RE: Credit card/cash questions for travel in Canada

A week after introducing the new plastic bills the banks called business owners in to explain how to detect counterfeit bills. I went to Northern Credit Union yesterday in Petawawa, Ontario and got $300.00 in $20s The cost to my US account was $229.46. That was a good exchange I think. I would have preferred a couple of $50s but $20s spend as well.

RE: 12 available in house ONLY when the motor is running

First guess is that you have polarity wrong someplace in that system. Batteries, inverter, ?. Polarity should be the same from chassis and house batteries.

RE: Credit card/cash questions for travel in Canada

I am in Ontario right now. I have found my best way to get cash is from a Credit Union. I get the exchange rate and no extra charge. I have Visa & Master Card that do not have foreign fees also. AAA in MI just came out with one with no foreign fee and the Sam's Club Master Card just announced they have no more foreign fees. Even though a store has Discover on their door they may not get it approved. Been there done that

RE: Who knows 90's Southwind floorplans/models?

we had a pace arrow the BED you describe is common for ALL MHs with NO bedroom slide and rear walk around bed our pace had a tub and shower on the drivers side with out pictures, IDK if your looking at glass shower doors or a mirrored closet those on a P30/workhorse chassis, did not go longer than 32ft, unless the chassis was extended and a third axle attached I had a 1996,35' Pace Arrow on the P30 and the chassis did not have a tag axle. Workhorse was not in the picture until 2000. I did have the Vortec in mine.

RE: Medical insurance through Canada

Now I understand why folks from the lower 48 drive like demons, not stopping to sniff the dandelions in BC and or Alberta. No health insurance. Drive really fast..make sure no time to have things go bad. Gary Haupt I beg to differ here. I just came from Michigan to Ontario yesterday and find that speed limits mean nothing here. I have not seen a police car since getting here. I make this trip a couple times a year so this is not a new experience. That explains why the Canadian license plates don't obey our Michigan speed limits either.

RE: Batteries-Don't understand

The 3-5 days that you could run the frig are the problem. You are getting the battery lower than they like. The frig will put out heat from a weak battery but it is also killing your battery a little every time you run it that low.

RE: Diesel or Gas? Resale value

I don't know the weight of the things you need to haul around but you will find that a gasser has a lot less carrying capacity than the DPs. Last year I sold my '03 Mountain Aire that was in excellent condition for les than the $34,000. It had 43K miles on it. One of the huge reasons for a Newmar is that there can be no delamination on them because they do not have laminated walls. It was also time for new tires at $3000. That is someth9ng to consider on used MHs. My gas Newmar had a limited carrying capacity that was no problem for us but could be with a child and full load of instruments.

RE: Medical insurance through Canada

Medicare does not have any foreign coverage. If you have a med-sup you may have it. Plans A& B do not have any foreign coverage. Since I am in Canada at the moment I can't go to my desk and look up the details on each plan. I usually sell plan F or a High Ded F for most of my clients.

RE: Batteries-Don't understand

He could have a 3 way ref. I have one in my '95 Roadtrek and it will run on 12V fine while driving but goes down fast when stopped.

RE: looking at 06 Gulfstream Independence

That sounds like a Workhorse chassis with the 6 speed Allison Trans. It will have a grade brake that will downshift with a tap of the brake pedal for engine braking. It also has 2 overdrive positions. Great setup.

RE: 1995 Winnebage Vectra 33RQ with FORD 460???

As far as the panels not giving readings of the tanks. That is very normal on most older vehicles.

RE: "The Long, Long Trailer" Score!

When I got my first TT I 1969 I had the option of the dolly wheel or the equalizing hitch. We had a '69 Lincoln and used the equalizing hitch. We also had a New Moon 55' that we lived in early in our married life.

RE: Air conditioner freezing up question

The compressor runs at only one speed and gets the coils cold. Moving more air over them will keep the coils less likely to ice up. In high humidity this can be a problem but low humidity it may not be a problem on any setting.

RE: Do you tow with your B?

Mine is only 19' and I will park in handicap spots if there is room. If not I will park in the far end of the lot and use my electric Travelscoot to go shopping. My only problem with that is the small tray to hold purchases.

RE: Just wondering....

I am 77 and still comfortable driving. After flying to Atlanta for a Granddaughter's graduation this weekend I am looking forward to a Motorhome trip in another week. I did downsize from a 38' Mountain Aire to smaller but still go.

RE: Go cheap or not ???

If there is a chance you will be in cold weather in the motorhome I really suggest Newmar. If you go back through their older brochures you will find they list the R values for insulation in walls, ceiling & floors. I had my '03 Moutain Aire for 11 years and miss it now but the 6 steps up were my problem. If you join FMCA you will get a great deal on Michelin tires. I bought 6 for my GMC last year and the price could not be beat by anyone around here.

RE: Ford Triton and GM 8.1

In addition to better materials used in the construction I would give credit to the newer oils used in lubrication. I just gave my 2008 Saturn 2.4L to a granddaughter with 116,000 miles and it has never used oil between oil changes every 10,000 miles.

RE: Is a lift the answer?

You have the main reason I bought my GMC MH. I had a problem with the 6 steps on my Mountain Aire and found the GMC which has only 1 step up to get inside the MH. With front wheel drive it has a totally flat floor front to rear but you do have 3 steps to get to the driver's seat.

RE: Dometic Fridge Hard to Regulate when Traveling

If you don't have the manual from the manufacturer just get your model from the plate in the refrig, go on line and download the manual. It will give all the details on how to clean the burner. Sometimes a thermocouple will go bad also. That is the thing that sits in the flame and tells the gas valve to stay open.

RE: Looking To Get Roadside Coverage

I had Good Sam and while taking my 1975 GMC to Florida last Halloween I needed a tow on a Saturday night. They wanted to take me to a GM dealer 3 miles from where I was. I tried to tell the woman that a GM dealer know nothing about a 41 year old motorhome. Most of the time was spent trying to get me to renew my plan. I got $275. from them towards the $819.00 tow and did not renew. AAA plus RV covers much better with up to 200 miles of towing. I only had 165 miles of tow.
