RE: Campground Question

It's not right, but it happens. On the flip side, if I am leaving a park early, either because we are bored, the weather changed, or our plans changed, I will always stop by the office and tell them so that some other traveler can have the site. I don't anticipate a refund, most parks and hotels have a no-refund policy for early departure, but on occasion I have been surprised when offered a refund or credit. It's just being nice.

RE: 2014 Chevy Equinox LTZ

If your looking for a new towbar anyway, consider the ReadyBrake Brut system. I like mine, and there is no box to move about. Just sayin. Still towing my Vue.

RE: Towing a Mini Van

You write light...I bet it is over weight for the MH rating, it might even be over the 5000lb of the hitch rating.

RE: Best RV park in Jackson, WY

We just made reservations at the Virginian, this will be our third trip over the years. It is a (or was last time)a gravel parking lot type campground behind the Hotel lodge. You have access to the lodge pool, laundry, etc. The advantage is that it is in town. Up close and personal to all the tourist attractions. Sometimes we like to be remote, sometimes not...this is a not trip.

RE: Dash radio died

Mine has a rest whole in the face, just to the left of the buttons. The unit went dead, as you describe, and I was told to use a paperclip to rest the system. It worked, and still works fine. Hope this helps.

RE: propane/exhaust smell from fridge

Hope it is not the odor of the coolant!

RE: For what it's worth...Flying J and Pilot

OK, so employees who were given too much responsibility with too little oversight decided they could pad their income. The company will pay the government a really big fine to make it all go away. The public gets very little if nothing in return. But the government is happy. The significant part of the report is that the corporation was not involved in a plan to cheat the system.

RE: Warrenty Company

I'll try to be constructive: I have used wholesalewarraties.com for many years, and have found them to very helpful when I had claims. With my first claim, they walked me through the process, check in regularly to make sure all was progressing. In a later claim, where there was some static in the process they helped get the ball rolling again, and the claim was settled in my favor. There are many different warranties, covering only a few to many items on the RV. I believe the term is concequencial coverage, which is usually extra coverage, that covers things not normally covered when a covered item fails. Finally, You Must Understand And Follow All the Rules. Prior authorization is a must for all but emergency service. You cannot fix it yourself. And, you need to find a shop that is willing to work with the warranty coverage...make the phone calls, wait for the inspector on large jobs, and accept the payment scale. Personally, I have found extended warranties worth while, perhaps not always paying for themselves but keeping the cost of repairs to a controllable average. JMHO

RE: Oregon 101 drive with 30ft. TT?

Beautiful road, drove it in a 38ft MH with toad without a problem. Personally, the only part of highway 1 which must be avoided with a large vehicle is Big Sur area between Carmel and Morro Bay. I have not had any problem with any part of the 101. Sure, there are some turns in Carmel, and near San Francisco, but nothing to be concerned about. My favorite campground in the Olympic Peninsula area is Rest-A-While. Not much of a campground but a spectacular view in a quiet restful area.

RE: Full hookup questions

The 6 or 10 gallon RV water heater tends to get the water very hot so when it is mixed with cold water for showers we find there is more than enough hot water for two people to take rather extended showers. I usually leave my dump valves closed when we camp, as it permits a more complete flush. If we are using the washer, or entertaining and using the sink in excess I will leave the gray valve open. The black valve is kept closed and only opened when dumping, followed with a flush from the gray valve.

Jackson Wy to Logan Ut

On our return from Yellowstone next month I was considering a route; 189 from Jackson to the 26 to the 89 until Brigham City. The map shows lots of wiggly lines between Bear Lake and Logan. How is this route for a 40ft MH and toad, and a 36ft 5th wheel. Looks like a beautiful drive. Looking forward to responses from anyone who has taken that route.

RE: Service appointments

I use a mobile tech for all my service, emergency and routine. Call a local campground and get a number for the person they recommend.

RE: Campgrounds with RV's near Yosemite Park

I recommend Mariposa/Yosemite KOA. We've stayed a few times, always with good memories.

RE: Stuck on road with very slow response time?

Based on my experience, absolutely not normal. You don't mention where you are, or where assistance must travel from. I do know that when I called the first question is: are you safe in a safe place. With a one year old you should be able to accurately say that you are not in a safe location for the child. Hope all ends well, if not satisfactory.

RE: Confused about dealer response to order inquiry

Find a dealer who wants your business.

A positive experience with GS

I wanted (needed) the metal folding step shown in the current Camping World advertisement. Finding time to drive to the CW store was becoming problematic, so I decided to order on-line, adding a few items to reach the free shipping option (which I significantly exceeded). Delivery was noted to be 7-10 days, and I really wanted the supplies in about 14 days. My order was placed on Saturday, I received a notice that it was shipped on Monday, and I received the entire order today, Tuesday. I could not ask for better service. Thank you Camping World.

RE: Good Sams Roadside assistance

I'm just guessing, but I don't think you mean roadside assistance, I believe you are talking about the extended warranty. I do have an extended warranty, not GS, and I have had many different companies extended warranties over the years. All require prior authorization before the work is done, and this usually is only available during "normal business hours." Of course the company needs to verify the VIN number, mileage, ownership, etc, otherwise anyone could use your policy for their vehicle. If you are really writing about roadside assistance, you made it to a service facility, therefore GS would have no responsibility. JMHO

RE: Towing with a car caddy

I used a KarKaddy II for over 25 years without a problem, towing a variety of cars, large and small. The Kaddy does not have a suspension since the vehicle being transported uses it's suspension for stability. I would hook the safety chains over the frame when the car did not have tow rings. But the safety chains are loose, meant for a break-away situation, not as a tie-down. The tire tie-downs are tight, allowing the car to bounce freely during travel. Not that I question your mechanic, especial if he is a friend but; I have been told that dirt on the shocks means I need new shocks, I need brakes since I only have 20% left, and corrosion on the battery cable is a sign I need a new battery. Some of these guys work on commission. Get a second opinion. As for the back getting the full affect of the bumps....guess you better not drive the streets of Los Angeles, Some of the potholes are so big you could park a Smart Car in them.
