RE: Cargo Capacity Rating-Is it Enough

CC sometimes is determined including water & propane, but is usually bone dry of everything. In real life, at the level this one has, you'd be probably over if you put a couple rolls of toilet paper in. The rules are different than when we started RVing. Then, weights disclosures were more an imaginary thing. In 2000 RVIA developed a labeling requirement that members were suppose to use. Included in those requirements was one that manufactures had to post the cargo carrying capacity of the coach. But there were no real teeth in the RVIA standards. Things changed in late 2007, when the federal government, through NHSTA, finalized their own regulations and labeling requirements. From the preamble to the regulations: we are requiring that the stated load carrying capacity not overload the vehicle. The GVWR of the vehicle must not be exceeded when the vehicle is loaded with the stated load carrying capacity. Manufacturers are permitted to understate the value of load carrying capacity to compensate for variances in manufacturing techniques, materials, and weighing techniques, however, under no circumstances is an overstated value of load carrying capacity permitted. Any inaccuracies due to scale tolerances and variances in manufacturing techniques or materials must be compensated for by appropriately increasing the safety factor between the allotted weight for occupants and cargo (or just cargo in the case of RV trailers) and the GVWR. Accordingly, the probability of moisture absorption by wooden structures before first retail sale should be considered in assigning the load carrying capacity. Included in the regulations: When weight is added between final vehicle certification and first retail sale, the load carrying capacity values on the labels must be corrected using one or a combination of the following methods: (a) Adding a load carrying capacity modification label within 25 mm of the existing vehicle (FMVSS No. 110) placard, and/or the motor home OCCC label, or RV trailer CCC label (FMVSS Nos. 110 and 120); (b) modifying the original permanent RV load carrying capacity label or vehicle placard with correct load carrying capacity weight values; or (c) replacing the original, permanent RV load carrying capacity label or vehicle placard with the same label or placard containing correct load carrying capacity weight values. Federal Registry In the end, you may find some manufactures that will cheat on the numbers, but not like in the old days. The Feds have too much clout. Tom

RE: Plans for Classifieds

For a period of time, 2008 - 2009, or so, the forum had a free classified section. http://i39.tinypic.com/2n8a3r8.jpg We were not informed as to why it was terminated. It was not moderated by the forum moderators. and it was very unwieldy;. Tom

RE: Cargo Capacity Rating-Is it Enough

It sounds low, but it would help to know how the CCC was calculated. If the coach was manufactured before 2008, the CCC is probably calculated using RVIA standards. In that case, CCC is in addition to the weight of fresh water. If it was manufactured after 2008, then the CCC should calculated using the (required by law) NHTSA standards. In that case, the weight of dress water is counted as part of the cargo. Regardless of which of the two standards, the weight of propane is in addition to the CCC. Tom

RE: Not able to reply to posts

I get this quite often when I check in and I am already logged in. Logout of the forum, log back in, and it will work perfectly. Its got something to do with being logged in for an extended period of time. I'm glad that works for you - It could be that when you log back in, that you are getting the secured server, which doesn't have the issue. I log out every time I leave the forum, yet I will have the problem. Here is a % symbol. Quote this post and make a reply? Note whether or not you are on the secured server; i.e., the URL starts with https:// Tom

RE: Not able to reply to posts

If you are using the RV.Net portal, the problem is probably related to characters you are using. For example, the RV.Net portal cannot process the percent symbol (%) unless you are on the secured server (https://). Switch to the Woodall's portal, which is not having the same issues. Same forum, same login. Tom

RE: Having trouble posting "new post" to 5th wheel forum

I wonder if anyone has tried to fix this or at least explain in the error mesage. Has to be something simple. This is not the first time this issue has occurred. We saw it in late spring 2012 and it took several months to be resolved. I doubt that anyone who looked at the problem back then is still with around. This time around, the issue arose in late January, so we are 5 months into it. More than enough time to figure it out, one would think. Tom

RE: folding ladders from CW on sale, reviews please

We have carried (and used) one for 5 years and I recommend it. I can't speak to the weight on the rear bumper, since ours travels in the basement. Tom

RE: Computer/Music Question

From a Microsoft help page Play a file, and then switch to Now Playing mode. If you’re in the Player Library, click the Switch to Now Playing button in the lower-right corner of the Player. Right-click an open space in the Player (such as to the left of the Stop button) , point to Enhancements, and then click Play speed settings. Move the Play Speed slider to the speed at which you want to play the file, or click the Slow, Normal, or Fast links. To select speeds between the labeled play speeds, in the Play speed settings dialog box, clear the Snap slider to common speeds check box. To hide the settings, click the Close button in the Play speed settings dialog box. Tom

RE: RVnet issues

I've been able to post % symbols from rv.net just fine. Issue I've noticed is connection reset errors, I've been able to fix those by clearing my login cookies, refreshing page and re-logging in. When you are on the RV.Net portal, are you on the secured server, i.e.. https://? That server does not exhibit the issues that the non-secured server does. Currently, I am posting through the secured server and not having an issues. Most of the time, my computer connects to an unsecured server. Tom

(Quote my post and try to make a response, the precent symbol above will cause an issue for most users of the RV.Net portal. After recovering from the error, erase the percent symbol and try again. You shouldn't have a problem. Through the Woodall's portal you would not have the percent symbol issue. Tom

The FAQ's at the top of this forum has tutorials for many forum issues and features, including this one: Can't see pictures because of preferences - tutorial. Although the tutorial contains pictures :h, which you can't see, it does have bulleted step-by-step instructions on how to change the preference setting to allow you to see pictures. Tom

RE: Switched from RV.Net to Woodall's, subscriptions dont work

When moving between portals, there is no need to make any changes to subscriptions or other forum features; they all are valid through all of he portals. Do you get subscription notifications for any other subscriptions? I don't use email notifications. When I login, I look on the My Forums page and can see how many new posts have been made in a Forum, Topic, or by a member that I subscribe to. There are links that will take me to those posts. Tom

RE: day night blinds

If the cord is too tight, the blinds will be hard to move up and down. You will find two cord retainers at the bottom of the blinds, one on each side. To loosen the cord, unwrap the cord from around the retainers. Don't rush it, if the cord is too loose, the blinds will slide down on their own. Tom
