RE: Gas Prices in Canada for US travellers

It's strange how much gas prices vary, even within the same region here. Here in Ottawa, today our gas prices can be found in the high 60's and low 70's per liter. Where, in Kingston, just an hour and a half or so away, prices are still in the 90's.

RE: Gassing Up

I've never had an issue with my 35 foot gasser towing. You'd be surprised how well you can maneuver around, it's all about your comfort level. Most gas stations are well oriented for a good in/out in at least one of their lanes. I don't spend any time pre-planning gas stops, I stop when I need to.

RE: looking for a CG recommendation near Disney World

OP already has his reservation, but we enjoyed the Orlando/Fort Summit KOA in Davenport when we were there. Free shuttle to/from Disney with one drop off and 2 pick-up times.

RE: Temporary Winterizing in North Florida

Ok, now I'm assuming that you are living inside the unit at the time. If so, then your water lines are fine. You should check, but I'm fairly certain that your holding tank and water compartment is heated when you use the furnace. If you are inside, you will be using the furnace, right? If that's the case, then I would disconnect the water line, put a decent amount of water in your water tank, since you can use the water pump when you need to potty during the freeze or have a shower when you wake up, and then hook the hose back up when everything is back to normal. I don't see a need to winterize anything.

RE: Best route to Nova Scotia from Toronto

I've done this trip 4 times. Only once with a MH. All times I stayed in Canada. That being said, when I return, I'll go state-side as long as I can. Once you hit the Ontario/Quebec border, the price of gas just keeps going up. If you stay on our side, just make sure you fill up before you get outside of Ontario because you don't want to get stuck paying Montreal prices if you're running on empty. Eek. There is some really nice scenery once you hit the hills in NB, though.

RE: Can You Buy Coach Net Before You Buy an RV

Also keep in mind that you're not insuring your RV or your cars per say, but yourself and another party in your household, such as your spouse. This means that you can be in any RV or car, no matter who it might belong to and have the same coverage, as if in your own vehicle. Not just ANOTHER person in your household like a spouse, but also dependent children under 24. This, however, only comes with the Premier Coach coverage. The 2 other lesser plans (Limited and Basic) DO NOT come with "All-Inclusive Coverage", thus only you are covered with the lesser 2 plans.

RE: Can You Buy Coach Net Before You Buy an RV

I have been with coach net for several years and I never had to provide any VIN ? You don't have to, but it doesn't hurt. Easy to do when you log in online.

RE: Have you bought a ten year old or older rv?

I bought my '99 five years ago.

RE: Key west Fla.

I believe there are a number of Shell Worlds all the way down to Key West.

RE: Key west Fla.

The trolley tour around Key West was pretty good too.

RE: Key west Fla.

Parasailing in Key West is incredible. Turquoise water all around, just an awesome view.

RE: Showering with 10 gallon water heater

4 of us can shower with a 6 gallon WH and have no problems. How in the world do you fit that many people into that tiny shower? Had to know that was coming....

RE: Sealed Underbelly

#1. If it's brand new, I certainly would expect them to fix it up as such. #2. Anything black tank related would never see my lips get close enough to it to blow into.

RE: RV Antifreeze or Regular Antifreeze

Regular antifreeze can't be just dumped through a dump station or in a park's sewer system. You could face the same penalty as if you are caught dumping the antifreeze in the sewer in front of your house. You're going to need to dump into a container and dispose of properly. Hope there weren't any "leftovers" in your tanks before you put the antifreeze in.

RE: Campfire stories

Well, I never really believed in ghosts and have never seen one myself. However, when dad was ill and mostly bedridden, we moved in to help mom take care of him. Every night, my little Boston Terrier would go see dad with his tennis ball. Dad had a straight shot from the room into the hallway, so he'd toss the ball down the hallway, dog would chase it and bring it back. He'd do this for 10 minutes or so. Every night. After dad passed away, dog still went upstairs for a couple of weeks, and still heard him running into the room, then out to the hallway, sliding around for the same amount of time back and forth. We never bothered him, but I'm sure he wasn't up there playing all by himself.

RE: Motorhome driver sentenced in fatal accident

Really a shame. Really. Doesn't even sound like a slap on the wrist to me.

RE: Where Are All The Canadians?

To be honest, I think the weather here might be playing a big part. At least in Ontario. It's been unseasonably warm thus far, maybe the 'need' to leave hasn't hit yet.

RE: Sault Ste Marie area campgrounds

Just brace yourself for sticker shock. The campground cost up here, even Provincial Parks, is significantly more expensive than similar campgrounds south of the border. The exchange rate, if it doesn't change much, will offset a lot of that, though.

RE: French fries... Yes , I said french fries.

Poutine, shmootine, whatever... . They should just leave the dang fries alone, lol. You aren't serious are you....:@ http://media.nola.com/diningguide_impact/photo/8988644-large.jpg Looks like Canada's version of nachos. That's one of the most horrible poutines I have ever seen. doesn't even look like cheese curds and, if so, they got real cheap on them. Fries dipped in mayo are awesome, but I like any kind of buffalo sauce better. Best fries I've had in the US were at Chili's.

RE: Looking for Workamping/Work Opportunities

The only thing that can really be said is that I don't believe employers look around for employees. They'll make a post here and there advertising the opportunity and have the potential employees go to them. You're the one who is going to have to do the leg work, seek out the opportunities you like and apply to them.
