RE: Neskowin Creek RV Park membership

We were at a Camping world in Burlington WA. and had the same thing happen with the same outfit. A draw for a generator and a call saying we won this big deal prize. We dropped by their promotion site and I just said cut the **** how much will it cost me. After a bunch of bull he told me $600. I told him I won nothing and he runs a scam. I wonder if anyone ever wins the generator?

Geez, I thought it got dark every night. I wasn't scared of the dark before, but hmmm!

RE: running lights ok but no brake or turn signals

I would check the plug. Some times they just need to get wiggled a bit. Or sometimes things come apart in them. You can check the plug on the back of the truck with a test light for all functions and you will then know if it is a blown fuse or not.

RE: Here is a 5th Wheel trailer to envy....

I pulled a 53ft trailer a few times and it was clumsy on the highway yet alone city or especially an rv resort. It is very nice but not for me.

RE: Animal rights activists harrass fisherman

These guys need to be dropped off in the jungle. That is where animals have the right to eat them.

RE: Really?

Yes it is a sign of the times. I didn't think it would turn out to be anything but thought what the hey. I didn't go through the big sales pitch as I interjected 5 minutes in and said what is the bottom line. He tried to talk around that but I just said "don't waste your time and mine tell me what it will cost me". I had not been to Camping World for a long time and it will now be a long time again. Not that it is their fault but then again they condone that type of marketing.

Last weekend we stopped at Camping world in Burlington Wash. on the last leg of a 3 week trip. On the way in the store they were giving hot dogs and such away and the gal said fill out this form and enter the draw for a Honda generator. I get a call yesterday from Nescowin or something similar saying I won a $1995. prize and that I should come to their facility at Birch Bay and claim my prize of a membership for all their facilities across the country. They said something of a $300. activation fee on the phone. For the heck of it we went there today and they were going to give us the big tour and I asked "What is the bottom line here and how much do I have to pay for this PRIZE? He mumbled $600. and started in on the sales pitch on how much we could save. No Thanks I said That is not a prize I won but a cheap SCAM!!

RE: What happened?

I have watched this forum for several years now. I rarely start a thread and the odd time I will ask a question. I have received some very good advice from some and not so good advice from others. I have offered advice on a few topics and been flamed by some of the resident know it alls. It is a forum and you will get all kinds of people on here, so with that in mind I just ignore the jerks and move on. There are many good people on here even if they always don't agree they stay polite.

RE: CHP doing their best!! THANK YOU!

You never hear many good stories about the CHP. It is nice to hear one and it can be poo poo'ed all you want but the Officer removed a road hazard that someone could run into. He may have saved a life. Years ago I was stopped by the CHP just after dark and the lights were out on the back of my coach and toad as well. I had dragged the light cord so the officer followed me to a rest stop that was just up the road where I could safely repair it. Really nice fellow.

RE: Toilet bowl doesn't hold water

We just got a new to us Fifth Wheel and the toilet would not hold water. After fooling with one in another rv we had I just replaced the whole toilet. Cleaning and lubing works a lot of the time but there was just something about messing with something we did't put there.

RE: Lynden/Aldergrove Border Crossing

I have been through with my car but not the Rv since they rebuilt but it seems the lanes look a little wider. They probably are not that much wider but every little bit helps. Going back into the US you can use the truck lane there and it is really wide.

RE: Lynden/Aldergrove Border Crossing

I use both Sumas and Aldergrove crossings regularly. Sumas is often more busy than Aldergrove so we go there when that happens. I find Aldergrove easier with a Class A as the booths seem to be wider. If you cross at Aldergrove it is a straight shot to hwy 1 and then straight into Vancouver. Yes the traffic is busy but if you do it in the late morning early afternoon it will probably be the best time. Sumas will take you farther east than you need to go for not much benefit. The Peace Arch and Truck crossings are usually busier and more traffic. I would do Aldergrove but that's just me.

Just sold the 01 HR Imperial and it left today. Just bought a 01 Citation 29rk fifth wheel. I have a 04 Dodge with a Cummins to pull it so we will be off to new adventures. We will miss all the amenities of the coach but will most likely use the trailer more as it will go places we would not take the coach. Will we be sorry Maybe!!

RE: Whad-da-think?

I have seen and heard of worse Idea's than that. The worst thing that will happen is the truck will most likely fail in some way. Then again you may hit perfect conditions and no wind and all will be fine. Be safe.

RE: Rear Kitchen

We had an 2006 28ft Sierra Fifth Wheel with a rear kitchen. We had to tie everything down and put locks on the cupboard doors. Everything had to be packed just so. It did not have shocks. We just bought an older 2001 Citation and it has a rear kitchen. We pulled it 200 miles home and over some rough road as well. I forgot and left the rod for opening the awning leaning against the wall in a corner and when we got home it was still standing there. The chairs were standing at the table un tethered and had not moved. This trailer has shocks. I don't know if that is the difference or just a better build but we were pretty impressed.

RE: Boards under tires

It's quite funny that all the tire manufacturers store their tires in warehouses on concrete floors until they are shipped out. They must have alot of boards!

RE: Ever notice ?

With the tow bar clearly hanging there on the back of the M/H I guess the guy couldn't figure it out. As I was parked in a clearly marked RV spot you would think the guy might of figured that out as well. As there was a clearly marked parking lot for cars right next to the rv parking area you would think he would have figured that out. You sometimes get tired of being the guy that has to move because of someones ignorance. It looks to me like there are alot more of his kind around.

RE: Ever notice ?

We were boon docking at a Casino lot and parked our coach with the towed behind. We unhooked the towed and went shopping and when we returned some jerk had parked behind the coach where our towed was supposed to be. There were lots of othe places to park but he chose there. Sooo, I parked our towed behind his car not leaving him room to get out. Needles to say there were words exchanged and after being told the more ignorant he gets the longer he will wait he finally admitted he was wrong. I don't think he will do that again.

RE: We crossed the Canadian border Wed. 24 May

Those that don't want to come to Canada because they cant bring an arsenal should think of going to some other country where they run around with automatics and shoot everything in sight. It may be they could do some good there. It is not that you cannot bring firearms into Canada, it is you cant bring certain firearms into Canada. If you choose not to come to Canada with an automatic rifle with a humongous clip that holds a pile of ammo, or an auto handgun, that does not bother me at all. I will feel safer. Yes we have crooks here with guns. We have traveled in the western US fairly extensively and met alot of nice friendly people that appreciated our business. We have met a few rude ones as well as we have in Canada as well. The big difference is they didn't trash foreigners on RV Net.
