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: 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: 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.
