RE: Under frame cooking table storage for travel trailer

I would think that one good trip down a dirt road in the rain will bring a mod to the mod. I would enclose it something lightweight...plexiglass? sheet metal?

RE: New here...campgrounds that do not allow campfires

Your camping opportunities in a tent with no campfires will be extreemly limited. Campfires are part of camping. I do applaud you for taking the resposibility on yourself(s) instead of expecting everyone else to give up their campfire for you. Seldom seen today. As other posters said, your best bet is to the place you want to camp and check their policies. Perhaps explain as well and see if they can put you in an isolated section, lots of state parks here have "pioneer camping" away from everyone elsee.

RE: Going to Try NOT Using the WD Hitch Bars

Each time I've hauled my TT, I've used one less chain link on the WD bars. On our next upcoming trip, I'm going to put them in the bed of the truck and go without them to see the difference. The problem is that I have about a 4500lb trailer, which probably has about 500lb max tongue weight. Behind my 1 ton F350, it barely squats the truck when coupled. At my lowest hitch position, the trailer sits "tilted back" when the WD bars are attached. This puts more pressure on the back tires, and IMO, makes for a bit rougher ride. From a weight-distribution standpoint, I don't need any. I still intend on using the sway control bar, as I have found that to be very helpful. The weight bars have nothing to do with your truck and everything to do with your hitch...whats it rated at?

RE: Birmingham to savannah - best route around Atlanta

Why does everyone try to avoid Atlanta? There is no good time to go through Atlanta, I have been in jams at 0100 and breezed through at rush hour. Most of the time the "avoidance routes" are either too many miles to make them worthwile or they are the roads that are jammed up. Your best bet I20 to Atlanta, I75 to Macon, I16 to Savannah. Stop trying to beat an unknown traffic problem.

RE: Overcharge really tears it for me !

I've been a loyal supporter of CW & Good Sam; in fact, we'd had great service from the Brownsville, MI location and from the ESP -- but I can't defend them anymore! I sent the following to both CW Customer Service & mlemonis@campingworld.com: "As a loyal Good Sam member & Camping World customer, I’m writing you to intervene in this issue. In July, I received a mailing about CW’s introduction of the SmartPlug electrical system products. I had been anxiously awaiting this quality product, and when I saw that CW was carrying the combination Power Inlet and 30 Amp RV cordset, I placed my order on July 20th (#12558172). When I received the kit drop-shipped from the manufacturer a few days later, I was pleased – until a few weeks later, when my friend looked on the CW site and found that the combination set sold for $295.99 – and that the two parts individually sold for $242.98 (a difference of $53.01) !! (See attached screenshot) Why is this pricing backwards? I would expect that the combination set would be less costly than the individual parts, and hereby request a refund of the overcharge of $56.19 (53.01 + 6% sales tax charged) – per the “Campingworld.com Promise” of “Satisfaction Guaranteed”. Sincerely," I've just received the following response from CW Customer Service: "Thank you for contacting Camping World. We apologize for the inconvenience. Per our price guarantee, If an item you purchase from us goes on sale within 14 days from date of purchase, we will issue a merchandise certificate for the difference. Unfortunately, we would not be able to credit you back the difference in the two items." They're just not getting it: the issue is not that an item went on sale after I purchased it; rather, it's that the combination kit is STILL priced at $53.01 HIGHER than buying the two component parts separately! This wasn't a sale price, it's the standard listed prices for the three items! :h And, no response from Marcus, himself. No wonder there are so many "Guaranteed Unsatisfied" folks posting in this forum. Why didn't you fully check out pricing before you purchased. You screwed up not CW. Had you done your job you could have saved making yourself look stupid and saved a sensless rant.

