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

Just got back to Elkhart from Indy. A long 7 hours driving time today. Terry is doing better. . . the fluid is coming off. The doctor did increase the one drug which kickstarts the lasix. It's what has been getting rid of the water this week and he wants to see that continue. That is temporary until the water comes off. His blood work was good. They called to say that everything is stable and the kidney tests have actually improved. Whoo hoo! He is feeling better. Thank you all for your prayers and best wishes. Dale

RE: Things to do in Alaska?

We enjoyed Homer and while there we took the excursion over to Seldovia. Neat little village. Not a lot of people. We stopped into a shop. The proprietor's husband was the police chief and she talked all about life on the peninsula. Only way in is by boat or plane. Really enjoyed our visit and not too big, so you can walk around the entire place. Dale

RE: We always unhook, even on an overnight stop

The key is to just be prepared. When DH's ICD fired twice one morning (meaning his heart had stopped and had to be restarted), the toad was unhooked from the Class A and I followed the ambulance to the hospital. When we returned home later that morning, a fellow camper asked me. . . "Honey how are you going to leave if he can't drive?" I said, "I will get behind the wheel like I do anyway and drive us out." She couldn't believe I could drive the big rig. And Actually now, our roles are somewhat reversed. I do ALL the driving because of his numerous heart issues. But if something happened to me, I know he could get behind the wheel and drive it somewhere if he had to. We each need to be able to do anything necessary. Dale

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

Prayers for Charlotte and Charles. And for you, Richard. Hope all goes well for everyone today. Terry seems to be slowly recovering from his bout with Entresto. His kidneys are functioning again and the doctor gave him another pill to make the lasix work better. From Thursday to Sunday he lost 5 pounds of water weight which is great. He has a cardiology appointment on Wednesday, so we will see what the doctor thinks. He's still uncomfortable but not as much as he was. Hard to get in/out of a car. Dale

RE: Electrical help!!

Since you are in Ohio, why not take it to Shipshewana, Indiana, to National RV Refrigeration, aka Leon Hershberger. He is a young Amish man who knows all things about RV refrigeration. He won't cost an arm and a leg and is VERY good at his job. He will troubleshoot and fix it. Here is his website: National RV Refrigeration You will have to call and leave a message and he will call you back. It's the Amish way. Dale

RE: Dale Hollow Lake State Resort

Unless they put it in in recent years, there was never sewer at the park. There is no water view. You must drive down to the boat ramp to see the water. Too far to walk. Camped there a lot in the 80's-90's. Dale

RE: Plug it in or shut it down

Leon, from National Refrigeration, our go-to guy for all things RV Fridge ( told us if we leave our RV for a week unattended to shut down the fridge. We recently had it in for service and it sat for a month off and started right back up. Dale

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

Sorry to hear this, Richard, but hopeful this could end up correcting some of the issues you have been having. Terry has had a rough month. They changed him to that new drug, Entresto for his heart failure last month. It actually helped him in some ways till his kidneys nearly quit, which is one of those "not mentioned" side effects. After 7 weeks and gaining 22 pounds, they took him off of it. It requires 3 days off before starting back on his old medicine and those 3 days are really rough. But last night he started back on the old one and he went from looking like he was half dead to fixing me breakfast this morning. Oh happy day! The kidneys are starting back doing their job and things are looking better. Course we will still have issues we had before when they decided to put him on Entresto, but I really thought that after 21 years of this medicine doing a good job, why not just increase it a bit. Does that make sense? So, Entresto is NOT for everyone, regardless of what the adverts say. He was happy to try it, but glad to be off it now. We will keep you in our prayers, Richard. Terry had to deal with prostate cancer 8 years ago. Because we fulltime, he was able to go to Houston to MD Anderson. He couldn't have surgery, but had a type of radiation which has done well for him. Dale

RE: Newmar Dutch Aire 4304

According to Nada, a 2010 DutchAire base pricing, low retail would be $134,000. That is for the M-3404. I didn't have info to put in, but that is the base pricing. Dutch Aire According to that, it doesn't sound like a bad price. You would need to look at the condition, service records if available, and how well it was cared for. Dale

RE: Camping with Dobermans

I'm sorry that deal didn't work for you but better to find out before you left and were able to cancel the deal. Keep looking. I'm sure you will find something that will work. Best wishes. Dale

RE: Camping with Dobermans

My four Scotties were all wonderful dogs. And they all liked other dogs. But if one would sniff Neal's a$$ beyond what he thought was reasonable, he would let them know. LOL Another time my Bailey nailed a pom when he jumped off his owner's lap and charged up to my two on leashes walking along the road. Sorry, but the rules say your dog must be leashed. Don't fault my dog for defending himself. And lastly, the one comment I love from pet owners whose dogs are NEVER leashed in a campground. . . "It's okay, he's friendly." I say, "Well mine might not be." In truth he was, but again. . . if a dog charges up to mine. . . all bets are off. I report these to the campground owner. He is very adamant owners follow the rule and he will talk with them. If they don't abide by the rules, he tells them to leave. Dale

RE: Camping with Dobermans

Your dogs are gorgeous. I would rather be parked next to your dogs than the little yappy ankle biters. I had a Dobe and feel like you do, it is essential that any big dog be trained well. My dog was both sight and voice command. That said, ANY dog should be trained, but unfortunately people are of the mindset that smaller dogs aren't big enough to hurt anyone, so they are "off the hook." A tragic thought at best. I have seen many dogs on the "commonly restricted" list at campgrounds, but like has been said, private camps are the most frequently restrictive due to insurance. A well trained Dobe is a wonderful ambassador for the breed. Hope to see you out there. Dale

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

Richard, we used to care for a feral cat when we had our house. Our two Scotties loved to chase her off the deck. I felt badly because I would feed her and provided her a warm hut for the winter and the dogs chased her. I could never touch or pet her, she didn't allow it. One day I let the dogs out and she was on the deck. They quickly gave chase, but this time Miss Kitty didn't run. She arched her back up and I thought, "Oh no, we're going to have a fight." She mewed demurely and you never saw two dogs put on the brakes so fast. They almost ran into her, but they got stopped. Then she reached out with her face and touched noses with them. I thought carnage would ensue, but I was wrong. From that day on, they were all three friends. I have pictures of them laying together in the sun on the porch. She would follow them around in the yard. She would rub on them and they let her. It was so cute. When we sold our house, I arranged for a neighbor to care for her, but before we left she disappeared. She was an old cat to begin with, so I assume she died. But I learned a lesson about animals with her. Dale

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

Arrived at JP Coleman State Park in Iuka, Mississippi last this afternoon. Uneventful trip so far, just the way I like it. We can check into Piney Grove tomorrow not far from here. Think we are headed to Red Bay first to see if we can find any jacks for the motorhome there. That poor little kitty sounds like coyote feed to me. Wish the owners would take more responsibility for her and keep her in. Dale
