RE: What to Buy in US (Everett WA) Before Crossing into Canada

I see nothing open in Dawson in the way of a truck stop. I see a Canadian Tire...go there. The washrooms will be in-store and open. Get some water jugs and some rubber hose...fill them in the washroom...tell staff you are in trouble, etc and will clean up a wet floor. Toss some RV antifreeze down the sink and toilet...get some into the tanks...right? Gary Haupt

RE: Convert to tankless?

I appreciate everyone telling me that basically my wife needs to "tough it out" and deal with navy showers, but I'm saying that if that's the case we are not going on any trips and we are selling the RV. My wife isn't the "roughing it" kind of woman, she has long hair and takes time with her appearance. One of the reasons we got a motor home instead of a trailer is that it makes the trip easier. I don't view installing a tankless system as being a big problem, if it makes her ok with the RV then it is well worth it. That being said, I will investigate that the system is working properly before switching over. I shower just fine without shutting hot water off at all! And you are not alone. My partner, she of long red hair and a lady that has to do her 'face' before anything else, is a case in point. The thing is, for us, is that she loves being out in the RV, so making it work, was a great motivator. The Navy shower thing she decided if that was had to happen? She would do that. Hair...well, that is truly a 'red-line' for us. We boondock all..ALL.. the time, so this is our deal. If we are off in the weeds, she will go three days without doing her hair. Then..it's hair day, she still does the Navy shower thing, to ensure hot water. (At home..let her try the hot water on steady and see where it ends.) And then we are off to replenish the water tank. Wouldn't be the first time I was dumping and refilling..showering and hair and then refilling all in the same spot, too (moving out of the way off course). Gary Haupt

RE: Convert to tankless?

There is only one way to maintain a steady supply of hot water...water on to wet then off..soap up...water back on to rinse. That is what is called a Navy shower. If she has long hair? That's a whole 'nother joy, right there. You don't have to actually turn water right off at the head...just turn it down to dribble. The pump noise will drive you nuts tho. Gary Haupt

RE: Ever want to go to London?

All I wanted to do was firstly, ask for tips as I was on my way to London. And, secondly now...to offer those that want to, a peek at my London pictures. Gary

RE: Question for any Brits in the crowd

Thanks WANNABE...I have been told about Duckford and will go out there Saturday, I believe. Coming in from Heathrow this afternoon on the tube..so many wonderful gardens along the way. Spent this afternoon on the Tower Bridge. I have fours days of Google walking maps laid out...the Churchill War Rooms, Spitalfield Mkt, Bagel Shops and Cadenhead Whiskey Shops. Gary

RE: Question for any Brits in the crowd

This is my first visit. Thanks for the tips...What I am hoping for is an out-of-the-way 'thing'. Gary

Question for any Brits in the crowd

Particularly Londoners. I am over for a week starting Tuesday morning. Staying close to the Tower...asking for any secret spots you would want a visitor to see. I am planning on HMS Belfast, The War Rooms, Spitalfields and Camden Mkts, Cadenshead Whiskey Shop. If you wish to add? Please feel free. Gary Haupt

RE: What to Buy in US (Everett WA) Before Crossing into Canada

Not sure where the B.C. food fear comes from ,in SW ontario where we live, a lot of us grocery shop in detroit weekly.Just dont bring huge volumes of food (like for resale ) for eg. you can only bring a few gallons of milk at a time ..... Yeah..to that fear thing....no one is going get fined or beaten for having some groceries that gets taken. Most of us, at one time or another, have had something seized. I am speaking of fruits, veggies or meats...right? If that happens? The worst you get a steely eyed look..maybe even a lecture. And yes, it may lead to a further inspection. But that can happen anyway. Border crossing is no big deal, even if you do get tossed. Sit back and enjoy it all. Border folks aren't interested in making your day bad....well, unless of course you are stupid and carrying drugs or guns...then you are in for miserable time. This applies to going in either direction, too. Gary Haupt

RE: What to Buy in US (Everett WA) Before Crossing into Canada

I seem to remember there was a long stretch on the Alaska Hwy of nearly 200 kilometers. For sure Alaska might be kind of short on open facilities, so keeping the tank on the upper half is best. In BC tho...stations are open. I was going add this earlier...http://www.drivebc.ca/ Gary Haupt

RE: What to Buy in US (Everett WA) Before Crossing into Canada

One thing not touched on...if a person has a criminal record, they won't be allowed entry. Now..it may be that some criminal activities are more of a concern than others. A good plan? IF you have a past? Call the border before you leave...just to be on the safe side. Gary Haupt

RE: What to Buy in US (Everett WA) Before Crossing into Canada

The processed foods are allowed in Canada, home grown chicken is not, nor is the home grown beef. If you bought it at Cosco it is good to go to Canada, the Canadians come down and buy their food here everyday. The better place to shop is Cosco at Burlington or at Bellingham they are both easier to get to than the Everett ones. Burlington at the George Hopper interchange is the best. It is right by the exit. The Cosco at Bellingham is just off the Guide Meridian Way, easy on and off. "If you bought it at Cosco it is good to go to Canada, the Canadians come down and buy their food here everyday." Even fruits n veggies? I doan tink so. And only 1.4 liters of likker. Or 2 dozen? beer. Gary Haupt

RE: Boondocking tips on the way from Denver to Alaska

Okay...there are NO free overnight camp spots to be found in BC. However, should you want to ask me about your route? I will do my best to find spots for you. But....gimme a break...try and use the info I provide. Gary Haupt

RE: Interesting E450 Problem

To me (a refugee from the Detroit development labs) that this is a real good reason to carry an inexpensive OBDII reader in the tool kit. Matt I'm often surprised how many don't have one. If nothing else, one can clear codes and get along to a shop. Gary Haupt

RE: Windshield replacement...

I think I have 8 or 9 chip repairs on mine. Soon as I get one...into the shop. Now, the OP said from corner, so there is no fixing that. Gary Haupt

RE: Aftermarket Warranties?

Should you opt to buy one...the biggest reason by far that Extended Warranty companies use to decline a claim, is lack of oil changes by approved shops. ie: not you doing one. the quickie lube places are acceptable as are dealer shops. You can do them all you like if you prefer that, but you need to have it done by a shop, then scoot home and re-do it. Gary Haupt

RE: Mojave National Preserve

Except for the two organized cap grounds..the whole of the Preserve is open to boondocking. If you were to turn into the Preserve from any highway...onto a paved road...from that point on-wards...it's all yours to enjoy. Perhaps I should add that I worked there for the NPS for 10 weeks. Gary Haupt
