RE: Campsite Squatters

I've never understood this human need to be in places where you're clearly not welcome/wanted. 16 little words with a very powerful meaning derived from deep routes. I agree with you mkirsch....... If someone does not enjoy my company, I can be gone, for good.....never to darken your 'door' again. Too many wonderful places to go to. If one is taken, find another. If someone doesn't want you around, family, friend, or stranger, pack up and leave for far off places of your choice. Life is too short to be caught up in the drama of unhappiness, hatefulness, or being mean. I live my life, you live your's. Don't get in my way, I won't get in your's. Treat others as you wish to be treated. If others treat you differently, move on. Relax, be appreciate of the ability to move across this country with relative ease, freedom to make your own decisions, and within a cautioned level of security. Time to get off my soap box before someone finds me a nuisance and if someone does, everyone is entitled to their own opinion! Safe travels to all. Lakeside

RE: Toilet Smells Horrific When Flushing

Too funny, I have heard this "Vent could be BLOCKED" theory for so many years but NOT one example of it really happening. Toilet WILL allow odor to escape when a fan is running plain and simple. Sounds simple enough. Remember, the 'grey' water tank can smell as bad or worse than the black water tank. You may be doing everything fine to vent the black tank and flush it properly, but forgetting the grey water tank could be problematic as far as smells go. Good luck & keep us posted. Lakeside

RE: Campsite Squatters

Being rude is not against the law either, and yet most people have a problem with that. If you think most people agree with you, feel free to get the rules changed. Are you trying to be insulting or is it just my interpretation? My point was that not all civilized behavior toward each other necessarily requires rules. Rules are generally created when people start acting in ways that abuse the trust that was given. Obviously BLM and FS dispersed camping rules don't mean you can use recreation lands that belong to all of us to store your stuff and hog the best spots that others could be using. I feel your pain jimh425. Somewhere along the road, some people lost, in their upbringing, the difference between 'right' and 'wrong', or treating others as you wish to be treated. Simple lessons, but too easily forgotten or never taught. Leaving RVs at campsites on off days happens in the great North Woods of Maine, too. Have seen this action many times while camping in this beautiful state. During moose season hunting, it is almost impossible to find a spot that is unoccupied because many people set up their rigs many days before their scheduled hunts. I just keep my mouth shut and move on to another less desirable location. Kindness within human nature appears to headed south. Lakeside

RE: Slide failures?

A year and a half after purchase and after a wonderful trip to Alaska, our Palomino TC developed a slide problem. One side would work fine, while the other side allowed the motor to 'ratchet' and slip on the track. The slide would not close evenly and eventually would not close at all. I had to muscle it into closed position while DW hit the slide retract switch. Back to dealer and 10 days later, fixed. They removed the slide and discovered the hole that was made for the slide at the manufacture was out of square and binding on one corner because the hole had been cut incorrectly by 2.5" too small. The corner that was binding bent the slide motor track and broke the gears off the motor. I was OUT of warranty, but paid nothing. My dealer convinced Forest River that they had made an error at the manufacturer's plant. This dealer went above and beyond to help me and to cover the costs. Truly amazing in this day and age. I will not mention the dealer in this post, but if anyone is interested, PM me and I will give you the dealer's name. Great place to do business at. I would not hesitated to complete repete business at this dealership. I do NOT work for or have any other affiliation with this dealer other than being a retail customer. Safe travels to all, Lakeside
