RE: ERS renewal

They have been doing this for years and it looks like they are not going to stop. They send you junk mail telling you your membership is expired. When it is NOT. In hopes that you run to pay it although you still have months left on your current membership. I.E. they got your money for something you should not have had to pay for. Then try getting it back. Fraud.

RE: Late asking g this question but what happened to Woodalls?

The stupidest thing they have done. The Woodall's portal was the only one that worked ALL the time. Affinity who originally ran this forum defaulted on their notes due to bondholders, so they just changed the name to Good Sam.:R "" CW ~GS ~ Affinity ~ AGI all ONE in the SAME. "The FDIC estimates Affinity's failure will cost its deposit insurance fund $254 million." "On August 15, 2009, AGI failed to make a $6.2 million interest payment to bondholders, .......... In May 2011, AGI announced that it was changing the company's name to Good Sam Enterprises."" That's why you see all the changes.

RE: Where to sell rv stuff

Put it on the Escapees RV Club "classified forum section". They are a full time RV club, one of the oldest and most respected RV clubs. You will hit a market there filled with thousands of experienced RV owners. It will sell fast. AND it is a pleasure dealing with only real RV'ers. I sold all my RV stuff on that forum and bagged quite a few good deals on rv gear. You don't have to join the actual Escapees Club to use their forum classified. Just join the forum for free. Here's the directions to get to rv market place forum without having to join the club:....................... 1. Go here: http://www.rvnetwork.com/ 2. Upper right hand corner click: create an account 3. After you joined go to Forums. 4. Scroll all the way down the page near the bottom to: RV MARKET PLACE 5.Post your ad under the forum topics: RVs, Tows, and Toads for Sale, equipment, etc This is the ONLY place I will sell my RV's and/or RV gear on. Good Luck!

RE: seat cushions

First of all don't ever buy stuff labeled 'for RV's'. It will cost 10 times more than if you buy from a regular store. I've had very good luck with cushions, pillows, bed spreads sheets etc. for the RV by simply looking for a local seamstress in your town. Some advertise on Craigs list or a local facebook group. Do a search on facebook for one near you. Cushions are so simple to make and a local seamstress can make them for you for a WHOLE lot less than a stupid RV store. And make them in the material 'you' want. You can also check with the dry cleaners near you they might be able to connect you with local seamstress.

RE: I 40 near Memphis tn overnight parking for motorhome

we are from Memphis, and make frequent weekend trips to Tom Sawyer RV Park. We have never had an issue there. It is away from the truck traffic, quiet,and the river is wonderful. it is about 2 1/2 miles from the interstate, but well marked. I would suggest, calling ahead, they stay full. It is a Good Sam Park X10! I love that CG and always stay at when running north to south. Do NOT stay anywhere in the Memphis or West Memphis area if you are not from that area, 'many' parts are not safe.

RE: Careful how you load your TT

My first TT was really small and on a single axle. I took a trip from Wisconsin to Boston. Trip out was just fine. Trip back that trailer was swaying so much I could almost look out my side window and touch it!!! :B All because I had put a very heavy item inside the TT "Behind" the axle. Moved the item to in front of the axle and voila problem solved. Made me a big believer on how you load a single axle TT.

RE: Smashed bugs are bugging me!

First get a good coat of wax on it. And 'keep' waxing it. I've tried everything and this is the ONLY thing that really works on stubborn dried on bug juice! And once you experience Love Bugs in Florida you 'know' what stubborn smashed bugs are all about and how to get them off. :B And the Dobie sponge will not scratch the finish. https://pics.drugstore.com/prodimg/88950/450.jpg height=160

RE: Class A pulling a TT ???

I see Diesel Class A MH's pulling large cargo trailers all the time. Same as a TT actually probably heavier. I used to pull a 2 place slant load horse trailer with my MH. Horses included! http://i41.tinypic.com/316au8h.gif

RE: Has anyone used or made or purchased a Genturi exhaust?

Do any of you who use a Genturi see much advantage in using it when NOT in crowded camping conditions? In other words, how about boondock camping with your RV being the only one around and you want to run your air conditioner for several hours in the middle of the day ... even if your built-in generator is well installed in that it's not under a slide, and has relatively low noise and vibration levels inside the coach? I've thought about buying one but never followed through because we very rarely camp in close quarters with other RVs. Absolutely! I use mine when ever the gen is on. Gen on, genturi on. If you look at the gen exhaust on RV's it's almost even with the edge of the wall of the RV. That exhaust runs right up the side of the wall. Could never understand why the manuf do that. Remember you might have you windows closed but there are weep holes and the exhaust goes up the wall and seeps right in thru there and if the wind blows it goes right under your RV and we all know how well sealed (not) the underbelly of RV's are. The exhaust 'does' come in the coach. The genturi gets rid of that faint smell of exhaust that is always present in your coach when you run the gen. I used to get headaches all the time, wrote it off to doing too much at the sporting events I go to. I also used to nap on the couch same side as the gen, duh. Well.....once I started using the Genturi the headaches completely stopped. It was from the gen exhaust.:R

RE: Registration......Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!

