RE: My thoughts on the "Rapid Response Team"

Others above have said "no retailers are perfect"....well, it isn't necessarily that they aren't perfect, it's that they don't seem to respond in a timely manner to FIX the problems. Our complaints about dealers/repair shops seem to fall on deaf ears. For too long people have tolerated bad customer service and said "they aren't perfect".....well, darn it, WHY NOT? yes, things happen, yes, sometimes they aren't perfect, however I feel a LOT of the retailers nowadays say "so what" and go about their merry way. TRY HARDER. I, too, have questioned why we don't see the SOLUTIONS posted here. GS says it's up to the customer to post the results. WRONG!!!!! GS if you want our business, SHOW us you're solving the problems!!!!

RE: What is your BEST words of wisdom?

Never go on a long road trip with a child that has just learned to whistle. :B

RE: Did some damage to the TT

Sorry for your BOO - BOO. Am I seeing this correctly...the metal channel is screwed to the trailer, then the rubber gasket seals it up???? Yes, I am trying to learn from your mis-fortune. The front, bottom of my trailer is seperating a bit, and I am planning on removing the trim, then re-chaulking where the siding goes under the trim. Mine looks as if the siding is too short in that area....I was kinda hoping the corner trim could be "tightened" up. Looks like it may do just that....judging by what our autopsy revealed. Can anyone tell me how hard it is to slide the rubber seal out of it's channel? Sure wouldn't want to tear it. My DH didn't have problems.. sprayed a silicon lubricant on the channel and it slid right in.

RE: Terrible Experience

I did a little research on this one. $52.50 a night......can have up to 6 people in the site.........and they want to charge $20. for 2 guests visiting???? OUTRAGEOUS! The web page DOES say they have "day use" for those that don't want to camp.....but I can't find anywhere where it says $20. for guests visiting YOUR camper. Yeah, this place is out of line and corporate needs to be notified.

RE: Kitchen Faucet Upgrade

The one I want is $251 at Lowes.....we found the equivalent at NW RV sales in Portland, OR for $150. Haven't ordered it yet....will when we get back from 1 1/2 month fishing trip. :) :) Oh...the one above is too tall for our cabinets. :(

RE: Concerns about Dr.'s,prescriptions etc.

We cluster our regular doctors appt's for the periods when we'll be visiting our upstate NY cottage, and if needed, other visits are done using urgent care centers or doctors recommended by our health insurance carrier wherever we are. Prescriptions are filled at a national chain drug store (We use CVS), and we can order refills for pickup at the closest store to our location online. Our mail is managed by a forwarding service that remails it on request, often to General Delivery at a post office near us if the RV park we're at doesn't accept guest mail. We do our banking with a federal credit union that has online bill paying and photo check deposits, and use ATM's or store cash backs for pocket money as needed. Many banks offer similar services. DITTO....exactly what we do, too. :)

RE: Class A MH vs 5th wheel/pu truck

We've owned both.....though we prefer the 5er for the both of us because of the roominess, for you I'm thinking a Class A is best. It DOES take two of us to hook up the rig. :) I don't agree that hooking up the car is as much work as hooking up a car. You can move the hitch around to fit on the RV...whereas, the 5er requires you to be dang near accurate for hitching...while going backwards!!!!!

RE: Walmart in Cottonwood AZ

That's too bad. A few years ago we went to the Thousand Trails Campground on ThousandTrails Road south of Cottonwood on Hwy 279. Just as you turned off onto TT road we could see a # of rigs boondocking on the left side of the road. They actually had a fantastic view!!!!!!! Can anyone tell me if that area is still available????

RE: Organ Pipe National Monument

:) :) Organ Pipe Cactus NM was one of my favorite parks this last year. There is a 21 mile loop (gravel) to take that is absolutely breathtaking. :) We're planning on a couple of weeks there next year....if you haven't caused it to be overcrowded by announcing what a cool park it is!!!!!! :B

RE: State of Emergency in Washington?

California is REALLY bad, Oregon is low....South Umpqua river is at an August level (which means WAY too low)...and Washington (well, I haven't heard much about them). There isn't any snow on the passes (Cascades)....GADS, it only will get worse from here on out. Wildfires are the scariest!

RE: What happens when you are distracted

OOPS.....and I understand about distraction. What amazes me are the OTHER campers that should know better, that stop you in mid hookup or unhooking.....yeah..you wanna visit, come AFTER we set up the chairs and open the can of beer!

RE: Good Sam Insurance - Now Cancelled

My car/RV insurance has stayed the same....and just renewed for another 6 months. :) So not ALL are going up.

RE: Looking for an RV screen room

We had a Carefree "room" that added to the awning. Last years...about 5...only reason we don't have it is because we can't attach it to our electric awning on the new rig. :) We laid a mat down on the ground....it kept our cats in pretty good (except the Houdini --- and that cat can get out of anything). Be aware....some parks (if you go to RV parks) won't let you put them up.

RE: Opinions on EZ Open Handrail? (Stromberg Carlson)

I like the idea. DW is short and our new TT is quite high for her to reach the door handle without climbing up the steps and then back down again to get the door open. Not overly expensive either. Same here....I love the idea!!!!

RE: What part of I DON'T WANT JUNK MAIL do you NOT Understand?

Those that mention tossing the junk, or recycling, or fire starters are missing the fact that the OP uses a mail forwarding service. She PAYS a service to forward or dispose of her mail. I wouldn't be happy either if I was paying a service to dispose of junk I didn't want or ask to receive. I read the OP post three times and did not see where she says she has a forwarding service. That said, any decent forwarding service like the one we have, lets us shred junk mail, without charge, and before forwarding. Thus no expense to forward unwanted mail. Maybe I misread. I was the one that said I pay for mail forwarding. They don't charge extra for disposing or shredding of mail, BUT, I spend time on internet telling them to shred. And when you have limited internet, it's kinda frustrating. :)

RE: Help plan my family's Western States tour for 2016

Anywhere you take them will be GRAND. However, try NOT to miss the Oregon coast......it's so different from the California coast and they'd love it! Especially at low tide and being able to see starfish, etc.

RE: What part of I DON'T WANT JUNK MAIL do you NOT Understand?

I often wonder if Good Sam realizes how many people they LOSE because of these mailings. I, for one, am one that will NOT sign up. Sorry Good Sam.....but I'm full-timing and NOT spending my time online to have the company I pay to forward my mail, shred your ads.....what a waste of time AND money for you!!!!!! Come on...we ALL know where to go to find your products.....put your time and money into BETTER SERVICE!
