God bless all rescuers.

RE: Didn't know where to drop this so I'm putting it here.

Our 12 year old daughter wanted to visit places associated with Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts including her grave site. Just read the Wikipedia article which was very interesting and her birthplace is open to the public. Just one of many ideas for Savannah.I like it. These are the things I'm talking about. I watched a Youtube video of a recent experience directing folks to three eateries. I later read an article from some other folks directing one to the same three eateries. A coincidence? I don't think so. I would like recommendations like yours from places enjoyed, not paid hacks. thanks again. Also if you have a Girl Scout in your family, a visit to the Juliette Low Birthplace can earn them a patch, I think, or a pin maybe, that they can only get there. Our daughter did that. Very interesting place even if you're not a Scout. Dale

RE: Cooper, not good (update page 2)

Scottiemom I will take Sawyer when the time comes. Sawyer has become very attached to Cooper in the two months I've had him. Cooper has taught Sawyer so much in such a short time. Sawyer understands that Cooper doesn't feel well and is not pestering him. I hope Sawyer's experience is much like Duchess's. She seemed to understand completely. I know she missed her friend terribly, but she knew she was gone and accepted that. Dale

RE: $700 replacement toilet????

In 14 years, we've replaced our toilet in our Class A twice. The first time with the same model, etc., we bought from Amazon. Parts kept breaking on it. So the second time, we bought a different one at a liquidater in Elkhart, Indiana. Working great after a couple years. It's a different style, but fits in the space great. Dale

RE: Cooper, not good (update page 2)

I believe we are "given" the dogs we have because of the decisions that will need to be made regarding their care. My last four dogs were all special needs. Not planned that way and they seemed to be healthy when we adopted them. They were all rescues. While I would not choose to fight most cancers, only one of mine had cancer and that was a bladder cancer. We chose instead to keep them comfortable until it could not continue. Many people would just put them down out of convenience, but I think those of us on this forum would choose to love and keep them close until things changed for the worse for them. God bless you and God bless Cooper. He has the best life with you. One thing that might help Sawyer. He does know that something is wrong with Cooper. When I had to put one of my dogs down, the one that was left went into a deep depression and we almost lost him. He searched everywhere for his friend. He didn't know where he went and couldn't fathom where he was. It was difficult to watch and his health started going downhill and he died a year and a half later. So when my Butterscotch died of bladder cancer, we had to put her down. I took Duchess with us. They had been together since birth and it had been 11 years. Duchess knew Butterscotch was sick and we put her up on the table with BS. She zeroed in on BS's muzzle and kept her face right in BS's. She kept vigil like that, ignoring everyone and everything else in the the room, until BS died. After a few minutes, she looked up and wanted down off the table. She was ready to go. She never once looked for BS or searched for her. She may not have understood everything, but she knew BS was not coming back. Her life changed without her friend, but she accepted what happened. So you might think of including Sawyer in that process. God bless you all. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Burch, our son Brandon said the lovebugs are gone now. He had to drive to Lakeland from Melbourne yesterday and said they were already gone. Hope that's true for your drive. They were bad when we were there last week, though. Fortunately there was a big rainstorm that cleaned off his car so we didn't have to wash it. LOL Dale

RE: We are looking at combo washer dryer

I have been full time for 9 years with a Splendide 2100XC in my 5'er and simply would not be without it. Does it only do smaller loads - Yes, but who cares? Just run it a bit more often. Does it take longer to dry - Yes, but who cares? Load it, turn it on and come back in 3 hours or so to remove items. Does it wrinkle more than larger units - Yes, but who cares? I'm retired and don't need to impress anyone. Wrinkles can be reduced by using dryer balls and removing items promptly when dry and not overloading. With all of this being said Would I rather do larger loads and faster while sitting in a laundromat with a bag full of quarters - No! Enuf said. Good advice. Fulltiming for going on 15 years and this says it perfectly. I used it exclusively. Love it. Another thing to help with the wrinkles. Too much detergent makes things wrinkle. Use what the instructions say to and my stuff all dries in 90 minutes. Mine is a combo Splendide unit. Dale

RE: co pilot

So very sorry you both are going through this. Wishing you God's peace. You are fortunate that family members can and are willing to help at this time. Praying for you both. Dale

RE: When leaving for the day...

I took an old license plate and painted it white. Then I wrote on it, "Site occupied." I attached a chain to it and I hang it on the electrical box when we are gone. Could use a short shepherd's hook as well.

