RE: Buying gas

I've used the postal code #'s with two 0's up and down the eastern seaboard for years and have never encountered one that didn't like it.

RE: Put MH on boards or not for winter

Idling the engine will do more harm than good. Shut it down and leave it alone if you're not going to drive it as exercise. The generator needs it because the gas can gum up the carb and there are parts that moisture can rust out if it sits.

RE: Florida Keys over holidays - Tow car or Not

car carriers bringing cars from up north I'm not familiar with that process. What's the advantage or reason for doing it like that? I believe a lot of the elderly use this service. Instead of doing the long drive down south, they hire a company to bring the car down and they spend only a couple of hours on a flight instead.

RE: For Canadian RV'ers crossing U.S. border

Yeah, no border enforcement with Mexico... I wonder how that would go.... About as well as it go on our northern border. Yeah, the Canadian cartels sending the US lots of drugs, I bet. They'll have a field day!

RE: Unfriendly customs officers :(

As a Canadian who travels to the US three to four times a year I find that the US border officials are professional and friendly. Coming back to Canada I find the Canadian officials are abrupt and borderline rude. I cross once or twice a month, more during camping season, and I've never had that kind of experience.

RE: Unfriendly customs officers :(

One of my Mexican buddies who is a dually, Mexican and Canadian, when he and his wife enter the U.S., they use their Canadian passports, when entering Canada, they use their Mexican passports. He shouldn't do that. If you have citizenship in a country, you are to use that country's passport to enter. Says who? There is absolutely nothing that says you have to.

RE: Unfriendly customs officers :(

Remember that everyone has a bad day every once in a while. My worst experience at the border was one time I drove across with my car, which still had the quick connect on the front. Got the usual questions from Little Napoleon border guy. Then he wondered what the bar in front was for. I answered. We then played 60,000 Questions about where we've been with the MH. After a couple of minutes (keep in mind crossings have always taken no more than 20-30 seconds for me, so I'm getting a little irked) Then he handed the Nexus cards back and asked me "Do you think you're intimidating?" I had no idea what he's talking about, so I replied "What?". He repeated the question. My reply "I don't think that being intimidating would get me that far across the border." He then pointed to my "Intimidator" decals on the car, so I replied "Earnhardt fan." He then let me go.

RE: Ice Cubes in Black Tank

Now I know he drove like an idiot, but, reality is, I know my MH bounces around a hell of a lot more than my car, or his truck, does. In addition, how big is the tank on his truck compared to the tank on a MH? I honestly don't know because I haven't seen one off a MH. When bouncing around, accelerating, stopping, if the ice has more distance to travel in the MH tank, that would cause more cleaning action upon collision with the sides of the tank. The ice didn't have much room to move in his tank.

RE: Any reason to go across the boarder in Yuma?

IMO, it's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

RE: Temporary Importation Permit TIP

Just a note, my insurance company cover north America, but not mexico.... I was under the impression that you had to buy Mexico insurance regardless of whether your insurance company covers it or not.

RE: Help determining if I can get a motorhome into my driveway

Stop overthinking it. You'll be fine. The first couple of times you might need to reposition yourself a couple of times, but after that you'll probably do it faster than with your TT.

RE: RVParkReviews.com site update - POSTPONED!

I love using RVPR. I honestly don't understand how someone can find it hard to use, but to each their own I guess. Looking forward to seeing what the upgrade brings us.

RE: For Canadian RV'ers crossing U.S. border

It is EXTREMELY rare that I'll cross the border into the US with any food at all. Might be just me, but I find groceries much less expensive in the US and, where I cross, there is a grocery store within a mile with ample parking. Coming home is another story because, whether in my MH or daily driver, I'm loaded with groceries coming back and have never had a problem. Since it's only 45 minutes away from home, we do most of our household groceries there.

RE: How do you find a place for lunch in your motorhome?

On the road, there is always sandwiches prepared and ready in the fridge. Our lunches on the road are always sandwiches and we prep them the evening prior. When it comes to supper, we'll pick a place to eat close to where we will be stopping for the night.

RE: 2015 Thor Challenger with Ford V10

Relied on rentals for one trip and one trip only. Have towed since. Despite reservations made months ahead of time, when we went to spend and tour around Orlando for 4 days, Enterprise had no car for us the first 2 days. Was quite angry and disappointed in this and will never go that route again.

RE: Getting antifreeze into the hot water side

If what you're saying is correct, it sounds like something might be wrong somewhere. The bypass valve should only be allowing the water (or antifreeze) to bypass the hot water tank, but not all the hot water plumbing to the taps. At least, that's what it sounds like you're saying. I can flip the bypass and turn the hot water taps on and the pink stuff flows to them.

RE: Renting A Car

Personally, I like the idea of waking up in the morning and, if I wanna go somewhere, I go. I don't want to have to rely on an outfit like Enterprise if that arises since I learned the hard way that you can't depend on them, even if you've made reservations months ahead of time.

RE: Generator noise under bed

BTW: If you read the Cummins/Onan warranty you will find out that the use of a third party exhaust system voids the generator's factory warranty. Adding a Genturi IS NOT using a third party exhaust system since you are not replacing any parts of the original exhaust system. It is just an add-on that re-directs the exhaust fumes.
