RE: Why do people have such large trailers?

We spend 8-10 months a year camping; with kids and grandkids with us sometimes, the more space the better.

RE: Canada Day

Happy Canada Day to all our forum friends. :C We're about to head out to a family bbq.

RE: Exhaust fumes in camper?

Assuming you are asking about the TT in your profile photo, no you will never have an issue with fumes in the trailer affecting anything.

RE: Medical Insurance

I'm down to 15 days coverage on my gold credit card due to age. Beyond that we're fortunate to have a very close personal friend who is an insurance agent exclusively for travel insurance. Even though she a close family friend, she goes through the pre-condition questionnaire each time we either top up of coverage or look for new coverage. It's very easy to want to skip all the questions but having had to change some medications at times, I know that I would have missed something. It is also too easy to want to brush off a med change or discount something that you may have mentioned to your doctor in the past. ... Eric

RE: Medical claim Denied

Gary, unfortunately I have to disagree with you on this one my friend. Many of us from Canada who spend a significant amount of time in the U.S.are faced with having to require supplemental travel insurance. The question of pre-condition medical information is a valid concern when acquiring travel insurance. That is why I would be specifically interested in knowing anything at all that could affect coverage. I don't think anyone is personally attacking the OP's friend, I simply want to make sure that all the facts are on the table. Often an omission of information whether intentional or not will result in a claim denial. We need to make sure that Canadians travelling outside of the country understand this. ... Eric

RE: Year Round Campgrounds

You might want to use a hotel for one night if you are worried about frozen water lines. That's what we do.

RE: Medical claim Denied

I cannot believe that a doctor would be writing up anything that was never discussed with a patient, it simply does not make sense to me; there would be no point in doing so. There has to be a little more to the story.

RE: Medical claim Denied

If they had a US suplimental plan why would it not pay since Obamacare stipulates no exemptions for preexisting conditions. Or is that another flaw in Obamacare????? It would be a Canadian supplement for coverage in the U.S., nothining to do with 'Obamacare'

RE: Plane Crash 9 Killed - Tour Out of Ketchikan

We operated several aircraft under both FAA & Transport Canada regs and as much scrutiny that these agencies provide, things still fall through the cracks. Unfortunately when an aircraft hits a mountain it's rarely an aircraft issue, it often plays out as a poor decision or just plain lack of practical experience in a critical situation. Either way it does not bring anyone back, as I wrote before, it's just really sad to have happened. ... Eric

RE: Plane Crash 9 Killed - Tour Out of Ketchikan

I worked in the aircraft engine business for over 40 years and absolutely hate to ever hear of any aircraft event like this. I lost some good friends years ago on a tour excursion in New Zealand when the aircraft hit a mountain in weather. I for one will never jump on any aircraft in any weather. I hate to say but I believe that many of these tour folks should not be in business. Sad, really sad.

RE: Gun storage before going into Canada

I have deleted several posts that were off topic. The OP asked about where to store guns before entering Canada, any response other than to answer that specific question will be deleted. We all know too well the direction that gun threads to usually end on this forum. ... Eric (Moderator)

RE: Travel costs comparison

Traveling with an rv or traveling with a car and staying in hotels is just not comparable. We do both regularly for a variety of reasons. If anyone needs to rationalise the cost of doing both on an extend trip or vacation, I'd say just don't take the trip because you will be forever second guessing.

RE: Driving with landing gear partially extended?

Having towed a 5th wheel for many years in the past, if it comes unhitched while driving, the least of your problems will be damaging the landing gear! Having the landing gear particially down would never be an option to me.

RE: For those who are not aware, Propane tank expiration.

For those that are talking about exchange/trade at the local propane exchange place this is good if one has just the 20 lb. BBQ type and just want 3&1/2 gals. and not the 5 gals. that a 20 lb. will hold. Most TT and 5th wheels come with 30 lb. 7gals. cylinders (yes I know that some smaller TT and 5ers now come with the 20 lb. BBQ type), point is I have never seen a propane exchange that carries 30 lb. cylinders. For the ones that are just exchanging their cylinders have you done away with your 30lb. cylinders or did your trailer come with 20's? The local exchange place where we go does 30-lbs tanks too. They don't carry as many but they usually have a couple.

RE: For those who are not aware, Propane tank expiration.

I also just do a propane fill exchange with mine when they are due.

RE: Leaving kids unattended in RV all day?

That's a real shame but a reality in today's world. Perhaps the campground management knows a little more about their family situation.

RE: Sewer hose love

I used the RhinoFlex hose for a couple years but found the Camco Revolution Swivel Sewer Hose System to be much more flexible. Same connectors and covers for both ends. I've had the same hose for two years now and it is still holding up great despite sitting out both at the beach all winter and at our northern seasonal site all summer each year.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Over the years folks planning their trips to Alaska found it easier to follow-up and see what fellow forum members were doing as part of their adventures each year. The alternative in the past was to literally have hundreds of disconnected threads going on the same topic. Even with this format, some members have started additional threads that deal with BC and Alaska travel but have more specific interests or questions. It is what has worked best over the years. ...

RE: Fun Finder is letting me down

Just wait 'til the seams start leaking and the walls rot. I think you are doing pretty well for buying rock bottom on the price scale. I've seen a lot more go bad, more quickly, for some of the members in our RV club. What would make you think that the seams will start leaking and the walls will rot? Normal maintenance on any rv is required regardless of it's price scale.
