RE: Looking for reliable travel trailer

Most of the people nowadays are preferring to travel trailers instead of staying in hotels due to the COVID situations.. if you are looking for a travel trailer then this article might be helpful to you..Travel Trailers Who endorsed that article? The manufacturers of the 5 trailers in it? There is more BS in the FAQs than in a 50 acre cow pasture, such as if you will ever touch any they feature for $12K-$14K stated in the FAQ. Even the Little Guy Minimax starts @ $28K. The Bambi is @ $50K+, and the Casita starts @ $25K along with at least a 12 month waiting list to get one.

RE: Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons

Mr Wizard, mentioned the lines for buying TP. I'm wondering if the people that bought shopping carts full of TP, if they have used it all up yet? Somewhere is a guy who looks at the 187 hoarded cans of kidney beans in his garage, and scratches his head wondering what to do with them. Geezer= The folks who stood in line for an hour at Quartzite for a free $1.25 breakfast. Those at Harbor Freight who line up 20 minutes before opening for the free bag of 20 zip ties. The guy at the campground with a 48' DP adorned with 5 million candlepower of security lights, two bugzappers, 3 rat sized dogs that are left inside to bark all day when he's away, and a turbocharged leaf blower he uses every morning at 8 AM.

RE: Chevrolet exits all ICE production by 2035

We got 3 Christmas cards 1.5 months after the postmark date; I doubt EV postal vehicles will make delivery’s slower. Pony Express would have been faster. Well there's no De Joy in that. :) I think the new Admin will make the necessary changes to bring the USPS back to normal. LMAO... You mean Uncle Joe LMAO also but ROF. He sure got the price of gasoline back to normal quickly. Come on man.

RE: Buying RV from a far away dealer

Any RV we've ever owned I looked for the best deal and if it was worth it, travelled to get it. Often this was far away from our home. NEVER had an issue getting warranty work from my local dealer. This is my experience living in different states with different dealers. Communication with the dealer and the manufacturer is key. But never had a dealer turn down paid warranty work just because I didn't buy it there. That would be cutting off their nose to spite their face. People move, people travel etc. This isn't a problem. Not sure why some folks continue to say that it is. Maybe because it is. At Camping World near me they will do your warranty work if you did not buy from them. It might take them 3 months to get to it, another month or more to get the approval, and another or two to actually do the work. The entire time your rig will sit on their storage lot a mile down the road. I don't buy my RV's from CW and I also never had this problem. Ok, it doesn't happen at all since it has not happened to you. Got it. Perhaps all the manufacturers should eliminate this type of verbiage from their brochures based on your experiences. "your ownership experience is of paramount importance to us. Timely and efficient service, as well as maintenance of your product is a key factor to a positive ownership experience, while enhancing your lifestyle. The Dealer plays a significant role in your ownership experience and a Dealer located thousands of miles from your residence or the primary use location of your product will be hard pressed to provide you with the service you deserve. Below are a few things to seriously consider when making your purchase and choosing a Dealer: Dealers in our Industry are not franchised like automotive dealers and therefore not obligated to work on your product when it is not purchased from them. Our Dealers are independently owned and operated businesses. Service and scheduling is at their discretion and priority is commonly provided to customers that purchased from their dealership. Pre-Delivery Inspections and the customer’s product orientation educating them on their new purchase are often more thorough and convenient for both the customer and dealer when performed by your local dealer. Proximity to your dealership determines the ease of follow up on questions that may arise.Your first uses may result in some needed adjustments and tweaks. Often referred to as “shake down,” these minor adjustments are much more easily addressed by your local (and selling) dealer. Scheduling timely warranty repairs and adjustments through your local dealership provides far greater flexibility and convenience to you the customer!Purchasing locally allows you to establish longstanding personal relationships with your dealer, enhancing your overall experience and adding value in future transactions from product to product. Local dealers are more readily available to assist their loyal customers with product questions, user tips, and are more knowledgeable regarding uses and regulations within the dealer’s region.Your dealer’s knowledge of how your product is serviced and maintained can help to enhance its value when you make a trade. Buying locally provides you a greater opportunity to develop relations not only with the dealer principal and managers, but also those team members at the dealership who actually service your product. Buying locally helps you support local businesses who in turn support your community by providing jobs and aiding the local economy."

RE: Internet speed

"No one is advertising consumer internet services based on those units." What units are you referring to? Internet speeds are indeed advertised as either MBps or Mbps, just depends on whether the advertising unit knows the difference. Would you rather have 10 MBps or 10 Mbps? It does make a difference. What if it's advertised as mbps?

