RE: New Working LGDs

Penny seems to grasp that the collies are doing your bidding? (and therefore are "OK") Being near a collie sure puts their enormous size into perspective! As an aside - our son just lost his last maremma :-( They seemed very able to discern a "pet visitor" and as long as the visitor didn't harrass the livestock, there were no conflicts. Given the size of our crazy family and how many dog visitors they had, this was pretty impressive discernment!

RE: Prostate problems

One "Side" effect... post recovery I lost about 10 pounds.. and noticed a reduction in edema in my legs (where the 10 pounds came from) My THEORY (Which I will ask about at next Urologist visit) with the bladder empty. Kidneys working better. In short that's a side BENEFIT. Funny this thread re-appeared - since my original cheery statement, Ed developed Ucerative Colitis, and somehow, all that inflammation seems to have set off his prostate? After landing my sweet husband in the ER with kidney failure due to complete blockage, it is now officially "too big" (BPH). He's being a good sport about being catheterized until he can go in for TURP surgery a month from now. He's not looking forward to it, of course; but he's already had TUR surgery to remove a tiny speck of bladder cancer that was found during his CT scan for the UC, and successfully removed.

RE: RVIA Certificate?

LOL!! Let me guess: Jetty Park? It's an amazing place and the closest you can get to a rocket launch - but because so many people want to camp there, they are trying to weed out the party folks and rocket geeks who might show up in a rented U-haul so they can be in the park after dark. We had gone there with our converted Transit Cargo van and stayed for the day - nobody said anything, but we weren't camping, either (we live nearby). I suspect that a factory-built truck camper won't be questioned.

RE: New Working LGDs

This is awesome - I loved the video of the sheep checking out the "new kids in town" Glad you have some protective partners again. My son lost both his Maremmas; but now that they aren't raising calves and piglets, the guard duties are being carried out by "Ricky Bobby" the miniature donkey....LOL!

RE: FR Forester vs Sunseeker - what's the difference?

The next obstacle; The 2401B comes with a recliner option. Oddly, not a single unit for sale in the US has the recliner option, just the dinette. Anyone know how challenging it would be to swap out the dinette for the recliners? The local dealer won't do it. I think CW sells the electric recliners. I have a Class C Thor Chateau, and on the shorter models like mine (22E) there's a TON of stuff inside the dining benches. I had dreams of making ours into more of a "lounge-type dinette" until I saw what was under the seats. Now I like my dinette just fine the way it is.....LOL!

RE: Park pet peeves, Park owner’s turn

Private property means you can pretty much do what you want. OTOH how many would check into a campground posted rules like "Keep your kids out of street, there are no speed limits!", "Owners of small dogs beware, no training is required, all dogs are free to bark and roam free!" or "Play your music as loud/long as you want!" . Ironically, we went to a highly-recommended campground for a family campout that had previously been owned by a church; but then got bought out by a group who supported medical marijuana by the time we went there. They proudly declared "Our only rule is that there aren't any rules". They provided live music for the whole campground - fortunately we enjoy the Grateful Dead and Tom Petty, etc - and they DID stop blaring it around midnight. Our covered picnic table pavilion had the biggest wasp nest I've ever seen - thank God for awnings on motorhomes. And the women's shower, which one paid to use, didn't have a water heater that functioned (they had one on hand, just hadn't gotten around to installing it). They offered kayaking on a nearby river - it hadn't been maintained and a "beginner-friendly" paddle started with a thigh-deep muck-wading entry point, and had more portages than I've ever experienced on "wild" rivers. The one good point - all the campers were exceptionally friendly and nice....LOL! While it made for a slew of great stories to be told later around campfires - I can truly appreciate a well-managed park with sensible rules!!

RE: Pet Peeves in RV Parks

You know what?? Send all the jerks to camp by me. After a health scare with Hubby and seeing my camping days potentially coming to an end - I'm so stinkin' happy to be back camping, even in crammed-in-parking spaces - that I can tolerate ANYTHING. Our new little Class C is cute as a button and keeps things comfy for Ed, so I'm grateful for getting a chance to be on the road again. Deb

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

A friend of ours has something like this to left his chair up and into the truck bed chair hoist Not sure if you have enough clearance in the storage bay? My sis is law had a hitch-mounted carrier with a ramp for her husband's power chair - Amazon carries those

RE: Arctic Blast

Wow, you'd think it was winter or something. If I recollect correctly, it gets cold this time of year pretty much all the time. Guess it's a slow news day. Yes it does get cold this time of year. But .... Not (usually) this cold.. This is Feb-1 cold or worse. Our home is in West Michigan, in a "Lake Effect" snowbelt. They are just telling folks to stay home on Friday (Blizzard Warning). So I'm hunkered down in E central Florida, where it's supposed to be in the 20-30's for windchills and the "Falling Iguana" alerts are out. I guess it's going to be a dangerous holiday for everyone.....

