RE: How do you carry water hoses?

Store our's drained and the ends attached in a open Rubbermaid container. I leave the top off the container to prevent mildew.

RE: Oppose slides

Those are Schwintek slides on Winnies. They use a rail system that requires power to the small motors mounted at the top ends of both slides. Once you hit the button, you should not stop the movement part way or you risk them going out of synchronisation. With this in mind, I would put out each slide individually because they need all the power they can get, especially on the way back in. You want to mitigate any opportunity for 'stalling' especially if your battery(s) is a bit low. I have them on mine also and I put them out one at a time.

RE: Cooking in the TT

We do not different than we do at home. If it's nice out and we're having 'grilling' food, we cook outside; if we're having 'stove top' type food, we cook inside on the stove or in our toaster oven. Never had a cooking odor issue in any rv we've owned. :C Just on a side note, we don't poop in the kitchen! :B

RE: Making up bed

We pull the mattress back to where we can reach, then make the bed and slide the mattress back in place.

RE: Backing up made easy

I grew up backing up tandem hay wagons; it didn't always work, but as a teenager, it was sure fun trying! :C

RE: Real world numbers

Depending upon where we are going and what we are doing, we'll add 600 lbs to 800 lbs.

RE: Do you grease the bars?

On my Equal-i-zer I only grease the socket areas of the hitch/head assembly, I grease nothing that touches the bars themselves.

RE: Ammo OK?

Thank you. I thought closing the thread was a bit precipitous. Don't understand what the word 'precipitous' means in this context. :h (of an action) done suddenly and without careful consideration. Well I guess us old engineering folks aren't up on our words! :E

RE: Ammo OK?

Another gun thread gone way off the OP's question; time to close it. On edit! I reopened this thread but if the discussion goes anywhere off the regulations about crossing into Canada with ammunition, the thread will be re-closed.

RE: Clearance lights regulation

You'll have to first run across a very bored or poor cop, and secondly it will just be a fix-it...and THEN you can fix it. Most likely no one will ever even notice. I've had two out for years and although they had plenty of opportunity, no cop ever said a word. It depends where you are going. Here in Quebec, we have transport police (separate from provincial police) whose job is to just look for stuff like this. ... Eric

RE: Latest on Poultry Ban into Canada

This was updated yesterday, May 11th; http://www.inspection.gc.ca/animals/terrestrial-animals/imports/travellers/restriction-on-imports/eng/1421341696172/1421341727507 ... Eric I'm glad you posted this information, we're headed up to Alaska via BC and the Yukon. I find the Canadian border website very difficult to navigate in trying to find such information. When you search are you including 'domain', ie. ".ca" in your search site. Or are you going to www.google.ca or www.yahoo.ca? :C The CBSA website is not very intuitive, how you get there is really not relevant.

RE: Opening slide

Another thing you should do is open the entry door before opening and closing slide(s). It allows air to flow in/out and displace more efficiently which provides less strain on the slide systems.
