RE: Better ride when not towing?

Not to hijack the OP's thread, but in the same line of thinking - should I adjust my tires on my SRW truck when not towing? 80PSi rides like a dream with the FW hooked up but bounces around quite a bit when empty.

RE: Better ride when not towing?

Are you 12? What does this question relate to? MTBOB joined yesterday. I’ve read two of his posts and each one seems to be demeaning to the OP. A new member with this attitude?? Not good!!! A member of several years, with bad attitude, rude, etc, okay!! Just to name a few....... Oh never mind!;) Guessing an old member that got booted off and came back under a different ID.

RE: New post on bike carriers

Was never a fan of racks that attach to the bike's top tube and hang. They bang into one another and wear the paint and cables. They allow the bikes to swing and puts the weight high on the rack which exacerbates a bouncing effect, especially with more than 2 bikes. Heininger is a brand I have never heard of. I would stick to trusted brands like Thule, Yakima, Swagman etc with a tire mounted design and a threaded pin to mitigate play in the receiver. You will spend more money, but you get what you pay for. Here is an example of the rack I have. Had it for almost 10 years and never an issue. Swagman XC

RE: Buying RV from a far away dealer

Any RV we've ever owned I looked for the best deal and if it was worth it, travelled to get it. Often this was far away from our home. NEVER had an issue getting warranty work from my local dealer. This is my experience living in different states with different dealers. Communication with the dealer and the manufacturer is key. But never had a dealer turn down paid warranty work just because I didn't buy it there. That would be cutting off their nose to spite their face. People move, people travel etc. This isn't a problem. Not sure why some folks continue to say that it is. Maybe because it is. At Camping World near me they will do your warranty work if you did not buy from them. It might take them 3 months to get to it, another month or more to get the approval, and another or two to actually do the work. The entire time your rig will sit on their storage lot a mile down the road. I don't buy my RV's from CW and I also never had this problem. Ok, it doesn't happen at all since it has not happened to you. Got it. Perhaps all the manufacturers should eliminate this type of verbiage from their brochures based on your experiences. "your ownership experience is of paramount importance to us. Timely and efficient service, as well as maintenance of your product is a key factor to a positive ownership experience, while enhancing your lifestyle. The Dealer plays a significant role in your ownership experience and a Dealer located thousands of miles from your residence or the primary use location of your product will be hard pressed to provide you with the service you deserve. Below are a few things to seriously consider when making your purchase and choosing a Dealer: Dealers in our Industry are not franchised like automotive dealers and therefore not obligated to work on your product when it is not purchased from them. Our Dealers are independently owned and operated businesses. Service and scheduling is at their discretion and priority is commonly provided to customers that purchased from their dealership. Pre-Delivery Inspections and the customer’s product orientation educating them on their new purchase are often more thorough and convenient for both the customer and dealer when performed by your local dealer. Proximity to your dealership determines the ease of follow up on questions that may arise.Your first uses may result in some needed adjustments and tweaks. Often referred to as “shake down,” these minor adjustments are much more easily addressed by your local (and selling) dealer. Scheduling timely warranty repairs and adjustments through your local dealership provides far greater flexibility and convenience to you the customer!Purchasing locally allows you to establish longstanding personal relationships with your dealer, enhancing your overall experience and adding value in future transactions from product to product. Local dealers are more readily available to assist their loyal customers with product questions, user tips, and are more knowledgeable regarding uses and regulations within the dealer’s region.Your dealer’s knowledge of how your product is serviced and maintained can help to enhance its value when you make a trade. Buying locally provides you a greater opportunity to develop relations not only with the dealer principal and managers, but also those team members at the dealership who actually service your product. Buying locally helps you support local businesses who in turn support your community by providing jobs and aiding the local economy." In one post you write this: "There is no shortage of stories around about local dealers who suck, even when you've purchased from them. " And in another post you drone on and on about advocating using your local dealer. Well, which is it?

RE: DirecTV Spinoff Announcement

Cut the cord a few years ago. Had DTV, then cable etc. Grew tired of paying a lot of money for them to make decisions on what 200 channels I got. I watched about 3 of them. So now I get to choose what I want to watch and don't pay for the hundreds of channels I don't.

RE: Running a generator to exercise it when there's shore power?

I'd rather exercise my genny monthly and know it's going to work than find out I have a problem when I really need it. All this doom and gloom about problems it causes by those of us that exercise them monthly is gibberish. It doesn't take a ton of common sense to know that running any mechanical engine frequently is far better than not running it for long periods of time and there is far more evidence behind that than the few who claim running it too frequently causes more problems than it solves. Luckily there are very few people who fall into this category who offer such advice. That is not to say that a genny can't be stored for long periods if certain things are done, like draining it etc. But I'd much rather have a genny that's periodically exercised than one that sits dormant. That's usually the advice that engineers will offer and they don't all have a hidden agenda.

