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

Travel safely, Burch. Yeah, we just got here to Florida and . . .surprise. . . a storm system coming our way! Oops. But I think it's going to track north of us. Hope so. Stay clear! Dale

RE: Rodent???

We prefer to trap as well for the occasional rodent that gets in. Also, I don't like poison because of it killing owls and other wildlife that will feed on the poisoned mice. I don't want to take the chance that a rodent will crawl into a space I can't reach and die.

RE: Stink Bugs

They actually can bite, or pinch, whatever. I once took out a pair of socks and put them on. Shortly, I experienced an uncomfortable feeling on the top of my foot. Thought I had laced my shoes too tight, so adjusted. It happened again. I finally took my sock off and there was a live stink bug who had found a warm place to hide in my sock! There were actually two in there and I had a mark where he had been pinching me. Didn't break the skin, but it hurt a bit anyway. Dale

RE: Window Haze

We had RV Fog Doctor in Searcy, Arkansas fix ours. $200 a window. WE had to have 9 windows done. Some were etched too badly to use the same glass and required new. Dale

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

Dan I almost hate to bring this up, but sometimes the obvious is what we overlook. Have you examined her paws thoroughly for ticks or something else caught between the pads of her feet? I'm so sorry Pickles is having so much trouble. Wish they could communicate with us. Dale

RE: Stink Bugs

Unfortunately, they are not native and have no known predators. We use a Bugzooka which sucks them into a chamber and then I let them die in there and put the carcasses outside when we leave a camp. We have been dealing with them for probably 10+ years, but we don't have that many anymore. I've been getting a half dozen every week now. Dale

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

Wished we could have been there as well. But no matter how few, the group makes everyone feel welcome and since we've all been on this forum f o r e v e r . . . it's like connecting with old friends! We found that out when we joined in for the first time last year at Berlin, Ohio. Have a great time! Dale

RE: 4000 Onan Microquiet immediate shutdown

We used to try and troubleshoot our generator problems. No more. They get so frustrating and even if we would get it to work, next time. . . no go. When we have a problem now, they go to the nearest Onan Coachcare and we have never been disappointed. They always fix them up. I do know that if they sit with gas in them for too long, they need professional help! Dale

RE: RV trip 14 nights itinerary help

We have owned both motorhomes and travel trailers in the past.  All the RV rentals places in Anchorage will not allow you to tow a car so we are thinking we will rent a truck and trailer trailer (though private owner) so we have a vehicle to get around.  Thought on this please.  Also this is the 2nd attempt at an itinerary.  Should we add/delete anything? Are we staying too long or not long enough in each place? Any driving distances from place to place too long? The only reason we are considering swinging over to Matanuska is because I read on a TA forum that the scenery is beautiful but haven't seen anyone else mention it.  Also considering staying 2 nights instead of 3 in Denali. Day 1 fly into Anchorage, pick up RV, get groceries then drive to Matanuska Glacier. Day 2 Glacier Hike and Zipline Day 3 Drive to Denali National Park - ATV tour in the afternoon Day 4 Shuttle, bus or hike Day 5 Dog sled and more time in the park Day 6 Drive from Denali to Talkeetna - activity in the afternoon Day 7 Drive to Portage - activity in the afternoon Day 8 Drive to Seward - possible afternoon fishing trip? Day 9 Day cruise Day 10 Kenai National Park Day 11 Seward to Homer Day 12 - Bear viewing in Katmai Day 13 Homer to Cooper Landing Day 14 Cooper Landing back to Anchorage We went to Alaska in 2013. First, we took a 22' motorhome. No need for a toad. We could drive wherever we wanted to go. Nice and convenient. Second, do yourself a favor and buy Mike and Terri Church's book: Alaska Camping They are good about telling you what there is to see and how many days you will want to stay. . . what to see, what to skip, etc. Best reference ever. Mike is an Alaska native and Terri moved there after college I think. Info on campgrounds, etc. And they keep things updated on their website. Most of the rental places rent the smaller Class C's and truck campers. Perfect for getting around Alaska. I would never "borrow" someone's rig to take anywhere. Alaska can have some bad roads and I wouldn't want to be responsible for someone else's property. Great trip. Wish we were going back. Dale

RE: Atwood Jacks/Levellers issue

Hope you can get them fixed. Our Atwoods gave up the ghost this spring by breaking the 2 rear jacks while trying to level the coach. Caused the coach to "buck" wildly tossing us up and down in the front seats like rag dolls till I hit the on/off switch. I was able to retract them then and that was the last I used them. We switched out to a Quaddra Big Foot system. So far we are liking them. I do like that now I have a switch to dump the air where before it was done solely by the Levelegs system. Incidentally, we looked all over for new jacks to replace our broken ones and were told by a former Tiffin employee that it was likely the controller that failed and caused the jacks to break. So not only would we have to buy jacks, but a controller. Very hard to find (almost impossible) parts. So bit the bullet and bought a new system. Our warranty plan paid for about half of it though. :-) Dale

RE: Route 35 near Jackson, OH

When traveling that route, we normally spend the night at the Gallia Junior Fairgrounds in Gallipolis, Ohio. FHU, for $20-25. Large campground, grass, but great for overnight. We have also stayed a couple nights at the Chillicothe, Ohio, fairgrounds. About the same price, I think. Dale

RE: Dead microwave

My DH has fixed my Sharp convection twice. Once the turntable motor quit working. He researches on the internet and then finds a YouTube video showing how to fix it. He ordered the motor and fixed it. A couple years later the door latch broke. Again he fixed it. The latch was $4. Still running strong going on 15 years. Dale

RE: Good trip-bad repair shop

I'm interested in what happened. What caused the overheating and what was the eventual fix? And what kind of coach do you have? Dale

RE: Back hurting from bed in travel trailer - need advice please

I picked up a Dynasty Mattress 10GEL from amazon. Was a little leery seeing the price point is pretty low. But have been extremely happy with it. Prefer it over mattress in my house! I have had serious back problems all my adult life. 2 years ago I had extensive surgery and then we got a new Dynasty Mattress from Amazon. It is amazing and I can sleep on it every night with no problem. It is firm enough that when DH moves around or gets up during the night, I never move. Prior to my surgery, however, we slept on cheap Intek air mattresses with a 2 inch foam topper. It was the only thing that would give me relief. The sleep number beds are really cheaply made and so over rated. The cheap air mattresses did the trick for us for 13 years of fulltiming, until I had my surgery. Incidently, my surgery was a great success and I am pain free now for the first time in 46 years. The other thing is what is your base? Is it a platform bed? It should be. . . any kind of sofa bed or dinette, etc., is NEVER going to be comfortable. If your platform is not solid. . . one piece with NO seams, etc., get a sheet of plywood and put it down. I'm like the princess and the pea. If there is one piece of anything under the mattress, I'm going to feel it. Good luck. Dale

RE: Splendid Washer/Dryer

Too many clothes and too much soap are the biggest culprits. I recently did a load and the stretch jeans came out so wrinkled they were unwearable. I put them back in with one other item and rewashed them without any soap. Came out perfectly. Dale

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

The mountains here haven't begun to turn into fall colors yet. With it being so dry we nay just go from summer leaves to no leaves at all, just bare trees ready for winter. I sure hope you get some rain. I have never seen the leaves change colors and was looking forward to it during the Sevierville trip. Burch What I've always been told and it does seem to ring true is that in drought years, there won't be red colors to the leaves. . . only yellow and brown. But rain supposedly makes them turn red.

Leaves are starting to turn here in northern and central Indiana. Not big time, yet, but a few trees. Dale
