RE: Fulltimers....what's your favorite 5er?

We've owned a # of rigs.....We have an Open Range now....bye far the BEST rig we've ever owned. No matter what rig you look at, look for problems...ESPECIALLY the used ones. If you take your time and look at details versus the color of the furniture, you'll see what's wrong. We've seen rigs with the moulding wrinkling and falling off.......why? We've seen rigs with water marks on the ceiling.........why? Look them over, under, into, onto......EVERYTHING. Ask questions.......look at the salesman's eyes when you ask the questions......body language will tell you more than his/her mouth. :) :)

RE: Yellowstone Nat'l Park

:) :) You scared me...we're headed there next week! We lived at 4300 foot level in Oregon....we had snow every month of the year.....not much snow, but enough to kill a zucchini.....and not every year. :) :)

RE: Bad Gramer

I was once a secretary for a woman in a high position for state govt. She had 2 Master's degrees. She could NOT spell.....the one word I always saw that was wrong was "across".....she'd spell it accross. :)

RE: Planning a trip to Quartzite for the RV show

HOT HOT NOT NOT... In the last 4 years we have yet to encounter hot weather. It is highly unlikely in January. The Q is waaay too much fun though we find that 2 days/nights are plenty. Can't wait to go back next January for our fifth trip. :C We had snow on the local hills last January....and Bouse got snow on the ground for the FIRST time....:) The book store had to close up one day because the winds were SOOOOOO cold! BUT that's unusual...usually, we've really enjoyed and rarely wear a coat.

RE: Planning a trip to Quartzite for the RV show

Ditto about the weather. We've been there with balmy 70s/80s and last year we had a week of COLD COLD COLD. I, too, like Quail Run RV park, though we haven't stayed there (we boondock). If you're planning to stay in Q, then DO get reservations. :) They will fill up during the show. And HAVE FUN!!!! We'll be there, too.

RE: Veternarians

As a lifetime owner of pets, and lots of dealings with vets, I DO believe you have a valid complaint. If they don't like it, they can change their procedures. I'm so sorry for the loss of your pet....that's so hard. BTW -- we are in a town other than our longtime vet's town....took our cat in for an emergency. We were treated as if we'd been coming to them for 100 yrs....I'd say there is something seriously wrong with the clinic and maybe the old vet will do some checking.

RE: Upgraded Oven

I tried pizza stone and unglazed clay floor tile......didn't help mine at all. I believe mine has a problem that's different. My oven's temp fluctuates ...set it at 350 and it goes up to 450, then down to 275. I bought a oven/conv oven/toast/broiler at Costco for $49.00 ....works better than ANY oven I've EVER owned. small though. The oven in the stove is now my bread box.

RE: Video: Sea Lions of Astoria Oregon.

:) Glad you enjoyed your stay in Oregon!!! I try to post on every thread that asks about the Oregon coast.......to PLEASE get reservations. It's HARD for ANYONE to get reservations at the coast. And if you have a big rig, well, HARD~!!!~~~ Those sea lions are fun to look at as a tourist, but let me tell you, the locals there don't like them! We have family there and the sea lions are eating the fish and are MESSY. But mother nature made them for a reason.....and I think they're a kick to watch. :)

RE: Open Range?

Thanks, Amandasgrandma! That info is golden to me. I'm a Texas boy and when I'm not working, I'll be in the hill country. In fact, I just finished a deployment in the NE and will be headed back home to face those 100 degree days. Good to know the Open Range can handle it. You're welcome. DH did remind me we ran a space heater on the coldest times. :) But, with the exception of his hot body thermostat and my cold one, we lived!!!!!

RE: Open Range?

I'm with PegLW.... We love our Open Range...ours is a 2010....had been used 2 weeks, got a heck of a deal on it. :) :) Check out that Open Range forum. I saw your question after I posted, so I'll give you our info. We've been full-timing in our 337RLS fiver for almost 1 year. NO problems with the way it was built, just added our own "bling" to it. :) We have been in 105 deg temps (face it, we needed 2 generators -- we were boondocking), we've been hooked up to elec. in 108 deg temps and the rig kept COOL! We've also been in Quartzsite, AZ when there was snow on the hills around us and wind blowing like hades and it kept us warm. :) :) Did I say I'm happy with it?????????

RE: Verizon in Mexico

We used my Verizon in Los Algodonas without thinking of extra charges. Another couple with us did the same....we were trying to find a third party. We both worried because we don't have international plan but we never got charged. Don't know if it's cuz we were within 2 blocks of the border or not.

RE: Avoiding Sacramento

When does the OP mean by the 'dead of winter'? To us, it means any time the snows start piling up in the mountains. I suspected the OPer meant December or January.

RE: Were can I find a honest repair shop! Salem, Or?

I agree with donn0128...avoid ANY shops in Salem (30 yrs experience there) and go to Dallas.
