RE: Health Insurance options

Medicare Plan F is the best plan. There is also a high deductible plan F that is considerably less in premium. The deductible is set each year by Medicare. For a relatively healthy person the HD F makes a lot of sense.

RE: A Little Help from Canada Peeps

If Niagara is a little too far try Sault Ste. Marie with the Algoma Central train ride, then take the Soo Locks boat tour, South to Mich. for Mackinac Island and the W. to Tahquamenon Falls. A little farther W. is Munising with the Pictured Rocks nat. seashore.

RE: Health Insurance options

What is your age? Are you covered by Medicare? If so What do you have for a Medicare supplement? What state do you live in? An insurance agent.

RE: What is a reasonable maintenance wait time

With all that time at the dealer and unusable you should get an extension of the warranty. Thor is getting a huge break in their warranty time when it sits at the dealer waiting.

RE: What's the problem with radiator price for Motorhome?

I have a cousin in Canada who is a plumber and he claims the new copper plumbing is much thinner walls than old copper lines.

RE: Ice makers??

I had a stand alone ice maker in my Mountain Aire and thought it would be great because we use it all the time at home. If you travel and get water along the way you can get some strange tasting ice. After the second time with rotten ice I gave up and bought bags of tasteless ice. It also one less thing to winterize.

RE: Is it really too far to walk to the bathroom at a rest area?

Shortly after I had my prostate removed I was driving the car home from Detroit on back roads when I got that urge. I knew there was a small park with pit toilets and I made it there. The walls go down to about 2' from the ground so there is a lot of ventilation. I was in the proper place but there was so much wind that day that it didn't go down but blew up all over me. I knew it was mine but I sure took a good shower as soon as I got home and threw all the clothes into the washer.

RE: Considering purchase of 2004 Jayco Grewhawk

Put the money you would waste on the service an in the bank and if any is needed for repairs use that money. If not needed you can then spend it on more gas.

RE: Generator and Ethanol

I use the generators on both of my MHs. Check their age below 20&40.

RE: Newmar Dutch Star v Entegra Aspire v Forest River Charleston

I just sold my Mountain Are 2 months ago and really hate to part with it. I could not do the 6 steps up get in it. It was the best coach we ever had and we have had many since '69. If I could get into a Newmar I would still have it.

RE: Ontario Hwy 144 Construction

Take lots of mosquito repellant for Wawa. I was there a couple weeks ago and never saw such thick supply. If you just clapped your hands together for no reason you killed 3-4 every time.

RE: Question From a Really Big Guy Maybe You Can Answer

Thetford makes risers for some of their toilet models. My DW had 3 knee replacements and liked the higher thrones. We did that for a previous Pace Arrow. She only had 2 legs but wore one out in 10 years.

RE: Chicago to Upper state New York and beyond questions....

If you record your I Pass correctly you only need one of them in the MH and keep the one in the car from registering. Your toad will automatically go with the MH.

RE: 20 foot 1975 Argosy Motorhome

When you buy something that old you should expect a certain amount for repairs just on age alone. I paid $10K for my '75 GMC and fully expect another 10K to get it in shape. It only has 55K and that appears correct. 16.5" tires meant $1500 for new wheels and $1100 for new Michelin tires (FMCA Advantage), $1700 for a thorough checkup at Holland Motor Homes and now needing replacement of front bearings & carb rebuild. Then I can start on the 40 yr. old interior. Fortunately I have the '95 Roadtrek to use during the service times.

RE: Chicago to Upper state New York and beyond questions....

On my trip earlier this month I was on Hwy 17, west of Wawa and saw 2 moose grazing by the side of the road and 1 bear ran across in front of me. You won't get there on your trip but they do exist.

RE: Chicago to Upper state New York and beyond questions....

Unless you are really into toll roads I would suggest a different route. I have my own I-Pass so know about them. Once you et into Michigan take I-94 to Benton Harbor area and then I-196 toward Grand Rapids. When near Grand Rapids take M6 toward Lansing and I-96. Lansing has a few interesting th9ings to do also. Take I-69 from Lansing to Port Huron, MI./Sarnia, Ontario and the Blue Water Bridge. It is an easy crossing and you will be on 402 to the 401 in London, Ontario and then to the 403 that will take you to Niagara Falls. As you are going through Flint, MI. you can take a short trip up to Frankenmuth, MI. for the famous chicken dinners and Bronner's Christmas store. Those roads in MI. are not the ones you hear about that are so bad. I just did all of those roads in the past 6 weeks, including the Canadian ones, and they are all good. Detroit area has the bad roads. The heavy traffic on I-94 makes it also not as good but you would only be on I-94 for 28 miles and most of that has been redone already. Since the best view of the falls is from the Canadian side I would also recommend you stay on that side for a day or 2 and then move to the US side. While on the Canadian side take a side trip to Niagara on the Lake. The Shaw festival should be going on while you are there. It is a great little town for toads but not RVs. You could take a trip to downtown Toronto on the train from Niagara and see the sights there also. The public transportation is great in Toronto. There is a great small bakery in Strathroy, (off 402) that has great butter tarts. When I need Canadian money I use an ATM and get the exchange rate immediately. 2 weeks ago it cost me $243. US for $300. Canadian. 3 weeks before that it wasn't quite that good. If you fill the MH & toad in Port Huron you can make it through Canada without buying any of their expensive gas. If you are into beers keep in mind that Grand Rapids is Beer City with all the micro breweries there. Downtown has the Gerald Ford Museum and a lot of other interesting places. I just had 7 children to the Grand Rapids Public Museum that is across the street from the Ford museum. Enjoy your trip

RE: Speed Limits in Canada

Canada is metric (sometimes) Going through Toronto I saw a sign for 1400 sq. ft. house for only $450K. Built with 2X4s and 4X8 sheets of drywall and paneling. Kg in food stores usually have price per lb. listed also. Lb. prices are a lot less with 2.2 lb. per Kg. I don't know where the idea of going 110 kph is safe. Most drivers I saw were going well over that and don't care if they are passing on double yellow lines.

RE: A Little Help from Canada Peeps

S8nce they built the new highway around the top of Lake Superior forget about seeing the lake. I just did that trip last month. From Thunder Bay to Wawa you will only get a view of the Lake from going to the small towns that are on the lake. Hwy 17 is a nice 2 lane road with very few spots to pull off for anything. Truckers are going 120 KPH and you don't dare try to slow down. I slowed up for a black bear crossing in front of me and thought the truck behind was going to get in the motorhome with me. Sudbury has Science North and is interesting. Petawawa has CFB Petawawa and a military museum that is good. They also have a campground open to the public by the Ottawa River. From Sudbury you can go South to Toronto, Niagara and area. If you want to be near the Great Lakes go through MN, Wi, MI, where you get pulloffs to see something.

RE: Air conditioner struggling

Do you have a way to tell the voltage on the line. If it is hot and all the others are running their ACs voltage could drop in the park. I have a small voltage meter that just stays in an outlet at all times so I know the voltage inside the MHs.

RE: leveling gear alarm while driving

If you take the jack to a hydraulic place (not a RV dealer) they can usually repair a jack.
