RE: Who has sold everything and started rving for life

We did it. Started in 2011, rented out the house, got rid of most of our stuff except what we want to take with us. Sold the house in 2015 and are still on the road full-time. No longer workcamp. Did that for about 7 years. Just doing what we want, when we want and if we want now. Staying anywhere from 1 day to a couple of months at places. Enjoying life and will keep doing this for awhile yet.

RE: Harvest Host users

We are members of both but have never used either one of them. Harvest Hosts haven't really been in areas we have traveled with going a distance to get to them, and boondockers welcome , it just feels strange to me to think of parking at someones home that I don't know. Some love that sort of thing, I guess I'm not cut out for that.

RE: Cost of dental work on a small dog?

If she hasn't had a good quality food, her dry skin could be from that. If you improve her diet you should she her skin and coat change for the better within a few months.

RE: Cost of dental work on a small dog?

I have paid from $250 for blood work, cleaning & extractions, pain med/x-rays to $1,500 depending on what area of the country we were in. Do know -- small dogs are more apt to have dental problems because of all the teeth crammed into a small space. At minimum you should get them cleaned at least every 2 years, but yearly is more ideal. The are worth every penny we spend on them.

RE: Traveling Alone

Not alone, but saw a tip once that I thought was smart. When you set up, put 2 chairs up under the awning, not just one. If you put up just one, everyone will know it's a single person in that camper.

RE: Gas station guide

We are a 36' gasser towing a utility trailer and there are very few gas stations we cannot get in and out of. Outside land/pumps usually work. We use google maps, ask for gas stations near what ever city/state and then use street view on satelite view to look at the station. We also use gas buddy to find the best prices.

RE: Furnace blower stops briefly then comes back on.

Our Atwood has a high temperature switch that will temporarily shut down the burner to let it cool. The fan continues to blow warm air and then the burner relights until such time as the temperature has reached what you set the thermostat for.

RE: Dealing with pet passing while on the road

Our pets so far have all been cremated and their ashes returned to us. I do google searches for vets in the area and then read their reviews. I have found some really good vets like this. Our dog is 15 and hopefully this won't happen soon, but we are full-time, and it could be anyplace. We would park and wait while she received treatment, or, wait for her ashes to be returned. Locating a vet is one of the 1st things I do when we arrive at a new location.

RE: What do you do for condensation inside cabinets?

I keep Damp Rid in enclosed storage areas and change them out every couple of months. Have also been known to run heat from a space heater and A/C to reduce humidity when in a cool humid area. Our biggest areas are the windshield, the outermost storage area under the bed exposed to the cold outside, storage under the dinnette booths and husband's closet ( he doesn't get into it 15 times a day like I do mine LOL ). You can purchase these type of things at Dollar Tree for $1 each. Sometimes in near cleaning supplies, other times near fabric storage and closet storage items.

RE: Venting basement storage

Insulation works well. Ours have an insulated liner and ours don't get hot. Don't know if you can buy something like that or if it's only/ or used to be available to manufacturers. Ours is a 2000 coach.

RE: jack pads

We have used chunks of 4X4 cut to the appropriate size. Tried other wood chunks and they always cracked and broke.

RE: suggest a heated mattress cover

Non-powered solution. Get a memory foam topper (you could get twin for her side only) and it holds body heat. Keeps me toasty on the coldest of nights. Flannel sheets are a plus too.

RE: Have no electrical power and no propane on one side of coach

We call ours a battery disconnect - never heard anyone else call it a salesman's switch and we have been full-time and around many rver's for 9 years. Maybe only in a certain area of the country ? -- Anyway - we had that happen and it was the campground power source - circuit breaker. There were thousands of ants in the power pedestal and somehow they were cutting 1 leg of the power off. CB pulled - inside of power pedestal treated, dried out and new circuit breaker installed - our power worked fine.

RE: Anyone use insect (tick) yard spray before they set up camp?

We usually spray home defense when setting up camp but recently had to use anything we could find for ants! We were in TX and had our first encounter with Argentine Ants ! OMG - you don't ever want them. They have multiple queens with each queen having 1,000 workers. Forgot to spray and in the am our rig had thousands inside on the dash behind the drapes. We were at a COE park and they are working with pesticide companies to find something that will work as a long term deterrent on them, not just kill directly. They were also at the next park we went to. We fought them for a week and made sure we sprayed any time we saw one moving anywhere on the outside of the rig at the 2nd park and avoided infestation. They even drop out of the trees onto the top of the rig -- they don't bite, but go after food with hundreds being on 1 little crumb you miss. On a good note - they are predators for fire ants - will make them move away.

RE: FDA announces Dog Foods that can cause heart failure

xteacher - you may want to consider yeast overgrowth as the cause of the itching. Dry kibble is formed with binding agents that are carbs/grains which can contribute. Even the wheat, corn, soy free products. Just a thought as your symptoms in our dog turned out to be yeast. Antibiotic treatment was required to get the yeast under control and low carb diet. The probiotic was actually contributing because of the yeast organisms contained in it. We had also taken her off beef, chicken, dairy but it was none of those things. Just a thought.

RE: Howling wind

Had friends that were so anxious a couple years ago to get south, that instead of staying put, took off down the road on a windy day. Nothing extreme, but 30 with higher gusts. Wind flipped their rig causing truck to also roll. Wife very seriously injured and a year later still in a wheel chair. It's just not worth it no matter why you think you need to go and no matter how great you think you are in handling the rig in wind. Better to just sit and stay safe !

RE: Bigger stabilizer bar improvement in handling?

With an older Ford chassis, we did the "cheap handling fix" both front and rear and it improved handling a lot. We also added a Safe T Plus steering stabalizer on the front. Those 2 things made a big difference for ours.

RE: Knee Pain

Make sure you are drinking enough water too -- dehydration will affect your joints and muscles.

RE: Furnace

Ours clicks - it's the relay located in the A/C that will turn the furnace on.
