RE: Yukon River ice breakup at Dawson City YT

A yes, traditions. I remember as a kid growing up in Sudbury. The city would park an old clunker of a car in the middle of the lake and have a contest, guessing when it would fall through in the Spring. How things have changed. Imagine trying that today. Yeah they did that in North Hatley, Qc on Lake Massawippi (where I grew up) until the environmentalists got involved! :E Now the governments are supporting sinking ships to make artificial reefs, go figure! :B

RE: Poultry ban

So how much more was the same chicken in Canada? For us in the Montreal area it's 50% to 75% higher. ... Eric

RE: Poultry ban

Must be a regional thing. Bought several pounds of chicken yesterday in Plattsburgh, NY and no problem at the border. We even told the agent what we had. ... Eric

RE: tire pressure

Should the tires always be inflated to the maximum pressure that it says on the sidewall? Truck or trailer? ST series tires on a trailer then yes; if tires are on the tow vehicle then use the tire manufacturer's recommendation for loads.

RE: 8840 question

They don't respond or confirm receipt. I'd love to see their screen when we go through US Customs to see if the forms have been registered on our file. I would hope they would be. Toban I doubt it. I don't think the immigration guys talk to the IRS guys. Completely different set of rules and limits. Yeah correct. On a side note, the immigration arm is actually looking at extending the right to visit up to 8 months.

RE: Will magnet stick to fiberglass???

Would you have room on the slides for some small Velcro pieces? I've used Velcro for all kinds of things.

RE: Seasonal rv site

We were paying $0.20 per kh which worked out go around $150 per season (5 months) for us. We had some changes last year in our fee structure and now we it's part of our overall site fee for the season. When we were on a meter there was a constant debate about meters not registering the same site to site. My guess is the meters were very inaccurate so it became a nightmare to administer. ... Eric

RE: Can I lift my Camper with a jack ? (pictures inside)

I jack mine up using a floor jack under the spring hangers block to re-level it if it settles in one spot. Quick to do and don't need to re-hitch and disconnect everything.

RE: Seasonal rv site

Been dong this 8 years; turn off the water, turn off the hot water heater, leave the roof vents open, put the fridge on 'auto'. Every 4-5 weeks I pull the slides in to exercise the system and help keep the seals flexible. Likely not necessary but it is something that I have always done.

RE: Hagerstown-Antietam Battlefield KOA, Williamsport, Maryland

Good place, stayed there several times with both our coach and tt. Never had any issues getting into campsites. The place fills up on weekends so reservations are a good idea. Only issue is the cost, it's very expensive even for an KOA.

RE: Beware the taxman

Yeah Al I agree, that's pretty much leaving an opening for interpretation. I guess it's done intentionally so that they can go after those who they feel are really abusing their presence in the U.S. and not folks like ourselves who clearly reside outside the U.S. I don't believe the U.S. government wants to deter cross-border shopping and recreational activities for those who clearly have a closer connection to Canada. ...

RE: Beware the taxman

What can nail you is those quick trips across the border for Canadians who live close to it. Even 1 minute counts as a day. BTW the IRS is also going after US citizens in Canada. This is not what US Customs and Border Protection told us at a meeting we had at Champlain NY. They do not consider same-day crossings as presence in the U.S. for the purpose of determining residency. I guess like everything else it can be a matter of regulation interpretation. We live close to the border and cross regularly, sometimes several times a week during summer months (we've have a campsite in upstate NY). We use Nexus passes so our crossings are always registered. We'll have to see how it all plays out. ... Eric

RE: How do you seal a sewer hose

I gave up on those and started using the Camco Revolution Sewer hoses. They do not leak, they have caps for both ends for storage and they fit in the trailer bumper. http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/camco-39624-20-revolution-sewer-hose-kit/6000130570268

RE: Blue Ox Sway Pro, Anderson or Equalizier ?

I tow with a 12K Equali-z-er and it has been great; no real sway and my rig is level. It's simple to hitch, unhitched and I can back up without disconnecting anything.

RE: Cruiser RV/Fun Finder info

We don't have a Fun Finder but we have an Enterra by Cruiser RV. We've used it 125 days over the past 12 months and it has performed really well. A couple minor issues with cupboard door hinges and a piece of trim but other than that it has been great.

RE: pros/cons seasonal site

We love having a seasonal site, this will be our 9th year. It's 75 miles from home so we go back and forth all summer and we essentially use the rv as a cottage. We also still travel occasionally from our seasonal to other campgrounds whenever we get the urge to do so. We have a deck, a storage box for chairs etc... and we are able to leave everything connected all the time. Best of both worlds for us.
