RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

... gibberish of epic proportions. .. This from the king of epic gibberish: Ralph Cramden aka BillyBob Jim, and now Bert Akerman. Narcissistic personality disorder — a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others.

RE: Rubber roof cleaning

I was given CamCo roof cleaner available at Walmart. It sat on the shelf for a long time, but then I went to clean the roof and didn't have my usual Spic & Span so I used it. Was not enthused while cleaning, but the rinse water was brownish. But when it dried, boy what a difference - very white and bright. Here is a picture I used for selling it taken after cleaning it and laying down caulk. Don't use anything that lists petroleum distillates in the contents. https://i.imgur.com/TYNtZB7.jpg width=640

RE: Black Tank flush with valve closed

Is it common for people to close the valve with the hose still running in order to prime the tank with some fresh water?The guy running my PDI told me to do this - said have your wife look down the toilet while your running the flush. She came around the corner and said tell me what? I said to him, go ahead - you tell her. I keep my valve open while flushing - have a clear elbow connected to monitor the water color.

RE: Grand Design after sale warranty treatment

Send a pm to the Moderator of this forum - Admin The notify moderator links don't work. To post in different forums, simply select the appropriate one from the drop down list top right. Don't double post this - it's frowned upon. Just ask Admin to move it. I received similar service on my GD fifth wheel after the warranty expired. They do treat their customers well.

RE: Discount off MSRP

Here is another GD owner who posted to this forum discussing the customer support he received after the warranty service/support further clearing the smoke others with no experience with the brand like to blow.

RE: Discount off MSRP

As a person with actual experience with Grand Design, I got 30% off MSRP and a front bedroom AC installed. GD also worked with me and corrected an issue with my awning three months out of warranty. I had a very nice 30 minute conversation with the VP of customer service. I emailed him about the issue, included my VIN number. He called me back after getting my phone number from their records with the help of the VIN. I don't have any issues with any of the installed equipment and we really enjoy using it. The salesman who told you that was blowing smoke - like some forum posters here. Grand Design isn't the one your dealing with - it's the dealer who already owns the trailer or will own it and can get it a a specific price. If you have a General RV dealer in your vicinity, they are a high volume GD dealership and therefore can be dealt with. The trick is to not be a buyer on your first visit to the dealership, and have them show you different models and brands. When your ready to deal, pull out your phone and calculate 30 - 35 percent off the MSRP on your phone - or whatever number your comfortable with. I did this and it was significantly lower than the number they put in front of me. I simply showed them my phone and said this is where I'm at - and when they asked if I would be a buyer at that number, we asked for a minute to discuss. When they came back, we told them we would buy at that number if they threw in a front AC with thermostat. They accepted, we bought. You just have to be ready to walk away - they will call you back. If you are interested in GD, then check out their owners forum here. You can talk with actual owners of the model your interested in and get the pros and cons from them. Good luck and feel free to PM me.

RE: Program requiring activation on a new computer

Moving the drive likely won’t help as the key is probably locked to a specific computer. Similar to the way Windows keys used a combination of the hard drive serial number, motherboard and network card. You could change out one of those but more than that required a reauthorization. That’s why remote servers are used. If we knew the name we may be of more help.Maybe - maybe not. Authentication is performed once - not every time the program is launched.

RE: building new campground

So to those who won't drive 8 miles to an out of the way CG after driving hundreds of miles that day, what's your next move - driving 25+ miles to the next Walmart? To the OP - sounds like you've got a great plan to me - and maybe some can't fathom starting up a CG from scratch. Your Harvest Host guests don't seem to mind the drive, and what you are planning is way better than some dive on the side of the freeway where they pack them in like sardines. You already have the brewery as an attraction - that should be a great incentive to campers - at least to those who really have campers and just don't troll RV forums. There have been others who post on here with the same questions - and always get the same responses - the trolls who post under numerous handles that know how to use google to look up regulations in your area, the ones who say they wouldn't travel X miles to your CG, the current CG owners who will tell you that it's not a vacation and that the CG business is a rough road to travel because gee, you have to figure out how to advertise and then tell you how much income you can expect to make, and that your not going to get rich, and the ones who will tell you what king of facilities to have and basically design your layout for you because gee, you couldn't have done or thought of any of that before posting. Do yourself a favor and ignore those posts. You and your family are Dairy Farmers which is a business that rivals any CG ownership and are most likely already aware of the legalities/zoning/costs/advertising - as you stated. Build your CG because you already have the right stuff to pull it off - and it sounds like you in a good position to do so. BTW - great dig on FORD tractors!

