RE: Elkhart Quadra Step

Aw c'mon, they're steps for cryin' out loud. You walk up, you walk down. :) And not all good things cost more money, sometimes just the ones with a better marketing department. :) If you walk up and down a set of glow steps and compare them to non supported steps you will see there is a big difference. Sometimes someone figures out a way to build a better mouse trap. They are not marketing the same old dangling steps. They have come out with a game changing idea/product. Those who own GSR's understand those who don't can only imagine. Since I only installed them yesterday I haven't had too much experience, but I will say my wife always complained the old steps made her knee hurt and after using the GSR yesterday she had no knee pain. That is huge for us. They are extremely stable. Another vote for the GSR. They are better than the OEM steps on my 5er. Very stable and 1st step up is much easier to step up on.. I would highly recommend them. Jim

Sounds like you been staying busy Jon. I mowed Thursday, and for first time since we've been at our camp, it rained more than an hour Today, partly cloudy, high of 52, that was earlier, it's now 46 degrees and wind is blowing (2:25pm.. EST). Supposed to clear up tomorrow, sunny and a high of 62. Hope all of you are well and having a great day Jim

RE: How far have you traveled to buy/pickup your rig?

About 32 miles was the longest distance we've driven to purchase an RV. Shortest distance, about 10 miles. Always got great deals and good service. Jim

RE: Own a Jeep? Over 250K recalled for airbags/fire hazard

It's sad that on these forums there appears to literally MY be hatred towards some who own certain types of trucks or cars. With all that is going on in the world today and right here in the United States, what type vehicle one owns should really be irrelevant. I owned Chevy trucks from 1975 through mid 2010, then purchased my first ever Dodge truck, and almost immediately was called a "fanboy"?!? Not that it matters, but I find it hard to believe how people go after others about what brand truck they own. I've seen recalls on quite a few. I owned Jeeps for 30 plus years, never an issue with any of them. I've owned Chevys, Pontiacs, Chrysler, Hondas, Nissan, Mazda, Mitsubishi Subaru, Volvo, a Renault and Ford sedans.... never any big issues. Never thought to call people names for what they owned, or tried to start an argument as to which is the best UNTIL I joined this forum in 2005. WOW, the ugliness, the vehement hatred that I see some expouse on others. It's gotten really old, but I guess it's life as we know it in 2016. Information as OP made was fine, but added that it was "one of many" for FCA. It may even be true, but the wording wasn't to inform as much as it was to instigate an argument from the get go:h , and it worked, the ugliness started again. Reminds me of when I was a kid in elementary school and we'd get into name calling for one reason or another, but we WERE kids back then. Jim

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

I'll defer any comment on weather to Al Gore????. 46 this morning, supposed to get up to 72 today and sunny. Kathy and I are loving the full timing solitude of living in the middle of nowhere. Beautiful country, no traffic, . Weather will dictate how long we stay here in the next month or so and when we will head south. Hope all of you are well and hope you have a great day. Jim

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

Got down to 43 here this morn. Next 6-7 days show lows in the low 40's with high in upper 60's to low 70's. Mostly sunny with not much chance of rain.. I can live with that. Been fulltiming for 6 weeks now and loving it. No neighbors except for a friend and his wife that come to their camp every weekend, but will probably only keep their 5er up here till the end of the month. WHEN we pull out, we'll head to or around the Houston TX area to spend the winter, then come back to our camp in the spring... that's the plan anyway. Hope all of you are OK, and hope you all have a great day. Jim

RE: What is your longest term of ownership???

OPs title was, "What is your longest term of ownership". Been buying RVs since 75'. Don't need a list to say the longest I owned one was an '06 HR Presidential Suite 37RLQ for a tad over 10 years. Now fulltiming in sig 5er.... Only time will tell on this one. Jim I think a lot of us posted the list just to paint a bit of a picture of length of ownership. Now, if we were talking trucks I think you would have us all beat! :B PS nice to see you posting; I haven't seen much from you lately. True about the trucks:)...Been trying hard to get use to retirement. But I'm going to give it my best:B Jim

RE: G-Rated Tire Recommendations

Off topic a tad... But I'd recommend the G rated Sailuns also. I reported on them several years ago as being one of the very few Chinese tire manufacturers that are ISO TS16969 certified. Same certification met by them that my manufacturing plant also meets yearly to compete globally and attest to a Quality product! I'm giving myself a pat on the back because I was right about these tires manufactured in China when most wouldn't even accept these at first.. But the tires have proven out and I feel all warm and fuzzy about that:B Three years of good reports have proven out!! A great price for a VERY good tire! Jim

RE: Rig destroyed today!

