RE: Solar charger but still dead batteries

Wen my RVs are I storage the solar panels do nothing. The roof stops sun from getting to the solar panels.

RE: Another gasser question

I had a '03 Mountain Aire 3778 that was 38' and had the 8.1L Workhorse W22 chassis. I had 90 gal. fresh water and 55 each in the 2 holding tanks. That would allow us to go for a week with daily showers and no dumping or refilling. It had no problem towing my PT ad then my Saturn Vue.

RE: ? 4 Roadtrek owners

I have a 95 190P with the 318. It has OD with a button on the dash to lock it out. It has one great on hills and I average 16-17 mpg. Mine only has 92,000 miles and I don't have to add oil between changes.

RE: 2005 Holiday Rambler M 33PBD opinions

The auto-park was not part of the W22 chassis. I had a '03 Mountain aire W-22 and it was great.

RE: WH Chassis ride height

I would look for a broken leaf in the spring. That would be an easy repair for a spring shop. I have the complete set of W22 service manuals downstairs in one file drawer and now I don't own the Newmar anymore.

RE: forced winter camping sucks!

I don't know about Canada but I just reviewed my HO insurance this morning. I have replacement coverage on my appliances. That adds $20 to the premium. I have extra for computers and that is another $20. I also have protection for water damage for extra charge. You just have to specify what you want and be willing to pay for it

RE: Sault Ste Marie

Definitely go up the West side of Michigan for the best views of Lake Michigan. Our shore is sand dunes most of the way and easy to get to most places. Sleeping Bear Dunes is a great visit. Holland has Dutch Heritage and a State Park with full hookups, Grand Haven is Coast Guard City, Muskegon, and all the way up. Campgrounds are all along the way. At Mackinac City or St. Ignace you can take a ferry to Mackinac Island. Antlers restaurant is the one in Sault Ste. Marie, MI. and the Aunie Osburn CG is just down the road. Take a ride through the Soo Locks and see and learn about Great Lakes Shipping. In Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario you should ride the Agawa Canyon train. You will go up where there are no roads and then back. It is a great, all day ride. They do stop, for people who have cabins along the way, to drop off or pick up. If you go East Sudbury has Science North and the largest nickel. Have a great time.

RE: campgrounds near Toronto

You definitely need to find out where in Toronto your son is located. Toronto is spread out and can take an hour to go through in good times and hours at rush hour. I have relatives who live there and 1 1/2 hr from one to another is nothing.

RE: Canadian Travel

Some points accept the cards and some don't. It's not a federal agreement on either side but agreement between states and provinces, so the rules vary across the country. Easier to just get a passport, the hardest part is the little picture ;-) Should something happen and you needed to fly back home, you won't be able to without a passport. I don't think you can cross anywhere with a birth certificate any more. Certainly not WA/BC. I've never found customs to be a problem either way as long as you are cooperative and follow the rules....and I cross multiple times each year. The US Government issues the passport cards and they are accepted at border crossings to Canada and Mexico. They are good at all crossings in an auto but not a plane.

RE: Winshield protection ClearPlex - Anyone tried it?

In the US there are laws about putting things on windshields. You probably have those in Canada also.

RE: Cupboard space

I live in a condo and when my wife was alive she always said she had a bigger kitchen in the Motorhome than the condo. That was a 3778 Newmar Mountain Aire. Move to a small condo and you kitchen in the MH will grow in comparison.

RE: Sault Ste Marie

RE: Canadian Travel

For driving to Canada the passport card works fine. You can't use it for air travel. With the great exchange rate on Canadian Money you will find Canada is on sale this year.

RE: Class B cookware

Who said you need to cook in a B? I used mine 35 nights last year and the only thing I needed was the microwave to heat up a few leftovers from the precious day restaurant meals. Cooking for 1 stinks and I hate doing dishes.

RE: Opinions on Class A Quality

I have had 7 motorhomes over the years with 2 Fleetwoods and a Newmar. The Newmar was definitely the highest quality. My current older Roadtrek is also that type of quality. My Newmar was a 2003 that we had 11 years. The only reason for selling it was the death of my wife and my inability to climb the 6 steps up into it. I just refuse to give up travelling in my RV and now have 1 step up for both of them.

RE: More interested in renewing than service

My only problem would have been staying in a hotel for 2 nights and not getting back home in a reasonable time. As it went I was half way home to Mich by Monday afternoon.

RE: not "good" and very little "assistance"

Except for the fact you had a male answer the phone I must have had his twin sister on my call. She could not understand where we were and only wanted me to renew. I called on Halloween early evening but was fortunate enough to get off I 75. I could idle but died when ever I stepped on the accelerator. Likewise GS has called me and is talking about it and also checking where the check for the small bit they say they are paying has gone. If nothing ore happens I see no use in carrying GSRA if I have to pay my own bill anyway.

RE: RV Newb In Need of Advice

One additional thing I thought of is. Are you thinking a short trailer is easier to back up when parking? That is totally incorrect. I learned from boats and then found it true of TTs also. The shorter the trailer the more difficult to back up.

RE: Canadian Class A sales and the Loony

This is the year that Canada is on SAlE. I am thinking of going to Newfoundland for the bargain prices this summer. I always have a couple hundred Canadian dollars so I can start a trip any time. That is depreciating faster than the mutual funds here in the US.

More interested in renewing than service

I was taking my 1975 GMC Eleganza II to Orlando to get some work done on it but broke down in Lake City, Fl @ I-75. I called GS. This was on Halloween evening (a Sat.) The operator wanted to tow me to a dealer 3 miles away because they service GM products. I tried to explain this is a TZE chassis that is 41 years old and there just isn't that much service available on them. She insisted they could service it because it is GM. I would have been taken to a closed dealer and waited until Monday morning before I would probably be told they could not do anything to it. Both Holland Motor Homes and a local mechanic who works on the antique cars for the local clubs had done the limits they were capable of. I ended up paying $819. to be towed to Orlando and now GS wants to pay ne $200. and some odd dollars as a good will settlement I am still waiting for that check to arrive in the mail. In my mind it should be called Good Sam roadside non-assistance. It didn't renew when it expired 12-26.
