RE: Aggressive Sales tactics at CW

I posted this for comment on a camper forum and they suggested I share here. Has anyone had issues with Camping World aggressive sales tactics? We were looking at a Fuse in Syracuse over the phone and did some preliminary paperwork and exchanges of info for financing. We called to say we were no longer interested in the unit, our sales rep said ok and thanks for the call. The next day a different sales rep called and read us the riot act and told us we owned the unit and had better pick it up. Would appreciate input. We signed a delivery checklist, but stipulated that it was non-binding in our email and only a preliminary cost estimate. We told the sales rep several times over the phone that our commitment was non-binding as we would not buy a unit over the phone and without seeing it. No money changed hands until we told salesman #2 that we didn't want the unit. Then he charged our card on file for $1000. I'll dispute this with credit card company. But it seems illegal for him to charge our card after we informed them twice we didn't want the unit. Salesman#2 threatened to hand us over to legal in Chicago and charge $4000 for dealer prep. You went to far and even gave them your credit card.. You should just remain a looky lou until your ready to buy..

Dash AC Control Knob Replacements

On my 08 Bounder Ford chassis, one of my dash ac knobs broke and now I have misplaced it, does anyone know where to get new ones, have looked on the internet but few give dimensions and show a pic of the back. Would like the same knob if not will order 3 new ones.. https://i.imgur.com/bJ50XI3l.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/bJ50XI3l.jpg

RE: Switch to houseboat?

I have a small boat and some marinas have charged me $25 a day/night to keep the boat in a slip, so I load boat back onto trailer each day after boating. I am not sure if a marina monthly/weekly charge is much less than some RV parks, just depends where and what lake/river.. I would like to live on a house boat on Puget Sound in NW Washinton, so much to see and do there plus you can boat into Canada..

RE: Satelite Internet

Go Elon and Starlink! I hope he puts all the cable and phone companies out of business. But its gonna be a while. Few years at least I'd say. 2 Years and dish/direct TV go under... :C

RE: Purchased TT (undisclosed salvage title came in the mail)

They told me they bought it from an insurance company. The problem and my worry is that when the title came in the mail, it was orange and states 'flood' under the 'Brand or Legend' section. Thanks, ~Steve Any auto/boat/RV bought from a insurance company means it will have a salvage title, that's just common sense.. You should have done your home work better.. :C

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

Do not get the Roko stick, get the Roko 3 box, the stick does not get all the channels and has a hard time receiving internet, I like the Roko 3 boxes, they work just fine and cost under $100 and No Monthly Fees... With streaming you don't need to record, all programs are always there ready to watch at anytime, that is what makes streaming so much better over satellite.. Smart TV's are OK but the Roku box offers many more channels and many are FREE... https://www.roku.com/I'm interested in this as well, and my recent (bad) experience with xfinity where I renegotiated my service - having to buy more packages to watch the shows I want (Mountain Men) and the fact that every night on my down time, I'm scrolling through the channel guide seeing nothing interesting. It seems that you have to know what you want to watch and then go find it. We have Amazon Prime and NetFlix, and scroll through hundreds of movies, often finding nothing of interest. Sure there is lots of content, but I'm not one to watch the same movie over and over. So I browsed their site and do not see the Roko 3 box. I do have a 4K TV and see that their top of the line box is the ROKU Ultra for 100 bucks. I have the fastest xfinity internet speed and currently have no streaming issues. Other questions are how long do I have to wait for a new movie release to be available? Also, I'm sure I could take it with me camping and get internet via my work phone hot spot. Any other costs involved? Thanks for the info - kind of lit the fire under my butt to cut the cord. Well I have had my Roku boxes for a while back when they called it Roku 3, I now see they have changed there box names overtime, my mistake.. As to new release movies it depends on what channel you want to watch movies, there is so much content that I can not explain, Fandango has a channel on Roku that offers new release movies, I have not signed up on there channel yet, Amazon offers new release almost weekly. Its not just movies that attracts me to streaming TV on Roku its the other hundreds of special channels you can watch, special channels just for boating, hunting, sports, Red Bull channel, documentary channels, news channels, over seas channels, YouTube, etc, etc...

