A Valuable Lesson Learned about Post's
Last week I placed a post concerning copies of JT Stabilizers. When one makes a post on the Internet, they should look beyond the moment and see what impact the post could have down the road. They should realize that thousands of eyes may see that post, so one should be sure and have all the I’s dotted and T’s crossed. I may not have accomplished this important detail … for that I apologize to Plug It Right. The reason for my post was two fold. One … I found it suspect that two separate companies at one time seemingly business associates have since marketed very similar products of which one company holds patents. Two … I was concerned for fellow RV’ers who might buy the lesser priced product and be with out product support if company B should have to suspend production. I’d like to respond to Plug It Right’s post.
This reply is to the posts started by dieselguy:
1. My company, Plug It Right, is not in breach of any contract.
2. If there is a patent, please provide a patent number.
3. I have not been informed of any legal procedure.
4. PIR [Plug It Right]offers a quality product at a reasonable price
5. My company offers both front or front and rear stabilizers.
6. My business is neither immoral, corrupt or foreign.
7. My product is made in the USA
I hope this forum permits me to defend myself and my company.
In answer to questions put forth by Diana
1. After looking over my correspondence with JTRV, I should have stated “a dealer agreement was breached”.
2. Patent numbers and information on such can be provided by calling 530-347-3637.
3. I believe I stated “pending”. Again looking over my correspondence I should have stated “with our patent numbers, they are about to be in double jeopardy with us.”
4. No mention of the quality of any of your products … just lesser price tag on the stabilizers.
5. No mention
6. Concerning many of us (me included) sometimes buying the cheaper priced product available, then griping about it made overseas. I was generalizing in referring to the trend of the manufacturing going overseas … I did not intend to refer which of you made what in or out of country. I made no mention of your other adjectives.
7. For this I applaud your company.
Diana, as you can see from the posts here, my meddling may have brought more hits to your website than you ever would have wished for with many standing with you. The cards have been dealt … let’s see how the hand plays out. To the MOC members … I’ve learned a valuable lesson here and hope I can still put in my 2 cents from time to time on anything other than business advice. Dieselguy …
