Hey guy's, lets remember, we were all young/inexperienced, and didn't always have all the answers. We have a lot of new members joining the forum. Lets give them a respectful answer when they ask a question. If they knew the answer, they wouldn't have asked the question, and lets face it, we aren't always right either. Nobody likes to be made out to look stupid. So a respectful answer will hopefully keep these new forum members around, asking questions and contributing to the forum, and keeping things interesting, and the forum going.

I agree. Exactly! Remember the first camper you purchased? We have to start somewhere. The only stupid question is the one you don't ask. Good job Farmer for speaking out for the newbies.

I agree Old Farmer and Deputydog. We were all newbies at one time looking for help with a problem. No one should be embarresed to ask a question, no matter how trival someone else might think it is. To that person, it is something he is having a problem with and is seeking advice.

What a great post! I traveled WI on business for 35 years and you are a perfect example of how kind and considerate Upper Midwestern people are.

Great Post!!

It is for these very reasons that we seldom visit here any longer.
Where we are now STAFF members step in.

Thanks so much Old Farmer. Although I will soon be on Medicare and have a wealth of knowledge about business, finance and computers, I know absolutely nothing about camping. My wife and I just purchased our first Cruiser, a CT28RKX, and we will be heading somewhere around WI to "get our feet wet"and I'm sure my first back-in will not be perfect and that I will be jockeying quite a bit. I understand that those around me will smile and chuckle a bit, but in good humor, remembering when they were greenhorns too. I remember the most important thing I used to say to co-workers when they asked me computer questions..."the old dumb question is the one you don't ask." I am humble and secure enough in my manhood to be able to ask whatever I need to on this site, and know that people like you are there to help me. I hope someday if you are around Beaver Dam or I am around wherever you may be that we can meet someday and I can thank you properly. Thanks for all you do sir.

I like this place, because of Lloyd and the rest of you. We bought our first 5th wheel only about a year ago (a Cruiser). Prior to that I was asking many questions on this site and a few other ones. I'd a had a pretty hard time making a decision about which trailer to get if many people hadn't taken the time to answer many of my 'beginners' type questions. This site and the people who populate it are invaluable to 'anyone' who has a question.



This place has always seemed friendly to me and I sure hope it stays that way.



Take care, Greg

I always liked to think RVer's were some of the friendliest people. We have a common interest, it's that home on wheels that has all of the problems of a house, a vehicle, and problems arising due to the combination of the two. More often than not a neighboring camper will help me back in a site when I am on the road alone, I never worried about being left on my own. And when we chuckle at those of you newbies backing that 30+ footer, that you only maneuver 4 or 5 times a year (no chance to really master backing and most every site is different) even though you'd like more opportunities, we are chuckling at ourselves as well remembering our first season. Been RVing 12 years now, I still got questions, I learned enough the "hard way!" I'd rather learn from YOUR mistakes And I'll gladly let you in on mine.

Don't feel bad Mark. I generally celebrate if I get backed in on the second or third try. Our TT always seemed so easy compared to the 5'er.

Yep backing in is a never ending story, I might do ten in a row perfect but the very next one will make me very humble
