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

We are back in Indiana. We drove a rental car up to get our little motorhome that's in storage and get our cargo trailer and pack it with stuff in storage and my organ. Then we will drive it back home to Florida to unload and find a place for stuff. We won't be able to get everything, but it's a start. We don't really have to interact with anyone along the way. We will stop and get the Miata battery we left at my Mom's so we have a car to drive. Then the Mazda goes back in storage till July. We will visit with Mom outside social distancing of course. A few weeks later we will fly up and rent a truck and load the rest of the stuff up and drive back. Then the middle of July we fly back up for the great niece's graduation. The only thing left up here will be the Miata and we are going to drive her back to Florida. Talking of a leisurely drive. Not sure how much shifting these old bunions can take. But Terry is driving the cars a bit, so he will be able to help. He wants to do the "tail of the dragon." It will be s . l . o . w for us oldsters, but will still be fun. Everyone take care. Dale

RE: Should I carry a spare tire?

Having been in a somewhat similar situation, I would at least carry the tire if you have the space to put it. Road service can always mount it for you. I got taken really bad for a tire, like almost 2 times the price, when I had a problem. Won't be without one again. Same thing happened to us. The tire was salvageable, but the tech sent to us insisted it was shot and wanted to take it with him. We kept it and had it repaired the next morning. He made us wait 6 hours on the side of the road and then brought a used tire with a sidewall patch and charged us almost $400 for it. He put it on and like I said, we drove 22 miles to a tire shop we had called and they fixed us up the next morning. Since then we carry an unmounted spare. It determined what new toad we got a few years ago because we keep the tire in the back end of the toad, a Flex . It just fits. . . 39", that 22.5" tire. Have only needed one that one time in 15 years of fulltiming, but we wouldn't be without it. Dale

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

Before we went full time, we had a feral cat who hung around all the time. I'm not really a cat person, but I am an animal person and don't want anything to suffer. I started to feed her as winter approached. Eventually I put a cat house filled with straw out on the deck and put a rug over it so she could keep warm. Most of the time she slept on top of it, but I was satisfied she could stay warm. Even though I fed her well, she still brought me "gifts" she had killed. The dogs always chased her till one day she didn't run. The dogs braked so hard they nearly ran into her. They all became friends and even though I could never touch her, she and the dogs were close. I made arrangements for a neighbor to care for her when we sold our house and went full time. But she disappeared some time that summer and I'm sure she died. She was an old cat by that time. I think your neighbors are wrong about the cats. They need to take responsibility to care for them. Good luck with your doctor's appointment Richard. Hope you can find some answers. Dale

RE: Asking the cooks! I need new microwave.....

A convection oven is a regular electric oven with a fan to circulate air. . .. period. That's it. There is no learning curve. I tried all the "adjustments" when I got mine, and didn't need any. I set the temp for what the recipe calls for. If it says to bake for 25-30 minutes, I do 25. Perfect every time.I have 3 convection/micros. . . all different brands. One I will bake usually for 5 minutes under the minimum time. . . the rest I don't. Every oven is a bit different, just like your home models are. Super easy and I would always go for the convection/micro rather than an RV oven. Dale

RE: Norcold refrigerator door seal problem - strange

Is it still under warranty? If so, I would pursue replacement. Our seals have been gone on our Norcold 1210 for years. Leon at National Refrigeration suggested we use Gorilla tape. We placed it where the seals came off and it has been working ever since. Refer is over 10 years old. Dale

RE: Do you use glass plates ?

In our home I used Corelle ware. When we started fulltiming I bought a good quality melamine by Pfalzgraff. I still use those daily after 15 years. We recently bought a house in Florida. I can't find a Corelle pattern I like and the other stoneware is much too heavy for me to lift into the cupboards. I found a good quality melamine at a home store and bought 8 place settings. Still looking for Corelle that I like, but I really do like the melamine i bought. Dale

RE: levelers

We replaced our Atwood Levelegs last summer in favor of the Bigfoot system. Very happy with them. Customer service is excellent. We have a Phaeton DP. Dale

