RE: PO'd Rv owner

...Do these manufacturers not care one iota about the lives of the people who give them their money. I don't know how they can get away with this. ... You, and your families life and safety are YOUR responsibility.

RE: Good Sam Roadside Assistance is a Waste of Money

Every other day there is a post about issues with GSRA. When do you think they will get their head out of the sand and correct these issues. I will not even shop at Camping World for the lack of customer service. We were gonna buy a new Winnebago Diesel pusher from them well . . . Right before signing the sales manager came out (different from first one) and said "the other one made a mistake we have to adjust your trade down $7500" BYE BYE we said. Did a deal right down the street from them with no BS You really don't understand do you?

RE: Tip: "Tractor" fuel = RV diesel

Coming from Florida into Georgia when I was heading to the Okeefenokee Swamp there was a fuel check station that all diesel trucks have to pull into. Once I stopped and he saw I was pulling a camper he waved me on through without even getting out of his chair. It's literally in the middle of nowhere so I assume he checks the more "farm" looking trucks. Do you mean agriculture inspection station? I have never seen a "fuel check" station in GA. Florida has Agricultural Inspection Stations and that is what you probably saw. They are not looking at campers and they are NOT LOOKING AT FUEL. Nobody is stopping ANY vehicles anywhere that I'm aware and checking the color of fuel. Since nobody can find evidence of this happening it sounds like a bunch of bull%^&$. If they are going to check anyone it would be commercial vehicles not RV and POVs.

Can anyone show a case where someone got busted for off road fuel?

RE: 6 days to get a tow

Yes 6 days to get a tow. Was on way to penna. 6/7/17 when overheated stopped at Rushville Oh. gas station with cracked heads or blown head gasket this was about 1pm a mechanic was getting gas and came over to help got some water and antifreez in it and it was coming out the exhaust he said cracked head or head gasket. I called a friend at Zanesville and he got a garage that would look at it right away. I called Good Sam Roadside Assistance I talked to some woman she said that that they would get someone there in a few hours they would tex and call me, no call or tex. I called my friend to come get us and take us home. I called from home Thursday they said someone will be there to tow it within a few hours again a no show, called again after waiting for hours for them to show up said same thing again a no show. Friday talked to Machell they sent tex ETA 5:30 no show my friend went to A-1 towing they told him Roadside cancelled the tow what the hel- Saturday talked to Ariva another no show, talked another one again no show, no one open Sunday. Monday talked to Anthoney he said B&H towing out of Zanesville will be there within a hour drove over and waited about 3 hours I called B&H towing co. they told me they don"t tow a diesel I told them it was a GMC 454 gas engine they said no it is a diesel then they told me Anthony from Roadside Assistance told them it was a Diesel and his driver was over and looked at it and he said it is a diesel what is wrong with these people every one I talked to I told them what motor it had in it they all ask me what happened. Called again this time it was Kriss out of Utal she said some one will be there in the morning at about 9am you will get a tex at 8am giving you ETA. 8:30 am I called to make sure that they were going to come, no record on me, told the girl it was 6 days could I talk to a supervisor she said ok put me on hold after about 4-5 minutes on hold they hung up on me. I called again got someone with a brain they had A-1 towing out to me by afternoon this was Tuesday the 13th. 6 days without a tow to the garage that would look at it right away about 20 miles away. I have been a member for 9 years and never used it, my membership is paid up to 07/20/18 I know there can be a mess up once in a while but 2 or 3 times a day for six days is not right. After a while you have to assume responsibility in your life and take some action.

RE: What's in a name?

Naming cars, RVs and other inanimate objects is childish and stupid.
RandACampin 06/15/17 03:50am Travel Trailers

I just left Forest River Forum. This is really not a great forum. When on that site you post a thread in the Hybrid forum, you get answers from owners of Class A, Class C, Fifth Wheel etc etc, that has nothing to do with the OP question. I feel they just write something to get a higher answer score......Sad, real sad !!! Dre Your going to get the same thing here...see ya.

