anyone seen Jim . . AKA - NC Hauler

I was just deleting some old messages and ran across Jim... Realized it's been a long time since I heard from him... the last I heard, he had a stroke back in 2017, and his new RV was flooded, then he got new DRV.... Just curious if he is still ok or not . .

RE: What does having an appointment mean?

I can tell you what it mans to me,, When I buy a camper, I meet with the service manager when taking delivery. I tell them my expectations which are - * I will make an appointment for a Monday.... * I will drop the trailer off the Saturday before... * They will have 40 hours to work on it..... * I will be back the following Saturday to pick it up.. * If something is broke, I have them order the part BEFORE the trailer is dropped off, a lot of waiting is due to the factory missing parts deliveries, or dealers NOT ordering properly. All of my dealers have been 1-1/2 hrs away or farther that is why I do the Saturday drop and pick. I email on Tuesday to get a progress report, if no answer, I call. This has worked for me since I have been buying RV's...It also helps to bring donuts and coffee in on the morning you drop and pick it up.... they go a long way..... NOW.... if the repair is HUGE, all bets are off, but that has not happened to me...

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

We got our first case of the Coronavirus in our county this week....a person from NY brought it to us. What is that supposed to mean? A person from NY? Have some kind of problem with NY? People are carrying this thing worldwide. That is why it is called an infectious pandemic,literally (infect/spread) (pan) world wide (demic) pertaining to a population. So once again what is your statement meant to convey? the statement was meant to convey that ALL New Yorkers ( because of the situation) is supposed to shelter in place and NOT LEAVE THE AREA.. IF THEY DO, SELF QUARANTINE FOR 14 DAYS..HECK... some states will nt allow folks in if they re coming from NY

RE: ? L E D taillights

I changed out the rectangular BARGMAN OE units for exact same but LED on a 02 AVION, zero issues towing with 98 RAM. Amazing part people actually could see when I wanted over and would move! On my 08 KZ, I replaced the markers with - Bargman LED Upgrade Kit

RE: New DISH equipment to sell, husband died

Thanks for the suggestions. With the virus situation in the country, I think I should wait to do this so I don't have to meet with someone who might be ill and not know it yet. Also need to sell truck and RV but I think I might get more later when things settle down. Please Check you private messages....

RE: virus

Has anyone mentioned dollar bills? Does the virus live on money? Many people have touched the money in my wallet. here is a quote from the article listed above "The belief is that these viruses can stay on surfaces in their fully active states for at least 10 days. That includes cash and all kinds of other surfaces that people normally touch," Dr. Sanjay Maggirwar, chair of the George Washington University School of Medicine's department of microbiology, immunology and tropical medicine, told CBS MoneyWatch. "So certainly with the coronavirus, cash handling is a concern."

RE: Bearings

quick search - Where are MOOG parts manufactured? Moog is not the part manufacturer, but rather a parts distributor. They probably have 2 lines with one made in Japan, and the other line made in Mexico/China. The Japan made parts by Moog are actually the 5 star brand. The Mexico made parts are just unbranded.

RE: 20 year loan for RV?

I get it... I understand why people feel the need to extend themselves out that far for a luxury ... I personally would never do it... my longest car loan was 48 months , that is IF I finance it ... My largest loan. other than a mortgage was when I purchased my last Redwood. that was 60 month... We paid against the principle each month and paid it off in 36 months.... 20 year loans are scary... Think before you leap

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

If, this is true about jail folks for driving through a state under "stay at home orders" is true, it's another great example of govt silliness. Those same states governments are calling for releasing felons because jails and prisons are too dangerous due to the virus, so the cure is to put more people in there. Being locked up for driving on the highway is UNTRUE... FAKE NEWS.. the prisoners however - - article another - article AND they think the prisoners will listen to the MANDATORY self quarantine for 14 days once being released . . :h The funny thing in that they think all who are released will be rounded back up and put back in at the end of this... :S

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

NY is emptying the prisons to make room for the people violating the stay at home rules. I'd stay at home and not chance it. Can you imagine the storage fees for your RV while you're in the pokey? Here is what is planned - - I DO DISAGREE with what they are doing.... in NJ - "New Jersey will release as many as 1,000 people from its jails in what is believed to be the nation’s broadest effort to address the risks of the highly contagious coronavirus spreading among the incarcerated." "The order applies to inmates jailed for probation violations as well as to those convicted in municipal courts or sentenced for low-level crimes in Superior Court. The release of inmates will begin Tuesday morning." They then went on to say that once the virus is gone, those inmates would then be placed back into prison... FUNNY , RIGHT ! ! ! Do they really think they will find them ??

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

as of now... DE, SE PA, ( Philly and lemon its surrounding areas) NJ, NY are all " shelter in place" . . I am sure you can travel through, as the highways are still open. BUT the question is, will anything be open once yi get there.. The part of NJ your speaking of has been hit real hard . . .

RE: virus

Ford Truck Guy, nice digs! Right now I am wishing we still had one. I've got my son in his study and my husband in the basement. Our house is open concept so my husband can't use the other study. Both have loud, commanding voices. I'm used to being in the house by myself. It's been nice seeing them at lunch and having them walk with me in the afternoon if they can but I don't get much peace and quiet as they keep be-bopping into the family room to say hello. Even the dogs are exhausted because their day-long naps are being interrupted! Yup, wish we still had a mh so I'D have some place to hide! yup.. went into the house today for lunch... the dogs were wrestling.... barking... DW was painting the kitchen... I made a sandwich and had to take it back to the RV for that very important call that I couldn't miss :B. It's nice having it kept in the driveway at all times with 50amp service..

RE: virus

I am taking advantage of the situation and staying clear of everyone. Since I have an immune disorder, I need to take precautions.. Not a bad place to work, I am hunkered down in my RV in my driveway working from home... https://i.imgur.com/Bcmjf5hl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ONxnuldl.jpg

RE: Leaking antenna fix

There are a lot of cases that the O-rings on the antenna shaft break down and allow water past... IF you have the old style Winegard crank style, call them and ask.... They are very good to work with..
