Disappearing Car Door

February 7, 2011

This in my opinion is one of those great ideas in concept, but in practicality is not so great.
First I have my doubts as to being safer (I could see more safety issues), but just from a mechanical aspect this is just another mechanical part to break down and unlike an electric window or door lock, this looks to be a major bug if & when this does break down.
The laughable aspect from my prospective is that they used a Ford product to which I have YET to own one that the electric windows, door locks, etc did not break down within a few years. In our case even repairs have yet to yield a complete fix and so if Ford (or maybe others too) cannot get an electric window right, what is to convince me they can get this more complicated system with more potential dangerous ramifications if and when it does fail?

I added a new post to “My Endeavors” blog about the issues I have experienced with the RV industry from a few bad apples such as Siskyou RV that give the industry as a whole a “black eye”


Siskyou RV in particular is about as good an example as to how not run a business as there can be, and in these tough economic times in particular for the RV industry.


I have had questionable service there already on more than one occasion, but this can qualified in that this was for a piece of RV equipment that was a lemon from day one that I cannot expect any RV Shop to fix it completely.


However when noting this when I finally decided to either replace this equipment (as I earlier did with the lemon of a Dash AC that also came with this rig) I was met with condescending insult after insult that finally resulting in me finally making a rude insult back (& was meant by an even ruder four letter insult back), sadly this guys boss/coworker has selective hearing and discounted all this guys previous insults up to my finally firing back after 20 minutes of verbal abuse.


He insulted & verbally abused me on several points that while he certainly was entitled to his opinion he had no right to do so (no matter how bitter a person he was):

*My desire to purchase a Class C Motor Home

*My thoughts as to writing a letter to Onan outlining my history of repairs where I meticulously followed the mechanics recommendation for repair, (even when I disagreed).

*My compliment to the reliability of my Ford 460 engine and questions as to whether or not the newer V10 was as good or better

*My troubles with RV Service centers as to keeping their appointments to repair my Generator or other issues.
