  1. I joined about 4-5 years ago when the previous vendor was supplying the plaques. The one I was sent was a flat plastic plaque with a vinyl sticker applied to it, but there was an order form if I wanted to order a molded plastic one which looked just like the older aluminum ones. I did that and still have the molded one on the rear of the coach. On the front I had them make another vinyl sticker without the plastic backing, and then just stuck it on the front in the spot for a second license plate. Can't figure out why we went to a new vendor if they cannot supply what members want with good quality.
  2. I've clicked the 'report post' button a bunch of times lately about these troll posts, so hopefully it's going somewhere. Always assumed that the reports go to the moderator(s) of the forum. If an FMCA membership is not needed to join the Forum, then why would they even need to fake a membership number? I don't know what the problem is exactly which has led to the recent increase in problem posting, but there is certainly a problem.
  3. There is already a 'report' button. It's located in the upper-right hand corner of each post. Just hover your mouse cursor over the shadow icon and the words "Report Post" pop up. Maybe it needs to be made more prominent.
  4. From what I understand the vendor did change a couple of years ago from the long-time vendor to someone new.
  5. Looks like they're at it again. Is there anything that can be done?
  6. Signing into the forum is not the same as signing into the membership portal. Different login credentials for both, at least for me. Most of the time I'm not logged into the FMCA membership portal but am still able to log into the FMCA Forums. Of course if I sign out of the forum I won't be able to post, that's not the question. The question is does someone need to be a paid FMCA member to sign up for the forum.
  7. If this is true, then are people joining FMCA just so they can post junk on the forum? Doesn't seem logical. I thought that non-members could join the forums, but I don't know for certain.
  8. Quick followup on this project as it finally nears completion. I filled the NOS airline oiler/filter with the Shutterstat fluid today and got it installed, and then was able to confirm that the shutters themselves now open and close smoothly on their own with air. Guess oiling those shutters over the past few years even though I couldn't use them paid off, as they worked great. Only one piece left to test, the Shutterstat itself. I'll need to get the engine to full temp, and then I'll be able to check to make sure that it closes the air supply to the shutters as it should, and I hope to do that this weekend when I get the coach out for its first run for the season.
  9. Is any type of screening or verification done when new forum members sign up?
  10. It seems to me that there has been an increase in the number of way off-topic, cryptic postings on the FMCA Forums. Has something changed with the sign-up process which has made this easier or are we just having a spat of bad luck? Is there anything that can be done on the back end to help filter these out?
  11. Lots of good top-tier brands out there with competitive pricing on 19.5" tires. I'd feel much more comfortable driving on tires with a reputation behind them.
  12. I've read so many reviews in the past few years and to be honest they don't hold as much weight for me as they used to. Seems like a fairly new player on the US market, at least in this part of the country. Better than user reviews, I tend to look for longevity and track record of performance, number of recalls, etc.
  13. I must have been reading too many safety threads recently. On first glance I thought this thread was about a coach that slide off the jacks and killed someone. Glad to find out it's 'just' an issue with the electrical system. In my experience, the vast majority of electrical problems wind up being related to ground connections. They have an amazing way of looking great but being electrically horrible.
  14. Asking for tire brand recommendations is kind of like asking for oil brand suggestions - one of those things that are very subjective. To me, any of the top-tier tire brands are going to serve you well. Personally I prefer the Firestone offerings, but there are others who will never buy Firestone. Michelin remains popular, but they are pricey. Goodyear, Hankook, and a few other top-tier brands make tires in your size. I've been using the TireMinder TPMS system and like it. They have good customer support in my experience and so far I have not had difficulties.
