RE: Casper Hero Livestock Guardian Dog

I'm amazed that the coyote pack was that big - and killing 8 of them is mind-boggling. Good boy Casper!!

RE: New Jeep Gladiator TOAD

We tow either my 2020 Gladiator or my wife's 2022 Wrangler, using the Ready Brute Elite tow bar system, and a home-made version of CoolTech's wiring harness - no messing with the vehicles' CANbus system at all! We JUST had the Cooltech wiring harness installed on our 2020 Wrangler JLU toad - I'll admit I was simply blown away that all the lights work when the Jeep is just sitting there, motor off.

RE: Can you name that sound (squeaking)?

OK, I'll chime in with our adventures with "strange squealings". A month after our trip to Alaska in 2006, our 2004 Class C started to sound like a cat was being killed underneath "MeowMeowMeow" and it was loud. (Attracted the attention of pedestrians) Your sounds are very similar, just quieter. It started at around 15 mph, and stopped at higher speeds. We too did all sorts of crazy things trying to track it down including me pedaling as fast as I could on my bike to pinpoint the sound from outside the MH. Finally decided it was a carrier bearing near the middle of the MH, took it to a truck shop for service. They said yes, the "sealed" carrier had lost its seal and the harsh volcanic dust in Alaska had gotten into the bearings. They replaced the carrier, and all was well. As an aside: we were told this was NOT covered under Ford's drivetrain warranty, because the frame had been lengthened to build the MH and new bearings had been added. We contacted Gulf Stream, and they put us in touch with the company near Elkhart that did the frame lengthening - they were SUPER-nice and offered to replace the bearing for free - would even let us arrive the night before, and would be the first service the next day so that we could be home that night. We decided to have it replaced at our expense locally, because we had a grandchild due to be born and didn't want to be gone. It ended up costing us around $300-ish; but I was really impressed by the willingness of the company (whose name I have forgotten) to help us out!

RE: Can toll booths read transponder w/C overhang?

I was told by PA EzPass folk to mount it bottom-center of the windshield. Did so, and it's worked fine. Thanks! I think that's what I will need to do, too, since my overhang has an "overhang" (dropped area along the front lower edge)

RE: Is Facebook killing this site?

Well, according to FB, I'm about to be kicked off their site, because I will NOT give them my phone number for "2-part verification". They say it's for "security" - but everyone I know who uses their phone for FB gets spam texts and robo-calls. I don't. Ever. Aside from missing pics of grandkids doing cute things, I really don't care. At least lets me hang around ;-) So just do what the scammers do! But this is top secret, so don’t tell anyone! LOL. Sign up for a ‘virtual’ (VOIP) phone number from any one of hundreds of companies. Then do the authentication and then turn off that phone number. See below. Best free virtual phone line providers. Clicky. Oh sheesh - I didn't know that sort of thing exists.... I thought about giving them my childhood landline number if all they want is some numbers...LOL!

RE: “New” vs.”Old” Ovens

I was just looking at the oven in our new Class C, and I can see that it will be easy to burn whatever gets put in there. I HATE to cook, so I was looking at my oven mainly as storage (and it didn't offer much of that either....LOL!!)

RE: Back up camera recommendations?

I bought an inexpensive "Amtifo" camera/monitor from Amazon; wired the camera from that set into the back of our TT, but then added a second camera to the back of our popup truck camper. It paired right up with the monitor, and when wired to the running lights, gave us a nice clear color view of what was going on behind us.

RE: Nell’s Annual Geriatric Exam

That's amazing!! I actually remember you posting about training her as a pup...

RE: Can toll booths read transponder w/C overhang?

OK - thanks everyone!! We'll mount as low as possible but not blocking Ed's view and give it a whirl!

Can toll booths read transponder w/C overhang?

I don't think we owned a toll-paying transponder with our previous Class C. Now that we're back in one (and loving it!), a question popped into my head: Can the readers "see" or communicate with the transponder in its "proper" location next to the rear-view mirror? I realize that many toll booths also offer toll-by-plate, but keeping track of that is a PITA.

RE: I need a toad.

If you're not going to use it as a daily driver and it's for one trip in the spring, I would just rent a car at your destination(s). I agree! "Lot Rot" is a real thing. Ages ago, with our first Class C, we would rent a car for visiting a National Park, for example. But then we camped in Moab, where they had a Wrangler for rent for exploring - and we got hooked on "going topless". Now we have a new Class C and Ed just found a used JLU Wrangler: it will be our toad, but also will be my daily driver simply because they are fun :-)

It's like Christmas!

In more ways than one - for starters, it's snowing like crazy :-( Even though I'm 70, I still woke up all excited this morning (at 4AM - ugh) because today is the day we pick up our 2023 Chateau 22E....LOL!! I'm going to try to remember this excitement, because I didn't just fall off the turnip truck; and realize there will be "issues". But for right now - the thrill of a shiny new RV and all the dreams of places it can take us is pretty heady stuff :-) And I'm crossing my fingers that the salt trucks aren't out yet....

RE: I am curious !

It sounds like Hurricane Nicole did minimal damage other than to those living right along the coast? Probably the same for the west coast and Hurricane Ian. I doubt many Florida Snowbirds will be affected unless they were camping right on either coast?

RE: USDA Announcement

Awesome - and maybe next time, people will take the idea of a pandemic more seriously?

RE: Ooops, not a wolf....

IMO - if you can't tell the difference between your prey, and a domestic pet - then you need to have your weapons taken away.

RE: This net is dying!

I joined a brand-specific group on Facebook; but still come here for the ageless wealth of information. Through the years I've run into a couple of grumps who contribute nothing helpful, so I simply block them :-) I love the wide array of topics available on, like specific info on routes and places to stay. Towing advice; and who makes the best toads. As a dog owner, I appreciate the updates on pet health issues. I'd really hate to lose this forum.
Deb and Ed M 10/30/22 12:05pm Around the Campfire

We got the Omicron-variant Pfizer booster about 2 weeks ago, with minimal side effects (slightly-sore arm for a day). Then we got the flu shot - it was my first time getting that stronger-dose "senior" version and it was more of a butt-kicker. Sore arm, needed multiple naps. Fortunately I am able to indulge in those naps :-) Too many people around me are going back to their old routines - 2 of my daughters attended a concert together and brought home Covid. I feel a lot braver when I've been vaxxed; but we still avoid crowds/concerts, etc

RE: Cold in the bedroom.

Assuming there's some sort of a nightstand, a small electric heater with a thermostat (the kind where you actually set the temperature) would work nicely. Another thought: a small clip-on fan attached to the top of the door (if there's room) might direct the heat downward?

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

We all have our biases :-) I walked into the Chateau and swooned over the bone-white cabinets that made a no-slide 22' RV feel so much more "spacious"...LOL! (Of course, coming from a pop-up truck camper - ANYTHING feels spacious)
