Parts of Detroit under water

Stay clear of the Detroit area for a couple of days. Large parts of the Interstate and a lot of the secondary roads closed due to severe flooding yesterday. Coming from Canada or going go to the Blue Water Bridge using I-69 and US-23 to bypass Detroit. Some areas were parking lots last night with vehicle stalled out.

RE: Residential Refr in Class A MH -won't cool - help!

No warranty after 90 days so be prepared to pay labor!!!Did you ask if they honored the extended warranty or better yet call and find out if they cover the fridge. Sounds like either control circuit board or compressor which both are expensive if the extend warranty does not cover. You may also have to pay for 2 techs if they have to pull the fridge out. Keep us posted there are many people who would like to know how this goes.

RE: repainting my gel coat skin

Unless you have experience in painting an RV I would attempt it. The RV needs the decals removed, sanded, primed, painted, and at least 2 coats of clear to look right and last.

RE: Turn off auto defrost?

There is no way. The defrost is controlled by the circuit board and is an internal part. Just don't open the doors as much. The defrost is set to either go every 8 or 12 hours of compressor run time so not that often.

RE: CW crashed my camper

I see all the Camping World bashers are out in force this morning. This happen all the time in parking lots across the country and CW is just like any other parking lot in the country. They are not responsible for damage just like everyone else. If they had an employee do it they would own up to it. I've seen several RV hit in the CW in Belleville, MI and watched some real stupid people towing in the parking lot. As far as warranty you're going to find problems with any RV you buy. Manufactures don't care what's wrong just get it out the door and let the dealer worry about it. People need to start bashing the manufactures not the dealers for the lousy workmanship. Blame the right people starting with the fool who took off or more than likely didn't even know they hit your trailer and the manufacture. Also while I'm on the soap box if you can't go in a store and be pleasant to the workers stay home. Talking loud and expecting a discount when you're not entitled to one makes you look stupid and by the way WalMart doesn't have greeters any more either. Another thing don't expect any RV store or dealer to have ever part you need for your RV. It would taken a warehouse the size of about 6 WalMart stores to store just one manufacture parts!!!

RE: CW in Las Vegas only sells GY tires but not warranty them

How many times you going to complain about your tires and service this is the second time today. One time is enough. We get it your not happy about what happened but it's an RV and not a car.

RE: Keystone president,CEO

Thor now owns Keystone so good luck! There was a lot of paint problems with Keystone but if it's the decal then you're going to be pretty much out of luck.

RE: Pros/Cons to Active Duty Military RV life

Did it for over 3/4 of my Air force career. The RVs were home between PCS moves and moving into base housing. Stored on base and used for family vacations while assigned to base. Lived in a 26' Winnebago for 6 months by myself while wife and kids set up retire house. Right now full timing in 36' motor home. Wife passed away a little over a month ago and I have no plans to stop full timing, it was our dream of freedom on the road.

RE: Slide outs. Any typical construction drawings out there

Unless you have access to a forklift or overhead crane leave it to a shop equipped to handle that kind of work. You'll find the slide needs to be removed to replace the support wood. I watch a shop put a small slide back in after repairs and it was a forklift and 3 men to get it lined up, guided in and secured.

RE: No Power to refridgerator

If it's a Norcold it's the over temperature light. Need to take it in and have it inspected by a dealer.

RE: What tire mfg. is best at sidewall crack prevention?

The best way to prevent tire from cracking is to cover them when ever your going to be parked for extend time!

RE: Any downside to a domestic refrigerator?

Only real draw back from being 25 in the Appliance repair business is getting service. In most cases it will cost double to triple what you would pay for a service repair in a stick and brick home. Mainly because of access. Live span on most home refrigerator has drop from an average 18 years with 3 service calls back in the 90s to 7-8 years today with 2 service calls. Another myth is the house refrigerator does not need to be level to operate, read the manual that comes with a household fridge. They do need to be as level as possible for proper operation since defrost water goes into a small pan under the unit. The biggest problem is refrigerators today use mostly circuit boards and this is the most common and one of the most expensive items other than the compressor to fail. Either one will fail prematurely from low voltage. The use of a household refrigerator is an owner decision since there are advantage to both types used in the RV industry.

RE: Does Campingworld scew customers that don't buy?

Camping World in Belleville Michigan does appointments all the time. Right now they are booked up at least 2-3 weeks in advance. They tell the customers that they can wait for there appointment date or leave the rig and if an opening comes up they will work it in. They also try to work in those emergencies that happen to people on the road. I've seen them go out of there way to help RVers. On the Collision side it's usually a drop it off cause the insurance company has to look at and then give the Okay for repairs, parts order with sometimes months for parts to be received, and then work can start. It doesn't matter if you're a Good Sam member or not everyone is treated the same!!!!!!!

RE: Camping world lying? Outrageous response Las vegas

You didn't say what was wrong with the tires that they need to be replaced under warranty. It's not the first time I've heard that a manufacture wants the tires for inspection before replacing. I agree with that not just Camping World but all service centers should give you an appointment time for the warranty work but then again if they have to order parts it may end up sitting there for a while.

RE: Power Cord/Extension Cord Melted Together

Cut the ends off and replace them which is a lot cheaper than new cords. If you haven't pick up a voltage meter. They melted from either low voltage, or bad connection but my bets on low voltage.
