RE: a purchase issue at GS Rally Phoenix

It's always amazing how a company will lose a customer over trivial dollar amounts. Most RVers have disposable cash and retailers should have a goal to get as much of that as they can. Losing a customer over $25 is foolish business. While CW may have not handled the situation perfectly. The OP needs to assume some responsibility for not checking their receipt originally. If the OP patronised CW before this incident, avoiding them after a mutual mistake seems silly and petty to me. Before you get on your high horse, I never indicated that I never had some responsibility...Read the thing again so you will get to the point where I said just return the thing for my money back...then understand maybe it is YOU that is being silly and petty for not reading the whole thing and assuming to much!! I assumed when you wrote, "I got the refund but GS has potentially lost a customer." Meant you were holding CW liable for the episode. Of course you could have intended that CW was potentially losing a customer for some other reason.... Silly me.....I assumed too much. I also assume that if I don't check my receipt I will leave myself at risk to errors and mistaken charges. Maybe that is assuming too much as well. Since you did get a refund what was the point of the post? To emphasis the importance of checking your receipt every time? Or to bash CW for your mutual mistake? Back to my high horse. Since you obiviosly don't want to read the whole post just for you I will repost the issue I had...Has nothing to do with the receipt or whose issue it is or isn't. I went to Campingworld and explained what had happened. To begin with you would have thought I committed a crime bringing it in to them, as it was corporate that had the sale and not them and they were not going to refund the money because it rung up on their site as the amount we paid. So I just said well keep it then (I had the receipt supposedly good for 90 days) and just refund my money. They didn't want to as it was a closeout and it was sold by corporate not them. I asked for a corporate phone number and the ?manager? said let them have the damn money back and stormed off. This was not a mutual mistake...this was very rude customer service...If you don't understand then you never will...

RE: a purchase issue at GS Rally Phoenix

That's why I always check my receipts at time of purchase. And I typically do...just didn't this time...good hindsight:C

RE: a purchase issue at GS Rally Phoenix

Hello Gdlow, Thank you for bringing this to our attention and my apologies for the trouble you have experienced. I was able to locate your information in my system, but if you could let me know which location this occurred at I would be happy to send this to my executive team to have someone reach out. Thank you! Elizabeth Black-Osborn Marcus Rapid Response Team It was at the Avondale, Az. store. We have a winter home in Sun City West, Az. The "I assume Manager" was a woman. A whitehaired gentleman at the cashiers desk was very pleasant...she was NOT... I at least got my money back...!!

a purchase issue at GS Rally Phoenix

We recently attended the GS rally in Phoenix and happened to buy a wireless speaker in the Camping world section of the vendors. It was listed at $25 on a closeout. By the time we waited in line for 30 minutes to checkout and then listen to the spiel for GS road assistance, etc. etc. we never paid attention to the price that was rung up. When we got home after the rally, my wife got out the receipts and found we had been charged $50. Of course the rally was over so we took it to a local Campingworld and explained what had happened. To begin with you would have thought I committed a crime bringing it in to them, as it was corporate that had the sale and not them and they were not going to refund the money because it rung up on their site as the amount we paid. So I just said well keep it then and just refund my money. They didn't want to as it was a closeout and it was sold by corporate not them. I asked for a corporate phone number and the ?manager? said let them have the damn money back and stormed off. I got the refund but GS has potentially lost a customer...

RE: Direct TV - Pro's/Con's RV Mobile vs Home 'second room'

I get both east and west coast feeds, and have for quite some time. I changed packages last year, and was told I cannot get one or the other..it must be both. And this is what I get as well...and have for a long time...maybe grandfathered??

RE: Verizon Unlimited

In the past my wife has upgraded her phone via my upgrade as she has an unlimited grandfather plan. I use a flip phone with no data plan. I would then take her old phone by switching numbers via our computer and use it for a month or so (paying the data plan rate)...then after a month or so I would go back to my old flip phone and since it wasn't a smart phone, they would not charge me for a data plan. A Costco rep says that Verizon has done away with that capability...anyone know for sure? thanks i'm not sure what you are asking IF asking about the wife upgrading and keeping her Unlimited plan the answer is NO if asking about temporarily switching to and using an old smart phone on your line and then switching back that should still work For the last several years my wife with her unlimited data plan has been on a month to month. Each time she needs (or thinks she does) a new phone I would use my upgrade and get the phone she wanted, but then I would have a data plan of 2gb...when we would get home, I would take her old smart phone and the new one under my number and switch them via computer...so now I would have the old smart phone and she would have the new one...after about a month I determined I really didn't need or use a smart phone do I switched the old smart phone of hers that I was using back to my flip phone and the data plan went away. It is now time (in her mind to upgrade again)...hence the question.