RE: Work done at dealership

Had to get some small things fixed on the Winnebago and was looking at the bill and noticed they charged me 52.50 to check my air pressure in my tires.The inner deals are hard and they gave me a price on the extenders. Do you think this is a lot of money for the service or not. Doesn't matter if anyone else thinks is a lot of money for the service, we are not paying. What do you think? If you think it's worth it, do it. If you don't think it's worth it don't pay. Why is that so hard?

RE: Frustrated by short beds and uniformed salesmen

Any good mattress store can mattress of most any brand, style and firmness. We had a custom one done for our trailer and IIRC it was $300.00 and matches the house in firmness.

RE: Frustrated by short beds and uniformed salesmen

We are shopping for our first travel trailer. Something around 26-30ish long. The lighter the better..... I'm 6' tall aka 72". Most of the mattresses are only 74" long. So with my pillow I'll probably be hanging off the end and not comfortable. Some of the salesmen acted like they had no idea the mattresses were shorter. I'm finding it frustrating to compare brands and features. We have a toddler so we need a bunkhouse with a tub. I looked at a Keystone Premier that had the bunkhouse but no tub. :-( And finding what a fair price is annoying too..... This whole process is frustrating Not to mention those uninformed consumers!

RE: What will happen?

I found success easier to achieve when working for others and in the Army by keeping my nose out of my boss's or commander's adult children's issues. PS - Minor children too. Please note I didn't say that you may need more to do. My Boss and his family have never camped or owned an RV. I have for many years. I just wanted to know what you fellow experienced campers feel. Am I being over cautious or will they have a miserable time finding shelter? I know it is none of my business but feel that my experience and advice from a forum full of thousands of readers who may have direct experience with an issue like this may have some good solid advice for these young men! If you are the seasoned camper you profess to be why do you need anyone's input to talk to your boss. Either mind your own business or get some stones and tell your boss what you obviously think. Why do you feel the need to validate with everyone else?

RE: Waiting for a diesel pump at Loves exit 233 on I-65

Hey, folks, I wasn't trying to create a controversy. If I had left my vehicle to tie up a gas pump when the entire place is full up with people waiting... well, my mama didn't raise me like that. If someone had moved my vehicle, I would have died from embarrassment, not threaten to beat people up. Now, did I actually have a gun behind my back? Of course not, it was a bluff and it worked. So, please accept my apology for causing folks to get upset. I thought some would get a chuckle out of my story, because, I'm sure, many folks secretly wish they could do the same sometimes. Steve Then you are just plain stupid. Pretending to have a gun when you don't? Especially after stealing the mans vehicle, yes stealing.

RE: Waiting for a diesel pump at Loves exit 233 on I-65

I'd be knocking on their door INFORMING THEM of PROPER PROCEDURES for using fuel pumps at truck stops. Where are these PROPER PROCEEDURES written down? What are they?

RE: Camping World will not price match. Do your research!

I talked to a customer service rep tonight about the 7500 watt dual fuel generator which sells at Camping world for $949.00 on sale. I can get the same generator at Cabelas for 899. She refused to price match, so Cabelas will get a 900 dollar sale which would have otherwise gone to Camping World. In the store last weekend, I was thinking about picking up a Sewer Solution, as I had one a few years back with a prior 5th wheel. $159 at Camping World. $79 at Amazon. I do love to spend my money on my rv'ing habit, but I try to spend wisely rather than foolishly. I think I'll probably just buy all of my stuff at Cabelas rather than Camping World if this is how Camping World does business. News flash...not every store has a price match policy. :S

RE: Road side fire caused by failed trailer tire.

Today about 10 miles North of I-15 on 93 their was a rig on the side of the road with a trailer tire completely gone on the passengers side. Up the road a short distance the side of the road was on fire for a 1/4 to 1/2 mile. I concluded that sparks for the wheel set the dry brush on fire. Chris How did you conclude that? If it was up the road he would not be there yet. More likely a cigarette thrown out of a vehicle, happens all the time.
