RE: Really Nice Rack Handles At A Good Price

I must admit that my initial reaction to the title was WAY off base. :B

RE: Need Some Advice

And I maintain that there is no gift that screams "I didn't put any thought into this" more than a card.

RE: Roof vent to far away to reach.

Take the crank handle off Go to osh and buy a knob with the same size shaft hole Get a knobby one that is easy to grip Then get a piece of PVC pipe cut notches to fit the knob Easy peasy Even easier, see my post above. KISS :B

RE: Roof vent to far away to reach.

My wife uses a short length of 3/4" PVC pipe. It fits neatly over the crank handle knob and stores under the couch.

RE: Oh my...they live in a motorhome!

Conversely, we feel sorry for people stuck in one place for most of, and the rest of their lives.

RE: Need Some Advice

I must disagree with all of the gift/gas/whatever cards. Get them a small plant. I suggest a bonsai. Not only will it enhance their home on wheels, but they'll think of you when they enjoy it, for many moons down the road. As I type I can look to my right and enjoy a Golden Gate Ficus sitting atop my CPU, given to me by my wonderful wife as a 20th anniversary present.

RE: dumb question about RV ovens

Absolutely no reason not to leave the pilot on for the duration of it's potential use. Further, we've been fulltime RV'ing for over 15 years and we still use a checklist every time we arrive and depart. It helped us twice in the last year. Good for you! And even further, your question doesn't even come close to claiming the "dumbest" award. :) Welcome and happy camping.

You have WAY too much time on your hands.

RE: Has anything ever happened that wasn't the RV Park's fault

Two Germans who pee'd on one of my hotel their room and left early for the airport...the entire room had to be repainted...they didnt bother to clean a thing. Another pair of Russians who continually tried to bring in Prostitutes (male) despite my warnings not to. they were asked to leave at 2AM. A great deal of ethnicity going on here. Problem?

RE: Amazed and Disgusted

I think a close reading of those posts by those that don't like dogs shows one thing very clearly...they are afraid of them. Now this could be a childhood thing and is to be pitied. But it seems that most of those posts have some underlying, unspoken agenda that is not being stated. It's hard for a grown man to admit he's scared of a Chihuahua. I hope that this post wasn't serious. Fear of dogs? I love dogs and in my earlier years raised them. I still don't want them crapping in my space!

RE: Has anything ever happened that wasn't the RV Park's fault

I know he is the south end of a north bound mule and I won't take a reservation from him anyway. With you all the way. There simply are people who are complete jerks, no matter what. I've said it before, and I'll continue to say it: If I run an honest and caring establishment, if you don't like the way I do business, I don't need yours. Buh bye!

RE: What RV insurance company?

Could not agree more with the above re: Progressive. Been with them for 14 years. 1 claim for a damaged awning. They paid in 2 days, no questions asked. We have everything insured with them.

RE: Refrigerator minimum voltage when dry camping

10.5 volts to a battery is the same thing as your body trying to function on three quarts of blood. But if I make up the other quart with tequila?:D

RE: Has anything ever happened that wasn't the RV Park's fault

A good business never assumes their equipment or staff is infallible Good on you! I've been able to do short bursts, but year after year? No way do I have that sort of patience. "A good business never assumes their equipment or staff is infallible". Agree to a point, but as the OP here you recognize that there are people who will not be soothed.

RE: Has anything ever happened that wasn't the RV Park's fault

Seems like every day someone says they cant get level, blame the site. Its a fine line to walk to show them with a level or even a frying pan with water that their auto leveler is out of calibration or the stick on bubble is. They always want to blame the site before doubting their unit they are proud of. Over our 15+ years fulltime, we have hosted 5 CG's and managed 2. I feel yer pain, bro! :D The one thing that I disagree with you about is the fine line. I do understand that owners need to claim and retain revenue. After a couple of venues, we learned to ask the right questions. Although not precise, one of them would have encompassed a scenario as you described above. If the answer was anything except, "We have provided the best service we are capable of. If that is not satisfactory to you, we will refund your night with us and we hope you find better accommodations elsewhere", and we would move on. Simple translation to the customer: You don't need us, we don't need you. Fortunately/unfortunately, (you make the call) a slightly over 92% decided to stay. Yeah, yeah; some of them didn't have anywhere else to go, but the other % decided to stay because they were dealt with honestly. Too little of that going around these days.:( Any owner who agreed to use that approach after we signed on experienced an average retention rate significantly and statistically higher than before attempting to placate the customer.

RE: Amazed and Disgusted

If you did, you would experience what the OP is saying and would probably be complaining too. If it does, then ignore the bad stuff. If it doesn't, time to move on. Complain all you want on here if it makes you feel better but remember it won't change anything. I must have suffered a stroke. I'm agreeing with Crowe! :B I'll say it again. No matter how you approach these boorish people; gently and kindly, or full tilt raging and all of the passive-aggressive nonsense in between (which BTW makes you no better than them), you are NEVER going to convince any of them that they aren't specially entitled, and they will modify their behavior only as long as you're looking, if at all. Been doing this RV thing fulltime for over 15 years. Even though you will encounter a percentage of inconsiderate people wherever you go, you can seriously eliminate most of them by not going where and when they go.

RE: Amazed and Disgusted

Guaranteed that this will turn into a typical rant here. It doesn't matter whether it's about dogs (pooping, barking, etc) loud children, loud music, bright lights, golf carts, idling diesels, and the list goes on and on. There is only ONE reason for these never ending complaints. It's all about people who have absolutely no concern for anyone but themselves. It really is that simple, and you are NEVER going to convince those few that they aren't special.

RE: Tell Me I am Crazy... Or Not...

My wife and I have been fulltiming a little over 15 years, so you won't hear any negatives from us. I would echo 2 comments made by others here: 1) It is extremely important that and your wife be best friends. 2) Buy a rig that has been gently used and 2-3 years old. You'll save a bundle and if things don't work out, turning it around for close to what you paid for it should be doable. Best of luck.

RE: Trailer lights on while camping, what gives?

They are starved for attention and are signaling you to "Look at me, look at me" This is all that it is about.

RE: Quietest A/C

To answer your original question without making value judgments, we have owned 3 of the 4 you listed and the Coleman (@ 15K) was by far the quietest.
