RE: Good Sam discount

No other discount. Paid full price.

RE: Good Sam discount

I disagree. A career of stays at Holiday inn and Marriott. Never, ever did this happen. Loyalty programs should be easy, not hard.

Good Sam discount

When making a reservation to the lemon cove park, lemon cove California on 2/14 for 3 nignts I was not asked and forgot to give my good sam number. I emailed shortly after and offered the number, they came back and said no problem, show at check in and you will get the discount. I check in, get my card out and no, can't get it as reservation was already made. I have all the e mails to prove the conversation. Marcus, can you step in? This is a horrible way to run a loyalty program.

RE: Casita vs "conventional" small trailers

Good to see demand for quality. Too bad Elkhart is controlled by only a few. They need much more competition, both domestically and foreign.

RE: Help!!! Frame broke

This is a pitiful story. I have traversed this country in 3 years 7 times, all carrying 100 gallons of water. OP, if the RV industry could feel real competition, your situation would not exist. They can build junk because they can. No outside pressure to excel. Sad.

RE: Would I ever be happy towing with a half ton truck

I just watched a guy pull out of here with a massive 4 slide trailer. Longer than mine anyways. 1500 ram limited. I doubt he has 1100 lbs payload. Goodyear wrangler passenger tires. Its was way overloaded. Some real steep hills here and around desert city, winds are calm though today. I waved a good bye. Hope it goes ok for him. Something tells me it will be a challenging ride at some point.

RE: Would I ever be happy towing with a half ton truck

Maybe, the real tow rating is just a capability thing that's created by mfg for just durability but not for reality. My point is this is an rv forum. My 8klb load is totally different than 8klb of rocks, or a mini cat loader on a flat bed. We tow a huge wind load, it is not a factor in current ratings. My coach is just under 34 ft long. Its a square box with a rounded off nose. Its comparing apples and oranges. Stiff cross winds are a factor for all of us. Now add in western region canyons, passes and its a different world. Maybe a fudge factor of 30% or so should be deducted for rv applications. I know frontal is a factor, but why not side load as well? This is again why weight of the tv must be a contributing factor in stability and ease of towing.

RE: Would I ever be happy towing with a half ton truck

Another huge factor is where you tow. I found the ED overall was much more comfortable east of the Rockies. It still was a bit stressful in severe cross winds but the long grades, severe winds and consistent mountainous or high altitude will test the abilities of a TV. I also think weight of the TV is a huge factor in stability when confronting these conditions. Our CTD is almost 8klb. Stiffer suspension and that weight just commands greater control.

RE: Would I ever be happy towing with a half ton truck

I can speak as one who has recently gone to a CTD from an ED. Towing approx 8klbs in mountainous western regions and cross country with a ATC 28 front bedroom. Going on 3 years with this set up. Ill keep it simple. No comparison. I pass on passes, enjoy the scenery coming down, and much more relaxed at the end of the day. Heavy cross winds and long grades are a distant bad memory. I would never go back to a half ton again with this coach anyway. Speaks volumes gents, the ED did it, but this puppy does it so much easier.

RE: Would I ever be happy towing with a half ton truck

Well, my take on this could be the after coil suspension, and passenger tires all wrapped up in a lighter overall tv, that can cause sway in a high wind load combination.

RE: insulation on a 28 ft all aluminum

In a nutshell, although battleship reliable, and she has approx 37k miles in just 3 short years,the ATC is not an extreme cold weather coach. We find as it approaches below 30, then its time to move further south. Currently in desert hot springs. If you go colder then I would suggest investigating with the factory on what they offer as options.

RE: 6 gal electric hot water heater upgrade

I know it's propane but we love our Girrard instantaneous water heater. Tiny in size but big in performance. Its pricey,but never running out is priceless.

RE: Newbie To Full Tine

I would suggest buying anything with as little wood as possible. Especially flooring. Long term it is the Achilles heel of rv durability.

RE: Toy Hauler Door Capacities

I think our ATC is 4klbs. But a video is out of them driving a forklift on one at the factory. It was I think 6klb. It held.

RE: Jeep Ecodiesel, vs Pentastar, vs Ram Hemi, vs Ford Godzilla

Towing at elevation, with a high wind load is where a modern diesel shines. Then add in the braking capacity going down hill and it will be hard for me at least to go back to a gasser. If all my towing was east of the Rockies it just might make good sense to look at other options. Passing on passes and enjoying the scenery coming down is getting to be too hard to give up.

Something tells me the Ike is going to be a big disappointment for the big Ford.

RE: 2019 Ram HD

Its pretty much anything at this point. My takeaway after 8 pages. Glad I bought a left over 2018 CTD and added the 8yr 125k max care. Now,a new 3500 with a big time problem? Carry on please.

RE: Ram 2500 CTD in Africa

For many emission components, the expected service life is 100k miles. Many are not even warranted past 36k miles. A modern diesel has huge financial exposure past 100k miles. Go to the turbo diesel forum.its getting to make sense to turn them at 125k miles or less. The following is a brief comeback from one of lead moderators, I asked if my new 2018 CTD would be reliable past 100k miles. He's a technician as well, Ever had to replace the complete exhaust\catalyst system when a DEF injector sticks just destroys some $4k of emissions stuff plus itself? Do that ONCE then look at the bottom line on costs. What are you gonna do when the ignition module fails and it won't recognize that playschool key anymore? Just TRY to jump that truck into running to where you can get it fixed cuz you ain't doing it yourself anymore due to the fact it REQUIRES dealer programming to install and set it up. Don't ever do any one a favor jumping their dead vehicle in a parking lot, ANY little inattention or unknown problem will take out a TIPM or ECM and you are in the same boat. Do I dare mention turbos that carbon up, head gaskets that leak for no obvious reason, injector tips that break off, injectors that hang and melt pistons on a hard pull, and the infamous grid heater bolt that burns off and gets sucked into a cylinder

RE: Ram 2500 CTD in Africa

I think its a huge deal if this is a def, emission vehicle. Think about diesel quality, DEF quality, idle time. Speaks volumes if it is and how Cummins builds reliability into its design. I doubt those older rovers have any emission control. Your on a very slippery slope if range rover is an example of reliability. In fact any English produced vehicle for reliability is indeed questionable. Lucas electrical systems are a gem of failures historically speaking.
