RE: Long term parking

Self storage lots should be ok for that.

RE: Was rear ended on the highway

I would not get a lawyer involved until you see what the insurance is going to do. Most of the time in my business when lawyers got involved they were the ones that got the money after the mess was cleared up. You are dealing with a very good company, give them a chance to work for you.

RE: Travel Trailer vs. Motorhome (my situation)

I also remember reading a post here a few years ago that fifth wheels are much harder to resell than bumper pulls because they are more expensive and require the special hitch. Maybe that's not true either, but it sounds reasonable. And I've seen posts here talking about a problem with fiver handling; I think they called it "chucking". And some posters here say they have driven both and they think bumper pulls ride smoother. (That's sure to raise another reply from jshupe telling everybody again that I've already made up my mind) I think a lot of the great hype about fifth wheels may be that's what the salesman told them, they bought it, now they need to believe they made a good decision. Of course the salesman is going to say it's better because it has a higher price tag.I have pulled all kinds of trailers for years and anyone who has will tell you a 5er or gooseneck is much more stable on the highway and no sway from wind or passing trucks.

RE: Travel Trailer vs. Motorhome (my situation)

No it is not. It is hard to find a TT with auto-level.Not anymore. I was at a dealer yesterday and most of the trailers on the lot had auto level. I have had both MH and 5er. Set up is about the same but the 5er is more comfortable for us. I hate sitting on a sofa looking sideways at a tv and getting a stiff neck. My recliners are much better.

RE: Tires again

It was only after I started reading much on RV.net, that I ever worried about when my tires were made. And of course the only tires I've had blow out were just a couple years old. I like newer tires, now that I know they have a date. But, personally, I think too much is made of it.I agree with you. Its not like they were sitting out in the sun waiting to be sold. The only blowouts I have had were with 3 yr old Nexens.

RE: Good Sam poor road side assist

Nobody cares where you shop. X2 To the OP. These are the rude type members we have now that are killing this forum. Don't let them bother you as most folks here are good people.

RE: Was rear ended on the highway

I would not be surprised if both are totaled. On the bright side I have found in all my years in the body shop business that USAA is a great company to deal with.

RE: Ford 460 engine questions/issues

I agree. I would Ford long block it. Motor has had some trash to get the bearings like that. Hate to think what the cam bearings and cam look like. By the time you tear it down and vat the block, polish or turn crank and clean it all back up your better off with a long block with a Ford warranty good nation wide.

RE: Roadside Assistance problem

Coachnet and goodsam use the same service providers. But it seems coachnets call center asks more questions in regards to the service needed so they can inform the service provider.Most roadside company's use the same providers. The difference in service is who pays the best. No one in our town will do RSA for GS.

RE: When to sign and what to sign? New 2019 trailer purchase.

I would not sign anything until you walk thru again. If this is a Camping World dealer I would never sign and run away.

RE: Purchased TT (undisclosed salvage title came in the mail)

You really have no recourse here but I don't see a big problem anyway. They told you upfront where they got it. Just go camp and forget it.

RE: I asked for trouble and I got it.

My buddy lives in Maryland and has a 04 like yours. His brake and fuel lines rusted out several years ago. Replace them.

RE: Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act

Have you contacted the manufacturer about your problems? I have found lots of times the dealer is the real problem.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

Fuel tax is the primary source for road funding and is one of the most fair methods as it is directly tied to your use of the system...but EVs circumvent this. Fair? Hardly! I drive my SUV about the same distance (35k miles) per year as my neighbour drives her Honda. Except, her Honda burns (pays taxes on) roughly 700 gallons of gas, while my SUV burns roughly 2,250 gallons, or approximately 325 % more and so I pay about 3.25 times more tax to do the same amount of driving. Can someone say (with a straight face) that my ride creates more than 3 times the amount of maintenance of roads that her Honda does? Mind you, she also has 4 kids that go to school for free, I have no children, but I pay more than 10 times the school taxes she does........ nothing is free, let's get that straight. and you chose a vehicle that gets 1/3 the gas mileage she gets. that's a choice. and presuming that your schools are funded via property tax you apparently own a home that's bigger, in a better neighborhood and/or newer than hers. that's also a choice. if the roles were reversed would you be complaining? got a better solution? I think so. Drop the school tax and charge a fixed price for every kid you have in school. That will take the cost off the property owners that have never had kids and place it where it belongs. Apt dwellers, renters, illegal's with a bunch of kids all get a free education at home owners expense. So who paid for your education? Not you.My parents!
