RE: renting out your RV? Success stories? Issues?

Having worked for one of the RV rental companies as well as truck rentals, be aware of the following: Charge a big cleaning deposit, and be prepared for people to return units filthy to a degree you never thought possible. Think crime scene. There will be damage, develop a relationship with a body shop / RV repair shop or develop some skills. Be prepared to "write off" these vehicles after 1-5 seasons, if you keep them rented out the wear accelerates tremendously. Be prepared to go get one from time to time. Renters get sick / injured / have family fights and may abandon a vehicle. As been mentioned, insurance is very critical & develop a thick skin.

RE: Water pressure regulator

Several parks we have stayed at tell you right away- you better have a pressure regulator. As been said, the non gauge models (cheap ones) tend to restrict flow, that's why I went with an adjustable one with the gauge. Flows much better. I have had the same one for 2 years and it hasn't been stolen yet.

RE: Comical EV article

While I am not anti EV, people (greenies & govt.) need to understand they are not for everyone and work in every situation. I read a similar story where the writer traveled from New Orleans to Chicago. They spent more time charging than they did sleeping.

RE: Want a new truck?

Stopped in the local friendly Ford dealer this morning, they had a 22 F 250 loaded up XLT CC, 6 1/2' bed,7.3 gas up on the ramps near the highway. Could of drove it home for $8K over sticker lol. The sales manager told me Ford has stopped building Super Dutys, if you order today the earliest one can expect it is May 2023......maybe, and said expect msrp to go up across the board $4K by then. They had a shiny silver F-150 lightning waiting to be delivered, it went for $25K above sticker. They just furloughed 6 sales people. People are out of their minds. Wow sign me up, "only" $8K? The local Ford dealer is asking $ 10K, over MSRP, with one truck $15K over. I have a real issue with these dealers gouging people, as some buyers don't have a choice, perhaps their existing vehicle was totaled or stolen. But then if some idiot wants to be the first to have a new Lighting and is willing to pay than much, it makes it easier for me to buy less than MSRP.

RE: Traveling via B&B/hotel vs RV

We recently had to attend an event where we had to stay in a hotel. While the room was nice, we found having to eat at a restaurant to be expensive and a hassle. I found unhooking and setting up was less work than schlepping baggage up to and down from the room. As far as cost, food would be a big cost savings for us since we rarely eat out when we have our RV. Higher lodging cost is offset by additional fuel cost. Biggest issue was we also missed our own bed, pillows and bath. While I understand RV travel brings its own challenges for us I don't see a move to hotel /B&B for us.

RE: Auxiliary Tank Combo

I also went with the RDS, mainly because I wanted a low profile tool box - fuel tank to fit under my tonneau cover. Holds about 40 Ga.

RE: Goodbye China Bombs, Hello Made In The USA

I have had nothing but bad experiences with Chinese tires. The one "failure" I had since I switched to Goodyears was due to a valve stem popping out. Lesson learned, I replaced all valve stems with metal screw in type. Zero issues since then.

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

I think most of the younger set have moved to FB because they are there anyway. Also as been mentioned the lack of detail and quick answers suit their short attention spans. Even if the answer is wrong or more info follows. One of many reasons I find FB a waste of time as you can't actually "follow" a thread to see what the final outcome was.

RE: Trailer Brakes Disconnected message

This is a combination problem. Both the truck being overly sensitive and the trailer being wired poorly. As been mentioned, the early controllers were overly sensitive. Even now they are not very tolerant of the lousy wiring the RV industry use. Specifically those scotch lock connectors and tiny gauge wiring. And let's not forget the known issue of the wiring wearing thru the insulation inside the axles creating all sorts of intermittent faults. Once all the poor wiring is corrected, then you can start looking at the truck.

RE: HELP: Fridge issues and trip tmw!

It does take at least a day to properly diagnose a refrigerator. As previously mentioned one places a cup of water in the refrigerator while the cooling unit is run wide open on AC. After 24 hours you check the temp of the water. If the cooling unit is operating the water will be darn near or frozen depending on ambient temps. Otherwise you are just throwing parts at it.

RE: This the season

Haven't been out this year, but last year got me to wondering who makes all these barrels and how much has been spent on them? Miles and miles of them, and no workers to be seen.

RE: Renting out your RV

Having been in the RV rental business, if you want to see your rig trashed, destroyed, damaged in ways you never thought of and filthy beyond belief, then rent it out.

RE: OEM vs Aftermarket - Chinese JUNK Comparison

Since I don't pay my insurance premiums with foreign or counterfeit currency, when the DW bent her car, I made it crystal clear to both the body shop and insurance adjuster that no non OEM or used parts were to be used. Dealing with an accident is bad enough, but having to worry about poor quality parts is just not right. Read your policy. I did, that's why no used or aftermarket parts were used.

RE: RV'ing couple missing

Here in NV lots of dirt roads have designations as highways or County road. Some of these roads are passable in passenger cars, most are rough in a 4X4. Unfortunately the GPS / "maps" people are not aware of this, so they treat them are passable roads. Several years ago an elderly couple traveling from Idaho during the winter followed their GPS, got stuck with the same results as this unfortunate couple. In short, if you haven't traveled much out West, please do not venture off a paved road based on your GPS or other "map" program. Chances are whoever created the route has never been out here and is unaware of the dangers.

RE: Towing a 40’ weekend warrior 4005 flt.

As been said, Weekend Warriors are heavy (I speak from experience here), so if you can deal with it, go for the dually, but SRW will probably work.
