RE: I'm actually in favor of high cancelation fees....

I was trying to be less harsh for some stupid reason - then you posted and woke me up. Second thought, yes, entire season, and loss of entire reservation fee. Cheaters need penalties that hurt them as much as they hurt other campers.

RE: I'm actually in favor of high cancelation fees....

Toedtoes -- good idea, step-up the suspension period, a week, then two weeks, then a month, then a season. Also, step the fines too, ten percent, twenty-five percent, fifty percent, complete reservation fee. IF people cheat the system at a cost to other campers, it's gotta hurt, otherwise, it won't curb the cheating.

RE: Flying J frustrations - Alternatives?

I find numerous pumps that will not take my CC, or will make customers go inside to pay. In either case, I'm, gone to another station. Too many "pay first" hassles, and too many lines when the PATP w/Card is so much more convenient. Easy enough to pull out and down the street. Especially with a Truck Camper ... might not be as easy with large TT or 5'er.

RE: Starting my research

Pickup truck and truck camper ... easy to load and unload, you can drive with it on or off, you can use your truck and leave it on the site --- It will go anywhere your truck will go. It has a full bathroom.

Does this file mean ?

Anyone know what this file is -- GUT339C.tmp or GUT14E1.tmp Having a glitch in PC and trying to locate files I don't recognize. I did a clean-up and dump history, etc ... but don't know what this file is and don't want to delete it even tho it's a .tmp -- which I think is a temporary file for something anyway?? It sits in Program files (x86) on Windows 10 Pro ... as a free file, not in a program folder. Thanks M44 Each file contains 23,600 KB

RE: I'm actually in favor of high cancelation fees....

Wonder why it is that RVnet campers can figure out a solution, but campgrounds cannot. That solution above will work wonders - cancel all days, or no days. If you cancel all days xxxx number of days or weeks ahead, you get a refund. If not, no refund. That will work very well until the cheaters figure out a way to cheat that too.

RE: Oregon to charge 25% more for out of state RV campers

NO one seems to take into consideration travelers buy local fuel, groceries, and pay fees for attractions and entertainment, including state taxes. Maybe every state should charge the same for all campers, then every state would probably get more traveling campers for longer stays, AND generate more state revenue overall. We cannot ONLY compare state park fees to arrive at all state revenues generated from out-of-state campers.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Thought about it ... as every other day when it's in storage - until next week.

RE: Cybertruck RV prototype pictures released

Not in a million years - two million years, on second thought. The sun will blink out first.

RE: “Pathetic quality”: RV dealers are fed up...

Quality and inexpensive do not fit in the same sentence - ever. We can sometimes choose one or the other, but not both. That holds true for most manufacturing ... Computers, phones, RV's, Electronic gear, Trucks. We can cry about price or we can cry about product failure. Personally, I'd rather cry about price, buy a product once, and have it last more than two days beyond warranty.

RE: Erratic fuel gauge

If it's an 8.1, probably a GM ... if so, dash panel might need replacement - cost about $400 ... had that happen to my 2003 in 2008, and that was the issue. GM knew it, but claimed out of warrantee - and lots of GM dash indicators failed in several years production around that time. Some failure of switching relays. Had new dash panel installed, that fixed it. Although several of my gauges failed, not just fuel gauge, but they failed one by one, not all at once. A little puzzling at the time.

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

Not so hard to believe when we depend on out-sourcing products we need ... how many of us would pay more, keep business in-house, and get our truck and products when we want or need them. Count me in !!

RE: new topic

Trouble is, there's only ONE average in the world, everyone else is either right of center or left of center. OR, maybe it's above center or below center. So, which is it? How about "Way out there"? :B Monkey44 would agree with Bob - and looking for an easy way back!! :) Probably need a space ship. Meet you at the crossroads.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Would be interesting to see 2019 >>> 2020 >>> 2021 ... especially pickup trucks.

RE: GM and others shutting down production.

Too bad we don't have the know how/technology/workforce/ability/desire to produce these chips in the US. $15/hour minimum wage would make that exceptionally cost prohibitive. No law against paying more than minimum wage for trained and skilled employees. If we had brought that work back to USA, we would not be in this dilemma. It's not just trucks either. It's the untrained, unskilled workers that are not worth that pay.

RE: New truck and TC.

We don't blame you - Love our TC ... lots of miles in it. Welcome back.

RE: LOCAST Receives Unfavorable Court Rulling

If you are using what they paid to produce then you should pay them for that use. Too much is too much though ... every few minutes, bombarding us. And we do pay, we pay for cable or satellite so they can show us the product. IF the ad convinces us to buy the product, we pay for it, if not we don't - it's on them to convince, not us. Nothing is more annoying than: Right at an action scene - We'll be right back, after the break - or during a baseball game, cut our Big Screen in half and post some AD scene, again and again. Believe this, if I want something, I know where to get it. AND, if the AD didn't convince me the first time, it's not gonna convince me the next ten times either - more likely, it will make us buy a different brand. And, I didn't buy a big screen TV, so a portion of it could devote part of itself to that same bombardment of messages from 'sponsors'. I understand, ADs, we see them between segments of 'free' TV. But now, it's pretty much a constant - including that band across the bottom. Wife and I have nearly quit watching anything. We do subscribe to some apps, and pay the fee to get uninterrupted movies.
