RE: Tesla pick up in 4th quarter 2019

Amazing how this group has gone down hill over the years. All this arguing back and forth started by a truck that does not exist on the market yet.

RE: Warranty service disaster, please help!

Call a mobile tech and ask if they do warranty work. Most do. He will have you fixed quickly if parts are available. NEVER, NEVER go to CW for any repair if you want the rv back anytime soon.

RE: Can I Get Away With a Quick Brake Job in a Campground?

Honestly, I think a lot of you are inexperienced and don’t know what you’re talking about. You have never owned a vehicle with an exhaust brake, manual transmission and a diesel engine. I don’t think you understand how to even drive one. These brakes have lasted many tens of thousands of miles because you don’t really use them when you have an exhaust brake. I can drive all day. 400 miles. And never use my brakes except for when I am in town. I don’t use them even a little bit on the highway.I just drove from Ottawa to Toronto to upstate New York around the lake, no problem. Hundreds of miles. I never touch the brake pedal. I barely touch the brake pedal on secondary roads. The only time I really need it is coming to a complete stop at a stop sign or light. So wake up. Stop posting stupid stuff.From a old trucker here you are an idiot if you think that granny gear and exhaust brake will do anything for you in a panic stop. You are a danger to all around you and think its ok.

RE: Is anyone home at DirecTV

I haven't had to talk to anyone out of the states since I switched to Dish. I knew Direct was doomed with the merge with AT&t.

RE: What is the problem with Camping World?

They are all corporate owned. Nope, not all are corporate owned, corporate controlled maybe. Lots of Camping World locations which were previously Mom and Pop dealerships or smaller operations with a few locations still have the original owners involved behind the scenes no matter what was reported in the media or by Camping World. I would love to be able to read some of the agreements.Care to provide your source for this? The original owners may own the property but operation is CW from what I had read.

RE: What is the problem with Camping World?

I think the problem is that people are more apt to complain about a vendor to a forum than praise a vendor on a forum. High pressure sales seems to be kind of the norm for most dealerships both chain and mom and pop. Camping world may not have any more disgruntled customers than other dealers. But it's the sheer number of independent dealerships that makes camping world stand out. For example compare Camping World with 36 independent dealerships (Wikipedia) to a single mom and pop dealer. To make it easier lets say each dealer sells 10 RV's a month and has a complaint rate if 1 complaint per month reported to this forum. Camping world with 36 dealerships and 1 complaint per dealer we see 36 posts complaining about camping world for every 360 RV's sold. Mom and Pop dealer has same complaint of 1 out of every 10 sold and we see only 1 complaint. So now when we look at the forum we see it lit up with complaints (36)about camping world and only 1 complaint about the mom and pop dealer. So even though the complaint rate is the same (1 in 10) it appears that Camping world is doing a much worse job than the mom and pop.Camping World has no independent dealers. They are all corporate owned.

RE: What is the problem with Camping World?

Prices way too high, I had horrible service there and was way over charged to many times and last but not least, Marcus asked us not to shop there if we voted to his disliking. I spent thousands of dollars there but now honor his wishes.

RE: Your experience with a Dually vs SRW hauling 5ver

Check my sig. I have no push or sway at all. Good tires properly aired takes care of that. I have put lots of miles on both srw and drw's both crew cabs. I prefer the srw.

RE: Having Frame Rust Restored?

Use the POR 15. It will be there for years and wear gloves when painting. If you get it on you it will take a while to wear off. I used to buy it by the case for my shop.

RE: Didn't know where to drop this so I'm putting it here.

River Street is good and take the road out to Tybee Island and stop at the Crab Shack for a great meal. Interesting place.

RE: single or dually

Sure seems to be a lot of dually haters here. I bought mine 10/13 and have put just over 100K on it so far. If in a parking lot either park out a ways or back in. Mine is a CC LB and I can parallel park it on city streets. But I'm from the old school where you had to be able to parallel park during you drivers license test in order to pass. It's a reflection on todays Society! Been Fulltiming since 11/11 with a Dually truck accumulating about 135k between the two. No biggie!!!Just because I prefer a srw does not make me a drw hater. I put 230K miles on my dually and about the same on my srw's. Personal preference in no way makes someone a hater. Some of you guys claim hater if someones opinion differs from yours. That says a lot about folks.

RE: single or dually

I have towed with both for many miles camping and doing car shows all over the country. I prefer the srw for the following reasons. Easier to park in todays small spaces. I never had my srw hydroplane on the interstate in rain when unloaded. I did with drw. Two less tires to buy. No problem rotating tires. No stability issues with either one. No stars from rocks on rear fenders. That was enough for me.

RE: I am TRYING to buy and RV from you all. Not easy!

Do yourself a favor and go to the competing dealer. When its time for repairs you will be glad you did.

RE: Ford Diesel trucks

We are in the market for a Ford Super Duty F350. And, I'm afraid the V10 gasser is going to retire. I have really enjoyed our current truck, but we just bought a GD Solitude which weighs 2500 lbs. more than our Cruiser did. We are looking for a used truck and my question is if there are any years of diesel Fords that I ought to avoid? If you're looking for a used truck, I would ask, why limit your choices to Ford? Yes the Ford 6.7 engine has proven to be very good. And the Super Duty line has been very good overall. But the GMC Duramax or the Ram Cummins trucks are just as good. Don't limit your choices. Simply look around at the Full Timers Campgrounds it's GM and RAM not many Fords these days. For fun while driving on the Interstate observe what brand are transporting new RV's and are hauling cars, RAM by far then GM and few Fords.I don't know where you are looking but thats not the case around the SE where I travel.

RE: Warrantiy claim denied

I think I would consider another shop for the repairs. I don't believe they are very bright or honest.
