RE: Purchasing question

I sold my last TT to a local guy who has impeccable creds. We went to his bank and they transferred the money to my acct(he never saw my banking info) and i signed over the title to him in the presence of the bank officer. Security for everyone- even folks you like and trust.

RE: Do I need sway bar or equalizer?

If it was me, I would get a weight distribution hitch and a friction sway bar. I've been towing trailers for about 30 years, and every trailer I tow over 2500 - 3000lbs would have one if at all possible. You can check them out at ^^^Best Answer^^^ I tow a <5k TT with a Tundra rated just under 10k for trailering. I ALWAYS use an Equalizer setup.

RE: Canada/US Border still shut...

'Minuscule' is what a mask does for you or others re viruses. Look up the sizes. That said, I want to revisit Canada as much as anyone but a country has the right to run its borders any way it wants. Hopefully we can all get back to where we were (or better) soonest.

RE: This could be a problem

RE: Trailer Life Magazine

Could be nothing more than the Wuhan virus fallout, but over the many years of my life, a thinning mag is an indicator of magazine health, eg the possible impending death of the mag. I've seen this 4 times since the 80s.

RE: I-40 traverse from Asheville, NC to Gatlinburg, Tn

No prob other than closure of 1 lane from time to time (closed the other day according to the traffic sign I saw). Road is great. And I echo about staying away from Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge unless you like the touristy trap stuff. If that's the case, youll be in hawg heaven there.

RE: Looking for trout in Tennessee

The Clinch River at and upstream of Clinton, TN was named best eastern trout fishing in the country a few years back. Tailwaters of Norris Dam. BUT, we have had so much rainfall this year, the river is running about as high as it gets and isn't very fun fishing at that level. KOA on the interstate is nice along with state parks when they reopen for camping (Norris Dam SP, Big Ridge SP, Caryville SP). Heres the short term release schedule from Norris:

RE: Money from government

You all enjoy spending my money ya hear? I just hope you spend it on something that you truly need or enjoy. I'm getting the same thing I always get from the gov...squat. Tho you could argue its better than a sharp stick in the eye.

RE: Optimism in the RV Industry

Had this idiocy not arrived, I would have bought a new RV by now- we were in the final stage of narrowing it down and deciding on a dealer. I'll still buy it when this is over, but that isn't going to help anyone in the short term.

RE: Average monthly rates?

Agree with the numbers above. Know that rates, just like summer, are highly location and facilities dependent.

RE: Camping World Fail (Again)

I'm actually smiling, CW's incompetence and dishonesty just makes me smile. Tried to order a BAL spare tire carrier on-line this morning using the "coupon code" issued to me that was on back of their new catalog I received last week. The coupon was for 'up to 50% off any single item'. Of course during check-out, the coupon was denied. Called them and after talking to 6 different agents in 3 different departments (I swear this is true) finally asked for a supervisor who told me I had to first go to another CW on-line site to redeem the coupon and would be given another code to use at checkout. Did that and low and behold, the new code (now at 10% off), was denied also. All this took me over an hour --- for nothing. Their new catalog went in the trash and I'm done with them for anything. Will not renew Good Sam either. I've read lots of negative posts about CW and now I see why. I suppose business ethics isn't practiced at this company. Sad! Yes, huge kudos for this site allowing criticism of the parent company. That said, the Knoxville TN CW tried to cheat me blind and used hi pressure sales tactics exceeding anything I have seen from a used car salesmen (bait and switch, shuffling papers to hide numbers, "just initial here that you read this", physical intimidation, etc). I haven't been back and will never buy anything from CW again. It purely amazes me that this kind of behavior is tolerated (encouraged?) in this day of the internet where it will certainly be publicized. And I enjoy telling everyone at the campgrounds of my experience with CW.

RE: How to remove gutter spouts from TT

3 of mine just fell off in a stiff wind (as in motoring down the highway). I pulled the other one with a slight tug and replaced them all with caulked better ones.

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

They've taken hundreds to jail for violating the stay at home orders. If I were you I wouldn't chance it. Bypass Delaware and any other state that will confine you for being out and about. Better yet, stay in Florida. Wait, what I am reading is that many jails are releasing nonviolents from jail as fast as they can. Gotta call BS on this one without link to something other than world net daily or snopes. OP: please stay in Fla. Its much safer there for now.

