RE: Cost of dental work on a small dog?

I hope you are able to rescue this girlie. A pox on backyard breeders who breed these babies over and over again without regard to their health. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

We closed on our "new to us" home today. It is in a motorhome community and we are still going to travel, but we have a place to stay in the winter months and will get some doctors lined up here so if we have to stop for a bit for some medical stuff, we will be "home." Dale

RE: Sleeper sofa replacement

Mastercraft Furniture in Shipshewana, Indiana, makes sleeper sofas for RV's. They make mostly RV furniture. They have a showroom and they even make different mattresses for them including an air mattress. They are very nice and friendly and can answer your questions. Their address listed is Lagrange, but their showroom is on SR5 in Shipshewana. It is a family owned business and 100% made in America. I do think the showroom closes around 3 p.m., but I would call to be sure. There is a lot to do around Shipshewana, so it could be a fun outing. They all do custom work. I don't think you would be disappointed in the quality. Their FB page shows more furniture: Dale

RE: Have no electrical power and no propane on one side of coach

Unplug and fire up the gennie. Does everything work? We had a problem this week here in our park. Power went out one morning. Completely. We checked all our stuff and couldn't find a problem. Had the maintenance guy come out. He plugged in a big honkin' thing to the pedestal and it glowed correctly so he told us something was wrong in our coach. He didn't open the power panel up or anything. We plugged back in, everything ran for about 1 minute, then out again. We bypassed our power management system so we could use some stuff, but our front A/C was out, electric side of the water heater and W/D would still not work. We called a mobile guy. In the meantime, we unplugged from the pole and ran the gennie. EVERYTHING worked. So when the mobile guy got there, he tried the transfer switch and it was all good. Pedestal tested okay. Plugged in again, ran for about a minute, then all shut down. THEN he tested the pedestal again and it showed one leg of the 50 Amp out. He went and got the maintenance guy who kept grumbling it was our equipment. But he pulled the panel. . . Wires all looked good, then he pulled the meter. Looks like it had been on fire. One leg of the base was corroded and deteriorated and then he found a really bad wire. So he replaced all that and all has been great since. It's not always your equipment, but we checked it all first. That's why I say disconnect and fire up the gennie. If everything works, it could be the power itself. Dale

Dr. Doug, are you guys south already? I forget if you stay till after the holidays and then head south or if you are already there. I though the pix of the dogs looked like the motorhome. Dale

RE: allisson transmisson

I can't help you, but we had a problem once with our Allison suddenly going in and staying in limp mode. CAlled just about everybody and then decided to call Allison. A very knowledgeable tech (and not faraway) walked DH through a temp fix and then we drove it to the closest Allison center. There the same tech made the repair (had to replace a wiring harness) and we were on our way. It was still under warranty. The guy knew exactly what was wrong by our description. Save yourself some time and effort. . . call Allison. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

We spent Thanksgiving day with Brandon and his family and Diane, Megan's Mom. It is the first time in 15 years (since we have been fulltiming) that we have spent a holiday with one of our kids. It was great. Brought food back home so we don't have to cook for a few days! LOL We close on our house on Monday. Hoping all goes well for that. Dale

RE: norcold ice maker

DH just replaced the water regulator on ours. It would overfill the ice cube tray and we would get a solid block of ice in the basin. He tried everything he could think of. . . making the cubes smaller, etc. Finally he researched and found the water regulator could be the problem. Ordered one on line and put it in. It has worked ever since. This is the second ice maker in our fridge. The first quit working and he ordered another on line and installed it. I'm glad he's so handy. Dale

RE: Anybody else have trouble packing for camping

I was like that. Not only was getting it ready to go stressful, but unpacking when we got home was just as bad. So we went fulltime. Everything is with me all the time now, so no stress there. But we have 2 motorhomes. We bought a little one to take to Alaska and kept her. I have always outfitted my camping unit with EVERYTHING, including clothes. So all I have to put in at the last minute is food. This is all about to change as we have purchased a home where we can live year round. Still intend to travel, about 8 months out of the year. But the motorhomes will sit right outside my door, so at least it will be easy to access them. Dale

RE: Do your dogs/cats watch TV

None of mine have ever been interested. However, I am on several Scottish Terrier FB groups and there are a lot of dog owners there that talk about their dogs enjoying TV and even have favorite shows. They post pictures of them watching. They really are mesmerized by it, but I don't know what exactly they are seeing. Dale

