RE: marcus you need to know about this scam at CW online

yesterday I went on the CW website and purchased $125 worth of product. This morning I received an E mail from the club stating "thanks for renewing your good sam roadside assistance card." I did no such thing. I did not click on any secret scam button. Just another waste of time appealing the credit card charge. If my card is charged, Coach Net is in my future. And shame on you. Don't you guys make enough $$$ honestly? Guarantee you are at fault. Next time slow down and look at all the check boxes. Man up and take a little responsibility, before ranting in public.

RE: More CW Chattanooga problems

Stop being a whiner, trying to badmouth CW. If you really want a resolution man up and send them the requested information. Otherwise you are just bashing.

RE: Suggestions for Pie Irons/Sandwich Makers?

Before you buy the cast iron for kids...they are very heavy, especially for a kid. I have had the aluminum double for years and never had a problem. I also have a cast iron panini and round burger cooker and never use either on. They are just too heavy to sit there and hold over the fire. Wichever way you go...alum or cast iron, get the double sandwich cooker. If you get tired of sandwiches two triangles of crecent roll dough fill the bottom perfectly for pizzas and desert pies with pie filling. Two triangles in the top and two on the bottom. If you melt and aluminum pie iron in the fire, your doing something wrong.

RE: Atlanta Motor Speedway Family Camping

Unlike the other responders...I have camped there. I know they had a pumping service, I don't remeber the price though. I can't say about fresh water fill as I didn't need it...45 gallons lasted all weeken for us.

So you filed a complaint with different websites, etc. BEFORE you know the exact cause of the fire?? He filed an "incident report". The main purpose of such sites as Safercar.gov. is to track incidents- the value lies not in a customer giving an opinion as to what happened, but to store/count the events themselves. It's patterns that matter- if this turns out to be the only such incident reported, it's likely a fluke. But if there are more: the units will get a closer look. Not necessarily…filing a report because you threw some tools in the battery storage compartment, or something else to cause a short will certainly skew the data. Best to stop the knee jerk reporting and wait till a definitive cause can be found. Bad data reported for the sake of 'broadcast reporting" across multiple websites does no one any good.

We own a 2013 Keystone Cougar 5th wheel model 331MKS. It is 11 moths old. Yesterday my wife and I left for a 3 day weekend camping by the Pacific Ocean in Washington State (about 2 1/2 hours from our home). When we got to the campground, we started setting up. The rig was only on 12V battery power. I had not yet connected to shore power. When I pushed the button to lower the landing gear, nothing happened. I tried the remote control, and nothing happened again. Thinking that the battery may have discharged, I went to get the power cord intending to plug it in. The cord was in the storage area in the front, under the hitch, where the battery is. When I opened the door, immediately SMOKE was billowing out. Then I saw the FLAME. It was coming from the circuit board above the battery. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I immediately got the fire extinguisher. After using it several times, the flame kept coming back. I called 911 for the fire department. While on the phone with 911, they asked about propane on board. The propane tanks are right next to the area burning. I immediately removed both of them. All I could think of was the possibility of an explosion. The dispatcher asked if there was anything else nearby that could burn. I said "yes, it is connected to my truck which is full of diesel." I could imagine everything going up in smoke. I turned off the battery, turned off all the circuit breakers, but the flame kept coming back after I kept using the fire extinguisher. My wife went for the campground ranger. I finally emptied the fire extinguisher and the flame came back. I had nothing else to try, so I reached in and pulled the wires out which were all melted at and around the circuit board. The fire finally went out. By the time the fire department came, it was out. The camp ranger told us that he had never seen anything like this before since it was not plugged into 110. Since the trip was ruined and since the warranty is good for a few more weeks, I drove the rig to the dealer (about 2 1/2 hours away). I called them in advance. Initially they sounded like they didn't believe me. When I got to the dealership, 3 men came out to look. They said that they couldn't believe what they saw and that they had never seen this happen before. They took pictures. Our 5th wheel is now at the dealer. They said they will be talking to Keystone on Monday to see what next steps there are. I am sharing all this: 1. To alert fellow 5th wheelers about this, particularly anyone with a 2013 Keystone Cougar 331MKS. This could have resulted in serious injury or even death. What would have happened if this fire started in the night? The bedroom is directly above the compartment that was burning. We could have been killed. Why are you trying to single out Keystone and this particular model? This could have happened to ANY rv and you have no idea what caused it. 2. The dealer said this is the first time they have ever seen this. Maybe that is true (particularly for that particular dealership), but perhaps this is a bigger or pervasive problem. The staff at the dealership said that the circuit breaker or fuses between the battery and the circuit panel that burned had not done anything. Clearly that is a huge problem if the safety devices do not work when they should. Huge problem? Once again...calm down you have no idea what caused it. 3. I think it is important that fellow RVer's inform others of such hazards. Perhaps Good Sam Club or other agency tracks this kind of serious problem. I did lodge a concern with Consumer Reports already. I don't know if there is a state or federal agency that should also be notified. Notify them of what? Once again you have no clue what caused it. How do you know it's a serious problem? 4. I don't know what the resolution with Keystone and the dealership will be at this time. Perhaps there is some type of advocacy that is available to help us. Why should Keystone be involved at all...sounds more like an insurance claim. The term advocacy makes me think you are looking to sue. Turn it in to your insurance and let themn do their job. BOTTOM LINE: If this can happen to us, it could happen to anyone. We were fortunate that no one was hurt or worse. But, maybe the next family will not be so lucky. You are right it could happen to anyone. Most people turn it in to their insurance. I appreciate this opportunity to share this scary and worrisome situation with all of you. Sorry for your situation, but the bottom line is at this point in time you know nothing...the fire could have been caused by any number of things. Contact your insurance company and let them sort it out. Thats what it's for.

