RE: Is Warranty Forever a good deal?

Although a few people come out ahead with an extended warranty, mathematically it is a losing proposition. Will the annual cost always be guaranteed at $350 or will it rise? Factor in the cost of the annual inspection and all the nit-pick things they will require you to allow them to fix in order to keep the warranty. It sounds like a great deal for the people selling the "warranty forever". It's a great profit center. Between the yearly costs, the deductible, the exclusions, etc it's hard for them not to make money.

RE: Is Warranty Forever a good deal?

I just bought a new jayco jayflight, the dealer explained the forever warranty which has to be done yearly at a cost of 350.00 or more which covers most things as long as I have the yearly inspection done. Do any of you have this warranty and is it worth the money? Just earlier this week I saw (another forum) someone paying $200/year for that....

RE: Recommendations for small 5th wheel

Our Arctic Fox 27-5L is short (28') but not light. It grosses over 12K lbs and the newer wide-body models are even heavier. Just to be clear, there are three versions of the 27-5L Current 27-5L's are longer (1 foot) and wider (6 inches). They also have the bedroom slide on the drivers side. Yours has that slide on the other side The even older version didn't have a bedroom slide.

RE: Recommendations for small 5th wheel

My folks have a 25' Nash. There was an Arctic Fox version of it too - 24-5N or something like that. It's older, though - 1999 or 2000 I think. It's been a good trailer for them and they're the original owners. I don't think Northwood makes anything much under 30' these days. You might still check it out, though, as they have a great reputation and 30' is pretty reasonable to pull around. I had one also, the last year they made them model was 2012. They used to make a 19, 21, 23, 25 and 26 foot models also

RE: Monument Valley and Redwood Forest in April

In Monument Valley your only real camping choice is Goulding's RV. . But lots of dry camping within 40 miles The tribe has a no-services campground very near the "action" area. But they also have banned "flat-spotting" by non-tribal members in the rest of the reservation. Of course there is Gooseneck SP, plus lots of BLM land outside the reservation area.

RE: Digital over the air tv.

Height is Might (for antennas) An antenna 2 ft above the roof will usually out perform a similar antenna mounted 6 inches above the roof.

RE: Does costco give discount off of posted fuel price.

Answer is yes and no. No, you pay the posted price. However if you use your costco credit card you will get a 3 percent credit on fuel purchases as part of the annual credit you get on costco purchases. My current running estimate is that the 3 percent alone is going to pay for my CostCo membership

RE: Does costco give discount off of posted fuel price.

Our Costco does have diesel. The Costco fuel stations open hours earlier than the warehouse store. Get there at 8:00 AM and drive right up to your pump. Life is good if you are willing to get up and at em. I chatted with a mid-level manager about CostCo''s fuel plans The plan to upgrade every fuel station, where feasible, to diesel over the next few years Part of why they moved their Bellingham location (but why they didn't put signs up at the old location telling us "out of towners" where to move...)

RE: Does costco give discount off of posted fuel price.

Funny you should say that about adding something... My neighbor always uses their gas and has had intermittent engine roughness and stalling problems for a couple of years. Mechanic finally figured out it was water in his gas and "claimed" that Cosco has a problem with this. We too, use Cosco premium in our Challenger SRT which sometimes idles rough for no apparent reason. ..... So we're done with Cosco gas - at least form the one in Woodenville Wa. I can tell you with certainty that you have bought gas at your local CostCo that came from the same refinery as gas you bought from Chevron. Both contract out to one of the same four local refineries.

RE: Does costco give discount off of posted fuel price.

... On a much more Macro Economic note, what also is bound to happen is once the number of alternative fuel vehicles become more than a mere blip on the radar, there is going to be a federal excise tax associated with them to go to the road and bridge funds. States will also follow suit with the same sort of taxes. .... Montana had such a law when I lived there 35+ years ago, unless they pulled it since. You paid an extra yearly tax when you licensed the vehicle, and my-oh-my was it stiff But then you didn't pay a fuel tax on your propane/etc

RE: Two new natl monuments: how to give planning input?

As far as I know, there has to be public input. I have attended several USFS planning meetings over the years. They have usually been announced on the forest's web page or via social media. .... There has been nearly 6 years of meetings, public hearings, etc already There will be a lot more on final use. But reading the background (mostly Utah media) the only major change planned is no new mining or oil drilling, the remainder of uses will stay the same. Interestingly, apparently the Commissioners of San Juan County refused to hold any county meeting on this issue and refused to attend State or Federal meetings. They are now trying to claim this should be stopped as they weren't involved in the process.

RE: XM Satellite Radio Cutting in and Out

I'd cancel, except we are during the free-trial Not impressed, not with the programing but everything else 10 days into the free trial the radio (1-Dec) the radio stopped receiving anything but "Channel 1" and that to receive anything else I need to active the radio. I try to log into the account, and they claim that I don't have the right password. So I have them send an e-mail to reset the password and they claim there is no account at the address they are sending the promotional ads to.

RE: Heater issue-Update

Also might be the control board, but I would start with the heat(flame) sensor

RE: Route to Olympic peninsula

Obviously I live around the location. You've had some good advise, it all depends on what your want. I often prefer the ferry from Port Townsend to WI, it's a short ride and avoids the traffic issues from Everett to Tacoma. If you take this route, get reservations (period). If you arrive early, and there is room, they will load you on an early ferry.

RE: Route to Olympic peninsula

Drive right around the bend and up the 101. Nice road. We really enjoyed Rest-A-While RV park on the 101, just south of Port Angeles and Squim. It is not much to look at, more of a paved full hookup, but the view, with your front window up against the Hood River Canal is magnificent. Happy Trails. US101 from Shelton up the west side of Hood Canal is very scenic, but not a route you can hurry on.

RE: Route to Olympic peninsula

Best way from Mt Vernon is WA 20 across to Whidbey Island and take the ferry to Port Townsend. For which reservations are strongly suggested, this route has small ferries and heavy volume. The ferries from Edmonds and Seattle do -not- accept reservations.

RE: Route to Olympic peninsula

Your only option other than a ferry ride is I5 south to Olympia. That means hours and miles of stop and go traffic thru Seattle. Ah, no. There is SR-16 from Tacoma, across the Narrows Bridge (recall Galloping Gerty, the old Narrows Bridge which blew down in a storm) then to Bremerton and up across the Hood Canal Bridge (which also is a replacement bridge for one that sank)

RE: V-10 problems

I doubt it's a "problem" then the engine. Your engine computer would be lighting the "check engine" light if there was. More likely it's an issue with the rear-end, as in the wrong ratio. Do you know what it is? With my ol trailer (about that weight) I had no problems with 60 mph on most grades. With the new (heavier) trailer (13,000) 60 can mean winding the engine to 4500 rpm (or higher)

RE: Fightin words, best transmission, 150/1500 series?

If you are talking "new", there may not be any difference between the GM and the Ford They jointly developed a truck transmission for this application.

RE: Honda has a new Generator.... EG2800i and EB2800i

I see Honda has a new generator. Check it out and comments please. http://www.toolreport.net/2016/10/04/honda-rolls-two-new-inverter-generators-eg2800ieb2800i/ "... and at only 61-69 decibels they are also pretty quiet." "Pretty quiet?" :h Yeah, right ... WAY too loud for use in any campground. :R Actually no they still meet NPS/NFS standards With your user name I would expect you to know that.
