RE: why do renewing members get a raw deal?

you've never heard of giving new customers a one time price discount or other incentives? Yes. I have heard of it. Are you serious? Yes I am serious, by your posts you made it sound like you had never heard of new customer incentives, which especially surprised me when you said you run several small businesses. My apologies if I offended, it just surprised me.

RE: why do renewing members get a raw deal?

Normal and ordinary. That doesn't mean it's moral or fair. I run several small businesses and I can't imagine doing something like that. You run several small businesses and you've never heard of giving new customers a one time price discount or other incentives?

RE: Empty parks with no open sites.

One way to help this would be to make reservations 100% prepay in advance, and cancellations require a 2 week notice - or you lose your prepayment. There have been so many times where I read about people using "the system" to reserve and cancel at popular places in order to get what they want. Fort Wilderness is a prime example of this - or at least was 10 years ago, the last time we were there. Hmmm... When I posted the above, I was thinking about when people book sites the moment they are able to for popular times, but then cancel when they actually figure out when they are going - and get a refund. That was common at Fort Wilderness, and it annoyed the heck out of me. People gaming the system to get prime campsites, while also getting all their money back when changing their reservations. If you reserve a site, you pay for it. As to paying for a site and then not using it... that doesn't bother me. Same for wanting to reserve 2 or 3 (or more) sites but only "camp" on one to give yourself more room. As long as you are paying for the campsites. So... happy camping!

RE: Camping Safety

Camping safety seems the same to me these last few years, but... In my small town, the car break-ins, outright car stealing and store shoplifting is definitely more than it used to be.

RE: Unhooked for the night.

I don't think it is any different with a 5th wheel? For just an overnight, and if the TT is level, I'll leave it hooked up.

RE: Curiosity of RV Park parking?

.... Some are even parked horizontally across the front of the site. .... If this is what I think you mean, parking in front of / across the front of the camper, I do that a lot depending on the campground. With smaller sites, if we park the truck next to the TT sometimes it takes up the room where we would be under the awning or where the fire pit is. I have also done that at some campgrounds to "passively" "protect" our campsite from people walking through it, especially at state parks - where there might be more people not used to the "un-written" rules of campgrounds. To me, it doesn't look any more or less bad than any other way of parking.

RE: Annoying

At least CW lets you shop first! At Cabela's, you take two steps into the store and they have a person asking you to sign up for their credit card. What about online retailers? Many (if not most) online purchases from stores come with a popup thingy that explains how much better your shopping would be if you got so-and-so's credit card.

RE: CC safety

My wife has been using a card like that for awhile, no issues at all. She likes it a lot. Wife also has her card setup for the alert for every use. I get charge alerts from my credit card (Capitol One) if a charge seems to be uncommon - and I very much appreciate that. I have thought about getting the alert for every use... but considering I basically use a card for everything now, my phone would be constantly beeping at me! lol

RE: Dually tire service/installation

Hello all, we have an xplorer 230XL class B ( tires are 245/75R16 load range E)and it's time to change tires. we live in Miami, Fl. and I am able to purchase the tires online at Walmart and delivered to the house or tire shop. but I'am having trouble locating a tire shop to do the work(most don't want to deal with dually's). I was told by one shop he could do the installation but cannot balance the inner tires. Is that a possiblity? in other words, is he pulling my leg? Thanks for your inputs in advance. What kind of "tire shop" are you talking about? Many franchise tire shops don't work on "truck" tires and just say no. As posted earlier, look around for a tire shop that works on truck tires - local gas station will probably know someplace. Also, sometimes buying tires separately and bringing them to a shop may not save as much as you think (or save anything), because a lot of shops include the cost of mounting and balancing in their price for tires. When you bring in "outside" tires, they charge you for mounting and balancing. You might want to double check on your pricing. I am a huge proponent of finding a good local repair shop and getting to know them. Any extra cost to have "my" local shop work on my vehicles is very much offset by them getting me in right away when needed, and also NOT doing work if they find it isn't necessary. I have found over the years that my local repair shop has excellent prices on tires, because they give one total price (labor included) for the tires that I buy through them. And they will buy odd size and "other" brand tires for me if I want. Also, although my local shop doesn't officially work on trucks, they have made an exception and worked on small dump trucks (F350ish size) for me in the past.

RE: Minute Man National Historic Park

Thanks! As of right now the weather is looking pretty good.

Minute Man National Historic Park

We are planning on camping near there soon. We went there years ago and visited the visitor center and the Concord bridge. This time we want to walk some of the "Battle Road"... but I am having trouble figuring out where to park, how much to walk, what to expect. The website is setup oddly, at least to my old timer brain. For people who have walked the battle road, where did you park? How was the walk? Any things we should be looking for? Thanks!

RE: Hello from a new member and a question

Seems that most 4 bunk bed trailers are 30' and over, but there are some under. These links show a few, along with longer ones: https://camperreport.com/5-travel-trailers-with-quad-bunkhouse-layouts-for-families/ https://campersmarts.com/camper-bunk-bed-floorplans

RE: Tires? Balance or Alignment

My first thought was similar to time2roll, may not be the tires or wheels at all - check the drivetrain, especially the CV joints.

RE: Owners manuel

Any particular reason? I have found owner's manuals for campers to be useless.

RE: Travel Trailer Towing Recommendations

We were thinking of a Chevy Tahoe, GMC Yukon or Toyota Sequoia, rather than a truck. Thoughts on that for towing? Is there some reason you don't want a truck? Size? Those SUVs are almost as big as a pickup truck. Comfort? Pickup trucks these days are basically luxury mobiles. Have you looked at 4 door or extended cab pickups? Almost always come with higher payload and towing capabilities, you have plenty of room in the cab for stuff or people, and having a pickup bed to carry stuff is great. If you want to really do it up get a cap for the bed of the pickup and you have a big SUV. At least you know what you have to tow, which is better than getting the tow vehicle first and then buying a camper too big for it!

RE: Good Sam Credit Card from Cometity Bank

You don't have a problem with Good Sam. The problem is with the bank that issued the card. If Good Sam chooses to work with this credit card company, then it is a problem with Good Sam. At a minimum it reflects badly on Good Sam, and if Good Sam says they have nothing to do with something with their name on it... then it reflects really badly on them. You would think that a credit card company dealing with RV'rs would have some understanding of working with people traveling all over the USA.

RE: Email Issues - Just looking for ideas..

If the spam seems to be originating from a "legitimate" email, have you contacted that person to let them know? I have Yahoo email, I just click the obvious spam emails as "spam" and Yahoo seems to stop any further emails from that address. I do try to make sure it is not a hacked email from someone I know, in case some legitimate emails might be mixed in. As far as I know Yahoo won't block a domain like gmail.com, plus I wouldn't want it to. I don't think you want to block an entire domain, that would block way too much.

RE: 2021 F150 trailer disconnect alarm issues

It seems like it is fixed! whooho! Whatever the reprogram is that the dealer did, seems, so far, to have fixed the issue of the random trailer alarms (and door alarm). If anyone runs into this issue, it is fixable by reprogramming the trucks computer. On a surprising note, it cost me nothing - yea, it is a new truck, but I was waiting for an "office copay" or something like that. AND!! They didn't try to sell me on getting an oil change, tire rotation, or fresh blinker fluid! Maybe the service department (which in my town has a very poor reputation for trying to "upsell" stuff) is trying to actually get better!