RE: Family Camping Groups

Before you "reinvent the wheel," try the Family Campers and RVers, aka FCRV Years ago, my parents were in this camping club formerly known as NCHA or National Campers and Hikers Association. They eventually changed the name to reflect their focus. It was and still is one of the best organized camping clubs around. We often attended events with my parents. . . my sister ran for queen one year. It was a really fun organization and each chapter was challenged to do community "works." Their campventions were awesome. There are chapters all over and with different goals, reflecting the makeup of the groups. Dale

RE: Camping Cat

So glad you harness your cats. I still see too many being let out at campgrounds and I worry about their safety. Kudos to you for teaching this wee one early. Dale

RE: Indianapolis

Lake Haven is open year round on the south side of Indy. they have a website, My personal favorite for ease of finding, etc., just off I-70 to the east is the Indy KOA. I believe they are open all year. As KOA's go, they are a bit pricey, but it would be off season for them. Easy access from the interstate and you can't find better owner/operators. Very friendly and accommodating. We stayed for 3 months starting in March one year when I had extensive back surgery. The address is actually Greenfield, but it's very close. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

So very sorry for this development, Richard. Praying things will get better. Is this supposed to be a temporary condition? I'm hoping it is and will clear up. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Yesterday we put in an offer on a house in a motorhome community. They countered and we will accept. We have looked at so many in the last few weeks. Very few do everything we want, but this place is big enough to park both motorhomes. That was the deciding factor. We can get everything we have here and it will be under the canopy. Terry will have a shop area. Didn't really want to spend this much money, but right now we are paying $3000+ a year for storage for everything. We will eventually sell our place in south Texas as well. It will take time to get everything here from Indiana and Texas, but once we do, we will be happy. We do not intend to stop traveling, but we wanted a place to "go to" when we stop traveling and more importantly, a place to stay if one of us should happen to become ill. We will prolly establish doctors in Tampa. They are renowned for their heart doctors. Terry's doctors are all in Indianapolis and he can't tolerate cold weather, so he had to be careful to only get sick in the summer. LOL It is about 2 hours from son Brandon and he often goes to Tampa on business, so we are right on the way. We will be here at least through Thanksgiving, maybe longer, so Brandon is thrilled we will spend the holiday with him. We have some things in Texas we will move here. . . mainly the golf cart. We have no furniture for the new place, but it comes partially furnished. We are buying it from the kids whose dad died. They intended to move here and fixed it up for them. All new flooring, all new Pella replacement windows, and yesterday decided to put a new roof on it before it sold. There is all new paint on the inside and other than covering the pink walls in the dining room, I can live with it all. We won't have any maintenance for a long time. It is a Jacobsen manufactured home and there are new codes for tying these down. It passed that inspection, but the owners decided to beef up the anchors and added more. Once they got it all fixed up to suit them, they just couldn't live in their dad's house. There is still a lot of his stuff in there. . . they should have gotten it all out. . . that would have made a difference. We have room for visitors so and kids/grandkids can all stay and visit. Also, many places have restrictions on the size of dogs. We will be dog sitting some for Lily, Brandon's goldendoodle and when Jocelyn visits they have a standard poodle. They are welcome in this park. There are a lot of things this park doesn't have, i.e. a pool, etc., but we don't ever use a pool and we could put in a hot tub, so hey. . . It was all series of tradeoffs and I think we will enjoy it here. The one neighbor came over and introduced himself. A very jolly fellow and everyone seems very friendly. So we are closing December 1. All parties wanted to do it quickly, but with the Thanksgiving holiday to work around, we decided on the Monday after. We have an inspection to do and that's all. Another reason for being here in Florida is that the weather in south Texas has changed so much in the last 30 years since Mom and Dad first started going down. Today the high in Mission is like 46* with 45 mph winds and rain. Here it's in the 80's. LOL We can handle that! Take care fellow FOOFS and God bless. Oh, Terry's latest blood work shows an improvement in his kidney function. The Entresto they tried him on stopped his kidney function and they were afraid there might be irreparable damage, but they seem to be bouncing back. DAle

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Dan I am glad Pickles is doing better. Our fur kids sure do worry us. Praying she continues to heal. Richard, I am so glad your eye is doing well. It's a scary thing when they start messing with the eyes. I dread the time I need to have something like cataracts removed. Don't have them yet, but everyone in my family has and Terry is starting with them. We continue our search for a place in Florida. Really just want an RV pad with some sort of a building, but would take a park model. But we want a port for over the motorhome. Looked at homes yesterday with RV garages. Beautiful but not really what we want. Once you get into an actual house, then people don't do much outside. In an RV park, people do a lot of stuff outside and mingle with their neighbors. Trying to be methodical and searching an area being moving on. Wish us luck. Dale
