RV Life APP Crashes Today 9/24/21

Up until last night the RV Life App worked pretty good, there were times when it wanted me to pay again and times when it didn't want to let me pull up my planned route (or any other route at all). Those issues usually worked themselves out and I attributed it to Operator Error.

Last night it started crashing and I can't get past the log in page when it shuts down completely (crashes). I deleted and reloaded the app. Changed the PW. Cycled my iPhone off and on. What is going on? Is it me, the iPhone, or the App.

Question RVLife App is Bugging Out

Perhaps this is an isolated problem but about 2-3 days ago my RV Life app began resetting or even closing out on my iPhone while traveling. I was using the embedded RV GPS function at the time. Fortunately I run 2 GPS's in parallel (Garmin 770) just in case.
This morning the app, on my iPhone 12 (iOS 14) would open up then disappear. 3 or 4 times before I deleted the app off the phone and reloaded. Same result.
I went to the desktop version and was prompted to refresh my password. AHA! that must have been the problem?
After update, deleted then re-installed the app on my iPhone and entered new password when prompted. Same 'close-out' result.
BTW, the desktop version was quite satisfied with the new password and worked fine.
Final act of desperation was to delete iPhone app again, update to iOS 15, re-install app, only to get same result after entering new password.
App is currently deleted off the iPhone for now.
Anyone else seeing this issue?

BTW---after original post, I saw recent related post from DHew64. My apologies for 'double entry'.

I am having the SAME problem and made a post. Hopefully someone will answer today. We are moving again tomorrow. Glad to know I'm not out here by myself.

DHew64,
i just saw your post. I likely have the same problem as I posted just a few minutes ago on probably the same issue. Look for "RV Life App Bugging Out".
The App is not behaving well.

We’ve merged these two threads. We’re aware of this and it’s being worked on. Thank you both for posting.

Just an update folks, an update is being released to address these issues. For Android users this is already available. For IOS users we are waiting for the App store to release this but it's expected in the next few hours.

Thanks for your patience.

And another update:

An update has just been released to both the App store and to the Play store that should resolve this.

You can update RV LIFE app by going to the Apple Store (for Apple devices) or Google Play (for Android devices). Search for RV LIFE and download.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

DHew64,
I tried this and it worked (for now).
Go to the RV Life website on your laptop, desktop, etc. https://rvlife.com
Then scroll down to the banner screen for "RV Life App". Hit the "Learn More" button.
You will see you are given a choice to send the App download pathway as a text to your phone. Do that.
Before you click on the texted link, delete the current version of the App off your phone.
Now click the texted link and download as you would any app (note this version screen says recent fix has been for 'crashing on start-up').
When you open the app and login, it will....not crash.

I was having the same issue. Just now I removed the app from my iPhone 12 and reinstalled it from the App Store. It works!!

We did have problems navigating without it, but we used our garmin and it was ok. However, it needs to be updated too, but at least it worked. You don’t realize how much you rely on something until it’s gone.

Hmm. In response to my App Crashing, starting a bit over a week ago, I got this response. (see pic) So the response was kind of odd since (based on this thread) it was a known issue, and the app was updated prior to this email being sent on the 29th


RVTW support doesn't include any prior conversation for the issue and the support ticket is always the same number for me, I have submitted probably 5 issues over the last couple months, so its very odd using the same ticket number, having being involved with a few different support ticketing systems in the past.

Bill,


We do not see a ticket number normally. All replies for a ticket are kept together so they would have the same ticket number.



If you create a new ticket I would think it would have a new number.
