Judy and I have had an RV for seven years and sadly don’t get to use it as often as we would like. We do read News for RVers as well as other publications, to include FMCA. It seems in nearly every issue, there is a recall from Forest River. Though other manufacturers also have recalls, Forest River appears to have a very high percentage due to significant engineering or assembly errors, often that could result in serious injury or death. Why does the industry allow such shoddy workmanship to continue without some penalty? Does the RVIA not have any interest or authority to address such issues? I’ve read with interest, articles regarding the need for all RV manufacturers to improve on the engineering and quality of their products. The auto industry is held to a higher standard but maybe the RV industry should have their standards raised as well. Similar to boat ownership, an RV is a box that you pour money into to keep it road worthy. There must be a better way!

I read an article on RV Travel about how to check your air conditioners with a temperature gauge at the furthermost register and at the intake register. If anyone has that article can you please forward that to me at boatmanofamerica@gmail.com
It was in the last 2 to 4 days!

Thank You,

Hi, Steve. The comments are still there as far as I can tell. Haven’t heard from anyone else having trouble seeing them. Maybe you just didn’t scroll down far enough? Maybe gremlins? 🙂 —Diane at RVtravel.com

Either the photo accompanying the article about the tire blow out isn’t of the actual accident or ,A) the blow out occurred on the tow vehicle or B) someone is blaming poor driving/judgement on tires or C) there was some other equipment failure. All 4 trailer tires in the photo are intact. Had a trailer tire blow out caused this wreck there would be at least one or more tires with obvious damage.

I LOVE your new format. It makes it interesting to search for stories and fun to follow.

We long-time Colorado residents only wish the 2002 Hayman Fire had burned 18 square miles. It actually burned 215 square miles, but was just surpassed in area by the still-active Pine Gulch Fire located north of Grand Junction.

On the brain teaser, wouldn’t two bananas together like that be 55? So the answer would be 62.

It would be 54 if you determined that two bananas together was 55. (55+3-4)

I was thinking the same. You cannot just put two bananas that represent the number 5 in the same place and call it 10. If the intention is that the banana values are added together then an operator is needed between them.

The thieves of the class C rig shouldn’t be hard to spot- they’re standing right in front of the rig.

No I thought the same thing. Thieves can be pretty stupid. But don’t count on the Portland police investigating, they are a little too busy right now.

Glacier national park had more than 100 Glaciers in 1910. How many glaciers are there today?

On the stolen “2000 Fleetwood Jamboree Class A”… umm, isn’t that a photo of a Class C motorhome?

Hi, your brain teaser answer should be 4, not 9. 5+3-4=4.

If you look carefully, you will see TWO bananas together in the last equation.

Looking at the picture on my cell phone, I see 2 bananas top to bottom but 1 banana left to right. It might be different on a computer.

Hi, Mark. As others have commented, if you enlarge the image you can see there are two bananas in the last row, so 5+5+3-4=9. “Close, but no banana.” (A version of the old saying, “Close, but no cigar.”) Sorry … couldn’t resist. 🙂 —Diane at RVtravel.com