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

I'm trying Roku right now. Problem 1: The picture won't format to my screen properly. That's strange I have never seen that before, have setup many Roku box's over the years and never a issue.. Maybe your doing something wrong, do you have it plugged into the HDMI port and have the TV set on the right port ?

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

Internet is the new better way and cheaper per month than cable/satellite.. Says the man who has better than 5mps internet at $55/mo. How I wish I could dump DTV! Just hold on Space X will soon have its 600 satellites up and you will have all the internet you will need anywhere on the road and at home.. Late 2020 Space X internet should be online and satellite dish TV service will be part of the past like many brick and mortar stores.. :B

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

With streaming you don't need to record, all programs are always there ready to watch at anytime,Can I stream through commercials? Commercials are few with streaming to begin with, some channels have zero and some have a few, over the past 5 years I have been streaming commercials are coming on more but still less than half what cable/satellite offers.. As to speeding up the program to get out of commercials no I can not do that..

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

..buy a Roko box and hook it up with your internet a away you go.I'm going to investigate that.I have a smart TV and am looking at the Hulu app. For around $45 a month I can get pretty much all I need, via wireless. The fly in the ointment for me is recording. I never watch live TV. I also like the 4k thing.. which I think I can only get via xfinity home internet - plus a DVR. But that ain't cheap. There's a lot out there! With streaming you don't need to record, all programs are always there ready to watch at anytime, that is what makes streaming so much better over satellite.. Smart TV's are OK but the Roku box offers many more channels and many are FREE... https://www.roku.com/

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

..buy a Roko box and hook it up with your internet a away you go.I'm going to investigate that. I have blazing internet at the house, just the phone for the RV which I don't think is going to cut it. I have my service and my locals set up just the way I like it and I do not want any of it touched. I had a DTV receiver for the house and RV, without the fuss of having 2 accounts, which has worked just fine for years. Then I made the silly mistake of deactivating the other receiver, which essentially blew it off the map, and I'm not a good enough liar to get it reactivated. Even after being a loyal customer for over 20 years. Gimme a break. Thanks. I'll keep you posted. If you have internet at home than you have access to thousands of channel right now at zero cost and almost no commercials.. Do not get the Roko stick, get the Roko 3 box, the stick does not get all the channels and has a hard time receiving internet, I like the Roko 3 boxes, they work just fine and cost under $100 and No Monthly Fees... THIS IS NOT A HOME TOPIC. It's about how to access these TV options while RVing. Please stop confusing folks by making them believe that the same service they can get at home is available when they are in their RV. This is not your thread Bill, and in 2oldmans post he mentions his fast internet at home and I replied about that.. :R

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

Rumors I'm hearing is that AT&T is trying to transistion everyone to land-line (Wire or fiber) and kill off DTV.. they sure seem to be doing that. That's because they see the satellite TV customers cutting the cord everyday by the thousands.. Internet is the new better way and cheaper per month than cable/satellite.. Like I said before 95 percent of young folks under 30 don't want or pay for cable/satellite TV and millions above 30 are seeing the light and cutting the cord daily.. 20 months and counting.. :B

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

Both DTV and Dish are losing customers. For me for now there is no reasonable alternative while traveling. And perhaps the speculation posts about a DTV and Dish merger will become reality. You can use the cable at RV parks, use your antenna, buy some DVD's and use internet when you can.. Between all 4 there is no need to pay $75 a month for junk channels that you don't want.. Elon is making internet global real soon.. :C

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

Thanks for the call out 2oldman : Streaming TV does not require special boxes and cards and calling people in other countries, you just go to walmart and buy a Roko box and hook it up with your internet a away you go. Also no monthly billing if you don't want to pay for certain channels and when you want to buy certain channels its all done thru the internet with no talking with people and no long term contracts.. Satellite/cable TV is old school... :B

RE: Direct TV turn off date

Will it? At a price that will allow the streaming to run 12+ hours a day for a family of 4 using something like 12 different devices? Cant see why not, my home internet allows that, it will at least give 24/7 streaming on the road in a RV..
