I'm sorry if this has been answered. I tried to search the forum but couldn't locate the answer to my question.
If I have a deposited resort with 26TPU when I do a vacation search will I only see resorts with 26 or less.

I have 11 additional TPU that I can combine for a fee. If I pay and combine will I then see highter TPU exchanges or will I see all no matter what. I hope this makes sense. If not I will try to ask another way.

As always, thanks for the info.

Onemore question. What is the highest trading power a resort can have with RCI?

Note that you have to do that each time you log in. The change does not "stick".

If you combine your 26 and your 11, what you SHOULD see (without changing from the default as described above) is everything up to 37 TPU. Due to a bug on RCI, it might or might not work that way.

With 26 TPU, you should see about 95% of deposits. With 37 TPU, you should see about 99.5% of deposits. So there will be very little difference in what you see (but those additional deposits will be much more desirable locations and weeks).

The highest deposits are 60 TPU, and there are very few of those.

The best thing to do is to change the search to show all, as described above by Denise.
