RE: Windshield Wiper Replacement

I buy Motorcraft wipers from my local Ford dealer. They're the best quality wipers that I've found. X10 Replacement wipers from a store certainly are NOT what they used to be like. I bought 3 different priced replacements from Walmart and a parts store and they ALL squeeked, didn't cover enough of the windshile, didn't sit right in the off position, etc etc. Ditto on OEM from Ford.

RE: School me on heated tanks and enclosed underbelly stuff

You have to PHYSICALLY get under or into and LOOK at what the manufacturer is calling "heated" anything before you buy! Don't even bother asking the salesman either. I found out my "heated" tanks turned out to be nothing more than splitting my bedroom heat duct and sending half of the heat intended for the bedroom to the sewage bay to 'heat' the tanks. Yup my sewage tanks and valves never freeze but I sure do get cold in winter time in the bedroom with half the heat being diverted to the sewage bay. :R

RE: Why is it...?

...that the CEO and defacto head of this website can talk politics but us common folk cannot. I think that he opened the door and we should be able to discuss his position. No he didn't. He did not post it here on the forum. Forum rules, why does everyone always have to question them? It's a Free forum you signed up for and agreed to follow the rules. :R

RE: Anyone install a jackknife sofa?

Just wondering if anyone has installed a jackknife sofa in the TC. It seems it's a viable option to keep some storage under the seating area. And, there are lots of models/brands out there. If you did and wrote up or did video of your install, I'd like to see it. If it's not obvious, this would be to replace the dinette. I called RV Mobile repair to 'fix' my jack knife couch because the back wasn't straight. To my surprise, he came out and took my WHOLE couch out and rebuilt the frame with real wood! I would call a local CG near you and ask who they use for RV Mobile Repair. These guys are GREAT, have seen it all and can repair it all and reasonably priced. My mobile repair guy had that couch dismantled and out the door and a whole new frame built and back in and installed in less than an hour!! And it feels more comfortable sitting on it and sleeping on it than it ever did from the factory.:B

RE: Question about portable AC units and amperage

Before I took it back I was going to go thru all the hoopla of trying to insulate the hose. And did a whole bunch of searching on the internet, thought I'd share what I found with you. For those that already have a portable in your RV or house: Here is good link to a product to buy to insulate the hose that worked and didn't look tacky! Hope it helps.:C http://i.imgur.com/WUF0j1Zl.jpg height=300 http://i.imgur.com/jUYTKpml.jpg height=300 http://i.imgur.com/eZqDdDAl.jpg height=300__http://i.imgur.com/18fAMjZl.png height=300 https://planetaides.com/

RE: Question about portable AC units and amperage

I just purchased a high end portable ac unit for my winter home in Florida. I took it back the next day. That exhaust hose gets HOT and emits a ton of heat into the room. And the intake on the one I bought was in the back right next to the hose. So all it was doing was sucking in the heat from the hose.:R After plugging it in, the humidity in the room doubled and the ac unit spent the next 10 hours trying to cool the heat from the exhaust hose not the room. Went on line and there were tons of complaints about the heat from the hose, and there were tests showing the heat coming off the hose to be 100 degrees plus. Then their were a hundred different websites where people were making and/or selling ridiculous tacky looking insulation fixes for the hose. AND you have to move it to drain the water off every so many hours depending on how high the humidity is where you live. If you forget to drain it it shuts off. Mine had no drain hose just an opening so you had to take it to the front door and hope for the best draining. Just saying this is what I experienced just this week with a portable. I'd REALLY look into all what a portable does and does not do before you leap into buying one. I didn't and just bought one, what a mistake. Especially the draining of the water. The reservoir size was very very small. If you left your RV for any length of time if the water tank filled up the ac will shut down. You'd be coming back to one hot RV. And I am guessing that in a small RV that heat from the hose is going to just add a considerable amount of additional heat to the RV.

