Montana Fan== Has done the AC Mod, is still confused about winterizing, participates in tire and GVWR discussions, but only to stand his ground. May have gone to a rally or 2



Montana Master== has done the AC Mod. may be able to explain winterizing. Says here we go again when GVWR or tires are mentioned, will chime in only if the discussion seems to be waning.
Most likely has gone to a Rally and may have helped out. Rolls eyes when someone asks about removing coroplast nails, but will respond anyway

I have a suggestion, lets keep this forum simple as it was years ago when it started, we never had issues like this before, or maybe we need to give out participation trophies to certain members?

Yet the old forum had similar titles based on Post count.

Hooray. I'm a "Master"
I believe that many forums that originated via vBulletin and has used their software uses these type titles. In my case, I doubt that I ever looked at what was under my moniker - or worse, even cared! Nor still do. Oh and attending a rally to make 'Master' - not happened yet and quite possibly might not.

I have fished for over 60 years of my life with and without a RV. Does that make me a Master Baiter?

Golly, gosh, gee whiz.
3 years, 5 months, 6 days, 447 posts and I'm still not a master of anything except maybe getting folks fired up over a nonsensical post.
BTW, jeffba, I like your definitions.

Just think what you have to look forward to - a 'special' forum badge of honor. My best guess is that you need 56 more posts so get with it!!

I never even really noticed those tittles until you mentioned them I have only posted a hand full of times, I read mostly.

My family has been camping for decades and even owned an RV repair facility. I usually just watch what people post and usually at some point someone comes along with the correct response/answer so no need for me to jump in.

I never noticed this moniker before. Funny how all the “Masters” are responding...

As I am proudly wearing my "newbie" status since I have owned my fifth wheel less than a month, be prepared to laugh.

What is the AC mod? If you don't want to answer here please link me to the correct place.

You can stop rolling your eyes and laughing now.

As a "Seasoned Camper" I'm wondering what I was Seasoned with?
Life is short, make fun memories, in your camper if possible.
Don't take 'labels' seriously.

I can see a purpose for the New Member moniker. Provide solid advice not opinion, walk them through the "newbie" process, provide encouragement, etc.
As far as the rest, what's the point ?
Do they denote our RVing experience level ?
Do they denote our knowledge level in regards to Montanas ?
Are they supposed to instill in us a sense of trust for the "higher" ranks ?
The more you post, the more you know about Montanas ?

Some folks have posted numerous times a day just get the Montana Master moniker, but a lot of those posts have nothing to do with passing along Montana knowledge. Am I supposed to trust them ?

There could be folks out there who has forgotten more about Montanas than all of us will ever know about Montanas. But, because that they only post a couple times a month they are labeled a Seasoned Camper. Am I not supposed to trust them ?

What's the point ?

Ready, go !
Well my wife says I don't know jack-shizzit about RV's so what category am I in--what's below beginner camper??
