The governor of California suspended the state of emergency for the virus. The significance of which I am not aware. Florida did that over a year ago; plus fined any business that mandated a vaccine card for admission. As a Condo Board member in FL - the significance for us, was that under state emergency orders, we could enact special rules to protect residents; like limit how many people were in the clubhouse at one time; or change our Board Meeting to an outdoor venue. I suspect most "States of Emergency" are geared more towards a physical disaster, than a pandemic?

RE: New Class C vs Used Class A

I've heard a few people remark that they have a "covid unit" - implying there have been some QC issues as employees came and went, so based on that, the used unit might be more problem-free (assuming the original purchasers dealt with the usual gremlins that pop up in any RV) But that being said - I own a 2023 Thor 22E. Its main trip was from Michigan to Florida, plus a bunch of small side trips - and it's been perfect. No glitches or problems. We added a Safe-T-Plus steering assist and a Steer Safe trac bar - it was perfectly fine to drive without those, but now drives like a rock-solid sedan instead of a big truck. Personally, I just like the "feel" of a Class C (plus the safety features built into the chassis); and the new Ford 7.3 motor has plenty of grunt!

RE: Opinions on Yellowstone trip

"Avoid the train station" Sorry - as someone who has been binge-watching the (often grim) Yellowstone TV series, I just couldn't help it ROFL!!!

RE: Small ‘C’. Chev or Godzilla

Our previous Class C had the E-450 V-10. Tons of power; but the "hotfoot" problem was real; and the motor always sounded "revv'd" We got 8.5 mpg Our new C has the 7.3 beast motor. Much lower RPMs and power; and FAST. Got 9.1 mpg towing our Wrangler JLU. No hotfoot. Our son has the same motor in an F-450 and easily pulls a 38' 4-horse trailer with living quarters; his experience, plus Ed's preference for Ford products and the overall "handsomeness" of the E350, more or less made us choose Ford over the Chevy.

They leave such giant holes in our hearts when they leave - so sorry for the loss of your companion

I can't imagine not using a HW preventative on dogs who live outdoors....

RE: New Working LGDs

Penny seems to grasp that the collies are doing your bidding? (and therefore are "OK") Being near a collie sure puts their enormous size into perspective! As an aside - our son just lost his last maremma :-( They seemed very able to discern a "pet visitor" and as long as the visitor didn't harrass the livestock, there were no conflicts. Given the size of our crazy family and how many dog visitors they had, this was pretty impressive discernment!

RE: Prostate problems

One "Side" effect... post recovery I lost about 10 pounds.. and noticed a reduction in edema in my legs (where the 10 pounds came from) My THEORY (Which I will ask about at next Urologist visit) with the bladder empty. Kidneys working better. In short that's a side BENEFIT. Funny this thread re-appeared - since my original cheery statement, Ed developed Ucerative Colitis, and somehow, all that inflammation seems to have set off his prostate? After landing my sweet husband in the ER with kidney failure due to complete blockage, it is now officially "too big" (BPH). He's being a good sport about being catheterized until he can go in for TURP surgery a month from now. He's not looking forward to it, of course; but he's already had TUR surgery to remove a tiny speck of bladder cancer that was found during his CT scan for the UC, and successfully removed.

RE: RVIA Certificate?

LOL!! Let me guess: Jetty Park? It's an amazing place and the closest you can get to a rocket launch - but because so many people want to camp there, they are trying to weed out the party folks and rocket geeks who might show up in a rented U-haul so they can be in the park after dark. We had gone there with our converted Transit Cargo van and stayed for the day - nobody said anything, but we weren't camping, either (we live nearby). I suspect that a factory-built truck camper won't be questioned.

RE: New Working LGDs

This is awesome - I loved the video of the sheep checking out the "new kids in town" Glad you have some protective partners again. My son lost both his Maremmas; but now that they aren't raising calves and piglets, the guard duties are being carried out by "Ricky Bobby" the miniature donkey....LOL!

RE: FR Forester vs Sunseeker - what's the difference?