RE: Are we really Getting Discounts

I DID NOT STATE that every Good Sam park has this problem. I STATED THAT THE ONES WE HAVE USED have been an issue, We don't stay at Good Sam parks very often because they are either not near our travels. the discounts are insufficient compared to others in the area or the reviews are poor. So please don't use my words out of context to make a point. Others have responded that they have had the same issue. So it isn't only me. It may not be a practice for all Good Sam parks, but it is being done by some. I do notice that the only poster that takes issue is a park owner or manager. If it bothers you, by all means, spread the word that this practice is getting notice. We will, when we have time, look back in our records to find the parks mentioned, WHEN WE HAVE TIME, since we're traveling and enjoying life. In the future, if this come up again, we will most definitely post the name of the park here for all to see. Perhaps others that have responded with the same issue can also post the names of the parks. ChuckGo back to your original post. You ABSOLUTELY stated that it happens "EVERY TIME". I don't think anyone doubts it has happened to you at some point in time. But that is a lot different than every time. As for the value of a Good Sam membership. I know for a fact, not every park offers a 10% discount to everyone. At my parks the Good Sam discounted rate is better than any other single night rate (yes the weekly rate is better). All of our other discounts (active military, seniors) are 5%. At our average undiscounted rate of $65.00 that gets you $3.25 a night better discount than anyone else. If you are not active military or a senior, it gets you $6.50 a night. Now that isn't exactly the stuff of milionaires, but it adds up. Stay at a lot of parks similar to mine and Good Sam more than pays for itself. First of all NO one has to post the names of the CG's to prove anything to westernrvparkowner. He has demanded that we post the names of the CG's. Which btw I full time, I most certainly do not keep a log of CG's I stay at to prove anything to anyone. :R westernrvparkowner: Please post the name of the Good Sam campground you own and where it is. Something you have been asked 'numerous' times over many years to prove you own one and have never done.:W

RE: LifeTime Member Has Been Told Not To Shop With Camping World

This just needs to be copied and pasted to every RV forum and every RV related media forum you can. No matter who you support or don't support Lemonis saying this is just so wrong on so many levels. It just confirms what a poor business man he really is. :R Marcus Lemonis: "If you’re OK with what Trump said, don’t shop at my business" Actually by saying this he buys right into being part of discrimination.

RE: Are we really Getting Discounts

Westernrvparkowner. We are not talking about these circumstances where the discounts are listed. We are talking about circumstances where one price is published on the website. When we arrive and check in, we are told that price on the website IS with the Good Sam discount. And NO, in these situations we are never ask for our Good Sam card or member number. Because you have not had it happen, doesn't mean it isn't happening. Chuck X2 For those naysayers that say it couldn't possibly happen because 'they' haven't experience it is just ludicrous. I full time so therefore we stay at 'many' more CG's across the USA than the weekend/vacationer RV'er. So just by pure numbers/miles traveled we are more likely to come across more that do this than others. AND I have also pulled into CG's sporting a huge GOOD SAM sign. And have the owner say 'they don't belong to GS anymore so no discount'. When I was a newbie I did seek out GS CG's to utilize my discount card. Now I look for KOA where I know what I am pulling into 100% of the time and my card is ALWAYS honored. :W...The OP was able to point out ONE park, and even that example isn't a 100% clear cut example of what they claim happens because the park clearly states the posted rate is the Good Sam rate. ..... That statement in itself points out the second part of the OP's post. If the posted rate IS the Good Sam rate, then therefore EVERYONE on the road RV'ing gets the GS rate and there is no need to pay for a membership to GS club now is there?. :W I don't personally know the OP but every time this subject comes up there is always a few forum members that have experienced this same practice by some GS CG's. He's not the lone ranger. :C

RE: Replacing the Male End of the RV Power Cord

Get the plug replacement with the handle! Makes connecting and unconnecting a breeze. Don't know why the darn manufactures don't make this type of plug standard equipment. The reason plugs melt is loose connections which results in arching that blackens the blades on the plug. If your blades on the plug are not shiny copper your plugs will start to melt. I clean the plug blades with a simple emery board people use to file their nails. Haven't had a plug start melting in years since I started routinely sanding the blades to keep them clean. http://2ytiuw3f55rgrhlxk2tjx7sm.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/55255.png height=490 Comes in both 30amp and 50amp And yes this size plug replacement will fit in the box where the power cord is stored.