RE: Fed Cuts Rates: Will RV Rates Follow?

"...The Fed cut rates 1/2 percent this morning in an effort to..." I like how the OP knows what the Fed is thinking. If he can do that consistently, he must be beyond filthy rich. The other option is parroting something he read but he seems much more intelligent than that. OP: if your dealer is quoting 5.49, shop around with your bank and credit union and such. I'll bet you can beat that regardless of recent Fed action. OK, I'll bite. You don't need a crystal ball to understand why they cut rates today. The Fed has 2 prime objectives. What are they? Times up. Put your pencils down. 1 - Control inflation 2 - Reduce unemployment Inflation is below their 2% target (according to their figures). Unemployment is at 50 year lows. So why do you think they cut rates? I guess it had nothing to do with the huge losses in the stock market last week. Class dismissed. LOL. I guess that means you're filthy rich. LOL. I just love it when someone can read minds. I sure would like a headsup here when you know the next Fed rate move!

RE: Chattanooga TN

I was listening to a podcast on my drive home yesterday and the person being interviewed was a security expert born in Tijuana. He was talking about his travels through the US giving presentations on security and cartels and he mentioned his visit to Chattanooga. He couldn't have been more in love with the place. He called it "Wakanda for white people". Just like the mythological African hidden world of Wakanda from the Marvel universe, he described Chattanooga as the most amazing place on earth, and none of the locals want you to know about it. I've never been there and have no frame of reference, but I loved this man's description of it. Just stay off the interstates at afternoon rush hour. Not as bad/long as say LA or Houston, but its pretty intense in places. Also be very careful if you choose to attend a downtown 'festival' that they periodically have. Gang-related shootings seem to occur at these about once a year. Don't forget to visit the Moon Pie store!

RE: Who is responsible for discounts?

I notice the question and replies are addressing who is responsible to ask for a discount. Who's responsibility is it? Wrong question. What about rather addressing the issue from a public relation aspect? If a business asks a customer if they have any of their qualifying discount the business will grow in the customers eyes and admiration. If the customer has to ask has to ask for a discount the customer feels negative toward the business in that they have to ask for a lesser price. I remember in my high school days while studying the psychology of business that the customer felt much better toward the business, if for instant they were buying loose seeds, (that was back in the day) and the clerk measuring out the seed would make sure not to over scoop the requested amount but make sure to re-scoop a second or third time making sure to get the exact amount the customer was requesting. It made the customer feel that the merchant was an extremely honest person and desirous to make sure the customer was not cheated. The difference was if the clerk put too much seed into the scale and then proceeded to remove some to correct the amount. It made the customer think the merchant was a stingy and cheap person. The question for the campground owner is which image do they wish to relay to their customers? What lingering "taste" do they wish to leave on their customer's palate? I have witnesses a lot of businesses succeed and a lot of businesses fail in my 79 years and I do not believe any failed because they were overly nice and customer oriented. There is a saying in my neck of the woods; "The customer is always right." One unhappy customer is one too many for any business. Who's responsibility is it to make and grow a business?I put "the customer is always right" in the same bucket as feel good sayings like "follow your dreams" and "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again". Fact is the customer is not always right, following your dreams can be stupid if you have unobtainable dreams and not everything will be successful no matter how much you try. And thousands of businesses that were customer oriented have failed. The local pharmacy has likely lost out to Walgreens and CVS. Your local hardware store and lumber yard went kaput not because they weren't friendly but because Home Depot and Lowe's crushed them. The local cafe lost to McDonalds and goodness knows Walmart put many nice, friendly people out of business. And when was the last time the milkman delivered fresh dairy products to your back door? Customer service is only part of the big puzzle that is a successful business. I fear my post went far over your head. I had the same feeling, PC.

RE: Myrtle Beach - Ocean Lakes, Pirateland or Lakewood

Thanks all - I appreciate the insights. We settled on Lakewood. We want to be at the beach, but also want the amenities and activities for the kids. This is a 'fun' trip, not as much a 'relaxing' one, so we are ok with the energy and activity of the campground. Seemed like Lakewood was likely the best balance all around. I think you made a good choice. OL is next door, so you can mosey on over there one day and see them for yourself if youd like.