RE: Anyone make a HD portable antenna to get directv

I was thinking of purchasing a portable satellite antenna that receives directv on HD. The ones I am looking at buying are the Winegard G2 or the King Flex. But I am unwilling to purchase one for around $500. If someone or some company has one in the works which would get HD for Directv. Or even if Directv has a plan to change their system. Just wondering before buying. Go to Solidsignal.com ...the antennas will run about $70..get an app for your smart phone and you can aim it in a matter of just a few minutes...plus there is other things they will help you with to easily get setup...

RE: Windows 7 update and Browsers don't work

My Windows 7 laptop did a major Windows update last night as I shut down. This morning I found that neither Internet Explorer nor Google Chrome worked. Firefox was my only browser functioning. I did a System Restore to roll back the updates and all browsers worked again. Just wondering if anyone else ran into this problem. If I am reading your quote right, the problem was caused because you "SHUT DOWN" the computer. A really big mistake. Your computer went to the update site: found about 18 updates, down-loaded them, installed them, and was waiting for your computer to "RESTART" to configure them. When you went to "SHUT DOWN" the computer may have had a small marker meaning you needed to "RESTART. Not SHUT DOWN". The two versions of restart and shut down are not the same. When doing RESTART part of the "Reconfiguration" takes place while you see a warning not to shut down. The rest or "Reconfiguration" takes place right after you see Windows starting to reload and you are warned to give it time to finish before entering your password. Best thing for you to do now is to go to the update site and look for updates. Then down-load and install them. Watch what is going on, and hit button for "Restart" when asked. Also set up Windows Update to Notify you when updates are available. Too many things can go wrong when "Auto update" is going on in the background. This was a failure waiting to happen with 18 updates being handled in the background. My wife and I both have computers which updated...Mine went ok...hers didn't...I had to go back to earlier date, and re-do the update..this time went fine..

RE: Which surge protector?

I use the surge guard and have for 10 years...Had it protect a lot of times...Which one is best...I can't say, but as some one said earlier make sure you get the one that protects against more than surges.:C

RE: Boise to Madras oregon

George Miliken road spans between US20 just west of Brothers to Prineville on US26. It is a good bypass if you want to avoid Bend. (which I highly suggest) I have no experience with this road, but generally any paved road with center stripes and fog lines in central Oregon is fine. Zooming in tight with satellite views shows it to be a good road. I see an 18 wheeler on the road via satellite. I wouldn't hesitate to take it! Thanks Guys...Never thought of the sat. views to see and follow the road...I'm never going to quit learning and using something new...:C Took this route and it was a very nice road..but turned on GPS and it took us over thru Redmond to 97 then to Madras instead of going to Madras directly...not nearly as nice of road...AAH...Hindsight...

RE: Potential RV'ers from Alaska

Gary and Cathy...... I don't know where you live but it seems to me the easiest and most worry free solution would be to get a responsible next door neighbor to check on your house daily..... or a relative...... or anyone you would feel comfortable doing the task. There are three of us with RVs here in my neighborhood and that's what we do..... and have been doing it for years...... never a problem..... with a cell phone you could talk to them daily, if necessary. If there happens to be a problem that arises (or either of you have a question) you can get in touch with each other immediately. This solution is no big deal. Who picks up the papers and gets the mail for you?..... they can do it. You can even re-route your phone number to your cell phone. Like I said "it's no big deal", just come on down here to Texas. Everything is great (except the humidity), but you get used to it. We have tons of "snow birds" who come down here every year and they love it. What's funny is you want to come down here and we want to go up there. Good luck with whatever you decide. We live in Idaho...so no big deal when we leave and we already go to SCW Az. I was asking for my sister who has a hard time understanding there are a lot of people doing already what they want to do...
