RE: senior pass

Typical of gov to sell you something then reneg once they have your cash. That said, the last place I want to be is some place that needs restricting the tourists somehow. So no effect on me personally.

RE: Wish us luck, pray for the marriage

Youll be fine. We've done a month in a 186 with a Large Dog. Only complaint was when 1 of us needed a nap, it was hard for the other to be quiet unless s/he left the TT.

RE: Who has sold everything and started rving for life

How can you put a price on their leaving? Surely that is worth way more than any reasonable storage fee you can think of....

RE: Sleepless nights

Seriously, Chems (legal or not) are not the answer for sleeplessness. Exercise. And rem that as we age, our need for sleep often changes. Your goal is to find what is right for You.

RE: Want to start an RV park...

You're not the first to come here seeking advice. Look around, there other threads on your topic. That was my first thought. My second thought was to find a local lawyer to form a LLC for your venture. After that, see what the lawyer advises re starting a local business. And good luck!

RE: Warranty work on TT v 5r v MH

If we're talking new vs new vs new, it's purely luck of the draw. As mentioned, they're all boxes with furnishings inside on wheels. No reason for a moho to have more issues than the other 2. But you gotta count the tow vehicle in the equation with the other 2. Yes, just looking at new v new v new. But NOT looking at tow vehicle at all. Just at how much Quality the manufacturers put into their new product. I didn't intend to discuss Total Troubles with one vs the other. Just thinking along the lines of how much quality parts and workmanship the companies put into their products. It seemed to me that there are many threads/posts discussing the problems with TTs from the factory and lamenting that finding Quality there was dang near impossible. I haven't owned a MH, but the folks I know that had them didn't seem to complain as much about them. Maybe its a 'type of person that buys' one of the other. Obviously from the posters here, I missed the boat.

RE: Warranty work on TT v 5r v MH

Interesting, folks. Thank you all for your thoughts. (some folks pls rem that I am only talking about warranty work- of course the more 'things' one has, the more 'things' that can go wrong eventually)

Warranty work on TT v 5r v MH

I've been at this RV thing for a while now and it is my impression that (proportionally) there is a lot more warranty work done on TTs as opposed to 5ers and MHs. And less to a MH than a 5er. This makes sense as more money spent seems to = better build. What do you all see/think about this observation? Does it fit your experiences?

RE: Thousand Trails/Encore Trails Collection info?

The only part of the Collections add-on is the pricing structure. I'm not concerned with the $199 as advertised on their website, but I find it odd that it isn't prorated and renews on your TT anniversary date. Our date is in March, so if we added it today, it would be $199 for 3 1/2 months, then another annual renewal cost of $199. Why make it an annual fee based on the date of enrollment...the fine print I guess! Maybe I'm not following you guys but couldn't you just start a new membership today in another name-say your DW/DH or even the dog's name? That'd give you a full year at the full price.

RE: jack pads

I use the engineered composite plastic decking boards- thickest ones I can find. If you need the wider than you can find, place them side by side and then stack the next layer 90degrees to the previous one.

RE: RV storage - how much room is needed?

Also remember your angle of attack when considering your overhead clearance. If your ground is all flat, then you are fine, of course.

RE: Quiet side of the Smokies

We are local to that area. Townsend markets itself as the Quiet Side of the Smokies. Our fav CG there is Big Meadow CG which is right on the river and next door to a rafting company. Its also our fav place to do Thanksgiving as everyone there brings a dish to the hall and the CG supplies the meats.

RE: Non-renewable Lithium...Fact.

In 1970, I read a paper that 'proved' that we would run out of lead by 1982. I cut out the article to remind me to fact check it when the time rolled around. And dang if we STILL haven't run out of lead. or peak oil. or a hundred other things that went full chicken little. Commodities are subject to Capitalism (til gov gets involved in stealing from all parties, of course) and thus will never run out. Youll only have to pay more and more as the supply declines. Eventually some bright bulb will figure out a way to recycle it or find a cheaper substitute. Or an entire new tech will come along and obsolete the entire thing anyway. Don't sweat it. But if nobody had pointed out the issue, started the development of recycling, would we have the lead we need? (And some of the technology used in recycling is used in the mines to protect the miners and people living in the area) As for "Capitalism will save us"; We have proven, to the capitalist at least, that without pushback from strong labor unions, or government regulation, capitalism will save everything for fewer and fewer people. Did you bother to read my entire post? If recycling was the solution as you said then it proves my point. Looks like that flew completely over your head.

RE: RVND 7710 GPS No More Maps

Any guarantee or warranty is only as good as the company that stands behind it. Sad to hear that RM is like that. Thanks for the info, I wont be buying anything from them. 1 other thing- when a company stops honoring what they promised in long term service, it may be a clue that they are in financial trouble. I have seen this twice where the company went bankrupt within a year. oh, and whatever you and I think a word means after the fact, the warranty/guarantee is a legal enforceable document and the words therein mean whatever the legal/common usage of the time is. It DOES NOT mean product lifetime unless it says product lifetime. You don't get to add words after the fact. (and no im not suggesting this is worth pursuing in court like come crankster is going to post)

RE: What is an RV Resort??

I think 'expensive' is going to be area related. Maybe the terms less expensive and more expensive relative to the cg's in the immediate area would be better.

RE: Pigion Forge TN

fwiw, I despise tourist traps and that area is THE definition of one. But everyone has his own tastes and I salute all of them! +1 on the Dumplin Valley CG. We've been known to stay there when they have their bluegrass festival and its a good cg. Close to everything (mostly) without being where you cant move at certain times of the day.
