RE: Chinese Vehicles

Chinese factories build to specification. The reason you find so many poor quality items coming out of China is because consumers want items as inexpensively as possible, and companies are shipping production over there with the minimum specifications they can get away with. Some things made in China are of good quality, but you pay for it, just like you would pay more for an item of similar quality made here in the states. There are a few exceptions, like ball point pens, where Chinese manufacturing wasn't able to reliably produce high quality tips until very recently. With something like an automobile, where production is fairly well defined and streamlined there already, with many imported parts (to China, from Japan, Germany, and others), this goes back to whatever tolerances and specifications are sent over by the companies placing the orders. Don't look at the manufacturing location and turn it away, but look at the company placing the orders from China, and the product itself on the lot. That'll tell you miles more than the origin sticker. So those toys were speced to have lead paint? This argument that china builds to spec and the specs are wrong is BS! They will build to whatever suits them.

RE: camping world web site?

You should bail out of the Camping World membership. That will teach them. How dare they have a website that you can't figure out.

RE: Installing wood stove in RV

Now you're on to something. And firewood warms you 3 times. Definately think more disposable for the RV vs expensive though if you're going to do this. Protect your capital since you're in a bind already. Better get some dead wood split and put up now though or it'll be tough burnin. How is the OP in bind already?

RE: Sirius-XM Beware!

So because you either can't be bothered to read the TOS or are incapable of understanding it we have to beware of Sirius?

RE: Diaper Pail for toilet paper disposal.

Say WHAT???? Anything that is "Septic Safe" is fine. We've never had a problem putting it in the toilet. Toilet paper that disintegrates in water isn't nearly as big a problem as some of the other solid waste that goes in the toilet... On the other hand, in many other countries (much of Europe, South America, etc.), it is common practice not to put toilet paper in the toilet... in the homes and apartments. I don't know if it has something to do with the waste water processing plants or what. Rob All TP is septic safe whether is says so or not.

RE: Truck repair -- parts markup seems high...

The water pump in my F250 died. The garage I took it to (came recommended by a local and good reviews) wanted to charge me $235 for water pump I was able to buy at the auto supply place (with lifetime warranty) for $129. Warranted by who? The manufacturer? Are they going to remove and replace that part when it fails? They also wanted to charge me $68 for a serpentine belt which was $32 at the parts store. I am a single unmarried woman and it felt like they just assumed I wouldn't know or check the price of the parts. And you being a single unmarried woman means what? How is that relevant or are you just playing the sympathy card? Happy to pay for the labor but he first tried to talk me into letting him find a different source and parts (what quality I wonder) for close to the same price. You have to wonder about the quality of the water pump you bought. I would much rather put on a cheap belt than a cheap water pump...much easier to replace. When I asked about warranties on the parts he said it would depend on the parts and I told him that if we're going to do this I'd like a lifetime warranty since I was standing at that moment in front of one that did have a lifetime warranty that was over $100 less. He finally (after a lot of silence on my end) agreed to that, but then called me back in 20 min and said he couldn't get them for that price so could I just bring the parts over. Why would anyone buy parts from a garage for that kind of mark-up when they could get them retail for so much less? Because when there lifetime warranted part fails they will remove and replace for free. The parts you bring...NO! I'm new to the area and need to find a place that I trust. I'm going to ask other garages for quotes to compare so I can get a sense of things. But doesn't that seem high and would any of you pay it when you could just take five min. to buy the parts yourself and hand them to the mechanic?

RE: Why Does Camping World Advertise Items they don't have?

All this trouble for a $25 purchase! Indeed, you certainly are making a spectacle of yourself over a $25 purchase. :h

I wouldn't do it. I'm comfortable with size of my equipment and my ego is fine as well.

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?
