RE: honda genny theft deterrent apparatus

The very best theft deterrent is......... buying a Champion generator! The thief’s won't put time into cutting the handle or chains. Wait, wait there was a report of chain stolen and they left the Champion generator. MM49 Actually my Honda is about ten years old and is ready to go bye bye. There is no such thing as service on these suit case generators. MM49 Mine is 12 years old and is still going strong; starts easy, runs smooth, doesn't burn oil and charges great.

RE: honda genny theft deterrent apparatus

I strap a Kryptonite cable lock tight around the body of my Honda 2000 and the feed another one through it to whatever I am locking to. The cables I have would need a power cutter break them, a bolt cutter won't work. Not to say the genny can't be stolen but the cables offer a greater deterrent.

RE: Renewing Ontario license plate stickers just got harder

It's the same here in Quebec where have the 'Contrôle routier Québec' which is essentially 'the transport police'. They patrol the highways looking mostly for trucking safety issues however they can and have pulled over any vehicle they might deem as potentially dangerous. They can pull over rv's. ... Eric

RE: Canadian Full-Timers

Hi, Yes you can stay up to 183 days. However if you did so in 2014, 2/3 of those days would count against the 2015 total, and 1/3 will count against the 2016 total. It effectively means one can stay about 120 days per year south of the border. If you end up paying US income tax, it is quite possible for revenue Canada to deem that you have sold all assets in Canada and require you to pay capital gains. That would be a huge "ouch" for me. now the main thing to remember is to keep careful track of the exact time and date you enter the U.S. and when you return into Canada, you are allowed a maximum of 180 CONSECUTIVE days in the U.S and to be clear that's from when you enter until when you leave and don't fool with that as the U.S. can take away your closer connection status ( you should also file your 8840 closer connection form) and make you pay income taxes. We usually give a week for good measure in the event of a problem on the way home. Red Green: Remember, I'm pulling for ya. We're all in this together Hey Pianotuna. Hows it going out there. Your post is mostly correct, HOWEVER, a Canadian can stay in the US the whole six months every year IF they file the IRS 8840 form statimg they have a closer ties to Canada. Cheers. Correct, the requirement is to complete the US IRS 8840 form and you are permitted 182 days; day 183 you are over the limit. ... Eric

RE: Ready cash

If you plan to stay in a provincial camp ground, they do not take bank cards. From what I have read, it's not unusual for the bank card machines to be down at the gas stations, so you better have some cash or you will be waiting for service to be restored. The provincial campgrounds in my province accept cash, debit or credit. Canada is made up of many provinces. ...... So do our provincial ones here in Quebec as well as an Ontario park that we used to camp at a lot.

RE: Renewing Ontario license plate stickers just got harder

Just my opinion but I think it's only a matter of time before we see road inspections popping up across both Canada and the US to include RV's along with the truck ones we see. In NY state yesterday along I87 we saw two 'Open' inspection stations on our trip home from SC. This is where I envision RV's being included at some point.

RE: If I won the mega-millions lottery I would...

I would commute back and forth to my ranch in New Zealand, in my own executive jet. Pretty much what I was thinking except I would fly to my high end condos that I would buy in various locations around the world.

RE: air conditioner / honda 2000

I cannot run my ac with my Honda 2000, it simply does not work. During several tries, it has started then either the genny would or the ac would shut down.

RE: Renewing Ontario license plate stickers just got harder

Nothing like rolling out a new system before ANYONE knows how to operate/enter registration info. yep, that certainly wouldn't happen here in the states. bumpy :B. :B

RE: Pink Anti-freeze

Not all pink antifreezes are created equal. I've had pink antifreeze only turn to slush in the toilet after a week with temps down to -30/-35. Personally I have never seen it freeze solid.

In all my years of camping/rving I've never locked anything and we've never lost anything! :C

RE: Those that store their campers..when you pulling them out!

We use our's down south until the end of March when we bring it home. I winterize it and then leave it winterized until the second week of May. We then start 'summer' camping until mid-October.