The next obstacle; The 2401B comes with a recliner option. Oddly, not a single unit for sale in the US has the recliner option, just the dinette. Anyone know how challenging it would be to swap out the dinette for the recliners? The local dealer won't do it. I think CW sells the electric recliners. I have a Class C Thor Chateau, and on the shorter models like mine (22E) there's a TON of stuff inside the dining benches. I had dreams of making ours into more of a "lounge-type dinette" until I saw what was under the seats. Now I like my dinette just fine the way it is.....LOL!

RE: Park pet peeves, Park owner’s turn

Private property means you can pretty much do what you want. OTOH how many would check into a campground posted rules like "Keep your kids out of street, there are no speed limits!", "Owners of small dogs beware, no training is required, all dogs are free to bark and roam free!" or "Play your music as loud/long as you want!" . Ironically, we went to a highly-recommended campground for a family campout that had previously been owned by a church; but then got bought out by a group who supported medical marijuana by the time we went there. They proudly declared "Our only rule is that there aren't any rules". They provided live music for the whole campground - fortunately we enjoy the Grateful Dead and Tom Petty, etc - and they DID stop blaring it around midnight. Our covered picnic table pavilion had the biggest wasp nest I've ever seen - thank God for awnings on motorhomes. And the women's shower, which one paid to use, didn't have a water heater that functioned (they had one on hand, just hadn't gotten around to installing it). They offered kayaking on a nearby river - it hadn't been maintained and a "beginner-friendly" paddle started with a thigh-deep muck-wading entry point, and had more portages than I've ever experienced on "wild" rivers. The one good point - all the campers were exceptionally friendly and nice....LOL! While it made for a slew of great stories to be told later around campfires - I can truly appreciate a well-managed park with sensible rules!!

RE: Pet Peeves in RV Parks

You know what?? Send all the jerks to camp by me. After a health scare with Hubby and seeing my camping days potentially coming to an end - I'm so stinkin' happy to be back camping, even in crammed-in-parking spaces - that I can tolerate ANYTHING. Our new little Class C is cute as a button and keeps things comfy for Ed, so I'm grateful for getting a chance to be on the road again. Deb

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

A friend of ours has something like this to left his chair up and into the truck bed chair hoist Not sure if you have enough clearance in the storage bay? My sis is law had a hitch-mounted carrier with a ramp for her husband's power chair - Amazon carries those

RE: Arctic Blast

Wow, you'd think it was winter or something. If I recollect correctly, it gets cold this time of year pretty much all the time. Guess it's a slow news day. Yes it does get cold this time of year. But .... Not (usually) this cold.. This is Feb-1 cold or worse. Our home is in West Michigan, in a "Lake Effect" snowbelt. They are just telling folks to stay home on Friday (Blizzard Warning). So I'm hunkered down in E central Florida, where it's supposed to be in the 20-30's for windchills and the "Falling Iguana" alerts are out. I guess it's going to be a dangerous holiday for everyone.....

RE: 24 feet versus 26' dilemma, have to decide fast

As I mentioned above, I'm thinking of gutting some useless to me furniture out and putting it in storage, to use my small folding camping furniture instead and even folding it up, as needed, to make space. This might not be an option in a smaller RV: my Thor 22E has a "regular" dinette, and before we actually took ownership, my brain was switching the "regular" dinette to some sort of a "lounge" for more sitting comfort. Once I got the MH, I realized that the dinette benches are heavily utilized for "stuff" - one side holds my freshwater tank/drains; the other side has a drawer, and then the pump and other various boxes. Altering my dinette will be difficult at best - I solved the comfort problem by ordering an "unstuffed pouf" from Amazon - a fabric cube about 16 x 16 x 12" that I stuffed with extra blankets, and it makes a nice armrest/backrest.

RE: Have just lost Goof, my 13 year old Aussum Shepherd.

Not only does cremation make having them "with you" possible; but I find it comforting. Sending prayers of healing for your body, and your heart. Aussies just wiggle their way into your heart...

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!!
