RE: Florida's Busy

Yeah, the Nature Coast is my kind of coast. We are Rock Crusher residents for 4 months starting 12-1. I'm sorry that finding a longer-term stay in that area is so difficult for you. I didn't realize everything is so jammed. I heard that there was going to be some park expansion in the very near future just north of Crystal River. Possibly Nature Coast Landings RV Resort or maybe it's a different one up that way. Williston Crossings RV Resort northeast a ways from CR is supposed to be a nice park. Thanks for the nice response. We weren't planning on staying at RC, We have been there a few tines and it's beautiful! We were in the Crystal River area for a few days, then off to Brooksville, where we spent a few months. We spent a season in Williston, and it beautiful, and has lots of nice folks, but some real oddness. First, there can be an attitude in the office that is aggressively nasty, and was the result of one individual in management, who should be nowhere near other people, much less in customer service. Second, there is a strange, and questionable practice of "volunteers" putting in hundreds of hours of unpaid work. We watched men work like dogs on all kinds of improvement work, and basic park maintenance for zero compensation. They were bored, and had deluded themselves that it is for the good of the residents, and keeps costs down.

RE: Do you use your bathroom? If not, what do you use it for?

I had a guy stop at my motorhome and start a conversation about how much he like it. He then reveals that he and his wife are serious about buying a new one, just like it. I tell him this one was used, owned by the proverbial "little old man" who obsessively cared for it, and costs about 60% less than he was going to pay for a new one, so he might give that a thought................and then it happened. He got a bit of a odd look, and confessed that he never uses the toilet in his RV for anything (He had a nearly new Mercedes/Winnebago) and would never allow anybody else to use it either. He makes reservations for spots near the bath house, and uses public toilets on the road. He explained that when he buys a house, he needs to pull the toilets out and replace them, since he can't deal with a "used" one. He then told me that a used RV was simply out of the question, since...........well, it would have a used toilet, previously dirtied holding tanks, etc... It was an interesting conversation.

RE: Florida's Busy

Parrothead, We have the exact same experience. We first did Fl. in 2013. We hopped around the Nature Coast area, and even in Jan & Feb. had no issues finding places.The next two years of brutal winters in the northeast, and improvements in the economy, certainly changed the scene since then. Last year we stopped at Rock Crusher for a few days and asked how next year looked? They laughed and said, booked solid, with a waiting list too long to add names to. We checked that general area and looked at a few CGs at the request of friends who were curious about specific parks. Several places were dumps that I wouldn't of stayed at for free, but were booked for the next year, and were only taking long commitments, like 4-6 months.

RE: Going to Florida

Before retiring, we spent almost two decades heading from PA. to FL. for the Christmas holidays. We were not able to be flexible at all with our travel times, and always took 81-77-26-95, regardless of anticipated weather. During that time we had weather issues exactly once, and it was the hundred year storm that shut DC down for nearly a week, and dumped 30" of snow in the lower half of VA. If 77 is your desired route, check the weather, and do it. Blocking out months at a time, because 77 is somehow "unsuitable for travel" due to potential weather danger, as some suggest, is simply irrational.

RE: Found why water was leaking on the inside of the windshield.

I had a 2003 Super Duty that had the exact same issue. I took it to a glass shop and was told that it was close to impossible that a factory windshield would be leaking due to missing sealant. After a bit of searching, the tech. came out of the shop and said that there was a few inches above the mirror where there was a gap, that was actually missing sealant. Quick, easy fix, IIRC it was $35 to stop the leak.

RE: Live in Interesting times: Hyundai/ Kia want FCA

Might want to get involved with a bit of education VS. assumption in that department. I'm no big fan of Smart cars, but they are, in fact, extraordinarily safe for their size, due to some interesting design features. They have an unusual steel "Exoskeleton" and have shown crashworthiness well above their class. So I have a good friend who is a collision reconstructionist for our police department. He is part of the team that responds to all the fatal wrecks in our county. I've made your exact argument to him, and his response is as follows; The Smart car is (or was at the time) a 5 star rated vehicle. That means that when it is crashed against similar size and weight vehicles it comes out well. That's great news! Now comes the sobering reality... there are very few cars that are similar size and weight. At 1800 lbs, they simply don't have sufficient mass to absorb impact from a larger vehicle. They will get DESTROYED if hit by a typical half ton truck that weighs 3 times as much. Look at all the heavier SUV's, HD trucks, OTR trucks, delivery vans, etc on the road. Most vehicles on the road would cause serious damage to a Smart car. 5 Star ratings and cool exoskeletons are nice... but physics doesn't really care about that. Being "best in your class" doesn't mean much when you are the only one in your class. Being able to withstand cars twice your size is pretty good, but when you figure almost every car is twice your size and most are 3 to 4 times your size... that's not that great. Your buddy is engaging in a whole lot of talk with zero science to back it up. Check the crash test done with the late 50's giant Chevy sedan, and the modern version of the same vehicle. High speed frontal offset and a HUGE weight and size difference. The new car literally knives through the passenger compartment of the old barge and destroys the driver. The driver of the newer vehicle would of been slightly injured. Check the 70MPH remote controlled barrier crash with the Smart Car. Check the video of the Mexican Nissan Sentra, that no longer met our ever improving crash standards, decades ago, but the Mexicans just stopped building a few months back. See how it performs against the current US version of Nissan's small car. In a complete opposite observation from your buddy's opinion, I saw an early 70's GM cutlass convertible that was rear-ended to the point that the area from the bumper to the rear window was folded up like a whale tail. The doors were buckled and unopenable, and the thing burned to a crisp. The vehicle that struck it was largely intact, with uninjured occupants, and front doors that were opened. It was still rolling and steerable. That car was a Honda Element!!! Crash ratings are developed by actually crashing vehicles. Your entire post is based on supposition and opinion, quite the opposite of how testing, and real world scientifically based results are gathered.

