RE: Grey Tank not draining

Although it could result in a mess, how about undoing a wire coat hanger and sending it up there to see what you poke into. At least it's not the black tank.

RE: Good Sam Automatic Renewal

Usually there is a first hit on a card to check if it is good but usually pending. Actually money not taken out. However, that is why I use shop safe. Number goes dead after use. I have had nothing but problems with some companies. Not only GS. They just assume tooooo much and think they are doing there customers a favor by renewing automatically. When these things happen the best thing is to call credit card company and indicate fraud on your card. Most companies figure that out quickly. Where do I find shop safe? I believe it's only Bank of America and MBNA that offer it.

RE: What's the purpose of this black tank fitting?

I'd hate to use that to back flush... a whole bunch of "stuff" would get in between this and the pull valve, you'll get a bath of it switching this to your slinky. Chunks that might be leftover in the tank might not pass through the hose on this attachment...

RE: Been sitting and thinking...

I think that once you start losing confidence behind the wheel, it's time. Whether it's confidence in yourself or others on the road is not important. When getting to your destination and doing what we do isn't fun anymore, then why do it? Until then, enjoy every darn second because we can't predict when that day will be.

RE: Another negative recommendation of an RV Park

I'm pretty sure the reason you got the "Oh Well" treatment is because they know darn well that anyone who reads the review is also likely to view their website, where it clearly indicates that the fee is per person. Therefore, if that's the basis of your review, they're not the ones that look like they are in the wrong there. I'm not expecting anyone to treat you any differently when you didn't take the time to look over the rules in the first place. I just don't get people who expect visitors to not pay a fee because they don't use any services. Do you expect someone from the campground to follow your visitor or keep an eye on them to make sure they don't/didn't use the services? Where will they recoup the costs of dedicating someone to do that? Would you even appreciate being kept an eye on while you have a visitor? How else do you expect a campground to know that your visitor(s) did not use any services while someone else's visitor(s) did?

RE: Falling Waters RV Park Closed?

Awesome for a stop over on the way south. In addition, if you need a tech while there, get a card for the RV Doctor from the office. Very honest guy.

RE: Walmart and other over night stays.

The only thing you need to keep in mind when overnighting at a Wal-Mart, or anywhere else for that matter, is the lack of rules. If buddy parked beside you wakes at 4am and decides to run his generator to make his coffee, nuke some breakfast and watch whatever might be on tv at that time for a couple of hours, there is not a lick you or anyone else can do about it. To me, it's the only negative about it. I've Wal-Marted and Crocker-Barrelled fairly often.

RE: Sale of Canadian Registered RV in USA

I guess I wonder about your declaration when crossing from Canada to the USA, where you state you are not bringing anything into the USA that you will be leaving there. We cross 2-3 times a week and have never been asked that question. I can not remember ever having to state what we are leaving in the US in all the years we've been crossing back and forth. I guess it depends on where you cross. This is covered in the "Anything to declare?" question I get asked every time I cross. But, I do cross at the same crossing every time.

RE: Taking a trip from Ottawa, ON to Myrtle Beach route help ?

Personally, to go from Allentown to VA beach, you wouldn't catch me on the 95 through Baltimore and DC. Take your scenic route and cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. I've never been myself, but I plan on it someday.

RE: Pirateland, Myrtle Beach

Watch out you don't get run over by a golf cart. Yep, golf cart heaven. Get used to golf carts rolling by your site blaring all types of music. Seems to be the resident thing to do to show off how "awesome" their cart is to all the visitors. Want to rent one from the campground, you'll pay more than renting an economy car from a car rental place. No joke. The pool and new splash pad are quite a walk from the beach. If you're close to one, you've got a way to go to get to the other. Other than that, it's not a bad place. Oceanside sites are tighter than the interior spots and are wide open, the only shade being under the canopy built on the site and your awning. The beach is awesome and, if they haven't changed the rules since we've been, they allow dogs on the beach.

