Thumbs up Forum Impressions

Just thought I'd make a comment on the "community" here. I've only been here a couple of months, but I sense a friendlier group than on another RV forum that I've been a member of since '04. To me this group seems more laid back & not as uptight as on the other .net (I'll let you fill in the blanks). Also, on the other forum, I've posted questions & never gotten a reply whereas here I usually have gotten a couple of answers the 1st day.

Questions are quickly replied to & I haven't noticed any threads that have degenerated into bad situations. Also, I haven't noticed what I would call "over-moderation". I'm a moderator on a snowmobiling forum and know that you have to give some leeway on matters. Too much modding & it drives people away & too little & things "go south" pretty quickly.

(Question to the mods/admin: Do find yourself busy moderating the site or do the members have a good handle of what is or isn't allowed?).

Yes I've been RVing since '05 with a popup, but this year w/ the new TT, it's almost like I'm back to square 1. A lot more "systems" to deal w/ in a 21' TT than a 8' popup .

If I meet up w/ anyone who owns a FR RV, I'll be sure to mention the forum to them.

revrnd,

Thanks for the comments. We appreciate them.

I feel most members are pretty well versed on the rules of the forums and do a good job at posting. We do get a few spammers now and then, but usually take care of there post in a timely manor. Some members watch for unusual postings and repost them to us, so they can be dealt with. This helps a bunch and I'd like to thank those members for keeping a watchful eye on thing.

I have to agree with you Revrnd. I too gave up on that other .net RV forum about 4 years ago when I realized that I had never seen a bunch of guys spewing so much misinformation about subjects they knew absolutely nothing about. I realized right then that if they were so wiling to deteriorate into a flaming war over a subject they were all totally ignorant about, how could I trust any of the other information to be correct.

There is a great wealth of knowledge here and a lot of friendly people. Although in the past we have seen the occasional person join who obviously was not here to help but just to rant about their "crappy FR product" and "I will never own another FR product" which begged the question, 'Why did you join this group then' and usually their tenure here has been very short lived.

No product is perfect and neither is any forum group, but this one is about the best forum I have ever had the pleasure to be on.

100% agree FRF is a very people friendly forum. Everyone involved in each posting has good helpful information to share. The posting of modifications and other diagrams gives a better understanding to those looking for help. One of my favorite parts has to be helping NWJeeper spend money. It's my calling!!!

I have to say your dang good at that too Charlie. Thinking of adding another one of those blasted lights on the passenger side of my rig near the front. The slide on that side blocks the other lights from reaching that area. Hmmppfff.

I finally found a black door holder to replace that awful white one that FR put on mine. Paid all that money for the full body paint and they used a white door holder. Camping World @ Myrtle Beach had them. Now it looks 100% better. Bet you want one now don't you?
I was surprised when I removed it, it has Forest River molded into the plastic.

Thanks everyone. We have tried to make this forum as user friendly as possible and will continue to work towards that. Our new management team has done a lot of hard work into making it even better. Kudos to Janet and Andy on jobs well done.

revrnd, you're preaching to the choir.
I've had my share of problems with my TT and my towing situation wasn't very good either.
The people on this form graciously "educated" me. I now have a TT I can enjoy and towing it wherever I want is no problem.
Not once have I ever felt like I was looked down upon because of my ignorance.

I don't have one Charlie, ours has the gas strut to keep the door from hitting the curb side slide when it opens. Gonna have to try harder. My next project is replacing the flush valve on the toilet with the vacuum breaker style with the output for the hand sprayer. Ours didn't come with one and it would work better for dry camping.

Hey something else we do great here on this forum... Hijack threads. ARGGGG......

X2 revrnd. That's what keeps me coming back here. I don't have that many answers or questions and some time it sees like I'm just being nosey and reading other people's mail but I genuinely enjoy it here. Besides, just because we don't ask questions doesn't mean we haven't picked up lots of good tips from others. Thanks to the owners and moderators of this site. As Tony the Tiger would say it is a GREAAAAAT site. Old Guys

OUCH! Thought I had you. The two toilets in mine don't have the spray either. Have a great Holiday weekend!!!

I belong to and have belonged to many forums related to my interests, but FRF is BY FAR, the best forum I do belong or have belonged to. This group has made our upgrade to a TT from a PUP so easy and fun. I am a "tinkerer" and have some many beneficial things to "tinker on". Not only that, the amount of money saved by members sharing things that have worked and things that haven't. This forum feels more like a family group. I know when the day comes that I run into a fellow FRF member, it will be great fun. To any new members or perspective members, you will probably be like I am, I check FRF more than I check my social networking site.