RE: What should I have done?

Watched the exact same thing happen to a buddy of mine, while I followed his motorhome, as we were within sight of the border, exiting Wyoming. He was totally trapped, unable to move left, as there was three or four vehicles on his left side at the moment. I was clear, and got into the passing lane. The cop chased him down, and behaved like a total Aze-hole, since he needed to strut and prove that he was the man with the gun and badge. Once he calmed down enough, and my buddy continually and politely told him that it was physically impossible to get any further away, as he passed, the idiot wrote a warning. Sadly, sometimes you are just at the wrong place at the wrong time, and face the wrath of another sad example of an officer in this country. I can't count how many of these idiots end up with a car stopped, on the white line, with their patrol car parked tight behind the "suspect" on the line, lights flashing, and their butt 3' into the travel lane, as they lean in the window of the car. Total morons! Get the car you are stopping as far off the road as possible, place your patrol car as a crash barrier, and angle it to deflect a strike. If you have a bit of a clue, and training, a motorhome passing by, in the travel lanes, should have ZERO impact on your personal safety. Unfortunately, too many of these chucklenuts have zero concern for safety, and are only interested in putting on a show. Sounds like someone got their butt spanked by an officer at some point in time. You should be teaching these officers since they have no idea what they're doing. Literally haven't been ticketed for ANYTHING in the last 35 years. Your snark does little to improve the safety of the public, or the least trained, and/or intelligent of the LEO crowd. The difference between the professionals employed by our state police, and some of the idiots I have seen on the highway, is stunning. Unless you need to put on a show, or are too stupid to avoid a Darwin award, you don't perform a vehicle stop with your patrol vehicle, and the stopped vehicle, parked on the fog line, when there is plenty of shoulder to get yourself a full car width and more, away from the travel lane. You don't stand with your fat butt hanging in the lane, dressed in low- vis black, in your "wide stance" position, as you try to play the part of a half-wit deputy in a "Smoky and the Bandit" movie. Unfortunately, common sense is not something that can be taught, and repeatedly watching fools endanger themselves and others, makes it pretty clear that some departments fail to hire the best and brightest, or properly train some of the bottom dwellers they ended up with.

RE: Live in Interesting times: Hyundai/ Kia want FCA

Near Cabelas on US23, Exit 15 in Michigan of course, but it could have been farther north, closer to 96 I live here as well. I rarely see them. See more Mini Coopers than 500's, another car I find kind of pimple like. Guy down the road has a yellow Smart Car. Really tiny, really ugly. Really unsafe on the road. I don't do small cars well, you are fair game on the highway from everything because, everything is bigger than you and here in Michigan you and I both know that one, no one pays any attention to the speed limit, two, tailgating is a popular pastime, three, hardly anyone uses their turn signals (must be an option on cars in Michigan) and four, because it's a no fault state, no one is at fault when you get mowed down, Might want to get involved with a bit of education VS. assumption in that department.

RE: Nervous about ending up with a mass produced junk box.

