  1. Check Out Our New Verizon MIFI Benefit!

    Although the timing of this announcement, being about a week right after the Verizon plan could cause some confusion...
  2. Check Out Our New Verizon MIFI Benefit!

    Confusing? Seemed pretty straight forward to me. Another optional benefit that as a member one can chose to take advantage of.. or not,,,,
  3. Check Out Our New Verizon MIFI Benefit!

    Chindog, The plan is not limited to 256 gb. It is an unlimited plan. See info from FMCA announcement. "Get a mobile hotspot for only $.01 with a 2-year agreement when you sign up for the $49.99/month Mobile Broadband Plan (plus taxes & fees), plus get unlimited data.*" As per the details, if you go over 256 gb in any one month, the speed may be reduced. Would likely only be an issue if you were constantly streamjng video.
  4. Final Decision On Mail Forwarding Service

    Like myself, I am sure that many members prefer reading the actual magazine than reading a digital copy on a PC. I dislike eBooks and such. I consider the actual magazine one of the most important benefits of FMCA. I suppose to save $$, FMCA could ask each member at sign up or renewal to select which format they wanted? If many members chose digital only, the savings could be big.

    This appears to be a great deal! Thanks to FMCA for bringing it to the members!
  6. Hot Water Turns Cold When Shower Paused

    This annoyance is more common than you may think and in most cases is not an indication of an issue in your plumbing system, just a leaky shower head switch. What is likely happening is that the switch on your shower head, when in the shut off position, is turning off the hot water flow entirely but not the cold. Thus the trickle of cold water. As the cold water continues to run it cools off the water in the line from the taps to your shower head. Once you flip the switch back to on, the cold water in the line flows through, eventually allowing the hot to make its way back. It does seem to take a long time. We have had this issue with many shower heads....still have it in our current MH.

  8. Coming To America: Accommodations In FL

    Greetings paulh, You might want to look into the many cabin and cottage rentals available at the many KOA campgrounds in Florida. There are over 20 RV parks throughout. Some really nice. Just go to KOA.com and search Florida. And yes, I would book now.

  12. Bag Of Glass Beads For Balancing???

    Have had beads in my drive tires with valve extenders for two yeaars now. Work great, no problems so far....
  13. Motorhome Financing

    Agree with Bill. Our RV dealer told us in 2010 when we traded our 2001 Suncruiser that an RV less than 10 years old will attract a higher resale price as financing options are more plentiful for potential buyers.
  14. No Hot Water

    I agree with Wildebill. Your water heater likely has a check valves on th outlet which is stuck. Replacing it is the only solution. This happened on my 2001 Suncruiser several years back.

  16. Oval FMAC Number Plate Decal

    Sorry, I read more into your thought "That is on the assumption that you can find any real reason that you need this thing on your coach." than you meant,,,,
  17. Oval FMAC Number Plate Decal

    I proudly display my oval and will do so until such time I withdraw from FMCA. Glad to hear others are interested in doing so as well. BillA, why such a Debbie Downer?
  18. Workhorse Differential Gear Oil Change

    According to my owners manual for my 2009 Workhorse W series chassis, the correct differential rear axle fluid is Chevron Delo Gear ESI SAE 80W-90 gear oil. I believe the filler plug is easily removed with a wrench, no heating applied. I usually have this done when the MH is in for service. Very inexpensive.
  19. House Battery Recommendations

    I use EverStart Deep Cycle batteries from Wal-Mart. reasonably priced and as long as you maintain their levels, long lasting.
