  1. Joined months ago and had one email saying your FMCA plaque is delayed because they don't have a vendor. No other communications. I also would like an ID Card and yes I know I can print one out here. So what did I pay for? At the moment access to the private FMCA forum.
  2. This is great for everyone to review. A great link to the VFW website and Flag protocols. Flag Etiquette - VFW
  3. Five, You are 100% correct and I have forwarded your remarks to the President of the SMART FMCA Chapter and assured me that it will not happen again in future displays. Thank you very much in catching this error and hope this will make insure our American Flag is properly flown and draped properly and respectfully. Thank You, John I

    Iggy's on the Road Pictures

    Just a few pictures while on the road travelling.
  6. Rayin Take a look what I wrote on the Veterans forum here. Did you know FMCA has a Joint Military Chapter? - Veterans Corner - FMCA RV Forums – A Community of RVers
  7. FMCA Announcement and Introduction to SMART A new collaboration between SMART and the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA). Special Military Active Recreational Travelers (SMART) brings military veterans, and their families together to share camaraderie, travel, camping, and support to our veterans. All active, retired, and honorably discharged veterans from U.S. and Canadian Armed Forces, interested in recreational travel, and sharing the camaraderie developed in the military are welcome. This includes; Reserve, National Guard, Air National Guard, Coast Guard, and also USPHS, and NOAA. Who’s A Veteran? - A veteran, as defined by federal law, moral code and military service is; “Any person who served for any length of time in any military service branch.” Emphasis on serving Veterans - We have chapters for full-timers, golfers, and for members who just like to travel. Married or single, owning a motorhome, travel trailer, 5th wheel, truck camper, or pop-up, our chapters offer activities to include: simple pleasures such as playing games, socializing, sharing potluck meals on weekend camp-outs, and monthly luncheons; to involvement in community activities, and volunteering at Veterans' Homes and Hospitals. Members volunteer and participate in Habitat for Humanity, the Marine Corps' Toys for Tots, Sew Much Comfort, and others. Website SMART FMCA (smartrving.org)
  8. Yes Herman. I have heard the same good people and entertainment on the back porch. Also overnight prices a lot more reasonable than closer to town.
  9. Hi, Been in FMCA a short time and wanted to stop and say hello to my fellow Brothers and Sisters. Retired USAF 1968 - 1989 Lets see if anyone here knows about my Squadron. 21st TASS out of Cam Rahn Bay. "Hit My Smoke" FAC Call Sign "India India"
  10. I will be heading from Arizona cross county soon with many stops along the way. Been to all previously stops except Nasville Tennessee which we have 7 nights layover. We are staying north out of town at the Grand Ole RV Park. I know about the Grand Ole Opry and that's it. How about a fun River boat dinner cruise or a City tour your liked and any other attractions you really enjoyed. Any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. Iggy
  11. My suggestion is to look at the NEW Forest River Georgetown line. GT3, GT5 and top of the line GT7 The new Ford chassis and new gas 7.3L engine is hands down better than the V10.
  12. Ford Says this is the replacement for their V10. Ford Godzilla V8 is 7.3L V8 350hp 368 ft lbs torque I have over 11,000 miles since April 2021 and it is one amazing gas V8 engine. Driven over the Rockies from Grand Junction CO to Denver with no problem. Compared to the Ford V10 which i originally had the V8 has more hp, more torque than the V10. Also smaller footprint and have been told 100 lbs lighter. 465hp 480 lbs torque Many race car drivers are using the block because its strong design and great cooling and lube channels and taking it up to outrageous hp levels. I have a 39 ft rig on a 22k chassis and I get 7 to 9 MPG depending on the road conditions. Hills wind, traffic, etc Now Ford has F53 MH chassis from 16k to 24k and more weight has negative impact on mileage. Ford definitely got a winner. As you can see this is one of the reasons I was asking for a new GAS Motorhome category. Thanks for asking.
  13. Good morning Eric, Over time the motor gear or the main step gear get worn down from many years of use. My initial thought is that you have broken a tooth on the the motor gear and unable to engage the main gear. Sometimes if you are able to remove the motor and rotate the motor gear 180 degrees may use the non-worn teeth of the gear to be used. If this is not possible then an RV Mechanic may need to do it or have the bad gear replaced. Hope this was helpful to you in taking your NEXT STEP. lol Iggy
