I have been a member and enjoying this site for over 10 years and finally last month bought a fiver!

Some things take time and research....

I love researching 'stuff' previous to buying, especially big 'stuff'! AND, I'm a very patient sort of man? BUT, to research something for 10 years prior to purchase, that displays a level of patience I can't even begin to comprehend!

CONGRATULATIONS!

I have found this site to be much better than other large RV sites that allow many more hurtful, and personal attacks.

I say great job moderators and thanks you of making this site so good. I must say this even though I had my hand slapped once. I deserved it.

I do not like to attack, I do like to help people with accurate information as much as possible. To this end I do a lot of research. It helps me as I learn, and it helps folks who need help with the topic.

However there is a psuedo Latin phrase, as best I can recall and spell it: Illegitimum non carborundum.

(Tranlation: Do not let the illigimates grind you down, note translation slightly laundered for posting public)

I read folks telling how the little valve on the propane tank (The Liquid Fill Indicator Valve) has to be open to "let the air out" because "Air can't be compressed" and it has to be let out before the propane goes in.

1: Air can indeed be compressed, That is what an air compressor does.

2: THERE IS NO AIR IN THE PROPANE TANK once it's been properly filled and never will be ever again.

One can only take so much of this kind of "Air in the place where there is none" post and sooner or later...

Illigitmum carborundum. (They grind you down).

OF course it sometimes happens that other things outside the forum make you more "Grindable" as it were.

For example last easter Wife and I bought a nice used jeep, Easter sunday she was driving following me CG to CG, and had a one car FATAL accident.. That hit me kind of hard.

And speaking of "Broken hearts".. I just got out of the cardiac ward at a local hospital, Slight (Thankfully) case of Congestive heart failure with complications.

Thankfully it was a slight case and responding well to treatment.. But things like this make one more.. Grindable.

I just read this post completely. Yes, I agree, circumstances can influence our thoughts and actions, it is wise to be sensitive to that. I just read this post and I was sorry to hear about your great loss of your wife. I just prayed for your continued comfort and healing of your body also after your heart issue,glad you are responding well to treatment. Thank you.

Wa8xym...What doesn't kill you, will make you stronger. Or at least that's what I've been told. I am very sorry to hear of your loss and hope you get better and get out on the road again. God works in mysterious ways and I've learned not to question it. So run with it and see where you end up.

Wax8xym,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
We understand the heart problems as DW had open heart surgery
last Dec. and several complications we are still working on.

Better times are ahead.

Thanks, I'm noticing some positive changes.

For example. Last week I spent a few days in Taylor Mi at the Moose Lodge (I'm a member) due to routine doctor's appointments in the area.

Well. Tuesday Morn they serve breakfast in the lodge for a reasonable fee so I hiked over to the lodge.. Last year that would have been a long walk. I would either ride my bicycle over or take a walking stick.. This year I did neither.

After breakfast I came out of the lodge, Turned the wrong way (For getting back to RV) and walked out to the sidewalk, turned again and walked 2 doors down to Gordon Food Service Marketplace.. Picked up a shopping cart in the lot and walked every isle in the store.. Checked out and carried 2 or 3 bags back to the RV.. All without any "Aids" like the bicycle or walking stick.

An amazinglly long walk for me.

And no problems at all.

So I am now feeling better than I have in years.

Still. I have three more scheduled doctor's visits. All routine follow up save one where we are doing some additional testing, but even that is "Follow up" testing, and what is more important PAINLESS testing.