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

I'm glad we are at our home in Florida for this. Phaeton Place is about 10 steps from the front door where she sits under her bus port attached to the house. Monday we called our doctors' offices in Indiana. Terry wanted to continue to doctor at our "old" places till fall when our transition to Florida would be complete. All the doctors were rescheduling as much as 90 days out. We opted to "telehealth" with our primary physician, so we have that coming up. Terry's cardio has not responded to our phone message. . . typical since our wonderful pacer nurse retired. So our calendar is clear till the end of May when I wanted to be in Indiana for my great-niece's graduation. But that can be cancelled if need be. The biggest drawback of being stuck here is that we have stuff in storage back in Indiana that we hoped to have here by now to unload and put away. I have hobbies and have been keeping busy, but Terry doesn't have hobbies and is bored to death. We aren't going anywhere or visiting anyone. We go out for a walk in the morning and rarely see anyone. Ride our bikes in the evening. . .same thing there. No socializing. Hope all of you are well and staying inside. Dale

RE: Field Walk

Predators hear our 2 dogs before they get close to the sheep; their first line of defense is barking to discourage predators. These dogs stand between the sheep and perceived threats. Wendy had experience killing coyotes before we got her. When threatened the sheep flock up making it easier for the dogs to provide protection. I do remember your comments about Wendy's past. :-) I have friends who just got a livestock doggie. He is a cross between Wendy/Sam. Big, big pup. He's their second dog, and so far seem to be a good team. Dale

RE: Bigfoot Hydrolic Jacks - Electrical Connection HELP!

We have the Bigfoot System on our Phaeton. On our controller is a phone number you can call ANYTIME. They are a family owned company and pride themselves on their service. That phone, after hours, will ring into one of their homes and someone will answer. Trust me, I've tried it an it works. Dale

RE: Install new cab over curtain in a Bigfoot TC, HOW?

We have a B+ and to block out the light, I used a tension rod across the cab then used a heavy fabric for my curtain. Don't know if that would work for you, but it didn't required any screws, etc. When we went to Alaska, I bought us sleep masks. They were very light weight and we got used to them quickly. They worked well. Dale

RE: Field Walk

Loved the video. It just is amazing that 2 dogs can protect those sheep from predators. I guess when they see the dogs, they don't want to mess with them. Dale

RE: class a motorhome tires

I am wanting to replace my tires, size 275R7022.5 with Toyo tires. where would I find them in Indiana? Also, does anyone have any experience with Firestone MH tires? We buy tires for our Tiffin Phaeton at Sam's Tirein Bristol. Not to be confused with Sam's Club. Small reputable dealer. We just bought a whole new set of MIchelins there in August (our second set from them). They accept the FMCA plan as well, saving about $50 per tire. I believe they sell the Toyo tire as well. We have friends who have those and swear by them. We have just always run Michelins and are very happy with them. Sam's may do Firestones as well, I am not certain. Very efficient, good quality workmanship. They are located on SR120 just east of town You won't be disappointed with them. We go ahead of time and remind them we want newly produced tires, make an appointment, talk about how to do the FMCA discount thingy, then show up for the appointment Dale.

RE: Bounder with Atwood jacks

Our Atwoods finally gave out last summer. After replacing all of them at least once and a couple of them twice ($750 each), two broke at once. We started looking. Yes, Atwood sold out to Lippert, and Lippert does not make or support the Atwoods. We could only find used jacks at businesses who took them off coaches and replaced them with a different system. We didn't want to put used back on. Then we were told it was likely our controller that had gone bad. We could actually find that on line, but a new controller and 2 used jacks was not the way we thought we should go. We had a BigFoot system put at their factory in White Pigeon, Michigan. It was about $5800, but we full time and use our coach every day, so we bit the bullet. We are extremely happy with the system. They are quick, reliable and the customer service is second to none. It is a family-owned company and their service line rings into one of their homes after hours. Dale

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

I included Duchess with us when Butterscotch was put to sleep. She is normally very afraid at the vet's office, but that day she was 100% focused on Butterscotch. She was on the table with her and kept her muzzle in Butterscotch's face until she breathed her last. After a few minutes, she indicated she wanted down and she was ready to leave. She grieved for Butterscotch after that, but she knew she was sick. I feel like she may not have understood everything, but she knew Butterscotch was not coming home. I did this because when I had Bailey put down I didn't take Neal. Neal was handicapped and also had seizures. Bailey was a loner, although he tolerated Neal, but I never knew how much Neal relied on Bailey. We almost lost him as he just really went off the deep end. Physically he was sick and it took a long time to get him back on track physically, but he never got over losing his best friend. He did not understand where he went and kept looking for his "lost" friend. It was terrible to watch. So I decided after that, I would include the other dog(s) so they would "know." Just something to think about. Dale
