RE: credit card limit

The 5% cash rebate we get on just our fuel purchases buts us well ahead of paying in cash or by check. And could you tell me what card that would be?

RE: credit card limit

Guess we need to begin carrying large amounts of cash That's what I was doing but hoping for Alaska next year...don't wish to carry that much in cash. Suppose to get 3% cash back on fuel with this card, that would beat the cash discounts.

credit card limit

On a recent trip I tried out a new Nationwide credit card. At a couple of gas stations saw signs on the pumps spelling out money limits on certain card. One station stopped at $75 but would not retake card. At one station stopped at $75 but let me run another $75 after rerunning card. At a truck stop ran over $175 and did not stop. Has anyone been able to have their credit limit upped when using it for fuel?

RE: Anybody use " RV Warranty Forever" service?

NC Roamer, What is spelled out as "lifetime"? What inspections are mandatory?

diesel I95 Ga,FL

Going to need diesel along I95 in Ga or Fl. Either state cheaper than the other or not worth thinking about? Thanx!

RE: Canoe and 5th wheel

I just purchased a Sea Eagle 370 to take with us. I spent the last three years of thinking the Porta-bote way but I think that the Sea Eagle is going to be it. I was going to go the front hitch way but I am not interested to see all the scenery in the U.S while driving with a post in it.

RE: Anybody use " RV Warranty Forever" service?

Don't have it but would like to know what are the costs? Nothing up front? How much for the inspection? Where are the inspectors? What if the find a `problem'? Who fixes it? How much to fix it, if any? Is everyone nationwide? I have no interest in extended warranties for ANYTHING but am always interested in "new" business models. Checking around the internet I have found that this is not a warranty you buy, it is a "standard feature" on all new RVs(and some used) sold by a participating dealer. The customer must bring the RV back yearly for inspection and maintenance. Think that there won't be a good size bill for "needed" maintenance? Also I won't list the stuff not covered but the one that stuck out(catch that?) was slides weren't covered, but of course the buyer can always buy another extended warranty to cover what is not covered by the "lifetime" warranty. Whose or what lifetime I'm not sure. Telling the RV buyer that this RV has a lifetime warranty is just another selling gimmick. Many will buy that particular RV because of the warranty. I am not one of many.

RE: Still have water heater issue.

You have a bad check valve. IF they have 3 valves, which husband says they have, there would not be a check valve. Well top valve is open. Bottom valve is open. Middle valve is closed. Now no water at all coming out of the hot water taps. Cold water taps OK. This though gives a thought that perhaps there is a check valve. Has OP checked{by overflow valve) to see that there is hot water in the tank?

RE: Camping World Katy TX. BEWARE

Most fine print on work contracts indicate they are not responsible. Not just at CW but many places. They can print whatever they wish, doesn't make it legal.

RE: Camping World Katy TX. BEWARE

I just wonder how you, or anybody else, would have not noticed that during a whole weekend. x2. That statement is a very hard one to believe. Just seems impossible someone could not notice that over a weekend.

RE: Gas prices falling!

Good thing is we get only a small percentage of our oil from international sources outside of N America. Oil is a world wide commodity, doesn't much matter where the oil comes from.

RE: fifth wheel backing

Most people over steer to start and then fail to correct in time. I think that comes from not pulling far enough ahead. My 28 foot fifth wheel is much easier backing up than my 10 foot utility trailer.

RE: Can't enter Safe Mode

Pressing it once will work if you hit it at exactly the right time. If you miss the correct time, and just hold the key down, then it will just go ahead and boot. That's why you press the key repeatedly: you don't have to know the exact time to press the key. I can't follow this logic. You're implying the MS directions are wrong? Like they never were before? This is the way I've always done it.

RE: Duramax Issue

Having the same truck, sure hate to hear of your problems and being far from home always seems to compound the problem. Being at least a year and 15000 miles out of warranty, it would have been nice of Gm to help but I understand their position. I have always used OEM fuel filters and changed them at the recommended 15k mile intervals. Having the same truck, I don't believe this is the "recommended interval" for fuel filter. I use the fuel monitor and usually change it at 20%. To avoid a long story, last year truck went into a reduced power mode about 6 miles after refueling. Turned out it was a plugged fuel filter, the fuel monitor reading 0%. I now keep fuel receipt until next fill up.

RE: Installing TPMS sensors on my brand new F-450 truck

Well, the TPMS sure has turned out to be worth it, one of the dually tires has gone down in the cold a lot more than the other three so I will be watching it. Couldn't tell by looking but about 20# difference is sure to cause problems for tire wear at least. Are they pass thru sensors?

RE: Where should we go & what should we see?

Unless you all are real cavers, one day at Mammoth... While Mammoth Cave is "mammoth", if you wish to see formations visit Diamond Caverns which is close by.

RE: PVC vs EPDM roof for 5er

You should have a 12 yr warranty with any roof product. If they install it correctly then it should be good for a minimum of 12 yrs. Do you plan to keep the 5'er longer? Great selling point, but the warranty is about worthless. The stuff is fairly cheap and of course the warranty is pro-rated. Installation is not included. After 5 years you not recover enough to pay to have it taken off. I am talking about the EPDM. Don't know about the others.

RE: TV tire pressure?

I asked the Dodge dealership and was told no change in tire pressure for towing for my 2014 Ram 1500. Which is what my tire manufacturer recommended. But.......
