RE: Securing chairs to back wall?

I would think floor anchors would be best. If you do the wall and it pulls out it could be unsightly. Ours came with anchors in the floor but they were just screwed through the carpet into the mdf particle wood that was used as flooring. They pulled out almost immediately but with the carpet you cannot tell. We just let them move around and reposition everything before sending the slides out.

RE: RV PARKS Calgary

Calgary parks are not great. As suggested try either of the 2 listed in Cochrane. Cochrane is about half an hour drive to things in Calgary.

RE: tailgate height ?

Depends on the 5er. My 2012 F-350 dually is 54". I looked at Dodge and GM in 2012 and they were much taller so I went Ford for that reason. I have a 39' 5er and even with the ford its a touch front high when towing.

RE: Sault Ste Marie

Have stayed in sault (Canada) a few times. Most are near the highway and fairly noisy. I like the KOA just north of town. Lots of trees/grass etc but not the cheapest place.

RE: Az state parks... UPS delivery?

I always pick it up at UPS terminal. Quite often if you pick it up at the UPS store they charge a fee. If you get it delivered to your park site UPS usually drops in on your step and its subject to weather and theft. I always send it "hold for pickup" at UPS terminal. Sometimes its a drive but usually I combine it with other errands.

RE: Slide out sliding out in tow

On my DRV the same thing occurred. Went through 5-6 repair places in about 3 months (multiple trips to most of them) replacing a ram and the solinoids numerous times. No luck. Ended up trading the trailer off to one place who told me it was an easy fix.....not sure if they ever got it working. Used a 4X4 wedged between the slide lip and the wall while traveling.

RE: Alberta to Yuma

I hate the I-15 grades between Helena, MT and Dilon, MT (through Butte) We always cut at Boulder MT (highway 69/55/41) and its level almost all the way. The only time I'd take I-15 through Butte is if it was really snowing.

RE: Mid March RV Site Alberta east of Red Deer

Not what you asked but might be good for on the way. Via TC#1 Cochrane, AB (west of Calgary) has 2 parks open all year and on 16 west of Edmonton Camp in class in Stoney Plain has water at your site and is open all year.

RE: K-Z RVs, considering a 315RKD Durango

Have a 2011 Escalade. Had quite a few problems but the build quality was very good. My previous DRV was 100 times worse wrt build quality. Not sure about quality today but I'd buy another if it was anything like my current one..

RE: Any Problems with your 6.7L diesel on Ford F350 ?????

RE: theft deterrent

When we got our 1st 5er I asked long haul truckers what they used. They almost exclusively recommended War-lok. Its not cheap but it is really well made.

At first guess, I'd say some part of your fresh water system had a leak (like a tap). It filled up your grey tank and overflowed the shower drain and sinks. Not sure why the toilet tank filled? After flooding both my rvs numerous times, I always turn off the city water supply when leaving the rv for any time over 5 minutes. No water available....no floods. In my case, on 3 occasions on 2 different rvs the fresh water valve in the toilet failed, filling the bowl and flooding the rv.

RE: Slide Out Drifts

Had the same problem with my Elite Suite. Had to wedge 4 X 4 between slide edge and wall to keep slides in when traveling. Not a fun problem. Spent about 4 months and lots of different dealers trying to fix the problem. Replaced a ram and 3-4 solinoids but never fixed the problem. Finally traded the trailer off. I must say that Lippert was very good about suggesting fixes and supplying parts but we never could resolve the issue. Good luck with yours.

RE: compare trailair pin box to a mor/ride, need help

Had Mor-ryde and 5th Airborne. I would get the Mor-ryde. The air hitch has been a hassle. I hate having to air it up every few days. Not fun in the rain.

RE: Bedframe coming apart

Can't answer your question but had the same problem with my DRV. I used angle iron screwed to the floor and the bed frame to fix it. One angle about 18" long on each side. I didn't try screwing to the wall.

RE: Medipac Travel Insurance For Canadians

Have used Medipac for 2 of my 9 years fulltiming. Had a claim with Medipac 3-4 years ago and it was trouble free. I always go with the cheapest. No problem with Medipac.

RE: Input on Doc's RV Park & Rock Crusher Canyon RV Park

Walked through Docs when we stayed down the street. Doc's looked good but Dec & Jan would be cool.

RE: double pane windows worth it?

Agree with Big Katuna. Great to have dual panes but costly to keep replacing them. Based upon 9 years fulltime, I'd say they last about 4 yrs. Do the math...great to have but not cheap. Had both Hehr and Lippert...both seem to last about the same time.

RE: Good Sam Discount

Have found that at only a few places. Usually its 10% off on daily rate (not weekly or monthly) but not all places no matter how you pay. I've only had the cash only at a few. The ones that bug me are the ones that only give less than 10% off. (like $45 regular rate $42 for Good Sam).

RE: Sofa Dimensions?

Can't give you dimensions, but I have replaced sofas and recliners twice and have one caution. I have replaced them with home style loveseats and you need to measure very carefully. Make sure you account for the lean of the back also accounting for the extra inch or two for the window sills/frame. As I recal the depth is the hardest to find. I think mine was 35" max front to back. The lean of the back was about 8-9" of that.
