RE: KOA membership

When I first started RV'ING many years ago I purchased a KOA membership. I did not use it enough to recoup the purchase price. Only you would know if you will use it enough to be worthwhile. A lot of campgrounds have dropped their KOA affiliation so I would check the areas where you plan to travel to make sure it is a viable option.

RE: How many Miles Expected on PW Excel?

Depends on how well you maintain the vehicle. Modern motors maintained and not abused are capable of 300k miles.

RE: RV lot OWNERSHIP - deeded lot ownership, live year round

We have our own " campground " of sorts. My DW & I own 5 1/2 acres about 8 miles out in the " country ". 45ft slab with rv cover, covered patio, septic, water, electricity, and two barns/shop. We go out there and piddle, just relax. Easy to just hookup & go when we want to travel. I added another FHU if friends want to come out with their rv for a few days. . No hassle of campground/HOA rules. Just don't ask how much time/$ we have in this place :SYou can't really look at the cost that way. Some people spend 12k on a weeks vacation to a all inclusive private resort. At least you have something to show for it and can resell when your done. I have a seasonal lot that some years due to obligations I have used very little. If you look at cost per year on the least used years it would run $250. a day on the most used years the cost drops to $58. If I use it all summer the cost drops to $23. dollars a day. Now don't ask what the pontoon boat cost per use.

RE: Invalid VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)

I just went through a similar situation with a scooter. In my case the insurance company made a mistake when they entered the number. There is usually a vin stamped on the frame.

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

Dcmac214- I think you hit upon a important point. People with a limited amount of time are trying to make the most of it with other activities. Seasonals who are there for the winter/summer look at it as a community.

RE: TT television

Don't forget some library's have DVD's as well. Where my seasonal is I can't get over the air tv. With a subscription to the local library I get the movies rent free (limit 3 at a time). TV'S should not be turned on when cold until the RV warms up of a winter. Condensation forms and can damage the tv.

RE: More power for Godzilla

Looking for insane power from your 7.3L Ford? ProCharger announced development of supercharger for F250. ArticleI'm surprised it took so long. Now for twin turbos feeding the supercharger.

RE: Which is the best value - Airstream or Avion

I like the old Silver Streak aluminum trailer as well. Kind of like the Avion in it's more square.

RE: Which is the best value - Airstream or Avion

No first hand experience but have always heard Avion was better built.

RE: Electric Powered Trailer - Airstream

Why bother...just put on VR goggles, sit down in front of your 9.2 stereo system cranked up and not worry about MPG, speed up steep inclines, backing up, passing semi's and worrying about making it to the next station...Sadly that is probably the future, similar to the Holadeck on Star Trek.

RE: What is wrong sir?

Probably how it left the factory, dealer will fix it.

RE: Electric Powered Trailer - Airstream

Just think if the truck in control is completely autonomous you could ride in the trailer sitting in your LazyBoy watching tv. The rig could set itself up and you could have a camping experience without ever leaving your chair or deal with that pesky human contact. When your done it could drive itself back home and put itself away.:B

RE: Electric Powered Trailer - Airstream

You wouldn't need a 7.3 if this idea actually works. A NA 4 cylinder in a vehicle that can handle the tongue weight of an Airstream can be used. I believe the idea here is the trailer won't put any towing load on the tow vehicle. I assume (like my Traxass electric RC truck) the trailer braking would also controlled by the motor and speed controller. I can see this technology helping tremendously when towing in strong head winds, at higher elevations and up steep grades.Not much different then unmanned locomotive engines controled by the maned lead locomotive on trains.

RE: Animals in commercials

DOTL I was pleased with the outcome of the Superbowl as well.

RE: Animals in commercials

I, too, watch the Super Bowl for the commercials and most were just plain stupid. The WeatherTech commercial was very moving but it made me think about how so many pet owners cannot possibly afford this type of treatment.I had a Collie Strider that went through the protocol for treating Lymphoma. At the time there was less then a 3 percent chance of full recovery. The end cost for my local vet and K-State was around 6k. In the end it extended his life 8 month's. I hope that advancements will be made and the cost will come down. You have to start somewhere. I did not have a spare 6k but made sacrifices in other areas to make it work. (In fact while I was at K-State I found out the company I worked for was sold and I no longer had a job). Last year Cooper came down with very aggressive oral cancer after discussing with my vet the decision was made to make him cofortable as possible until his passing. Without people trying there would be no advancements in medicine. In fact I documented Strider's treatment from beginning to end on this pet forum in the hope it would help others understand. It was lost to time passing. I apologize if I hijacked the thread and the moderator can delete if they wish.

RE: Insurance Denying Claims

Insurance companies don't cover structural defects. Just like your car motor fails and needs replaced that would not be covered. All this should be in your insurance policy of what they cover and what they do not. If you have a extended warranty on the unit it should be covered.

RE: Animals in commercials

Superbowl wise my favorite commercial was Weather Tech thanking the university of Wisconsin veterinarian department for saving his dog from cancer. Another favorite is the Pedigree commercial where a little girl is undergoing treatment in a hospital and for a change a therapy dog comes in and giant smile comes to her face.

RE: Housebreaking

I didn't want to highjack another thread - but here's something I discovered: Augie-the-Aussie peed on the carpet several times in our new-to-us condo, which of course made me angry because I figured at age 3-1/2 months, he was solidly housebroken. By age 5 months, I finally dared let him have the (supervised) run of the carpeted upstairs. The carpet was old (thank goodness) and last week, we had it replaced. As they tore up the old stuff - I was shocked by how many pee stains were visible on the backside - obviously, the previous owner had a dog who was NOT well-housebroken. I had not noticed any "odor" to the place nor seen any visible stains - but of course Augie's dog-nose knew that the entire upstairs was a bathroom. In hindsight, his restraint was to be admired ;-) So I'm just tossing that out there, in case anyone else runs into a similar situation.Now that both young Collies are housebroken I will be going to look at new carpet myself. It wasn't just the young dogs. In the last weeks of Lassie's life she could not go down the stairs to go outside. I was at work and did not know this until later on.

RE: Meet our new camping dog!

Did not have any issue house training Sawyer, he had one accident. I had the luxury of being home with him. I took him out every two hours and told him what a good boy he was when he went. Sasha was a little more work even though I took her out every two hours she would start playing with Sawyer and not taking care of business. She would then come in and start to go on the rug which ment a loud hand clap to get her attention and take her back outside. By the forth day she had it down. Sawyer helped as well Sasha would follow him out the dog door whenever he went out The Hoover steam vac came in handy.
