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.

RE: Campground Reviews

Agree -- I was just there. They've taken one of the easiest to use web utilities and made it into a difficult experience. X2

RE: Best Phone/data plan for snowbirds

Not what you asked and I think we have talked about this before, but as a Canadian we have been very happy with Verizon. For voice our phone is $59/mon for 1400 minutes anywhere in North America. Always works. We also use Verizon mi-fi for data (only in the USA)$35/mon for 3Giga. $0/mon while in Canada. The phone is also free (uses no minutes) Verizon to Verizon. We use the Verizon phone 365 in Canada and US and mi-fi in usa only.

RE: Best RV Park in Yuma Area

Stayed in Yuma a few times and never found a great park. The weather is great and the parks are cheap....that's the draw. Most seem to like the foothills area (Yuma east) and there is one south by the base (the name escapes me) that's kind of nice, but its noisy. The Palms is a little more upscale but it costs more as I recall.

RE: Edmonton

IMHO the campgrounds in and around Edmonton are crap. Glowing Embers (west of ED) good only as a last resort. St Albert (north of Ed) is so-so and its in St Albert so hotels are close. The best alternative is Camp In Class in Stony Plain (west of ED about 20 miles) and its in town so again hotels are close.

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.
