RE: Clean water

We buy water for drinking and for hot tea. (Canadians need there hot tea)We have a number of 1 gallon jugs that we refill at the machines at Walmart or grocery stores. Much less expensive and not all the garbage. In the RGV we refill our jug for 15 cents at HEB supermarkets.

RE: Returning From the Snowbird Season

I think it depends on when you head for home. If you leave on March 1st, or even April 1st, the weather is probably not that conducive to spending time in between the sun and home. I know we sure want to stay in the sun later than we have been doing. We always fight the weather on the way home and then at home to boot. Got to come up with way to deal with our tax returns while snowbirding. Tax returns and out of province health insurance is what sets our dead line. It sure would be nice to be able to wait for good weather.

Things to do GA

We are attending the FCRV rally in Perry GA March 17-20 on our way back home to ON from the RGV. We have about two weeks to make our way to Lima OH to visit family there before we go home. Can any of you give us ideas of things to see or do along the way?

RE: Any sites available where you are at in lower TX?

We checked out a number of parks in the mid valley and they all have spaces available. They all were offering some sort of special.

RE: Doing the final things before hitting the Road South

The seems to be a trend here, my DW will also not go before Christmas. I have been trying to sell the idea of going early then flying home for Christmas. She says I would do that one year and then not want do it anymore. She knows how much I hate cold and snow. This year our DD and her family who live in OH and could not come home to Ontario for Christmas. So we are planing to leave to go there for New Years and then leave from there for the RGV. That all depends on getting the coach out of storage after to-days freezing rain. Our other DD and Husband and our Son are driving down as well then driving back to ON. Do you get the picture why I would like to go early.

RE: First time to winter in Texas or other lower states

We are going back to the Rio Grande Valley of TX again this year. We were to AZ last year and have also been to FL a number of times. We have enjoyed each of those but find our selves going back to deep South Texas.

RE: Dealers not wanting to do warranty work.

I have had warranty work done on my Georgetown a Forest River product by three different dealers. First the selling dealer who tried to do as little as possible and when they got around to it. Next Ron Hoover RV in the RGV at the request of Forest River came out to the RV Park we were in with a set of new batteries after a defective coach battery blow up. The following year at Lazy Days in Tucson they installed a support on the water heater at the authorization of Forest River even though it was out of warranty. They also got permission from Dometic to replace noisy fans on our fridge. Do those dealers have a better relationship with the manufacturer or do they also have to wait.

RE: Advise for a 100k budget

If you want to get some information from Georgetown owners look at forestriverforms.com We have a Georgetown 378 and almost all the problems we have had have been with products made by suppliers that most of the other manufacturers also use. Forest River looked after everything under warranty after I took it to the factory. Making sure you have a good dealer is very important. I have gone through the plant and was impressed with the way they are built. The bottom line for us was that DW liked floor plan. I would by an other Georgetown but from an other dealer.

RE: Unexplained but true happenings

Back in the early 60s when I was just a kid two other fellows and I left Ontario in my car with a tent and a gas stove. We followed rt66 to the west coast. Some where in TX or NM in the middle of nowhere our car overheated. We could not see anything in any direction except something square in the field way back from the fence. It turned out to be a water trough with water in it. We got water from it put in the radiator and were good to go. We had not seen any buildings or even cattle in the parched fields. I think someone was looking after those kids. We made it to west coast then followed the coast to Seattle for the world's fair. We went on over to Vancouver Island then back across Canada to our home. Do you think that trip caused my itchy feet.

RE: Feel lucky to be snowbird

Make sure you get this weather thing sorted out by January 1. We will be leaving for the RGV then. I have never been able to get the DW to go south before the holidays. This year we did get away to Cancun MX on Nov.30 and fly home Dec.14. I have been trying to tell her we could go south with the RV in Nov. then fly home for the holidays. She just tells me that i would only agree to that one year and then would not want to fly home anymore. I do hate snow and cold.

