HEADS UP- THE O.P.HAS POSTED A CLARIFIER!
See quote below
Restrictive covenants begun in 2006 to run with the land for 25 years with a possible 5 year extension...
Shoulda turned up in the Title search: go after the Title Insurance company, O.P.!
Assuming of course you bought Title Insurance-?
Sorry for unanswered questions, we live in good ol Mississippi (migrated from boston 4 years ago)
I got a legal copy of the covenants put into effect in 2006 by the development builders
It says it is good for 25 years plus 5 if the community agrees at such time.
lays with the land so by purchasing my home i've "agreed" to the terms.
any of the other homeowners can enforce these covenants through civil court and if i lose i will be responsible for all court costs.
Entirely cheaper for me to store my MH and sell my home for under market value( we bought a short sale) and really bring the value of the neighborhood down through comps.
May just find me some acres out of city limits and live by my own rules.Should have done a title search anyway!!! Am amazed that all banks don't require it.
I just put in my Pilot/Flying J credit card and then type in the control number.
Control number? What is that?
I just fueled at a FJ early this week. I put in my FJ card, then my credit card and fueled. I received 3 cents off per gallon.
He's talking about the PFJ RV Plus Card, but it is not a credit card, it's a debit card that has to be paid in full each month. There is a $1,000 limit card and a $2,500 limit card. All the details are on the site.I'd call that a "charge card", which is only good at particular station. But if it is connected to a bank account, and you need money in the account to cover the charge, then I'd call it a debit card.
A friend of mine installed a OPS Bypass, 3 micron, filter system
on his 2001 Cat 450HP MH.He says after driving 2000 miles his oil is still clean?
what are the pros and cons on this this system??
IF there this good why do we not see them used by all??
You believe everything your buddy tells you??? After driving 20 miles..let alone 2,000 miles will hie oil be clean ( On a diesel rig) because a FILTER cannot"strain out" anything in his oil that is soluble (sp?) and of course in this case anything smaller than 3 micron. All he is doing is backing up in his own mind the cost, etc...of the bypass system he installed.But it is entirely possible for a 100,000 mile oil change. VW has been using 30,000 mile oil change intervals in their European commercial diesels for quite some time now. Nothing special except VW's spec'ed full synthetic oil and VW spec'ed oil filters. The optic sensor in the oil pan of their non commercial engines tells you when to change it also. They actually specify:
"2 Years/30,000KM/18,000MILES (most commonly used in EU) Oil Sensors might adjust distance base on the driving style"
"1 Year/50,000KM/30,000MILES (Used for commercial Vehicles)"
With our elite membership, we get 7 cents off/gallon using the RV Plus card. Whenever we find a flying j to stop at and to use, it's no higher priced than any other gas station in that area and definitely not 7 cents different. I am not going to drive all over town with a motorhome that gets 8mpg to just save a penny or two on a gallon of gas.
I don't know what the big deal is. Flying J, could just stop any kind of rewards program period and everyone would be out. They are partnering with Good Sam for it's members. For members this is a good thing. Especially those who would never bother to sign up for a rewards program, but will not automatically get it. Yes, there will be some who refuse to join Good Sam and will no longer use a Flying J (so they say). To each their own.Don't forget that you pay for that "elite" membership. You pay for elite membership to a privately owned commercial enterprise.
Not joining any corporate buyers club just to get a discount. If they can't give a discount thru a faternal type club like fmca, I'll take my business elsewhere. Now if Good Sam got back to just being a club...
200k and after you own it for five years it,ll have 300k on it who,s gonna want it? in my opinion its past its prime . it,ll turn into a money pit.I would . My 20 old high end unit is going to take a trip to Arizona this winter.
Your probably buying a full time job, for yourself and dw, that doesn't make much money and very little profit. I looked a long time ago and everything I looked wanted over a million. And the books just did not add up to that anytime in the far future.
here you go. Have fun figuring it out. I'm not planning on exploring Illinois and buying LP there anytime soon.
