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.

RE: DIdn't receive free night certificate

Have been a member for 8 years and never received the coupon although have talked to others who received one. Inquired with GS about that coupon last winter and was told that the free night (to max of $25) was no longer offered by GS.

RE: Benson, AZ January weather question

Just go 30 miles west to Voyager in Tucson (exit 270 or there abouts) and you'll we warm.

RE: Is there such a Travel insurance Policy

Had both minor ($1500) and major ($25000+) claims on my travel insurance and not been cancelled. Used AIG, Manulife, Medipac, PC etc. Not sure what your problem is?

RE: Travel Insurance for Albertans

Every travel insurance plan I have seen requires that coverage start the day you leave your home province. If one leaves AB and spends a month in other provinces before crossing to the USA, the insurance would be invalid. AHCIP would cover you for the month but your 6 month travel insurance must begin the day you leave AB. If you have a plan that does not state that, I would like to know who provides that so I could get a quote from them. We have had 2 claims against our travel insurance in the past. In both cases (different companies) the first thing we had to prove before they accepted the claim, was the exact date that we left our home province.

RE: Travel Insurance for Albertans

Used Medipac one year,,,had claim...was handled well......but since then its been a real hassle to renew. Gave up on trying to satisfy their requests for info so have gone elsewhere the last couple of years. They are one of the few that will issue a 7 month policy so I may be forced to consider them again.

Travel Insurance for Albertans

Every year we survey about 10-12 companies for our winter travel insurance. This year we plan to take advantage of the 7 months out of province and spend a month going accross Canada before crossing for 6 months into the USA. In our quest for travel insurance most insurers (over 3/4 of those we have contacted) will not issue a travel insurance policy for more than 6 months. What gives? Thought the Alberta "time out of province" was changed last Dec.

RE: Tombstone, AZ

Previous poster is on the money wrt weather. Also, its kind of remote so there really isn't a bunch to do or places to shop like Walmart, Fry's etc. There is enough to keep you busy for maybe a week (Bisbee, Douglas, Benson etc) but after that bring a good book.

RE: Palm Creek Golf and RV Resort, Casa Grande, AZ

It won't be full. Nice place. Look for specials....Usually first timers (or those who haven't been for 2 years) get a smoking deal.. In 2012/13 we got a month for $189. We had been before but not for a few years. They do tack on a bunch of ridiculous fees (garbage fee, electrical meter fee etc) just be aware.

RE: wiring fault on trailer

Did that on my 08 Ford from day one. Went to no end of Ford dealers and trailer places looking for a fix. Eventually I replaced the Ford built in brake controller with an aftermarket and no problems after that. Good luck on your quest. I think my problem was related to the trailer hydraulic.electric brakes but if yours are just std trailer brakes, not sure what could be the cause.

RE: Complete Electrical failure on DRV MS 2011

After replacing 2 transfer switches in less than a year, I gave up and permanently bypassed them. At least both were warranty. Instead of replacing the second failed unit the manufacturer paid to rewire around it instead of providing ATS # 3.
