RE: Slide design by Grand Design

i have to ask.you didn't notice this when you did the walkthrough? i spent well over an hour doing my walkthrough and went over everything as well as firing up the heaters and running the fridge on all settings,running the slides and awnings,leak tests on the water and propane systems,the whole nine yards.

RE: How to discourage territorial barking at home

op,have you considered trying a house leash?just snip the loop off a regular nylon leash so it won't snag on anything and when he heads for the window just step on the leash and stop him in his tracks before he gets to the window.it's hit and miss as it sounds like it could be a territory issue but it's worth trying.if he is already leash trained it won't be that difficult or confusing for him.then you can distract him with a favourite toy.it may take him a couple days to realise he isn't going for a walk but it will pass.my rottweiler had a bad habit of chewing the mail as it came throught the slot and this meathod worked for us.

RE: How to discourage territorial barking at home

instead of giving pedantic responses to my posts maybe try to help the op with a solution to his problem as you seem to think you know what works or doesn't,i'm having no problems training my dog with my meathods.you do you.i'll do me..

RE: How to discourage territorial barking at home

that's how redirection works when training.distract it with a treat and eventually they will stop.i've trained my last 3 dogs using this meathod and none have become treat dependent.my sheltie seems to be incredibly smart.when she fake pees outside she gets no treat.she is slowly stopping the charade.once you stop rewarding them the chances of them reverting back to unwanted behavior is slim.a good scratch and loads of praise to go along with the treat is also needed.we all know our dogs are eager to please their humans.

RE: How to discourage territorial barking at home

i'm in the early stages of training my 10 week old sheltie and i'm having great results using liver or chicken treats to redirect her when she starts going sideways.be it barking or leash pulling and running off.i use a chew toy when she starts to nip and jump up,which also works well.she hates other dogs but loves humans so i forsee big problems if i don't remedy it soon.i had a lab that i took too long to train and it really bit me in the butt.i think the trick for you is to redirect him.it will be un uphill battle but it will eventually work if you persist.

RE: Rip off prices from RV Dealers

before my wife retired,her company used to puchase products from Atlas,who supplies the rv industry with parts.the markup is a minimum of 100% between the wholesale/retail according to the pricing catalogue.now i have to hold my tounge every time i need to step into a dealers parts dept.because i know for a fact how much i'm being gouged.

RE: Potable Water Transportation

we used to camp in our truck camper.we used the onboard tank for shower,dishwashing,and used those refillable water cooler jugs with a pump mounted to the top.by the time we were out of water we were out of food/booze anyway.we could usually go for 6-8 days.
