RE: Crippling insurance costs

is this out of country health insurance? yes, but the other 8 months you get "free" health care. bumpyNice if it was free.lol.as everyone knows nothing is free.It is paid out of taxes and almost all Canadians carry some supplementary health and travel insurance.Health care in Canada is a provincial jurisdiction,some provinces charge extra taxes to cover it one does not.

RE: RV Quality

Every time I point out an issue, many come right back defending the junk. As long as folks blame the user instead of the manufacturer nothing will change. It would be best if you look at a new RV as a pile of materials that needs assembly, you will have the correct outlook. So true and always know you paid either too much or someone paid less.This after rv'ing for over 50 years.But guess what we upgraded our truck and travel trailer this spring.As a friend of mine used to say"Who makes the best junk these days".Just have as much fun as you can afford.

RE: Updated- end of thread,something in the black tank.

Well the next problem of not getting it out is jamming the valve open,it needs to come out as it will eventually clog and collect debris.If you can't hook it can you get at the tank?Can you get at the tank to move it around with a heavy magnet against the bottom to help align it?

RE: Breakdown Options

If it will run at something less then full throttle why not try to drive it home?? Worse case is you toast the engine and have it towed home.

RE: Has anything ever happened that wasn't the RV Park's fault

You want another source of eye opening stories try working as a players assistant or marshall on a golf course.It is even more fun then sitting and watching a boat ramp Sunday afternoon.

RE: Travel Trailers.....what brands to stay away from??

It is very confusing and the industry works hard to keep it that way. What I mean is different brands can be made on the same asembly line with just a different name and cosmetic differences. Someone had trouble with their Prowler so never again. They buy Wilderness. Same asembly line. Same trailer different name. In my observations quality is sorely lacking with few exceptions. As for trailers Lance is great quality for the design. I also like Camp Lite and top of the quality chain is Airstream in my opinion. Read the archives here. Problems in quality occur because asembly line focus is on speed not pride of workmanship. You tube has video's to support this. How a company deals with problems counts alot. Some have their trailers at the shop all through the season for warranty work. What a joke. Take your time and research. Best of luck A very astute reply.The last three words cover it all.

RE: test

Moved to Tech Issues forum from DIY. It is wrong to move this to the Tech forum. This thread is about DIY ceiling work. A small group of morons got to typing a bunch after their evening cocktails and cant seem to see the point of the original post.Just in case I am one of those morons you are referring to,I have no further suggestions of help for you,but hope you are equally adept at ceiling repairs as electical solving.

RE: test

Where in the rv did this short and reversal of polarity take place?In a junction box,in the wall,I am sorry i really am puzzled at this.If the AC went to ground the breaker trips opening the circuit.What exactly is the ac problem,amazing story. Not sure yet on the location other than my breaker box is under the fridge, all good there, but at the ac which is about 10 feet away its crossed. Hopefully when I receiver the new AC and yank the other I will find the short close to the AC so I dont have to do too much in the ceiling. The AC issue is something happened and shorted the compressor, when that happens you need a new one so just get a new AC.Did you in fact disconnect each wire between the breaker box and the AC/Did you check the compressor and fan for short or grounded circuit with no 110 volt wires connected.Did you check the capacitor and other connection points for continuity?Check each wire out individually to be sure you have that reversal problem before yanking and reinstalling new wire.You do know that under certain conditions there can be voltage on the neutral wire.Keep checking every thing and consider consulting a seasoned tradesman.

RE: Wonderful--Toilet Issues

Only 2 ways water gets into a black tank is through the toilet or tank flusher.Only way water gets in tank flusher is with a hose connected to it.

RE: Where do u get class A oil change in Canada?

This is a new unit made by Ford so why don't you ask the local Ford dealer where to have it serviced?

RE: Now I did it.... New Trailer. Good Brand?

Too late to ask that question.Let the emotions settle down.Good is a relative term among users that have good luck and some that don't.It is all opinions if that is what you want.Use it and hopefully you got a good one,everybody makes good and bad ones.

RE: Charcoal questions

Stop playing around and buy a Weber Smokey Joe BBQ (table top 14" charcoal grill) We used one for 7 yrs while FTng traveling. Load it up with Kingsford Charcoal. Slap lid on/close top/bottom vents....use again next day or 2 or 3 ect. Last day....let charcoal burn to ash. Dump next morning. Lid on vents closed.....bungee cord across lid to hole in place and stow away. No mess.......easy set up...GREAT Charcoal flavor and temp controllable with top/bottom vents-------just like a big boy Weber https://i.ytimg.com/vi/vDWpMBfHl7w/hqdefault.jpg height=400 width=400 I have gone back to this same bbq and after dragging every sort of gas one around find it the best tasting and simpler.

RE: bumper attachment to 5th wheel

I have made inspection holes in coreplast by slitting a hatch configuration in.It will bend open and depending upon what needed to be done was done through the hatch or the sheet was removed.I sealed it with eternabond tape along the seams when done.

RE: Organic Tomatoes

I have often wondered what an inorganic tomato would taste like.:B I absolutely refuse to pay extra for so called 'organic' food, as far as I am concerned it is a marketing scam aimed at the gullible. There is no scientific evidence showing that it offers any advantage, it just means I am paying a premium for inferior products as all the bugs and diseases haven't been killed. My dil's family raises sheep. Once they are weaned they are shipped to the hippies on the Gulf Islands for fattening then returned as genyouine certyfied Salt Spring organic lamb. Her step mom is laughing all the way to the bank. Yes we never buy organic either.I tell my wife why would I eat diseased food of any kind.Beef,pork,etc.I would just as soon eat a healthy burger or steak.One day something is bad to eat,the next day that study was wrong and it is fine to eat,eg.butter,eggs etc.

RE: Keystone / Courgar "Polar Package" Experiences???

The Polar package (at least in my 2010) is a bit of a joke. Some have dual pane windows, but most don't. There is a little heat in the underbelly but not to -15. The forum is keystone.org but it is being a bit flaky right now. Check it out but don't be surprised if it seems slow. Very accurate comment.Had the polar package and think it is just a lot of ado about nothing.
