RE: Introducing Dogs To TT

X2 I was parked next to a camper that brought their TT up the night before they were going to stay in it AND left their dog inside. :R That dog had all the shades ripped down in 10 minutes, almost broke down the sliding glass door, then started on the couch, AND barked ALL night. I felt sorry for the dog, his owners were just plumb ignorant. Just a note if you use airlines crates. Once you get past the 200 size crate the larger ones will not fit thru the door. You will have to take it apart and reassemble it inside.

RE: Four Winds Chateau 29E vs 2005 Coachmen 275

What type chassis and what size engine? Four Winds usually holds better resale value. But then again depends on what chassis and engine when comparing.

RE: Electrical Shock!!

You don't have to have a shorted wire to build up a charge on the camper. There can be enough capacitive coupling to build a considerable voltage on the camper. The current is very limited however so usually there is no harm done. However, there is always a chance that there is a shorted wire or some other problem creating the voltage on the camper, so you should always find the cause instead of just ignoring it.Mine was a bare wires touching the frame and each other. Don't know if ground broken or not. Fixed under warranty. Yup. There IS a spaghetti mess of wires run under these RV's right from the factory. I spent countless hours and actually paid for service calls to figure out why my running light didn't work. One day when I was on the ground putting leveler blocks under the back tires I noticed a wire hanging low. Come to find out they run those wires from side to side wrapped across on the frame. And what a sloppy pp job of doing it. :R

RE: What the #@!! happened??

Open your GFI box asap. I took a hit and reset the gfi and all was fine. Thought I was good to go. Then a couple of days later I kept getting a faint wif of burning wires. Narrowed it down to the bathroom sink area where the GFI just happens to be. Here is what was inside behind that switch plate........:( http://i46.tinypic.com/33blqu8.jpg http://i50.tinypic.com/124ya0o.jpg Just glad I caught it before something more serious happened.

RE: Introducing Dogs To TT

X2 on the crates. I strongly suggest that you do some driveway camping with them 'before' you head out. They need to know that this new building you call an RV is going to fun. And not some strange place you are going to throw them in and leave. Bring them out and actually sleep in it with them at night. The next day leave them and go outside for a bit, talking to them so they know you are near. And then expand that time little by little. This will also let you know at 'home' whether they are going to be barkers when you leave the TT. And you can correct that in the confines of your driveway not the CG. Trust me the extra time taken at home in the driveway acclimating your pets to the RV will be well WORTH the effort when you get to your first CG. If only every one did that it.

RE: Electrical Shock!!

Its always the ground. Check the ground then when you finish checking the ground check the ground again..I disagree. Mine was not a bad ground. Long story.I have felt a slight shock from my MH several times at my storage yard. The MH is not plugged in at the time and happens regardless of the position of the battery disconnect switch. After researching this I found it's the over-head power lines, there are a lot of them and you can hear them buzzing. That's still a bad ground. :hI didn't comment on whether the ground was bad or not, only that the power source was a little unique. You're right. Sorry about that. (but still, no ground is a bad ground. :B ) Those aren't power lines, those are 'transmission' lines. They are supposed to ground them every 1/4 mile but trust me once they are up they do NOT because no one ever bothers to check to make sure they did.:( And that is called stray voltage the nature of the beast. Enough to kill a dog and enough to shock a full grown cow enough to prevent milking. If you live under these I suggest you learn more about them......I sold my life long dream home because they went up next to it.:W

RE: Yellow stains from suction cups shower walls

Be careful with that cleaner from the dollar store. I bought it in a spray bottle. Come to find out 'after' I applied it that the bottle was a CONCENTRATE. Had to run and wash it off to prevent etching. Who the heck puts a concentrate in a spray bottle?

RE: Electric Broom

To the forum members who asked politely what brand here it is: Eureka Rally II. I found it at Walmart but can be purchased elsewhere.

RE: Camping World in General

.... I see Camping World as the Walmart of RV supply and RV sales. Big selection and not a whole lot of expertise. There is a place for such a company, as their results show, but it probably isn't for everyone and they probably aren't going to change what works to potentially appease a few nay-sayers. X2 Well said. Guess it is what it is.

RE: Does Car Leasing make sense?

6 months of a new car sitting in Florida while you are up North a lot of money. 6 car payments. Add insurance and registration. That's a lot of money spent on something you are not using just to have a car to go to the store in for a couple of months while you are there. If you have a personal car at home you can have it driven down here. There are tons of ads for people who drive cars back and forth just for the RV'ers. The cost of doing that versus new car payments would save you a lot of money. U-Haul has contractors that move trailers, personal cars etc for people. Give them a call that might be the answer for you. PM me I have BC card for them. They helped me move stuff down here.

