RE: Class-C'ers Unsecured EZ-Up Meets Side of Nice Prevost

Curious here. Did you see ay damage to the coach or just the EZ up against it? It looked like it was scratched in a # of places.

RE: Class-C'ers Unsecured EZ-Up Meets Side of Nice Prevost

I am sure there was no intent. Just a careless accident Did you cry because it was a Prevost, or because a low life class C had the unmitigated gall to be close to the kings ride. I am sure that the Prevost owner has insurance and although a pain, will not cause him financial distress. Why does the Brand and type make a difference, this is akin to naming the race of a person when race has nothing to do with the story! Yes I cried because it was the nicest coach (at least custom paint wise) I'd ever seen. I cried because I can appreciate fine things in this world, wether they're owned by people wealthier than me or not is irrelevant, they're still fine things. I put myself in that person's shoes thinking that if I'd worked my @ ss off to get a dream coach & then to have it needlessly damaged because of someone else's negligence, I'd be pissed. I thought about the stress with having to deal with someone I didn't know trying to get reimbursed, about having to spend my valuable time/effort rectifying damage done to my property. I surely didn't think that because the person owning the Prevost had money then it was no big deal to have his stuff damaged by others. ETA: I own a Class C smaller than the one I referenced in my post so insinuating that I'm someone sitting on a hill looking down on peons that can only afford a Class C is not applicable here. Nice try with the class warfare approach though.

RE: Class-C'ers Unsecured EZ-Up Meets Side of Nice Prevost

Who says the C pictured owned the EZ up? It could have come from anywhere. It was their stuff, I walked by it all set up a 1/2 dozen times over 2 days before it ended up in the side of someone else's very expensive coach.

RE: Ford's 7.3L gas engine

I'm very interested in this subject matter myself.

RE: Steering stabilizer

Front end alignment by a qualified shop is a must. When I bought my rig (used) it was all over the road & I thought it needed front shocks. After a trip to the alignment place it was night & day better in every aspect. 1 Side was out of spec enough that I had them put in an aftermarket caster/camber sleeve that allowed them to put that side well back within specs. Apparently Ford doesn't send them off the line with adjustable parts in that area of the suspension. I was charged $60 for that part & the install.... money well spent.

Class-C'ers Unsecured EZ-Up Meets Side of Nice Prevost

Results of Unsecured EZup If you're new to RVing and set up stuff like EZ-ups and such around others, PLEASE make sure you have that stuff mega tied to the earth before you leave it unattended (or better yet take everything down while gone). I cried for the Prevost owner & I don't even know who the owner is.

RE: Are RV sewer hose supports necessary?

In 20 years I can probably count on 1 hand the times I've had to or would've been nice to use one if I'd had one with me. We carry a standard camco (or whatever brand it is) expandable one with us nowadays but it rarely gets pulled out of the storage compartment.

RE: RV Sales Push

The used market is going to be getting on the road to being truly epic starting at the end of this summer & running thru the next couple of years....especially for those if ok with a Class C or even a Gasser A. Conversely, the new manufacture industry is going to be poised for big slump again when this hits. The timing of all this is shaping up to be great for us. Our current coach will be hitting the 10yr old mark in 5 years, time for a new-to-us one at some point during that chunk of time.

RE: Wall Coverings

If it matters to you , if you don't want to be possibly be denied a warranty claim, I would wait till the warranty is over before you start making alterations to anything . Give yourself some time to make sure this particular rv is a sound build. Not trying to be a smart butt, but do you really think the dealer you'd just bought a coach from or an RV manufacturer for that matter would deny a warranty claim on any part of a rig because someone decided to paint or apply wallpaper over the factory stuff?

RE: Power boost for Ford 450 V10

Run it stock or buy a different rig with a more powerful engine. You will get there just fine in a stock V-10. Start f’ing around with things in the engine / transmission departments & the risk/reward & cost /benefit is nowhere near where it makes sense (in my book). I tow a car behind ours all over the mountainous west & don’t feel there’s anything lacking or wrong. I try not to run it 4K rpm for long periods but it will do it. I find that keeping it in the 3k-ish range is more than adequate speed wise, while being pretty easy on the girl. Don’t try & fix something that isn’t broke.

RE: How Often Do you Get Skunked on FCFS Camp Spots?

Hopefully some day I'll be able to retire & have the luxury a lot of you all have which is to arrive at places during the week!

RE: How Often Do you Get Skunked on FCFS Camp Spots?

Skunked?? Get to a place & there's no available spots.

How Often Do you Get Skunked on FCFS Camp Spots?

Hate the fact there are so many First-Come/First-Serve camping spots at the National Parks & Forest Service campgrounds. I really prefer camping in National Parks & Forest Service campgrounds (especially if wanting forest/mountain camping) but the lack of reserveable spots is a major impediment to doing so for us. We to go RVing for relaxation purposes, therefore heading out for a weekend trip without having reservations in hand is anti-relaxing / stressful. Seeing a lot of YouTube reviewers saying they rarely get skunked when it comes to being able to find a FCFS site in any given campground. That seems a little rosy-er than what I would think would be the case. What's you guys' experience with this stuff nowadays?

RE: Chalky Front Cap This stuff in the much smaller bottle will hook you up for ridding the chalk. You don’t even need a buffer but you can use one if you want. I’ve used it both ways. Also 3m makes some stuff in both blue & green labels that’s fantastic as well. Note: Use a good quality ‘sealant’ after any of the above products or else you’ll be doing it again in short order (especially if it’s hot weather time). I like to use Turtle Wax Liquid Ice as a sealant. Been using it for years on my gelcoat boats, trailers, & motor home.

RE: Camping with my dog

Despite the rules, I don't think I've been to a camp ground yet where I have not seen unattended dogs left chained or crated at campsites. Including myself. As a solo traveler, my dog is unattended when I leave to use the public shower, that's how it is and I'm not leaving my dog home at a kennel so I can take a shower without annoying some busy-body. MYOB folks, get over yourselves and enjoy your camping time instead of worrying about ruining someone elses Dog annoys you? Your idling diesel annoys me no way you need 30+ minutes to warm up or cool down, get that engine serviced if it takes that long. Maybe it's screaming kids, alcohol fueled all-night "good times" around the fire at maximum volume, or or or... This! If there's anything worse than someone breaking a rule (especially if in this case the pet(s) are not causing a noise problem) it's a Karen.

RE: Military Chapter/Group within Good Sam?

Update: Got a reply from someone at national GS. They denied knowing about any such chapter/club etc at their level.

RE: Military Chapter/Group within Good Sam?

Seems to me active duty would have little use for a specific group/chapter. “someone affiliated with one of my state's local chapters” ? I was told it was an 'at large' type deal when I was inquiring about a local NV GS Chapter. Apparently the person that got back to me & told me this stuff is an officer of some sort in one of the Nevada Good Sam clubs.

RE: Military Chapter/Group within Good Sam?

Was emailing back/forth with someone affiliated with one of my state's local chapters about their club & they mentioned it to me.

Military Chapter/Group within Good Sam?

I heard that Good Sam has some sort of at large chapter/group (might be fairly new, might not?) for military members to be a part of. True / Not True?
