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.

RE: looking for a toad

We are happy with our Honda fit. It is automatic and you will be surprised at all the space inside. I'm sorry that the automatic 2015 will no longer be be towable. Our 2008 is still going strong and is totally trouble free. The instructions for RV towing are right in the owners manual. I think it is a good idea when you hook up the lights to put in a charge line to keep the battery charged up.

RE: Honda Fit Tires

We have a 2008 Fit that we bought used three years ago. It had new BFG tiger paws on it when we got it and has been towed over 20,000 miles plus driven over 15,000 miles and the tires do not show a lot of wear. It has been towed from Ontario to the RGV twice and Tucson AZ once as well OH and IN several times. Also to Quebec City , PEI and around the Gaspe Peninsula. Do they have a towd break that is coming on when it shouldn't. The Fit is light so it would not be hard to pull even if the breaks are partly on.

RE: FMCA Memebership ?

I joined FMC when we switched from fifth wheel to a motorcoach and I was looking for information on what car we could use as a toad. Read the magazine and this year on our way home from Texas went to the big rally in Perry GA. We have now joined a chapter and have registered for an other regional rally. At the rally the new president announced that they had a net gain in membership in the recent past.

RE: Canadians who had to use Travel Insurance this Past Winter

DW used it one time in twenty years as snow birds. The hospital billed the insurance company but when we got home we got a bill from the MD. We turned that in to the insurance company and they paid the bill. We will not cross the border with out out of province health insurance. We have known people that were presented with very large bills from US health providers. Our DD and family live in the USA and when we see what they play even after there insurance we are not willing to the chance. We work with a broker that that has a number of companies that they work with and have a good reputation for service.

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.
