RE: Stuck on I81 in VA with no help from my Allstate Motor Club

Holy Smokes I just signed up with Allstate. I suppose I will regret that. I do have 3 back up providers however.

RE: Ever lost a mirror to a two lane road?

I have ticked mirrors with an oncoming truck on a narrow country road that was not supposed to have truck traffic on it. Fortunately it was just a tick and not more. Neither of us stopped. I was able to repair mine, will never know about his.

RE: Amazon Same Day Delivery

I usually opt for the standard delivery 5-7 days. I almost always get the item in two days. Only variance being if it is being drop shipped from manufacturer. I have no idea how they do it, the next quickest service is Wal-Mart online.

RE: Brand loyalty LOL or not

RV's are no different than Auto manufacturers. They make a host of different brand names; several can be made in the same factory.It is a marketing thing, visa vie Winnebago and Itasca. Your best guide is if you like what you have then stick with it. The board of directors make all the final decisions on who will be their suppliers,how many units a day must be made to turn the kind of profit they want. Some care about customer loyalty others don't, they adhere to the P.T. Barnum philosophy.

RE: Can't believe what i heard

2oldman does that mean a bricklayer can use marshmallows to lay up a wall as long as he calls himself a bricklayer? This sales man and his boss should be hauled before the courts for malicious pedaling of false and dangerous information that could easily get some one killed.

RE: Senior Moments

I watched a elderly man and woman back their 5ver in at a c/g in Tenn. The slope was considrable. He commenced to unhook the tow truck w/o chocking the wheels apparently brakes were not locked up. Down the hill went his 5ver with his wife trying to hold it back. Fortunately she was in front of it. It stopped in the creek at the bottom of the hill. I would guess that never happened to him again the rest of his life.

RE: Insurance pay for plugging into the wrong power sorce?

I can't see the insurance company paying for this. It is an accident, but born out of ignorance of fact. He best get an expert electrician to check his entire system out. It is a learning curve, albeit an expensive one. If it had been caused by a power surge then insurance might be liable.

RE: To dog owners

an errant brain disabled neighbor let his dog out occasionally to lay under his 5ver. Once my cat was asleep in her bag chair when I came out the door this mutt was making a bee line to the cat. No dog on earth ever had his ears twisted and pulled like that SOB, when I got a hold of him. He screamed for mercy. His owner screamed for mercy, which only came when he put a leash on his mutt and got him out of my yard.

RE: Issues aren't always what they first appear.

Over the years of RV'g I would like to have a buck for every time this has happened to someone. Worse than this is when someone is putting water in the black tank prior to dumping and forget to turn it off. You better hope the seal holds at the toilet. My personal goof was filling the fresh water tank and then getting involved with something else and a gusher comes out the overflow. No harm done but I only wanted about 20 gal in the tank for traveling.

RE: Warning on RVDirect for those currently looking

I don't see how anyone can afford to pay debt load (financing cost) on top of the price of the RV. You are under water immediately with absolutely no hope of ever getting on balance. When you sell, the depreciation and loan cost will more than pay for top flight accommodations. Yes I am a RV owner and have been for many many years.

RE: "Flawless,excellent, clean" RANT

People have listened to commercail business lie and overstate so long they have adopted it as the way to do business. I know I am not the only one that knows of a used car, furniture, mattress,appliance dealer, that blatently overstates their merchandise all the time, yet they find that P.T. Barnum sucker often enough and long enough to stay in business. Pity the Newbie that has no clue.

RE: Do you subscribe to satellite radio? Favorite programs?

dbblsX2: Just wish I could Ala cart what I pay for. 99% of the programming I have no interest in at all. After all no one can listen to more than one program at a time. They will not do it - so I don't do XM any more

RE: Bear Beds

put all those dollars on the plywood and sleep on them. I can take any mattress and put a COSTCO Novafoam topper on it and be perfectly comfortable for about $125.00

RE: New proposed Gas tax

These are insane propositions. Tennessee is typically $.50 a gallon cheaper than Ohio and Indiana. We already have these taxes to the tune of $.41 a gallon. There is just no fix for stupid.

RE: Coiled Fresh Water Hose - Any Good?

I have used a white coiled hose for over 5 years now and it works just fine. Easy to store. My only complaint was I could only get a white one in the half inch size I prefer 5/8". I am still using it and would not part with it. The o/p who mentioned the coils present a trip hazard is right. Then so is your sewer hose, and a myriad of other things around an RV. Awning struts get me every time.

RE: Left Bleach in FW tank…ooops. How long is safe?

Suggest not putting bleach in black and grey tanks. Kill bacteria culture which is necessary for waster break down. The bleach will not hurt anything in the water tanks. Sometimes if left in toooo long it will crystallize and plug pump screens. I would suggest running diluted baking soda water through after evacuating the bleach to sweeten the system again.

RE: After all these years....

Maybe it wasn't a camper. Possibly some one had visitors and one of them sort of thought he would like to have one of those. Came back in the middle of the night and requisitioned yours. Always sorry to hear this sort of thing happen. One of the assets of camping is the trust and honesty of most campers.

RE: AHHH! Dropped my water tank!

I agree 2oldman: When you think of the weight in a full water tank, plus the cost of hauling H2O around, why do it? Even big trucks are specially constructed for hauling of liquids.

Looks like a Moose in Indiana.
