RE: kitchen faucet

The one that KZ uses is non repairable. I got one from Lowes that I can repair when it leaks.

RE: Air pin boxes

Not sure about other air hitches but I have a 5th airborne (for past 4 years) and would not get another one. Constantly needs air, and tows no better than my previous Mor-ryde non air. If you like dragging out the air compressor everytime you hitch up, get the 5th airborne IMO.

RE: Routing Question from my Canadian Friends

Just a tip if staying anywhere near Calgary or Edmonton. Don't...the parks there are not great. Try Cochrane, AB (west of Calgary) or Stony Plain (west of Edmonton).

RE: Montana crossings

Agree with GordonThree. Everytime we go though a small crossing, we get held up with a full search of all drawers and compartments.

RE: Air flow for residential fridge

We live in our rv at least 6 months a year. There is no way I am going to heat and cool the rig because I left two holes open in the wall. Leave yourself 1/2" on the sides and an inch on the top and seal those vents. That is the way mine is and it looks and works just fine. Dave I did mine the same way. Works great fulltiming. A friend left the rear vents open with his residential fridge instal. It took his first trip down the highway seeing all the dust blow in (with an rv fridge the fridge is sealed so that outside air cannot get into the living area) to decide to seal up the vents.

RE: Very New to Snowbirding Florida Question Please

Stayed in Navarre and its a great place but not in Dec, Jan or first part of Feb....tooo cold. As previously referenced, you want to be south of Orlando in the winter. (or Texas south of Corpus, AZ or south CA)

RE: Oil Service in Calgary, AB

I lived in Calgary for 20 years and always got my F-450 serviced at a Ford dealer without problems. (even had total engine rebuilds done at the Ford dealer) I don't know why an E-450 would be different. I now have an F-350 (almost the same thing) and get service every summer at Northstar Ford. (locations in Calgary & Cochrane, AB) PS...if you are staying in the Calgary area, the rv parks are less than stellar in Calgary. Try Cochrane (both are good) and its 20 minutes out of Calgary.

RE: TV Antenna

Have rarely found campground Wi-Fi strong enough to even get e-mail. Doubt if you could stream a movie.

RE: cabinet door

myredracer...my experience was like yours.....went to many cabinet makers to get a door made.....99% said it couldn't be done, the 1% that said they could do it wanted more than my trailer was worth just for the door. Part of the problem was that no one could match the profile and the other part was that to match the color was very expensive.

RE: Disc Brake conversion?

KIWIRVER Ford integrated brake controller in my 08 Ford would not properly run my hydraulic/electric disks in my trailer so I installed the Prodigy. You can not just disconnect the Ford IBC as the onboard computer will sense a problem and give you warning alarms. Just cut the wires from the Ford IBC and attach your aftermarket controller and it will work fine. The Ford computer will think no trailer is attached so it will not alarm and your aftermarket controller will brake your trailer.

RE: How does your slide work?

RE 4 season. Not sure about yours but on mine (2011 KZ Escalade) the dealer sold it as 4 season but after having the bottom off to replace the black valve, I noticed the same as you.(only a thin piece of foil) I went through the KZ literature very carefully. They talk about residential and full time living but never really call it 4 season livable. I do live in it in freezing weather and it works, but insulated its not.

RE: Anyone Replaced The Integrated Brake Controller?

In my 08 Ford the Ford IBC would not run my electric/hydraulic brakes on my trailer (a common problem with electric/hydraulics of that era) so I installed a prodigy which worked great. I have since traded the Ford and my trailer (to one with electric drums) and now use the IBC in the new truck with the std electric trailer brakes. If you switch out the IBC one thing to remember is not to unplug the IBC, just cut the output wires to connect your aftermarket controller. If you unplug the IBC the truck computer senses it and shows a dash alarm. Not sure what actuator you had, but my Carlisle Hydra-Star has a module that lets any truck operate the electric over hydraulic. I towed this trailer with electric/hydraulic disk brakes with a 2006, 2008, and 2014 Ford with IBC without any modifications beyond just plugging it in. The module is an HBA-CAM. I just had to remember on the 2014 to actually select electric/hydraulic on the IBC. The 2008 or 2006 did not have that as a selectable option. The HBA-CAM would not work with my Actibrake actuator. Had many discussions with the Actibrake people (Actibrake now out of business) while trying to resolve the issue. Gave up and bypassed the IBC with the aftermarket prodigy and ended the hassle. I think DRV ended up replacing the Actibrake actuator for most DRV owners with the Carlisle eventually after so many complaints.

RE: Lower skirt/panel damaged

Any body shop should work.. I think the panel is just sheet aluminum. If it were me, I'd go to RVsforless. Tiny little place but they've done great work for me.

RE: Las Vegas NV.

Usually stay at Oasis or Las Vegas RV Resort (Oasis $$$$, LVRVR inexpensive). Late Dec and Jan is way too cold....occasionally below 32. Great place in Nov & Mar.

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.
