RE: Sticker shock

Just yesterday I was talking with my BF (known each other close to 50 years), he's a senor service adviser for a very large Mercedes-Benz Dealership in the North East. He started out swinging wenches and worked at both smaller and very big dealerships. We were talking about how the dealerships charging "Book Time" for repairs has effected the quality of work. Some of the time "paid" does not even come close to the time that the "Tech" has to spend to complete the repair. This leads to the tech sometimes working on several different vehicles at the same time and billing hours on each one. When I called these "Techs" part changers and not real wrenches, I was surprised when he agreed with me. With all of the computers that all of these new vehicles have makes all these Techs part changers because, they can usually only change a part if the computer says to replace it! Now there are times where they do actually diagnosis something but when they do, it tends to really jack the cost way up!

Tesla X Towing Videos

This video was pretty interesting and showed some real life numbers. First Towing Video Mountain Towing I have no interest in purchasing a Tesla or any other type of Electric Vehicle as they just do not fit in with what my use is as of right now but you never know what the future will bring. When we purchased my DW's 2019 Nissan Rogue, I noticed that they had a "High Speed" charger there for the Leaf's. When I asked them how it was working they said it had been broken for quite some time and Nissan was not going to fix it as they had only sold ONE Leaf!

RE: Older Dog and Night time

I will be getting Macy into see our Vet this week to have her checked out. After reading what Dr. Doug suggested, I've been doing some research and she seems to fit a lot of what is described. Lately, I've noticed her stopping and just standing as if she's lost and doesn't know where she is. When this happens, even calling her name does not get her to even look your way. Usually, she has no problem with hearing and can hear me open "Their Cabinet" and comes out looking for a treat. :-) Another thing that has been happening is when I start to let them out, she will stand in our Dinning Room, it's almost like she's not sure what to do. I'll stand there and call her sometimes she'll come out on her own but other times I have to go in and help her along. Whatever this is has been slowly coming on for sometime but we have not put it all together until now. Hopefully our Vet can shed some light on what is going on and help her be more comfortable. We rescued her shortly after I had back surgery in 2005 but I always say, she's the one that rescued me! Thanks again for all of your caring replies, I'll post again once we see the Vet.

RE: Older Dog and Night time

She could be sensing something wrong with you, like the start of cancer from smoking or some other issue starting up. Excellent point! Don't ignore that. Been seeing just that on "Animal Miracles" where animals sense illnesses in humans. While I'm not discounting any ideas, I do not think this is it. I'm a 5.5 year cancer survivor and see my Oncologist every 6 months for extensive blood work.

RE: Older Dog and Night time

This is Wikipedia's description of CCD (canine cognitive disorder) and it's pretty accurate. There are medicines and OTC supplements that can be helpful. Doug, DVM Thanks for giving me this link, some of it hits home but others not so much. This gives us someplace to start before we got into our Vet so we can have our questions on hand.

Older Dog and Night time

Our Macy (Our rescue Golden / Cocker Mix) is just about 15 now and lately she's been acting a little strange at night. First, Macy while she has always been fine with me, she has always shown more "love" towards my Wife. Recently, usually starting around 9 pm, she wants to be near and almost touching me. I smoke so I am usually outside on our Lanai watching TV while my wife is inside. Macy will come to the door and scratch so I let her out and after a couple of minutes she wants to go back into the A/C (She's smarter than I am :-) ) Tonight she has been glued to me for the past several hours. I've taken her back out just in case that was the problem but nothing changed. What I'm wondering is I've witnessed "Sun Downers Syndrome" in friends before and I'm wondering if this might be something like that and if anyone else have noticed this happening with older dogs? I will be taking her to see our long time Vet but just worry that she is getting older. Thanks Everyone.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Interesting way to put out a Tesla Fire. Not sure I would have done what they did to make sure it didn't reflash but I guess it worked!

RE: Chevy DEF system failure

My Brother In Law (2012 3500 Dually with about 120,000 miles on it) was up in Alaska with his Truck Camper last Summer when the DEF Heater went south and put him into Limp Mode. They had to fly one in for him and that took about a week! He is really considering deleting it but I told him about Canada being tough on people deleting. They go up to and through Canada quite a lot and after I brought it up he is rethinking the idea.

RE: Tire Dealer trying to sell me older tires, what do I do?

Also, the clock starts ticking when the tires are SOLD - and the date of manufacture is only used in the absence of a purchase date (no receipt!) Check the warranty for details. All of the tire dealers near me in Florida say if a tire is 5-6 years old they are not alloyed to repair them! One of these shops is the one that I've dealt with for over 15 years and trust! So, I would go be the date code on the tire not the date on a receipt.