RE: Bed struts

We recently went from an air bed to a dense memory foam. Couldn't lift the bed by myself. The struts were old anyway and one was bad. DH ordered 2 off Amazon and put heavier lift ones on it to compensate for the added weight. Easy peasy. We went from 100# to 110# on our queen. Dale

RE: Refriderator replacement

Just an FYI on Leon. He can do warranty work on both Norcold and Dometic. When he replaced our cooling unit on our 1200 series, he gave us a 3-year warranty. It is his own design and he is Amish, but it is not actually the one sold as "The Amish Cooling Unit." In fact, his is a bit different and he will tell you why his is the one you want. He also sells and installs the ARP unit, which is a fail safe switch that will shut off your fridge when the system is getting overheated. That happens when you are out of level. It shuts down the fridge, then restarts when it cools down. Keeps them from burning up. Dale

RE: Refriderator replacement

If you are looking for a replacement refrigerator, the best place to look is National RV Refrigeration Leon is a young Amish man who works on any RV refrigerator and can fix some and replace others. He knows more about the gas absorption units than anyone. He is as honest as the day is long and will not take advantage of anyone. He will answer questions and sell parts if he has them. You have to leave a message and he will call you back before the day is over. Dale

RE: Looking for a durable air mattress

We've used all manner of air beds over the years. The Aero beds are nice but we also used the cheap $20 Intex air mattresses. Never cared for the sleep number system. . . just didn't like sleeping in a trough. After I had back surgery and got all fixed up, we bought a foam mattress that is absolutely wonderful. It is a Dynasty we bought from Amazon for about $275. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

The motorhome is in the shop. Don't know if I related we had a problem a couple weeks ago with leveling, so we haven't been using our jacks until we got them looked at. We took her over to Charger Enterprises in Elkhart yesterday and they watched while I ran the jacks up and down. We couldn't duplicate the problem, but it's obvious one of the jacks is broken, so they get to keep her and work on it. Hope they can find one. They are obsolete and no longer made. Tonight we fly to Florida. Because of the planes taken out of service (737's) we got bumped back to a 7 p.m. flight from a 5 p.m. flight. So we land in Orlando around 9. Son Brandon will be waiting for us. He earned another incentive trip for his company and we are going to babysit for a week for Brynlee and Lily, the golden doodle. He loves his company and his job. The last 7 out of 8 quarters he has exceeded his quota in sales. Suffice to say, the company loves him too. LOL We are all ready packed and are going to head south 45 miles and take my mom tacos for lunch and then we are going to mosey on down to Indy. I like to get everywhere early, so we will probably sit in the airport and people watch and have some dinner later. Mom spent 2 winters in Texas with us after Daddy died, but we sold her place this year and she now is in her park model in my sister's woods. She hates the cold, but she is so much better. She sees her doctor every 3 months and he has pretty much fined tuned her meds to where she is doing very well for almost 94 years old. We feel fortunate to still have her and that she lives on her own and takes care of herself. God bless everyone and your fur kids too. I sure do miss mine. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Happy Belated Birthday, Richard. Glad you had a great weekend. I'm thinking Dixie ate a bunch of stuff that could be toxic to dogs. Maybe Dr. Doug can chime in with some advice. Hope she gets along okay. We're taking Duchess "home" today. My vet of over 35 years has scattered all my dogs' ashes in his orchard around his apple trees. Butterscotch and Duchess both loved apples. We meet him at 8:30 today to hand over our precious cargo. He's been a great vet for us and is semi-retired. Dale

RE: What do you two do?

Corn Hole is popular. Also Mexican train, a form of dominoes. Just last week I saw a group with the old "jarts" game, the non-lethal version. :-) Dale

RE: This happened today

So sorry for your loss. At least the insurance company shouldn't squabble about totaling your rig. I mean, paint and repair won't work here. Keep us posted and hope you find another that works for you. Dale

RE: Under Bed Struts

Those struts wear out after years of use. We added a memory foam mattress too and then I couldn't lift the bed. DH ordered heavier duty ones than were on it. You don't always have to go heavier as you don't want it so the bed won't lay down, but with the heavier mattress, that was what we needed. They work great. He had also replaced the struts on many/most of the bay storage doors. They are used more and tend to wear out quicker. Dale

RE: Need a New Refrigerator

Don't take it to Camping World. Find a local RV tech. Or if you are up for a road trip, call Leon at National RV Refrigeration He's a young Amish man in Shipshewana who repairs and rebuilds gas absorption refers. He's the best we've ever found and you can trust what he tells you. You will leave a message and then he will call you back the same day. His website has some troubleshooting tips to try first. He will not cheat you and he fixes things right the first time. He does have space to park a few rigs. We take our 40' Phaeton in there. Dale
