RE: Park Models RV or Not?

The answer to the OP question "Park Models RV or Not?" can be elusive unless one realizes that there are two types of park models build to different standards. The A.N.S.I. Park Model unit (under 400 square feet) is built to comply with the R.P.T.I.A. ANSI A119.5 Standard for Recreational Park Trailers. This type of unit is licensed and titled as a Recreation Vehicle. The H.U.D Park Model (over 400 square feet but not more than 500 square feet) built to comply with the H.U.D. Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards. This type of unit is also licensed and titled as a Recreation Vehicle in Florida only. ryoung

RE: JETPACK oe AT&T Mobile Hotspot

Hardware wise I have had good service from the Verizon Jetpack 4620L (Novatel) device for the past two years. Prior, I had an AT&T Mobile Hotspot (Sierra Wireless) device that I had replaced 4 times within the 2 year warranty. On the 5th time I gave up and went to Verizon. Also I think Verizon has the edge when it comes down to cellular coverage. Just my experience. ryoung

RE: A tale of woe.

Seems to me you could get out of your contract because they delivered a different model than what you ordered. He doesn't have a contract, which is the major cause of his problem or whatever. ryoung

RE: Florida Life with a TC?

Some mobile home communities aren't too restrictive. In fact some may have storage areas for rvs and allow truck parking on your lot. ryoung

RE: 10 years on the Truck Camper Forum

Joined on 11/11/2002 However no longer have the rig in my sig. Drove it out to Oregon last month, used it a couple of weeks there and then put the truck and camper on consignment. Truck sold right off and hopefully the camper follows. Farewell fellow TCers. ryoung

US 12 Across SD, MT and ID

Planning a trip from Indiana to Oregon and I am thinking of getting off the Interstate at Summit, SD and taking US 12 all the way to Idaho. I know US 12 is beautiful in Idaho but was wondering what I would encounter across SD and MT. I can stand the boredom. ryoung

RE: frostproof fla

Southern Pines is a nice park in Frostproof. I have friends who stay there, but I winter in Lake Placid, about 40 miles south, also a nice area. ryoung

RE: New plan: I70 across Missouri & Kansas

x4 on US 36. I drove it 3 years ago on my last trip west. Good highway if you don't like pounding the interstates. Nice state park in Norton KS as mentioned. ryoung

RE: Humidistat ?

It should not be a hard thing to do. Go to a heating a/c company and buy or get them to install a humidistat in line with the thermostat that controls the A/C unit. I have a humidastat in my Florida park model while I'm back north in the summer time. It's cheap to operate, only about 4 kwh a month on the electric bill. ryoung

Millenicom is to Verizon as Consumer Cellular is to AT&T. Both sell their excess capacity and slower bandwidth to the smaller companies. Obviously you're not going to get the quality of service from the cheaper service providers. ryoung

RE: How much air in the tires? Need advice... First "real haul"

If you need an engineer to explain tire pressures, just read the door placard on your vehicle. The placard on my dually says to inflate tires to 65 psi at maximum rated load which if I recall is a little over 9000 lbs. I would assume that an engineer came up with this number. So why should I disbelieve him and run 80 psi? ryoung

RE: Roadside Assistance Urgent Statement

You will not believe what I'm about to post. Please read my two other posts above first. This afternoon I go a "courtesy" call from Good Sam informing me that my ERS was about to expire and I could pay now on the phone, blah, blah, and more blah. Finally when I was able to speak, I guess I yelled, I told him that my account should show that I was to receive a refund since I cancelled my membership on May 13th. Yes indeed, after calling up my account, it showed that I had dumped Good Sam ERS. If these callers have access to billing info, why in the hell do they waste their time and mine? Yeah, I know; it's all about marketing> ryoung

RE: Bad day?

I know there is a lot of good info on this web site, but if all they want to do is complain, then why come here and try to bring everyone else day down? First of all, you are also "complaining" by posting. Second, if it "brings your day down", don't read it. Hells fire, find something else to do if it has that much effect on you. ryoung

RE: Roadside Assistance Urgent Statement

I called Good Sam ERS yesterday and asked that my payment for next years service be returned. No problem. When ask why I was cancelling, I told the rep (not Marcus) that I was tired of receiving "urgent" notices when my membership was paid up. He said there was a computer glitch that sent every member this "urgent" message and it would take time to get it corrected. I then asked him why the computer glitch wasn't fixed last year when it did the same thing. End of conversation: and the refund is in the mail. Thank you Good Sam ERS for refunding my payment. ryoung

RE: Roadside Assistance Urgent Statement

I also got my urgent notice in the mail today informing me that my ERS membership expires this month. This is 23 days after sending my payment on April 19th. The check was deposited by GS ERS 4 days later. What is wrong here? Is their accounting that poorly managed that they cannot reconcile their accounts payable in a timely manner? I would hope not. Perhaps it's something else. The letter was signed by Marcus Lemonis the Chief Executive Officer. Ah, that's the problem! The CEO has to micro mange his company. Just imagine how many thousands of accounts this man must look after and send out renewal notices. Why doesn't Joe Smoe, the manager of accounts, sign the letter?? It would be more authentic if that's what their trying to project. All joking aside, this practice of sending these "urgent" notices is a very poor business practice, regardless of the benefit the company may gain from it. It's a waste of my time as I had to spend the time checking my records to see if I had mailed the check. Why should a customer have to be put through this BS? You should be sending me a thank you notice for my payment and thanking me for continuing to subscribe to your service. But no, you send me trash! What if I didn't see through the smoke and mirrors? I would certainly come to the conclusion, that if GS ERS can't manage their accounts, they certainly couldn't provide reliable road service. The final word is this. I am done with doing business with GS ERS. So Marcus since you are running the company, would it be too much to ask of you to cancel my service when it expires on May 28, 2014 and promptly refund my money that I paid for next years service. BTW the check number was #1313(no joke). ryoung

RE: Have you ever pulled into a weigh station?

When I purchased the 3500 Duramax last year I was concerned about traveling on I35E through St. Paul. This stretch is posted NO trucks over 9000lb GVW. I don't recall exactly, but believe my truck is rated at 11,500lb. GVW and GVWR are not the same. If your truck is empty, I doubt that it weighs over 9,000 lbs regardless of its GVWR rating of 11,500lbs.