RE: LT tires on TT

When a tire says, trailer service only..That means something, to me at least. Your right it does mean something. It means it's for trailers only vs. motorized vehicle with a steer axle :S. Equating it the the safety, durability, or any other factor is BS.

RE: LT tires on TT

JJ was asking about the "business mystery" and I can tell that it's no mystery at all....folks who buy LT tires for trucks will run them until they wear out...buyers expect performance for 50,000+ miles. On the other hand, 0% of ST tires ever wear out....they age out. NOT TRUE AT ALL. I wore a set of Carlisle's to the treadwear indicators. Look at the miles that most trailers travel over the 5-7 year life span of a tire: very few. Many, many trailer owners are weekend warriors, or even better, seasonal site users. ST tires are made on the cheap, because their buyers don't expect to put many miles on them. Making them so cheaply means much bigger margins for the tire mfr. Tire mfrs have no good reason to encourage you to use an LT tire when they can tell you to buy an ST tires with 5x the profit margin. ST tires work fine for the weekend crowd....but if you are traveling the country and putting on serious miles, you soon realize that the LT is the better choice. Look at the guys on here that are recommending LT over ST: these guys have towed trailers for thousands of miles and are speaking from experience. Same reason that mfrs spec an ST tire: it's cheaper. Heck look at how tight they stretch the wires in your TT just to save an inch of wire. So JJ and others, sorry to say that while this technical discussion has been fascinating, there is NO technical reason to use an ST tire instead of an LT tire. Mfrs only sell STs because they can get away with making them so cheap that they make huge profits on them. There is so much conjecture and erronious information in your post that I don't know where to begin.

RE: Bad Business Practice at Holiday World in League City Tx.

If you had put a deposit on that unit, that constitutes an implied contract of your good faith to purchase the unit. If the dealer sold the unit to another person after you deposit was accepted the dealership was liable for fraud and you should have demanded compensation for your wasted time. Once I was visiting a car dealership looking at new trucks, I turned my trade-in key over to the dealership for an appraisal while I browsed the lot. Long story short, they sold my car while i was shopping. I didnt find out until i tried to leave. Selling a vehicle without legally owning it cost the dealership a brand new truck with all the bells and whistles for free in return for my signed release not to pursue legal action.Sounds like a couple of doses of internet urban legend to me. A dealership would not be able to sell a vehicle they did not own. It wouldn't appear in their inventory, they wouldn't have the information necessary to fill out a sales contract and they surely wouldn't deliver a vehicle they hadn't even checked into their inventory. Then they wouldn't give away a new truck to someone. Even if they made all those mistakes, they would just get the trade in back and give it back to you. As for a deposit equating a commitment to purchase...bunk. Try enforcing such a policy the other way around, the dealer suing the deposit placer for specific performance to complete the transaction. Cannot happen. A deposit without an accepted and valid sales contract is worthless. Doesn't create any obligation to either party. Ding ding ding...we have a winner!

Holiday world in League City, Texas: SPREAD THE WORD! Why, on some unverified one-sided rant? There is no proof, yet you want to campaign to drum these guys out of business? You should be ashamed and at the very least stop bandwaggoning and use a little common sense.

They stepped up to the plate and did the right thing, that's more than I can say for some businesses. THAT'S what renewed my faith in Cw Did they provide you with a quote before the installation?

RE: Bad Business Practice at Holiday World in League City Tx.

I can see how something like that could happen (where one salesman doesn't know another salesman just took a deposit on a unit) - and since it was a used RV, it's not like they could duplicate the deal. A huge apology would have been nice, though... It may have occured...were getting one side only.

RE: Bad Business Practice at Holiday World in League City Tx.

Bad Business practice at the Holiday world in League City, Texas yesterday.. Located a trailer I liked. Salesman quoted me the price, I made a conter offer, salesmen checked with his boss and returned and said he would sell it a that price. Went back inside and started Filling out the paper work and credit application waiting for the wife to arrive to show her the trailer. After filling out all the paper work and giving him a $2,000 dollar deposit, He came back and said it was sold 10 minutes ago... I guess someone must of had a better $ offer after we walked away from the trailer ....You would think that the sales manager would have contact the salesman to verify he was still working on the deal and paperwork... I spoke with the sales manager and he said Sorry! This seems to be Bad Business practice. What a waist of time at the Holiday World in League City Tx. I will look some where else to buy !!! Yeah, surely it couldn't be the truth...God forbind two different salesmen try to sell the same trailer at the same time. On the other hand your probably right, every trailer they sell...they come back and say "it was sold 10 minutes ago" :S

RE: LT tires on TT

YES...... Provided they fit the rims and the rims are rated for the psi/load capacity of the LT tire Wrong! Not all LTs are rated for trailers, not all have a good tread design for trailers. Your blind plugging of LTs is leading to bad information.

RE: Emails to renew Good Sam Roadside Assitance 4 months early.

If you rely on emails, flyers etc to manage your renewals then perhaps your the one that needs common sense. Its mass mailing you are not being targeted there are more important things to worry about.

RE: Mattress toppers?

Another option...we used a foam topper for years, but it eventually wore out. We were getting a new mattress for the house and asked the bedding store dealer about an rv matress. He had a line that he could custom cut, far superior to the RV matress/topper combo. You can also get it in any firmness you wish. IIRC the price for the matress was under $400.

RE: Dutch Oven Smokey Brisket

For those of you concerned about too much sodium this site has a lot of good recipe alternatives. Yes there is one for onion soup mix as well. I've used many of these recipes and all of them are pretty good or at least a good starting point.