Now getting a non Amish crew would have merits lol. What a bunch of hacks the Amish. They need to stick to barns and corn cribs. . I live in the middle of forty thousand plain folk, Amish and Mennonite, in PA. Many are craftsmen, most do extremely high quality work. ALL of the hard furniture in our house was made locally, some is new, some is decades old, and still looks and works new. No reason to think that it won't last for the next hundred years, as it's built better than it was a century ago. Back then they didn't Kreg screw and urethane glue joints together, or have the finishes available that last for decades without yellowing or pealing. When it comes to the quality issues plaguing the industry, it's all about who is running the show. You pay peanuts, and demand that everybody run around like idiots, the work looks like it was done by monkeys on meth. The fact that your RV was slammed together by a 19 year old drug addict and high school drop out from Elkhart, or a 60 year old Amish church elder from shipshewana, is meaningless. They are both under the gun to smash the thing together as fast as possible. Right or wrong, well done, or pathetic, is of no concern to management. OTOH, if you own a company, and look at every product as a statement about who you are, you end up with stunningly high quality products. The Amish shed manufacturing business in this area is one example. You have Amish company owners using design softwear, and CAD/CAM optimizing saws to precut all their sheet goods, plywood,T-1-11, etc.... They then construct sheds that are extremely well built, and precise. Not a nail out of place, crisp, straight edges on everything, and delivered for 20-30% more than you would spend clubbing the same thing together as a DIY project. If another group of Amish decide to take a shot at opening a new RV manufacturer, they could build an amazing product, at a competitive price. It's been done before, and who knows, given the current environment in the industry, maybe it's time for another one.

RE: Nervous about ending up with a mass produced junk box.

Lots of good advice here. We have owned ten RVs in a long stretch of being addicted to camping. I would strongly second the buying used aspect. I would also recommend that you buy it from a private sale, and from the original owner. Nothing cuts through the bull twinkies more than being able to look the original owner in the eye, when you discuss things like leaks and other problems. Second, never trust an opinion from an owner, or member here, with regard to quality. First, there is the data VS anecdote value of asking "what do you think of your brand X RV?" The guy you are speaking to might of had a relatively trouble free experience. The next RV that rolled off the line, after his was built, might of been the biggest piece of garbage ever built. Second, a lot of folks have very selective memories, and a bit of an ego to deal with. They might have had a history of less than satisfactory experiences, but they tend to "forget" the bad times, and even look at the past with rose colored glasses, since telling you that they bought a POS is like admitting that they failed.They might have had a history of less than satisfactory experiences, but they tend to "forget" the bad times, and even look at the past with rose colored glasses, since telling you that they bought a POS is like admitting that they failed. Good luck, it's a tough issue to deal with. No one in their right mind is going to admit on a public forum that they screwed up and bought a junk box RV.... Problem is, many have but won't admit it.....:S Nail on the head, my friend. The wife and I have a term we coined, and use between ourselves. We call it "Fleetwood syndrome", and it involves avoiding the truth, or even flat our lying about your choices, since it's too hard for your ego to deal with the fact that you made bad ones. Almost fifteen years ago, when I was younger and dumber, we wanted a modest travel trailer and found that a Fleetwood Wilderness seemed to suit our needs. We asked on the forum and got 4-5 responses from Fleetwood owners who claimed that they were simply the greatest TT ever built. Boy did we get scammed following that advice. It came with a two year warranty, and it was nothing but problems for that two years. At the end of the 24 months the entire floor was rotted out, since they used defective cargo doors that funneled rainwater into the walls and under vinyl floor, completely undetected. Fleetwood denied the claim, based on a lack of maintenance. Truth was, it was not a maintenance issue. They knew of the defective doors and were hoping to burn up the clock, and deny claims, to avoid the huge cost of rebuilding countless trailers. There we were, two years into owning a pathetic POS, and it was rotten to the point of being totaled. So much for all the great reviews here. In the end, it was purchased from a small family run dealer who was battling on our behalf. After an ugly fight, the owner of the dealership ended up in a screaming match with a Fleetwood VP, and asked if they wanted to come grab all of their junk off his lot? He got them to pick the thing up, lift the body off and rebuild all the rot, at no charge. We got it back and dumped it, ASAP, before the next disaster reared it's head. Bottom line? Never trust glowing reviews here. Many are 100% true, and many are nothing but steaming piles of bull twinkies. Problem is, you don't know which is which.

RE: Coach Net vs Good Sam

The point I was trying to make about CN is that people have no place to vent on poor service from CN therefore less posts about bad service if it exists. Sorry if it went over your head. Second the post refer to a troll inferring that I was an apologist for CW so I set the record straight. AND yes I have found a great repair shop in Syracuse. MAYS TRUCK SERVICE. They have been wonderful. Lastly the post was not meant to be snarky if you feel that way that is on you Hilarious, that you find that your deep prose would of somehow gone "over my head". Sorry, but you have a way to go before that's happening. If you don't find telling somebody to go complain on a non-existent forum to be the definition of "snarky", you really need to brush up on your vocabulary.

