RE: Who Are WE RV'ers Really?

Honestly, your posts come off as smug and condescending with a know-it-all attitude, and then you wonder why people respond the way they do. I shun all labels and consider us all RVers regardless of why we're RVing. Our commonality is found in the fact that, regardless of reason, we're using recreational vehicles. The overwhelming majority of my interactions with fellow RVers are positive because of that.I've read part of the threads started by the OP and totally agree about the smug and condescending attitude. Must have to do with his extensive abilities, information which he isn't too shy to share...frequently. Mostly without being asked. X2

RE: RV Parks You Love Then You Hate Them You Need Them

......It seems that you put a lot of thought into that. I think there are two kind of parks, the ones we might go back to and the ones we won't. X10! :C

RE: How to stop neighboring campers from

A couple of strategically placed lawn chairs and/or cooler usually deters the campsite crosser's.

RE: SUV tow vehicle

I am thinking about a 2017 GMC Yukon XL Denali it has a 6.2l V-8 with a tow capacity of 8,200lbs. My travel trailer is just under 10,000lbs. What is the general consensus of the SUV pulling my camper? What happens if I was to do this combo? Will I have a real issue? NO

RE: Advise on used, lived in camper.

The first thing I would ask or if it is still parked where they lived in it is......""did they leave the black tank valve open during the time they lived in it""? If they 'did' leave the black tank valve open, there will be a mountain of poop in the black tank. Waste needs water to move. No water and it just sits in the bottom of the black tank. And in this case a full year of poop sitting on the bottom of the tank. Correct way is to leave valve closed and let tank fill up and then dump as needed. You can leave the sewer hose attached to it but CLOSE the valve. Just saying check it out. Good luck I hope you find just the right RV for your needs! :C

RE: Broke down in Amarillo

thanks for the replies. Wheel bearing is what I was thinking too. I did not bring enough tools to do that type of job unfortunately. We called one mobile techs emergency number last night when we rolled in, Derrels repair, but they have not called back. I did find a workhorse chassis service center in town so I will head that way in the morning and see if they can get someone to come to the KOA or I will have to have it towed. Go to the KOA office and ask who they use for RV Mobile Repair first! Most repair shops will insist you tow it in. RV Mobile Repair will come out to your site at the KOA AND.....will be a WHOLE LOT less expensive. I have ALL my repairs and maintenance done by local RV Mobile Repair where ever I am parked. Good Luck

RE: RvParky and Cracker Barrel

......My daughter stayed in that one two nights ago & was happy with the 'accommodations'. On her way from visiting me to her launch point to Alaska. Hi avan! How's the new MH and being back on the road going? It's real good to see you decide to come back to RV'ing! Hope all is well with your new adventures, God Bless. :C

RE: Woodalls access is gone - Another Back Door???

This is a test to see if Open Office will let me cut/paste into a thread on RV.net Edit: Seems like it worked fine for me using Open Office for my word processor. I wonder if it could be something in your system. I am using Windows 10 and Firefox 52.0. You can use one of these alternate portals to the site. Trailer Life portal >>>> Good Sam Club portal >>>> Looks to me like the Woodalls site defaults to the Good Sam site now as maybe all the others also. Barney One thing that's REAL nice, and I like a lot, is this link above that you posted leads to a portal that does NOT have that dorky GS logo looming at you on it!! I'll be using this one from now on! :B

RE: To Slide or Not

One thing to look for if you don't want slides is what they call a "split bathroom". It opens up the coach like nobody's business!! I am always getting comments from fellow RV'ers and 'many' with big Class A's how much room my MH has. Most coaches that have the side bathroom, the bathroom is so small you can't move AND it creates a long dark hallway in the coach or in some a complete wall with the hallway on the side. Making the front of the coach enclosed and small even on a 40 footer!!. On the split bath there is a pocket door from the kitchen to bath and a folding door from bath to bedroom for privacy. When these 2 are open it really creates a big open feel from the front all the way to the back of the coach AND all the light that comes into it. Not to mention all the room in the bathroom area!! :)

