RE: Special offer RV magazine

our subscription to Motorhome was tos run thru 2022. when the switch to RV Magazine started the mailing label shows the same expiration date. we thought the first issue, for us, was awful. we're gonna get one more before we make a decision on continuing or canceling.

RE: Traveling in 23 ft trailer with cat

I've been full-timing with my cat for over 6 years now. I use a harness from Crazy K Farms- the yellow reflective one. Coupled with a retractable style leash, it allows the cat to spend lots of time outside with me. You won't be able to walk a cat like a dog, but cats like to explore. Just be prepared for those periods when he'll just sit and look around. I bring my Paperwhite. lol. our cat used to walk with us around the cakpground on a leash. then one day 'Samantha' refused the leash. my wife claims that the feral cats running loose in the CG told our cat to 'cut it out!'.

RE: Traveling in 23 ft trailer with cat

when we first started this RV thing we traveled with our cat in a 26' class a MH: the only pblm: one day she learned how to crawl into the dash from the driver's side and then she crawled thru the dash across to the passenger side. taking the dash apart was not an option so i use a small phillips screwdriver and gently poking her backside thru the vents i encouraged her to back out. from that point forward we used several small pieces of plywood to block the underside of the dash by the foot controls. cats are curious and can fit into pretty small spaces. when we traded for a new MH we had their shop "kitty proof" the RV...block access under the dash and a few other places (the shop guys still talk about it). my advice is to kitty proof your trlr.

RE: Norton Security

the problem with any and all security products is...you don't know what you don't know. if your security suite doesn't know what to look for it won't detect it. so saying you've been trouble free using product x is inaccurate. your best ways to stay safe are... - practice safe internet usage. don't click on links from unknown or unexpected links. - stay off of "those" websites - make passwords unique and change them often - if you use security software..and i do..use a layered defense. that means regular or automatic scanning with more than one product. - update your products frequently. i have mine set to update automatically.

RE: Credit Card Fraud

We had a charge on Chase Mastercard to Hertz. We hadn't used Hertz this year. Hertz had no record of the charge. Of course Chase removed it but if the wife hadn't reviewed all finances every day. they might have charged a lot. how they got money with Hertz showing as the recipient is beyond me. You can't rent a car for the amount they charged. i'll bet you can set up transaction alerts on that CC to instantly notify you of ANY activity on that card/account. we have ours set to notify us via text and e-mail for any activity >$1.

RE: New Thor motorhome towing guide

My favorite parts are: "To get your towing capacity, it is simply: GCWR – GVW." unless Thor coaches are somehow magical determining the true amount of weight a MH can safely tow requires a bit more work. the basic issue is that it is possible to exceed the GAWR (gross axle weight rating on one axle (usually the rear) and still be under the GVWR.

RE: 4' LED Shop Lights In Costco?

They had some on sale a while back for $20, 4' LED and the lumens were pretty high, I don't remember the actual value. But I thought it was a good deal, but when I finally got to the store, a week or so later, the sale was apparently off and they were $30 instead. Too rich for my blood. They were pretty nice though, motion detector, or variable time delay to shut off. And they were easily linked together. Looked good to me, just didn't make it in time. never crossed my mind that might be a problem or to check that out before i purchased i did check it out a while back when i took out the day’s recycling. i have a Lift Master opener and use their app and the car visor devices for remote operation. FWIW, with the Lowe’s LED light on that i referenced in my earlier post the visor remotes as well as the app worked flawlessly.

RE: 4' LED Shop Lights In Costco?

no link so not sure which Costco LED you'e referring to but i bought this one at Lowe's a a few weeks ago for the garage, it is bright!. and at a fraction of thr cost of the two at Costco that came up on a search. recommended.

RE: Anyone rent out their camper?

I have rental houses. I would set fire to my camper before I would rent it out. It is unbelievable wha people do to rental property. yup...we tried being landlords once and got burned..badly. never again and we wouldn't loan our MH to anyone...period.

RE: Anyone rent out their camper?

To me the idea seems crazy, but there is a lady that my wife works with that rents out her camper through one of those rental places. Apparently, she told my wife that with their 24ft bumper pull camper, on average they make around $2,000 a month by renting it out to people. I’m sure there are extra insurance fees, repairs, and other things that come out of your profit. I don’t think I could ever be ok with strangers towing my camper behind their vehicle, which may or may not be rated to tow it, by someone who may or may not have ever towed anything before, and could care less about beating it up and damaging it. It just sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. Does anyone have personal experience it this? Is it as bad as it sounds? There are some many little things I have to do with my camper as far as towing it, setting it up, using the heater/fridge/stove/oven…..having someone with no experience just hook up to it at take off down the road would scare the hell out of me. ask her how many and what types of repairs they've had to make to their rented RV. if the answer is 'none' then her honesty comes into question.

RE: What can you expect off MSRP?

personally, given the high demand and thru-the-roof sales figures for all RVs i wouldn't expect much if any. have you test driven either?
