RE: Slide-Outs @ Walmart

........ If you don't like it fine then don't do it - but please don't preach to me, I'm not in your church. ;) My sentiments exactly. Why is it some people want to tell everyone else what they should and shouldn't do? Because the few will ruin a good thing for all. So everyone has an interest in keeping a good thing going. Walmarts are now dropping the perk, because it's been abused. There is no reason Walmart should have to get police involved and evict people who 1. Decided to live in Walmart and 2. Decided to store their camper there instead of paying for a storage place. 3. Disrupt there business. 4. Damage their property with jacks and the list goes on to showering in the parking lot, dumping tanks, etc, etc... I've been annoyed with Rvers at my local walmart who thinks it's okay to put slides out and block roadways. It's a matter of respect and not to take advantage of something that is given. Complete and total BS. You just can't stand someone doing it different than your perceived rules. There are no rules for Wal-Mart camping...get over yourself. While your at show proof that jacks down and slides out by Wal-Mart campers caused them to stop the "privilege". Your reading comprehensions is pretty poor, I suggest you go back and re-read before "demanding" proof. Blocking roads is a pretty universal "rule". :S People who say, "There are no rules for Wal-Mart camping" are part of the problem. It's ok to admit you can't show proof...we all know you can't. While your at it... show Wal-Marts rules for camping at their stores...that's right you can't do that either. There are no rules for Wal-Mart camping, face it.

RE: What do you use for a BBQ?

I can't remember what the model is called but it is a rectangular Webber with fold down legs that fold up to hold the lid on securely. Even though I use propane at home this uses charcoal. This works well because I am more likely to be using my "camp dutch oven" for most all of my camping cooking. Jim. Go Anywhere charcoal Go Anywhere

RE: What do you use for a BBQ?

The Weber I use is great. It's black, sort of rectangular with a lid and works off the small screw on propane tanks. There are several sizes and mine was around $100. Only problem is that aren't tall enough to do something large like a chicken. Great for steaks, chops, pieces of chicken and I have done a small roast in foil. Sounds like a Weber Go-Anywhere. They are available in charcoal and propane. I use my Weber Smokey Joe, with the tamale pot conversion it doubles as a grill and a small smoker. I also take an 18-inch Jumbo Joe. Looking for a go anywhere gas to use with my griddle for breakfast. Anything weber is just awesome.

RE: Explain why I can't patch a tire.

Seems the OP knows more than the tire shops do.

RE: A Veteran Needs Help Getting His RV Fixed

As a vet myself it always saddens me when someone plays the vet card...it's not germane to his situation. Most vets are proud of their service, as they should be, but anyone playing the vet card to garner attention to a situation that has nothing to do with military service is doing all vets a disservice.

RE: BEWARE OF CAMPING WORLD IN LONDON, OH AND HEARTLAND RV

It's sad, really sad, when we haven't heard a single happy story since ownership began in Sept 2013. First post on RV Net slamming a dealer. Oh well, off to read some happy stories or someone needing help. What's really sad is we always get just one side of the story, the OPs, who is free to embellish, and slant the story to favor him. What you never hear in these stories is any responsibility for the situation by the OP or the other side(s) of the story. Even sadder is all the people who believe is happened just like the OP says.

RE: Doing the right thing

I can see some problems on both sides. There was definitely a lack of clear communication from the OP to CW.

RE: No road side Assistance! Blow out on interstate!

I feel compelled to respond to this post. Many million dollars are spent every year for these Road Side Assistance programs. Too many times they are useless!!!!! It has been my experience - once in New York state and once in Ca.- that the Highway Patrol WILL help you. 911 will get help. Both times the Trooper changed my blow out himself. He said "this is my job". If he can't help himself, he will get help to you. And his help is FREE! Just saying........ You are only hearing the small percentage of bad. Even those aresults more often than not spend in favor of the op.

RE: No road side Assistance! Blow out on interstate!

snip... They kept referring to us as a trailer! And said that was why it was not covered! We are canceling our policy and feel blessed to have received help from Hwy. Patrol. Technically a tow dolly is a TRAILER! And I have to agree with Scottiemom, why didn't you let someone come out and replace the tire instead of insisting on a tow for your trailer. Seems to me you exacerbated your own situation instead taking a great solution offered by Good Sam. If that's how it happened then part of the onus on you and you should own that.

RE: Illegal / dangerous to pull 11,000 trailer rated 10,000 lbs?

Towing overweight on a non-commercial basis is illegal just as swapping out an outlet in your house without a permit is illegal. Both happen all the time. Things rarely go wrong when it's done. And when things do go wrong it's EXTREMELY rare for anyone to get in trouble for such actions. If people never did dumb things there would be no need for insurance. If/when there is an at-fault accident the guy with the upside down TV and TT would be named if or if not he was overloaded. Again, this is what insurance is for.... people doing dumb things. Your own insurance company would have to come after you after they paid off the damage to the other parties. They'd have a very high bar to meet to convince a judge or jury. Could it happen? Of course. Has it happened? Maybe but no one can ever seem to produce any proof. Should there be more/better enforcement of egregiously overloaded weekend warrior towers? IMO, yes. But there just isn't. No matter how much fear mongering and pontificating takes place on an internet forum. Show me anywhere that states switching out an outlet in your house is illegal.

RE: Keystone Customer Service Fail

Those that are offering advice or asking questions, did you miss it when the OP said; I'm not here for advise, or to hear opinions on the legitimacy of my claim.... He doesn't want advice or care about our opinions. No he just wants to bash and besmirch a company he's looking for help from. The mod should delete these bashing threads starting with this one.

RE: Weight police alert!

I don't generally care... we used to be a bit overweight even with the 3500 but this is downright silly. An older Alpenlite 5er - about 27 feet...with a large hydraulic lift on the back holding a sand rail kind of vehicle (or homemade rzr) AND it's being pulled by a f150.. We owned an Alpie. They are not light...and with that buggy on the back.. All I can say is wow. Why is it any of your business?

RE: Watch your speed in NC

For you people who "And I don't care how many other vehicles are behind me. Never have worried about them!" Since you don't care about the vehicles behind you (obviously you care only for your self), would you please have just a little consideration for those who need/want to get around you and keep in the right lane? Just because you have all the time in the world, there are truckers and others who still have a job and schedules to meet. Keep out of the left lane! And the center lane as well, if a 3-lane freeway.

RE: tough chicken breasts

Your are overcooking them! Try brining them in a simple brine for a few hours then grill to a temp of 165.

RE: Bought from Camping World?

Based on what a close friend of mine went through with after sale service, I would be very leery of buying an RV, of any kind, from CW. Obviously, with so many of them all over the country, some locations may be super good, while some others may be not so good. I definitely would not use the CW in Roanoke, VA. Now we have second-hand CW bashing. :h
