There doesn't seem to be as much activity on this site lately....especially since the season has started. Are Facebook Groups killing this site? I feel that I get better info from here than on Facebook. The groups I am a member of there are full of smart comments, rude people and the repetition.....my oh my the repetition! 147 answers with most of them saying the same thing!!! How about y'all? Do you visit here as often or look for answers from other sites?

FB does okay with some stuff today, but what happens when you want to research older stuff that is older than a couple days. It's almost impossible with FB. Plus too hard to try and read subsequent answers to questions. And, IMO, too many people on FB just tend to be stupid and rude.

Seems like it attracts the people with limited attention spans.

Same here. The problem I find with this site is it's not that user friendly. A few updates like being able to post a picture directly from your desktop would be useful.

I signed on to FB when DW told me that the GMC group had a good number of local owners that were not part of or even unaware of the existing community of owners.

From that I managed to get maybe a dozen of the two or more dozen into out Saturday lunch group. That was a good start, but I am not sure if I am going to try to revive it even though Michigan is not as locked down as it was.

The most disturbing thing was the level of bad - Even dangerous advice presented there. Our coaches are all old and not many know of their special requirements. None on that is all that involved, but some is different than the truck-based RV. So far I have seen bad advice taken three times and the end result was that the repairable coach was sold as scrap when the event ended.