RE: Fridge door problem

Has any one had a Fridge door bottom hinge break, its a NORCOLD Model # N811. Do you think I can buy just the door? Had same thing happen. At the time the only answer was buying a door. Now there are hinges and screws for sale separately. My short fix while I was on the road was heavy duty lock tite. It kept it together albeit I had to reapply the stuff a couple of times. Then the top hinge started loosening up also. Prevention is to NOT put anything in the door panel of the fridge the hinges are not made to accommodate any weight in the door. Thank you Norcold a fridge with door panels for food and you can't use it or chance the door opening and falling off . :R https://www.amazon.com/Norcold-634166-Door-Hinge-Retrofit/dp/B008KWP6MC https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008KWM346/ref=psdc_13397451_t1_B008KWP6MC https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008KWM7VA/ref=psdc_13397451_t2_B008KWM346

RE: Are we really Getting Discounts

We have traveled from Florida to Maine and on to Washington State so far. When we go to a campground website to check the fees, we might see a nightly rate of let's say, $40.00. More research shows the campground to be a Good Sam campground. So as members, we ask for the Good Sam discount. EVERY TIME we are told that the nightly fee on the website IS with the Good Sam Discount. Now I was born at night. But not last night. I find it hard to believe and justify that these campgrounds only post the Good Sam discount as there campground fee and if that is the case, Anyone can get it, even if you aren't a member. So what gives? Have others experienced this? Chuck X2 I was told the same thing at numerous CG's: "GS discount is already in the price stated". Ya, right. :R Did they still ask you for your card? After they told me the discount was in the listed rate I told them that I guess that meant they didn't need my card. Her response was that's ok I'll get your number from your name off the CG registration. If it wasn't so late in the day I would have pulled out and told them to pound sand. I think they are charging full price and then taking the discount for themselves as a profit instead of just a reimbursement for offering the discount.

RE: Anybody ever removed the bathroom sink?

Anybody ever removed the bathroom sink to make the shower bigger? The cheap plastic sink in my motorhome leaks and the water doesnt feed into the shower so It looks like I will need to get it replaced but all of the rv repair ships around are booked until mid September! Just bought this thing and would like to be able to take a shower when we take it on on the weekends so I am considering removing the bathroom sink all together and extending the shower, there is a sink in the kitchen anyways. How difficult would something like this be? Call an RV mobile repair. They will have a new sink for you the next day and installed the same day!! They are far more experienced at RV repairs anyway and can give better advice and quicker turnaround....like in one day right in your driveway or CG site. My bathroom sink dumps into the black tank also. The one thing I would be concerned about doing it your self is how you will have to seal up the pipe leading to the black tank to be safe regarding sewer gas from black tank. And IMHO extending a shower with pan, drain and plumbing and floor replacement would be too huge a remodel that I would ever decide on. And the fact that it will seriously affect the resale value on the RV. I'd think most people would want a bathroom sink. Fix or repair the sink! :B

RE: What defines a TT as a "True Four Season"?

It's all marketing terminology. I haven't seen anything on the market yet that I personally would call 4 seasons,.. X10 And if you believe all their marketing krap I hear there is a bridge for sale in Brooklyn. Just like my heated tanks that turned out to be a bedroom heat vent that was split and they sent half of my bedroom heat to my sewage bay. Yup the pipes didn't freeze but my bedroom was no longer 4 seasons worthy. :R

RE: residential refrigerator vs rv gas/electric refrigerator?

If given a choice of the residential refrigerator or an rv gas/electric refrigerator which would you choose? It seems like all the new 5th wheels come with the residential model. I suppose if you never drive more than 5-6 hours and never dry camp then the residential would be ok...but if you make long drives and dry camp or boon dock then the rv refrigerator would be the logical choice.... Wow, I didn't know that they started putting residential fridge's in the new RV's?? IMHO that would suck. If you RV a lot IMHO, there would be no way I would want a residential fridge in my RV. You will find more often than not real quick how much you need a fridge that can run off of propane. My friends replaced their fridge with a residential one simply because of the cost vs replacing the RV fridge. They REGRET doing it. AND I when we travel together I have to carry their food in 'my' RV until we get to a place with power. :R

RE: Propane tank explodes inside car!

It was a rental too! That brings up the often disputed discussion of, do you need to purchase the 'rental' insurance or not. I guess this will be the precedent for those that believe that: You do not need to purchase insurance for a rental car, it is covered on your personal car insurance. Would be interested in finding out if this guys insurance company paid for the blowed up rental car! :B
