  1. Check Out Our New Verizon MIFI Benefit!

    BillyBarks, I think you have made the most sense over the recent posts in that not one plan is right for everyone. If it isn’t don’t get it. If it does then buy it.

    Chris: We appreciate your comments to clarify the issues. Thank you.

    So do Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Red Cross, United Way, Goodwill, churches.... and we could go on and on.

    I think it was 2008, but I have deleted all that information from my computer. So I cannot verify.
  5. Should FMCA Allow Towable RVs-- Vote NOW

    Smithy is correct. The statistics I referred to was the information given to me as the basis when we quoted 10 different providers and requested RFQ from about 50 providers. When we needed to find another provider, the change in age increase was given to me.

    Chris who? And why was my name included in your statement?
  8. Tire Pressures When Tires Hot

    I checked tire this morning at 33 degrees, 107 psi. After driving for about 4 hours at 56 degrees, all tires 120-122 psi. Went into rain outside temp 48, all tires 116-118 psi. I have never seen above 122 psi in 90,000 miles. The above seems to be normal.

    No, it is not easy because the Governing Board is the highest authority in FMCA. The Governing Board directed that the issue be placed before the membership; therefore, the vote is in process and will be done.

    The Governing documents rate in order: Articles of Incorporation, Constitution, Bylaws, and policy and procedures in the Member and Volunter Handbook. The articles state the legal identity in the state of Ohio. The Constitution states who we are as an organization. The Bylaws state what we do. The P&P’s state how we do it.

    From the membership it does take 20 different member numbers not people to start the process. If I remember correctly that petition must be in before January 1st before the next Governing Board meeting where it is to be considered. The Governing Board can reject, refer back to Committee or send it on to the membership to be voted upon. Only the Governing Board can reverse their decision; therefore, this ballot cannot be stopped without a special called Governing Board meeting. If you are wanting something different than the current proposal, then the vote must put down the proposed change. A new proposal could then be created for Governing Board consideration in July, 2018.

    FMCA provided the data to me, but that was before the computer conversion.
  13. Dash Lights Staying On

    See if the light switch has either headlights or parking lights on.
  14. Good Sam Roadside Assistance

    At Chandler the VAS rep did the seminar on FMCA Roadside Assistance. He stated that they until a few years ago supplied Coach Net and several others. I had Coach Net during the time that VAS was the real service company. When Coach Net increased their price, I went looking elsewhere. You will probably find more on Safe Ride. It’s like easurance (spelling) that is owned by Allstate.

    When I chaired the first Committee to select the provider for FMCASSIST the average age of our membership was 66 years + or - 2 months based on gender. Seven years later, the average age was 71 with the same 2 months except the gender had switch as which was younger or older. Statically, any insurance company will tell you the older the group insured, the greater the claims. As more of our members become aware that this insurance is provided and get older, more claims are made. We still have members that still don’t know we have this insurance or know the procedure to activate the service. Also, cost of the services has increased. Early years the average repatriation cost was $18,000. The last I heard, the cost had increased to $24,000 and that was a few years ago.
