Dan, glad to hear everything went well.

Burch, I've got to replace my batteries before our next outing. What brand did you get??

I have Trojan T-105s and they have gone about 8 years. They are pricey but have lasted well beyond "expiration date" expectations.


I put interstate batteries in the motorhome. The batteries I just replaced were also interstate. I really had no choice as locally that's all I could get on short notice. I am starting to wonder if the batteries are getting overcharged. I keep the motorhome plugged in 24/7 and maybe my charger/inverter is overcharging?

We don't have another trip planned until the end of May. I need to change the oil in the motorhome before the next trip.

ZuZu is continuing to grow. She is so much fun and full of energy but she is stubborn sometimes. We sure do love her. She loves everyone, especially kids.

Do you check the water level in your batteries often??

Probably not as much as I should. I check the water but the last time I checked, one battery was a little low. I don't remember which battery it was but that is probably the battery that went bad and swelled. I try to check every time I use the motorhome but sometimes forget.

I have to remove a step to get to the batteries, so I don't check as often as I should. We tend to travel less and stay plugged in more so there is always a charge going to the battery. Don't know if the converter that charges the battery is a smart one that doesn't over charge the battery, but I've had real good luck with our set up.

Good morning FOOFs. I hope everyone is doing well. I am just trying to get through tax season (I work in IT for a CPA firm). Looking forward to April 18th when the tax deadline passes.

ZuZu continues to grow and get more stubborn! We started letting her stay in our bedroom during the night. We have doggie beds in our bedroom and our two older dogs sleep in the bedroom with us. We tried letting ZuZu sleep in the bedroom starting Friday night. She did very well. Sometimes she was in one of the doggie beds and other times sprawled out somewhere on the floor. She did good again on Saturday night and Sunday night. Monday night and last night she drove us crazy. I guess she slept too much during the workday as we are gone all day and she wasn't ready for bed when we went to bed. I finally had to put her in her kennel in the other room about 1:30am so we could get some sleep.

We don't have another motorhome trip planned until the end of May. We will be staying at the Biloxi Bay Rv Resort and Marina in Mississippi. It's only been open a couple of years and it's close to the Beau Rivage hotel and casino so my wife can get her gambling fix. Its right on Biloxi Bay and we have a water view site.

There is a place in Tarpon Springs we like to stay during the summers when the rates go down (after the snowbirds leave). They have 7 sites right on the water. They are pricey, but we would only go for Friday and Saturday nights. I just checked their summer rates, and they want $285 plus tax per night! We defiantly won't be staying there anymore. When we first started going a couple of years ago, it was around $165 a night. Crazy....

The prices have really gone crazy these past few years. I have a 15 year old Gran Daughter who works part time at a Burger place for $17.00 an hour. She makes more in 4 1/2 hours then I did as an active duty Marine for a month.

Good Morning FOOFs

Glad it is Friday. It has been pretty hot here in West Central Florida. It hit 90 degrees a couple of times this week. We haven't had any rain in over a month. Everything is brown. My grass is crunchy when I walk on it. We really need rain in a bad way.

I have to change the oil in the motorhome this weekend. I really am not looking forward to crawling underneath the motorhome but it's a lot cheaper to do it myself. All the places around here want $200+ to change the oil on a Class A motorhome.

The fur babies are doing well. Monty is getting old. He will be 13 in a couple of months. He is very healthy and still looks great but he can't hold it all night anymore. He seems to drink a lot of water and needs to go out about 4am every night. He will start panting and then will bark when he can't hold it anymore. Pinto is getting grey but is doing well. He just turned 12. ZuZu is still a puppy and keeps us on our toes. She will turn 1 on August 4th. She has really grown and is a big fur ball. Full of energy.

I hope everyone is doing well. We don't have another trip planning until the beginning of May.

Well, it's another Friday. It's been awfully quiet on here. I hope everyone is doing well.

ZuZu is in trouble this morning. I thought she was pretty much potty trained but she has pooped and peed a couple of times in the house the last two days. Not sure what is going on with her.

I still need to get the oil changed in the motorhome. I am going to try and get it done this weekend.

I hope everyone has a nice weekend.

Always good to hear from you and you're right not many post on here anymore.
We have let our Tradewinds sit almost 5 years since we moved to Saint George, Utah. The Winters hear are so mild. We are thinking of taking her out up North this Summer since our Summers here are 100+. Haven't decided where to go yet.

Sorry you're getting those surprises from Zuzu, Burch. If it continues it would be good to rule out any infection, but that prolly wouldn't cause the pooping. Any changes or disruptions to the routine of the household? I'm sure Dr. Doug can chime in.

I'm trying to get jobs done around here so I can take off the end of May. Have a graduation party on JUNE 10 for my great niece, then I have no plans till mid August when my 55th high school reunion will take place in northern Indiana. So I thought I would just travel around Michigan, Ohio, Indiana bumming around till then.

I broke down my patio set and put it in the trailer. Now I have to move the lanai furniture. Some of it goes in the trailer, some comes in the house. I have to put everything up because while I'm gone, it will be hurricane season and that way no one has to do that while I'm gone. Just easier for everyone.

I got a Komo carrier for the back of my motorhome. My new e-bike goes in it and fits nicely. I don't have to fold it up. I sold my other e-bike because it was 70 pounds and I couldn't lift it. This Lite version is 49 pounds. It folds as well, but that's still very awkward for me to do with only 2 hands. LOL I can also put Brendon's trailer (folded up) along with my patio mat windshield covers and some tools, etc.

I am getting this all done before Tuesday when I have my house power washed. I have to have everything up and the drive/ports emptied, so anything I can do ahead of time will be good. Once I put it all up I won't get it back out till I get back end of summer.

Take care fellow FOOF's. Safe travels.
