RE: Suggestions/comments for 3 Month Tent Camping Trip

para cord will come in handy for many things and doesn't take up much space.

RE: Help with major insurance problem

There are companies that specialize in fulltimer rv insurance. I'm currently insured by National Interstate. There are others. A previous poster suggested Gilbert RV Insurance - that's a good place to start getting quotes but you can also google it.

RE: Mail Service

St Brendan's Isle has great service. Used them for years.

RE: real slow ACER netbook

I would suggest going to crucial.com and run their analyzer for your system. If you can add memory at a reasonable price, that's a good option. Look at your page file. Most systems default to 'let windows manage it for me'. Set a static min and max size instead and it won't constantly be trying to resize. If the problem started about 8 months ago, you may have installed some software that set itself up as a startup program, possibly with some companions. Run msconfig and check what's loading at startup. Uncheck questionable programs, one at a time, reboot, and see if you notice any difference.

RE: Older Laptop More RAM

Online where is a preferred site to get more RAM for an eight year old laptop that has very little RAM? It's not an Apple - merely a standard. crucial.com (Just purchased from them, Got the survey today "Would you recommend" guess this answers that question) :) X2

RE: RV Salvage Yards

Maybe it should be a sticky?

RE: Toilet/Black tank issue

Is it possible that something else (like the shower or bathroom sink) is also plumbed into the black tank? Certainly easy to check if you have a clear extension on your sewer pipe.

RE: Marcus Lemonis -- Take Control and Clean Up Your Mess

Pretty "cool" that Marcus responded personally. If I tried to get a response from my CEO of the company I work for, I'd probably get fired! So, regardless of the problem, I think that's pretty cool! What would have been cool would have been for Marcus to say "I'll take care of it", not "tell me again what happened?". I also agree, all online shopping should be done with a Credit card. On more than one occasion I've had disputes that the cc company took care of. X2 on "I'll take care of it"

RE: Marcus Lemonis -- Take Control and Clean Up Your Mess

Im not to busy for this and i don't appreciate you saying that I don't care. Taking care of my camping world customers is more important to me than anything I do. We experienced a massive failure in our systems when we launched new technology. We are resolving it but for the record, it is no ones fault but mine. email me personally and I will make sure it gets resolved immediately. marcus@campingworld.com I would have to disagree with your statement. If taking care of your customers was that important to you, you would immediately disable your flawed online ordering system until all the problems are fixed. Your IT dept did have a rollback plan right? Your already tarnished reputation is NOT being helped by leaving a flawed system in place.

RE: Marcus Lemonis -- Take Control and Clean Up Your Mess

Good grief he is given the offer of intervention from the top. He rejects it as he does not want to waste his time. He has wasted tons of time already, gets an offer to help, rejects it. To the OP what do you really want besides to vent and bad mouth CW. I do not like CW but you have gone over the edge on this LET IT GO. DISPUTE the charge on your CC and get on with your life. I would have to agree with the OP on this one. At some point, you just get tired of repeating the same story so many times. It's in the system. For crying out loud, let CW (Marcus) make the extra effort to look it up instead of asking the customer to jump through yet another hoop.

RE: Cannot get lower channel TV reception

Have you already checked a website like antennaweb.org to find out which channels you should be getting?

RE: what to do with (atieclxx.exe) - how to remove it ? ?

I would open up the task manager and check processes first to see if any are using more than usual cpu, then memory to see if I'm running low on memory. You can check the memory by process if that looks like the problem.

RE: Cable pulls out but won't push in

Thanks for all the replies. Found the problem. The cable housing has pulled out from the barrel located at the top of the cable right behind where it goes through the wall. When I pulled on the cable it slid into place and worked. When I pushed on it the whole outer housing moved away. If I can't re-crimp it back into place,(like that's likely to happen) it's new cable time. I priced one onlne they're sure proud of those things... B.O. This sounds like the same problem I had a few years ago. Someone on another forum had a DIY fix for it. Get about a 3" length of 1/4" all thread and a couple of small hose clamps. Position the all thread next to the outer housing and the cable, like a splint. Tighten clamps and test. Good luck.

RE: Proper procedure for black tank rinse/sanitize

After I dump the black tank, I leave the valve open and flush for awhile. Usually there's still solid material, including TP, hanging up at the valve gate. If I close the valve at the end of the first dump, some of that TP tends to get stuck in the valve seat preventing full closure the next time. While flushing, when the water looks mostly clear, then I'll close the valve and do partial fills of the tank to get more solids out.

RE: Flush Line Black Water Tank

Could you clarify if you're talking about the SaniFlush to spray out the black tank after dumping? Or the drop from your toilet to the black tank?

RE: wifi at home and hacking?

I can easily see getting 'used' at a CG IF you have an open hotspot and IF the CG's wifi is slow. Set a password and probably nobody will bother trying to hack it.

RE: In the process of becoming a full-timer

Escapees is not the only option for a legal address in FL. I used St. Brendan's Isle mail forwarding service for years, always with great service. If you have other reasons to join Escapees, your proposal may be better but you don't need to join an organization just to get the mail forwarding. When I started fulltiming in 2006 I was married and the DW wanted to join every camping/RVing related organization in the country but we didn't really need to. You should plan on camping close to the dealer where you purchased your RV for at least a month before you start traveling. That way, if you run into warranty problems, it should be easier to get them resolved.

RE: My Experience - Camping World of Kingston, NY

... I don't think I have any choice but to drag the police in there, have them fill out a report for the "accident" that occurred in the CW lot and see if I can get my insurance company to help me. That sounds like it might be your best option. Let insurance handle the claim and take it somewhere else for the work.

RE: Camping World a let down

A response from an Administrator with an offer to research the issue in less than 2 hours after the post in open forum? That tells me they are trying to get good information to us. How many companies do we all try to deal with that we don't get any response at all from anyone let alone a response to a post on an open forum. I have found Camping World to be responsive when a mistake is made and while they aren't perfect either, they have always come through for me. If the business model, core best practice, and management style is just to "put out fires'" then Camping World deserves the defense this poster provides. However, it appears that Camping World/Good Sam are in the business of just appeasing a customer and not permanently resolving problems. Yep, kudos for allowing another line of communication (this forum) but bad on ya for not resolving root issues.
