      Lynn Crowley Wed at 4:05 PM RVillage is having an event at The Sturgis RV Park in June. This RV Park is centrally located in the Black Hills and is convenient to all the attractions. It would be a great place to stay either before of after the FMCA Minot Rally.

      Barb & Al Packman Wed at 4:10 AM Don't forget to cover those Michelins from sunlight! Had on new coach two years old and they cracked around the rim. Michelin said sorry you did not protect them from the sun and you used tire protectant spray on them. Never again will I buy michelins.

        We just got new Michelins using the FMCA program. Savings from six tires almost paid for one of them. We ordered Magneshade tire protectors at Rally 2.0. They should be delivered today.

      Sam & Edye 12 hours ago Have you ever filed a claim? If not, why do u pay so much for the low deductible? Ask for rates with higher deductibles, like $2500... you’ll be surprised.

        Joe & Patti B Wed at 9:44 AM Thanks to everyone for their help. We got the FMCA discounted Jetpack yesterday so we’ll just see how it works for us. Seemed to have better coverage in the west where home base is. If we exceed 25g then we’ll rethink it :-). Again, thanks to all. 
    • Joe & Patti B
      Brian & Terry Wed at 9:58 AM Verizon also offers a prepaid plan with unlimited data and no throttle back.  You can have your jetpack moved to that plan and if prepaid with a credit card the cost is $65 a month.

        Joe & Patti B Wed at 10:35 AM That’s a possibility. For some odd reason, prepaid is not an option for the FMCA discounted program.

      Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) Mon at 5:45 AM And most TPMS systems today are actually TPTMS (PT = Pressure and Temperature).  The temperature feature has alerted us to brake problems on two occasions.  We would not drive our MH without such a system.
