RE: Worst RV Brand List

what is really good. they said Coachman is better than Forest River. what they didn't say is that coachman is made by Forest River. Coachmen is a separate division of Forest River Inc., as are Palomino, Dynamax and PrimeTime. that's like saying Keystone is made by Thor Industries or Grand Design is made by Winnebago.

RE: The buy local fallacy

Does it really matter which RV dealer has your unit for 3 months to replace whatever widget broke? Does it really matter when the brand and model you want only has one dealer within 400 miles according to their dealer locator and they closed 3 years ago? The problem is the manufacturer, not the dealer. They may as well be insurance companies the way they try to sidestep paying for anything and then cheating the repair shop if they are found at fault. We bought our first new TT from a dealer 2000 miles away. The manufacturer Forest River, found us 3 local dealers willing to do the warranty work. One didn't even sell any Forest River products. We also could have used independent RV shops or mobile RV tech. We just had to get pre-approval from FR and be willing to be reimbursed. So, for me, buying local just for service, is not a factor, unless the price is good.

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

Just curious if you children are trying to get this thread shut down. This looks something you'd see on a 13 year old's Facebook page. Yep!

RE: Can my truck tow this?

Can you tow it? Yes.... Should you tow it? That is where the arguing comes in... A lot of perspectives come from those who are very experienced towers. Yet they'll advise a newbie, "Just get out and tow it!". Towing advice should take into account, the person's towing experience. If they are new, being cautious is warranted. If they're an old hand at towing, then less cautiousness is needed.

RE: Have our trucks got too much power yet?

A plug in hybrid would work well as a tow vehicle, but the weight, cost and complexity makes it hard to recover any savings Nobody ever promised any "savings" at least not any monetary ones. You're supposed to spend as much as you can, "sacrifice" in the name of the planet, so you can show off how good of a person you are to everyone else. "See? I drive a HYBRID! It cost me a LOT of money, but I'm SAVING the planet, so it's worth it! Pat me on the back! Please?" That's why the Prius nickname is the "Pious", because that's how their owners act.:W

RE: Stabil or Seafoam for long term gas can storage?

Thanks, ford truck guy. I gotta say that there has been a notable uptick in hostile commentary within the last year or so -- very puzzling. Not sure what, if anything, can be done about it. This forum, or group of forums, is so valuable. You'd think that those of us who benefit from the advice (and who occasionally offer our own thoughts) would all want to promote usage, rather than discouraging questions and comments. This change in the Forum, has been discussed in numerous threads. I think it's been getting worse, for at least 2 years. Numerous long time members have left because of the uptick in contentious posts.

RE: More Genny wars

You can get the 3200w Firman inverter generator at Costco, for $100 cheaper.

RE: Adding air bags: can that increase payload capacity?

Does adding airbags to a pickup truck tow vehicle increase the payload capacity of the truck? NO. they just help with leveling the rear and maybe ride quality.

RE: Honda 2000I versus Cpe 2000 inverter

I wonder how the new smaller size Champion 2000 inverter compares size and weight wise? It's lighter and just saw a Tractor Supply Black Friday ad, where they have it on sale for $379.

RE: New RV TV show 11/17/19

RE: Do you need a special license to drive an RV?

I was searching in the forums related to a topic regarding the special license required to drive an RV. Unfortunately, nothing shows up. So, I've decided to create a topic about it. If you’re looking at an especially large RV, it is important to note that there are a few states that will require a special license. Read more. In case you don't know, motorhomes/5th wheels/travel trailers/popups/truck campers are all considered RVs.

RE: what kind of batteries do i have?

Huh. Turns out i have 6v batteries. What are the implications of that vs 12v? You're better equipped for dry camping or boondocking.

RE: Anyone gone on a Cruise?

i'm not a cruise person. the DW is currently on Caribbean cruise with family. i refused to go. nothing about cruises interests me. stuck on a ship for days, only to be allowed to be on land for a few hours. i love being on and in the ocean but not kept away from it. i also like being immersed in the local culture, which cruising doesn't allow enough time to do. and the things i would want to do for fun, are not included, like scuba diving.

RE: full length bunk end cover

Bunk end covers were never made to keep out noise. Best advice is to run a fan nearby. Or for us it is an electric dehumidifier when not dry camping. x2! the only way to cut down on outside noise, with a hybrid, is to move to the Dark Side. Even then, you still may hear noise.

RE: Where is the valve to drain freshwater tank

Owner's Manuals are really interesting. There is virtually NO owners manual that would have the location. Nearly all RV owners manuals are generic, with no model-specific information.

RE: F150 HD Payload and Max Trailer - How to spot them?

good luck finding a used HDPP F150. those that own one, hang on to them. i spent 2 years looking for one. had to settle on a 2014 SCREW Ecoboost with Max Tow package. payload capacity of 1828lbs. but it was in the color i wanted.
