RE: Good one for Kids: DO Dump Cake with a Twist

RE: Autopay anyway!

Interesting, I ask for someone to "reach out" and help and get no response from GS. Another poster after me complains and someone "reaches out" right away. Choice of words I guess. Anyway, I no longer need your help, after spending an eternity on hold I was able to talk with a live person who says they have reversed the charges. Next step, cancel GS account then the CC. By the way, I've been with you since 2004

Autopay anyway!

Sometime back, maybe a month, I talked with a GS RS agent and asked my account be taken off auto pay (no way to do that on website). I was assured it was removed. Unfortunately I trusted the agent (my mistake) and did not record time date and name. Today I see I have been billed for another year against my wishes. I have been on hold for about 1/2 hour waiting to talk with an agent to try and reverse this. Go figure, all agents are busy, how convenient. I had decided I no longer wanted or needed GS RS, hence the request to not auto renew. This is shady at best and unethical but from what I read here this is SOP anymore for GS. Honestly I have no problem with the service, I just don't need or want it anymore. I would appreciate it if someone from GS RS would "reach out" to me and fix this. Lee

RE: Giving it up

Thank you to all who expressed sympathies and good wishes. My bride and I had 20 years camping and traveling and were blessed to see so much of this great land. I cannot fathom ever enjoying camping alone especially with all the memories with her but like they say, "never say never". The Aliner, even tho paid for needs to go. Memory care ain't cheap and it's an asset sitting in the driveway. Again, thank you all for the well wishes. Lee

Giving it up

I posted a while back asking opinions on living in a travel trailer. Lot's of good advice and suggestions. Just thought I'd give an update. My wife is in Memory Care in Fresno and I have decided to stay in the family home to be able to visit her when this Covid thing lifts. Selling the Aliner as camping and traveling without her holds no lure for me. It's been a great time traveling this nation with her next to me but time to "give it up". Not much joy in life now. Stay well and cherish those you love, time is fleeting to do that. Lee

RE: Living in a Trailer

Again, I thank you all and especially appreciate the voices of experience. I threw this out here to see what others either have done or would do, I'm not disappointed. All good advice and all worth considering. There are upsides and downsides to each option. Sell the house, buy a trailer, keep the house, buy a trailer. I know I need to take my time and will altho I would like to make a decision by late spring. Also, thank you for your sympathy, it's much appreciated. I lost my first wife to death by cancer, now my second wife to dementia. Believe me, the death was easier to handle. Sincerely Lee

RE: Living in a Trailer

All good advice. First I should have said I am 81 and my DW is 90, she has dementia and has had for over 5 years now. I am putting the Aliner up for sale as it is for camping only and would be really tiny to try and live in. At my age the home is becoming more and more difficult to maintain even tho I am in good health.Cost of maintaining a trailer is almost nothing compared to maintaining this home. I have two daughters in The Boise area and a son in Fresno. I'm not interested in travel, we were blessed to do plenty of that before the dementia came along. I want, as some have suggested, to be able to summer in Idaho and winter in California. Don't intend to get anything bigger than what my Canyon can tow. Many decisions to make in the coming months and I'm getting what I asked for from this forum, opinions, experience and advice. Thank you. Lee

RE: Living in a Trailer

Thank each of you for you input. I know I need to give it time. Each decision from this point on will be difficult but not as difficult as placing her there. I like the idea of living in a trailer and know I can get by with little. I.m in the same kinda situation as TenOC and thinking along the same lines. Kids get what they want, salvation army the rest.Anyway I thank you all. Won't be doing anything for a couple of months at least but feel I need to move forward.

Living in a Trailer

Sadly I just placed me wife in a memory care home and find myself facing life alone. Thinking of selling the house (too many reminders here) and buying a travel trailer to live in. Looking for input from anyone that has done this. Do you stay in campgrounds or mobile home parks? Is either option cost effective. I have family here in California as well as Idaho and want to spend time in both locals. Please share with me your experiences, both good and bad. Thank you Lee

RE: Rving coming to an end

Sorry for your troubles and pray she gets through this. We too are at an end to camping, traveling. Bought a new Aliner last year, got to use it one weekend, then Covid shuts stuff down and now wife's dementia taking its toll. Staying close to home but we've had 18 years of fun traveling and camping this great land. Time to make room for the younger generations I guess. Lee

RE: How to tow & push BACKWARDS?

Put in the post but chain a pulley to it. Attach a cable to the front of the rv go through the pulley back under the rv and attached to your pickup. Now your pulling it in. This sounds too easy and sounds like the least hassle to geterdone.

RE: Watch That Diamondplate!

Back in the early 60's when I went to work for Standard Stations they taught us to remove all jewelry,especially rings, before working on batteries. I still take it off to this day.

RE: Bathroom on the road?

We have had a porta-potty for years. This year we added a pop-up shower tent. On day trips those and a plastic bucket of TP and hand sanitizer ride just inside the tailgate for day trips. Wife holds leash while I set pot on ground, pop the tent over it. How come your wife keeps you on a leash? :B That's funny. We have an Aliner and just pop it up to use the porta potty. Takes thirty seconds to open the trailer. Day trips, we too use a tent and porta potty. Both work well.

RE: Did you notice..........

Can't speak for any place else, but here in BC you cannot get a camping spot for love nor money. Anywhere within driving distance of a city is packed..and forestry sites..packed. any lake...packed....and any wide spot on a back road has a camper in it. The other thing...most of these campers are new to the game. And how did they become campers extraordinaire? They went and bought...everything and anything that will sleep people. Tents..tent trailers, trucks n campers, A, B, C's...and few (none) had the cash, so...debt. Like crazy debt. I am on an off-road camping FB page in BC and everyday, all day....where can I find camping? How do I get fresh water when camping in my new....? How and where do I dump? Gary HauptThere was another thread running, before it got sent to the Siberian prison camp of "around the campfire" that offered one explanation of why there are so many new people RVing. That explanation is they have had their normal vacation plans cancelled by travel restrictions and they are going to take a vacation come hell or high water. Contrary to the beliefs of a few on these forums, many, many normal average people have a lot of disposable income. They spend 10s of thousands of dollars on vacations every year. This year, those 10s of thousands are being spent on a camping trip, because what else can they do? Next year, the camping equipment will begin to rot away in the basement or storage building and they won't give a darn. If they bought an RV, a percentage will like it enough to keep it around, the rest will sell them for a loss, shrug their shoulders and plan their trip to Europe. Nothing new, been happening forever, people jump on the flavor of the day. See Beanie Babies, Precious Moments, trading Cadillacs for Pintos in the 70s, buying tulip bulbs in Holland during Tulip Mania in 1636. This too shall pass. The question is though, will it pass before I do?:W

RE: missing shore line

Me thinks the best advice would be to find a qualified RV tech and have it done by him. OP obviously doesn't understand the electric system (neither do I) and mistakes can be costly and even deadly. My .02

RE: Great experience with Roadside Assistance

I too have had nothing but good service from GS. Your experience echos my recent experience only mine was on hwy 108 east of Knights Ferry. Same professional service and stayed with us (via phone) until the tow truck arrived. Good job Good Sam.
