I did a second run down the page, this time paying much more attention, and voila! I found it.
So if a person is used to speed reading they'll miss it every time.
For me the problem was TT& 5th Wheel - ToyHaulers I only saw the first of the heading if it were ToyHaulers - TT& 5th Wheel I would not have missed it.
I don't know if that would make any difference but ToyHaulers should be part of the section Header also, if it was maybe I wouldn't have missed it there.
My own opinion is if you want people to visit you have to lead them there that's a fact we are indoctrinated to the world of advertising and do not even realize it.

See how easy it is to go off topic, but we will go right back on of our own accord

New to the site! Class 8 guys please help!

OK! this is the first and only thread I looked at because it was asking for help. Please read the posts and tell me why a new member who joined on Nov. 09 hasn't posted since. I;m sure the expertise is available here also.

Cheers
Willey

Note: Still OFF Topic but I think it's worth while discussing here without moving. Back on topic soon.

Guess the referral to the Escapees forum must have been a good one.....

I was actually on that one quite a while before I found this site. I, too, saw so much nasty treatment that it REALLY turned me off. I also didn't appreciate being told I asked a "stupid" question. Not the place I would recommend a novice to go to.

I hardly ever go there any more. Not sure if I could remember my screen name Everything I need is here and NO ONE has ever made me feel less for not knowing everything there is to know.

I used to use RV.NET. Over 1K posts. Now I stay at iRV2. I just don't care to bother with the low class posts. And there are way too many of them. iRV2 is my home and I advertise it as such. The reason is the "G" rating and members are not allowed to criticize another post. Just state you position and let the reader decide what to believe. I can get all the information I need at iRV2. At RV.NET I found their volume is extremely repetitive. Man y people post just so they can post. It means nothing that their information has already been stated several times over and over and over again. I'll take the quality without the quantity.

Hi Sheila, all through out my life's learning (which was a long one so far) I was taught that there was no such a thing as a Stupid Question, but there certainly were stupid answers.
I have to say I just love that line and best time I ever used it was at a Town meeting when the mayor instead of answering a direct question muttered something about a stupid question. That made my day as I rose again and said to her "Your worship" (correct title for the mayors here)" there is no such thing as a stupid question but there certainly are stupid answers like the one I just got from you". Well there was a lot of pounding of the gavel and hollers of "Order"
So if it is ever said to you again, remember there is an appropriate, polite and effective answer to use.

Cheers
Willey

Sound like a very good option, Willey, thanks!

I read there quite regularly the thing I like best is I can get the new posts regardless of which part of the site they are on. I have a motorhome but sometimes there are topics in the 5th wheel section that are of interest so I can check those without going to that particular part and going through all the other posts .here i usually just check the parts where I think I might find something of interest so I may miss an interesting thread

You can do the same thing on iRV2 by clicking New Posts on the teal-colored tool bar at the top of each page.

You should try them all and take what suits you from each, they have a ton of traffic over ther so they must be doing something right.Love it here but they all have their place.

rvparkreviews.com also has a forum, but it is not nearly as heavily used as RV.net, RV Forum or IRV2. Each has their good points, it just depends on what you are looking for. To use one and not another is to possibly deprive yourself of some interesting and informative information.
