RE: Conclusion made: 95% of all TT's are a crapshoot

I can't even tell you how many dealers I made angry when shopping around. I said "Show me anything that is not built in Indiana". They got mad every time because just about everything is built there. I've heard the employees are paid per piece, not by the hour or salary (I heard from a source but not verified). Many companies in Indiana are owned by the same parent company, Thor. Skip Indiana. Northwoods MFG or Lance for decent quality (a bit pricier but not too bad). It's nice to watch the difference between the Arctic Fox factory and Jayco. No comparison.

Suburban Furnace

I thought I had a bad controller on my Suburban furnace. So I replaced it with a dinosaur electronics board. Still no exact fix. However it starts by cycling the blower on for 1 second then turning off. Stays off for a couple minutes. Then it turns back on for 1 second, then off wait for a couple minutes. Then it really starts to cycle faster and faster. 1-2 seconds on, 2 seconds off, 1-2 seconds on, 2 seconds off... Over and over again. for a long while this happens until I lose patience. I am positive I have the new controller board on correctly. I am positive my propane is on. Wondering if it is my valve or striker. ?? Any pointers? Is there a good way to test a striker?

Deep metal "groaning sound" from hitch. Is this normal?

So I have a type of WD hitch I've never used before... Without chains. On sharper turns I hear a deep groaning type of sound. I think it's the springbar rubbing the support bracket. The only thing I can compare the sound to is what you'd hear in navy type movie in boats where it sounds like the hull is "bending". LOL. Just a deeper groan. Is this normal? This is what my WD hitch looks like. Link Picture https://campaddict.com/wp-content/uploads/Trunion-Style-Spring-Arm-weight-distribution-hitch-example-wbg-400x189.jpg

RE: Do most parks check/copy your ID? (Victims of ID theft)

Or the 18 year old sells the numbers & ID information to the deep web where people do pay for info and steal your identity.But in the end, who cares. That theft is not “identity stealing” it is just your credit card being compromised. Happens all the time and the credit card companies are getting pretty good at catching it. Of course we end up paying for what they miss via their fees to vendors, but it’s a small price to pay verses using cash and catching a Corona virus. :W They have the card and your home address information. They know what you drive, what type of RV you have, and know what you look like. They know your hair & eye color, possibly that of your spouse, and if you have children. By your ring they know if you are married. From the internet they can capture just about everywhere you've lived, your house value, along with the relatives in your home (and/or how many children you have). With that information, they can go to Facebook, know where you work (or where you have worked), if you have a degree or not, etc. They can pose as you, give fake names & registrations under your name, and in some cases even travel in different countries in your name. They attempt to get credit cards in your name, and most creditors start "locking stuff", pass fake checks in your name, etc. Insurance companies see the warnings on your credit. Trust me, there are very good reasons you'd rather people NOT know you or much about you. It's not just a credit card getting compromised. You can even get your bank account locked (of course until you go in and "prove yourself")... Locked over and over again. The worst part is they hang onto you... Then attempt as your spouse. One day your are "honest Dave" the next "suspicious ""Dave"" ". Anyway, yes, we have made it a policy NOT to "show" ID if we absolutely don't have to. I'm to the point where I won't show it even to check in or the card (especially if they want a copy). So it's great to hear most places simply just ask your name and check you in. :) Giving any more info and places you trade with, ID numbers etc is rough.

RE: Do most parks check/copy your ID? (Victims of ID theft)

I’ve had it happen a few times at private parks and public parks. For me it’s no big deal. I’d rather have them look or copy my dl than my card. THAT I would have a problem with.They have a record of your card number the second it is used for a purchase. The only true firewall preventing your card from being compromised every time you use it is the fact that almost all people are not mastermind criminals. Bulk theft of card information is the big threat and that is generally accomplished by mastermind criminals often accompanied by lax digital security on the corporate level. The Russian mafia doesn't travel from RV park to RV park bribing reservation clerks to steal card numbers. No kidding huh? I thought a major strategy from Moscow was to bring down the USA via rv parks. Or the 18 year old sells the numbers & ID information to the deep web where people do pay for info and steal your identity.

RE: Do most parks check/copy your ID? (Victims of ID theft)

We stay mostly at KOA's or highly reputable private parks. Have never been required or even asked to show ID once. We always pay by credit card. Are you trying to pay by check? Credit Card. So do you just pay online and then just check in by telling them your name?

Do most parks check/copy your ID? (Victims of ID theft)

Well long story short, my wife was a huge victim of identity theft about 5 years ago. It was terrible. We haven't traveled too much in RV's (many many years ago) and were curious. We are very paranoid about RV parks in general copying and getting our ID cards such as drivers licenses etc. copied or giving them the info. How many parks do this? My wife is like "NO" on showing anybody ID (except authorities and of course or the bank). If it's "Joe Blow's RV park there is NO way she'd show her ID. I'm just curious of how many parks really want or more to the point DEMAND ID from their guests? Is it every park? Or do most parks generally just let you pay and go in? I know it's varied but would appreciate some insight. Like do COE parks demand it? Or city parks? What is the typical "check in"? Also I do know that many of you haven't probably ever had a problem... We never thought it would happen to us.
