RE: building new campground

Never saw anyone succeed listening to nay sayers. I saw one pop up 3 years ago near my summer cabin. Maybe 10 sites and I have never seen an empty spot there. I don't know how people found it as it is very isolated and not near anything. But trust me you build it and they will come. Me included.20% of new businesses fail in the first year, 50% fail within 5 years and 66% do not make it 10 years. It is estimated that 80% of those failures were do to cash flow issues. As has been said many times, failure to plan is planning to fail. No one has posted a solid don't do it, but many have posted potential pitfalls they may not have considered. You have given a alternative to extensive research with "build it and they will come" . It will save them a bunch of time and money upfront. And I guess hope and faith could be considered a business plan. Hopefully nobody is building a poorhouse nearby because if they are it would guarantee "Build it and they will come" will have a 50% success rate and my bet would be on the poorhouse. Westernrvparkowner I have always enjoyed reading your posts and advice like this one, I would like to stay at your park one day and meet you, but if you don't mind will you answer a question. Do you regret starting your park or are you very happy with the decision. I always thought if I had the cash I would love to build an RV park, retired now I don't see the cash coming in unless I were to win the lottery, and I would have to but a ticket first, Not. Thanks for your time, Keith

RE: Online sales... a good idea?

Online almost for us. When we went searching for our Outback we shopped locally and found the exact model a couple hours away and looked it over good and decided that was the one, then online we went to find the best price, we were not trading in our Lance TC so it was a little easier. Anyway we found the best deal online with General RV online sales, gave them a deposit over the phone with our cc and delivery was a month later and we picked it up at General rv dealer only a couple miles away, they handled all the pre check and walk thru at the local dealer and after treated us like we had actually purchased locally, but beat their local price. I believe it was the best of both worlds, we received warranty for the nose fading and they did us right. So I believe if you can buy locally thru online for best price you win if you need service later.

RE: North Georgia Mountains

Black Rock should not be a recomedation to a guy pulling a 27’ trailer up that hill where the max RV is recommended at 25’. Just driving up there in our long wheel base truck requires me to be in the oncoming lane at many switchbacks. Agree with RetiredJSO Camp at Unicoi, Moccasin Creek, or Talulah Gorge and visit the Black Rock SP in your truck. I was staying at Moccasin creek SP when we visited Black Rock and we all said the same thing, glad we didn't haul the Rv's up here. Both times we visited Black Rock there were tow trucks attending to Rver's up there, go visit and you will see why. It really is a great park, but without my 5ver was better. Keith

RE: Delamination on '09 Sierra

Todd ScottG is correct, make sure the back wall is supposed to be glued. My Outback was loose as could be and I never noticed it until we traded it in and I was washing it to tow it in for trade-in. I just told the salesman on drop off expecting a change of agreed trade in value and was sure we would take a 2-3000 dollar hit. The salesman told me upon inspection they appreciated our honesty but not to worry because they were never glued back there on the Outback, he said a lot of trailers were like that. So check and make sure it is supposed to be glued/bonded back there. Keith

RE: Did DutchmenSport Bug Out?

DutchmanSport is one of about 6 posters I have always made it a point to read his stuff. Didn't' matter the subject but I always enjoyed his posts. His posts were never bitter or spiteful and seemed to always be helpful. I hope he comes back because we need more like him. Keith

RE: Good Sam Trip Planner almost unusable.

JDB Where is the refresh icon you speak of? In my upper left is the back arrow or show sidebar icon, the only refresh I can find is the reload page arrow in subject line box. Everyone, appreciate your thoughts and advice, tonight it is working as it should, and I have not done a thing to fix it, this is very confusing. I am using a 2011 MacBook pro, high sierra Ver 10.13.6 I am not a computer person so anything else I will have to ask the kids. Keith

RE: Good Sam Trip Planner almost unusable.

Yes, just tried the planner again, upon logging in the trip did not show up, I logged out/in again and the trip still didn't show, then I loaded a different trip and then back to the current and now it showed. I was then able to get campgrounds to show on the map, but it would not add any to my current trip, I have never had this much trouble with the planner. I am using a Mac laptop with safari, I tried RV Trip Wizard demo earlier and am thinking of purchasing it for a year, too bad the Good Sam planner has been pretty good for a year but just frustrates me now. I'll wait on the Team for any suggestion, Thanks for the help. Keith

Good Sam Trip Planner almost unusable.

I am having a lot of issues with the GS trip planner, is any one else having issues. Issues like click on campground to add to trip and nothing happens, click on campgrounds to find campgrounds in the area and none show up, unable to add to a trip. Just a big pain in the ___ to use right now. I have never had issues this bad before, and if I did a reboot or close window and get back in or sign back in always fix'd. Thanks for any help. Keith

RE: Georgia/Alabama Campgrounds

High Falls SP is nice, it's south of Atalanta off I-75, and Veterans Memorial SP (not sure of the name) is good if you want to be near the water. Georgia veterans state park at Cordele Ga, yes it is a great park. Good fishing too. Keith

RE: 2016 F350 tow mirror - oops

Why not just turn it in to your insurance, if your deductible is not too high let them do the shopping. That is what we pay the premiums for. And if you don't back up into everything everyday too often it shouldn't affect your record/premiums. Keith

RE: Does Your Bed Cover, Cover Your 5'ver Hitch

I have the Retrax pro on my 2016 F350 and it covers my B&W Companion hitch with room to spare.

RE: Help with auxiliary fuel tank decision or replacement.

I had a Titan replacement tank on my last 2 trucks. They work very well and by far are the most convenient. What I hated was I don't think I got anything for them when I traded trucks, in fact, I'm sure I didn't. So, money lost. When I got the new Ford last year someone on this forum, or maybe another one, not sure, suggested the Enduraplas 25 gallon transfer tank. It is easily removeable, as long as it is empty, which means if and when I get another truck it goes with me. I've used it several times this summer and it worked like a champ. The fill nozzle has an auto shut off which I tested and can confirm it works. It will empty the 25 gallons in less than 4 minutes. Just another suggestion. Appreciate your thoughts, and I am thinking of the aux for the same reason of new truck later, my problem is I have to keep the size really small cause I only have 8 inch's under the Reflex roll up cover box in the front, and the drain tubes coming from it only gives me 48 inch's width and 20 inch's of room before the slider hitch. So I think I am tied to the RDS 20 gallon If I do it myself or the local truck shop will custom order one which adds about 8 more gallons for a total of 28. But of course the price for them to order and install doubles so that is a consideration. Really appreciate everyones thoughts, really helps with the solution. Keith

RE: Help with auxiliary fuel tank decision or replacement.

Really appreciate all the thoughts and your experience. From the majority it seems I am over thinking the fuel going bad in either the aux tank or the replacement Titan 50 gallon. I am definitely going for the additional fuel capacity, now to just make a decision of aux or replacement. Thanks for any and all thoughts, I will keep looking at your ideas and recommendations, appreciate it. Keith