RE: What are good outdoor camping lights?

What kind of lights? Utility lights, shop lights, accent lights, changing color LED's, aesthetic lights, low light, flashlight... If you stated your purpose it would be easier to narrow it down.

RE: Fuel mileage

While I understand that MPG was never impressive on most trucks, it certainly wasn't on my old Ford, the new 6.7 with the 10 spd tranny is pretty impressive. Just about doubles the mileage on previous versions. Double, sure, that's gonna happen. I said just about, try not to take it too literally. Feel free to PM me if you want to discuss it.

RE: Fuel mileage

about 14-16 mpg with the FW in tow WooooWeee I gotta get me one of those tow trucks. That is what I get running empty at best. :B If you are quoting me Dave, I suggest you re-read what I wrote...Not you I don't think, there was a poster on the first or second page that was claiming 14-16 mpg pulling his 18,000 lb. fifth wheel. That raised a few eyebrows, and much disbelief. :) You referring to me? If so my FW is nowhere near 18k. Not sure where that came from. It's slightly over 11k. While I understand that MPG was never impressive on most trucks, it certainly wasn't on my old Ford, the new 6.7 with the 10 spd tranny is pretty impressive. Just about doubles the mileage on previous versions. I don't fret over MPG, never have, but that's what the computer tells me. I don't calculate it myself, and as another poster pointed out, I hadn't reset it so some of these figures could be skewed with non towing MPG. So there is that. You guys sure do like to get your knickers all in a twist when someone has better MPG than the status quo. New trucks are more powerful and much more efficient. You should try driving one and educate yourself. Until you truly know what you are talking about it's all just drivel.

RE: CG in Brooksville Fl

Thanks for all he help so far. There must be like 20 CG's around the area but almost none of them seem like real CG's - if that makes any sense. Is this a FL thing?

We have family in Brooksville so we don't want to be too far away. And yes we have a child.

Take a look at this one very nice park Bell Parc RV Resort Looked at that one. It's a 55+ park. That won't work for us.

RE: CG in Brooksville Fl

Try Withlacoochee State Forest-Croom Tract's Silver Lake Campground located about 20 minutes (13-14 miles) east of Brooksville (only 5 minutes from I-75). Thanks, I should have mentioned we will be there over a week and need full hookups.

CG in Brooksville Fl

Looking for a CG in Brooksville FL area. Usually I don't have issues finding CG's in various places but it seems like the first 10 I check in this area are permanent or over 55. I am just looking for a regular CG. Suggestions? Thanks

RE: Reservation blues - UPDATED

If I were to summarize, you are upset because someone reserved your site when you chose not to? How is someone on line supposed to know not to book an open site because you are there and wanted to keep it? If you wanted to stay there why didn't you just book it yourself? Maybe I am missing something. Yeah, I think your missing something. I believe he said reservations could only be made 3 days out. He found his site open, took it for two days, tried to make the reservation for day 3 through 12 (remember, reservations 3 days out), and someone had already reserved it. I don't think he's "upset" or mad. He's got the reservation for day 4 through whatever, and hoping he can convince the person who has it for one day to take another spot. If I were that person, and there were open spots that I could fit into near it, I'd switch no problem. Different story if that was the only site open I could fit in. And I wouldn't accept your money Oldman.. I'd just consider it an act of kindness that is far to rare in today's society unfortunately. Mike Yes that does make sense. Thanks. I agree, I have no problem switching with another camper. Have done so on a few occasions.

RE: 2020 F-250

I looked into it and decided it wasn't worth it. My hitch comes out easy enough and the rails don't add much to the floor of the bed to make it worth my while. Adding the puck system after the truck is built requires pulling the entire bed off, drilling through the bed, mounting the pucks on the frame rails and putting the bed back on. Would have loved to have it from the factory, but too much of a hassle to do it aftermarket for me and not enough benefit.

RE: Humble Apology

I've noticed other strange things going on in my mind which I know can be caused by stroke. For example, I get over emotional if I'm watching a movie and see a touching scene, more so than the average person would feel. It's kind of embarrassing but I'm by myself so no one else sees me. Yes, the after affects of a stroke can be challenging, but it's good to have survived and to be alive. Thank you, everyone, for your kind thoughts. Society has taught us to be ashamed of our emotions and to what end? No one should ever be ashamed of empathy and compassion. Those that ridicule people showing emotions are the ones with the real problem.
