RE: Too old???

You are only as old as you think your are. I say go for it, just don't rush anything, take your time and enjoy it. I was well into my 70's when I hung it up and I only hung it up because I lost my navigator to Pneumonia. We would still be out there otherwise. We down sized our motor home from a 36 to a 26. Did not make that much difference except we could not pack as much junk along.

RE: What's up with RV Sales People?

You could write a book about all the reasons people abandon the RV lifestyle after they invest so much money. Some finance and find out they are under water almost immediately, some the highway travel scares them off. Many of the rigs sold even as new,develop so many problems they just cannot keep up with them. My first 60 days was spent in dealers for repairs of **** that should have been taken care of at the factory. Dealers are not super friendly after the sale. In general just realize they made a major mistake and get out while they can.

RE: What's up with RV Sales People?

PPL is honest about its mission in the RV business. They ask me what I felt I had to have for my rig. I told them, they told me they would go for more than that, as the more they get for it the more they make. I left Texas for the return trip to Indiana in a rented car. Took two days, by the time I got home there was a message on my machine that they had a buyer at a better price than I asked. It sold in less than a week. I might mention they are a great source of RV supplies and equipment, you can buy on line, I have never had a regret. NO I DO NOT IN ANY WAY WORK FOR THEM.

RE: Connecticut closing state campgrounds after the 4th of July

This IMHO is just a prelude to their getting ready to tell you they need to raise a tax of some kind. Here in Indiana, Fort Wayne area they want to add $20-$75 per year per vehicle now when you purchase your plates. We already have a wheel tax, regular tax, and our license plate fees are far above those in say Ohio. State campground site fees are comparable to private parks.

RE: What's up with RV Sales People?

I sold on consignment through PPL and was very satisfied. Contrary to one poster they sure do inspect your rig close. You have to have it Safety inspected and weighed. They found I had a slight leak in a propane tank valve and I had to authorize repairing it or they would not put it on the lot. That place even in the worst of times is loaded with people all the time. I had to make an appointment just to get a sales rep to handle my transaction. They are nice people.

RE: Leaving camper unoccupied - help

Set some sandals or depending on your location some muddy boots out on the step or on the ground near the step. Probably your best bet is just not worry about it, what do you carry insurance for.

RE: Pop-Up Camper Pops its Top on Expressway

The guy following; had he swerved to avoid the wreckage could have been deadly. It appears he took a pretty good bounce. I give him credit for hanging tight.

RE: Boatahome??

Like one poster said for some one around lots of water, it would be really an asset. For the general public no so much. I also wonder how stable this is on land setting on a flimsy trailer.

RE: Keep Wipers Over or Under Windshield Cover ?

If you can put them under the cover, it will keep most of the UV off them as it is a major rubber enemy. I always done that with my class C coaches.

RE: Been reading post on electrical

I wish I had the electrical savvy some of you guys have.

RE: Coast to coast in an Electric car towing a trailer.

Funny how every one dwells on the negatives, when our mental prowess would be better spent on finding solutions. This is the future.

RE: road side

I change companies almost yearly and it generally runs $90.00 - $100.00.

RE: Amazed and Disgusted

It is a fact. In the forty years I have been camping I have seen the general manners of people deteriorate to the point; it is a wonder some times how there isn't more ASS Whooping that does not go on. The guy washing his rig in the dump area while others are waiting, (Ass whoop offense), you are not going to reason with this kind of gristle head. People with dogs, well this has been beat to death.

RE: planned GPS outage on the west coast

Why are always looking for something worry about. I don't trust my GPS further than a block from home.

RE: A Safety Lesson Learned

I have always carried the triangles, just be sure to set them up far enough away from your rig to allow stopping or time for traffic to move over.

RE: Camping world Salesmen ??

(Ford Truck Guy) makes a valid point. If the sales department is less than enthusiastic about a sale, the service would be 10 times worse. Actually these slackers do you a favor; they save you future headaches. There is an RV for sale on every street corner in every town.

RE: Mircowave/convection oven

Yes it will work on 30 Amps. However, do not run the A/C at the same time.

RE: Manufacturer Repairs

Winnie did not compensate me for my expenses of getting my rig to the factory for repair but they sure went above and beyond taking care things I did complain about and many I did not complain about
Homer 06/04/16 06:42pm General RVing Issues

Unfortunately this is not new. It has been going on for the 40+ years I have been going camping. I just do not go on Holidays any more, not worth it.

RE: ? "Best" Coffee Maker?

For me a $15 Mr. Coffee and eight O'clock or now Wal-Marts own private label coffee is as good as it gets. Kiss
