RE: What part of Unsubscribe don't you understand?

I was hoping someone from this organization would see my OP and reach out to unsubscribe me but it's obvious nobody is minding the store with the exception of the volunteer moderators in this group. The next unsolicited email I get I'll tag it as spam and I'll never see another again.

What part of Unsubscribe don't you understand?

I recently renewed my GS membership and I foolishly gave the person I was speaking to my email address. Since then, I have been bombarded with spam email from GS and affiliated companies every single day, even though I have hit the Unsubscribe button several times and updated my preferences. Please respect my wishes and stop sending me your unsolicited garbage. You're nothing more than a spammer to me at this point and I will be blocking you forever unless you address this issue now.

RE: Cool video from airstream. EV self propelled trailer.

Knowing how Airstream likes to price its products, I'd say this trailer would probably be priced at around $200K.

RE: New to site. Looking for advice between 2 TT models.

As a generalization, Winnies are usually considered superior to Forest River products. That said, either can be either good or bad on any individual unit. Look at both carefully, look for fit of cabinetry, materials used, plywood vs particle board, hardwood vs plywood etc, then decide. Generally freestanding furnishings are better than built in. Appliances will likely be comparable. Depending on how you intend to camp, tank sizes may become important. If you are looking at new, you may want to compare warranties. Happy hunting What he said. I owned a Mini Lite for a couple of years and was not impressed with the materials and workmanship. In order to make then "Lite" they use thinner materials to cut down on weight. I weigh 200 lbs and the floor on my Mini Lite flexed (sunk) when I walked on it. Did I mention the vinyl flooring came unglued in the middle and I had a giant air bubble underneath it? Compare the dry weights if they're similar in size. Go with the heavier one.

RE: Gas prices.

We'll probably see campgrounds closer to populated areas more crowded and distant ones less crowded. On the other hand, if fuel prices stabilize before the camping season gets under way people will travel farther from home.

RE: Gas prices.

Way before fuel prices started going up, the wife and I have been talking about driving less distances in our "yearly road trips" and spend more time in one place. We typically drive close to 8,000 miles in our yearly road trips and probably another 2,000 additional miles a year in shorter trips. We always considered ourselves more travelers than campers who happen to travel in an RV. After RVing for nearly 20 years and having crisscrossed the US and parts of Canada a few times, we decided this year to travel no further than 1,000 miles from home and stay put longer in two or three areas. The fact gas prices have gone up is purely coincidental to our decision to drive less. The upside to the high fuel prices for us may be more camping spots will be available as some people cancel their travel plans.

RE: On demand water heater and boondocking

We owned a moho with a Truma waterless hot water heater and we did not waste any water. I suppose by Winnebago placing the water heater by the bathroom it had a lot to do with it. Also, Truma heaters are supposed to be very efficient (and pricey.) I have been told by RV techs Girard water heaters are not very good.

RE: “Under hood generator”

For a while I entertained the idea of getting a Class B moho and joined 3 different makes FB groups to get myself familiarized with Class Bs. If memory serves me right, Roadtrek may have been the pioneer in using the so called “under the hood generator”. I followed the groups for several months and came to the conclusion UHGs systems were fraught with problems and the reason some RV manufacturers use them is strictly to save money. I'm old-school and prefer old-school generators to an alternator with a fancy name in the engine compartment. Onan recently came out with an inverter type generator for Class Bs and it is very quiet compared to the traditional generators.

RE: Internet & satellite tv for full time 5er

The Playmaker looks like a good idea if you sometimes encounter tree issues with where the RV is parked since it is portable. We currently have the Hopper 3 and 2 "Joey" receivers. The trav'ler looks like a better option for us as it will pick up 3 satellites simultaneously and would be compatible with our current house system. The Playmaker can also be installed on the roof.. The cost of having an activated Wally receiver is only $5/mo if you have a Dish residential account. As you probably already know, the Playmaker can only tune to one satellite at a time. For us this isn't a hindrance since we only watch satellite TV on one TV. As long as you use a Wally and a dome you are pretty good. However, I prefer to record what I plan to watch and watch it on my time schedule and without all the commercials. For that you need a Hopper and a Hopper needs a full size open face antenna, either manually setup on a tripod or a roof mounted automatic. You can record with Wally and VIP 211 receivers by using an external hard drive. You pay a one time fee of $40 to turn on the feature on all Dish receivers you own and there is no monthly fee. We paid the $40 fee many years ago and had the feature turned on on several receivers throughout the years. We currently use a Western Digital hard drive to record.

You can get a Winegard Dish Playmaker antenna with a Dish Wally receiver for as little as $329. That's what we use. Dish Combo

RE: Walkie Talkies

I recently purchased this set and I'm very pleased with it. It worked as far as 1.7 miles in a semi-rural area. COTRE Two Way Radios

RE: Where is EVERYONE??

There’s also a problem with every new poster being attacked and told ‘use the search function’. This site is most unwelcoming. Probably the number one reason why this forum has been in its slow-death bed for a long time.
