My Truck and Internet Have Joined Me at the 5’er


Sunday, while my son Ted was here to move the heavy Stuff to storage he also got the TV working and found a truck at Folsom Lake Dodge (that’s where he got his PU).  We took it out for a test drive, and he talked with one of his friends in Dodge Truck Club to see if it would be a good tow vehicle for me.  He saw no problems, so I bought it.  I now have a 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 diesel PU to tow my 2007 Big Horn Fifth Wheel.  Yea!


That’s Carlos, me, Chris and Brian, (the sales team).  Great guys and fun to work with. (Ted took the picture)  Part of the deal was to include a  big bucket with a bunch of product to detail the truck to protect the finish and will need to schedule that.   I still need to get a hitch, the rails and wiring are already there.  Now I’ll have to do some research as to which one to get.

Today, Robert with ATT hooked up my phone service and internet.  He called while I was at work to let me know that he was on his way.  When I got home and tried the phone, NO DIAL TONE.  I called the number back and Robert said that he would come back.  He wasn’t able to connect any wire to the 5’er.  When he came back I unlocked basement for access  and one of my neighbors supplied a long enough wire for the connection.  Thank you, John.  I now have DIAL TONE and INTERNET.  Yea!   A BIG Thank You to Robert for coming back to finish the job and also giving me a bit of First Aid.  

Yes, I christened the 5’er with blood, my own,  Of course, I knew that I would do it sooner or later, banging my head on the corner of the bedroom slide was not a pleasant experience.  There was a lot of blood out of a tiny cut.  I guess that I had better split one of the swim noodles and put it on the edge. 

This is a short post because I need to get to bed, one more work day to go.  Hopefully this weekend I can finish over at the Mobile.


Thanks for visiting

  1. I'm so glad you found a truck, and now you are ready to roll!

  2. Now you're just about ready to move on down the road!

  3. Nice truck. And please be careful with those slide out corners. I split my head open last fall and they had to glue me back together again.
