Sadly the shine seems to have gone off the RV'ing lifestyle that many of us who joined this social media site enjoyed leading to individuals selling their unit's. Aging populations of the earlier RV'ing generation that started the Good Sam club and RV.net when the internet came alone also sadly are in decline.
People's social media tastes have also changed and I myself am struggling with the changing social media scene. Facebook and Instagram for the RV lifestyle to me seems very disjointed and difficult to navigate.

I really am troubled by the decline on here and by my own anxiety and negativity I am feeling towards the RV lifestyle with everything going on in society in both Canada and the US that has changed the atmosphere in campgrounds and the overall perception of declining safety from many different societal changes.
I wish I was not feeling this way starting retirement but we must make the best of it.
In a couple weeks we are heading out for Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg for a couple weeks so we hope to have a wonderful time in the RV to rekindle our love of the lifestyle.

The number of people RVing is increasing yearly. These types of forums are going the way of the flip phone and the dodo bird. Times they are a-changin.

“so I'm doing my best (even if I am long winded!)“

Your posts are detailed, not long winded. Interesting even if I disagree. Too many seek complete agreement instead of reading alternate views.

I know I'm migrating to message boards that actually work. The number of error messages and general problems here is ridiculous.

Look at 5th Wheels, all the various manufacturers group...

I don't have a 5th wheel, but just seeing the question of just this forum causing problems, I don't know...

I've posted to this site since around 2002 and have never had any issues?

I use Chrome for my web browser, so maybe if you are using your iPhone or Android or whatever, dunno?

I’ve been a Facebook junkie since it first came out but don’t use it in place of this or any other web based forum....same with my ham radio references (QRZ is my favorite). I like the flexibility of a website where I can search and see topics listed by category. I use 3 rv forums regularly: Jaycoowners.com, RV.net and iRV (my preferences in that order). This forum has a wide range of topics, most of which don’t interest me. The thing that turns me off about this site is the slow response to fix issues and seemly endless, under moderated arguments over the same topics (gas vs diesel, campfire vs no campfire, etc).

I agree that the number of posts are down. Probably people using other sites like Facebook. I hope this forum stays up because I like information it has. Jim2007.

What turns me off is the OP's who ask and never return.
