RE: Camping World sale emails

You should probably be a bit more specific. I personally have never experienced a price problem with my local CW. Was an e-mail sent with an error in the pricing? If so, I would expect an apology, not an unreasonable discount. If ordered on-line, is it price plus shipping? Are we talking sales tax? Guess I'm just a bit confused by the post/rant. Happy Trails.

RE: Camping World "Something big is coming soon"

Anyone remember the signs along the road for "THE THING". Kept teasing you as you drove highway 66. Guess we will just have to wait until we get there to see what it is. :)

RE: Camping in Washington, Oregon, Northern California

Reasonable prices? A value judgment different to all of us. These suggestions may be expensive to some, but I personally feel they deliver an excellent resort or location. Strictly personal experience here: Rest-A-While on the Olympic Peninsular highway 101, fantastic scenery. Petaluma KOA, excellent location to San Francisco, gem of a KOA. Benbow Resort KOA in Garberville, excellent location for the Redwoods, resort setting. Hope this helps.

RE: Beware Fleetwood

A few RVs back we had a Pace Arrow. Excellent coach, reasonably problem free, and we enjoyed it for many years. The company did reorganize during the RV depression, so you might be dealing with old company vs new company...sort of like the GM thing. When you say you purchased a 4 month old coach, were you the first owner. Lack of manuals would be a dealer issue not a Fleetwood issue. But we are here to read your rant, so feel free to vent your frustrations. Hope things get better, and Happy Trails.

RE: Does the Tow Dolly have a tag and insurance?

In Calif the dolly is not a trailer, as the car has the tag...many DMV people don't realize this so you must bring it to the attention of the desk, instead you get a special sticker (usually used for farm equipment, etc) and it is good for 2 to 5 years (not sure). My RV coverage includes towables.

RE: How do you choose where to buy?

It must be the RV you want...right floor plan, right accessories, just everything, or almost everything, right. As for service, consider that you will never bring it back to the dealer for service, you might, but consider you will not. If it breaks on vacation you will need it fixed on vacation. If it is warranty, you will take to a warranty shop (lots of places can fix the frig, the oven, the water pump...even a mobile technician might get permission to fix a warranty problem. Besides, do not take it off the lot until any noticeable problem is fixed...none of this "we will fix it on your next service visit"...fix it now or no deal. With this in mind, negotiate be best price. Is it worth driving 2 hours for $100, maybe not, but how about for $1000. Good luck, and Happy Trails

RE: Roadside assistance-Coach-Net or Good Sam

As long as you never need them, Both are great. When you do need them, it will depend entirely on the contract station in your vicinity. Both will make the necessary calls. Both will connect you with a technician who will read to you the manual you probably have in your hand. Reading the many years of complaints posted about both, the rants were either about inefficient contract stations, or the ranter did not understand the limits of Emergency Roadside Assistance. Personally, I used Coachnet once and they couldn't find a provider in my location who would respond in less than 24 hours, and it was a weekday on highway 101 in Washington. I used Good Sam twice, the service was acceptable, both times in and around large cities. (that represents 3 calls in 24 years, closest about 2 years apart...not bad for luck). Anyway, Happy Trails, and my you never need ERA.

RE: Buying fuel with credit card

I think where you find this practice it is because of the policy of the credit card (cc) company or the intermediary. It is common to see signs posted at hotels notifying that a charge against the anticipated costs will be placed on the credit card and may last a few days after departure. Same is true when purchasing diesel on the CC at many locations. You could use multiple CC at the point of purchase. One card until the pump stops, then the second card, and often you can use the first card again. That way you will only be charged for the fuel dispensed. Or, if purchasing inside, instead of saying "a fill up" specify a dollar amount less than you really need. You won't top off, but you will not have a carry over charge. Happy Trails.

RE: Repair or replace fridge?

I had the coils replaced on my previous Norcold 1200. It worked well after the repair and I had no further issues.

RE: When is it too windy?

