RE: 2017 Ford Superduty Beds

Here's a video on the Chevy commercial where the maker of the video explains why he feels the commercial was deceptive. More some since the reports I've seen GM is going the aluminum beds also.

RE: First time buyer - how bad is water damage

If I coukd sum it up in one word, it would be DON'T! Thus speaking one of the people (besides me) that has tackled such a project

RE: Looks like an old name in RVs might be coming back

From the article, this is a business that bought the rights to the name. I'd be skeptical that they plan to build the quality the old ones were made to. We've seen quality brand after quality brand fold the last few years, because people aren't willing to pay the costs to buy quality.

RE: I Am Thinking of Montana as My Next Adventure

I lived there for many years, there are so many things. What interests do you have?

RE: 5th Wheel Frames

About three years ago Lippert made big deal about how now all their frame welders were certified and all welds were inspected. Of course that implies before, they weren't. Since that time the number of complaints about new rigs having frame failures has seriously decreased.

RE: What happened?

I can tell you a lot of what has happened: M-TV then FACEBOOK Many of the younger people really don't like a forum interface. Having been raise on the supershort types like messages, so many do not have an attention span that can manage following a thread with many entries that are longer than 140 characters. .... Matt Nailed it Changing fashion. I've been at the Internet thing longer them most of you, I was a member of GoodSam's "first" real forum, which was done by e-mail. "Back in the Day", the fashion was e-mail group, Newsgroups (remember them?) and IRC "rooms". I remember a couple IRC RV "rooms", and then there are the ol' newsgroups (which are still around, alt.rv and rec.outdoors.rv-travel). Then web-based forums took over (like this group) Today it's "social media" and "apps" I can tell you that some of the RV Facebook groups see more posts in a day then this group see's in a week, maybe a month. I just saw one on dogs that must be 60 posts this afternoon. Then there is the whole RV-PJs thing... For those that think it was the moderators or nasty attitudes, check out the RV groups on Facebook, makes this place look like a open and friendly group Internet fashions change, in a few years Facebook will be the new AOL or Yahoo.

RE: RV There Yet PJs

I've been laughing at the over reactions to the PJs by some.

RE: GPS with elevation function

My Garmin Dezl760LMT will show elevation. As does the RV760, since it's based on the Dezl The newer RV660 and RV770 add the upcoming road profile (grades)

RE: Comments re Ford F250 Platinum

Too bad this one is on the wrong side of the country...6.8L V10 gasser. What a sweet truck. 2008 F-250 Platinum Crew V10 Very similar to ours, the V10 is a great at everything, except passing gas-pumps.

RE: Propane Detector mystery

Detector may be type that indicates end of life - they're only good for 5yrs at most. Replace it. That's been my experience. That was my first thought.
n7bsn 06/23/17 11:19pm Class A Motorhomes

The newer Garmins also display the upcoming road profile (ie grade) and have traffic (in metro area's by FM radio) The last has been informative at least, once it offered me a reroute

RE: RV park recommendation-Seattle Washington

As noted, being on the "right" side of the sound means taking a ferry to get to Seattle Now, a ferry ride is not a bad thing... Eagle Tree might be better bet (right next door) I kinda like the State parks (except Illahee, too close to Bremerton), but they have no wifi, cable-tv, etc. if your goal is the region, stay across the water. If it's just Seattle, stay on the noisy side
n7bsn 06/20/17 01:52pm Family Camping

The reason is because FMCA membership numbers are dropping like a rock. If they don't bring in towables they are likely to end up shutting down in the not too far distant future. Numbers are not dropping like a rock. Actually there is an increase in membership. .. It all depends on what date you compare from Pick the right date, and it's bad, or great. But long term, the membership is decreasing and increasing in age. A combination that is not going to be good. What I'm uncertain of is their cash-flow, if they aren't bringing in more then they are spending.....
n7bsn 06/15/17 01:10pm General RVing Issues

Don't see it happening. I think most of its members are 55 and older, i`m guessing the average age in the mid 60`s . the average RV trailer owner is in their 30`s and 40`s. 2 completely different groups. Per their own stats, 10 years ago it was 65, today the average age is 71. Increasing age is not a good demographic.
n7bsn 06/15/17 01:03pm General RVing Issues

I just spent a few minutes checking and it appears to have not been mentioned on this forum The FMCA is considering opening membership to all RV types. The discussion over on the FMCA forum is, interesting.

RE: Adding windows to fifth wheel - new Denali

I'd talk to the factory, there could be something in that wall only they know about.

RE: Artic Fox 29.5T 2018

They haven't built a 2018 yet. Maybe they are going to be the same as the 2017(which seem to be rather scarce)? I'll bet they have. I got my 2012 in early June of 2011

RE: Anderson Ultimate Connection - FAILED

Just saw another failure, but again not of the hitch This one is a failure of the rails, it appears the rails were not bolted to the frame, but rather only to the bed.

RE: Anderson Ultimate Connection - FAILED

I've seen photo's on one that failed (on Facebook) But the owner had installed himself and installed the king-pin adapter backwards. It was clearly an owner screw up
