from various posters. My rig is equipped well enough to run 75 to 85 easily if I chose to do so. However I am not in a hurry and have been driving for quite a few decades with no violations. I don't drive 65 to 67 for economy only, I drive that speed due to the sudden changes in front of me. My wife, dogs and others are my responsibility and I intend to honor that. If you want to drive 75 to 85 pulling that is your choice. I will continue driving my way and not once worry about it.

RE: Moles

Not to be cute but Lucky our rotty/shepard mix smells moles out, digs them up, crushes them and moves on. For mice we take anything that a mouse can use for bedding and put it in a big sealed tote. We also vacuum the pantry and make sure all crumbs or other items they like are up. Never have had a mouse problem and we live in the country. Our current fiver has a sealed underbelly save the front legs but that is independent of the rest of the fiver.

RE: 75 Speed Limit - How Fast

I stay around 65 -67 somewhere in that range and that includes out West. I was on I-40 in New Mexico a while back and a 18 wheeler went by me doing close to 100 for sure. She was screaming and pouring out smoke but boy was he moving. So even if I had been in the 80 mph range he would have blasted his air horn at me. I don't worry about traffic behind me either. There is always the left lane.

RE: Help choosing tow vehicle

It is really up to you but odds are you will find the pop up a lot of fun and the next thing you know you will be looking for a travel trailer with a slide or two. You might not think so now but just wait. With two small kids and all the stuff you will take personally I would go with a F-150 equipped with the towing packages. You don't need all that but like I said, you will eventually. Handling and gas mileage will be negligible but the room and safety will be priceless.

RE: Auto level question

I have the 6 point system too. All I do is press auto reconnect and the back jacks raise on their on and then the front jacks bring the hitch to the correct height.

RE: What ONE feature do you really like/want in your next RV ?

We have what we want now. After having travel trailers, tents, pop ups and a 40 foot dp motor home we have exactly what we want and this will be our last one. Honestly we don't want anything different. It did take about two years of searching different makes and floor plans.

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

If this thread has done one thing for me, it has shown me the absolute arrogance and lack of concern for some people's dogs. While i have never reported anyone in a CG, that is going to change when i see dogs not being properly cared for. Thank you all for you input. The hypocrisy of naming the arrogance of another in such a self-righteously arrogant post is mind-numbing to me. I am convinced that most every campground that has a 'no dogs left behind' rule has it so that they have a basis on which to deal with a camper whose dog is problematic in some way. A dog resting comfortably and quietly in an RV is no one's business, and that campground doesn't want to deal with your pointless complaints. If you see active abuse of an animal in any circumstance - report it. If a dog is left behind, contrary to campground rules, and it is being particularly bothersome - report it. Otherwise, MYOB and stop walking around as though you know what is best for everyone and everything else in the world. AMEN

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

And i hate to get dragged into this, but folks, *SNIP some useless verbiage* I have begun to think that dog owners are the most Clueless people in the world. Whenever you hear "but" in a sentence you can disregard everything said prior to it. This is a perfect example and the reason for his "but" was in the final sentence. If find clueless campers, drivers and people generally all around me. In my opinion you are quite probably clueless in at least one facet of your existence. I'm typing from my campground right now. This morning we went to a store thirty minutes away because our air pump had broken and the kids wanted water rafts and the like. As mentioned before, my German Shepherd came with us. The wife wanted some sundries but it was high seventies and sunny so the dog couldn't be in the car for long. I have remote start that brings on climate control for 10 minutes so he stayed in the car. I went in and told the wife I'd find the air pump, drop it in the cart and return to the dog which I did. I can stand a quarter of a mile from my truck and start it which I do sometimes when the dog is in there because I fear the most clueless twits on the planet. Other human beings that see a dog in a car in summer and with no care for it's condition either break windows to "give them air" or call the police who break windows because, well, it's fun. If the clueless amongst us want to be helpful learn to recognize a dog in distress from heat. Clue: simply panting isn't distress, my dog does it in a Michigan winter. Good for you and your dog. I leave my temp stik in the truck and leave it running if I need to take the dogs with us when we make a run to the store for something. I have the temp stik set to check every 15 mins. My worse fear is some idiot will smash the window to steal the truck and like you said some will break the window since the dog is in there. My rot/shepard mix may not like that!! As far as this thread some folks want to complain and just KNOW they are correct. Safe travels.

