Please when posting provide as much information as possible

Being more specific in terms of the topic title would not only increase the chances of getting good responses but also it would be of great value when folks are doing searches..

Whether posting a question or reporting a remedy...Please provide as much specific information relative to make, model year...

When asking questions or commenting relative to your chassis please be specific about what type chassis you have.. this is particularly important relative to suspension issues...Also please include relevant information relative to chassis issue such as axle weights and tire pressures.

If you have generator problem, include as much specific information about the nature of the problem as well as the make and model of your generator... If its a transmission or an engine question please be specific as to which make, model and year you are wanting information on.. Always include the year of your motorhome..

If you are having a problem or want to ask a question about a feature or component whether it be a refrigerator, stove, furnace, steps, please be specific as to which make, model and year you are wanting information on.. Always include the year and model of your motorhome..

The more information you provide the more likely you are to get an informed quick response.. Being specific will not only help those who want to help but it will also lessen the chance that the information provided will not be subject to misinterpretation due to differences in makes, models, and model years. What works in one instance may not apply in another... Providing specifics will also greatly aid those doing searches....

Thanks...JohnnyT

I just love it when a topic reads something like: "Who Do You Have Your"

Now we have to open the message just to see if it a question we can help with or not. I usually just skip those.

Johnny, I certainly wish you success with your repeated request. Lack of specifics in the "Subject" is the only real complaint I have with the forum. If you could only find a way to impress upon folks when they are creating a subject line to think about the readers before they actually write, it may help. I don't know what to suggest to make this happen though. Guess that's why they pay you the "big bucks" though(Har-Har-Har).
You're doing a fantastic job, keep it up.


Happy RV'ing!!

I too agree that more descriptive titles would be nice but it will probably never happen.

Just look back through any forum and compare the hits that posts entitled "Need help with brake pads" get compared to the threads entitled "If size matters then..." Clearly 21.547% of the titles have nothing to do with the content of the thread and are cleverly worded to lure in readers.

It's sad that members find it necessary to trick others just to get them to read their posts. And we all share the blame for that. Perhaps we could all start spending a moment or two a day reading the "non-sensational" posts. Who knows, you might just be the one in a thousand that has that special little tidbit of information the person is looking for.

What’s the matter, you don’t like the one-word topics like…

Help!!!
Water
Towing
GPS
Graphics
Photos
Campgrounds
Border
Questions???
Satellite
Batteries
Lights
Seattle


…or the 2 worders…

Please help (help please, need help)
State parks
What size?
Need advice


Real descriptive, aren’t they? [emoticon] Don’t they make you feel like you have to open and read them right now?!? Not!

Yes, I wish people would be more descriptive of the question they are asking in the topic and provide as much info as possible the first time around, but you probably should excuse the newbies for awhile, they haven’t learned that yet.[emoticon]

Johnny, thank-you for the "guidelines" for asking questions. As the "New Kid" on the block (joined yesterday) it will help me to format the question in a clear and concise manner to be able to take advantage of all the great talent on this forum.

As a side note: This is one great forum!!!
