RE: cell reception options

We have been using Skype for 5 years or more. You do need good wifi and you need to set up account and put in ten or fifteen dollars to call a phone numbers. That cash stays in your account until it's used up. We have never used up the full deposit in three to four months of calling back to Canada. It only costs a few penny per minute. Check out there website.

RE: Golf

THanks Lynndiwagon,The reviews for Lazy Palms Ranch rv resort in Edinburg are not that good is there a reason for that,we maybe headed that way. We stayed at Lazy Palms some years ago. Nice big sites (lots of burs). The address is Edinburg but is almost 20 miles north of the town. If you stay there be prepared to drive a long way for everything.

RE: Canadian Using Wind Phone

I only need USA roaming for 4-5 months per year. Does WIND allow you to suspend or cancel for the other months? Couldn't find that in the FAQ. Yes you only added it for when you need it according to there representative. I need to get it turned on as we plan to leave on January 3. I will know better after we try but we do have an unlocked Black Berry Z30 so can switch if we are not happy.

RE: Canadian Using Wind Phone

Used all the way down to Florida. No problems. Made long distance calls home and no extra charge. I even tethered my phone to iPad for wifi without extra charge. That's great I hope mine will work as well in South Texas. Thanks for getting back so quickly. It looks like it may be the answer for cell in US for Canadians.

RE: Canadian Using Wind Phone

I switched to Wind from Rodgers. I'm paying the same price as with Rodgers but getting wide open unlimited US. I'm a happy camper. :) What part of the USA have you used it? I have just switched from Solo Mobile (owned by bell) to Wind. I had good coverage in the USA but at $1.45 a min. I did not like to use it. I have bought an unlocked phone so if it is not satisfactory I will just get an other sim card. We have made our calls home to Canada on Skype.

Canadian Using Wind Phone

Wind Mobile is offering a unlimited USA plan for $15.00 on top of your Canadian plan. Has anyone on here tried it. Check there web site it looks good.

RE: Leveling Jacks Popping and Creaking

In my case they only put in one half a quart and there was room for that in the tank.

RE: Getting an American Visa Credit Card

We have a TD USA $ visa card that seems to work well and we save the 2 + percent charge. It is no charge because we have a Borderless Plan account with TD and as long as we keep a minimum amount in the account it is no charge. It also gives us the opportunity write US$ cheques on that account.

RE: Leveling Jacks Popping and Creaking

This was an interesting post....I've never heard or read about this before, especially on here. Is the coach actually moving while you're walking around and the noise occurs, or is it happening when just sitting there. My previous Monaco had a front jack that would occasionally fall about a 1/4" and really bang. In mine the jacks were not moving down at all. There was just a loud popping sound. I was at the Frog (Forest River Owners Group) rally in Goshen IN last and sat in on a Lippert seminar where they were talking about there products. The introduced the man that had done the development on there levelling jacks. So I went up to him after the presentation was over and asked him about popping jacks. He told me that Cat had discovered a fix for the problem that he had a long name for. He then sent one of there men down and he added a half quart of the Cat additive to our tank and it slowly got better. Now on the Lippert web site the have detailed instructions on the procedures on how to install it.

RE: Leveling Jacks Popping and Creaking

I have also added the Cat additive to my lippert jacks and it is almost 100% better.

RE: Exploding coach battery!

I had a coach battery blowup when our coach was no more than six months old. I called Forest River manufacture. There warrenty department manager told me to thoroughly wash down the battery compartment. He then had A dealer bring out A pair of new batteries and had them check out the converter/ charger to be sure it was not overcharging. We also stopped in at the factory Service Center on our way Home from Texas that spring. They checked out the charger and also found out it was okay. They then decided it must have been A defective battery. The coach is now three and a half years old with the same batteries and they are fine.

RE: Transmission changes on the 2015 Honda CRV

I just been doing some reading on the Internet and from what I see there it's only the Japanese CRV that's getting the CVT transmission. The information that I got was 2015 in North America still has a five speed transmission.

RE: Slide Opening and Closing

I had that problem with a fifth wheel it would equalize but it ended up braking a stud in the wall. I took it to a repair shop suggested by the manufacturer. They told me that one cylinder needed to be rebuilt. I was able to remove some paneling on the inside and replaced the 2x2 stud with a 2x4 on its side reinforced with an angle iron. While I was working on it a fellow came along and wanted to buy the FW and I told him I needed to fix the cylinder and he said "I can fix anything". We agreed on a cash price and I took it to his site. And I never saw it again.

RE: Regarding the use of a portable Printer

I have a Samsung ML2010 laser printer that we have carried in our RV for a number of years as Snowbirds. Last year we bought a new Mac book pro and have found out that there is no driver available for the software in the new computer. We do not leave to go south until after Christmas and the temperature is way below freezing. We may stay in a hotel for the first night or two so I'm afraid to replace it with a inkjet printer as the ink would freeze. We have seldom used the printer but it was nice to have it. Last winter I needed to print a document and I had to email it to an office store get them to print it then sign it and mail it back. It would have been nice to have the printer.

RE: Currency exchange for Canadian Snowbirds

We just returned from to US and I was able to use the postal code #s + 00 with a TD bank US $ visa card. For the last few years I have not been able to do the 00 thing with our Canadian Master Card. I hope this keeps working.
