RE: King bed measurements in Montana 3725RL

Don't know about Montana's but most rv kings are 72" wide by 78" long. A real king is 78 X 80.

RE: Back wall Entertainment Center vs Side

Have had 2 REs and like the plan. We put sofas in each slide and we layout on the sofa for direct TV viewing in a reclined position. Works for us...but everyone is different...that's why there are different floor plans.

RE: Clarification on rules for Canadian length of stay in US

Fulltimewanna.... When we started fulltiming years ago we surveyed Canadians staying in parks we visited in the winter down south. (non scientific...we just asked Canadians we talked to) In the first couple of years I'd say only about 10% or less filled out the 8840. (we have filled it out for the last 8 years) Since then more and more seem to fill it out but I'd guess that only about 50% of those we talk to who spend close to 180 days/yr fill it out. We still talk to a number who pay no attention to the 6 month rule and routinely stay longer and lots who workcamp in the USA for free sites.

RE: Manitoba and Sasketchewan in Early August

When in Winnipeg, take the tour of the Canadian Mint. If you rv, the best place to stay in Winnipeg (my opinion) is Arrowhead in Illes des chenes south of town. Prairie Oasis RV in Moose Jaw, SK. Suggestions of previous poster are good.

RE: South Florida Resorts?

In south Florida and lovin it. It will be more than AZ. Likely about X3 or X4. WE can only afford Florida about every third year. By the water in Naples and its nearly $2000/mo. Inland is cheaper....Near Sebring will get you similar to Black Canyon (where we have also stayed).

RE: Need reservations for winter stay in Tucson?

Not sure about long term stays, but have stayed a month in the Jan-Feb timeframe a few times. Lots of vacant space in Voyager and Lazy Days when I was there.

RE: Verizon???

Use Verizon all over USA and Canada including Quartzite. Been very good. Had zero problems at RV show in Q a few years ago.

RE: Trilogy axel problem

Not sure what your problem is and my info is dated, but I bought a 2011 KZ Escalade in May 2011. By the winter (less than 4000 miles) the tires were shot. Went to dealer and was told there was zero warranty on suspension parts (spindles were bent). Called KZ who told me the trailer had a 2 year warranty but that suspension parts were not warranted. Called Alco (who made the axles) and was told that if I shipped the axles to them in CA. they would check them and repair only if it was a manufacturing defect. I would have to pay shipping both ways regardless. I put on new tires and had an alignment place do the best they could. It was better but it still uses up tires in about 10-12000 miles. Haven't done anything else yet except replace tires....quoted 3000 and a week without the trailer to get new axles.

RE: Need to replace SunRay Model 930 12V flourescent

The kind I used were Star Lights Inc brand. Have used them for 5 years...no problems. RV places have them but I got a cheaper deal on Ebay. Easy to instal...just a couple of wires to snip and join. Part # is T8-18

RE: Need to replace SunRay Model 930 12V flourescent

Had a similar problem in my past 2 fivers. Eventually I went to a led replacement for the flourescents. Not cheap but the led tubes go into the existing fixtures so it looks and fits like the originals. Have been very happy with the conversion. Easy to do, great lighting and original fixture.

RE: Non Park Model Arizona RV Resorts?

Have stayed at Voyager in Tucson....nice park but mostly park models. In Phoenix area try Leaf Verde in Buckeye......nice park with only 1 or 2 park models.

RE: Campground Reviews

Agree -- I was just there. They've taken one of the easiest to use web utilities and made it into a difficult experience. X2

RE: Best Phone/data plan for snowbirds

Not what you asked and I think we have talked about this before, but as a Canadian we have been very happy with Verizon. For voice our phone is $59/mon for 1400 minutes anywhere in North America. Always works. We also use Verizon mi-fi for data (only in the USA)$35/mon for 3Giga. $0/mon while in Canada. The phone is also free (uses no minutes) Verizon to Verizon. We use the Verizon phone 365 in Canada and US and mi-fi in usa only.

RE: Best RV Park in Yuma Area

Stayed in Yuma a few times and never found a great park. The weather is great and the parks are cheap....that's the draw. Most seem to like the foothills area (Yuma east) and there is one south by the base (the name escapes me) that's kind of nice, but its noisy. The Palms is a little more upscale but it costs more as I recall.

RE: Edmonton

IMHO the campgrounds in and around Edmonton are crap. Glowing Embers (west of ED) good only as a last resort. St Albert (north of Ed) is so-so and its in St Albert so hotels are close. The best alternative is Camp In Class in Stony Plain (west of ED about 20 miles) and its in town so again hotels are close.

RE: Getting an American Visa Credit Card

Have a US $ Visa from TD in Canada. Automatic payment on statement due date from my TD Canadian acct. Works perfectly. TD gave me a zip to use when asked. The zip is the banks transfer zip (not sure what that means but it works). The TD US$ Visa has my home Canadian address with postal code and have used it problem free in the US for 8 winters.