RE: Camping World and latex balloons

We have just returned from the Maine Samboree held in Fryeburg, ME. While there we decided to visit the local Camping World. We walked in and immediately turned around and walked out. My wife is severely allergic to latex rubber. The Camping World store had latex balloons everywhere. Latex allergy is a common allergy among medical people, such as nurses, that used latex gloves. Fortunately, this is becoming less common since most hospitals and doctors offices have switched to vinyl or nitrile gloves. A couple of years ago I contacted Marcus Lemonis by email concerning the presence of latex balloons at the Rally in Louisville, KY. I was assured that there would be no latex balloons in the Camping World area at the Rally. True to his word, there were none. Last year we went to the Rally in Syracuse, NY. I assumed there would be no balloons there. Well, you know what assume means. There were latex balloons all over the CW area. Needless to say we avoided the area like the plague. I don't know how many others walked out of the CW near Fryeburg, but I bet we weren't the only ones. The store lost a possible sale, and maybe more. Is Camping World going to join the 21st century? I know Mylar balloons cost more but are safe for people that are allergic to latex rubber. So you expect the rest of the world to change for your wife. NO! I'm sick and tired of the the allergy libtards wanting to ban everything. It's your problem deal with it. Let the rest of us enjoy our ballons, nuts or whatever else bothers you.

RE: Custom RV Mattress Mattress Insider

Recently we bought a new matress for the house. While we were at the store we asked about an RV sized matress...we had one custom made for $400 and it is great. Jameson brand. Go see your local bedding store, what you lay on in the store will what you get only custom sized.

RE: Where to buy good semi-cheap ratchet socket set in USA?

I bought a socket set at Sears Canada a couple decades ago. It served me well but now the case plastic hinges have come apart and parts are not secure within the case. Prices are generally better in the USA but I am not sure what is the best place to get something similar that will have a compact and durable case and not too expensive. I need: Metric + Imperial ratchet and socket 3/8" and 3/4" selections Screwdriver and bits would be a plus Most of all I want it to come well organized in a case that will last and be easy to transport. Why not repair the box? Video I have seen people find a generic case link cut the fitted inside out of their old one and install it in the new one. Either way your best best bet is to find a way to repair the case.

RE: Tires

I've noticed that all a large percentage of x-chock users get tire bulges. My opinion...I ran a set of Carlisle tire totally out, to the treadwear indicators. Go with what your local tire dealer rcommends.

RE: Dealer's service dept frustrating me

So what's the point in posting here? Just to rant? Your situation is still not resolved is it? Stop ranting and whining and find a service center you are con=mfortable with or DIY.

RE: 11 Tricks Restaurants Use To Make You Spend More Money

It's all about the bottom line.... Of course it's about the bottom line, they are in the BUSINESS to make MONEY! Is the American public so naive to think that resturants or any other business for that matter wouldn't employ any and all sciences and techniques to make it more profitable? :S

RE: victim of dishonest Seller

You should have fully checked out the camper BEFORE you bought it. Instead the title being "victim of a dishonest seller" it should read "I'm a victim of myself". You have no one to blame in this matter but yourself.

RE: Trailer tires

What are you towing so that we can compare:h Is it a very heavy 5er or extremely heavy TT? Just curious so that you can tell us what experience with carlisle with what heavy 5er? And no,there are not that many good reports on Carlisle tires unless used on much lighter trailers, more TT's than 5er's...IF they're on 5er's, and they go above 10-11,000#, they're are issues...It's funny that one can just google Carlisle ST tire reviews and they ain't all that stellar. for information ask Carlilse tire owners, really?? probably pretty unbias right?.. An 85% loaded tire on a 5er is no different than an 85% loaded tire on a TT pop up or wheelbarrow. the tire dynamics, load, pressures, etc are all the same.

RE: Disappointing Flagstaff Trailer purchase

. Poor quality control and a lack of integrity dictate that RV dealers must prey upon the newbies and the uninformed that come to their facility . The baby boomers that are prime customers now , grew up in an era where your word and a handshake were your bond . Easy pickins ! . Cynical much?
