RE: Now I've seen it all...

I se it as neat but you still need to learn how to use it. What does it eliminate you now turn the knob vs. the wheel. 4x4 are great for bad/snowy weather however I still see lots of 4x4's in ditches on the roads side and I'm always amazed how they manage to get there. At some point on some level you still have to learn how to drive in bad weather or back up a trailer. If the system requires human input than someone still needs to learn how to use it. I see this is a step towards full automation, which will be a real step forward vs. a band-aid.

RE: New Propride

Not a major issue. Lube the stinger. It will make it easier to insert and remove. Once the hitch get some wear the issue will subside.

RE: Samsung Galaxy S 6 vs Apple iPhone 6?

They are both great phones. You can find all the reviews you want online. Just pick one. All you'll get here are posts from people with self esteem issues insisting you buy the same thing they did so they will feel more validated in their decision. Agreed While the operating systems maybe different the capabilities of the Iphone 6 and S6 are the same. Ultimately choices and competition are good for the consumer.

RE: Champion 75531i 3100w Inverter/Generator Initial Review

Doesn't it damage the generator to run High demand things, such as AC, with Eco mode ON? I have the Champion 3000i and the manual says NOT to use Eco mode with the AC on.I suppose if you tried to operate a 13-15 amp circular saw (inductive load similar to an a/c compressor) in a construction environment, where you're cycling hundreds of times day, that could potentially cause "damage" with the Eco mode on. The constant ramping up and down of engine RPM's (and inrush current) would definitely stress components. FWIW, I've run my a/c with a Champion 75531i (Eco mode on) for days at a time with no issues. I always enjoy that little bit of reprieve from the noise when the compressor turns off. In any case, if it concerns you, and you don't mind the increased wear & tear (higher engine RPM), sound level, and fuel consumption that results from operating a generator with the Eco mode off, then by all means do so. Given a choice I think I'd trust the manual.

RE: Disappointed - Just Venting

Based on those failures I would certainly closely watch the voltages when you are plugged in. Do you use a plug in volt meter to ensure there are no voltage drops. A good surge protector would also be a wise purchase to monitor the incoming voltage. Your premature appliance failure could be just bad luck, but I suspect there is an underlying cause.

RE: Champion 75531i 3100w Inverter/Generator Initial Review

Hi, I'm not in the least surpized. Eco mode defaults to 1/4 output and it takes a finite amount of time for the engine to "spool up". Now, if you had a hybrid inverter, you could quite probably run the air conditioner on a single 2k genny. The EU3000iS a distant 3rd. Surprisingly, one EU2000i with the Eco mode off can produce as much, sometimes slightly more, inrush current than an EU3000iS with the Eco mode on. I'm not sure I understand the whole economy mode logic. If you need full power use full power . If you want less power use economy mode. Is your thought/complaint economy mode is too economical and saves too much fuel?

RE: My thoughts on the "Rapid Response Team"

Camping World is not perfect. No retailer is. I'm waiting for a 3rd item from Amazon right now the last 2 came in broken. Do you think anyone can check to ensure next one won't be broken. Of course not. Nevertheless I continue to shop with Amazon because for the most part things are correct. Same with CW we only same the complaints. Honestly some of the complaints are legit some are not. Cw conducts hundreds of transaction daily. Thousands weekly.Things go wrong. In the end CW provides this forum a means for consumers to contact CW. If CW really didn't care they would not provide the various CW and GS forums. Those forums are simply another means to contact CW/ Marcus via the rapid response team. CW does not have to air their dirty laundry however they are willing to do it if it will ultimately help resolve a customer issue. The CW & GS complaint forums have not been around forever. I give them credit for giving consumers a open complaint line

RE: If you cannot beat them join them

I will add I like the bright color scheme with lots of natural light. although I hope they did not forget the air conditioner. I don't see one. Maybe the wise Europeans have a better place for the A/C unit? I trust it's not taking up valuable storage space!

RE: If you cannot beat them join them

That is a classic RV marketing picture. Sure it looks great but how functional is it. Are we all going to sit at the table and look at each other? Is that table for eating? Doesn't look to be positioned very well if it is? Do we all sit down and get up together or do we get up and let people in and out? Oh I get it, it's for wine and cherries! I do like the moon roof as long as it does not leak. The rest of the floor plan is not very functional......But it looks nice:S The dinette in this trailer reflects the European tastes and use. Mealtime is one for gathering and eating several smaller courses at a time. They prefer to actually LOOK AT each other and talk and share food, not just stuff their faces while texting or playing games on their phones. (although this has become a worldwide phenomenon). It's a very nice floorplan and the styling is great. I don't mind looking at each other and conversation. But I want a seat that can support my back when sitting there. I also want easy access to my seat. The layout has good intentions but lacks functionality. Like most brochure photos, It has more style than substance. U.S. floorplans can also go down this same road. Many dinette booths are hard to get in and out of, but actually sitting at the table is not a challenge. The lounge seating and table don't match up very well

RE: Campground Cape Cod Mass

I went to Scusset beach a few years ago. Great place however I understand it is going through some renovations and there was a major issue with electric at the park. I'm not sure of its current status. According to the link provided by Dave & Jeanette they are doing major renovations, and the campground will reopen in phases. Thanks for the link . Good info

RE: Champion 75531i 3100w Inverter/Generator Initial Review

Nice report but if ambient temps were 73ยบ the A/C was not really working hard. See how things go when it's 85-90 with some humidity and A/C is really chugging. Ambient temps. can have a significant effect.

RE: RV Parks Near Alexandria VA. or DC.

Try Pohick Bay much closer than Cherry Hill. Cherry Hill is a good choice for touring DC but if you want to be in Northern VA,Pohick Bay is a much better location. Prince William Forest is also a decent option a little further south Pohick Bay Prince William Forest

RE: Terrible Experience

While I feel your pain. having to pay a $20 guest fee does not constitute a terrible experience. If the place is that bad I certainly would not stay and endure a terrible experience for a month.

RE: Class A MH vs 5th wheel/pu truck

The class A will always be more convenient and easier to set up.

RE: What did you find you did not need?

All the stuff I used to put out when I pulled into a CG, matt, tables, awning lights, chairs, bbq etc.etc. After a few years on the road full time all that nonsense wears off especially when you have to put it all away each time you move! I gave it all away to fellow campers in my travels. Now it's pull in, put in park and ONE chair goes outside that's it! :C I 'm not a full timer but I've learned not to pull out all the junk each time as well.

RE: Do you or don't you?

We use the entire bathroom exclusively. We never even look at the PUBLIC bath houses. Since they are PUBLIC they can only be so clean.:S use the pool??? My DW would get a kick out of your post. She swears many campers just rinse off in the pool vs. taking a shower. For the record I do use the pool. I'm sure some pools are more sanitary than others. Since I can't bring my own pool along I have no choice by to use the public pools. However I do have my own full bathroom and have no need or desire to use the public CG bathrooms.

RE: Dump Station Locator

Rest Stop I-95 in Laurel has one. You maybe able to dump into your friends clean out at their house.

RE: Where do you carry/store large cooler?

I put my big cooler just inside the front entry door and use the first in last out approach. I am slowly coming to realize that I don't need that huge cooler every trip. I have stated to focus on how many drinks we really need and began to reduce the amount of stuff we bring. I carried the huge cooler more out of habit than actual need.
