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.

RE: US Tax Form 8840 For Canadian Snowbirds

Filled it out for the last 7 years. Now that Canada shares crossing info with the USA its fairly important. With all the data now, the US just has to run a program to see if you are taxable.

RE: Complete Electrical failure on DRV MS 2011

Surge protector or ATS (Auto transfer switch for genie) failure would be my guess. Had 2 ATS fail and it leaves the trailer with no power.

RE: advice on choosing snowbird site close to shopping

Have been all over and can only think of one, Golden Village Palms in Hemet, CA. Sorry but I can't think of any on the Gulf coast. As for Golden Village it is across the street from Target, next to Home Depot, less than a block to Safeway (Wil-CO is better than Safeway but about 2 blocks). I don't really like the park but lots seem to love it. Lots of park activities.

RE: Removing Slide Toppers

On mine I just used a box cutter to slice through the remains of the vinyl topper (slide was out). I then unscrewed the mounts on my slide. The only thing left was to slide out a bit of vinyl attached to the trailer. It just slid out from one end.

RE: Fifth wheel slide issue

The plastic thing is from Lippert. They don't last. I used a common door hinge bolted to the plastic and the frame which lasted 3 years til I sold the trailer.

RE: Landing Gear Pin Replacements

Don't get the kind with the plastic collars. Get all steel that you bolt together. As good as they look the plastic collars open up and your pins can fall off while traveling.

RE: slide out fabric

Make sure you get vinyl not acrylic. The acrylic is way too light and will stretch/hold rain water. There are other posts on this. PPL is good but have it installed by a pro unless you are really comfortable doing it yourself. The spring can be really dangerous.

RE: new transfer switch, any reason for placement

Had a Surge Guard ATS in my 2011 5er. The first one lasted a year before it failed leaving my trailer without power (shore or Gen). Second one lasted another year before doing the same thing. Ok to hide behind screwed in panel...just be able to get to it when it gives up.

RE: Deadbolt lock recall

Looked up recal info on web. Mine was recalled but have never received notification and have never replaced mine.

RE: Bounce?

Have JTs but use jackstands under the frame instead. Jackstands work really well. I put mine behind the axles on the frame......lower front jacks....slide in jackstands.....tighten them up.......raise front jacks.

RE: 10" or 12" Lube Disk

Some hitches (like Reese Elite or Signature) specify the size to use. My Reese specifies 12" only. I don't think its critical though.
