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.

RE: Alberta Friends help me with this route please

Agree on taking Highway 2 through Calgary almost to Edmonton. At Highway 19 (many signs say "Edmonton Bypass") go west til it dead ends at highway 60. Go north on 60 till highway 16 and head west. 22 is OK but real slow.

RE: Residential fridge pros/cons

I like this idea- did you guys hook up water to these so you can make ice? The Norcold 1210 that I took out had a water line to it. You could just connect it to the residential fridge. I didn't as I got a Fisher & Paykel without an icemaker. Never used the icemaker in the Norcold so no need for it in the new one.

RE: Residential fridge pros/cons

I have thermometers in the fridge and freezer compartments....after travel Freezer is still in the high twenties...fridge in low fourties. Really. Might want to take a look around the net. Temps above 40 for more than 2 hours Is it safe? Exactly....that was why we changed to residential. Our RV fridge was in the low forties all the time and the freezer let ice cream melt. We travel with only condiments in the fridge (and beer & pop) and only ice in the freezer (which does not melt while traveling).

RE: Residential fridge pros/cons

After 8 years with rv fridges that couldn't keep frozen stuff frozen, we put in a residential fridge this summer. Can't say enough good about the swap. We did not add an inverter so it only runs on shore power. Have travelled daily for about 3 weeks (each travel day being from 5-7 hours without power) and the inside temp does go up but frozen stuff stays colder than our rv fridge running full time. I have thermometers in the fridge and freezer compartments....after travel Freezer is still in the high twenties...fridge in low fourties.

RE: Golden Village Palms

IMHO Golden Village is a great park but if you are staying for more than a few days they will make you get a back in. You want a pull thru. The back ins are wide but only about 32' long. The back of your rig will be in the hedge and the front will be at or on the road. Lots do this but its just too tight for me. Once you are in....its a great place.....great facilities....walking distance to stores....places to eat etc.

RE: Stoneridge 36RK Ref & Battery issue

WRT battery....Most have an inline circuit breaker. It looks like a very small silver box about an inch by .5 inch. There should be a tiny black button on the box. Press it in. Mine was in the battery compartment but I have seen them other places.....trace the cables from the battery if you can.

RE: Stoneridge 36RK Ref & Battery issue

I used to have a 4 door Norcold 1210. (hated it) On mine there were plastic strips on both sides of the refer held on with 3 screws each. I had to remove the strips to remove the shelves and glass over the bins. Easy to remove screws.

RE: Purchasing vehicle

Moisheh is correct. CBC (Marketplace) did a show this year on price differences between the US and Canada. In the show they explained that many US auto makers (GM, Chrysler, Toyota and Nissan) have told their US dealers that selling to Canadians could cost them their dealership. Ford is OK with US dealers selling to Canadians. Google "registrar of imported vehicles" for info on how to import NEW vehicles into Canada.

RE: slide-outs & generator 5th wheel

I've had both. I had lots of problems with hydraulic. Its messy (fluid) and not every place can work on them. I waited for specialized parts from Lippert on many occasions. I now have electric (no problems so far) and it should be easy to repair? (just wires and motors) I'm sure you'll get other opinions....this is mine.

RE: Snowbirding at Leaf Verde in Buckeye AZ

Have stayed at Leaf Verde for a month (usually Feb) 3 or 4 times (last time was Feb-Mar 2014 for the NASCAR race). Can't beat the rates for 50 amp long pull thrus. Weather has always been great. Nice warm pool, great people (make sure you go to donuts Sat morning), if you like games..lots to do. Its an easy walk to Walmart & fast food places. Whenever we stay in the west, we try to go. Cons are the side by side hookups....the quality of your stay is related to the quality of your neighbor.

RE: not working when plugged into campground cable connection.

It kind of depends on your trailer wiring. Everyone seems to be different. On my latest trailer I need to disconnect the coax in the bedroom and reconnect it to a different port when I use cable. (took 6 months to figure that out) Really a dumb system. The trailer before that was equally complex. What I did was to run coax from the source (campground outlet) in my door and connect it to the TV. Once that works, gradually work it back to the outside of your trailer. My current trailer does not have the usual A/B box, my previous trailer did.

RE: Sale of Canadian Registered RV in USA

Just to clarify.....When we cross The US border agent always has a bunch of questions Where are you from? Where are you going? How long will you be in the USA? How much money do you have? (sometimes its Do you have more than $10000.?) and Are you bringing anything with you that you will be leaving in the USA? I'm not positive but I think I get the Are you bringing anything with you that you will be leaving.......every time. We cross mostly from Alberta but have done it from SK,MB and lots of times from ON so I think its a question we usually get.

RE: Sale of Canadian Registered RV in USA

I guess I wonder about your declaration when crossing from Canada to the USA, where you state you are not bringing anything into the USA that you will be leaving there. I think this is part of the verbal declaration I make every time we cross into the US.

RE: New Mexico winter suggestions

Tucson is nice but NM depends on the time of year. Very cold north of I-10 in Dec & Jan. Have only passed through and not been north of Roswell/Alamogordo so cannot recommend a park. Stayed at 28 Palms ( I think that was the name) in Demming which was nice and the KOA just north of Carlsbad was OK.

RE: 5th wheel water input modification

Had the same on mine. I wanted to keep it in storage compartment (but I understand what you want) so I called a plumber. Took him about 10 minutes to totally rearrange my system, moving the inlet from on top of my dump valves to another area. The inlet fitting is available at any RV place and comes with a plate to screw into your wall. You would need only to drill a hole in your wall and use pex to connect to your existing inlet. Should be easy if you have the tools. I didn't want mine on the outside as I am often in below freezing temps.

RE: Undercoating 5th wheel?

Based upon the number of times I have had to rip into the bottom of my 5er to effect repairs, I'd say don't make it any harder to access.
