RE: ge produxts be aware

We recently bought a new GE clothes washer. My DW, of course, had to check it thoroughly as it went through the cycles. First, it put in just enough water to cover the clothes, which disappointed her. Secondly, when it spin dries, the machine walks around the floor. If I didn't keep pushing it back into place, it would eventually leave the laundry room. Called GE customer service about the low water fill. Was told it only uses that much water because of Govt. regulations. (What would they know about washing clothes?..:) ) They also suggested she add a bucket or two of water before the wash cycle started. This machine has a large capacity tub, the top two thirds of which have never gotten wet. SHAMEFUL!! Another legendary American company, KODAK, has lost their once good reputation thanks to Funai Corp, who bought KODAK. Took 2 1/2 months to get a replacement printer that went bad during the warranty period. ^Their customer service is TERRIBLE! x10 Do NOT ever buy those new ones where the control panel is all digital and there is NO agitator. They are a piece of garbage with a guarantee you will be replacing the circuit boards. Just google it tens of thousands of very unsatisfied customers. Don't know how they keep selling them. I did.:( It only fills the machine with 1/4 of the water. At the end of the cycle your clothes are all balled up like a ball of pizza dough on the bottom. And during the washing process it starts and starts with sprays of water about 20+ times. The constant start ups eat your electricity. AND you clothes stink, the washer stinks and if you read the manual it tells you it WILL. :R Recommending you disinfect the washer often.

RE: Class C - keeping pets (dogs/cats) out of driver's area.

Getting ready to go on a long trip with two cats. Any ideas how to keep them out of the cab area while driving? Thanks!! I travel with 4 dogs. They are in crates up in the cab over. The crates are secured to the wood under the cushions. I have a Turbo Maxxair 4 speed reversible thermostat fan installed in the vent opening above the cab over. Which keeps them cool on hot days. This would also work for the cats. find a crate big enough to put a litter box in the back of crate and a small bed upfront and an attached water bowl. that is how my cat traveled in the RV. He was very happy with the situation. IMHO no animals should be loose while traveling. For your safety AND theirs. If you do get in an accident loose pets become projectiles and if rescue is involved the minute fire and EMT open your RV door, out goes your pets into traffic often fatal.

RE: Rear bumper spare tire carrier

My 2001 Sunnybrook fiver came with a bumper mounted spare carrier. It broke off at the vertical support along the road after a few years. The replacement has now broken. I have looked at the ones online and they are rated at about 65 pounds and my spare weighs over 90. I don't have a receiver hitch. Does anyone know of a sturdy bumper mount carrier? https://www.etrailer.com/static/images/pics/U/F/UF15-954730_44_75.jpg square bumper mounts >etrailer.com http://i46.tinypic.com/24ficz7.jpghttp://i47.tinypic.com/vdt3o.jpg I use the bike rack part of this to hang my lawn chairs and/or expens when going to dog shows. Can be found at any RV store/RV dealership. This one has been on my MH for 10 years with me many times overloading the bike rack part with so many different items and can't remember all what I hooked on it!... and it still is hanging on. :C

RE: Good Sam Club (another rip-off)

same o, same o. Same problems repeated over and over for MANY MANY years. :R I just don't understand: 1. Why they continue to try and trick their customers, and 2. Why they haven't been fined, sued for their continued fraudulent billing and bait and switch advertising. http://i49.tinypic.com/24o3qs0.gif

RE: Phone activated functions on an RV???

How many of you would use a phone app to operate your RV? So phones are secure enough for online banking but not secure enough to control an RV? Nope! I would never do my banking via a cell phone.

Phone activated functions on an RV???

omg, Thought I'd seen it all but guess not. There is another thread where an RV'er is locked out of opening his slides and awning on his RV. WHY? Because he is using his cell phone to open them and it is malfunctioning. :S First of all I did not know that there is an app you can buy where you use a cell phone to operate almost all of the functions on an RV. https://www.asaelectronics.com/downloads/dl/file/id/832/jrvcs105_in-command_owners_manual.pdf Have we as RVers gotten that lazy that we need to use a cell phone to operate our RV's when our RV 'comes with already installed' buttons/switches to operate everything? Not to mention the lack of security of using a device like a cell phone having access to all of your RV inside an out. I certainly would NOT want to own an RV that is hackable, 'phone activated'. What happens when you don't have good cell phone coverage where you are parked? Do you sit there refusing to go inside the RV and flip the switch to activate your slides? How many of you would use a phone app to operate your RV?

RE: Side with most windows?

If you really want to know how it feels to live in a cave while RV'ing? Step into any high end 6 figure Class A!! I traveled in my friends to an event when my RV was in the shop, and I could not wait to get out of it. It's like a long dark tube. Minimal windows and they are narrow and near the top of the coach. Nope, all the marble, granite, Italian leather and fancy cabinets can't make up for being able to see out AND have the sunshine come in! I need windows and lots of them. :B

No. It's a parking lot not a CG.

RE: Water in my storage bays

My water was coming down the side of the coach from the back end where the gutter ended on the roof. I put a small bead of clear silicone on the top of the storage bay. Done and done, no more water intrusion. Going a several years now.

