RE: Air flow for residential fridge

From an old appliance repairman. Read the paper work that comes with the fridge. They all need air flow not only for the coils to keep from over heating but also on some makes the circuit boards. You also need to be able to clean the coils yearly with a brush either the under the bottom coils or back! Also access to the drip pan in the bottom to clean yearly!

Confusing over the stuff a bag Sept 12 & 13

Please someone use some common sense next time. I've never seen so many confused and down right mad people. The rules might have been written but to those at Camping World who came up with the stuff a bag you get an F on the way you managed it. First problem was having to renew again to get the discount just upset over half the people who were current. This did more harm to the clubs membership drive than good. Second what should have been very simple was made difficult because people "DO NOT read or like to read rules"! Most important and repeat most important give all members some kind of discount! Members should have got 5% just for there membership support being active. Then new, renews, life and elite members 10%. Non-members would get nothing! Simple works the best!!

RE: Blowout, bad and good luck

Just changed 11 year old Goodyears off the rear with 34,000 still solid tires and they had been inspected every year for the last 4 years. reason was the 7 years old on the front were starting to rivet. This time went with 6 load range H Hercules tires. Handling is improved and like the heavier tire. There is enough bad pavement and junk laying on our interstate to blow out hundreds of tires so it's not always the old age.

RE: How much hassle to hook up a car dolly?

About 10 minutes tops. I have a Karcaddy and it's light and easy to move. Do it all myself.

RE: 25 years ago at CW

Same with the Belleville, MI store. They are great group of people working there all ages and if they can't answer a question they know who to ask who can. They are in the process of putting new tires and shocks on my Motor Home this coming week. The biggest think I've seen in the store are customers have become rude and thing that RVs are just like cars and easy to fix which is far from the truth. The other thing is they have many general RV items in stock and not ever part. For a store to have that they would have to build a building acres in size.

RE: Benefits of purchasing RV from Camping World

We had a great experience with extra benefits other dealers can not give you. We have been very happy with not only our RV but service from Camping World.

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.
