RE: Thin air mattress

We used to use Thermorest self-inflating mattresses when tent camping. They are the absolute best thin air mattresses. Thermorest also sells straps that join the singles into doubles, we used the straps. I'll take a look at them. Thank you!

RE: Thin air mattress

Excellent suggestions, thank you! Camp Mor got me close. In fact, they had the very Coleman one I referenced, but only in a queen size, which is (annoyingly) about 3 inches too wide to fit. They have tons of sleeping pads the correct thickness, but that are only a single width. I think I might wander over to REI this evening and see what they have in stock. How about buying two of the single width mattresses? Some of the ones meant for a sleeping bag are pretty narrow. I had wanted to find something that I could put a mattress pad and sheet over. The sofa is leather (or leatherish) and is a rather hot surface to sleep on without something covering it. I may go ahead and put in an order for the one on Amazon in hopes that they can dig one up for me. It doesn't look as if I have many other options, sadly.

RE: Northwood Manufacturing's Defective Trailer

This is the second rant post this week about a damaged RV and the other owner decided to do nothing about it but wring hands. I'm posting to find out if this will be a one-and-out or if the owner will take some action. I dunno dude...do you practice being this way, or does it come naturally? The poster you are referring to, brought her story, explained it as best she could, and ultimately, proved a bunch of you to be the fools you are, coming back with the news that her insurance company, Mutual of Omaha, totaled her 5th, due to a manufacturers design issue. People come on here, in the naivete thinking that posting their problem will get them maybe an answer, maybe some guidance...something, anything, that might help. Instead they get slammed by people that have nothing else better to do than play whacker-mole with them. Gary Haupt I nominate Gary for poster of the week. :C Seconded. There are a number of posters here who contribute nothing but personal attacks on other posters. They are best remanded to the bit bucket, since they contribute nothing whatsoever.

RE: VIAIR air compressors?

Timely post. Thank you. It never occured to me that my aged Walmart compressor that I've been using on 5ers and TTs would probably fall over and die with the new coach. Something else to add to the shopping list!

Thin air mattress

I've been looking about for a thin air mattress, about 4-5" thick without much luck. My coach sofa folds down and is padded, but is uncomfortable and lumpy because of the seams in the cushions. I was looking for something that could be folded to take up very little space between uses, thus a mattress topper or some such is not an option. Does anyone have any suggestions? The one fairly thin one that I found on Amazon says 1-2 months shipping time, which doesn't sound very promising. Nobody else seems to have that exact model. Thanks!

RE: Washer drains to black tank

On the brighter side, if you wash clothes frequently that should solve the problem of keeping your black tank clean. Exactly! For a full timer, this may well be an issue. For me, it works out nicely. I usually do a load, even on weekend trips because I have "house clothes" and "camper clothes" so I don't have to pack anything other than meds, laptop, kindle and chargers.

RE: Washer drains to black tank

Winnebago did confirm that this was by design. I was just curious about how common a setup it is. For my uses, it's actually not a bad thing. I camp mostly weekends or a week or so at a time right now, so getting extra water into the black works out well for me. I generally always have a site with sewer hookups, so having to dump mid trip isn't a huge issue.

RE: Camping World Berkley, Ma

Winnebago tracks all of the calls that they receive. Ask them if they were even contacted by Camping World regarding the repairs. You may find that the requests have never even been submitted.

RE: Walmart DEF - Check carefully

Is it just me or does not the time and effort to return used oil or fake DEF not seem to exceed the cost and value of the product itself? The return line is always atrocious at my local Walmart.

Washer drains to black tank

I recently discovered that my washing machine drains into the black tank of my new coach. On my 5ers, the washer either drained to a gray tank or, in the case of my last one, bypassed the tank completely and went right to the sewer line. Is this a normal setup for a motorhome?

RE: Stuck on road with very slow response time?

Got the following from the "Rapid Response" Team on 7/4, I replied immediately with my contact info, never heard from them. raroberts, Thank you for your time and post. If able please send me a PM with your contact information. I would like to get some details on your experience and share them with our executive team. Thank you in advance for the information. Mark F Marcus' Rapid Response Team goodsamcs@goodsamfamily.com Very soon you'll certainly hear from the gaggle of good sam shills who spend all of their time posting personal attacks against anyone who complains about good sam services and who get a free pass from the moderators.

RE: Stuck on road with very slow response time?

Called Good Sams due to flat tire...siting in truck with three kids and my 1 year old. An hour after phone call I'm still waiting for a return call with a plan if action from Good Sams. Is this normal? It's pretty normal. You'll be there for a while.

RE: Camping World in Lakewood NJ sells lemons

We have two Camping World stores, one is ~30 miles away and the other is ~57 miles. We went to the Lakewwood Camping World to have windows awnings installed, two weeks later I called to see if they were installed the manager told us that they were installed with the wrong fabric color. Had to re-order new ones, they removed the ones that were installed and as soon as they come in it won't take long to install the correct awnings. We board a horse ~25 mies away and our son said let's go to Camping World and see whats going on with the coach. We walked to the back lot where the coach was and saw that the window awnings were still on, I was told that they were off. During the installation for the two bedroom awnings they installed them in the wrong location, had to move them over ~4", the holes were still there to show what happened, also on the front slide window when installing the hold down bracket the drill bit walked and had a scratch across the decal for over 6". We now only deal with the Swedesboro, NJ store. Did they repair the damage that they did to your coach or did they just leave the holes?

RE: Towing overage?

Not to bust chops in an ugly situation, but we gave up on the good sam. They never called. We are being towed out in the morning by our insurance to the dealer that can and will work on it. I guess that covers the good sam towing. Thank goodness for Geico. Ken Another satisfied customer! Call and get your money back that you paid for the "membership." That's exactly what I did.

RE: 20 &30 amp to 50 amp adapter wiring?

Out of curiosity, why would you do this yourself? The manufactured units are fairly cheap, tested and generally reliable. "Service unavailable" message once again. What's going on with the forum hosting these days anyway?

RE: washer and dryer in RV

Having had both, I would recommend the combo unit. You can never forget a load of wet laundry and you get back a ton of storage space by eliminating one appliance.

RE: Yukon Canada

So a break down becomes a drama and hours to get help. Hrm. "Service unavailable" strikes again.