RE: Why Are There Inside Rear View Mirrors In Class C's

I have a rear window on my coach. Therefore needs a rear view mirror! Those van chassis' come off an assembly line. 'Then' the coach builders get them. Some RV models have back windows some do not. I know I would have been bummed out if my RV had no rear view mirror! Since I usually have the shades down in the back I don't use it BUT I do turn it to the side and it gives me an additional view of the road on that side. I know not the cars because so high but it does show the trucks.

RE: We've been Rescued!

Suggest you contact the French Bulldog Club of America X2 You really should contact this group to get a referral in your area, Frenchie's do have some specific problems and they have wonderful mentors ready and eager to help you get to know the French Bull Dog Breed. And save you the frustration of misguided advice. :C Congrats on your new pup! Pictures, we need pictures of the new member of your family! :B

RE: Side with most windows?

Wife and I are shopping for first RV. We are looking at fiver toyhaulers, but we would like to hear from all rv owners... All of my writing will be referring to the curb side of the rv as the entry side, and also the side where the "camp" is traditionally. While looking at various RV's, we like how open some feel more than others, and that has a lot to do with how many windows a unit has, and the window's placement. The sofa/dinette slide outs obviously have the largest and most windows, while the kitchen slides have nearly no windows. A few models have a small window over the stove, under the microwave. (Toyhauler models) The models with the most windows are more appealing to us, no matter which side of the RV they are on (sofa/dinette on curb side and kitchen street side or vice versa). With that being said, do you prefer an RV with the most windows on the curb/"camp" side or the street side? Do you prefer/like being able to view the campsite from the inside of your rv, or does it even matter or that big of a deal? Any input is appreciated. We have a list of about 30 toyhaulers that we are narrowing down as we look, and this topic came up this afternoon while looking through a few units. I hope this makes sense. For me it's 'as many windows as possible on all sides'. I purchased all my RV's based on how many windows it had. IMHO Nothing worse than sitting in a box in a CG unable to see out. :C My biggest 'no no' is a gen that exhausts under the awning side or I even have seen a hot water heater that exhausted there also. Would like to meet the guy that designed that!!!

RE: A better exterior range vent?

On our last Tt, I used Krylon Fusion spray paint to touch up stuff like that. I'm truly amazed at how well it stood up and it looked like it came that way. I even painted the plastic trim around the windows in the doors and put it on thick to fill cracks (normally a bad idea) and they looked good as new until I sold it. X10! OP: Get a can of Krylon Fusion and spray that new vent as soon as possible. It will 'never' yellow! I did my stove vent, door trim, screen door bottom and fridge vent, and coach side mirrors with that paint. Looks like brand new and never yellows.

RE: Land to call your own?

How big of a garden is desired? We were in a seasonal site last year and picked up some pots and grew tomatoes and a few other things. X2 Things grow crazy in the south. You can almost see them grow! This was a 4 inch plant from Walmart that I transplanted into a pot. It grew into mammoth cayenne peppers in record time. http://i62.tinypic.com/wujzpc.jpg

RE: Tv in motorhome

I think we need more info. The CG has NO control over OTA signals.... Doug x2 OTA -Over the air TV signals. Your batwing antenna on your MH is what brings in the free TV channels NOT the CG. CG's do not supply you with over the air channels. They have nothing to do with it. Perhaps they are referring to if you hook up to their cable and It not compatible with old TV's still using the old converter box's. But you don't need to hook up to their cable to get the OTA free TV channels. I always got 10 to 20 channels with OTA and the MH batwing. Many more channels if parked close to a major city. If you are buying a new flat screen TV, all you have to do is plug it in in your MH and flip the booster switch and there you go FREE TV channels ANYWHERE you park your coach! :C

RE: Land to call your own?

If you are really a full timer then you really don't need dirt! What would you garden if your plans are to leave in a few weeks or even a few months? So, it doesn't sound like you plan to full time. What are your plans exactly? Do you mean you only plan to live in the RV full time but rarely travel? :? Full time does not mean you have to be on the road 365 days a year. :R And actually most do not. Many full timers follow the sun and spend months, an entire summer season in one place. And then move on when winter comes. Or in the case of Florida....get out of dodge BEFORE their summer starts. :W I follow the sun and when I was in Florida during the real estate market crash I went crazy looking at beautiful houses in foreclosure that were priced less than a pick up truck! I ended up finding a house on 1.5 acres NO hoa, unincorporated, no neighbors, where I could park my MH with no problem. Lov'n it. The MH parked out back, house surrounded by beautiful trees. No more being crammed in a CG just to enjoy the winter in Florida. The town here offers so much. Incredible crystal blue springs, rivers, the gulf etc. I could go everyday and see and enjoy something different. Something I never could find when staying at a CG> So to the OP, YUP, I found me some dirt with a house on it to put my levelers down in. And I can pick them right back up and head up North to enjoy the beautiful spring time any time I feel like it. :C

RE: Day night shades

Once I got rid of the "strings" in favor of 65 pound test braided fishing line, all the fraying and breaking stopped. Good tip! Will use that if I need to replace them. :C
