RE: Buying online wholesale-service local

Was at another dealer today , tried using the couch numbers as leverage... They said that couch numbers are not good to use... When the unit comes in to them , they turn it around to you.. No In servicing.. No prep... No nothing....as is....?

Buying online wholesale-service local

Really trying to decide on buying a Cedar Creek 38RD from Jeff Couch's RV Nation , but hesitant because of local service... Local folks cannot come close to the dollars , if I pull the trigger , it would be close to $9,000.00 savings to me. I called local service folks and said I was being transferred for work , and would they be able to become my home service facility... Was told by BOTH dealers close that they will NOT work on any trailer they do not sell.. This has me concerned... What do you all do ????

RE: Removing bugs from front cap

After you have it cleaned off put on Rejex, then you can wash them off with a hose! Would have to see it to believe it. Maybe you have different bugs in AZ. No , it does work that good... Well almost that good,, I use Rejex and ran down Florida during Love Bug season without knowing.... I would say that maybe 75%-80% came off with the hose...

RE: Bedrug Review.. An Opinion..

I had one installed in my new truck last May... It is by far the best bed liner to date that I have had... It can get soaked completely and dry all the way within 30 minutes... no stain... love it

RE: Cedar Creek Touring Edition (Full Body Paint)

Next question...Do Cedar Creeks have either a option or a basement cable/satellite connection for a TV? I was watching the Jensen video, and they claimed there were three distinct zones (Den, Bedroom & Outside that could be configured for different output (now THAT is handy!) So...it would REALLY be handy if DW and her friends could be in the Coach watching a movie while other folks are sitting outside watching a football game! That only seems possible though if there is provision for a TV hookup outside. Or?? I miss led you... There is a HOOK UP for a TV... not an actual tv.. And by the way , I was 100% honest with them... I asked if they matched the online super wholesalers... they explained why they wont MATCH (mainly overhead)but said CLOSE ..I agreed BUT they know that I have no issues taking a ride to save...

RE: Cedar Creek Touring Edition (Full Body Paint)

Soooo mildly hijacking my own thread....Where did you buy your Cedar Creek? Local or one of those mega-stores (Jeff Crouch's RV Nation is one I have spoke to) They (Jeff Couch) have very attractive numbers on Both the 38RD and the 38FL... I am curious also as I am heading to Richmond tomorrow for the race and plan on stopping in to see both those floor plans at Reines RV.. It just opened in Ashland.. $15,000.00 difference in the advertised price ..not actual selling price..

RE: Butyl tape or Putty tape?

yes, its the worry freak. I am heading to dealer in a little bit so i can redo that trim that the mobile guy did.. I am gonna either put butyl tape under the trim or putty tape.. and then a bead of pro-flex on top... the dealer says they use putty tape on everything and told me not to use black butyl(thats only color they have).. before i mess this up, am i better off with butyl tape or white putty tape? Me thinks you need to stop worrying so much and start enjoying that camper! ! ! The pictures you posted yesterday looked waterproof... and I would use Butyl tape ... but that's just me....

RE: Remove flat screen TV.

If it is built into the cabinet , you may have to take that apart on one side to gain access to the rear of the TV..

RE: Cedar Creek Touring Edition (Full Body Paint)

Thanks for the quick replies folks! I was pretty convinced that Full Body Paint was the way to go but DW was balking at the price...not so much now that she has seen your comments :D WOW ! ! I am impressed... all it took was some input from us to put her over the top?? have her call my DW . .!!

RE: awesome black streak remover

On average black streaks, try WD-40. As long as the streaks haven't been baked on for years, the stuff works! Does it remove the wax also ?? how about the finish , does it feel like oil when touching the fiberglass??

