RE: Coach Net, great service !!

Just as an FYI look at the post about Coach Net in the General RV Forum JimR

RE: Coach Net has wrong name on my account

Update to the update hopefully the last update. Received a phone call this am from Coach Net saying that 400 members were assigned the same account number and the fix was to reissue new account numbers and send out new cards. So I guess they figured it out. To note I did renew with them a couple days ago. JimR

RE: Need a new propane detector

Mine went out and yes the replacement was a different size, smaller. The guy that did the install made a bezel that fit over the hole the old one came from and cut a new hole for the new detector in the bezel. He used the black heavy plastic like in a compartment and it blends in very well. JimR

RE: Coach Net has wrong name on my account

8 years with zero issues, 3 flats and one major tow. Always prompt and courteous, I have their app on my phone, push send and they answer, they have account number and GPS if on in the phone. You are correct no problems since 2004 and a couple of tows and one lockout. I will renew next month. JimR

RE: Coach Net has wrong name on my account

OK Coach Net problem solved hopefully As I understand it, there were some new accounts merged with established Coach Net accounts by a RV dealer in Texas. I discovered the issue when I was sent a renewal email with a different account number and attempted to sign into my account. When I signed into my account, I needed to use the secret question and answer method to get into it and was surprised to find someone else’s name and address there but my information on my RV was correct. There were other issues too when trying to renew, (hit the renew button), and then the correct name came up but said my account had expired by more than 90 days. Per the person I talked to at CN today this has happened to a hundred or so accounts and people are calling in. This information was not available when I called the first time on December 8th. The fix was done by Coach Net’s IT department issuing new accounts and closing the old established account, hence the expired message, and then having the account holder, me, sign into CN and sign up like a new member using a new username and the new account number. Once I signed into the account all my information was there just like nothing had happened except for a new account number. I need to say even with the issues above that when I called into customer service and used my name, they, Coach Net, knew who I was and confirmed my coverage Thought I would pass this along as it sounds like there may be a few more but who really knows for sure JimR

RE: Coach Net has wrong name on my account

Well I sent another email through the contact us part of the web page and got an answer. The answer: Thank you so much for your email and for being a valued Coach-Net member! Please contact our member services department for further assistance: OK but I have been in contact with the member services four times now. Also I went to the web page today and the other name is there so I changed the password and updated my information except the name. I went to the renew page and that page said my service had expired 90 days ago. ???? JimR

RE: Coach Net has wrong name on my account

Maybe you should let that account end when time to renew rolls around and open a new account. Yep I have been thinking that way, but the account is 16 years old since 2005, well but yep I know. Also my account expires on Feb 1st the other guys account expires on April 1st. You know you get older and change just sucks. Thank You JimR

RE: Coach Net has wrong name on my account

I should post that I have had very good service with Coach Net, using the service a few times for the passenger vehicles. I am not trying to influence any decision making. Just want folks to be aware of my issues with another name, some guy from Texas, and address on my account. I was able to fix the address but not the name. JimR

RE: Coach Net has wrong name on my account

Thanks for the information I am just concerned about the viability of the company with no response, to what I consider a viable question. Maybe just the holidays have them busy or maybe they are in a death spiral and a renewal would be a waste of money. JimR

Coach Net has wrong name on my account

Got an email for Coach Net renewal so I went to the web site to look. Had to reset my password and all was good till I saw that my name was not on the account. Same account number and RV information but another person is on my account with a different renewal date. I did call and report this and am awaiting a call back but thought I just pass this along for others to check with all the funny stuff going on. Have a good day JimR

RE: Sylvan Lake Campground to Mt Rushmore

To Custer then north to 244 via 385. Unless you want some switch backs and a low narrow tunnel, the Hood tunnel 8' 9" wide 9' 8" tall. Look up the route on Google Maps JimR

RE: Shower hose fittings problem

I am just guessing that the diverter has an odd or different type of thread that was part of the old hose nd shower head. I assume you can buy a new diverter. Till then just poke some holes in a bucket and hang that from the ceiling and pour in water. :B JimR

RE: Winegard X2 storage bag

Here is the solution. According to a review on Amazon for a Winegard X2, this person reported that a 18" x 22" drum bag was a good fit and a "perfect solution." Protec Bass Drum, Black, Kick 18 x 22 (hgt x dia) (HR1822) -- Amazon $44.00 Quote: Perfect match for the Winegard Pathway X2 PA6002R Satellite TV Antenna By Donna k on Nov 03, 2018 If your having trouble finding a storage bag for the Winegard Pathway X2 PA6002R Satellite TV Antenna, the Heavy Ready 18 x 22" (Height x Diameter) Padded Kick Drum Bag by Protec, Model HR1822 was a perfect solution for the price. Yep I believe this is where I saw it reading the reviews before I bought my Pathway X2 and Wally bundle from Amazon. JimR

RE: internet

When I went to a camp that did not have WIFI I bought a Verizon phone , a Moto G4 ??, that had hot spot capability and bought the plan that worked for me, I think it was unlimited with 30 GB of data. Good for email and banking not streaming HD movies. Cost about $50.00 a month and the phone was about $70.00 and worked for two seasons. I did have an AT&T iPhone but Verizon was the only service that worked in my location. So the things to think about are what service works where you are going and is there a cheap phone or device to buy that will work read the fine print. Oh the Verizon plan was Pre-Pay so when done no more payments and not locked into a contract. JimR

RE: Alfa basement air service

The outside Condenser coils you can access from the outside with a Garden Hose. The INSIDE Evap coils are harder to get at. Remove the AC filter under the rear bed and see if you can access the Evap there. Are you asking because you have a cooling problem? Doug I do not remember any ALFA having a filter under the bed as that is where the engine is. JimR One of the reasons Alfa went out of business was because the DESIGN of the basement AC system meant that you had inadequate return air from the middle to front of the Motorhomes. WE sold Alfa for just 1 year and dropped the line after numerous Customer complaints of NOT getting the Alfa's below 80 degrees on higher than 90 degree days. This was a known problem to Alfa and Alfa could never engineer a fix. So, the Air filter on the units we sold was indeed in the back under the bed. Doug Doug the air filter is not under the bed. The air filter is in the bedroom area near the bed in the cabinets above or passenger side of the bed. Under the bed is the engine access hatch no air filters. JimR You are correct. There was another brand Motorhome from 20 years ago with basement air that had the filter in the bed compartment. Doug Doug no big deal I forget what I want when going into the next room. I will agree with you that the AC on the ALFAs were not the best and that a roof air in addition to the basement air solved some issues with cooling. In the later years ALFA added a J box in the electric compartment and a 12 3 Romex from the J box to the forward top roof vent for the addition of a AC unit on the roof at owners expense. I hope dannydperez get his AC worked on JimR