RE: Jayco?

Salesman said this model had really good insulation. Sure he did. What was he supposed to say? This model has really bad insulation? Fact is it has the same or close to same insulation as just about everything else out there that rolls out of Indiana. Sidewalls are 1-3/8" beaded foam that may get R7 on a good day. Anywhere they use fiberglass Batts such as Roof and front cap will just be thrown in by some fast moving worker with plenty of gaps and sloppy workmanship.

RE: Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons

At least without the free coupons you will not have to wait in line at the door with 30 geezers before the store opens, who are there to get a free $0.15 flashlight that doesn't work lol.

RE: Buying RV from a far away dealer

those dealers can't turn you away but neither do they have to put you ahead of their customers. my advice: buy locally or keep looking There is no shortage of stories around about local dealers who suck, even when you've purchased from them. I know of one guy personally whose new 5er sat in the service lot for 9 months of the first year at the local dealer he purchased from. The entire RV Industry sucks and bad service, especially bad warranty service, is embedded in it, and it is the rule not the exception. Just read an RV manufacturers warranty. How would you like it if Ford said on your new F350 if the wheel bearing crapped at 8K miles, you had to go after Wop Sing bearing manufacturing in Chinzou to have it replaced because they made the component? Wop Sing however is probably more of a joy to deal with than Lippert Components.

RE: Wonder if truck makers will start making 10001 # 1/2 tons.

Plus electric vehicles are a fraction of the cost to operate. Time will tell. Are they? How about after EV use and ownership surpasses about 50% or so, where do you believe electricity prices will go? Down? Supply and demand still applies. Who will pay for the infrastructure required? The clowns who run the show can not even keep up with the maintenance of current infrastructure. How about highway taxes currently paid for the most part by ICE vehicles through fuel taxes? Where will those funds come from? There is no free lunch. Add to it most EVs for the masses will not have the battery life nor replacability of say a Tesla in any way shape or form, but will basically be throw away cars. May be a good time to open a scrapyard. Fraction of the cost my ass. Time will tell indeed.

RE: What constitutes a "new" tire?

Some of you folks are nuts. Tire OCD perhaps. I have tires (Bridgestone) that were purchased on Ebay in 2016, mounted OEM take offs from a GM truck on the OEM GM wheels . They were stored in my garage 2016 - 2019. They are currently on the truck with about 25K miles or so on them and are going strong. Manufacture date is 10-15. My only concern is the 2015 air in them.

RE: What constitutes a "new" tire?

I was dealing with a local supplier of Toyo tires and had an appointment set...until I told him I wanted the tires to be within 1 month of manufacture. That did not go over well. Really?

RE: Chevrolet exits all ICE production by 2035

I don't see how our current power grid can support all the new EV planned for in the future, but I don't recall anything ever being addressed on this subject. Future power generation for EV's will be accomplished by converting Unicorn Farts into electricity by reverse osmosis and wishful thinking. That and some help from this knucklehead. https://i.imgur.com/js5Jqful.jpg

RE: Border crossings about to get even worse

This is old news, and an old US president. It has not been implemented at this point in time, and although I read the Los Angeles times every day, it's the first I've read of it. We have a couple of members who cross very regularly, even with cargo trailers, and so far, nothing. Spot on. The new US president intends to just tear down the gates and checkpoints and install high speed pass thru lanes like they have on an EZPass toll road. It should be the pinnacle of convenience.

RE: Ford Super Duty Owner's Manual

I find it intriguing that this is actually a thread with a question and discussion points..... So do I LOL. Perhaps it's not as intriguing as the threads were folks discuss state park campgrounds that will be installing EV charging at all the campsites which in reality may happen @ 2089, or the one about proper procedure to sanitize a black tank, but its a close 2nd.

RE: New satellite dish

What is the point? By the time you spend the time and effort to set up a dish on a tripod that automatically aims itself to different birds, why wouldn't you just set up a 3 LNB dish such as a Dish 1000.2 or better yet a 1000.4 if you can find one, on a tripod, and manually align it one time? The same amount of work and effort and hits all 3 birds used at the same time for less than $150. Then it's just a matter of having the correct wiring inside the RV to use whichever recievers you care to. The video looks like a couple of geezers in some retirement RV park decided to invent the better mouse trap. It's not as major a project to align a 3 LNB dish as the guy claims, but he is trying to sell an overpriced pile of equipment.
