This is my second time renting through RV share and I am an experienced camper.
Our trip renting from Gene and Valerie started out a bit odd. We requested the RV a day early and they agreed for a cash consideration… It was eventually negotiated that I should pick it up by 7 AM to accommodate Gene’s work schedule. I showed up to a motor home that had been rented out to a couple of young men. They had not provided the security deposit nor any insurance. They had scraped down both sides and dented the cargo compartments. There was a tree branch stuck in the side wall of the motor home and the awning braces were badly dented and racked. Both the grey and black water was completely full and the propane was empty. It was low on fuel and Valerie had just finished steam cleaning the carpets for the second time. Gene had hung a TV in the front of the rig… I took it in stride and used the opportunity to drive, fuel and dump the rig with the owner along to insure I could handle his RV.
All went well for the first couple days of the trip. Gene was texting me daily to make sure things were OK. When we went to start the generator on the third day and get on the road, it would not run. Our route took us through the central valley of California and it was 106* with no AC. It was a very miserable day… I spent the next day in the Lake Tahoe area with a local friend removing the generator and getting it repaired in Reno and re installing it. My family had fun and I put in a day of work on a rental RV… The generator worked great in the following days through Nevada to the Grand Canyon and into the hills of Arizona. We made our way to Lake Powell and were thankful for the AC. (The unit runs off of propane.) During the night, the water pump kept cycling, I assumed that the check valve was allowing pressure to leak back and it would run for ten seconds every ten minutes or so. What was actually going on, was the water heater had started leaking. We were heating water and pouring it in the desert. The grateful desert drank it up and left no trace. It did burn up all of the propane that the generator was using to make electricity, though. I discovered this bright and early the next morning. We abandon plans for a morning swim and hurried to dump the tanks and get to a propane supplier. The generator ran out of fuel about 10 minutes later while we were dumping fuel and filling water. (This particular Onan must run to cool and must cool to preserve the function of its voltage regulator, so I was in a hurry to get propane.) Just as we prepared to pull out of the dump station, the main airline that de activates the parking brake melted on the side of the generator housing and the brakes were locked on. In my career, I have worked for years as a marine engineer and am currently a Captain of a tug and barge in Alaska. I grew up driving semi-trucks, log trucks and dump trucks. I worked as an auto mechanic in the town of Truckee, California (…these connections allowed me to repair the generator in that town days before). Had I not had the experience to draw upon and an extensive tool kit packed with me, this RV would have been stuck blocking the RV dump site at Wahweap campground. The nearest tow would have to come from Kanab ($195/hr. x 5 hr.) and a mobile repair would be $150 call out and $125/hour door to door from their shop… It took me about 30 minutes to locate and fix the problem. I was covered with dirt and starting a day’s travel… We got to the propane station and re-started the generator, (thanks be to the Lord above…) The temperature was climbing out of the 80’s and it was going to crack 100 again… About two hours later the generator died again. I guess it did not take the sudden outage well after all.
We continued our trip sweating all day in the RV while travelling and then insuring we had a 50 amp service each night so we could cool things off enough to sleep. It forced us to stay in RV parks that we would not have chosen had we been able to pursue our original route. We were often in long term parks with dirty, sour, dubious, neighbors, but with a solid plug in and blessed Air Conditioning. We all had to be conditioned to only turn on the water heater when we needed water and plan 15-20 minutes a head so it could heat up. When we were travelling we constantly had to turn the pressure pump on and remember to turn it off, lest the water tank be pumped out through the leaking water heater. One day the TV that was mounted above the driver fell off while we were on the highway. There were some tense moments getting to the shoulder, but no one was hurt. The ice maker connection leaked and put out the refrigerator pilot, (I followed the dripping water and fixed the leak before we lost our food…)
We cut our trip short and returned the RV to Gene and Valerie three days early. (We had originally rented for two weeks plus the early pick up.) My family was worn out with all of the quirks and rules I was imposing. They did not like the parks we were staying in. The fun was going out of the trip.
I gave Gene a thorough run down of all of the problems and made suggestions on how to improve function. I remounted the TV securely. I showed him why the leveling jacks were binding up. I took care of his RV as if it was my own and returned it cleaner than I got it.
Gene said that he had no mechanism for refunding unused days (I did not mention the cash I had given him to pick it up a day early…) He suggested that he only charge me $200 for over mileage costs instead of the $381.60 that was calculated after I filled the rig with propane from empty. I suggested that I get my entire $500 deposit back in light of the failures of the mechanicals of the RV and our early return. (Not to mention the work I personally put in to mechanical repairs…) We failed to agree and I told him to do what he felt was right as he had control of the deposit money through RV Share any way.
What he felt was fair was to charge me the full amount of the mileage charge ($381.60) and continue to correspond with me about the RV. I guess Gene felt that he had undercharged me for the rental and was going to grasp all of the money he could legally do from me. He had been screwed by the previous renter and had a torn up RV to fix. The generator was broken again (I did suggest a design improvement that may fix the problem…) But he was not going to consider letting go of any ready monies, even to the extent he had originally proposed as a fair settlement.
I was the second renter for this unit and the first who knew how to operate an RV. I would not suggest you rent this unit without a mechanic on call and a promise of weather below 80 degrees. Gene and Valerie just bought this unit and put it on the market. I got to work out a bunch of bugs and pay for the privilege. They are very lucky we did not leave the thing sitting in the RV dump on the southern border of Utah and fly home.