We received the insurance checks today from MetLife for the truck and the trailer. They were a wonderful company to work with.. Great to hear Jim, I looked at that as, "one less thing to worry about". At least, though I wished it had never happened to either of us, or anyone for that matter, that our insurance companies came through for us, so we KNOW much more about them now. We made the right choice Hope all goes well for you and your family here on it! Jim

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

Just the opposite here Jon... Lost 47.5# since my stroke last August. Weighed 140.2 this morning. Gained a little, but haven't had much of an appetite recently. Still fighting weak left leg and left arm. Also soreness in upper back. Been keeping busy with chores around here, and of course some fishing on the river. Been fulltiming since Aug. 24th and loving it. Hasn't rained HERE but ONE time for about 45 mins since we've been here. Calling for some this week.. We DO need it. Hope all of you are well, and I hope you have a great day Jim

RE: Rig destroyed today!

Sorry to hear about the fire and I'm glad no one was hurt. Anyways this is a primary example what insurance is for.. Agree..

RE: Rig destroyed today!

We saw the aftermath, 24 people drowned in the WV flooding... Couldn't get to our camper in time, was cut off by high waters, flooding roads all around. Was not literally "in it",like you all were... Can't relate to that and hope it becomes a distant memory to you. It was losing everything we had in and around, our soon to be fulltimers unit. Lost somethings that can never be replaced, pictures of family throughout our life, etc... Can't image what you went through and am thankful no one was hurt. It's still scary to us, we keep a vigilant eye on conditions of the river here. I was relating more to the loss of everything.. Wasn't much we could do... Still recovering from the stroke I had last August and last of this June, early July, it became a bit overwhelming to my wife and I, ( she had just had hip replacement surgery). I hope all goes well for you and yours here on out and y'all can work through the scary parts of it. Take care buddy, Jim

RE: Rig destroyed today!

Jim, so very sorry to hear about your loss, . Thank the Lord, no one was hurt! My wife and I can relate to a degree. We had a 2016 Jayco Seismic parked on our lot in WV. Loading it up with trips back and forth from NC to our camp getting ready to fulltime, when a flood on June 24th, 3rd worse ever and river rising faster than anyone could remember, totaled our Jayco.. Moved the unit 5-6' on the pad and water got 5' deep inside the camper, about 10" up on the bed.. We lost EVERYTHING.. No fire, but mud, rancid, nasty water., couldn't walk on the property, water and mud everywhere! When we got inside the unit, it was covered with mud, water, stink... Had to leave, wasn't healthy! Never seen anything like it. BUT, like you, insurance covered full amount and in 2 weeks, we had money to purchase camper in sig Glad no one was hurt and sorry you lost all your possessions that were in your 5er. But thank goodness, insurance did you right and you can make some new memories. Take care buddy, Jim

RE: Looking at 2 fifth wheels ?

Looks like the Jayco is the answer or it would be to me. Hope so for you. chevman X2 Larry

RE: B&W Customer Service

I owned Reese 5th fifth wheel hitches for years and years... A 16K slider and a 20k signature series... No problems and good hitches, BUT, I DID have to replace small parts on occasions, springs, rubber stops, a rebuild kit.. No big deal, My B&W is awesome and I've been very happy with it.. No calls to B&W, too new I guess... Have heard A LOT of good about there service after the sale. Jim

RE: Best 5ER for full timer?

Pebbles3657, I just sent you a PM, check it out. Mobile Suite RVs have stacked and welded triple tubular frame chassis. The tubular frame stacks up to 15". MS units aren't cheap, nor are a lot of used ones, but he could get lucky, so good idea :) Jim

RE: Does CW still sell DRV MS line?

^^^Thank you.

RE: Does CW still sell DRV MS line?

They were great to me and took care of Thor issues. Just curious if CW will honor my extended warranty. If they're not working with MS units anymore, I may need to get a refund. I purchased my 2016 in July... They had 6 or 7 still on the lot... NO ONE told me they weren't going to carry them and sold me the extended warranty and told me ANY CW would work on my unit, if need be... Good Sam Admistrstors. I'm an Elite member and also have 4 yr GS ERS, DUE TO ME PURCHASING THE MS 36RSSB3. I will get you my number tomorrow. I better get some truthful answers on this
