We, too, are grateful for the information we have received from all the on-line forums. Must admit tho that we are partial to IRV2, just because we have met so many really nice people here. Sadly there are those on some forums who have to express their frustrations on the less RV enlightened among us, ourselves included. Hopefully they will have a better day tomorrow.

Best to all....Jack&Rita

I like RV.Net and iRV2, both sites have their place and I'm on both equal an amount of time. The moderators on any site have a tough, thankless job as you can't please everyone. I have noticed there's much less "bullying" here than there. I tend to ignore the malcontents and use the blocking feature, it makes it much more pleasant when visiting!

On second thought, I agree more with what you say than what I said about the RV.net mods in my earlier posting.

I also use both RV.Net and this forum and totally agree with the majority of the posters about the difference in the civility scale in both forums. There are a few posters at RV.Net that are just trolling or waiting for a chance to post rude/nasty comments or answers on just about anything someone would post. But, sometimes you just have to take it with a grain of salt. Maybe, the cloak of anonymity afforded by this medium has emboldened some of them to do what they are doing.

Well - After I found this forum I quit looking elsewhere. I take the open mindedness here as a positive way to help. Some of my posts may have helped someone;just as the replies i have received have benefited me. If it's "my way or the highway" i guess that's why the interstate is so full. There's always a way to get home even if the roads got a fork-mud-bridge out- whatever- patience returns more than we ever expect. Just keep on posting and help us all.

I ran into an individual there with a bit of an attitude. He made a posting that was based upon out-dated information. By his own admission, he had not looked at this particular product in a good number of years, but he somehow felt he was still the authority on it.

When I attempted to point out that his information was mistaken using specific, current product data and specs complete with website links, he responded with a personal attack on me, basically implying my opinion was meaningless.

That said, I still drop in on a fairly regular basis, and continue to post when I feel I have something worthwhile to offer, kind of like what I do here.

It's getting where I post here more than there. I've had a few problems with members that just need to make you feel crappy as they do, and it's gotten old.

I cross posted identical threads and while I didn't get a single reply here I got some petty ones there. Cross posting is a good litmus test I think, can give a good feel for how the different forums react.

Of course YMMV, that's why each seem to do well. Each forum suits people differently.

I'm fairly new to this site.....and I find that both iRV2.com and RV.net have both have advantages over each other...and that makes them both great, in my book.

RV.net is the 800 pound Gorilla in the RV Forum arena....with a huge following. It seems that at times, it becomes overwhelmed with itself...and the moderators do things that don't make any sense. But, since I do things that don't make sense at times, I figure they are entitled.

This site has a great community, but I'm working on getting used to finding my way around it. I like many of the options (a much greater collections of smilies, for example) and such....but it seems as if the threads don't get as much attention as the RV.net ones do.

I will remain with both....and any other RV forum that I find, because it's an educational experience, and we all need to learn a bit more from time to time.....very few of us are "Experts", but we can all toss in our two-cents, from personal experiences, which will help out our fellow RVers.

Moderators on both sites do an excellent job....yeah, give 'em a raise!

Both are great sites. The only thing I dont like about Irv2 is it allows advertising sponsers.[I know thats how the place runs] I hate when i go to lets say a shock question a guy will ask whats better Koni or Bilstein and the next thing a member usually a moderator will be saying and dont forget Joe Blow sells them and he is a sponser. If I wanted to know were to get them i would have asked and im sure I can find them cheaper somewere else. This place has better smilies though

Really new to this forum also & just trying to find my way around. Nice to see a few familiar names. Like PapPappy belong to a number of sites. Follow each for different reasons / friends pick up along the way. Have not personally had anything but good response from mods. JMHO, K

Howdy!

We fulltime an I look at three forums each day Escapees, RV.NET and IRV2. Each has something to offer and thy to get past the other stuff.

"Happy Trails"

I look at both of them, also others to gain information and give information when I think I can give imput. I don't worry about who reviews what.

Well said ROM!! I've gotten tired of the nastiness/pettiness that can be displayed on rv.net. Got tons of useful info off the site over the years but the negativity could be a real drag. The funny part is that I followed a link in a rv.net thread to this site. So far I'm finding this site to be much more civil.

Don
