Default Hay Bushpilot, how about this for a deleted post:

So, I almost never go on rv.net. But, the other day I saw somebody had started a thread asking about a Super C built on a Volvo chassis. Here's the thread: RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Class C Motorhomes: Haulmark Super C

So I decided to make this post:

Posted: 05/16/15 02:25pm Link | Quote | Edit | Print | Notify Moderator
I don't think I've ever seen a "Super C" Volvo chassis. I've seen plenty of "Truck Conversions" built on Volvo heavy duty truck (Class 7/8) chassis.

'03 United Specialties truck conversion built on Freightliner FL112 chassis, Cat C-12 motor, 10 speed autoshift, 430h/p, 1650 torque, love the truck conversion.

I have had problems with the moderators over there deleting my posts without any explanation. So, I checked back on that thread and my post is gone! I had copied that text and sent it to myself to preserve it since I was guessing the moderator would delete it. How do you think that post is a violation deserving deletion? I think I'll call that rotten jerk marcus lemonis and give him a piece of my mind. Ya right. Bunch of rotten jerks over there. Just thought you guys here should see how they treat anybody that mentions the words "Truck Conversion" over there.

And why I almost never go there. They are a bunch of hating jerks on Truck Conversions. I sent a private message to the C moderator, ronfisherman, asking what I did wrong and why my post was deleted. Here is his lying response:

On RV.NET we do not have a Conversion forum. So they all go under the Super C forum. Your statement was questioning where it belongs on RV.NET.

Ronfisherman.


Really!? I wasn't questioning anything. I was simply clarifying that I don't think Volvo has a Super C chassis. Clearly ronfisherman, and all the rest of them over there, don't accept that a Truck Conversion is different than a Super C. One more reason to change channels when that jerk marcus lemonis comes on with his crappy tv show. I guess I shouldn't say it's a crappy show since I have never, and would never, watch it since he hates Truck Conversions. He is the owner of rv.net in case anybody missed that.

Maybe they should check wikipedia for recreational vehicle descriptions:

couple of full timers that are moderators from what i can tell & they get pretty picky about
posts that counter their opinions or experiences.

they were talking about buying base plates (for a toad) the other day - and one of the moderators was against it because the mfg didnt sell them or warranty them - i replied -

of course not, because they don't make money selling used parts....he deleted my post !

Oh, burst my bubble.......I was going to make one into the best fifth wheel toter ever

Bob, funny thing is you never questioned which forum it should be in. Some guys ____ are so small they get offended quickly. A good mod would not get bent out of shape, move it or leave it. Deleting a post is rarely justified. Usually a little editing, at the most, does the trick.

Glass to see this place is not only civil, but everyone has on their big boy panties B-)

I have tried to "assist" others there too, but unfortunately my experience is the same as others........ As a forum owner I can't understand the mentality there......

How about on another RV forum where one person tries to portray themselves as a commercial driver and claims the reason you can't idle the newer diesel engines is because there is not enough oil flow and the turbo will be run dry....
