RE: I Am severely dissapointed.

Get a lawyer RFN and launch a law-suit. Do NOT wait for them to to get their act together. Gary Haupt This is terrible advice. And I am a lawyer. All that will do is cost you lot of money with very little if any benefit. It may cause the repairs to slow down while they make sure "every "i" is dotted and every "t" is crossed". Give them time to sort it all out and make the necessary repairs. Probably just a spot that didn't get enough caulk. Perhaps you could even get up on the roof and look around, find the problem, and fix it yourself. Someone once said, "When owning any RV, you must be real handy at fixing things or real handy writing checks to get things fixed. While under warranty, you must be real handy at waiting months for sub standard repairs".

RE: Going full time with dogs

Are you going to be traveling the country in your RV or is it going to be your stationary full time residence? If the later, then I strongly advise AGAINST a RV. Nothing about them is designed for full time stationary, residential living. You would be better served buying or renting a mobile home or even modest traditional housing.

RE: Manassas location

I am sorry for your problems. I hope you are not living in your RV as a permanent residence as your letter suggests, as that certainly compounds your problems. Many manufacturers cancel any warranty on a RV used as a permanent residence. Regarding Camping World, for whatever reason, they seem to have many complaints of a serious nature. Sure, they engage in many more service repairs than most any other dealer so the number of complaints should be higher. But it does seem that the complaints are caused by inept and uncaring employees. That is inexcusable. Remember each appliance is covered by its own manufacturer's warranty, and you may be able to find an independent service facility that will honor that warranty without going through Camping World.

RE: 5W40 or 15W40 in 6.7 CTD?

I am always in favor of doing what the owner's manual, written by the people who designed and built your vehicle, says to do rather than people on an internet forum say to do.

RE: Camping World Myrtle Beach

I am glad the OP had a good experience, and I hope he has many years of enjoyment with his new RV. Many find Camping World to not be competitive with pricing, and especially so with on line purchases. Some have had horrendous service experiences. Maybe they are like the evil step child- when they are good they are very good, but when they are bad they are very bad!

RE: 1972 Ford RV - Can't find any info

You are kidding, right? That thing is beyond restoring- it is not even road worthy enough to be towed off. The current owner should get a roll off dumpster and a front end loader and scoop it up into the dumpster and take the remains to a landfill. RIP!

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

We own our own rv spot in Key Largo, Fl, but will be staying right here in the high country of NC until it is safe to go. Our county here has only a total of five deaths and just a few hundred cases, while our county there has a few thousand cases. It is a no brainer for us ! Guy I wonder what the percentage rate of infection is, not just the total. You may find that where you plan on staying is more infected than your Florida location. It is not just the number of infections or deaths. Example: the population where you are is 2,000, but there have been 1,000 infections and 100 deaths. The population in your area in Florida is 200,000 with the same 1,000 infections and 100 deaths. It is easy to see in this example where one would be safer.

RE: Henry Tropi-Cool VS EPDM Roof Coatings

The problem with the "rubber" roof on RVs is the owner. They are obsessed with cleaning the roof annually, or usually more often. They wash away the protective layer thus exposing the roof to more UV rays and another protective layer develops until it, too, is washed away. Soon the entire protective layer is gone, exposing the black base, which requires roof replacement. Commercial applications on buildings last 30+ years because the building owner doesn't wash the building's roof all the time!

RE: Hard to find a full-time spot

Recreational vehicles, by definition, are not designed for permanent residency and are not built to any permanent housing code. Many local jurisdictions have banned using them for permanent housing because of those codes. Manufactured housing (mobile homes) faces the same issues as they are built to a HUD code but not local building codes.

RE: Arkansas SP $40 Dog Fee - REALLY ??

Good ! I would like them to charge $50 per dog, Then when we took our morning walk we would not have to worry about some dog come out snarling at us. Just out of curiosity; do you obey the length of the Parks leash law? Do you let your dog do it's business at your camp site or do you do like every other dog owner and walk it to someone else camp site. Guy Wow, too bad parks don't charge a grumpy old man tax. X2 1,000 times!!!!!
