Login Change - login with e-mail now

Tuesday as you login you will be prompted to use your e-mail address and password instead of your username and password. This change is being made for a number of reasons.

The biggest reason has to do with the forum being part of the RV Life family of sites.
Many of us have accounts at other RV Life sites, specifically RVParkReviews.com. In time you will be able to login to Forest River Forums as well as other RV Life sites where you have accounts with the same login, simplifying things substantially.
We hope to have an enhanced mobile app available as well that will allow you to read and post on multiple RV Life sites where you have registered an account if you desire, although this is not yet fully developed.

Some other reasons:
  • Username logins were case sensitive and often had punctuation that could be miskeyed or forgotten and has been a regular cause of login trouble.
  • It's easier to remember your e-mail address then username for most folks.
  • E-mail address are not visible on the forum but usernames (half of the login combo) are and so there is a little better account security.

Your username will remain unchanged and display as usual next to your posts.

If you have trouble logging in with your e-mail address instead of username there will be some prompts on the login screen to help you and a link to update your email address if needed.

Thanks in advance for your patience with these changes - we're working hard to improve security and keep the site easy to use.

Yep... I tried it this morning since it's Tuesday all day and it wasn't hot yet.


But a few minutes ago, I was presented with the new sign-in.

Janet, this change doesn't apply to the FR green app, correct?

I have a minor complaint about the new log-in, it's just a minor inconvenience. I never had to log-in as long as my computer was on and I never logged out. Many times I will have the forum open for days and refresh my browser to see the new discussions. Now I have to log in every day even when the forum has been open all night.


It's no big deal, just takes more typing to log in.
