RE: No AC.... Deal breaker?

We camp 8-9 months a year and it would be a deal breaker for us.

RE: Canadians RVing to Alaska

As Sue stated, there is a colon and 's' within the post and it looks like a one time glitch. It is the same code as the smilies option on the forum replies. I never saw this happen before in all my years on the forum. :h We'll need to keep an eye on this. ... Eric (Moderator)

RE: Canadians RVing to Alaska

The issue that you may be faced with is an IRS income tax requirement after 182 days in any given calendar year. Even if the Customs & Immigration folks agree to provide addional time in country, the IRS folks are a different entity and may want to collect income taxes.

RE: Pressure washing rubber roof

Personally I would never use my pressure washer on a roof, I simply use Dawn dish soap and a brush to wash the roof. It may not be perfect but being a roof, it doesn't much matter to me.

RE: Speed Limits in Canada

I too live in a world of pounds, ounces, gallons, miles, inches & feet as well as fahrenheit and always will. :E I understand celsius but it just leaves me too cold, kilometers are simply too long and grams are definitely too small! :B

RE: Taking goods and groceries into Canada

Just crossed into Canada at Port Huron/Sarnia last week and back into the states at Cornwall/Messina 2 days later. Going into Canada, we were asked about liquor, fire arms and if I knew what my plate numbers were. Never asked about any kind of food. Getting back into the states, only wanted to know if there were any people or animals in the TT. The fact that I don't know my plate numbers seemed to tick off the Canadian border guard a bit, but hey, I need to remember a SS number, phone number, address and other more important stuff.....I don't have room for plate numbers. Other than that, both crossings were short and sweet. Hopefully, next week will go the same way. Really surprised an agent would ask for a plate number, typically if the cameras are unable to pick up the plate number (common with rv's), the normal protocol is to ask to see the vehicle registration.

RE: What TT for a car enthusiast?

Things I would consider with a smaller tow vehicle are both engine and transmission heat as well as braking. Many of the smaller trailers have brakes but there is still a strain on the tow vehicle braking system.

RE: 2015 Keystone Passport Battery Drain

.......... TV Antenna booster ON?........... Never thought of that; I don't recall the booster light being on if not on ac power but I would need to check.

RE: Taking goods and groceries into Canada

We cross several times a week and from a food perspective, the only concern at the moment is poultry and poultry products. We buy a fair chunk of our groceries in the U.S. each week and haven't had any issues with beef or pork. The big three questions are always tobacco products, alcohol and weapons. So..is bourbon considered an alcohol or is it the elixar of life and thus exempt? Gary Haupt Well Gary, to my knowledge bourbon is only excempt when it's in you! :B ... Eric

RE: New TECH PRODUCT

It doesn't bother me when I'm asleep but when we sitting out late at night trying to enjoy the night sky, the neighbor right beside us with his trailer lit up like a Christmas tree is extremely annoying. ... and yeah I'm a crotchety old man and glad to be around to be one. :C come camp with us and you can listen to me B'ing about everything all night long. :B

RE: Why

Last thing I want is an outside shower next to the entrance or in our 'patio' space; behind the trailer is where it belongs in my opinion.

RE: RV hitch weight question

The stated hitch weight on mine was as it left the factory and included full propane tanks and the battery.

RE: New TECH PRODUCT

Very few things annoy me more than having a neighbor camper with all the lights on all night; even worse now that LED's are used. :M

RE: Shrinking Canadian dollar

We're in upstate NY during much of the summer months. This year from early May, there has been roughly a 20% drop in Canadians visiting our campground where we seasonal. Also a similar drop to cross-border shopping in the region according to the local media.
