RE: Aluminum vs Fiberglass Siding?

I am coming back into this conversation to reinforce my opinion earlier. I have owned RV's with both types of siding. A woman backed her car into my aluminum sided class C years ago. Repair was difficult to find some one who could do it. They had to replace a number of laps of siding to get it right, even then the color was way off and visible for as long as I owned the coach. I have damaged two Class "A" RV's with fiberglass siding and I actually repaired them my self, including the paint which I was able to get a terrific match on. On fiberglass it is important to repair it as soon after it happens as possible. If necessary tape over the hole or scrape until you can get to repairing it permanently.

RE: Aluminum vs Fiberglass Siding?

Fiberglass is I think the most easily repaired. Aluminum usually requires replacement of some areas. I have repaired several holes and scratches on fiberglass myself, was not a big problem.

RE: Maybe a terrible decision?

Again I personally agree with the o/p, get an attorney involved especially if you feel you have tried and it has or is going no where. I have personally used them and usually a letter or a phone call is sufficient to get satisfaction. It is not that expensive, if you factor in the lost time, aggravation, and so far the loss of your money. If it ends up going clear to court, then try to get your legal cost as part of the judgement.

RE: Maybe a terrible decision?

This is the saddest story. a crooked dealer sold your original pick at a better price or he would have given you the option to fix it, or cancel the purchase. Never ever trust a dealer, I do not care how nice they appear to be. Always get an outside 3rd party appraisal. I would recommend consulting an attorney and see if it is feasible to pursue the dealer.

RE: buying from a private seller

Soundguy, I understand your position on buying a financed RV. However as one o/p stated the banks have excellent systems between them for handling that kind of transaction. When you buy a car, the dealer probably does not own it, a bank or financial institution does. Your bank will make all the arrangements to get the title in their name and yours. Getting it thoroughly checked out prior to the sale, I absolutely agree with.

RE: rear living with slide a problem?

I had a Itasca with basement A/C that vented near the awning. Now this was problem on hot days when the A/C was running frequently. It was also very noisy. Your furnace will not be running generally when you are setting outside. Your water heater is insignificant for heat expulsion.

RE: Does costco give discount off of posted fuel price.

I see a tanker truck at Costco several times a week. I would think with this volume of fuel being used that water in the fuel would be almost nil. I have never had a problem with any of my vehicles on Costco fuel

RE: Propane Fire Pits

Another great thing about them is, your neighbors that have COPD will greatly appreciate the lack of smoke. Even though they may not be setting around your fire ring, they are enjoying it as much as you.

RE: Generators

There is so much to learn from these forums, why must we get into pissing matches of the use of words or a little error of statement?

RE: No need to camp to see critters...

coolbreeze01 totally agree with you. Some people just feel the need to kill wild animals. I have never figured them out. I moved from one little town because the men's main sport was shooting cats. What this did for them; I haven't a clue, but they loved to gather at the local coffee shop and brag about their kills.

Interesting post will follow.

RE: No need to camp to see critters...

Bob cats would be great to watch. I am betting you cannot have any small animals of your own however. I have more deer than I know what to do with, but while they raise hell with the garden they are harmless. We have the usual ground hogs, squirrels, and Muskrats, lots of cottontails and all of this living in the city limits. I envy you getting to watch Bob cats.

RE: cost of camping

If you finance your rig, you have not begin to add up the real cost of owning an RV. Plus you are underwater almost immediately. The condo, when you are done you walk away and stop paying that day. No taxes, no upkeep, no debt cost,no insurance cost, no white knuckle driving,however, you do have one real advantage and that is no bed bugs. I have always preferred RV'g until lately.

RE: rv lot and septic

I would think as long as you met the zoning code, there would be nothing further that need to be done. Sewer waste pretty much take care of themselves.

RE: Good Service

Nice to hear a positive story once in awhile. Have a good trip sans any more problems.

RE: Total loss, adjuster wants copy of title prior to settlement

Seems to me the adjuster is being completely realistic. You can be sure he does not make these policy decisions on his own. Once they pay you off on the vehicle, it is theirs, in a sense they just purchased it.

RE: Heavy equipment going electric instead of diesel.

Man I do not know where you fellows COSTCO stations are but I have never had to wait at all, ever, at ours, no matter what day it is.

RE: New purchase - Protective Asset Protection

Put the cost of a warranty in the bank or a CD and build on it every year. Insure yourself, because in the end that is what is going to happen. If you are lucky and I was for over 20 years. I still had all my money in the bank and never had to pay a single warranty premium. Sure in my first year of RV'g I bought one and took a beating on it right off the mark. It is often hard to find repair places that will accept warranty companies for repair. They want you to pay them and then you deal with your warranty company for you money back. Sure warranty companies will tell the repair shop they have a CC number and guarantee payment, but it does not work out that way. There is always a hitch that bungles the deal. Take care of yourself.You will be glad you did.
