RE: New RV park, just south of manzanillo

The picture on their website shows them on the beach but the Lat Lon coordinates are several blocks from the beach - at least that is what I see on Google Earth. Maybe their numbers are off? Must be off. Their photos show them 7 blocks up right on the beach. On google maps you can see the pad that's on the corner of the lot where the MH is pictured on the blog. More like 18.919076, -104.072298

RE: Rv park reviews

rvparkreviews.com is my first resource when planning out stops at new (to me) campgrounds and parks.

RE: niagara falls

We liked staying at the KOA in Medina (Wildwood Lake) when visiting the US side of the Falls.

RE: When to Dump??

Before I bring it back home, if the tanks aren't full, I'll fill them both and dump them.

RE: My Experience re. shipping to Canada

Hi, Let's suppose you live in Edmonton. To pick up a parcel in Montana would require a road trip of 8 hours one way. But I live in Regina, so it is only 2 hours one way. Personally I can't drive for 4 hours round trip to save $50. If you only do it for that, then no it doesn't make sense. However, if you combine it with a whole bunch of groceries and some clothes shopping, you'll up those savings considerably.

RE: My Experience re. shipping to Canada

Luckily, there is a UPS store in Ogdensburg, NY, a 40 minute or so drive away, that will accept and hold packages for you for a small fee. Considering I do quite a bit of online shopping, I've saved quite a bit on these brokerage fees and Canada Post charges.

RE: LT vs ST's - Canadian Tires cries "Illegal!".

There really isn't anything I would trust Canadian Tire with in the first place.

RE: Full-Timing...what's your opinion...

We can't wait to get to fulltiming. My main reason is something that a lot of you don't need to concern yourselves with... the godforsaken Canadian winter. Seriously... I've had more than enough and I got a little over 11 years still to go. Please, let me hit the lottery soon!! I don't see a need to maintain a home here when I'll be away for 5-6 months of the year. If I can live in a MH down in Florida/Texas/Arizona/wherever for 6 months in the US, I can do so the remaining months up here once that crummy white******is gone.

RE: backing up your toad

Yes, to my knowledge SDcamp and Westernrvpark are not the same. I don't recall seeing anything from SDcamp that would lead me to believe I wouldn't want to try his camp, but Westernrvpark however....

RE: Number Of Hours?

For me, it would depend on the value and location of the site. Not too many places I would work a 40 hour work week for a freebie site. But Bluewater Key would likely be one, for example. There would have to be some kind of WOW factor for me to, essentially, work full time hours for it. For a site that would cost be something like $500-$600/month out of pocket, nope... I value my free time at more than that.

RE: We backed out of the deal

Good move. He was angry because he thought he had you and was rid of it.

RE: RV Parks

I wonder if some places have that rule on the books but choose when to enforce it. I think that's the entire point of it. If the rig looks like junk, it won't be allowed in "because it's over 10 years old." But the unit right behind it can look almost new but be 15 years old and they'll get in no problem. They don't want their campground to look like a junk yard.

RE: WiFi available, Canada

I am Canadian and will have the same dilemma when I travel to AZ next Feb.....I have cellular internet here in Canada, which I can take in the camper. Roaming to the US will cost too much. Am going to ask my provider (Rogers) if they have something for me without having to remortgage the house You can stop at Wal-Mart once you cross the border and grab a Verizon hot spot and top up card. We got the hot spot there during Black Friday for dirt cheap. Works great!

RE: Are my turn signals invisible?

Sometimes us "idiots" have to force the issue in response to a traffic directive such as a lane closure when no one will give us room to maneuver. I've generally found OTR truck drivers to be the most considerate in those circumstances. I agree. I seem to remember an incident in Nashville a few months back where the driver of the Class A said that he was not able to switch lanes, because no other vehicle would "let" him in. A young Nashville police lost his life in that case because the RV driver did not force the issue when changing lanes. That is just BS. Had nothing to do with no one letting him over, he went barrelling around a blind corner that said one lane closed and there were 2 lanes closed. He had nowhere to go because the one lane was jacked and he couldn't stop. I guess he was supposed to force the issue and barrel through a few cars...

RE: Are my turn signals invisible?

Sorry, but I'm seeing a lot of poor attitudes here behind the wheel of an RV. Regardless of what the driver is doing in the fast lane, you DO NOT have right of way when changing lanes... they do. They do not have to give way to you, or "let" you in. Idiots force the issue as they don't want to lose momentum... well, the other driver doesn't want to lose momentum by getting stuck behind a billboard when they have the right of way. And people wonder why sometimes RV drivers get a bad rap or people think that we should absolutely have to get a special license to drive one. Just maybe A person just doesn't want put it into reverse at a merge. Many times people just won't let you take your turn so you move over slowly and usually they let you in. Look at the truck drivers they have to do it also It doesn't matter what a person wants. When you don't have right of way, you don't have right of way, whether you want it or not. Try to press the issue if you want, as long as you understand that, if there is a collision because the person not letting you in is just as stubborn as you are, you are the one switching lanes so you are the one at fault. Forcing someone to let you in is aggressive driving... aggressive driving in a 20000+lb machine is just not smart.

RE: The ideal GPS route

I honestly don't get the big deal. I love my lane assist when travelling on roads I've never been on before, even if it's telling me to stay straight. Mount it somewhere it's not out of the way and it's just as easy to shoot a glance at it as it is to shoot a glace at your mirrors. Do people "worry" about having to check their mirrors?

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...
