RE: Roadside Assistance

We had Good Sam towing for years. They towed us from Bad lands S.D. to Rapid City about 70 miles with no charge (31' Class A MH). The dealer they towed us to thought they had fixed the problem. Two days later the problem re-occurred near Kalispell, Mt. and they towed us to a camp ground on Sunday evening, then the next day they towed us to a Dealer who fixed the problem. But, when I called for for help that second time they said they would arrange the tow but I would have to pay as it was a pre-existing condition. I pointed out that they had towed us to a dealer who failed to fix the problem. They said I would have to pay but that I could appeal that decision. I did so when I got home an they paid in full! I have been very happy with Good Sam ERS, unfortunately because of age and health we can no longer use the Motor Home so I let let it expire but if we could still travel I would not leave home without it.

RE: Tioga Won't Budge after long neglect. Help, please.

Sounds like you are making progress! My guess is that the 3rd line is for the generator.

RE: RVing in 2022

I would encourage everyone to travel if they possibly can. We have reached the age where health problems prevent us from using the motor home much and I regret not using it more when we were still able. I regret more what I haven't done than what I have!!! Money is something that you can't take with you when your life is over.

RE: Tioga Won't Budge after long neglect. Help, please.

Glad to hear that you finally got the tow! Have you been able to get it going yet? Thanks for keeping us posted on your results!

RE: Tioga Won't Budge after long neglect. Help, please.

It shouldn't be that hard to tow a 24' class C. I have had our 31" class A towed twice. They had a medium sized truck that could lift the front wheels off the ground. They did disconnect the drive shaft which would also disconnect the park brake if it is behind the transmission. The first time they towed us 70 miles, the second was probably about 20. I don't know what the first tow cost as my towing insurance paid for it, the second was around $350 if I remember right. I did get reimbursed for that after I got home. We had Good Sam towing insurance. Good luck and let us know how you come out!

RE: Yellowstone second thoughts.

Thanks to all for the replies. You have convinced me to go ahead as planned. Good for you, Yellowstone is the most amazing park in the U.S. in my opinion! I have been there several times, the first as a kid with my folks and the last time was 2019 with my wife. We drove through from the Northwest gate to the east gate with a 30' motor home. I have always been there in the summer and have never seen a mosquito but some say they have. I wish we could go back but at 77 yrs old I doubt we will ever make it. Have fun and enjoy! Best wishes!

RE: RVing in 2022

I’d sure rather be in my RV than a hotel room….even prior to Covid. I second that, I hate hotels and love to RV!

RE: Rattles

I hate rattles, I used to have my wife drive so I could go back and find them. Now, she can no longer drive our rig so I have to put up with a few of them but still do my best to find them. I keep padding between pots and pans etc and manage to keep most pretty well silenced. This is in a class A but we have had class C's too. I hate rattles!

RE: What to do about fire damage

OP: All due respect, but you opened the insurance can of worms, with the statement regarding towing and the insurance company wasn't happy with the cost. Doesn't matter if they're happy. Insurance is a wager of sorts between the company and policyholder. Your company lost the wager as evidenced by your claim. It's, business nothing personal. Sure, the company will do all they can to control costs, but their responsibility is to facilitate repair of your RV; It's what you're paying for. If that's not happening as it should, in a timely fashion, maybe it's time to buy a 1 hour consultation with an insurance attorney. I agree, the insurance should be taking care of this, if they are not, get a lawyer!

RE: Class A floor mats

I use 2 sided carpet tape on ours. It works pretty good.

RE: Best Toad braking System

I like my ReadyBrake system, used it for several years to tow my Jeep GCL behind my Winnebago Brave with 0 problems.

RE: Road Condition West Bound into Cody, WY on US Hwy 14

The advise above is all very good. I have traveled all 3 routes and 16 would be your best bet. Watch the weather and the road conditions very close!

RE: Where are all of the snowbirds?

A lot of interesting comments! We would love to be snowbirds but unfortunately, my wife's health is preventing us from what used to be our annual trip to the Texas coast. We sure enjoyed it when we could. We only used our motor home once for a few days locally last year. I hope all the snowbirds have a safe and happy winter where ever they are!

Where are all of the snowbirds?

Just wondering why there is no action on this forum thread anymore? There used to be quite a few posts on here. I know there are still snowbirds out there.

RE: Broke down on the road, what's your insurance experience?

We have Good Sam ERS. Motor home broke down at the Badlands, S.D. They towed us 75 miles to Rapid City to a big RV dealer (no charge). They checked it out and replaced a fuse, test drove it charged us $100 and sent us on our way. Two days later in Montana the same thing happened. I called and they said they would send a tow but we would have to pay as it was a pre-existing condition. I complained because they had towed us to a place that did not fix the problem and they said I could appeal but I would have to pay at the time. I appealed when we got home and they paid 100% in full. I am very satisfied! The second time was a Sunday evening and they towed us to a campground and then towed us to a Chevy dealer the next morning.

RE: Plugged in or out

I don't leave it plugged in but do use battery maintainers on it, 1 for coach and 1 for engine battery.

RE: Winnebago quality

I have had 3 older Winnebago products, in my opinion their roofs are excellent quality, never had a roof leak. I can't say that about other brands I have had.