RE: 24 feet versus 26' dilemma, have to decide fast

As I mentioned above, I'm thinking of gutting some useless to me furniture out and putting it in storage, to use my small folding camping furniture instead and even folding it up, as needed, to make space. This might not be an option in a smaller RV: my Thor 22E has a "regular" dinette, and before we actually took ownership, my brain was switching the "regular" dinette to some sort of a "lounge" for more sitting comfort. Once I got the MH, I realized that the dinette benches are heavily utilized for "stuff" - one side holds my freshwater tank/drains; the other side has a drawer, and then the pump and other various boxes. Altering my dinette will be difficult at best - I solved the comfort problem by ordering an "unstuffed pouf" from Amazon - a fabric cube about 16 x 16 x 12" that I stuffed with extra blankets, and it makes a nice armrest/backrest.

RE: Have just lost Goof, my 13 year old Aussum Shepherd.

Not only does cremation make having them "with you" possible; but I find it comforting. Sending prayers of healing for your body, and your heart. Aussies just wiggle their way into your heart...

RE: Casper Hero Livestock Guardian Dog

I'm amazed that the coyote pack was that big - and killing 8 of them is mind-boggling. Good boy Casper!!

RE: New Jeep Gladiator TOAD

We tow either my 2020 Gladiator or my wife's 2022 Wrangler, using the Ready Brute Elite tow bar system, and a home-made version of CoolTech's wiring harness - no messing with the vehicles' CANbus system at all! We JUST had the Cooltech wiring harness installed on our 2020 Wrangler JLU toad - I'll admit I was simply blown away that all the lights work when the Jeep is just sitting there, motor off.

RE: Can you name that sound (squeaking)?

OK, I'll chime in with our adventures with "strange squealings". A month after our trip to Alaska in 2006, our 2004 Class C started to sound like a cat was being killed underneath "MeowMeowMeow" and it was loud. (Attracted the attention of pedestrians) Your sounds are very similar, just quieter. It started at around 15 mph, and stopped at higher speeds. We too did all sorts of crazy things trying to track it down including me pedaling as fast as I could on my bike to pinpoint the sound from outside the MH. Finally decided it was a carrier bearing near the middle of the MH, took it to a truck shop for service. They said yes, the "sealed" carrier had lost its seal and the harsh volcanic dust in Alaska had gotten into the bearings. They replaced the carrier, and all was well. As an aside: we were told this was NOT covered under Ford's drivetrain warranty, because the frame had been lengthened to build the MH and new bearings had been added. We contacted Gulf Stream, and they put us in touch with the company near Elkhart that did the frame lengthening - they were SUPER-nice and offered to replace the bearing for free - would even let us arrive the night before, and would be the first service the next day so that we could be home that night. We decided to have it replaced at our expense locally, because we had a grandchild due to be born and didn't want to be gone. It ended up costing us around $300-ish; but I was really impressed by the willingness of the company (whose name I have forgotten) to help us out!

RE: Can toll booths read transponder w/C overhang?

I was told by PA EzPass folk to mount it bottom-center of the windshield. Did so, and it's worked fine. Thanks! I think that's what I will need to do, too, since my overhang has an "overhang" (dropped area along the front lower edge)

RE: Is Facebook killing this site?

Well, according to FB, I'm about to be kicked off their site, because I will NOT give them my phone number for "2-part verification". They say it's for "security" - but everyone I know who uses their phone for FB gets spam texts and robo-calls. I don't. Ever. Aside from missing pics of grandkids doing cute things, I really don't care. At least RV.net lets me hang around ;-) So just do what the scammers do! But this is top secret, so don’t tell anyone! LOL. Sign up for a ‘virtual’ (VOIP) phone number from any one of hundreds of companies. Then do the authentication and then turn off that phone number. See below. Best free virtual phone line providers. Clicky. Oh sheesh - I didn't know that sort of thing exists.... I thought about giving them my childhood landline number if all they want is some numbers...LOL!

RE: “New” vs.”Old” Ovens

I was just looking at the oven in our new Class C, and I can see that it will be easy to burn whatever gets put in there. I HATE to cook, so I was looking at my oven mainly as storage (and it didn't offer much of that either....LOL!!)

RE: Back up camera recommendations?

I bought an inexpensive "Amtifo" camera/monitor from Amazon; wired the camera from that set into the back of our TT, but then added a second camera to the back of our popup truck camper. It paired right up with the monitor, and when wired to the running lights, gave us a nice clear color view of what was going on behind us.
