Time to sell our RV

After 10 yrs of stress while pulling this camper down the road I've reached the end. I simply cannot find quality work or material to allow me to keep this thing. Short story for this month. Took the RV to the RV repair shop to have them repacked the wheel bearings and replace the lp gas line. After 400 mile a tire comes off the camper on the West Virginia turnpike. Broke all 6 studs. Called an RV dealer and asked for a service cal to repair it. Nope, didn't want to trave 25 miles. Called a tow company, they said they can fix it. That was at 4 pm yesterday. He came , took the hub and got the wrong studs twice. At 9 pm he told me we were out of luck until 7 am when the RV store opened. I asked why he didn't go there to start with being that the RV was being repaired ! It's now just after 7 am as me and my family still sit atop this mountain in West Virginia and no good luck in sight. Yeah, I'm too old for this stress.

Wow that really is to bad about the tire and having to wait so long, good thing you had the camper to wait in. Everyone has to make that decision at some time as a rule I try not to make important decisions when I'm upset or had to many gin and tonics. Good luck I hope things work out for you

When the hassle and stress outweighs the fun and pleasure of owning/using your RV, it's time to hang it up for sure. Sorry to hear it's arrived for you, good luck!!!

Sorry to hear of your very bad luck. At least you had a nice place to stay. Be thankful you were not traveling by air and had that kind of luck.

When bad stuff like that happens, it just makes the good stuff more appreciated. We don't know what good is unless some bad happens.

Sorry to hear you are finished. I get near that point sometimes. One thing I learned on this latest trip. From now on I will take the rig to a specialist. I needed some wheel work done this time out and instead of a dealer I went to a break shop and they did great work. Because that is ALL they do. I know you have to bring it to the dealer sometimes but if I can avoid I will.

Again, sorry for your troubles

Mine is parked permanently in a campground in Western MA. I'll be back June-October every year as long as I can bring my motorcycle from Florida. Nice summer campground in the Berkshires. I'm lovin' it. When I can't drive it anymore, I'll leave a car here, (neighbor does) and fly into Albany.

Sorry to hear of your issues. Ya may be time to depart the RV world. BTW for all folks that take your campers in for this type of service make sure you check your lugs after they complete there work & tire pressure. Just a heads up. Later RJD
