I hope someone is passing this thread on to CW. Apparently they don't think their bad service will hurt them...

I called Visa and cancelled the transaction and that's the last time I will ever order anything from Camping World online again.
Search Amazon for this surge protector. I can almost guarantee you'll have it by this weekend! Good luck!

Jim,
I thought the same thing you are saying. I just wonder how many other people are having major problems with camping world and not posting here or on other forums. We are just a very small group that are posting our dissatisfaction with them. There loss Amazons gain.

Might I suggest making a comment on their Facebook page....Amazing what happens when it hits the Social Media circus! Not saying all your problems will be solved but the folks that monitor FB seemed to be on the ball and do attempt to get a prompt answer to you. At least it worked for me.

They really don't care.....in case you have never seen this take a look at the few forums under "Dear Marcus"

RV.Net RV and Camping Forum ? RV, Trailer, Camper, Motorhome, Camping and Campground Information

I just don't see how that poor excuse for a company stays in business.

Not saying they care and not saying they are a great company. In fact, I can't fathom who thought it would be a good idea to change ordering systems during prime camping season....pretty darn dumb.

Just passing along a tip on how I was successful on getting my problem solved.

Being in the software business, I'll make a couple comments here. Keep in mind I'm just guessing from my own experience.

CW probably didn't plan on waiting until peak camping season to switch ordering systems, they probably planned to do it in January or February and the project ran into problems or needed changes that pushed out the date.

Then the obvious questions is when they missed their deadline why didn't they wait until after the peak time to make the switch. Without knowing what prompted the need/desire to change systems I can only guess but some of the reasons could have been:

- Government regulations or taxes or income reporting rules, etc. changed and they had to do it as soon as they could
- Some business need changed and their existing order system couldn't be modified to handle the change or would have cost more to change than it cost to replace it
- Their existing order system software was so old it was no longer supported by the publisher and they had to have new software in order to have support for it

I don't work for them and I don't have any interest in the company except that their going out of business may have effects on the RV aftermarket accessories and parts industries that would be bad for everyone.

My item is on back order too. I decided to do a search to see if anyone has experienced this and found this thread. Lol, I should have checked here first!

Your friendly site team had to do a little clean up here. There were a few posts that obviously were just made in jest, but are considered "flashpoint" items and can quickly escalate into leading a topic to blow up with off-topic and/or emotional responses.

If you notice your post missing or edited, it was due to this flashpoint subject matter.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled program.
