RE: Where do you boondock.

Keep in mid folks if you are too far off the main road your Road Service will NOT tow you out. You're on your own and it could get expensive. Happy trails,

RE: prime time mfg

My husband and I purchased a new 2015 Sanibel 3601 from our local dealer, General RV in Dover, FL, on Feb. 10, 2015 and it was presented to us with a problem with the bedroom slide not fully closing. The service manager tried to correct what he said he perceived as "just needs adjusting" and we proceeded with signing our contract. His effort did not fix the problem so we left it at the dealership. I called General RV on Feb. 11 and was told it was being serviced. I also received email that morning that indicated they had the unit and were looking for a solution to the problem. On Feb. 12, I spoke with the general manager and service manager and was told that they needed further direction from Prime Time. That was General Rv's last communication with us, even though I'd left a message asking that someone call us. On Feb. 16, I spoke with Prime Time and they said that they'd just received the request for warranty service and approved it. During the conversation, the gentleman, Rick, apologized for the problem we had, but also said something about the request saying that "customer brought it back after 2 days". Needless to say, we were furious that we would be accused of taking the unit off the lot and possibly causing damage to the slide. I called Forest River and spoke to Roger Stickel. He was apologetic also about our problem but when I mentioned I didn't like being accused, he said there was nothing on his copy of the warranty request that indicated we had taken possession. My husband and I are still trying to understand what's happening here. Mr. Stickel said he would be in touch with me on Tues. Feb. 24. The only communication I've received from General RV is a message on Feb. 18 that our "rails" were on order. - I will post a followup when I hear from Mr. Stickel on Feb. 24. - We are also looking for a plausible explanation for how our new rv was not inspected for highly visible defects before it was presented to us. We'd paid $997 to the dealer for a PDI and we truly don't believe a slide problem as great as this was caused by moving the unit from the back of the lot to the customer pick up area. Needless to say, we've lost some trust in the dealership. Now we're wondering if we can trust Prime Time and/or Forest River to help make this right for us. All we want is an undamaged, fully inspected Sanibel 3601. Our first payment is due on 3/27 and, at this point, we aren't certain we'll have an rv by then. =========================== I've bought two trailers from General RV in Wixom, Michigan. A Jayco Eagle and a Keystone. They're service is only mediocre. You constantly have to stay after them for service. Good luck,

RE: Flipjack - Any experience with them?

I had it for a couple of years. Wouldn't buy another though. It extends by use of gravity (could hang up). You have to be sure it has "locked" itself before raising the tongue. It allows more movement (not a stable as a block of wood). Just my experience...

RE: Do they make such-a-thing?

quote=Ron3rd As to the door question, I wouldn't own a trailer with only 1 door. You'll find that second door comes in very, very handy.Our first trailer had 2 doors, which we did not know the importance of at first; we do now./quote ================================= Understandable with your 3001W floorplan. If someone's in the bathroom then the only bedroom entry is thru the outside door. We had a 2 door Jayco Eagle 322FKS. To me the second door was wasted space.. I do like the Rockwood 3029W floorplan.

Rockwood Windjammer roof

Does anyone know if the Windjammers roof material Alpha Ply rolls over and is attached at the top of the sidewalls like on the Rockwood Ultra Lite Signature Series. I'm concerned about any seams on the top of the roof. The above hyperlink also has a video on how the roof is applied to trailers. Many thanks,

RE: Hemi 6.4 or Cummins

Diesel here in the Detroit area is running $2.95 and up a gallon. Regular gas is $2.08. Diesel usually is .80 to $1.00 more a gallon than diesel around here..

