I hope to have him again, especially after some of the plans I've been reading on the other threads.

Exterior Detailing Techniques

Have had several poeple asked me about what to use on maintaining the exterior of there RV's. There are hundreds of products on the market today and finding one line that does everything well can sometimes be a expensive. We take a lot of pride the way our rigs look when we hit the road...would be glad to share what I have...

Wow - some great ideas!

I'm setting up a poll to get your ideas on some of the items that you might like to see. These topics are only a starting point, so please feel free to leave comments suggesting others. You may vote for more than one topic.

If you have an area of expertise and would like to lead a discussion that would be great. For example, a professional photographer in the group has offered to lead a seminar on photography tips.

As with the "Traveling Together to Goshen" thread, please keep it relatively serious so that we can get some good suggestions to make the rally as good as it can be. We can't guarantee that we'll be able to do everything, but we'll do our best.


These are great subjects/interests - hoping to see them all at the rally, they will make great seminar topics.

One that we would like to see would be on stablizing, and not just from the "sellers" or "manufacturers" point of view. Would like to find out what people are using and what they have found to work and not work and maybe even instruction on how to put some on? (IE: side, 5th wheel pin, automatic, add-ons, etc)

Another we would like to attend would be Mor/ryde's talk. Last year we sat through it and the people who were giving it totally got blasted by the audience about issues that they had with the products. All the time alloted was spent trying to calm the audience down that there was no time for discussing actual parts/services that they offer.

Thanks again for setting all these events up. Looking forward to attending!

More on tours

Thanks for the tour info and it looks like others are interested also. I did notice that all of the products you mentioned are towables and wondered if motorhomes were left off the list intentionally or just by omission. I'm specifically interested in motorhomes and hope there will be an opportunity to visit plants where they are made?

goshen frog rally

Talked to the husband about it today. Told him how fun it would be, nicely packaged with meals, tours, lectures, repair. Not too far from us, etc.

The husband voted it down because we are seasonal and pulling off means re-leveling on the blocks, etc., etc., ....Whatever!!!! LOL

Can we come in a tent if we show proof of ownership of a FR product? We own a 2006 Cherokee 30f. I'm not too spoiled I can't tent camp now and then.
