RE: Is this safe?

No it pulls on a receiver hitch not the bumper. "Bumper Pull" is a generic term referring to the trailer type vs. fifth wheel. Nobody pulls a trailer heavier than a few hundred pounds by their bumper. I know, just hate that term.

RE: New Trend?

This old warhorse never wants to back out of a spot when leaving. Some dope could park in a way.... Or some dope with no control of their rig could back into a car.

RE: Is this safe?

You didn't say if this a trailer or 5ver. If a 5ver, I can tell you the pin weight will wind up being more than stated on he sticker when your loaded. While ours is much bigger than what your looking at, the stated pin weight is 3600 lbs and we weigh in when loaded at 4200 lbs, so you might allow a little more in your calculation. I guess I assumed they don't make WDH for 5th wheel? Its a bumper pull No it pulls on a receiver hitch not the bumper.

RE: Gas station pet peeves

Having a Diesel does not entitle you to any island or pump. Get off your high horses and wait your turn.

RE: Can RV park owners handle guest property?

I came home tonight to find that my hard plastic lounge chair had been placed under my slide and my lounge chair padding had been folded and tucked into my steps in such a way that it couldn't be seen in the dark. I was carrying groceries and tripped and fell onto the gravel and got all scraped up. Since I've been here I've had a huge dog barking six feet from my bedroom window in another rig. The first day I finally complained the mangers said they never should have put a dog like that in the middle of the park. The manager spiraled from the stress. The people said they wouldn't move to a new spot so the manager told me I was just too sensitive. Everyone in the park can hear this dog, say it sounds like an attack dog and it starts at 6:30 a.m. and now I'm on probation essentially because "I'm not happy" and the message is basically that if I complain again I'm out of here. As the stress mounted this manager became more and more irritable and when I asked if she could sleep through that she changed the subject. She said he's been "offered" another spot but that if he doesn't move I can change spaces (a big deal, I work out of my rig) or leave. I think she's probably the one who did this and is acting out. 10 years on he road and I have never experienced anything like this. She's told me that as long as I'm happy they're happy. The message being that if I cease to be happy and have any kind of valid complaint I can leave. Now I'm bleeding. More to this be than you are telling.

RE: Gas station pet peeves

You can't fix rude/stupid. I doubt they would have moved if you had said something about moving to a different pump. Dedicated dieel pumps are best. You are right. The op was rude and is stupid.

RE: Gas station pet peeves

I was at the car wash/gas station today and coming out of the car wash I was going to fuel up my truck. As I'm rolling out of the car wash I am aiming for the only pump that has diesel, as I'm heading that direction some young kid pulls up to the pump to get gas. Now I understand he can use any of pumps that he chooses to use, however if there are six other open pumps available why can't that person who has gas powered vehicle choose those and leave the diesel pumps open for those who need it? Of course as I am parked behind him with my motor running he's just looking at me like " why are you behind me with all these open pumps?" That is why I prefer gas stations that have dedicated diesel pumps versus the combination units. Rant over Dan Wow. Are you really that big of a whiner? Someone pulls in and goes to an availiable pump, but you think you are special and deserving because you have a diesel? Then you cry about here?

RE: Is a Slightly Used Jitterbug Phone Worth Anything?

Nice try, trying to skirt the for sale rules of the forum. How many PM`s have you gotten about your Phone?

RE: Is this Site Declining and losing Members?

The other day I posted a rather innocuous rhetorical question on this forum about how I felt the RV manufacturers were missing what I believe to be a small but significant market segment. To my complete surprise this thread went for 100 posts and over 3300 views. ?? Yet at the same time in Modifications and Upgrades I had posted something really important, or so one would think, about the renovation of my trailer and the re-do of my bathroom where I tore out the entire vanity and sink and replaced them with "Real" fixtures and new flooring, and tiled with real tile the new countertop and backsplash all with photos and explanations. Few were interested. So when posts like these attract many many if not hundreds of participants and a hard information post like my trailer redo goes virtually unnoticed what does that say about what truly interests the most people here? Yet many who praise the site do so citing posts like my bathroom one. Many posters have laid the alleged decline to others imagination and or "Winter", writing something like; "Well it's just winter and it's always like this" Then during Spring and Summer I read the same comment Just insert the appropriate season. "Well everyone is busy actually camping and not on the Forum" There are many of us who full time and are very active on the forum ALL YEAR. And if thought is given to it it would make sense that Forum activity should go UP when folks are not actually camping but getting ready, during those long winter months and when putting the beast away. I think the winter argument is baseless. So it's all about you patting yourself on the back and getting "likes" for your posts? When you don't and you get your "everybody gets a trophy" felling hurt, the site is going downhill and losing membership. :S A little blunt but pretty perceptive! Why play games. I say what I mean.

RE: First choice reservations. Scam???

Sounds like a scam to me !!! We make our own reservations, besides that's part of the fun for us. I know some State parks use an outside contractor, to make reservations, but again you have to call the park to get their info. Good Luck and Happy Camping !! Please explain, exactly how this is a scam.