X2 I wanted to relocate to Georgia. Even had an accepted offer on a house THEN I was to find out what registering my MH, SUV, and toad would cost every year based on their combined value!! :E Where I am from all my vehicles registrations are around $25.00. Including the MH. Wish I would have known Georgia was working on changing that registration policy. The change only effects new purchases. If you were to move to Georgia now, you'd still pay the excise tax on your vehicles. However, any vehicle you buy new in Georgia would be charged the tax at the time of purchase, then you'd only pay the yearly $20 tag fee for each vehicle. When you first move to Georgia, you will be charged a title transfer fee, I think that is like $12. Then on your next birthday, you will be charged the excise tax when you renew the registration. If your vehicles are older, then the excise tax is not too bad. It's not based on the Blue Book value of your vehicle. On all my vehicles, the value the excise tax is based on is lower than the Blue Book value of my vehicles. We have a 1999 Ford Taurus. The excise tax last year was $14. Also, in Georgia, every county has a different Millage rate. In my county, Glynn County, there is a different Millage rate depending on district.-Michael Thank you. That makes me feel better on my decision not to live there based on the insane registration fees I would have had to pay! :C Albiet I still think Georgia is THE nicest of the southern states.

RE: Snow birds and their RV size

There is 'NO' set size. It is what ever you feel comfortable with. I Snow Birded and then on to Full Time and I have seen ALL DIFFERENT size RV's that people are quite happy to be RV'ing in. I had a lady pull in next to me at one CG with a Casita. She was full timing for over 4 years in it. And was one VERY HAPPY camper! Buy what "you" like not what others tell you is the only way. :W

RE: Palomino thouroughbred or Heartland Mallard-anyone to opine?

http://i63.tinypic.com/6y1gy1.pngPalomino Thoroughbred! My second TT was a Palomino Thoroughbred. IMHO it was the dang best well built trailer. The Mallard isn't even close in quality irregardless of what year it is. I'm just sorry I sold mine. I've been looking around for another one.

RE: Linoleum sheet vs planks vs floating wood plank flooring?

Floating wood plank will buckle. Linoleum if installed correctly and stapled down securely around the edges with quarter round or similar will endure the temp changes.

RE: Has anyone used or made or purchased a Genturi exhaust?

I waffled and waffled about putting the hooks into the side of my MH. But after using it without the hooks and jury rigging stuff to hold it up firmly in place, I took the plunge and drilled 2 very small holes to accommodate the hooks. No leaks, no rust, no problem, even several years later. Just sorry I waited so long to do it! :C

RE: My CW is now 1/2 a Pet food store???

Well they are loosing RV customers left and right. Due to prices and severe lack of customer service. I see them adding pet products as a way to recoop their losses.

RE: Does this count as a toy hauler?

The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys. So yes, it's a toy hauler. :) "He who dies with the most toys wins." :B

RE: outdoor patio mat

I also bought the same material for a sun screen off the end of my awning. Keeps the heat out from the sun yet lets the light and breeze come thru and looks real nice. And again folds up flat for storage. I use two hand held clamps and attach to each side of rail under the valance of the awning. For quick removal in case of a storm. Pretty much the same material they use and label as "RV" awning sun shades that they charge sometimes over $200 for!! Cost at Lowes....$20 or $30 bucks. :C

RE: Has anyone used or made or purchased a Genturi exhaust?

I have had a Genturi for years now. won't leave home RV'ing with out it. DIY projects of an exhaust pipe using a gutter etc. is IMHO very dangerous. Genturi pipes have patented stacks that are NOT hot to the touch. Using gutters, etc ARE hot and dangerous. If someone walking past your MH touches it they will get burned and it can burn the side of you MH. Just saying. Also the Genturi has a patented attachment exhaust pipe that does NOT restrict the flow to the gen which is very important for the longevity of your gen. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/EXHAUSTenlarge-1.jpg Air intake opening http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/1c51e9d0.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/d67385c5.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/e5bc416c.jpg http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/rvstuffusa_2060_1769889 http://i59.tinypic.com/w7n9ye.jpg
