RE: Allowing non-housebroken dog to move in

You are in a tough situation. You have my sympathy. Suggest you limit the dog to one room unless it is being closely monitored by a family member other than your Mother. That family member is going to have to watch the dog like a hawk and take it to do its business immediately with the hope that it can be trained properly. I would also suggest since it is a small dog that you google options for training a dog to use a litter box. Hopefully others will chime in with more suggestions.

RE: From the mouths of babes...

Reminds me of the First night of three day trip, 3 year old grandson says "PopPop you should live with me". Second night of trip, grandson says "PopPop I should live with you".

RE: Freshwater Hookup Port Question

we use a heavy duty sponge for tile grouting. Cut it to shape of the hole with a slit cut into the inside hole for the hose.

RE: Mystery

what make and model of coach? A bad ground wire is a known problem on Monaco coaches of a certain era. We had ours change several years ago and fixed it by running a new ground wire. We log our mileage every day so knew what it should be. We never bothered to have the odometer reset since we also have an Aladdin Junior system that also records the mileage.

Just make a list of costs that will go away such as property taxes on house, lawn care, home telephone, etc. Make another list of new or increased expenses such as rv fuel, campgrounds, increased data plans for cell phones, etc. Remember that your two biggest expenses - campgrounds & RV Fuel can be brought back down by simply sitting still for a while. No RV Fuel costs while not traveling and monthly campground rates are cheaper than weekly or daily campground rates. Sorry about the formatting issues above.

RE: Stopping at flying j, Cracker Barrel etc

*** Here is a thought.. support a local Campground..?? X3 you spent the $$ for the RV you can afford a camp ground. for everyone who says go to a campground, there will be another guy complaining about the person who woke them up pulling into a campground late at night and then leaving early in the morning

RE: Stopping at flying j, Cracker Barrel etc

All Stays WalMarts check out this website for WalMarts that allow overnight parking. I'm with you as far as not wanting to be that person who wakes everyone in the campground up when pulling in at 10 p.m. and then again at 6 a.m. in the morning.

RE: New to class A

unless you like camping in urban areas or you camp with other people who have a toad or you only camp places with their own shuttle service, I don't think you will be happy not having a toad of your own. just my opinion but for us, we didn't buy a motorhome so we could sit in a campground or spend our time getting rental cars.

RE: Atwood Furnaces 8531 & 8520

Depending on what gasket he is talking about, wonder why he did not replace it while in there??? my thought exactly! Because very few service centers have the required Gaskets. INCLUDING my Service center. It is extremely rare for a professional to damage or lose the required gasket. There is only 1 and that is the plate gasket that holds the burner in place. Doug Thank you Doug - that makes sense. Wish they had told us that.

Atwood Furnaces 8531 & 8520

Looking for suggestions/recommendations for where to have our furnaces serviced in central Florida. DH takes care of routine maintenance but given the age of the furnaces wouldn't mind have someone else take a look at them. Back story - we are the original owners of our signature rig (2007 Monaco Knight). The furnaces are original equipment also. This past spring we had a problem with the front furnace (Atwood 8531) and had to have the burner replaced. The service tech told us (after the repair was all completed and put back together) that we should have an inspection done and possibly have the gaskets replaced. At that point we were already late to hit the road and it was late spring already so we decided to table the issue until the fall. Wish service tech had mentioned it before he put it all back together so we could have had it done then. Thanks for your time.

RE: Window shades?

We replaced ours with MCD shades back in 2013. We consider them one of the best things we have added to our motorhome.

RE: Printer

How often do you print things at home? Could you go a few weeks without printing something? If you don't get a printer, I would at least be sure to have a thumb drive so you could easily take files to another location for printing.

RE: electrical question

either way would work. It sounds like you are going to purchase a Progressive Industries product either way which are both good choices. If it were me, I would purchase the 50 amp product if there is any possibility you may upgrade rv's at some point. Cheaper overall to purchase one PI product now than to purchase one now and then another one later.

RE: full time 101 questions

If you are thinking of buying new so you will have a warranty, the warranty won't be worth much if you can't take it in for warranty repairs. They don't come to you.

RE: Grand Canyon 2020

be sure to check out Lower Antelope Canyon in Page AZ if you go from one side of the Canyon to the other. Google it. We hiked the Canyon rim to rim from north to south in 2017. Fourth trip to the Canyon. Plan on 5 hours to drive from one side to the other. great scenery on the drive too.
