That's what camping is all about - fun, enjoyment, nice people meeting nice people - the grouches (if any) can stay home.
I'm glad I don't park next to you. Getting revenge sounds very childish, if you have a problem speak to the people or manager. That's how wars are started.
Be nice it will come back to you in spades. The same is true if you seek revenge.

I have had some people snub me, I think its mainly because I'm a woman traveling alone. The wives don't know how to take me and the husbands are afraid to speak! LOL!


But then last year I met a couple from Canada, she didn't speak English at all and he did but I had to talk slowly. They were lovely people, he would run over and try to help me with things I didn't need any help with and she would just laugh. I like to go to Sherwood Forest in Kissimee and there are folks with new and older TT's and motorhomes too. I have never had a problem with anyone. One time when I first started out we stayed in a park on the beach and the neighbors were playing their music really loud at about 3 in the morning I finally asked if they could turn it
down a bit. They apologized and did. I love music but that night I was dead tired and just couldn't get to sleep.


But other then the woman thing I have never really had any issues with anyone. I wonder if I will this year when I take my dog. But he is good, not a barker, and just a friendly old boy, he is at least 12. But oh lordie, don't let him see a cat or a squirrel, he can still catch squirrels. This will be my first time traveling with him, I always have with my old cat who will be 20 this year.

OK, revenge was a bad word and I apologize for that. But the POINT was that we all are having fun. It's not about the coach or the age. If the coaches are in sad shape well that is different. I have had to send in pictures also - some of you will to - get over it, I have. If you don't want to send a picture (about 10 seconds on the cell phone) go elsewhere - I have done that also.

I don't even know how to send a picture on my cell. I usually stop about 3 or 4 and just drive in in case they are full or whatever. So far never a problem but of course I do expect to have an issue sometime, someplace. Guess I will just go on down the road.

Last year I was asked (3) times (in 6 months) to send pictures (twice in Fl and once in OR). I waited until I was parked and set up with the car in front. I took a picture with my cell phone and stored it in the photo file. The next two times I brought the picture up added the email address of the park we were headed for and pushed send. In a couple of minutes I received a call back confirming our reservations. While I am not sure I agree with the policy the owners have the right to set the restrictions as they see fit.

I was asked to send a picture last year when I was looking for a winter place in AZ, After I sent the pictures they asked when I wanted to check in. I think looks has a lot too do with it.

With my "Geezer" attitude, I believe that if I had to send a picture I would send it. But when the replay came back confirming a reservation (and it would) I would just text that I had found other arrangements while they were "holding court" and they could stuff their "oh so special" site. So you ask, what if I can't find something else? Well, I have a generator, fresh water and LP on board and I'm not scared to use them.

I have truly mixed feelings on this one.

I really do not begrudge the owner of a camp ground setting any rules he wants to. I am a strong supporter of a land owner should have the right to do what he wants, the way he wants to do it. If his decisions and choices are good for his business, or bad for it, that is his choice, and his responsibility.

On the other hand, I am most likely to not want to spend much time or money with those who feel they can make value judgments on such a shallow basis as a date.

It is not in my nature to make judgments on the value or worth of people based on their possessions, or such an arbitrary item as the manufacture date of one item a person may own. Those decisions are hard enough after you know a person, know what they do and do not do, how they treat others, and how they handle themselves.

I have known many bad people with nice possessions, and great people with lesser possessions.

You meet the nicest people on a Honda. Wait - wrong forum but right attitude.

You meet the nicest people in an RV. While not all people are not the nicest they are not limited to owning older units. It is how you act around the campfire that counts more than the age of your rig IMO.

Well 2 for zero, I just sent and received the go ahead for another season. Nothing but a few coats of wax (okay 4) and some exhaust work.
JMO,
Tim

I haven't been turned away yet. I haul a 2013 Cadillac SRX
so maybe that offsets my motorhome age. LOL!
LOOKS very nice, very good work keeping an older motorhome looking that nice.

Need a monitor panel

I have been searching online, have not contacted Fleet wood yet
but will.

The monitor panel is up front on the coach and also in the water bay.

Hubby unplugged the one up top and it worked in the bay so the bay
one must be bad.

I can't find one online, here are numbers and pics any help would
be appreciated.

It's an Intellitec 00-00242-000, 16591D FW monitor panel


It's for a 1992 American Eagle
