Ready-to-Use Forum Replies

After participating in this forum since 2005, I’ve come to the conclusion that there are really only 12 possible responses to any topic. The rest are all variations of the original twelve. So if you want to boost your status by being helpful, just pick one of these. I guarantee they’ll do the trick. I've been using them for years.

Sounds like a ground problem to me. I had the same problem and it turned out to be the ground.

You must be new to the forum. This issue has been thrashed to death so why don’t you just use the “search” option and save everybody a lot of grief.

Just spray on some W-D 40. That’ll do the trick.

Congratulations. We had one a couple of years ago and loved it.

If you had a diesel pusher, you wouldn’t have that problem. If I were you…I’d trade in that rig for a diesel. You’ll never go back.

I had one of those. It’s nothing but a piece of junk.

I’d sue the manufacturer and the dealer. That’ll get their attention.

Sound’s great. Maybe you could send us some photos.

My manual says to do just the opposite.

Once that happens…it’ll never work right. I’d think about getting a new one.

Click here.

I’d call the dealer if I were you.

You missed a few:

Duct tape will hold it for a while.

Eternabond will fix your roof.

I only use Amsoil, the best oil in the universe.

What is the date code on your tires?

Make sure there really is a water heater in the water piping system.

1 Your Ford is not nearly as good as my Chevy.

2 Your should call the manufacturer to find the
answer.

3 I don't have a clue what to answer but I know a little bit and I will just type it up and state it as fact.

And then there are the questions with insufficient description, no MH or trailer specified, and they ask how do I fix it. And they get responses which they shouldn't..

There are probably a couple of more:

- you'll never pull your 5er/TT with THAT truck

- it has to be your batteries

Well... I do agree the "This has been hashed to death use the search" could likely coer 99% of the original posts in most of these forums.

The other stock answers are

RTFM ((Though frankly some of the manuals I've seen are not much good))

Contact the manufacturer

Take it to a professional

and lastly, though we almost never actually see it

"You have a One Dee, Ten Tee, error there" (Using numbers and single letters write it out 1 d 10 t leaving out the spaces)

Like I said, we don't often see that one.... Frankly this is a good thing (Mostly cause the O/P is almost never the 10-T, He is simply uninformed or mis-informed thanks to the delivery technician)

I forgot a classic.

We keep a loaded AK-47 and a Glock 9mm under our Sleep Number mattress for that exact situation.

This is another one that gets the 'thanks for nothing' award...

I've been RVing for 55 years. Never had that problem.

It is said you only need two things in your tool box.. WD-40 and Duct Tape

If it moves and it should not.. Duct tape

If it don't move and it should WD-40

Of course... This is a joke

For example: Today I've done two "repair" jobs

2: Wife called, her scooter quit running all of a sudden... Repair, LIft out battery and replace with the power cable slightly re-routed and plug back in.. Yup, plug came out.

1: Fellow camper could not connect to the internet.. Blasted computer had VISTA (Ug) on it, major battle, Finally found the right window to re-set the Wi-Fi Security to "OPEN" and.. Connected, just that fast. Man is that easier with XP

My favorite is the totally irrelevant response! Case in point, recent post and response:
___________
OP

any one been to yellowstone? looking to go there..... Any advice on the rv parks would be great....

I suggest that you might stay in Williams at the Grand Canyon Railway Park. It is new and clean.
