When I needed to stop my roof from leaking I first went to the most recognized name in the industry–Camping World. And once again Camping World let me down. Not only did Camping World of Mesa fail to stop my motor home roof from leaking in November when I went back in January Camping World of Mesa failed to inspect my roof. Instead, Camping World sold me a contract to repair it at a cost of $7,000 with a paltry one year warranty.
Then of all things, the representative at Camping World suggested I change insurance companies then come back with a tree branch on my roof in six months! In short, Camping World of Mesa was directing me to commit INSURANCE FRAUD!
I did sign the contract but it didn’t feel right. For so many reasons it just did not seem right. Then my RV seasoned neighbor told me Camping World was the worst and he told me about a new outfit who repaired his relative’s roof and charged half or less than Camping World and provided a warranty for life on the roof. I was also worried Camping World of Mesa was going to charge me far more than even $8,000 mentioned in November and I was going to have to rent a hotel room for more than a week. I did a little research and discovered RV Armor.
I must say I am impressed with these guys. They are honest and stand behind their work. It was indeed half or less than the cost for having Camping World of Mesa replace the membrane, and RV Armor’s warranty is head and heels over the old rubber roof standard of 10 years material and one year labor!
And I got to stay in my RV in my spot inside my RV Park saving more in hotel lodging that Camping World of Mesa would have required. Even RV Renovators across the street allows full timers to remain in their units plugged in on their lot while repairs are underway. I heard Camping World charging $12,000 and $15,000 for new roof membranes and taking half a month–a hotel expense which I could not afford while paying RV Park space rent at the same time.
It was not completely without a hitch but the RV Armor installer was honest where others would likely not be so forthcoming and RV Armor did a stand up job and exceeded my expectations. Because I am full time and comfort as well as energy expenses are important to me, I went with a white roof and I think I am getting an extra 5 degrees Fahrenheit heat rejection which means less need to run my air conditioner.
Would I do it again? Do I recommend RV Armor? Heck yeah! Don’t hesitate. I misplaced my RV Armor badge but it’s around here somewhere and when I find it it’s going on the outside above the other certifications next to my door.
For the past year and a half I have been indisposed. I had been planning to post about several sordid sides about the RV Industry but I was involved in a terrible accident that took me out of commission. In fact, I am still recovering.
There are a lot of shady characters in the RV industry and there are a few bright spots. I shall tell you the problems I have experienced as well as the good experiences I have had.
You might not think this is pertinent to you–at least not yet. But the fact is more people are turning to living in RV’s full time as a more affordable means to live.
Less than 10 years ago only 20% of new RV sales were to full timers such as myself. The average RV buyer, the 80% were buying RV’s for part time use. Today, those figures have swapped places! Now, 80% of RV purchases are by full time users who live their RV’s and only 20% are bought by the traditional RV user who uses their RV’s minimally for an occasional trip.
What this means is: Prices are up and my are they expensive! Because of a couple of giants buying up their smaller competitors and swallowing them it also means that build qualities are down. So are engineering designs. While they look nicer and have many more features, they leave the factories with all kinds of problems. The most common problem and the most serous problem is a leaky roof!
Now on a new motor home, fifth wheel, travel trailer or toy hauler one would expect a solid roof from the start but even the major brands with long standing good reputations are making junk! In my estimation from my review of on line reviews it appears RV’s made before 2010 have superior build quality.
Last summer my friends bought a brand new toy hauler. They found 19 problems right away. As I said, build quality is dismal. Be advised.
This recession will not be recognized officially any sooner than February 2020 because the inept methods our central Federal COMMUNIST Government employs. “Inflation,” which may be much more properly thought of as “the loss of purchasing power” of the FIAT Federal Reserve Dollar” or alternatively as “the amount of theft by our illustrious Banksters,” has been approximately 9-11% and will rival the past 19% under President Jimmy Carter or exceed it at 20%! This will lead to a CRASH.
Why is the CRASH or DEPRESSION inevitable? First, Federal Reserve Chairman Powell will do nothing and in fact it is he and his policies which have put the nation in the predicament we are currently in and the Depression we are facing! Jerome Powell is a stubborn Jew and he will not drop the prime rate because he does not want to give in to another stubborn Jew, President Trump! As the every least Powell will not act in time and/or will not cut the rate effectively by the 75 basis points required to correct the currently inverted bond yield curve!
Second, the Chinese are not going to make a deal with Trump. At least not one that works. The Chinese Red Communists are liars and thieves. As long as the Chinese can continue to steal American intellectual property they can keep their economy going as it is. But once they can no longer steal and deprive inventors of the royalties and license fees due them, they will have to let all of the gains, ill gotten as they as, fall aside. Moreover, the Chinese should be held accountable for all of their thefts over the decades since Nixon made one of his biggest mistakes by granting China “Most Favorable Nation” Trading status which led to the robbing & pillaging of Americans and American industry! TREASON!
This time we can expect a collapse of the US Dollar also known as the Federal Reserve Note and absolute chaos within our borders! You have never seen riots and destruction like we are going to have! Hungry people become desperate. This time next year we are going to see an entirely different America. I hope and pray we may have the wisdom and the blessing to return to Yahweh Creator Father, read our Bibles, abide by the 10 Commandments and the sheer luck needed to return to self rule under our Constitution and throw off the yoke of Esau and the Edomites!
This is really simple, we in the USA have entered another recession and the CRASH IS ALL BUT INEVITABLE! This particular recession we shall blame upon the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and the democrats. By pursuing Trump and failing to address the CRISIS AT THE BORDER as is the will of the people, it is all over–THE AMERICAN DREAM HAS ENDED1
Credit also goes to the previous Speaker of the House Paul “Rat” Ryan who literally handed over the Congress to the democrats! Truly, we need a Constitutional Congress and this is THE ONLY WAY TO AVOID CIVIL WAR and ultimately the DESTRUCTION OF THE UNITED STATES!
The United States of America will be utterly destroyed! It will take SEVEN MONTHS TO BURY THE DEAD. Then, there will be no unemployment. That is exactly what is written in the Bible. There is no Armageddon–that is another Jewish fable foisted off upon naïve Zionist Christians!
What can we do? Turn to Yahweh Creator Father fully. Obey the 10 Commandments especially the 10th Commandment to not bear false witness. But, WE CITIZENS HAVE BECOME “THE PEOPLE OF THE LIE!”
There really is nothing we can do as a people unless we READ THE BIBLE and FIND OUT WHO WE ARE! Then and only then we might be able to realize who the enemy is, the real enemy within out gates! Then we can begin the long haul of re-taking our nation via the political processes. However, be advised: The enemy has every American institution (and corporation) and all of the politicians currently in office for all practical purposes totally under their control and they will not yield one iota without a fight.
