RE: Rip off prices from RV Dealers

I'm the original poster. I'm surprised at all the comments. I must admit that no one twisted my arm to buy and install the part and I still love America and our free market system. It was posted more of as buyer be aware and shop around if you want a good deal? I might consider doing the air blow again for winterizing because I'm not sure my wife opened the toilet valve during the process. One of the problems I had was the lack of Wi Fi at our RV Park so I could not shop around. Thanks for all the comments. I agree with retailers have overhead and they need to make a living.

RE: Rip off prices from RV Dealers

I see nothing wrong in a dealer making a profit and even doubling the price of the item does not seem unfair. Dealers have a lot of overhead and have employees. Its the American way to make a profit. I am not about squeezing every penny or nickel until I circumcize the buffalo and I will pay the retail price at the dealer. I do not like being skinned. From now on I will weigh the cost and time factor before I buy parts at the dealer again.

Rip off prices from RV Dealers

We took a trip along with our neighbors in our travel trailers to the Alabama Gulf Coast last week. While there both of us had issues with our travel trailer toilets due to improper winterizing. Next year we will both due a better job and use the pink stuff throughout the entire system rather than simply blowing it out. We needed to replace our toilet mechanism and found a useful You Tube that showed us how to do it. We both purchased the new valve system from a reputable dealership in the area for $56 with tax and installed it ourselves. When I get home I see the same valve is for sale on Amazon for $9.99 with free shipping. I know these dealers need to make a profit to maintain their store but this much of a mark up is outrageous.
