Comments for RV Travel Newsletter Issue 782

  • Great video on Hydraulic jack failure. Every week your news letter gives good advice and great ideas. I’m glad my freind from CA told me about your news letter. Keep up the good work.

  • Tiffin did not email the owner’s of a Tiffin motorhome the owner’s that know about this found out on a web site by owner’s of a Tiffin who are member’s of this site . Will this hurt the sales of Tiffin Motorhome’s?

    • Tony, I don’t think so. My guess is that the company is selling many more coaches these days, including a new less expensive Class C model, and it simply needs to cut back services based on the volume. Tiffin has always been one of the better companies about taking care of its customers, so I bet this change was not an easy decision. Again, all this is just my guess.


      • I just bought a 2013 Tiffin Allegro RED at Lazydays in Seffner, FL. None of the Tiffin owners I came across at the cafeteria, restaurant, laundry, etc said anything about this. I only heard great stories of anyone who owned ANY Tiffin coming in and getting wonderful service. I was SHOCKED to read this in today’s newsletter.

        • Steven, I believe the announcement came to owners (and to us) suddenly. So maybe the Lazydays didn’t know. Or maybe they knew and didn’t tell you. In any event, bad timing on your part. The good news, you probably bought an excellent unit when you bought a Tiffin.

  • Way I should buy a used Milepost 2016 between $200.00 and $4,525.00 + $ 3.99 for shipping over your link, when I need the 2017 edition?

    • The milepost costs less than $50
      2017 was on sale at Walmart in Alaska last summer when we were there so bought as a souvenier since the one we used got so beat up. Haven’t checked to see how much selling for on this site, but shocked here at the prices mentioned.

      • Linda, we used the wrong link, which we corrected this morning after we learned about the error. It’s about $24, I think.

  • Chuck, that was a great reminiscence in the editorial. Being a “tech” guy, I’ve lived through, and invented some of, the gadgets in all of our lives today. (I carried three different versions of that Moto flip-phone you pictured, back in the late ’90’s.)

    I’m amazed (after reading your thoughts) at how recent some of the changes have been. Only 10 years of iPhones? Wow. I’m also amazed at how far computing has come since my early days (late ’60’s) when I programmed Air Force machines in COBOL with IBM punch-cards.

    Thanks again for the fine work on the newsletter.

  • Just thinking that you haven’t mentioned Cheese Its in a very long time. Did you go “cold turkey” on them? I once made a whole meal of them as I drove across the USA.

  • Chuck, thanks so much for the link for the free gaffer tape last week. I got my roll yesterday, so I’ll see how well it works. I always enjoy and look forward to your weekly email every Saturday.

  • Dear Chuck. I particularly enjoyed your editorial in this week’s newsletter. It was a very interesting retrospective and I was pleased to hear that your readership is on the rise again. Yours is by far the most helpful an interesting publication available to the RVing community and I want to personally thank you for all the work and dedication you give to the task of publishing this weekly missive.
    I thought it was a very good suggestion to pass the sign up information along to our Facebook friends and I will do so today.
    Best wishes, Chuck, for your continued success. Sincerely, Sheridan Ball

    • Thank you, Sheridan. We try very hard to provide valuable information in every issue. I receive great satisfaction at how many RVers we have helped through the years. I know we have even provided information that has saved lives. My staff and I will continue to be even more valuable to our readers in the years ahead. I appreciate your kind words. Again, thank you. And thanks for telling your Facebook friends!!!

  • Chuck, I worked for Ind. Bell for 35 years and I seen my share of changes over that time.I can remember when we needed a small hand cart to carry a Data Set,now they are the size of a pin head.Do you remember the Bag Phone?I had one for work.I think communications has come faster than any other thing. Keep up the good work,look forward to the news letter each Saturday.


  • Hey Chuck. I really enjoy your newsletter. Thank you for your efforts and your love for what you do. Keep up the good work.

      • RE: using Comet to get rid of ants. Well, CINNAMON is even better. Get a big container at the dollar store. Spread it around your RV or house.

  • Tiffin put it out to some owners around the first of the year about the service of 4 year old motorhomes. they don’t work on them for nothing so more work more money why not add on and make more money?

  • Swami Hal hit the nail almost on the head with my March horoscope. I am at an RV Resort in the Houston area for a while and a man came looking for me, by name, and told the woman at the office that I had purchased my trailer from him and hadn’t been paying. He wanted to repossess it! I purchased my trailer from the factory. He left after being told he had the wrong person and he had to leave. What in the world!