RE: Big horn ordering question

Is Goodyear G rated tires worth $2323 when it comes with G rated tires? Back in 2010 I bought 4 17.5" aluminum wheels complete with center caps and lug nuts with Michelin XTA 215/75R17.5 tires (rated 4,805 lbs @ 120 PSIG) mounted and balanced and shipped to me for about that price. Obviously, I think $2,323 for a mere tire upgrade is absurd! By the way, I used these wheels and tires to replace my 16" Goodyear G614 RSTs on my 2004 Mobile Suites 36RE3. The 17.5" tires were actually about a 1/2" smaller in diameter than the G614s, so they will fit anywhere the LT235/85R16 G614s (rated 3,750 lbs @ 110 PSIG) will. So to put it in perspective, you could probably buy a 17.5" wheel/tire package, sell the OEM tires & wheels and have a far more capable, worry free wheel & tire setup for the $2,323 you're being charged for the upgrade to G614s. I got almost 32% off of MSRP on our 2014 Mobile Suites from a dealer ~1000 miles from our home. If Camping World isn't approaching a 25% to 30% discount, it would be worth your while to shop around for other dealers Rusty I just did that upgrade - and it was $3200.00 to me.. I would be surprised if anybody actually paid full price for that option from an RV dealer... $2300.00... >??

RE: Big horn ordering question

#1- yes to the G rated G614's ... But at that price, save your money and buy yourself... That is if you plan on paying MSRP for those.... Haggle them into the deal.. #2- I went with the 12-1/4 X 3-3/8" brakes and there is a nice difference... I would suggest you go that route also....

RE: New Montana question

At a time when some of the other brands are suffering badly from fade on the colored fiberglass caps, pealing graphics doesn't sound so bad anymore! True..... The NEW caps worth anything are being automotive painted and clear coated... That should help with the fading ..... If buying new , ask for the procedures for front and rear caps.... Old school colored caps were color infused Gelcoat/fiberglass...thus the fade factor

RE: Will Single A/C cut it?

1. Buy a 5000 BTU window AC locally, $125 2. When you get to you destination, install it in the emergency exit in your RV at the campsite. (you have already made a bracket from wood for this). Tape any "holes" with duct tape. Run the power cord outside through the same opening. 3. Plug into the pedestal and turn on the 2nd AC 4. If an emergency, push the AC out to the ground and bail out as usual 5. Enjoy. We have been in BTW - we are looking at Fleetwood, Winnebago and one Jayco. Any comments are welcome good or bad. Thanks I assume this was a joke ?? :h. I don't suggest anybody fills their emergency exits with big,bulky AC units....

RE: Proof that wind is the big factor in MPG.

RE: awesome black streak remover

I cringe every time I need to use a product like that because it means that I will have to wax it again soon. I have not met a product that removed black streaks without removing wax... I try to keep my roof that much cleaner so I can limit the amount I use them.

RE: New Montana question

This has been a long, LONG lasting issue with Keystone products, not just Montanas, with decals over fiberglass. Don't know of any real solution, although I know Montana/Keystone will give you replacement decals when they get really bad. Still is costly or time consuming to replace them. Look on the Montana Owner's Club forum and you'll find tons of threads & posts about this. The only thing I've heard that is supposed to actually help is Aerospace 303 applied every three to six months, but I've never seen any factual evidence of this. It IS a really good protectant though. My best friend has a Cougar that lost alot of its decals within 2-3 years.. He has called Keystone several times with no luck getting replacements... He is at the point now that he is trying to get rid of all the ghosting and have a plain white TT with no decals... Its a 2009

RE: 2016 Montana fifthwheel rear cap

Thanks Mile High! But ... other than "looks", is there anything "functional" with this type of end camp that is missing or lacking from the "old school" style. In other words, are there any functional advantages to this type of end-cap? I think the rear caps help with mileage by changing the air currents vs a square back. Not 100% sure of that, but I remember reading it somewhere. Probably not enough to even register or notice... The big trucks are also now adding skirting on the rear of the trailers , kinda shaped like a moulded rear cap but super sized.. I believe they are operated by a cable system? They say it's for aerodynamics .. I like them because I like them... And they look nice to me and DW...