RE: Is this Site Declining and losing Members?

Just to illustrate what the OP started out with...there is a new thread on the C Forum. New guy...black C and is into alternative living styles..and the first bunch of posters just dump on him. Yes,...this site is diminishing in value. A person posts an answer perhaps? and they get told that they are wrong or even that they are lying. And neither will be the case. Of course people get tired of reading that. And yes, I too buy into the idea that many Mods are biased. Volunteers can have an interesting point of view and by virtue of being volunteers, the owner/mgr of something has no control over them. They just threaten to leave...and often their transgressions are tolerated because no one else wants the job. Gary Haupt Who dumped on him. I didn't see anyone commenting on his lifestyle. The worst thing anyone said sad was why paint it black and it must be hot. How is that dumping?

RE: Mixed Tire PSIs

No matter what IMHO you asking for trouble. Before towing at hiway speeds you really need all 4 tires the same size/rating. X2. One good panic brake and your going to be all over the road. Why, what would cause it to do that? OH gad, think for a minute. Mismatched tires can cause all sorts of handling issues, from wonder/sway to improper loading. If you have ever had a mismatched set of tires on a car you would understand how squirlly things can become. Add a sudden panic situation and you can find yourself in real trouble in a hurry. Oh gad...pure BS. It will make little difference. I have done it and had zero problems.

RE: Recently Removed Thread

But nowdays it seems that if you simply disagree with someone they take offense at that. We seem to have lost the ability to disagree civilly with one another.DJT has led the way on that. Aren't you forgetting BHO. While I may agree or not with either notion, if your quoting me please keep the politics out of the discussion. Thanks Your just sorry Hillary lost.

RE: AM I BLOCKED FROM POSTING ON MY FORUM

...snip... Well today I received a call from a woman who said she was from the VPs office of Camping World and found her rude actually... snip... She then was pretty rude telling me that once something happens to a customer it will get worse often and she just thinks that is what happens and OH WELL.... snip... This woman who's name was BRENDA, needs training on customer service, she had an attitude from the moment she called me, saying "What do you want from us". You get what you give and I'm sure gave the attitude first. You obviously are the customer from hell. Your postings give the impression of a bumbling consumer who just wants to take, take take from a company and refuses to accept any responsibility for their own actions. If you didn't know you were signing up for a Visa from the start then you should find a responsible person to help you with your affairs ...snip... but asked if I wanted a Rec Reward Card and it was explained this card gave me discounts above and beyond Good Sam Card. SO I said yes, and was asked a few other questions that did not seem right but ... and then was issued a VISA card but was not told that, just sent home with receipts that when I read them it did say Camping World Visa ...snip... You signed up for another Visa? If that's the case thanks for proving me right about you.

RE: Recently Removed Thread

My compliments to the Moderator for removing the Trump thread. It had no place here. But I would like to make a suggestion: Since Mexico has become a political football of sorts it might be a good idea to have some well thought out guidelines for when politics and the Mexico forum actually do intersect and are germane to this forum. An example: Lets say The president declares that people should not go to Mexico for vacations. To me this then would directly affect us as RV'rs and should be allowed, with limits, as a point of discussion. The thread that was just removed was a good example of one that definitely should not be allowed. Lets take another example: If tariffs on Mexico result in highly increased costs for RV'ers this may be considered a reasonable topic. My compliments to the moderators and I urge them to give some thought to this issue as I am sure it will rear it's ugly head again and we need a way to have this discussion civilly and with openness as events warrant. Your liberal is showing.

RE: Best Ex-Pat area for full time residency

OUR culture and OUR language is NOT native American......enough said. :S enough said! Whaaaaaaaaaa?...do you need me to fill in all the blanks? I speak many forms of English:W. Doubt if it will make sense even then, but go ahead.

Most people just put soaked wood chips in a tin-foil pouch. Pop a few holes in the top and place directly on the burner.

RE: Best Ex-Pat area for full time residency

... You are a guest wanting to be a local - so you are the one who must change your mindset and way of thinking... If only people would do that when they come to this country! I am not sure that this as you infer is the case at all. I believe that most of the folks that immigrate here or are refugees, want desperately to fit in to their new country and try hard to do so. My bet is you have never lived or worked overseas and had to adapt to a completely different culture, script (such as Khmer or Arabic) language and even things like traffic laws. I can tell you from experience it is NOT EASY. It takes time. I would also remind you that their are still Polish Radio stations in the Chicago and Michigan areas that sprang up with the immigration from that part of Europe in the late 1800's into the early 20th century. All over this country European immigrants and their offspring celebrate their original culture in festivals and religious ceremonies. There is absolutely nothing wrong with keeping in touch with your mother culture. I have lived and worked overseas plenty. 26 years in the Air Force. More than 1/2 of that overseas and plenty of time in the middle east, Europe and Asia, so that is a bet you would lose. You are right it is not easy but, from my experience the local citizenry will respond and respect you more if you just try. The point is many don't even try when they come here, they expect us to change to them...NOT RIGHT.
