RE: BC Residents only

I've been wondering about this very topic .....snip. It's a tough call, .....snip Gary Hey Gary, I was out on my side X side on Thursday between rain storms and I was way up a logging road when I ran into a BC Natural Resource Officer. After he checked me out for proof of insurance on the sxs, make sure we weren’t drinking alcohol, if we had helmets ( we were stopped having lunch at the time), we got to talking about camping in the bush this summer with issues around BC parks campgrounds/ c-19 etc. He said that they will be doing extensive patrols in the bush this year insuring everybody is following the rules for camping in the bush and following The BC C-19 guidelines / regulations. Now what Laws and regulations they will enforce I can’t tell you but they have really stepped up there presence around here in the Kootenays the last few year and from what this fellow said, they will be more prevalent in the bush in the months to come. It’s going to be a strange summer coming up. Stay safe everyone. Soup. That's interesting and good to know. We always behave on our fishing trip, very respectful of the camping area, clean up everything, including debris from the last 5 campers that left stuff behind and do on. We keep our music low, so it doesnt travel. We have a few drinks, never out of hand or rowdy. We mainly sit around a campfire talking about what hurts and how great we used to be! I just hope that they don't get snarky about my Alberta residency. We have been checked on many times over the past 45 years of fishing trips, never once an issue, and always had a great conversation with the conservation officers. They check our fishing licences, which we always have. Our little aluminum boat has all the safety stuff etc. I just don't want to be sent packing because I'm not a BC resident.

RE: BC Residents only

I've been wondering about this very topic myself, and how things will play out. I have read some conflicting information, depending on the source. A group of us are planning a fishing trip to a lake near Merritt the first weekend in June. Several of us are attending. 2 from Penticton, 1 from OK Falls, 1 from Kelowna, and myself from Alberta.... I'm wondering if I will run into any kind of challenges since i am no longer a BC resident. I used to live in Penticton years ago. Location is a rough, totally unserviced area by a lake, FCFS. Park ranger wanders through and collects a nominal fee based on nights spent. Hope I don't drive all the way from Calgary, only to be turned away.... Could leave the TT home, come out in my car and occupy a spot in a buddy's MH. I prefer my own space though.

RE: If getting 'Service Temporarily Unavailable!'

On a Samsung Android tablet device, swipe down will refresh. That's what I do rather than use the back button and reload. Same thing for my Samsung Galaxy phone. I seldom use my computer, primarily use my tablet to come here.

RE: Sagging springs on 2 yr old TT ??

I would be skeptical too, very skeptical. Arctic Fox is a good brand and known for quality. However, having said that, they don't make the springs themselves, they likely outsource them from who knows where. 2 years old, I would contact Arctic Fox and explain the situation to them and respectfully request input before just going with one shops diagnosis. At the very least, get a second opinion. No way I would just put new springs on a near new trailer.

RE: Steep Driveway

Don’t do the caster wheels on the rear, loading all that trailer weight on a corner is a good way to twist the frame. Trailer frames are not what they used to be. IMO, your fears are unfounded. All our rigs, even our tow vehicles twist and bend while going down the road. This is part of the design. Lifting the back end while going up or down a driveway will have absolutely no harmful effect whatsoever on the TT. None. OP is talking a small amount of lift. And it is done at a very slow speed, and it is only for a few seconds. Traveling down the road hitting heaves and dips in the road puts so much more flexing on the frame and unit as a whole than a minor temporary back end slight lift ever would. Try it some time with a stabilizer jack. Crank one down and then try opening the door. The door will rack if the frame lifts on one corner. This is normal and nothing to fear. Take any pickup truck and run one wheel up on a knoll or something, then get out and have a look. The truck will be visually twisted. Again, it's all built into the design and absolutely nothing to worry about. Caster wheels are a perfect solution and will work fine with no ill effects. And it will work anywhere where there is a steep entrance to a gas station or other places. Yes, the frame can twist, flex and bend. It is designed to do this.

RE: Steep Driveway

Put a set of sturdy caster wheels on the back bumper, in line with the end of the frame where the bumper is welded on. Or just back of the bumper on the frame. When it goes to hit bottom, the wheels will touch and roll, lifting the back up a bit so it doesn't scrape.

RE: Rear Window Pass Through Boot

Could you get a big old inner tube, carefully position it and inflate it?

RE: Covid chores...check-off list

I gave consideration to driving to the storage yard and touching the TT!! Maybe give it a hug, console it a bit, it's getting lonely. Thought maybe I'd apologize to it for the apparent abandonment! While I'm there do the usual visit checks, climb up on the roof etc. Unfortunately, I have nowhere to work on it, and then list is long. I'm sure hoping we get out this year.

RV Storage yard explosion in Calgary kills man

More sad new of another RV'er who lost his life. About 3 miles from from my home there is a storage yard I go to sometimes to pull a friends trailer in and out. Something went wrong there yesterday, an apparent propane explosion in a MH. RV completely totally destroyed and multiple others damaged. In the news article there are some pictures, the video wouldn't open for me as my ad blocker did its job. I drove by there a couple hours ago and saw it was a later model Class A. Much of the debris had been cleaned up by now. All that was left of the MH is the bottom part. The upper half of the walls and the entire roof was blown right off the rig. Bits and pieces scattered everywhere. My heart goes out to the man who died, and to his family. RV Explosion news article Some pictures including from above

RV park near Stettler Alberta destroyed by ice flood

I just spotted this article in the news. An RV part west of Stettler, close to Red Deer Alberta was destroyed by an ice flood. I didn't see if there were any injuries or not. Many RVs were heavily damaged. RV park destroyed How awful....

RE: Truck camper window leakage

Welcome to the forum! :) Where is the window leaking? Is it coming in through the inside, backing up in the track and spilling in? I'm assuming this window is a slider that opens, or similar. If so, then removing the window and resealing will not cure it. A thorough cleaning of all places where water has access to should take care of it. These windows typically don't have drain holes as a house window. The frames are not hollow, therefore no need for internal drainage. They should have provisions for drainage from the inside of the track to the outside though, with perhaps a notch in the outside of the frame to allow it to run out. Or is it coming in around the outside of the frame? If so, then yes, the window needs to be removed, thoroughly cleaned up and resealed.

RE: Long arm of the law...

The appropiate sentence should be to spend one month the hottest one in Death Valley with only his swiming suit, no shoes, no pants, no shirt, no hat and a canteen of water only! Betya he would not do it again! navegator And a toothbrush and spit to clean up his vandalism....

RE: What happened to RV.NET?

"Bob's Your Uncle" First time I heard that was in the film Frenzy. :B Never saw the film, but the name suits me. I am Bob and also uncle to a bunch of kids. It was a good fit.
