RE: Rv Park Admission Fee

I don't believe I've ever been to a park that DOESN'T charge a visitor fee.

RE: Closed posts

While I too appreciate the efforts of the Moderators I feel in this case and a few others they jump too fast to close a post. We are all adults presumably here and a little back and forth debate isnt going to hurt anyone. In fact it can be enlightening. In the case of job postings comments aimed at the possible drawbacks of the financial aspect of the offer could help someone re think a possible mistake and should not be taken as idle criticism. There are some really awful positions posted at times. (financially speaking) People are still free to make their own judgments and act accordingly. I for one would appreciate less Nanny-ism and a bit more tolerance of debate and criticism. I do not need to be protected from those that may disagree with me. However Spam, Foul language, personal attacks, racial, sexual and other clearly offensive comments should be banned. This is what I would hope the moderators would concentrate on. It all depends on whether you actually want employers to continue to post here in the forum or not. Some people only came here to post about how this isn't "paying" enough. These people who are only here to******all over these opportunities make employers feel unwelcome and not want to post here anymore. People frequenting here will miss out.

RE: How do you use hydaulic levelers?

Check your fluid level. If the fluid is low, the jack could still extract but might not provide much strength.

RE: Bad Customer Service

Being almost pounced on by the closest salesperson the instant I walk onto a lot is a huge turn off for me. However, at some point, it's not bad practice for one to come out and let their presence known, at least to be the one to stake claim on my sale. A couple of hours - a little much if you ask me. Don't follow me around, but at least pop by so say that they noticed me and they're there if I need anything. If they're not interested in the sell, I'm not terribly interested in the buy unless there is a fantastic deal to be had.

RE: So confused I was stranded

Maybe it's just me, but doesn't sound like a connection thing to me at all. I'm going to say that your inverter is probably bad or the in-line fuse blown. You ran the genny for 2 days, then started the RV, turned it off and then kept the genny running. Maybe you had just enough juice left in the batteries to turn the engine over the first time, but not enough to get it going the second time. If the inverter isn't getting juice to the batteries, the generator slowly drains them, much like the car engine would if your alternator stopped working. If all your batteries, including you chassis battery, are in series, they'll all drain and not just the house batteries.

RE: CoachNet changes??

Coach net left us hanging and refused to pay for service call or a tow when we ran over a retread in the road. It wrapped around our genny exhaust and bent it so it was rubbing on the road. Still no explanation why. I have since dropped them and gone to GS. We'll see how that goes. I'm pretty sure no roadside assistance would be out to help you for bent generator exhaust and pay for it. I'll beg to differ with that. GS plan does not have any restrictions like that. Heck they even cover any other vehicle I happen to be riding in. They covered a mechanic to come to my then house for bad batteries. I was just out of hospital and couldn't put the new batteries in myself, but I had to move the MH for some other repairs. Batteries effect the running of the vehicle, no? Does the generator exhaust? It's like calling them to say your microwave isn't working. They MIGHT send a tech out to look at it, but it certainly won't be on their dime because it does not effect the operation of the vehicle or cause it to be inoperable. The generator was wedged under the motor home. It also broke an air line. The compressor could keep up with the leak but you can't drive with an exhaust pipe dragging on the ground. They couldn't even find someone to respond (on my dime) in less than 2 hours. I found one on google who came out in 30 minutes with a saws all and removed the pipe so I could be on my way. I can't believe they would not help in this situation. "Ran over a retread and damaged an air line" is an awful lot different than "Ran over a retread and bent my generator exhaust". Did you neglect to mention that to them, much like you neglected to mention that in your first post here? Regardless of how the damage occurred, if it was just the bent generator pipe dragging, I wouldn't expect a roadside assistance to help you and pay for it because it absolutely does not disable the motorhome in the least. You get that thing cut, like you did, and move on.

RE: Pink stuff vs Air pressure - The Verdict

I've used air the last couple of years, and many nights get down to -30 celsuis here, even worse with wind chill. No issues.

RE: post closed

The reason posts are closed here is because there are too many people who overvalue their 2 cents. Someone makes a post offering a site for Y hours, guaranteed someone will pipe in right away with their calculator in hand saying that, since their site costs X amount on their website and they want Y hours, they're only "paying" the person Z dollars/hour instead of just minding their own business and letting someone else decide whether they want to take the offer or not. It discourages people from offering up jobs here, which undermines the purpose of this forum.

RE: Motorhome hit in storage lot

This kind of stuff is a regular occurrence these days. Just last weekend, our dog had some stomach issues and woke me up at 2:00am or so to go out. At that time, I don't bother putting on my contacts, I take my 15 year old glasses with a prescription that works just well enough for that kind of thing. On the walk, I get to the corner where someone pulls into the parking lot to drop someone off, reverses out like nobody's business and smashes into a neighbour's car probably 50 feet from me. After a couple of seconds of wondering what they should do, tears off right by me. Of course, I wait because I know they got to get by me, but my glasses suck and I can't even get a plate #. Seemed stupid standing there telling the cops that the car passed within a few feet from me and I still couldn't get the plate. It's just the audacity of the person because there was no way they didn't know I was there, I was under a light post as they went by for pete's sake, and no way they would have known that I couldn't see the license plate, but took the chance anyway.

RE: Toad 4 down or car on trailer? Need advice

Four down for me is just too easy. A trailer is just another thing that will take room on your site, if they even allow it.

RE: Age Restricted Communities

There are many 55+ parks in the areas where you're likely to find snowbirds - Florida, Arizona, Texas. I think it keeps the weekend party types out, although I do know some 55+ers who certainly know how to party....

RE: Myrtle Beach S.C.

My only personal experience is at Pirateland, but we won't be back there. It'll be Myrtle Beach Travel Park next time.

All of these funny things you see on the Kiss Cam are set up - there won't be any lawsuits...

RE: Internet price

When you price something off the internet, you'll usually get an "internet only" price. Camping World is aware that the buyer has to pay the shipping, so they charge a lower price if you purchase it online. That doesn't mean you can walk into the store and expect them to price match it.

RE: Cannot find source of roof leak on 2004 national Sea Breeze

The strange thing about water leaks is that they can come from some place that is nowhere near where they're coming inside. If water comes through around one if the outside lights in front of the unit, it can pass all the way to the opposite end of the unit and come inside in the rear. Best do like popeye said and bring it to a dealer that can do the pressure test.

RE: some people's kids

By the way, in most jurisdictions, driving 45 mph in a 65 mph zone is perfectly legal. Not if they are holding up traffic in the passing lane. It is after all, for "passing", not limping along. Actually in most jurisdictions, driving 45 in a 65 will get you pulled over and warned for "unnecessary slow driving" and told to take the side roads instead of the highway/interstate or it'll be a ticket next time.
