    Coach-Net Crashed on me

    If you received a complementary CoachNet membership with the purchase of you RV, it would not cover your TOAD unless it was being towed at the time--you'd have to upgrade.
  2. Ultimately, for most of us, we can only vote by where we spend our money. I understand because there are companies I won't buy from, but I find Andersen RV products innovative. Very few other companies seem to be willing to invest in research and development and I, for one, will continue to buy their products.
  3. Yep, just found that out. I have a "home" account and the option to update local channels is not available. Dish told me that it is only available if my outdoor equipment was on a separate account. Interesting that both receivers are on the same home account and I can update my locals by calling in, but not on the app.

    DISH comes through for RV'ers!

    I know it's coming, but it's not on the Dish app yet. I've reloaded the app, but it's local channel setting is not there.

    Re-packing wheel bearings

    I like what ramonediris posted, but I don't like using a race puller--I use a punch and a 4-pound hammer...it works much better for me. To install a new race use a bearing race and seal driver set...https://www.harborfreight.com/10-piece-bearing-race-and-seal-driver-set-63261.html This is the grease I use: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0053O9FQS/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    RV Lots The Original SKP Ranch

    The Wi-Fi at the Ranch is better than any RV park I've been to, but if you want to stream you'll be disappointed. It's always wise to keep water in your tanks at any RV park because sometimes maintenance needs to be done such as repairing a broken line, pump, or, as in our park, periodic reverse osmosis system maintenance/repairs.

    The intent is to stop open businesses and hanging out a "shingle". Making money from the use of your computer, that's not disturbing leaseholders, would not be contested.

    I think no one uses the boondock area because it's so inexpensive to stay here, e.g., $50 a week plus electricity for first time visitors.

    Nice comparison chart...looks like a lot of work. I will say that our boondock area and dump station are seldom used. I might see an RV there for a couple of days once every two months.

    Another leaseholder does most of the website updates...currently, I only update the area of the website that shows which lots are for lease.

    RV Lots The Original SKP Ranch

    Hi Gary, Start with http://skpranch.com/home from there go to the bottom of the page and you'll find six topic areas that have links titled "FIND OUT MORE". If you're interested in lot pictures and prices click on the "Lease Holders" link. Go to the bottom of the page and click on the "Lots Available" link. There you'll find a park map and picture of every lot. At the bottom of the same page there is a link for lot prices. I hope this helps.

    RV Lots The Original SKP Ranch

    Let's see if I can cover all your questions. 1. A map is still available: http://skpranch.com/lots also, there are pictures of every lot. On a computer you readily see them, on a cell phone just swipe the map picture to the right or left. 2. Yes, the current prices include improvements. 3. Self-contained means the RV must be able to hold fresh, grey and black water...no park models are authorized or grey water discharge. 4. As with any corporation, debts are paid first and then the rest distributed out to the leaseholders if it's every dissolved. Highly unlikely this would ever happen, but all corporations have this as part of their incorporation. In a Co-op, you're part "owner" which offers a better position than a landowner without infrastructure services. As an leaseholder, you have a vote on how things are run and participate in its running. If a person wants to be inactive and not participate, a Co-op if not for you. The Ranch is truly a community and we all pitch-in. Here's more reading from the website: http://skpranch.com/ranch-hands 5. A membership, according to the incorporation, "is defined as one or more adults, living in the same recreational vehicle on a continuing basis, who have entered into a membership agreement with the corporation." Hopefully, I've answered your questions. Remember, if you want to visit go to the bottom of this webpage and get the "special": http://skpranch.com/amenities

    The old park map was nice, but there's still a park map on the website--here's a link: http://skpranch.com/lots also, there are pictures of every lot. On a computer you'll readily see them and on a cell phone just swipe the map picture right or left. Take some time and peruse around the new website...there's a lot of information on it.
