RE: avoiding Chicago area traffic

It'll probably take you longer with a lot of stop and go and traffic lights. As long as you don't hit it at rush hour,won't be bad.

RE: Looking for an Extended Warranty Company

Look into Route 66 Classic Coverage, they list what is NOT covered. Had them for our '94 Adventurer and they were great to work with. More than got the cost back on a generator rebuild. Route 66

RE: So my fridge just died

Was just at National rv refrigeration a month ago. Leon is great to work with and had a good selection of rebuilt units ready for installation. If nothing else, give him a call.

RE: Interesting customer service attitude

Well, if they don't have anyplace in your area, what else can they tell you when you ask for a place in your area? The CS person maybe could have stated it more nicely, but in the end a goose egg is a goose egg. My point was that I was using their website to locate a service location, and it was nowhere near current

Interesting customer service attitude

Have a 2000 Itasca Suncruiser with basement air. Brought it home yesterday to do some work on it and started the a/c. The unit was making a noise I hadn't heard before, so went online to the ColemanAirexcel site to locate a service shop There were 3 shown within 50 miles of me. Phone calls to all 3 resulted in similar answers - we haven't done that for years, but they won't take our name down. Tried calling Airexcel and couldn't get to speak to anyone so sent an email to customer support explaining problem and asked for a call to direct me to a service center. Today I get a call according to caller ID from Airexcel. Pickup phone and get "Hey, how's it going?" I asked who's calling and get " Eric, was told to call you". Explained what I needed and all service centers on their website no longer did service. Response was, I don't have a secret list so if you find somebody let us know. Goodbye. Since they also make the rooftop units, wonder if they treat everyone the same. Obviously, their website is of no help to anyone needing help.

RE: Has anything ever happened that wasn't the RV Park's fault

Chill out westernparkowner. For every problem guest there are 1000 good ones. At our Colorado park we don't have problems, we have opportunities. Sometimes they are opportunities to help a customer understand his rig.That guest made it very clear that it was not my place to help him understand his rig. Get slapped around a few times by those 1 out of 1000 you don't take chances with the other 999. Nice to see you bash your guests on the World Wide Web!! This is your interpretation with out any debate from the guest!! Cool,, lets just all label them as stupid because your so smart!! Great business sense!! But it's OK for people to come on here and bash a campground without the campgrounds response? That happens more often than complaints from a campground.

RE: Are you Disssapointed with Windows 10

Tried 2 different times to upgrade my think pad t500 and went back to win7 both times. 10 was slower and didn't like the fact I have 2 graphics cards. 10 kept insisting I had 2 monitors and the cursor kept disappearing.

RE: Program new key for 2002 Jeep Wrangler

Just went to Lowe's and had a key made for my 02 wrangler sport. Didn't know they were programmed. Key from Lowe's works same as Jeep key.

RE: Chicago Bypass

Definitely take 294 and before 3 or after 6 would be best.

RE: Refrigerator not working. Leaving for 3 week trip

Why not contact campground or someone in Ft Myers to see if they know anyone that would install a residential unit. You can find a 10 cu ft at Lowe's, etc for about $500. Much less than the new Domestic will cost you and bigger.

RE: EZpass help please

Look into the IPass from IL. You can order one by phone but it takes 2 weeks to get it. You get the discount no matter what state you're in. There are no monthly fees.IPass and EZ Pass work in all the northeastern states, but not in Texas yet

RE: How many use HAM vs C/B for rig to rig etc?

Ladies and Gents, But, this post is primarily for those who have experience with HAM radios, maybe use them from RV to RV while traveling and or, also my use them in say, Jeep to Jeep while venturing off road. My level of license is TECHNICIAN and, there are two levels higher. There's the problem. No one in the rv club I belong to has a ham license, nor do any of the people I used to off road with. However, the majority of the rv'ers and all the Jeepers had a CB. I use my uV-5r mainly for storm spotting.

RE: Never Assume !

Not sure how to say this, but if you assumed tires would hold air all winter, that's a really bad bad bad assumption. If you go by the book, you really can't assume they'll hold air for a day. Ideally you check the tires at the initiation of every drive and at every fuel stop... ...and maybe that seems extreme and I know a lot of folks don't do the every trip/every fuel up, but seriously after anything more than a month or two, you really need an 'official' pressure reading and several visual inspections in between. Not trying to start anything, but do you do the same for your daily driver? If not, how are those tires different?

RE: Winnebago Ad?

Discovered the ads are only on my Android tablet, not on my windows 7 desktop. Any one have any ideas?

RE: Winnebago Ad?

If I use Woodall's, I get the Winnebago ads. If I use rv.net, I don't. This just started yesterday.

RE: Camping World sells cheap Junk.....

Seriously SCV... blow it out your @@@@@@.... it's not that I can't get more screws...it is simply the fact that the MFG is to cheap to include enough screws to securely fasten their product to the wall...AT LEAST 4 would have been nice.... In my past experiences in 59 + years is that most MFG always had EXTRA hardware in them.. I see whats wrong you are from Cali..... you guys are like a bowl of Granola....... what isn't fruits or nuts...is flakes... Well, since you just said the MFG screwed up, why are you blaming Camping World? You must have lead a sheltered life if this is the first time you've had a problem with a purchase. I know I've had plenty in over 75 years.

RE: What's a good semi-smart phone?

Guess I should have been a little more specific in my question. DW wants a smart phone, but neither of us are smart phone savvy. And yes we are looking for both a phone and plan recommendations. Just really need the basics; camera, the web, gas buddy, raindar, maps and a few assorted other apps. No contract and a reasonable price with a broad network coverage. She'd probably do some texting and email, but heavy usage of these would be on the MacBook. Thanks for all the great replies. Buy an unlocked phone ( I bought a motorola moto g at Best Buy), buy the Tracfone SIM card for about $9.00 and transfer your existing tracfone minutes, etc. over to the new phone. The moto g uses the AT&T network and i haven't had any coverage problems. For $50.00 you can get 1,000 minutes talk, 2,000 text, and 500MB data good for 90 days or less than $17.00 a month. As a side note, the moto g came with android 4. As soon as I started it, it upgraded itself to android 5, and just recently upgraded to android 6 marshmallow. Also, motorola has a program that will transfer all your info, contacts, etc from your old phone.

RE: New Flooring Peel and Stick Tiles

Did it in my old '94 Adventurer. Put down a layer of 1/8" plywood, used a sealer for adhesive tiles, then put down the tiles. Had no problem with tile moving or lifting. Just make sure surface is perfectly clean.

Just moved from a 5" Tom Tom to using TomTom mobile go on my 10" Lenovo tablet. What a difference in view ability. TomTom mobile downloads full map so you don't need wifi or data usage.