We've been in Laughlin when it was so windy we could literally and honestly not open the MH door because of wind pressure. The last few days have been rather windy (I won't say exceptionally, because our winds are rather normal) but the wind is supposed to stop today and tomorrow 4/17/16 is supposed to be beautiful. I'd wait for tomorrow if you can. If you must travel, unhooking the toad really is of no help. Just plan on driving slower since your speed plus the wind speed is often cumulative. Driving 45mph on the Pearblossum Highway with a head wind of 40mph will make the awning slap back and forth...I've seen a few actually pull out and be damaged on the road. The worst/dangerous portion will be on the 1-15 between Victorville and Riverside, as you go over the mountain sudden gusts appear between the ridges, this is the area where big rigs are often flipped. So even if you are careful and slow you need to be aware of the box next to you. Be careful, and Happy Trails.

RE: Tow bar

ReadyBrake (love the easy hookup and go) with a Demco light weight towbar. I had the towbar first, so I just added the ReadyBrake attachment. If I were to purchase new equipment I would just get the ReadyBrake Towbar unit. I don't remember what baseplate the shop used but it doesn't matter as ReadyBrake (and many other towbars) permit changing of the end coupling to match lots of brands.

RE: Would you drive in the snow?

No, for me No, if you have to ask I would say No.

RE: Road side assistance NOT

Many of us carry duplicate roadside assistance coverage, probably because it really is not that expensive, and as sort of a security blanket if one phone operator is less than helpful. I have Good Sam, a phone number offered by my motorhome insurance company, a phone number offered by my extended warranty company, and the roadside assistance from my car(toad) insurance company. All of these advertise that they will send help...from that point on I am on my own to make repairs. They will mount a usable tire (don't have one for the MH), make roadside repairs to get me moving (pound out a fender) or tow me to appropriate repair facility. So I have multiple numbers to call for help, but I anticipate I will have to pay for the help. That's just the way it is.

RE: Buying From Dealer Vs. Private Party

For the most important concept is finding the RV right for you. The dealer consolidates the search by maintaining an inventory. A large dealer can have several lots and a larger inventory. Buying from a private party means doing your own search for the right RV with the right floor plan. With both, I would not personally trust the phrase "this is an excellent well kept coach" without inspecting the unit carefully myself. If there is an area where I do not have the expertise, like the power train, I would ask a friend with knowledge to take a look, or I would as that it be reviewed by an independent mechanic. (unless the dealer offers a written warranty). The dealer can offer the loan, with a private party sale you need to have the where-with-all to put together your finances. The dealer will up charge the price of the RV to make a profit, the private party is selling privately because they did not want to accept what the dealer offered, and they want to gain/earn the higher price.

RE: Which Club or No Club?

Membership is not that expensive annually. I belong to FMCA as I like the magazine, I find the Goose Egg ID starts some nice conversations in campgrounds, and I have attended and enjoyed a few of their larger regional rallies. I belong to Goods Sam as the discount at Camping World usually covers most of the membership, possibly all if I make a few larger purchases, and the minimal discount at campgrounds added on for sure covers the membership. I get the AAA magazine from my son's membership, I really have no use for the AAA other services. I could live without the magazine, it seldom applies to RV travel, but still since I get it anyway I read it.

RE: Campground near Flagstaff Az

J&H was very nice. Really friendly, lots of rules but cute signage making following the rules fun. (Nothing that a good camper wouldn't do anyway). Really liked the place. However, I would basecamp in Williams about 15 miles west. The Circle of Pines KOA has very large level sites, lots of big trees, good WiFi, heated indoor pool, really nice playground and very nice dog run. Camped there more than a few times. Don't miss BearAzona if you have a chance. Happy Trails.

RE: CO Hwy 550 - Montrose to Durango

DO NOT DO IT! It is a lovely beautiful scenic drive in a car. The Million Dollar highway has many small turnouts, viewpoints, and a huge memorial to those who have lost their lives building and maintain the road. It was once featured in the TV show "Most Dangerous Roads". Sharp turns (you can check your own tail-lights) steep drops, traffic rushing to get home or work, and steep grades. My knuckles still hurt from holding the steering wheel, and that was some 20 years ago. Take an extra day, go all the way around down Highway 25 and across. Then take the lovely drive to Silverton and Quaray in the car. JMHO

RE: Illegal / dangerous to pull 11,000 trailer rated 10,000 lbs?

I really have no idea about the safety issue. If you are involved in an accident you can bet the other party will try to attribute blame to your being over weight. JMHO
