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.

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.