RE: Good Sam Swipe and Save vs. Pilot/Flying J RV rewards

I like the RV PLUS charge card because I can pull in swipe my card enter my code and pump as much gas as I need. As a Canadian in the USA many places the pump will not start with out a ZIP code and will not take my postal code. So I have to go in or have my DW take my card in and stand there while I fill the tank if I'm lucky. If not it may shut of at $75 or $100. Some will scan the card again some will not. At the end of the month FlyingJ send me an email with my bill and the following week they debit my bank account for that bill. The fuel discount is nice to.

RE: Safety issues in Southern Texas and Mexico border

This is our 10th Winter in the Valley, Never felt unsafe, we go out at night at will and even hit a few local bars. Maybe what some people fear is being a minority or not speaking Spanish? We also have gone to the RGV many years and I have never felt unsafe. We go out at night when we want to. I'm sure there are places I would not feel comfortable but that is true most places. We enjoy the Spanish cultural in the valley and can hardly wait to get back.

Thanks that would be nice. Paul

RE: So who's in the class of 2013/14?

Now officially on our way to the RGV. Left a cold, wet Ontario this morning and are now just out of Chicago where we are staying for the night. Have a safe trip. We will be coming your way in the new year make sure you get the weather nice and warm. Have you got reservations? I'm planning on finding a park when we get there. We have always made reservations but want to try a new park this year. We have a nice small place at Sun N Fun in San Benito. Lots of activities and great people. Should give it a look. At one time I know two fellows from Sun and Fun and they liked it there. We have friends in the center valley and want to be further west.

RE: Zip code required at Loves

and the feeling is that it won't happen on a global basis. It happened in Canada and Mexico and most (if not all) of Europe and a few contries I visited in South America over the last few years. No doubt the current ''chip'' technology will, one day, be replaced by something newer and better but the way you're saying it, the U.S. will always be ''one technology'' behind... That is kind of what I told many when I was down south working with the banking and software people. Sounds like the cost outweighs the benefits at least in the industry. I think the chip conversion issues go beyond cost benefit. Chipped cards can move the liability for abuses from the credit card issuer to the card user as the card user is responsible for maintaining the secrecy of the PIN. Actually we no longer use a PIN in many places, just flash the card with the chip technology today. Removing or disabling the use of a PIN from a chip card is like removing the Jelly from a PB&J Sandwich. It just doesn't make sense. According to my bank chip cards have three fundamental advantages as follows: A chip card is a debit or credit card with a built-in microchip that provides greater security and convenience. The microchip is encrypted, which means that it is extremely difficult to copy or counterfeit and cardholders are required to enter their Personal Identification Number (PIN) for all chip card transactions. Chip card transactions also provide enhanced security because your card never leaves your sight. wrong in so many ways .. Tap and go is limited to about $50 ... if you need more, you have to use a chip reader in Canada. In the USA they still take the cARD AND RUN IT ... IT'S OUT OF YOUR HANDS. The pin is not used outside of Canada ,,, The pin is used in much of the rest of the world. Two years ago we were in a tour group in Scandinavia as we went from one country to the other some people did not get the currency for the country we were in. They were planning to use there credit cards. The ones from USA had to get the Canadians to pay for them because they would not take the cards with out a chip.

RE: Zip code required at Loves

I can verify that the numbers in the postal code in the order that they appear in your postal code followed by 2 zeros works every time. No need to go inside to get a cashier to swipe your card. I have been using the number system for many years now at fuel stations, but it is odd that it don't work in some retail outlets i.e Harbour Freight. I did the three + two 0s for a number of years but it has not worked for me in the last year or so. Now that my TD debit card has the Visa symbol on it I use it. They also do not add the two and a half percent up charge that most of the credit cards do.

RE: Alternatives to South Florida in Winter

We are going back to TX again this year. We have been to FL AZ and MX by RV as well. We love MX but it is much further for us and the RGV gives us some of Spanish cultural closer to home. It also nice to see the signs (welcome back winter Texans)
