RE: extended warranty

I've been exceptionally happy with the service received from WholesaleWarranties.com. Claims have been paid without a hitch, and WW assisted to make sure I crossed all the Ts in the process.

RE: Winegard G2 Antenna security

Really? 35+ years of RVing with reasonable caution, and I've never had anything missing from a campsite. Maybe I'm just luck. I guess you could use and engraving tool to put your numbers into the metal/plastic, but then someone could just buff it out. And I'd be more concerned with the damage to the roof. Enjoy your rving, and happy Trails.

RE: Out of level campsite pads

I've been to a few private parks where leveling required raising the front wheels off the ground. This required blocks under the hydraulic jacks and for safety, blocks under the wheels. When possible, I ask for another site, but that is not always possible. I understand the cost constraints in publicly funded campgrounds, but there is no excuse for a private campground to advertise a site that is not even close to level. It would be nice if the camping guide books(Trailer Life, AAA, etc) would show in block letters SITES NOT LEVEL, and rate accordingly...I really think this is more important then how clear the signs are, or even neatness of showers.

RE: Port Angeles Washington camping

It's been a few years, but we enjoyed the Port Angeles KOA when we last stayed in the area.

RE: Walmart Wouldn't Fix a Flat

It is indeed possible that there is a law or regulation in the state regarding trailer tires. It is also very possible that Walmart was aware of the law and Sears was not. The number of regulations on the books in states and localities regarding motorvehicles are innumerable. Glad you got the tire fixed. Happy Trails

RE: Handicapped accessible RV

We researched a while ago for Mom, and recently when we thought my wife would need special access. (So far not required, thank God). Anyway, both Winnebago and previously Fleetwood, had departments to assist with special needs.

RE: Bathroom Door Lock?

So you had me going, I actually went out and looked at the rig, which is parked next to the house. Winnebago has a bathroom door lock.

RE: Installing Ready Brake in Ford C-Max Energi

It's just another light on the dash, looks factory installed. The hole in the carpet is behind the brake peddle, you never see it.

RE: Tehachapi pass

The decent on the North is a long downhill. I take that road 4 to six times a year with the MH and car in tow. Just watch and maintain your downhill speed, and do not ride your brakes. I find it comfortable to stay below 50mph and only tap the brakes as I approach or exceed that speed. Trucks are relegated to 35 I think. Truly you shouldn't have a problem.

RE: Good sam roadside assistance

When your stuck on the roadside with a damaged tire, or if your about to leave the campsite and the jacks don't work or the engine won't start...then it is worth it. If you know what to do, and can do it, maybe not. But for me, some type of ERS is a necessity. AAA let me down in the past. CoachNet was a bad experience a few summers ago. Now I have GoodSam. Called then once, the response was OK. So I'll keep them...for now.

RE: Extended Warranties

I too would contact wholesalewarranties.com. They are agents and offer a bag of options. Very helpful people who also enjoy the RV lifestyle.

RE: carrying an unmounted spare tire

I have very low expectations for any roadside assistance. I carry an unmounted spare, so I would hope that the truck sent would have the equipment to mount the rubber to the rim. If not, I would need a tow to the nearest major town. Then I will have to sit around a few days while a new 22.5 tire is shipped. This will indeed be expensive. In short, I only anticipate roadside help to get me to a safe repair location for more help...probably at my expense. The problem with a blowout is that the damage can be much more extensive than just the tire. Wheel wells, cables, electrical, and siding can all be damaged. If it is a front tire, dropping to the pavement can damage the wheel. I've been assisted by roadside assistance a few time. Always courteous, and careful, no complaints, but all you get is emergency assistance. JMHO

RE: The service must just get really better the second year?

"Emergency" roadside assistance, regardless of the provider, is best when it is not needed at all. Just the fact that you needed it, whether the service was great or horrible, still means you needed it. Happy Trails.

RE: cops stopping you

Without reasonable cause there is little chance of being stopped . As for a search...I am a law abiding citizen, and the law says you need a warrant. So no. JMHO

RE: Scam drawing allowed in Camping world stores-Marcus??

I agree, it is marketing not a scam. Just the same, I hope that it was disclosed on the entry card that your name and number could be (would be) used for marketing purposes. The same type of deal is offered at the entrance of every RV show I have attended, and in many malls "you can win a car". I just don't don't sign up for any of these offers...sadly, I have probably missed out on free nights of camping, a new car, and a million dollars. But that's just luck. Happy Trails.

RE: Spare tire class A motorhome

Even older, by current standards, larger motorhomes do not come with a spare. Most people could not change a 22.5 tire and it could be considered dangerous to even try. Therefore, no tire, no jack. I'm sure the savings in manufacturing and the reduction in weight had nothing to do with the decision. Anyway, when we were taking a Track tour to Mexico I put a used but usable unmounted spare in the underbelly. I then switched it out when I put new tires on the MH with the best of the previous tires. It is out-dated (expired), whatever the proper definition is, and if I had a major tire malfunction in a populated area I would certainly opt to purchase a NEW tire. But, if on vacation, I have the option of having this tire mounted by roadside service and use it until I reach civilization. But in answer to your question, no spare is offered with new larger motorhomes.

RE: Ready Brute

I had a tech drill through the firewall. It was too tight a location for this old body to work upon. The Saturn is similarly compressed like the Honda, on both sides of the firewall, so I left the job to someone with experience. Other than drill placement, the instillation was rather simple.

Norcold issue again, this is getting old

Getting ready for a nice vacation, an FMCA rally and then a week with grandkids traveling through the West. I went out to put some more stuff in the Norcold 1200 frig and the green light was off. It appears the "wart" fix for the recall probably tripped. My mobile mechanic came out an reset the box, so we are ready to go. But really, this is the best fix Norcold could come up with for their high end unit. Sure, I've thought about going all electric, even looked at new rigs with household refrigerators. But I like my RV, and just the thought of replacing 6 or 8 deep cell batteries at the same time gives me the same shivers I get when I have to replace all 6 22.5 tires. Anyway, this is just my Rant for the day. Happy Trails to all.

RE: Not given site reserved

When we reserved a specific site at a beach campground in San Diego we paid extra for a specific site, months in advance. We were called later and ASKED if it would be ok to move our site and a new specific site was offered. It was explained at the time that a group wished to be together. We were also offered a reduction in our rate for our inconvenience. We accepted. This is probably how it should have been handled. Since you wish to return to the park, I would voice my displeasure to the park managers/owners, so they understand for future reservations you have expectations. JMHO