RE: Medical Insurance for RVer while in Mexico

The Mexican medical care facilities are state of the art. The costs are very reasonable compared to what Is charged in the rest of North America. From what We have experienced, we would have no problem without having any add on Medical Coverage in Mexico. Pay as We go and submit the paid receipts to Our a Provincial Medical Plan. One important thing though is to separate the pharmaceutical portion from the Medical Bill and submit it to Our Pharmacare plan for reimbursement. This worked fine a couple of Years ago when I got Food Poisoning while in San Carlos! Be very careful with this: BC Medical will cover many Out of Province medical costs BUT ONLY reimburse up to the amount that they would pay to BC Hospitals. No where near US costs and less in some cases than costs in some hospitals in Mexico. A Travel Medical policy is the only safe way to go. Note to other Canadians: Out of Province also means travel WITHIN CANADA. Costs for some procedures in other provinces may not be covered. Nor will be repatriation cost for you to return to BC from another province or country. If due to a car accident in Canada or USA, ICBC insurance will cover medical costs and sometimes repatriation. Really need to pay attention to this right here. This is pretty standard with all the Provincial plans. If something would cost $1000 in your home Province to get fixed but costs $2000 where you're visiting, regardless of whether you're in another Canadian Province or the US, you're on the hook for the extra $1000.

RE: roadside assistance/towing

I count on Coach-Net and wouldn't on Good Sam. That's just me. You'll find supporters for Good Sam here too.

RE: I don't know much about workamping but....

Just curious... I know there is or may be complications with Canadians workamping in the US. Is anyone aware of potential complications of an American or Canadian workamping in Mexico?

RE: I don't know much about workamping but....

If it were me, a workamper opportunity in Mexico, depending on the amenities of your park, I'd expect a swarm of applicants the instant you put it up on sites. If I were in position to (hopefully you'll have an ad up in 11 years!), I'd certainly apply as soon as I saw it, even if it were still summer.

RE: Favorite "kid friendly" campground in Myrtle Beach ?

I can only comment about Pirate land which we did NOT like. The pool was extremely over crowded and just a big rectangle (no slide or anything to do) The lazy river was OK and the kids (8 and 11) were bored after about an 1 hour. We had a site 6 spots from the water, nice to be close to the beach, but very tight (but we knew that before we arrived).. Honestly no one (employees) were friendly. Too much going on I guess being the second week in July. The golf cart parade every night on the main drag along the beach was incredibly annoying and dangerous for all (spectators and drivers) The entire 4 days were just too hectic and crazy in that campground for us. Maybe they are all the same in July.. Finally someone who sees Pirateland, specifically the golf cart "parade", like I do. Won't be back. MBTP for me, thanks.

RE: From Pa. to the Florida Keys

Thank you everyone for all the info. We are new to this we have a 5th wheel we bought last year. We are from the Harrisburg area and have just been camping locally. But my wife wants to go to Florida for next winter. Not sure how far we will be driving each day, maybe about 400 miles. I had a GMC 1500 but just traded it for a new Chevy 2500HD. When we went to Myrtle Beach to play golf a couple of times I always went down 15 to 95. But I dont think I want to haul the 5th wheel on 15. That's the way you'd take to get to Myrtle Beach. However, to get down to Florida, you'll want the 81 to 77 to 26 to 95. Much less stressful drive and more scenic, especially through Fancy Gap. We used to go down the 95 the Harrisburg/Baltimore/DC way until the first time we went to 77. That's the way we'll take from now on. No problem with traffic around Charlotte using the 485 bypass. I use the 81/66/17/95 to Myrtle Beach, but still not to Florida. I avoid as much of the 95 as I can.

RE: Toronto to Orlando, FL

The mountains down the 77 are too beautiful to pass up, IMO.

RE: How to spend money in Canada

Depending on the fees you incur by using a debit card, instead of using an ATM, make a purchase at a Wal-Mart and use the cash back while paying using the debit card.

RE: concerns about atlantic provinces

The statement that no one in Quebec will talk English to you is nothing but another myth. If the person cannot speak English, they will make every attempt to find someone who can.Then we must have been in the wrong towns, because we got the "no English" treatment a couple of times at small towns in Quebec, when we stopped to eat. Oh it happens, not doubting it in the least. Quite frankly, I can speak both languages fluently, but you'll rarely hear me speaking French, even in Quebec. You can get a true sense of a business and the person serving you when they don't think you can understand them when they speak to each other in a language they don't think you know. I've walked out of a couple of places, but can hardly apply the experience across the entire Province. One should be able to function well enough using English only.