RE: Flint Michigan Show

I spoke with my elderly lol. My dad said it's been years since he went to one at Perani Center and he doesn't think they even have RV show there anymore. I went on the Perani website and didn't see it listed.he did say there is a show this weekend at the Birch Run Expo in Birch Run. He's going there tomorrow to scope it out. Wish I didn't have to work, I'd go with him :( ========================== Can't make the Birch Run show. Here's the website Birch Run Could make the Flint show if it looks big enough. Here's the Flint show. Flint Show

RE: Flint Michigan Show

Haven't been there in several years. Last time I went it was fairly large, it was in both areas of the IMA bulding. I don't think it is as big as the Novi show. I don't think it is as expensive either. My parents usually go, I'll check with them when I do my "elderly well being check" (Please don't take offense to that, its a joke between my dad and me). ================================ No offense taken. I'm a senior and understand :B Do get back as we may attend that show. Happy trails,

Flint Michigan Show

Noticed there's a RV Show going on in Flint, Michigan on March 19th to 22nd. Was wondering if anyone knows anything about it. Lots of dealers there? Very large? Overall impression? Many thanks,

RE: Hemi 6.4 or Cummins

......... The 6.4 did perform well for what it is, it managed to average just under 9 MPG for the 650 miles I had it. My CTD averages 11+ MPG, even with a heavier foot. If you want further info, PM me with your phone # and I'll be happy to answer any questions. ============================ With my Cummins diesel I consistently got 10 MPG hauling a trailer. Even with my older 5.9 Cummins. Nothing but a Hemi from now on...

RE: Hemi 6.4 or Cummins

If I remember right the 6.4 is a $1000 adder over the 5.7 Hemi. Either one would haul that trailer.

RE: Any new lacrosse owners?

First off you should determine the MSRP price of your trailer with all options. Then figure about 30% off that price plus tax & plates. Find 3 or 4 Lacrosse dealers and request a quote. Someone is bound to give you the MSRP and then their discount (??) price. It took me a while of negotiating with various dealers to get the price down and finally General in Wixom beat their price. And I did receive three different quotes from General each of which had a lower price. Good luck,

RE: Camping In Snow

See my signature below? Last Feb 2014 we flipped the trailer and totaled the 2500 Megacab diesel on black ice ( Going South on I-75 at the Michigan- Ohio border). Right now we are negotiating a Rockwood 3029W trailer. I can guarantee you it will never be driven on snow/ice. We didn't see the black ice until to late. Police & semi's also slid all over the place that day. Very scary but thank God no one was hurt. Happy trails,

RE: Need Ideas for New Trailer

We are looking to upgrade to a larger travel trailer and would like to upgrade amenities as well. We want to be able to prepare a lunch (get to the refer and sink), sit while eating and be able to use the bathroom all with the slideout/s in. We like the Wind River 250RDSW.Thanks ================================== Don't let using the facilities be your determining factor. Out first trailer we could get at everything without extending the slides BUT we found over the years we can always extend the slides for a quick lunch be it a parking lot- rest stop- truck stop- whatever. Get the floorplan you'll be happy with. Good luck,

RE: Tongue blocks

You could get one of these Jack stand or one of these Fastway Flip Jack or this 8 inch extension foot pad: Foot-Pad Finally if your getting older like me then get one of these 24 inch electric jacks. Electric Jack Happy trails,

RE: RV Direct & MSRP's!

I bought local but got my dealer to match a deal from rvwholesalers.com. ================================== Now that's the way to purchase an RV. Try your best to go through your local dealer. We do want these guys to stay in business. Happy trails,

RE: Furnace Troubleshooting

ill ck thermostat the way opnspaces suggested first. then go from there and ck regulator. my tanks are newly refilled and my stove works. so ill figure out a way to bypass regulator on trailer with propane line that has regulator that i used for bench test. ======================== Burners may still work with a bad regulator. Either test the regulator or turn on your high volume burner(stove) and see if you noticed a difference between that and the other regular (2) burners. That was my friends problem... Happy trails,

RE: 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 28BHS Thermal and Elite Package

I think I found the perfect jayco 28bhs. It has the impressive 90 gallon fresh water tank and thermal package. Perfect state park extended season camper. Should I pull the trigger? ============ Don't forget that 90 gallons of water will add about 745 pounds of weight to your trailer. Also Forest River trailers & 5th wheelers have a 2nd year warranty available for $150. Happy trails,