RE: Camping World in General

...I say let's all work positively to make the company and services better and to help Marcus c.... It is NOT my responsibility to make a company I shop at better. :R It is THEIR responsibility to run a company in a manner that attracts and 'keeps' customers coming back. What are they paying you to be a shill? Or was that $150 coupon enough? 10 posts, 9 about CW https://forums.woodalls.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/search/parms/sw%7B%7D|km%7B%7D|kl%7B%7D|fm%7B%7D|pd%7B365%7D|ma%7Bscivilla%7D/sr/1.cfm What did you do to be their friend after you posted this? ""I will tell you what the main problem here is--the store manager Mark. He is arrogant, lacks customer focus and appears to allow employees to do what they want. WE just left there after a three-day service experience. I also had a $150 coupon from Camping World Fayettville that was restricted to use in that store. The manager there asked the Chattanooga manager to honor it. When I went to see him he barely acknowledged my presence and seemed to be bothered or annoyed that he was asked to serve another store's customer. While there we visited the store many times and stayed in the campground. Every time we went in the store the cashier spent most of her time texting and we even observed her doing this while a customer waited to check out--making the customer stand there and wait. There was also another sales representative at the front doing promo work and she was also constantly texting. I was looking for a tpms system and none were on the shelf. I finally found one of the sale associated on the floor and asked her. She said they were normally stocked on a certain aisle but alas there were none. So I asked her to look in the back and sure enough there was one left in the store. I didn't like the brand so didn't get it but I observed that neither she or anyone stocked the shelf with that system during our whole stay. I found the staff in the store to be totally lacking in customer service attitude and focus and since the store manager is in that building you can put the blame squarely on his shoulders.I have the say the service staff and facility was great.""

RE: Bath room lighting

Just walk down the aisle of any big box store like Lowes etc. There are a plethora of battery operated stick up lights. They've come a long way with these stick up lights. Some of the led ones will blind you in a small bathroom! :B

RE: 7" GPS Mounting Locations

We have a 7" that we use with the bean bag mount. The suction cup works for awhile then falls off the windshield, we threw it away. The bean bag mount either sits on the dash or we place it on the engine cover, it works well in both places. X10! The bean bag mount is the only way to go! :C http://i46.tinypic.com/e625va.jpg http://i48.tinypic.com/13zamx0.jpg The best thing about this is I can just grab the whole thing and move it from my MH to the Toad or even a friends car. Also with just a push of the finger you can move the bean bag during daytime driving to avoid the sun's glare on the gps as you go.

RE: Camping World in General

SORRY........ I just can't get on board. Having traveled all across the USA I have found CW in-store Customer Service lacking. If it was just one location....but it was ALL the ones I stopped in. No greeting, no one asking if you need help, groups of employees standing around yaking/hoping not to make eye-contact and then when you finally got ones attention......'I don't know' SORRY......... I'm am an ex-customer. Not my job as customer to change management/employee mind set. I did my part..showed up with $$$. And ended up leaving with my $$$ X10 I full time so I am traveling across a lot of states and have been at many CW's. Yup, I tried several before I realized they were all the same and as mention above, I too walked out without buying anything. Heck most of the stores even if you did want to buy something there is 'never' a clerk at the cashier station. I found this to be at all the stores I stopped at.:( When I find that ALL of them have the same lack of customer appreciation AND coupled with the complaints posted here......one HAS to come to the conclusion that CW has serious employee and customer service problems. What's interesting is how the SAME problem can be at ALL the stores?:h It's almost as if corporate TRAINED them to act in that manner.

RE: Yellow stains from suction cups shower walls

Bleach and baking soda. Mix to make a smooth paste. That mixture will take any stain off.

RE: Does Car Leasing make sense?

.....We are finding that a $5,000 used car is not a very desirable car. Usually older and very high mileage. And Florida sun does a job on them. Now maybe for $10K (+) we can find something. But not sure ownership is best for us...... And that is EXACTLY what is going to happen to the car you purchase to leave in Florida during the summer months! Unless you have a garage to put this car in for the summer it WILL succumb to all what the hot, humid summer weather in Florida provides. Especially when it will be left all locked up for those months. Add mice, roaches, pollen, the dreaded green mold, etc that gets into cars down here to that mix and anything new you buy or lease will loose its value in no time! I am from Wisconsin and I can leave a car unattended for months to years and it will never sustain the damage that Florida can dish out in one summer month! :B Unless you have the need to impress I would vote for buying an inexpensive used vehicle to leave behind. I'm here in Florida right now and IMHO $5,000 CAN net you a nice vehicle to drive around for the few winter months you snowbirding. Just saying. :C

RE: hot water dispenser

Not to mention the more serious problem of the thermostat going on the blink which will cause it to trip the relief valve and leak down the side. Mine did just that and the whole side of the MH got so hot you couldn't touch it.

RE: Electrical Shock!!

Start here with this. You have an open ground somewhere AND you or a family member will become the ground. Fix asap. http://i51.tinypic.com/2co084p.jpg I plug this in 'first' to the shore station before I plug my RV in. You'd would be amazed just how many CG shore stations have an open ground.:R

RE: Electric Broom

Need recommendations for a lightweight, inexpensive electric broom. Don't mind if it uses bags, but if not, need one that is easy to empty without spilling the contents all over the place! As much as I wanted a small compact electric broom for the MH.....everyone I bought did absolutely, zip, zero, squat in picking up dirt off the floor. After wasting a ton of $$$ on the stick brooms, I finally found a vacumm that is lightweight, small enough for an RV and actually WORKS! http://i60.tinypic.com/s2sn0z.png Just a tip when you are looking to buy one. They can say THE most powerful on the front of the box BUT you have to look for the amps the vacuum puts out. Amps provide the power to actually pick up the dirt. I found out real quick that 'many' do NOT put the amps on the outside of the box so you can compare products..:R I actually called the walmart manager down and said I was going to open the boxes right in the aisle to see what the 'amps' where of the product before I bought it. He agreed and knew that they didn't put it on the outside for just that reason. I was VERY shocked that the ones you are lead to believe are the most powerful? Had the lowest amps of all of them!