RE: opportunity to purchase

I have the opportunity to purchase a wrecked and totaled popup real cheap.the wreck bent the frame at the tongue and the whole back side of the Coleman popup has been destroyed. you can see into the PU. RUN, don't walk away from this one! It will cost WAAAY more than $500 to fix it even if it could be fixed. AND, anything with a bent frame is nothing more than a piece of junk that can not be restored to correct and it needs to go to the junk yard. Which is the reason the insurance company totaled it. The owner got paid from the insurance company and you want to give him more money for his totaled RV.? I hope he is not your friend trying to put the screws to you! :W There are plenty of older used fixer uppers out there for sale that your money would be better spent on. Keep looking you will find one that fits your budget. :C

RE: To Slide or Not

IMHO Slides are highly over rated! You think you are gaining a whole nuther room, but in actuality all it does is push your couch or dinette out which gives nothing more than one or maybe two feet more 'aisle space' to the actual interior of your coach. If you do decide to buy one with slides be SURE to make the owner/dealership pull ALL the slides IN before you buy. The first thing the salesman will tell you is there is no battery installed so he can not bring the slides in. Yup, he does NOT want to bring the slides in because you will see just how much it limits the use of the coach when they are in. I make them get a battery and pull the slides in or walk off the showroom floor to another dealers. You will find on many if not all, that when the slides are all in you have NO access to one or more of the following, the sink, bathroom or closet in the bedroom. When you are traveling or choose to stop to rest etc. You will not have access to most of the inside of the coach. If the DW gets cold while you are driving and wants to get a sweater out of the closet you will have a very unhappy DW because she won't be able to get to it. A bedroom slide when in eliminates your access to it when it is in. And, forget about getting a sandwich on the run made while on the road because you will most likely not be able to get to the sink and/or fridge. The more slides you order the less access you will have to the inside of your coach unless you deploy the slides. If you are a destination weekend RV'er this might not be a problem for you but if you full time, snowbird, or take long trips it will become inconvenient often. The C's have a weight issue to begin with adding the weight of the slides just adds to the problem. I've often wondered when they add a slide to just one side if they counter that weight to balance the coach? For these reasons I decided on a no slide MH. :C

RE: Lost My Running Lights

Here is where I found why my running lights weren't working. They run the wires under your coach and zip strip them to the frame member. And the exposed wires are tied real tight against the metal angle. :R They run them from side to side right by where the rear tires are. Check that first, on mine the wires were rubbed in half by the metal frame!! In other places the rubber wire coating rubbed off exposed wires up against the frame. :(

RE: Even a pardon won't allow you to cross anymore.

Which is why "I" don't RV anywhere out of the country. I was going to go to Mexico until I searched the forum for info and all the advice read like a spy trying to cross the border: "do not look them in the eye", "don't wear sun glasses", how to act, how not to act, how not to smile and on and on and on. Just so you don't have your RV gutted at the boarder? :R Nope, and that is also why I don't fly anymore. The whole airport security scene is like walking back in time to Germany.

RE: Windy conditions

If I am parked under a tree with low branches I move to the back of the CG or wherever there are no trees. And park head into the wind. AND Sadly all the stuff other stupid campers leave outside when high winds are predicted will cause more damage to you RV then anything else.:( Encourage your camping neighbors to put their outside stuff away if they haven't.

RE: Road service, but Good Sam Membership lapsed

IMHO I would not let them 'put them together'. they increase the prices each year for renewal independently on each membership. Putting them together is just an accident waiting to happen and to get them more money.

RE: Garage for Class A

I'll just ad my obligatory statement of what happened to me when I had a super garage built for my MH. Something you need to keep in mind so it doesn't happen to you. We measured the MH to the top of the ac unit. Measured and checked it twice and added for insurance. AND then told the contractor how tall of a door we needed. Only thing was no one checked with the contractor of the building. Foundation was built up and they added a concrete pad to the entrance. That small slope of the concrete pad leading to the garage was just enough to NOT allow my MH under the door on the approach. :( If you entry is completely flat your ok but if there is going to be any type of incline you have to account for that and make allowances when ordering the height of your door. Mr. Rock, What did you do to fix it?MM. Sadly nothing could be done. The math to extend the concrete pad leading to the barn to make it accessible for the MH to level out was not doable.

RE: Avoid quote marks when posting text on rv.net portal

After a series of tedious experiments, I have discovered that my posts were bouncing when I used quote marks in the text of my message. Perhaps it's: "what you put within the quotes" is the reason your posts are bouncing. Compliments of the admin!!!! :B
