RE: RV Park Review deferred

"Personal Information" does not necessarily have to be about people in the park, but information that can be used to trace back who YOU are. For example, if you said you reserved site XXX and yadda, yadda, yadda, since you've giving the month/year of your stay, the park can track back who you are using those specifics. They don't want their site used for fingerpointing at anybody, just for reviews of the park. Like said previously, copy and paste the problem review for accurate replies.

RE: We're Going To Canada!

Congrats and welcome to Canada! It's unfortunate, but the visa requirement for Mexican citizens is necessary.

RE: Many of us have run into this when volunteering

This is totally a management issue. We're overlegislated as it is and you're asking for even more? Sorry, but it's getting ridiculous.

RE: Parts and vehicles on latest GM recall

I've received 2 emails from NHTSA on my 2010 HHR. Contacted my dealer and they're waiting for confirmation on whether my VIN is included in the recall. The NHTSA emails are year/make/model specific whereas whether your vehicle is a part of the recall or not is VIN specific. For my HHR, one was on the ignition and the other was for the power steering.

RE: Brake Buddy Brake away switch

Somehow lost the pin on mine a couple of summer's ago. Haven't bothered replacing it yet, so no I don't use mine.

RE: RV friendly diesel before the Keys

I always gas up at the Shell at the corner of the 1 and Palm Drive. I know there is diesel there, just not sure where the pump is located. If it's at the north side of the lot, it's an easy in off the 1 and out on Palm Drive back toward the 1. There is a Hess a little further down the road, but it's on the opposite side of the road (the side coming out of the Keys) and could be a PITA to get out of because there is no light and 3 lanes of traffic to get through to get back on the road heading toward the Keys. I little further down the road there is a huge RaceTrac on the right side of the road, but I've never filled there, so I can't comment on it.

RE: expired memberships ????

I really doubt that any campground will give you the 50% PPA discount without checking the card. I have, however, received the GS 10% discount simply by asking "Are there any discounts available?" without ever presenting the card, which is why I never bothered renewing.

RE: Bad Business Practice at Holiday World in League City Tx.

Sorry, but much like the saying "The early bird gets the worm", in this case "The first one to get their paperwork in gets to buy". The sales manager doesn't know the unit is sold until he gets the paperwork. Turns out there were 2 salesmen working on selling the same unit at the same time, and yours was a little slow in getting it done and, obviously, took more than 10 minutes to complete it. In the meantime, the other guy got his done and submitted it. It happens sometimes, doubt you're the first one, nor will you be the last, either at this dealer or elsewhere. Sorry, but I don't see this as a bad practise whatsoever. Their job is to make the sale, doesn't matter whether it's to you or someone else.

RE: RV Park Reviews

Just noticed that RV Park Reviews has now added markers to their maps so that you can see the physical location of rv parks. I think this is a great feature and although this has been available on the Trailer Life RV Parks book, it is great to have an interactive version. I could be wrong, but have they not always been there? Everytime I clicked "View on Map", the marker has always been there. I've been using it for a couple of years. I don't see any markers on any other map they have, like the state map once you click or select a state.

RE: Interstate Bathroom....er....etiquette

Personally, if we're talking children, I would. Adults can deal with it. An adult can walk into the weeds/woods and squat or zip it out, I can see where a child could be too freaked out about that.

RE: Interstate Bathroom....er....etiquette

I"ve watched those shows with hidden cameras where people purposefully slip on something just to sue the owner of the store. I could see that happening since many, especially dealerships, think that an RV owner has money to burn.Anyone who sues me for a slip n' fall in my RV is suddenly going to find themselves prosecuted for breaking in without my consent. Let them prove that I let them in voluntarily. If you're in a traffic jam, you don't think there are going to be witnesses?

RE: GM Recalls Expanded

My ignition switch was replaced 18 months ago with a recall on my HHR. It was a situation where the key could not be removed from the switch and in some instances you could not turn OFF the ignition. Now it appears that the switches will just suddenly go dead. Maybe somewhere in the middle is the answer to their switch problems. :B What year is your HHR? I didn't know of another recall. We bought an early 2006 HHR to tow and bought one of the last 2011s. Our 06 had about 150,000 miles showing before selling it to friends with a motorhome. Sorry it took so long to reply. I have a 2009 HHR. I had to find the letter that I got from GM. The letter was addressed to me and was from Jim Moloney, General Director, Customer & Relationship Services. It was dated July 2012 and it said that this letter is intended to make me aware that some 2009 model year HHR vehicles may develop a binding condition between the ignition lock cylinder and the housing. If this occurs, it may be difficult to turn the ignition key and/or remove it from the ignition. If the vehicle is running, you may not be able to turn it off. It further tells me NOT to take the vehicle to the dealer UNLESS I believe my vehicle has the problem. Mine did so I took it in and they installed part number 20869121 Cylinder kit under what they listed as a SPECIAL POLICY. There was no charge. It did say that I had until June 30, 2013 to get it done under this "recall". I don't believe that this was part of a National recall but rather a somewhat isolated situation where they could identify certain affected vehicles. I would guess that if anyone was registered with GM and they had a vehicle that was indicated they would have gotten the same letter that I got. I never got the letter for mine (2010), but they did replace it under warranty when it got stick ON one night last summer. It was a Sunday night, had to drive it to their lot, leave it there overnight, disconnect the battery and remove the ignition fuse to get the engine to turn off.

RE: Canadian Liquor Prices

They use high prices here to deter alcoholism and youth drinking. Of course, since the taxes go into the govt coffers, that doesn't hurt that decision either. They also have minimum pricing, not sure if that's just here in Ontario or Canada-wide.

RE: Canadian Border

On the contrary, my shortest stop at the border re-entering Canada. Customs: "How long were you over?" Me: "51 hours" Customs: "How much did you spend?" Me: "$44.00" Customs: "Have a good day." :B {one wonders if the computer comment re. my vehicle license gave a time of crossing, which equaled my answer} No. Right now there is no agreement in place for the US and Canada to share this information, but it is on the way.

RE: Navigation software for a laptop...

Streets and Trips is an awesome tool. There are overlays available for all Wal-Mart locations as well as Crocker Barrel locations to help with quick overnight stays.

RE: Canadian Border

To do that kind of inspection ,they would have had to have some kind of specialist come in. It's hard to believe that a border officer would have the training to know how to properly inspect a towing system. Would they call in the rv.net weight police? Almost assuredly!