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

Good Morning FOOFs Speaking of barking dogs, Monty likes to bark at our skylight in the kitchen. I had the roof replaced several years ago. When one of the workers replaced the skylight, Monty happened to be in the kitchen at the time. He looked up and saw the worker removing the old skylight and went crazy barking. Now, every time we get any rain, he starts barking and runs to the kitchen. The rain on the skylight makes noise and it makes him mad. I guess he thinks he is guarding us from the bad man on the roof. I hope everyone has a great day! Burch Burch, Our Pap Sandi does not like change. When Christmas comes around and we have to rearrange the living room, she will bark at whatever is now in a new spot. She will do this every time she walks by it until time comes to put it back where it belongs. Now, if we get a package and put it on the dining room table, the DW and I wait for Sandi to notice it and start barking at it. Sometimes, you just need to laugh. :)

RE: Camping World Summerfield, FL

Well, late last week, I received a call for a Gentleman asking me more questions about my experiences. He asked me if I remembered the "Manager" but I could not, he then to try to identify him which I did with his help. I also asked his about how the parking lot at this location is getting really cramped with all of the new campers in the lost and how it would be difficult to stop in there while traveling. He said that he was at this store at the time of our conversation and would talk to the person that he believed spoke to me. Well not that I expected much but I never heard back from him nor the Manager. I get the feeling that at this store, if you say anything against Gander Mountain (or if it might be taken that way) you are wrong. I hope this merger of these two stores works.

RE: Camping World Summerfield, FL

Update- I just receive a call from Brenda at CW Corporate about my issues at the Summerfield store. We spoke for a little while and she said that she will do some research on the store Management and get back to me. All in all I have to say I was very pleased to get the call plus Brenda seemed to be very interested in my concerns. She was also very pleasant to talk with and I look forward to speaking with her again. I did tell her that I would be posting this here as too many times we never hear of the outcome. When I hear more, I'll post it on this thread.

RE: Camping World Summerfield, FL

Hello TugCE, Thank you for your time and sharing your experience at Camping World. I apologize for the lack of RV merchandise available and the manner in which the manager spoke to you and your friend. Please provide the location you are referring to and your contact number in a private message. I will share your concerns with the leadership team. Thank you, Ella Good Sam Care Team PM sent the next day. Hopefully, I will hear from someone after the Holiday weekend.

RE: Goodbye Kaiya

Doug, so very sorry for your loss! While I was reading this I'm sitting here petting our Macy a 13 year old Golden Cocker mix and wondering how much longer we will be blessed with her. We all love our Furry Kids so very much and it truly stinks that they do not get to be with us longer.

RE: Camping World Summerfield, FL

May I ask the OP what items you were specifically looking for that the Camping World did not have? And if the manager said nothing changed, then why didn't you ask him to find those items for you? EXACTLY! Instead of just complaining, why didn't you ask where the wanted items were located? Not that I have to explain anything to you but here goes. We did ask where some of the items where and they were either no where to be found or not to brand / type that we usually purchased there. When the "Manager" came into it he spoke to the two of us like we didn't know what we were talking about and when he basically demanded to to know what EXACTLY I wanted, I was done with him!

Camping World Summerfield, FL

My Buddy(He's been a Full Timer for 6 years) and I made a trip to our local Camping world to look for some RV Parts today. Well, to our surprise it looks like more of a Gander Mountain store with all of the Fishing Poles and other "outdoor" equipment. I had to go to the Front Desk and ask where to find the RV parts that I was looking for, I was told "in back by the service counter" by the person that finally answered her call over the radio. When checking out with 1 of the 3 or 4 items that I was looking for, I commented to the cashier about my dissatisfaction with the changes. She called the Manager over and I told him that I was disappointed with the changes and that I had only found 1 or the 3 or 4 items that I had come in to purchase. His reply was to ask several times for me to tell him WHAT I was looking for as NOTHING has changed and everything is still there. Both my friend and I were both taken back by the attitude and were very surprised and both felt that he was questioning us as if we were lying. After this manager walked away, two different Camping World workers told us that he was from Gander Mountain did not like anyone that did not like the changes. They went on to say that they have been told to PUSH the Gander items and that they have been hearing a lot of the same complains that we had since the changes had gone into effect. My days of going to CW and walking around looking at the merchandise and usually purchasing more than several things that I had not realized that I needed until I saw them are over as most of those little things are gone. Now, if you want to shop for your Pet (which I have done there) or out fit yourself for a fishing trip then CW is the place for you. If you are traveling and want to stop in looking for some "RV" things maybe you'll find it maybe not.
