Good morning everyone and thank you Walter for the pictures. I had forgotten that so many were there. That was twelve years ago, time flies when you are just cruising through life. I remember the train ride through the gorge and Gary gave Sue and I a tour of the air base. On our way home we came through the small town of Greensburg Kansas. It looked as if it were a war movie set The only thing left standing after twin tornados came through were the Post Office and a church.

Levi got sick while we were at the rally and we had to take him to a vet in Colorado Springs. It was there we got Fella a sling to help him up and down the steps on the camper and the ramp getting into he truck. Still have it.

I hope all is well with everyone. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and bes sure to tell someone you love them.

Good afternoon everyone. I have been suffering with pain in my legs for the past three or four days. At night I have had to sleep in the lounge chair with a pillow under my right leg to prop it up. The pain has been terrible. Last night I crawled into the recliner and went to sleep. When I work up at 6am this morning the pain was gone and I have been like a new person ever since, no pain at all. I can even bend over and pick up something off the floor. Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

We're down in Branson so we can attend a grand niece's wedding close by. We thought we'd stay where the Old Fella rallies all started.[emoticon]

Good morning everyone. Walter look in the pavilion and see if Old Fella's picture is still there. ABC brings back a lot of memories. We had several Rallies there and they were all good ones. The first one we had folks from all over to attend, remember the parade we had, still have some of those pictures.

Our son Scott lost his Ollie yesterday from heart failure. He had been in decline for a long time and surprised he lived as long as he did. This was the first fur baby Scott ever really had and he loved that dog more than life itself. His mom and stepdad loved him also as they would always come to Augusta to pick him up every Thursday and take him to the country for the weekend. Scott would pick him up on Sunday, but on leaving he would always sit in the seat looking out the back window as Pat and George waved goodbye. Ollie learned to ride in the fishing boat and learn to watch Scott fish and get excited when fish were caught. Ollie had a bad heart valve that got worse as he got older. If there were such a thing as heart transplant for dogs Scott would have done that for Ollie.

Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

So sorry to hear about Ollie. It is so hard losing one of our pets. I know Murphy doesn't have much time left as she is getting really old. I have a picture of her in my hand when she was 13 days old and she is now 16.

We are still fighting a water leak in the motorhome. We took a trip to LazyDays this weekend and we had a pretty good rain Saturday night. The paper towel that I have stuck in the screw hole in the ceiling was damp, but not saturated. The last time it leaked the towel was replaced several times as it was soaking wet. So it seems my calking and sealing is helping.

After it finished raining, I got the ladder and looked at the top of the slide roof. There was a little water pooled up on the roof of the slide extending just past where I calked the seam between the tape and the outer slide wall. I could only reach in about 2-3' on each side of the slide roof because the slide topper is in the way. I believe the next step will require removing the slide topper so I can seal the entire seam. Anyone ever taken off a slide topper? I won't take it back to Camping World and I have called two other service centers and they don't want to look at it. So I will need to try and repair myself but I am a little apprehensive about trying to take off the slide topper.

Burch, you may have located the problem. Look on each end of the awning and see if there is a lever that you could flip after you have it extended. Then you should be able to undo the levers that are bringing the awning out. You might even be able to undo the attachments while the awning and slide are in and then put the slide out. That way you wouldn't have to flip the lever. Good Luck.

Like SGT Joe said remove brackets before letting slide out. Then put them back on after putting it in

There are some good videos on you tube. They show slide topper replacement, but show how to lock the spring mechanism and take off the brackets. I need to replace the topper on mine (and re-caulk the edge) but I think it's a little more than I can handle.
