RE: Where did the Non weekend RVers go?

Not grumpy old man syndrome at all. Been camping for a long time and like the rest of the world I have noticed the respect level for anybody and anything has gone way down. Given that, I still do not use my outside speakers or start a fire under the window of the next campers slideout or dump my tanks while the neighbor is eating at his table ten feet away. These and many other details keep most people happy at the campsite. Sadly, looking around at other campers there are fewer smiles and more scowls.

RE: Where did the Non weekend RVers go?

I read and participate in a few forums and have noticed the same thinning of posts. We have also stopped using some of the great campgrounds that are within a few hours of us due to the inconsiderate actions of the current batch of newbies. The kids don't bother us, but the 20 and 30 somethings that think the world needs to know them can drive this non drinker to drink. Why do our dogs need to know each other? Why do we need to know each other? We sure miss the days of meeting your neighboring camper when it seemed convenient to both of you. Walking through a campground used to be a joy with all the different ways folks set up their site. Now walking the dogs is a major chore due to having to avoid the #$&*@ running over to pet dogs they do not know and don't ask about first. Seeing all the cameras, security lights and high tech locks on their minimalist campers makes me wonder if the place is less safe because of them. We have taken to using only motor coach campgrounds as we have had good luck avoiding the idiots there. Maybe in a couple of years things will return to normal when the folks with more money than brains latch onto something else to do like cliff jumping.

RE: Towing capacity

What is the gross weight rating of the trailer? Quoting dry weight is unrealistic as even as the unit hits the dealer lot it will not weigh that. There is no use having a trailer if you are never going to have anything in it when you travel as that dry weight is without batteries, propane or any options the factory installed.

RE: Odd CG map

Doing the best they can. Sad.

RE: Tybee Island Fine Me Beach

Try visiting Ocean Beach on Fire Island in New York. Alternate name is "The Land of No". Walking with an ice cream cone is a $50 fine. No adult beverages can be consumed in public. Not an issue until you realize that the closed cabin of your boat is considered a public area. It gets lots worse than Tybee Island and still does nothing to keep the area clean. I would visit Tybee again but not Ocean Beach.

You get that mail because the mail program has no clue how old your unit is. If you get a newer unit and get the extended service plan for it you will still get those mailings. I keep all of the mailings and use them for starting campfires. I even add in the ones asking if I want to renew my annual membership. They can't even figure that I have a lifetime membership.

RE: Recent "improvements" to the web site.

Fixed! Two reboots on the ipad and clearing the cache did it. Normal access has returned.

RE: Recent "improvements" to the web site.

Did all of that. No joy. We can hope that one day Marcus will decide that programmers actually need to know what they are doing.

RE: Recent "improvements" to the web site.

Another wonderful attempt to fix something that was not broken. Proof that anybody can do programming. Also proof that only a few can program well.

Recent "improvements" to the web site.

Just tried to use the trip planner and it seems that it has been cancelled. No matter where I click on trip planner it just brings me to a page for joining Good Sam. Being a life member means I do not need that page but I do need the trip planner. Where is that function hidden now?

RE: How to change GSC badge to read LIFE MEMBER?

Do you have two numbers? If you have one number for your annual membership and another for your life member account it will probably list member until the annual account expires. Then it will swap over to life member. It has been many years but that is how it worked for me.

RE: Smaller Trailer - King Bed?

We went from a MiniLite to a Cougar 22RBS and it seems to be a perfect unit for a couple. Get the recliners!

RE: awning rolling up, arms and supports not aligned

The fabric would not be crooked as it is winding up and pulling the roller to one side.

RE: awning rolling up, arms and supports not aligned

With awning open, push up on roller tube to relieve pressure and slide awning along roller tube to align. Not at the top since it is screwed into place. Yes this! On our MiniLite this was what was causing the same problem you have. Not wanting to put a screw through the awning I fished around a big box store and found plastic rod that just fit in the slot the awning goes in, cut it so it was hitting the awning and even with the end of the slot and ran a short screw into the piece near each end. Problem solved!

RE: Route advice

The best way in is either by the Bridgeport-Port Jefferson ferry or the New London-Orient Point ferry. Leaving and heading south is not pretty no matter how you go. My favorite before I moved to a civilized area was 495 (Long Island Expressway) to he Throgs Neck Bridge to the Cross Bronx Expressway to the New Jersey Turnpike southbound and then on to your destination. Do not take the New London ferry on a weekend as you will be in winery traffic for many miles when heading west. I took the above route south many times with a travel trailer and it is not pleasant but it is the least unpleasant of all the choices.

RE: Moki Dugway

The washout is on 95, not the dugway. The washout prevents using 95 as a bypass around the dugway.

Moki Dugway

Hi all: has anybody towed a trailer on the Moki Dugway going southbound? That would be the downhill run. Thanks in advance.

RE: Tow Dolly Question

Better visibility is never a bad thing! We try to have running lights on even during the day. Seems that big box is close to invisible unless it has lights on.

RE: Extension cord shrinkage

Lay the cord out in the warm sun a few hours. Then start at the RV and pull the cover toward the plug along the length of the wire. I put some JB Weld in the moulded end as I pulled the cover toward the plug and it has now held for many years. No issues again. This is the best bet! I would suggest unhooking the cable from the trailer if it can be done as it will also let you make the best of the job by holding the wires as you pull the jacket thus giving you more jacket to pull instead of putting tension on the connections. If done this way JB may not even be needed but could be used for insurance. When you are done, put a cable clamp around where the jacket ends on the trailer end to keep it from migrating. Happy Camping!

RE: Tire pressure monitor showing 10 tires at once

Looking at it once and reading the pressures of ten tires will take your eyes off of the road for so long you will be as hazardous as a texter. As is stated above, the tpms is there to alert you to something wrong so that you can drive without looking at it. Do not use it to visually confirm that everything is just fine. We don't need any more distracted drivers on the roads.
