RE: RV Across Canada Halifax-Vancouver

Impossible to answer without knowing what your interests or hobbies are.What are your comfort levels when travelling.How much time do you have?Do you want to spend $4000.00 or $24000.00?As a very very general guide line I would suggest at least 4 to 5 months and allow $250.00 per day then make it work.

RE: Advice re: Propane and battery install on tongue

I can't see that residential A/C working very long where it is mounted,directly in line with all mud,road debri etc.I would lose it and use that space for your extra gear.Can't imagine that area not leaking now or soon.Move the a/c up and remount through the wall if you really need it,are you going to have 120volt to run it all the time?

RE: Visiting Canada in my older class B

Here in Saskatchewan the tourism branch is planning on having summer on a Saturday this year, so more people can get out and enjoy it.Don't be scared to venture over the border from Alberta to Saskatchewan as we are a friendly group even after populating Alberta and British Columbia,that project is pretty much over.We kept the good ones.

RE: F150 or F250

I've come to the conclusion that we can't tow it. I felt like I had done proper research and the fact that the owner of my local dealership told me it would tow AND still can tow is a disappointment. I don't want to trade and deal with him as I feel he is BSing us. Can't try to sell it out right knowing the tranny is fried or something isn't right. I wouldn't do that to someone. Thinking about driving to another Ford dealership and trading for a 250. I guess that's my only option. My husband LOVED, LOVED, that dang truck!!! He is from Italy and that's his first truck.. He has been so proud of that thing. But hey it is what it is. Thank you all for your input, advice, and information!! Look forward to better days, and happier forum posts! My husband was laughing the other day saying, "look at me I went from driving a fiat in Italy to owning a big truck and towing a camper. Nobody would believe this back home!" You are awesome. Thanks for you time :) Well hey the dealer says nothing wrong so he should be ok giving you a top trade in price.

RE: Travel trailer fresh water fill question

I just use a spare 12 volt rv Shur flow pump and garden hose to pump it in from what ever water container I use.My battery leads are short,as I set the pump by the battery case.I can usually fill and empty the jugs in the truck without lifting in and out,by getting close enough to fill taps and Rv.

RE: Goodyear pulled a fast one on me. Load rating rant.

Don't be surprised if you have to pay for the difference to upgrade to a higher load range,did you have a quote on these tires?Did you get a price on several different models for your truck.I am sure you did as tire shops always try to sell up.I hope they make you happy but make sure in your persuasive nature to share the responsibility.

RE: Inspecting a used 5th wheel trailer & Pin Box

Say good bye to that one,don't even waste the time trying to determine if and why the screws break.

RE: Two questions about a Motor Coach we are looking at

You are going to be the third owner and may well be the one who pays for the previous wear and use.If the shower has cracked and been replaced then cracked again certainly means there is a serious problem somewhere that has not been resolved and you now will own it.Sounds like low mileage high use unit including bathrooms,furniture, generator,rugs etc.

RE: Pollen and allergies and where to go for winter

Nowhere in FL. The desert. Near Yuma, AZMaybe do some time researching desert fever before recommending this area for allergies.

RE: Sealing Underbelly Seams

Do you suppose it is not sealed for a reason? Just sayin'. If we knew, I wouldn't be asking. So since you have input, is it supposed to be sealed? Isn't it a critter entry point? I am asking a legitimate question, and looking for answers. Sorry, we are not the all knowing masters of the 5th wheel. If anyone has answers to my above questions, I would appreciate a sincere response. Thank youI think you got a very legitimate answer to your question,designed to provoke some thought,why don't you ask the dealer or manufacture.What do you want to do?Seal it entirely,prevent any ventilation,heat loss,dust intrusion,what size of critters.You are questioning the design ask the designers.The rest of us are just offering opinions.Is it a problem as designed?

Did you also put an extender on it because of your short bed truck that you mentioned in previous posts?Hitch guys aren't going to discourage a sale.

RE: The Old Fake Vent Trick Repair

We used to winter in our RV on the Island and you are so right there are few areas that are nicer.Nothing wrong with that wood box.

RE: The Old Fake Vent Trick Repair

Well you sure can't miss that,it draws the eye like a bee to honey.I would have removed the exterior light and used a long screwdriver or something similar to reach in and ease/push the aluminum siding out as far as possible,similar to the dent removable system on vehicles.Maybe I am just too picky.I have seen the vent used before but this style that high up just seems a little too much.Sorry if I sound too critical,don't mean to be.

RE: Interstate Bathroom....er....etiquette

you would have no liability issues, as you provided a free humanitarian service. Charge for it, then you would. There are no gangs of drug thieves waiting in traffic jams to steal your Geritol, Viagra, or Prep H. Ask them to remove their shoes, unless they are Canadian, they will do it anyways. Poo pyramids- easy to avoid with instruction. The best/ worst i've read here is the germophobe who bought an rv out of worry of public facilities. Pity there are so many who have weak arguments, no compassion. Never would we turn away a needy person, on the road or at home. There are people out there who cannot relieve without walls, are unprepared such as the mom with kids, but no water for the formula. Help them. Show the kindness, Make a friend. Pay Forward. You surely don't believe people do everything "you" instruct them to do? You should know better. So what do you do, stand there and watch them? People can have hundreds of thousands of dollars tied up in their rigs. Why do you find the need to come here and belittle their opinion by commenting on there lack of compassion or weak arguments? Your not being very compassionate in your observations.Not sure you shouldn't read your comment and look in the mirror.

RE: Interstate Bathroom....er....etiquette

The part of this whole thing is the comments about getting into legal actions.Is it really that bad out there,I would hope that we have not lost all common sense and empathy toward our fellow man kind.I wonder if the 200 people being mentioned as using the bathroom did bare it all in public,how many NO people would insist they be charged with some crime also.I am almost beyond words and that rarely happens.Explain how the toilet works,about TP,flushing etc.,run them through a radar scan to make sure they did not steal your tooth paste,what ever!!!
