RE: Pets riding in trailer

It would be a last resort to have any of our pets ride in a crate in garage of our Toy Hauler. This little rescue dog is with us. It was literally at deaths door. We are it's last stop. There is no giving it back. We will work out the riding situation in the truck. Who knows maybe in a few months they will all be riding in the same crate... I think it is great you rescued the dog. What you are saying above is really the best solution. Dogs are different than livestock and the way we show them love and affection comes back threefold. I am sure with time, love and patience he will come around.

RE: RV parks near Geogretown, Ky

Whispering Hills for sure. It is a very nice and quiet cg.

RE: Correct inflation of trailer tires

I too have been rolling for 30 + years. Always run max pressure in the trailer tires. I currently run 110 in the OR but those tires are G rated. Served me well.

RE: Traveling with a Residential Fridge?

Our res frig runs 7 days at week all year. When we are travelling the truck keeps the inverter battery charged. Never have had a problem. We were at a cg recently that lost power due to a storm. The inverter kept the frig running perfectly for a few hours. I elected not to have a generator since we never dry camp. If something ever happened and the cg power was off for an extended time, I would just hook up the power cord to the truck and charge the battery that way.

RE: Air Ride Pin Box

I experimented with mine until I found the best riding inflation point. Mine has the arrows and the inflate to this point sticker still on it. However I have found that I don't need the max pressure. I expect you will find that point to with time. I have a onboard air compressor too.

RE: going from Class A to TT or Fifth wheel

We went from a fiver to a dp class a and after a few years went back to a fiver. You asked what to look for but that is more of a personal choice. We went to a 40 foot fiver with res frig, large kitchen and much more room than a motor home offers. I would make sure the fiver you look for has the auto leveling system with the auto reconnect and 6 point system if applicable, washer dryer, and whatever else you want/need. With that being said make sure your tow vehicle is capable of pulling what you like BEFORE you buy. Again it is a personal choice but at least go apples to apples when you trade as far as amenities.

RE: Temp monitor for when leaving dogs in RV

If folks would read post BEFORE they post they would see why replies say what they say. As for leaving home we have a cloud cam here with a mifi as well. Not that them barking here makes any difference anyway. The original poster wanted to know what works. The temp stick and a cloud cam with dedicated wifi connection works every time.

RE: Temp monitor for when leaving dogs in RV

I would not worry too much about post like one you have received in regard to leaving your dogs. We have a temp stick and a Amazon cloud cam that works off a mifi Verizon. Not only does the temp stick alert us to a humidity, temp or connection lost on our smart phones, the cloud cam gives us real time video and audio for our dogs. We can talk to them or hear them if they bark. I just love it when someone says they hear our dogs bark when we leave them and I can pull out my phone and say here is the recording where do you hear them barking. By the way, ours do not bark UNLESS someone comes to the door and knocks.

RE: So, how does Highland Ridge Open Range rank?

As you already know you will get a lot of opinions. Most of them will be the ones who have had problems. We sold our dp motor home and went back to a fiver. It came down to Grand Design or Open Range. During our touch and feel period the difference was a mute point. The OR 3x had the insulation we wanted, quality and most importantly the floor plan. I would buy another and recommend it.

RE: Fridge on propane while driving

I have ran it for years and many miles. As you can see everyone has a opinion on it. Some folks replace bearings every year, some don't use their bathrooms, and some folks only cook outside. Just do what you feel comfortable with. Take from all the replies what you would like.

RE: East Tennessee

We have stayed at Anchor Down. While it is nice, it is very hot and not a lot of shade. Mostly asphalt. We go to Up the Creek cg. It is just outside of P Forge and a easy drive to the areas desired. It is also as country as you can get in that area.

RE: Leveling and turning on your refrigerator?

Normally I resist posting on threads like this one but I have to. A frig does not have to be shut off when travelling unless you go thru a tunnel or some type of enclosure. There is generally a mandantory stop to be inspected prior to entering if that the case. The constant movement back and forth when in motion does not affect nor hurt the frig. You also do not have to shut off prior to filling the tow vehicle. If so then folks on cell phones, cigs hanging out their mouths would be in trouble. We have pulled over the country when we had a propane frig and other than the tunnels never ever had a problem. When setting up for a stay then yes you need to be fairly level but off a little bit either way is not a big deal.

RE: We are looking at combo washer dryer

We had the 2100 in our motor home and now in our fiver. It beats the heck out of laundry rooms and/or coming home with a bunch of clothes to wash. We run ours whenever we get a decent small load and don't worry about it. We looked at the stackable type but we went with that combo since we never plan to be full-timers.

RE: Car dollies

When we had our motor home I used a ACME tow dolly. Light and easy to move around if the needs arises. You can see them on line.

RE: Early check in

I scanned all the replies and did not see one that addresses some campgrounds. I know of two that specifically state no check ins until after 1 pm. The reason is the road to them is a one way road which is too narrow for campers to meet. Both of these are scenic cgs and well worth the later check in. Actually one of them has an electronic gate that you cannot get the code to until 1 pm.

RE: Mouse Dilema - What would you do?

Not sure when you said you had not caught a mouse or seen evidence of a visit when you set the traps if that meant they might have grazed the peanut butter without springing the trap. You may already have done this but a trap out of the package will not catch a mouse unless they get on the thing and jump up and down. You have to take some small needle nose pliers and slightly bend the catch until you barely can get the latch arm to hold. Make it really sensitive to touch and you will not have a mice problem.

RE: Which diesel engine oil.

I use Rotella. Your owners manual will give you some idea based on what you plan to do with it.

RE: Water softening system

I purchased the double on the go water softener. It is easy to hook up and a cinch to regenerate. I did not give softeners much thought until my wife told me while we were in P. Forge two years ago her hair was getting dry and brittle. It has really made a difference not only in showering but in washing dishes and in our washer. I am sure some water we hook up to while travelling is very hard. I had not thought about it before. Good investment.

RE: Coleman lantern

I have not used my Coleman stove in a long time but I use my double mantle lantern when I surf fish. Very dependable and I always keep a ample supply of silk mantles on hand.

RE: Ark Encounter

I would recommend Whispering Hills. It is a great park. The entrance road may seem a little narrow but it is not that long. The ark is really worth going to no matter where you stay.
