  1. Should FMCA Allow Towable RVs-- Vote NOW

    Great post from Mike and Cindy. There are just no real benefits to draw younger members.
  2. Should FMCA Allow Towable RVs-- Vote NOW

    No, I bought tires at the FMCA discount price. It was not that much better than if I had tried to buy without the discount. Since I only need tires every 7 years I will just re-join 6 years from now. Since 1994 I have only recently discovered that benefit and only used it this one time in 23 years.
  3. Air Filter Life Expectancy

    I drive a lot of miles each year so I replace mine every 2 years.

    Maybe I could look up the information on line but there's not a chance I would be saving 10 years worth of of any kind of magazine! Glad it works for you. Heck, when I did renew my membership last year they never even sent a single magazine. Not sure what the membership benefits includes these days but I don't see where I received even 1.
  5. Check out the casino in Ruiduso. No amenities but power and cheap. Doesn't get any better than that!
  6. Convection/Microwave Ovens

    That's one of my most favorite things that the wife makes from scratch and bakes in our Convection oven. If you like them in a home oven you will love them in a convection oven. Be careful, the timing is different (shorter/faster) with convection heat. From my experience, however, the temp settings are not very accurate and be off by 25-50 degrees from what is set.

    If we are talking about age, I was 39 when I joined FMCA back in '94. We were VERY part time with an entry level DP. We only upgraded once and that was to our current coach which we purchased in '99. Only one reason to be here and that "was" information about Motor homes for Motor Home owners. Age does not need to be a factor but if you look at the majority of FMCA RV reviews (at least a huge number) you will find that most RVers could never afford the RVs reviewed. What say you focus more on the Motor home for the average Joe and not the RV for the rich!
  8. Trip Planning Apps

    You can do most whatever you want with Google Maps. Planning works better on a computer than on the phone but it's still great. It won't do calculate 5-6 hours of driving but you can put in stopping points and it will show the time and distance. If that is too long or too short remove that and select another stopover in an area you would like to stay. I plan most of my trips this way but I also revert back to a mapping program last update in 2002 from Rand McNally which does to everything you want. It really to **** bad that Rand won't re-release this software called TripMaker it is the best planning tool I have ever used to travel. You can set how fast you drive, when the trip starts and ends, time you leave and time you plan to stop and it keeps a record of the entire trip. In my case, my trip starts in Jan and ends in December so I have our entire travels for the entire year on one map.

    Thanks! As a member since 1994 I have never heard of this.
  10. OK, thanks. Let's stick with the idea that it was simply a clerical error. I'm OK with that as it's really not important any longer considering the bigger issue of destroying the FMCA concept by turning into another Good Sam.
  11. Convection/Microwave Ovens

    Yes, you can use only the convection side. No microwaves. This will be using settings like Bake, Roast or similar but you don't want to use anything that says mix or combo. The wife does nothing with microwave and uses the convection side almost daily.
  12. I don't believe that is correct. There are "unlimited" Government contracts available from Verizon. Not sure how FMCA would qualify for one of these. If you know the details of how they could have such a contract and believe they could resell it to others, please give us the details.

    What is a Round Bottom Road CG and what does that have to do with FMCA?
  14. This is the first I have heard of FMCA having a Government contract with Verizon so I suspect some clarity in the very beginning would have helped with the speculation. Not sure how anyone could have known that FMCA had a Government contract considering they are in no way related to the Government. Thank you for the clarification.
  15. You can use me as a scape goat but I never said anything about reselling a governmnet contract. You say "no one at Verizon caught this until it was already being offered". Verizon did not catch what? You have offered NO explanation so it's not even the beginning of the story, much less the end. I am sure there was a lucid thought in there when you typed this but I am not sure what you are trying to say.
