    • Getting terms straight; an extended service contract is not, by law, a warranty, even though most people refer to an ESC as a warranty. As you already know, a contract leaves little wriggle room. An ESC contract contains specific conditions for filing a claim, and prerequisites must be followed prior to assenting to having repairs performed. An exclusionary contract states what is NOT covered, by omission everything else IS covered. An inclusion contract states what IS covered, by omission everything else is NOT covered. Bottom line, an exclusionary contract is best. If you decide to purchase an ESC add the gaskets and seals rider, otherwise if a gasket fails allowing fluids to leak out the resulting consequential damage is not covered. We bought a 3 yr ESC from Camping World when we purchased our MH in 2013. By the end of the contract it paid for itself and perhaps a bit more. As you see our MH is a 2000, which IMO made an ESC prudent. No claims were made on the chassis, all were for the coach portion. On a different RVing forum a member did not have an ESC, the engine dropped the #6 cylinder valves resulting in a $30,000 repair bill. I wonder if anyone who "self-insures" has that kind of savings account?
    • On occaision for no reason I can understand I have received mail overnight.
    • I lived in San Diego for 35 years before I went full time including 7 years in Santee and could see Santee Lakes from my back yard. Santee Lakes is a very nice camp ground if you can get in. In 5 yrs of RVing I have never been able to get a reservation. When I stayed at the KOA there was a Navy family living there with kids. They have a pool and playground area for the kids. Chula Vista RV Resort is good but expensive. There is also Mission Bay Rv Resort also expensive. Camp land by the Bay is very expensive and very crowded but the kids will love it. The Elks Lodge in Chula Vista and El Cajon are just a parking lot with electric hookup. The Oceanside Elks has full hookup but is also just a parking lot. Sweet water park in Bonita is very nice and inexpensive but I believe it may have a two week limit not sure. Pala ( in San Diego County) and Pachengia ( in Temecula) Indian Casino RV Resorts are truly Resorts, medium price but a little bit of a drive from downtown. 
    • The lack of anything on the display lists 4 things to check. Have you verified that there is 12V-dc power at the terminal block in the rear of the refrigerator? You should find that terminal block on the floor of the space inside of the rear access panel and usually, it is to the left side, near the 120V power outlet. If you do not have power there, you must find what the course is. In most cases, there is a fuse on the  RV's 12V distribution panel that supplies it. There is also a 3A fuse on the main circuit board for the 12V supply. Either of those will give the symptom that you have. 
    • The AL that I used to belong to before I went full time had a separate smoking section. You were not allowed to smoke at the bar or dinning room area. I think this policy should be at every location to assist those members who are not smokers and still provide an area for those who do smoke.
