RE: Virginia I -81 corrider gas tax.

Gas taxes are a never ending folly. EVERYBODY benefits from the road and highway system, but the burden to pay for them fall on those who actually drive on them. Since the Arab oil embargo of the 70's, our Government has increased CAFE standards on a continual basis. Using less gasoline is good for the environment, less gasoline sales=less tax collected=less road maintenance, and the cycle continues. Many locales are discussing a tax on mileage driven. There again, the burden of road repair will fall on only those who drive on them. I guess that's the price you pay to be part of a mobile society.

RE: Is Good Sam worth joining?

Like any other advocacy group, check it out to see if it offers what you want. IMO, it don't matter what others think.

RE: home resort

Bumpy is correct that is what is known as the 125 mile rule. You are not allowed to use your reciprocal membership within 125 air miles of your home. Your home is defined as the address on your drivers license. That 125 mile rule only applies to classic resorts and it is from your home resort, not home address.

RE: home resort

Coast to Coast isn't what it used to be. As Coast affiliates drop out, they are being replaced with Good Neighbor Parks where use of trip point are no longer allowed, plus one cannot make a reservation online with the Good Neighbor park. It is necessary to call the Good Neighbor park you wish to stay at, hope they answer the phone, if they do, you give them your membership number to get your "special discount" I much prefer making reservations online. I have some trip points to be used, and when they're gone, so am I.

RE: How many seconds to extend your slide(s)?

Wow...that is slooowwww! I will check mine, but 15 seconds sounds about right to me. You should plug into 240 while extending, and cut that time in half. :) Jerry Considering your slides work off your 12V system, if plugging into shore power helps, you probably have a weak battery. Mine operate the same speed, regardless.

RE: Campingworld Tallahassee

personally I am getting very tired of seeing posts about how horrible CW is. everyone knows about CW and if you are foolish enough to buy from them that's your problem. I haven't bought anything from them since the eighties and I don't plan on buying anything from them in the future Why do you continue to read these posts?

RE: Grand Design

They are like most everything built now. Ive owned two GD 5er's, they aren't any better or worse as far as construction techniques. Where GD excells is factory support. Buying an almost six year old trailer, I don't know how much factory gratuity remains. I would look for the usual things in any used trailer and make your decision accordingly.

RE: Boarder crossing insanity - CBP gone crazy...

A few years back, we entered Canada through Niagara Falls. We had a motorhome and a small pich-up in tow. Answered a few questions, showed ID, then was told to pull ahead as we would be met by border agents. Three met us, asked us to leave the bus and as one detained us, two went inside the bus. The chap with us was friendly and pleasant as you could hear the other two going through our drawers and cabinets. Afer about 15 minutes the two exited and we were told were free to go. Nobody inspected the outdoor baggage compartments nor looked inside the pickup. I asked if he was going to check the pick-up, "naw, you're good to go". Not sure what that was all about. Haven't been to Canada since.

RE: GS Trip planner

We used the old trip planner for years. I am really frustrated that GS took it away. The main reason we used it was to upload the trip to our GS GPS. That option is gone. As a result, we will just plan the trip on the GPS. I see no reason to use the new GS trip planner. Ken X2 Since the old trip planner is no longer available, I've been using RV Trip Wizard. It isn't free, however, there are far more choices of rv parks and even fuel stop choices. It is awkward at first, but I'm beginning to like it. They claim to be able to download to your GPS, but I've had no luck with my GS GPS. I'm not computer literate.

RE: flying j and receipts

Corporate greed over printing a reciept? LMAO I use the truck lanes as I pump diesel. I swipe my RV Plus card, pump my fuel, and get my reciepts from the kiosk, which are usually near the entrance. No problems and I don't even get an opportunity to rant and rave. yes if you think about how much they are saving across the country by not supplying them it adds up. LOL, your own post says they are supplying them, you just have to go inside to get it. In fact, they will give you two, if you're so inclined.

RE: How to calculate the cost of RVing

It costs nothing to stay home and do nothing. I have a brother-in-law who did a "cost analysis" in regards to RV'ing. My first sentence is what he does now.

RE: Gas pumps and Flying J

OK, I'll try again today. I posted yesterday, post is gone, but the older thread has been closed TODAY about Gas pumps and Flying J. Tried to swipe and RV pumps in Eloy, AZ. Told I had to go in. If this is going to be standard, for Pete's sake JUST SAY SO. I have the Pilot/Flying J RV Plus card. The only time I need to go inside, if I want my receipt, or, if there is trouble with the pump. I always go inside to get my receipt via the kiosk they have , usually near the entrance. I don't bother with the GS Swipe & Save card.

Attempted CW on-line order

I went to purchase a few items from CW this morning and encountered an error message regarding my credit card, so, I tried a different card, got the same error message. Strange, Amazon had no problem accepting the card. I'll leave it at that, other than I'll need to call CW to remove the credit card authorization. BTW, the item I purchased from Amazon was $7.00 MORE but the aggravation was less.

RE: Insurance cost

Could someone explain why my new billing has jumped from last years $267.00 to $409.00??? Why are you asking the forum? Why not call your insurance carrier? SMH
