RE: Questions about new Ram w/ diesel

What ever you do don't buy from that dealer,guess who looks after your truck.

RE: Shop Labor Rate. Survey.

Well to be very blunt,NO. It should not cost $190.00 per hour to fix most of these less then top quality RV'S put together by ???? $ 20.00 factory workers.No offence to either group, but frankly there is so much glitzy junk out there it is depressing.

RE: New engine behavior rhythmic ocsillation while accelerating

Pretty sure a dealer would be the route to go.

RE: bringing food into the U.S.A.

Don't take any buy it after you cross.Support the local economy and save a ton of money,no border problems either.

RE: More issues with my Rockwood

The popping noise very likely was from over filling the tank or a blocked vent pipe/over flow outlet,high pressure not allowing air to escape as quick as fill?What relationship do the bumper bracket and stabilizer leg have,as in attachment location to frame.Did fw tank brace twist frame components when it failed,as it surely did,when tank cracked.So after you noticed you had a problem you camped for 4 days,probably bending more frame and components that were bent or over stressed.Who knows except you what happened and how,good luck fixing it. Did you notice a problem with the door when you heard the original popping etc.doesn't sound like it all occurred at the same time,traveling with the damaged full water tank likely created more damage and the load on the bumper,didn't help the matter.Fix it and get something more substantial.

RE: Is anyplace in Arizona warm in winter?

And the wind rarely blows for more than a week at a time. Then a few nice days and the wind returns.IMHO this information is totally inaccurate. It shows the posters lack of experience and/or knowledge of the area. This poster is absolutely correct! The previous poster is ....!? That is so true it rarely blows for a week,usually longer,we quit going there got tired of all the dust and putting awning in and out due to wind warnings.We just couldn't get used to all the brown,hills, fields,etc.We love the lakes and ocean too much I guess.We teed off to frost many mornings in the breakfast leaque.

RE: What do I look and listen for when buying a 6.7 F350 Diesel

Didn't you just buy a 25' trailer?Sure you need an expensive well well used diesel 350,just asking?I have the impression you are fairly new to the bottomless $ pit hobby of rv'ing that we subscribe too..Have fun.

RE: Run Gas AND Electric?

Been available feature for years,go back and get service managers reasons for saying no.In fact there is no reason to have either on at all times unless you need hot water 24 hours a day.The water heater will still be very warm in the morning after being turned off for the night.It takes less time to recover to hot in the morning then you think,just use some energy management common sense.Have you never parked next to someone who runs their poorly adjusted water heater and it sounds like a jet next door.It usually is shutter control settings easily adjusted as per manual.

RE: Negotiating Used Trailer

There are no secret formulas,if there were the dealers probably started them as sales tools.Just remember to include everything like dollar exchange,entry fees,tax,past use like oil field housing etc. There is many of those around in Saskatchewan,the Dakotas,Montana and Alberta.They have had some tough winters and conditions.No matter what the price some one will have paid less and like me you feel better if you assume you paid too much.Nada, MSRP are useless in the real world of RV's.Have fun,then start the travel medical insurance dance.lol.Oh have you bought your one ton dually diesel already.

RE: Vancouver Ferry Rates

Think it only applies to B.C. seniors.

RE: Dealer came through....

Not to rain on anyones parade but I think his cost will be his make some money rates,as they should be.It's just the term"at his cost" I chuckle at.I am glad you at least have a dealer that will do the work. No No, not his cost as wholesale cost. He is covering the cost of it all....we are paying nothing. Not for parts or service. That sounds like a great dealer,good for you.

RE: need help with truck ratings

I have a friend that is a traffic officer in British Columbia and they will pretty much stop any truck camper set up that is a 1500,F150 for weight checks.The incident of accidents for truck over loading is very high and they are very serious about it.You will not drive away only with a ticket but pay to have it hauled.So don't go out that way unless you are within your trucks stickers.

RE: Can you believe this...DISGUSTING

Well I suppose he could have put his white hose away when he was gone and locked the rv so no one could look inside,what a thought.Francesca is the winner.

RE: Used class C purchase. some cosmetic issues

My concern would be if this is how the unit was looked after what don't you see?Mechanical,servicing,I would move on for sure,I don't think you are very realistic with you cost estimates,big surprises come in the shape of RV'S.

RE: Number 1 Question new rvers have?

I got 30% off MSRP did I get a good deal? My tow vehicle won't pull my new Rv dealer said it would. Should I buy the $4000.00 extended service contract? What can I take across the border? Why do I need a diesel 1 ton dual wheel.

RE: Can you believe this...DISGUSTING

Who actually wrote the review?Is it a copy of someone else or a quote from the person who actually stayed there.It took a month to decide it wasn't a place to stay.I really am not clear at all.

RE: need help with truck ratings

Is your intent to haul a truck camper,or pull something?
