RE: Refinancing an RV

Call the lender who now has the loan on the RV. Ask what their current rate is. Then ask them to Lowery the rate or you will take the business elsewhere. Nothing to loose.

RE: Rallys

Really? You really think that rallies will be scheduled when there is a pandemic killing thousands of people that spreads easily people to people? You really think rallies will be scheduled when businesses have been closed and church services closed to prevent the spread of this killer virus? You really think the public health authorities would allow a gathering hundreds if not thousand of people RV enthusiasts when they don't even allow anyone to eat at a dine in restaurant in much of the country. I don't know what to say or think about that!

RE: Tallulah Gorge SP, Georgia

No really steep grades at all. A little bit of a hill to climb at the entrance but is nothing, really.

RE: Flatulence causing CO/Propane detector alarm?

Smoke, carbon monoxide, and propane detectors all have a shelf life and false alarming could be caused in part by out of date detectors. Having said that passing gas is methane, and it may be closely related enough to propane to cause a detector to alarm.

RE: Keys closed

I assume you mean the Florida Keys. You mean there is a road block at Homestead and no traffic or persons are allowed further south? You mean that everyone there is forced to leave? You know, a little more information, just a little effort on your part, would be helpful. Otherwise your post is useless.

RE: Tampa, FL to Birmingham, AL - Sightseeing... What to do?

The Air Force Museum in Pensacola is world class. The Air Force museum in Warner Robbins Ga is also very good. Georgia Museum of Agriculture in Tifton Ga. which is an 19th century village and farm is good. Ocmulgee National Historical Park Macon Ga has Indian culture remnants from beginning the Ice Age.

RE: Water Heater Relief Device

The relief valve is doing its job and is functioning correctly. IT DOES NOT NEED REPLACING. As the water heats it expands. In the small RV system, there is little room for that expansion to be absorbed, so the water heater is supposed to have an air pocket that can be compressed by the expansion. Remember, air can be compressed, but water cannot. You can solve the leaking relief valve problem by doing three things: 1. install an expansion relief tank, 2. re-establish the air pocket in the water hater, or 3. merely open a hot water spigot (valve) in the RV.

RE: Overnight stops (truck stops, etc) with shore power?

I know that some truck stops have evolved into full service overnight stops with power, heat, WiFi, etc for truckers. All for a fee of course. Not anymore! The company was "Idle Air" that provided air conditioning, heat, and internet access, but they went out of business years ago. Now, WiFi is common at almost every business stop along the highways, and is even offered by many car and truck manufacturers for on board WiFi. Many over the road trucks now have on board APU's that provide heat and air conditioning instead of idling the truck engine all night. However, there are no "hook ups" at almost every truck stop. Regardless, they would not be designed for RV's! If you want hook ups, why not just stop overnight at a RV park?

RE: Investing in "EcoPro Products" Protection

Buy a can of wax and do the exterior. Buy a can of Scotchgard for the interior fabric. Don't waste your money on the dealers product. THIS

RE: RV Loan and Insurance Info

As an attorney (insert attorney joke here), I can tell you failure to answer any question truthfully on a loan or insurance application is fraught with dangers for you. Of course, if they don't ask, then as Bill Clinton said, don't tell! With the loan application, if a loan is granted on false information, the lending institution has the right to call the loan immediately due. If you cannot pay the loan off, they will repossess the RV. On an insurance application if insurance is granted on false information, the insurer can refuse to pay a claim even if the premiums are fully paid. The insurer can also immediately cancel the insurance once they discover the falsehood and refund any balance paid. Your best policy is be completely truthful with any questions asked.

RE: Financing RV Lot

We plan to rent out lot much of the year. You will not have anyone wanting to rent that lot "much of the year." In Florida, the season is the Winter months. The rest of the time, your lot, and hundreds of thousands of lots just like yours, are empty. The season begins after Thanksgiving and after New Year's it is full occupancy. The exodus begins in March and by the end of April, the snowbirds have left. The RV lots all go unoccupied until the migration starts again next Thanksgiving.

RE: ? Have you purchased from Walnut Ridge or Modern Trailer Rv

However, Modern Trailers offers something called RV warranty forever that covers something like 85 components. Is it worth it or not. One draw back is you have to bring trailer back to Modern Trailer every year for inspection and pay a fee of 175$ to keep your warranty forever . That, my friend, is a total rip off designed to fatten the dealer's wallet. Don't fall victim to these sealer scams. In fact, any dealer offering something like this has given you a lot of information- they are more interested in conning you for their monetary gain than to treat you with respect in hopes you will continue to do honest business with them. How do you think they will treat you after the sale?

RE: Is A New 2018 Still New?

It should be priced like a 2018 model. Check prices for similar used units, and consider what an extended warranty plan would cost on a used 2018 model and add that price to the fair market value of the used unit. That price, plus a small mileage allowance, should equal what you are paying for that new 2018 model. I doubt a dealer will discount the price that much on his new unit! Also, your purchase inspections should be just like buying a used 2018 model. The previous posts about inspecting caulking, tires, batteries, and all systems are very good. In essence, you are buying a unit that is at least several years old and has been used by the dealer to show to prospective buyers. It is a used unit in that respect. The previous post about it being a used 2018 model as soon as you drive it off the lot needs to be considered seriously. What will your "new" 2018 model be worth 1 month after you buy it? Your purchase price should not be greater than than figure!

RE: Bleu Ridge Parkway

Traveled the Blue Ridge Parkway many of my favorite drives. Don't be scared by the posted low clearances. The tunnels arches, and the clearances are for the sides where it is, naturally, lower, The center line will accommodate any RV. You may have to hug the the painted center line of the road in a tunnel, but that is the only problem. The road is very drive able. Peaks of Otter campground will b difficult in a big rig, but the other campgrounds should be OK.

RE: Good Sam discount

You know some battles are not worth fighting. This is one of them. Your fault for not mentioning the discount before the transaction is made. How much is the discount- enough for a happy meal at McDonald's? Learn from your mistake and move on with your life.

RE: Where to park on 2 day travel from park to park

Hello, driving a distance of more than one day from one park to the next. Where do I stop with my 30' travel trailer and truck for the night? How about another RV park? They rent sites for the night, too!