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

I'm not trying to stir the pot here, but Lantley (and others), do you read the CG rules about dogs when you stay there? Personally i read the rules (all of them, not just dog rules) before i show up at a place and if i dont like them i spend my money elsewheres. I am dead serious that i have never been in a CG that isnt very specific that dogs arent allowed to be left unattended. fwiw, i rarely stay in resort type or state park CGs. Maybe thats the difference in our experiences. Every campground does not have rules concerning unattended dogs. I agree some do but many don't certainly not all. I am confident my dog does not disturb the peace. The CG will not no he is there because he is not a yapper. If a tree falls in the forest does anybody hear? If a dog is awaiting quietly in the camper does anybody know? For the record there are lots of CG rules in place to give the CG absolute authority if they need it. Your group is too loud after quiet hour ....no we were not....you are still in violation ...no alcohol permitted. Your dog was barking... no he wasn't.... You are still in violation for leaving dog unattended I am not the camping outlaw you imply. I have camped for many years and have not had an encounters with management concerning my dog. I understand the rules and there intended purpose. Agree. I am not a "rule outlaw either". As a matter of fact I cannot think of one cg I have stayed in that had a problem when I had to leave our fur babies by themselves. Heck, I give most of them a key to the fiver in case something happened and they needed to get the dogs out. I show the host what I have on my smart phone in regard to my keeping an eye on them and generally they are pleased I am that diligent. With all the threads on this I understand there are folks who have had not so pleasant experiences with barking dogs but that does not make the majority of us rebels.

RE: Remote Door Lock?

Ours came with keyless entry. We have found it to be a nice feature. We stay at the beach about 3 months a year and it is so convenient to be able to lock the door when we go down to he beach for the day and not worry about a key. As far as another feature to go bad it works just as good as the keyless entry on your tow vehicle. Ours sounds an alarm when the battery gets low so I don't worry about that. I replace my batteries twice a year but we use the lock a lot.

RE: Something we all knew

I believe not only young children but adults as well benefit greatly. If any of you watched Titans last night one of the contestants,an army paratrooper, was very depressed over losing his buddy. He got a pug and climbed out of his depression and even brought his dog with him to the Titan games. He admitted to it on National tv. He didn't win the game but in my world he is definitely a Titan.

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

We know if ours bark since we can hear whatever they are doing. Not only can we hear them but we can talk to them as well. Asking your neighbors is one way to check but being able to actually hear them if they do bark is priceless. Technology is a great thing if used for the purpose it was created.

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

We leave our two when necessary in the fiver. To make sure all is ok we have a Amazon Cloud Cam with audio on the entire time we are gone as well as a temp stick to monitor temp and humidity. We also use a Verizon mifi rather than rely on cg internet connections. Both my and my wife's smart phones are set up to receive text and emails from the temp stik if something goes haywire. They are not and never have been crated but that is just our preference. Leaving your dog outside will cause you a lot of problems in most cg's if the dog is not attended.

RE: Gatlinberg, TN and Ashville, NC

In Asheville I would stay at Mama Gerties. Get the premium site on top of the mountain if you can. For Gatlinburg I would stay in P Forge at Up the Creek. Very quiet cg with large sites. They only accept RV's, no tents and they do not have bath houses. It is close enough to P Forge and Gatlinburg it is a very short drive.

RE: Opininons on 2013 open range 386FLR

As someone who had had their share of campers over the years, I can say that Highland Ridge has bent over backwards to make sure what concerns I have had were corrected. While I have not had any problems with my unit of a worrisome nature the minor things were repaired pdq. The only problem I have had was lack of dealer support for those small items. Highland Ridge authorized a certified RV tech near my home to do all the warranty repairs I have needed so I would not have to deal with the dealer ****. My issues were items like a bad outdoor speaker, bad on board water pump, replacing the compression blocks, and repairing what the dealer had messed up when replacing one of my slide toppers. We are more than satisfied with Open Range/Highland Ridge and would not hesitate to buy again.

RE: Awning tie downs

Not a good idea if your awning rolls up automatically in wind gusts. I always roll mine up if I know a hard wind is coming. However at the coast wind springs up suddenly sometimes and the awning auto retracts.