He followed up by saying, "Sometimes there is an ASME stamp on RV tanks – these tanks do not require periodic documented testing."
Well, now doesn't that make it clear as mud, lol.
DougThat might make it clear as mud in St. Louis, but the OP's problem was in Illinois!!! A state has the right to make a federal law or code tougher.
You guys need to talk to someone in the trucking industry. They don't let their Class 8 over the road tractors venture far from home when they are new. They know better, and keep them close to the shop until they get all the bugs worked out of them. Those new rigs really keep the shop techs on their toes and very busy. They are just like new RV!
I keep going back to a comment you made earlier……the entire motorhome is NOT WORTH the $7,000 fix of the engine……that being said, does anyone really want to enter into a legal battle that will need to call expert witnesses, depositions, lawyers fees, ect….at $150 per hour doesn't give you much wiggle room before you have already exceeded the cost of the repair costs……the dollar amount puts it above small claims court and I wonder if you are in a state that allows counter suits to pay for legal expenses of the person you are suing if they are found innocent?That's when you cut you losses, tell the shop that they can salvage it, that you will send them the title, and get in your toad and head home with the rental trailer you filled up with all your rv stuff.
That is the one thing I dislike about traveling. We are at the mercy of the interstate garage hacks who are laying in wait for some sucker to come along. I'll never forget the day I had to show one of them how to set up and replace a air governor. And then the shop charged me the labor for showing their hack how to do something he said could not be done! And my lunch was gone when I got back to the restaurant. Had to pay for that too! They sure know how to take advantage of us. But there are some good ones out there too. They are the ones that I have to have faith that I will put in their mercy when I need help.
I was interested in one but I contacted the manufacture and told them I was on a restricted salt diet and they discouraged me from getting one.I really wonder about this??? And I do admit I am far from a expert. With the Flow Pur Mark 8000 and other Flow Pur softeners, the salt is flushed out of the unit after it has regenerated the resin. The salt is not retained in the unit. The purpose of the salt is to clean the minerals off the resin. Just who advised you about this. Have you talked to the folks at Flow Pur, (330) 547-4423, about this?
Should I retain one in the state it was purchased in? Or a local attorney?You need one who is admitted to the bar in the state where the transaction took place. If you have a local attorney, he might be admitted in that state also. And if he isn't, he might refer you to one who is.
Propane Container Re-Certification?
Posted by RV Doctor
Gary, what about re-certification of the large horizontal RV propane tanks? No one I ask, RV dealer or propane dealer, seems to know. Required or not? Doug C., (Peachtree Corners, GA)
Doug, in the US, only DOT (Department of Transportation), cylinders require periodic inspection and recertification. The same for Transport Canada cylinders north of the border. That said, the industry does manufacture a horizontal DOT/TC cylinder, like this one on the right.
But I don't believe it's the horizontal DOT/TC cylinders you are inquiring about. I'm guessing you're concerned about those larger, horizontal propane containers typically found on motorhomes, like this one on the left.
The rules for this type of propane container are governed by ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers). ASME tanks are not required to be re-certified since they are permanently installed. But DOT/TC cylinders, both vertical and horizontal, because they can be removed, transported and filled independently, do qualify for periodic re-certification.
All propane containers, tanks and cylinders, however, should be periodically inspected, cleaned and tested for leaks. All of which should be considered preventive maintenance common sense.
Labels: LP System
States can make federal laws stronger, but not weaker. And states can adapt their own certification codes. So until someone tells us the Illinois law and codes, we are still at a unknown here.
I just renewed Coach-net for the 5th time. Had the other and will never go back. I had the old Gold plan and when they up their rates and changed the plans, they let me keep the coverage of the old Gold plan which is the basically the same as the present Premier Coach plan, at the old plan price!!! Can't beat that!! Real stand up folks running Coach-Net!!! They have always done right by me.