RE: Coach Net vs Good Sam

With the horror stories of GS? Been with coach net years, used 3 times, one signed a form they had changed a tire. The other two the driver said nothing to sign they have already been paid. The last one was July when I lost a high pressure pump in my diesel TV just west of Wolf Creek Pass. They dispatched a tow truck & a 1 ton dully for my 5W. The 5W was put in a camp site near the repair shop and the truck to the shop. I asked the drive what it would have cost if I had not had insurance? 800+ about 1.5 hrs from break down till they had both vehicle to my location. Well done CN. Why didn't you post your compliment on the Coachnet site? Why not posted on coach net? The question was asked here plus I didn't know they had one. Be happy to post there but you need to belong to most forums to post, can't belong to every forum on the net. PS: Quick search and no forum, maybe a link? Don 't bother continuing down this rabbit hole. Some "members" on here are pretty talented apologists for any CW disaster, and you are just feeding a troll. I've had CN for over a decade, and it's not only a relative bargain, but they are there when I need them, and it's been nothing but satisfaction. OTOH, I can't count how many, "I have GSRS and I CAN'T BELIEVE how badly they just screwed me" threads that end up here, on a regular basis. I am far from an apologist for CW. Just ask them or check my previous posts. However the poster who was "complimenting" Coachnet started out by bashing GSRA. My point is people dissatisfied with GSRA will join just to complain about the service received from GSRA and GSRA will respond to their complaint. MY opinion is very few people will join here to complain about Coachnet. Therefore you will see most dissatisfied GSRA customers making a post here but very few dissatisfied Coachnet customers. IT could be Coachnet is better than GSRA but to compare them based upon the number of complaints here is not fair. On the other hand Camping World service is absolutely horrid and I am still madder than Hades about the service and response I received from CW specially the arrogant service manger at their Syracuse location. I will bad mouth them every chance I get until I feel I have evened the score plus interest. They "cheated" me out of about $450.00 on the poor service work I purchased from them. I let everyone know as often as I can. I have posted frequently about this service and will continue to do so however I can separate the entities. So please before calling me an apologist do your due diligence. No need to do any "due diligence" as your story really isn't part of this thread, and I find anybody digging through another members post history to be a bit creepy, to put it charitably. That said, making a snarky post, directing a member to a CN forum to complain, is more than a bid odd from a supposed CW hater, no? What's next, a glowing review for the Syracuse CW on "RVsevicereviews.com"? On a serious note, I hope you found a good alternative for service in the Syracuse area? Given my past experience, when it comes to upstate, there is no danger of my rig ending up in a service bay at Wilkins, RV One, or CW. That whole region is full of aggressive and shady dealers.

RE: Bathroom faucet repair

Ours also leaks onto the counter, especially at the back. https://i.imgur.com/86QOCpml.jpg I have a stick house faucet that looks like it will fit but am reluctant to give up the shower attachment. I took it all apart a few years ago and replaced the O rings. I think it improved for a year or so. I do remember it was quite complicated and tricky to put back together. I hope you will find a better fix and post it here! I wonder if you could install a kitchen faucet with a sprayer and modify the sprayer with a shower head. Just saying ... Probably not. Typical two handle kitchen faucet is 8" on center, bath is 4", so stuffed into that corner on a 45* angle, my guess is that it wouldn't work, since it's too long. Might be a great idea in other similar applications, though.

RE: Almost head on

Well, this should all get "better" now with the soon to come driverless otr rigs in large close trains. Think how much safer that will be. Sorry, but I'm not personally liking the thought of any computer aided non human driven vehicle of any size, and am hard pressed to imagine how this is somehow a safer alternative to current vehicles. Considering the rv in this article, I'd say the driver managed to do the nearly impossible given the circumstances, and fortunately no loss of life. Your ancestor in the early 1900s: "Sorry, I'm not personally liking the though of my love ones being actual PASSENGERS on one of those crazy flying machines. I am hard pressed to imagine a device that does little but scare the cattle, and provide a way for those "barnstormer" hucksters to distract our youth, can be a safe alternative to our fine system of horses, mules, wagons and buggies" See a pattern here?

RE: Chinese Vehicles

Volvo is owned by Geely from China. Jaguar is owned by Tata from India. Both are still based and built in Sweden and Britain.

When it comes to the Jag, and Rover brands, that isn't worth even bothering to respond to. Jags and Rovers are nothing but leased trophy trash. You spend $800 a month for a few years, and let the dealer come get it, every few weeks when it dead again. They give you a fancy loaner, you think you're important, and you sign up for another one at the end. You would need to be a fool to actually outright own one, especially after the warranty is done. Jalopnik has a great running series by of their writers, who owns a slightly used Rover. If there is a bigger piece of sheet on the planet, it would be tough to find. Interesting you feel that way since they were all Ford owned companies not that long ago. I have a Land Rover and after more than 100,000 miles, no real "issues" to speak of. I'm sure you do.

Improved sales and improved quality, reliability, and durability can often have no relationship with each other.
