RE: RV toilet paper

I see no difference except the price, for me the harder the paper the better;) Somewhere a hemorrhoid surgeon is smiling and thinking about his soon to be motorcoach. ;)

RE: Is this normal for a 30 amp breaker

Related story: While investigating empty spaces in my TT, I found that a hot wire was not even screwed into a 20A breaker. It was just bent in such a way as to make frictional contact. That's a fire waiting to happen even in a stationary home. Pulled the breaker and found why it was that way. I couldn't get the screw to move so that it would accept the wire. It was frozen in place from the breaker manufacturer. So instead of picking up another breaker, some Forest River worker decided to take the easy way out and put me at risk. I took the breaker to my small town dealer's service manager and even with his tools, he couldn't get it loose either. Would love to meet the guy who installed it ftf.

RE: Lubricating manual tongue jack - it binds

Use a penetrating light oil to start with and give it some time to work its magic.

Recommend me a Vacume Food Bagger

In the market to buy a good one to bag up some meals for the trips. Also want to bag up a few other items as emergency kits for the TV. All suggestions, stories, and smart remarks are appreciated. TIA!

RE: Theft from dealership

If I bought a new RV they would be more then welcome to keep the torture device they call a mattress. I have bought several new RV'S and have yet to leave the dealership with the mattress. They can have the garbage tv as well. I can't understand why anyone would even want this stuff let alone stealing it. Same here on the mattress. He'd fit right in with the CW bunch I dealt with at the Knoxville branch. The sales mgr was also the one who tried to physically intimidate me into buying a TT. But yeah. theres not enough Personal Responsibility in the world today.

RE: RV toilet paper

A quick search shows Georgia-Pacific is on a list of companies that support right-wing causes and should be boycotted. I guess it does make sense that a discussion about toilet paper should morph straight into politics :B. Dave^^^^^^^winna!^^^^^^^

RE: Do we or don't we?

Talk with your insurance agent about what your medical costs will be. And for god's sake, don't believe financial advice from strangers on the internet. Just use us for ideas that you can investigate further. Everyone has different circumstances, but from what you have said, (imo) holding out to Medicare age could really make a difference in your cash flow.

RE: rv registration

I know that some states have such laws, but taxing a non-land/real estate property year after year just seems so...............socialist.

RE: Confessions of an RV Salesman

There are exceptions. My local small town dealer is one. They will have, at most, a couple of dozen various RVs on the lot at any given time. We were on a RV lot a county or 2 over and struck up a conversation with a nice couple who were also shopping. We shared experiences and then she said "whatever you do, don't buy until you visit the small town dealer in XXXXX. They will treat you right." Contrast that with the local Camping World who tried to cook numbers and then tried to physical intimidate us when we laughed at that feeble attempt. I tell the story at every opportunity where I camp. Word gets around a lot of the time.

RE: Tips for Traveling with Other Couples

Don't travel together every day, go to the same CG every day and the same places. ie Meet up and share along the way. They should do their own research and you may be interested in what they find. Friends have different interests. Discuss what happens with say a more extended repair or other delay - I'd suggest staying in touch and meeting down the road. This is what I was going to say. There's bound to be enough difference of interests for each of you to take side trips and generally meet up to do the things together that you want to do. Talking about it in detail up front cant hurt at all.

RE: snowbirding

...In the panhandle- HoHum in Carabelle, Topsail Hill SP in Santa Rosa Beach. In MS, Buccaneer SP in Waveland. +1 for HoHum. Super nice folks- staff + campers. We also stayed at St George Is SP. Isolated and QUIET. Bit of a drive to anywhere from there tho. Now you are all gonna laugh at me for this, but I have stayed in 5* hotels all over Europe and I've never seen nicer bathrooms than at Coastline RV Resort(the higher priced CG, not their regular CG). Trust me, its worth the price of an overnight stay to see those bathrooms. I took dozens of pictures (yes, it was empty!) so I can build me a bathroom like that in my next house.

RE: Southern destination w kids week of New years? Where to go?

For Myrtle and with kids, Ocean Lakes CG has a lot of on site entertainment for kids. Its a MESS in summer, but winter should be pretty nice there.

RE: capital one credit card

^ Switch your mailing address to a PO Box before you go FT. Get all your cards and accounts you want/ need with no hassle. And if something changes down the road, deal with it then. ime, post offices gladly allow you to use their street address + your POB number as anything else(eg, #, Apt, suite, etc) if someone requires that you have a "street" sddress. Ask them. Our small town southern PO encouraged us to use it to the point that it sounded like Policy. So you'd list your box #456 POB address like: joe blow 1002 Smalltown Street, Apt# 456 Anytown, State 00001 Added advantage is that UPS and FedEx deliver packages to them as well.Bank software will instantly identify that as a PO Box and will almost assuredly raise additional red flags. Prob true, but we've never had any problem with it.

Or run thru your old posts in the time frame that you remember discussing it.

RE: Extended warranty

Long Answer: A warranty of any kind is only as good as the company issuing it. If you are unfamiliar with the kind of quality that RV companies build, you need to read some more. Short Answer: no. Qualified Answer: maybe, depending on who sold it to you. On our first TT (incidentally a Rockwood also) I had an electrical issue shortly after warranty expired (factory had OBVIOUSLY installed breaker in a very unsafe manner). My local independent small dealer fixed it without question and apologized for my trouble. So, again, it depends on the rep/honesty of who you are dealing with.

RE: Are these stickers needed??

I always remove all advertisements and the "required" stickers. The ones that may have some possible utility value, I paste back onto the inside of the pass thru door. And they can KMA if they don't like it. Like dodge guy said 'it fell off' if push comes to shove.