RE: OTA television while traveling?

I searched for digital antenna. Apparently, not everyone squawks at the term.

RE: Program requiring activation on a new computer

Maybe try removing the old computer hard drive and either install it in the new computer case or get one of those cases and use it as an external hard drive connected via USB. The drive won't be called C anymore, but you can still run programs that reside on it - just find the program and create a desktop shortcut. If you don't know where it is, right click the current shortcut and select properties.

RE: Late check out

We are a bit more liberal on arrivals in that if the site has been cleared and checked off the list we will accommodate that arrival, but that is something we would never agree to during the reservation process or prior to actual arrival via a phone call, email or text from the guest. If you truly need to extend your stay past checkout time, book the extra day. And this is all you should ever expect out of any CG, and has been my experience. When traveling on the arrival day, we leave at the best time for us - I don't calculate the arrival time to the minute as travel time is affected by many unknowns. We usually arrive within an hour to 30 minutes of official check in time and if the site is available, they have let us in. Had to wait in the staging area of a state park one time because they were short staffed that day. didn't bother me at all. We wake up early on departure day so we can have coffee and breakfast - then we pack up and leave. And if the CG let the previous person stay in my spot then told me to go to an alternate site to wait, I'd be po'd at both the CG owner and the person still in my site. The OP states that they wanted to do more trail riding before checking out? Then get it done before time to go, otherwise book an additional day. Of course the person who has the valid reservation for a specific data and time is going to be mad - DUH! Doesn't matter - your responsibility is to leave on time.

RE: Help with a batch file not concatinating it's logs

I'm not great at batch files either - but it seems like your using a timestamp in the name of the log file, then checking to see if the name exists when writing a log - time marches on and therefore, the log file name you created a minute ago using date time minutes, seconds, milliseconds? will never exist again. Try leaving out the timestamp in the name - the OS will tell you when it was created in the properties if that info matters. Maybe I read your logic wrong - but the advice to go to Stackoverflow.com is solid. You will have to create an account, and the crowd there can be tough sometimes. And shame on those who feel the need to knock a question that isn't in their wheelhouse and therefore need to scold - humor aside. You just asking a question in a place your comfortable doing so.

RE: Safe to tow ? Mercedes GLS with a 4500 lb travel trailer

Skip the Mercedes and look into a Nissan NV 2500 or 3500.

RE: Lippert auto leveling question

Thanks everyone. I hear what you’re all saying, but my question is more conceptual. With the unit unhitched and supported by the landing gear, how does the lippert system level the camper without bending or breaking the landing gear? I’m not grasping how it can pitch the rig forward without causing damage.It levels front to back and side to side. The tires don't necessarily come off the ground - mine never have. There should be a step by step instruction sticker by the keypad - follow the instructions - that's it. But do yourself a favor and download the manual to your phone - we have had to use it when there is an unexpected error.

RE: 2007 Holiday Rambler Alumascape 32SKT

Looks like a nice unit: http://www.rvweb.com/rvimgs/holiday_rambler/1174597947176/2007_alumascape_suite_rear.jpg http://www.rvweb.com/rvimgs/holiday_rambler/fp/1174597961912/2007_alumascape_suite_33skq_floorplan.jpg Look up the value on the link the ReneeG provided making sure you take off an amount for the scratch the son put in it. I would also Google it and look at the ones currently for sale to get a range of what they are selling for. I did - saw lats of listings. One thing to take into account is the tires. Check the date codes on them as you most likely will need new. Although one ad I saw stated that it came with "radial" tires - whatever that means - LT? Post some pics if you end of buying it. Good luck!

So if your still RV'ing, why are you leaving the forum?
