RE: “Pathetic quality”: RV dealers are fed up...

I call that the “Wally World Effect”. People buy based on low price then complain about the ‘junk’ the manufacturers are producing.

RE: Vax Passports

Last update. You are still at risk to catch, and spread covid as if you were not vaccinated. Per the CDC.This statement seems to imply the risk is equal if you are vaccinated or not.... and I understand that is false. Catch? Yes, but the difference between how it impacts vax’d and un vax’d people is HUGE.

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

What was posted here should go in the 'Covid Personal Experience' thread. (Mod) I can't find that thread. --------------- Thread: Covid Personal Experiences (Mod) Don, it is the ‘sticky’ thread directly above this one.

RE: Shuttle bus conversion

Actually, ALL of the refusals I’ve personally seen happen were in the US. Cars & trucks are legally required to meet certain standards and bear proof of same, that’s the VIN plate inside the drivers door jamb. Nobody will ever ask you if your car is legal because they know it was built to FMVSS standards. With RV’s it’s the same thing, when it’s a unit manufactured by one of the mainstream manufacturers compliance with the applicable life safety requirements is a given. When it’s a former School or Shuttle Bus, cargo van or trailer, there’s no such assurances.

RE: Shuttle bus conversion

With the way things are these days regarding concern over liability places are starting to pay more attention to the legal side of things. Presuming it’s presentable and the conversion is done legally, with the proper inspections and certification, etc., it would come down to each park owners choice. I’ve seen several school bus / cargo van / trailer / #vanlife type conversions refused admission. YMMV ……..

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

We need to get more people vaccinated so people like Steveh27 can breathe more easily. There are a lot of people in his situation. That is likely to be the single biggest nut to crack. Have a read over this article.

RE: Engine blew white smoke died then generator

True story. There used to be a fuel company who advertised "You can trust...."(Description of their company shirt). (SIC) One of their stations got caught topping off their tanks.... with a garden hose. Unfortunately the modern version of that story is topping off the tanks with ethanol. Google how much corn liquor the US produces now versus a couple of years ago. Guess where all that extra production is going?

RE: Vanlifers are parting ways with their vans after Covid

“#vanlife” has very little do with a vagabond lifestyle, but a LOT to do with monetized social media channels / sites.

Now here’s a potential game-changer, PCR tests in your home! Co-Diagnostics Inc’s Eikon PCR device.

RE: Favorite foods to make bulk and freeze for the road?

I make chili, soups, and cabbage rolls, and now that I can store more, I'm looking for easy, quick, delicious menu items I can make at home, and pack for the road. Whadya got? I’m a sucker for tomato-based sauces and Italian food in general so in my case I make Marinara sauce to my taste, then freeze it in single serving ‘sauce-cicles’. If I’m travelling solo (as I usually am) one makes a meal, otherwise one per person. To that I add whatever pasta, rice, potato I want any any meat that’s convenient. It’s surprisingly good over a crumbled burger patty & fries, rice & meatballs (premodern at home also), a ham steak & boiled patties, etc, etc, the list goes on forever. Best of all, however I want to serve it, I can have a home-cooked (literally) meal in 15 minutes while on the road.

RE: Engine blew white smoke died then generator

White smoke is typically the result of one of a number of bad things, however there is only a couple of things that could afflict 2 different engines. That is water in the fuel, enough to overwhelm the fuel water separator on the rig’s engine. It’s hard to believe that’s the issue though considering how high the pickup for the genset is.

RE: Why won't the borders allow rvs across?

I have tried to tell the government that rvs should be allowed across the border. We are in homes on wheels. We have food, washroom facilities, and entertainment but instead the USA will allow people to pile into an airplane from Canada and go to the United States but being isolated in an RV isn't good enough. I tried to get a petition going, but it went nowhere. Any ideas? Understand. the gov isn't really following the science. They pick and choose what they want to happen. Notice tens of thousands of illegal aliens cross, and are shipped all over the country. But you can't drive your RV across. You alone in your RV are too much of a hazzard. Pardon me for introducing logic into this mess, but you’re saying the US government is actively allowing illegal immigrants free passage to drive over the border now? not drive. But walk. they are crossing by the tens of thousands, and are getting free air, and bus travel to hundreds of US cities, at our expense, and none of them have been vaccinated. It's on the news every day. Wanna guess whay there is a surge is covid cases. Yep. it is being imported thru illigals. So as I suspected you’d say, the government doesn’t ‘let them cross’, they are illegals and according to US law, they must be treated just like anyone else suspected of a crime they are entitled to due process. There is also the possibility of claiming refugee status. Actually, BTW, most of the COVID-19 cases currently are in areas with very little in the way of illegal immigrants. Currently Louisiana is the worst, with Arkansas and Mississippi not far behind.

RE: Must I have a toad with a 27' Class C?

I’ve only been at this for a little over 3 decades so bear with my, I’m still learning. If I need to get something or go somewhere the odd time I didn’t want to break camp, the cost of a rented car or taxi (now Uber, Lyft, etc, etc) which comes to you, is nothing compared to the cost of dragging a toad around ‘just in case’……. In fact when I do make a day trip somewhere, I far prefer to take m/h, I’ve never yet seen a toad with recliners, a kitchen and washroom. YMMV.

RE: Why won't the borders allow rvs across?

Two days ago, I phoned CBP and had a bit of a conversation with a supervisor (I was seeking info on flying from Canada to the U.S.). Point Roberts is a small U/S peninsula south of B.C that has no land access from continental U.S. and can't be accessed by vehicle without driving from Canada. Because it relied largely on Canadians to support it's small businesses and continental U.S. citizens can't get to it by driving, it has literally been abandoned. They can't even solve that conundrum. Unless you have first hand knowledge to the contrary, Point Roberts is in no different situation than the State of Alaska. Transiting Canada to travel between landlocked areas is, and always has been permitted.

RE: Why won't the borders allow rvs across?

When you are talking about some thing like border crossing the rules and regulations must be a ‘one size fits all’ type of arrangement. They cannot say blue cars can cross and red cars cannot. Likewise they cannot say pickups can cross but only if they are towing an RV.

RE: can this possibly be true? 150 amp hours $46.51 cdn

So tossing less than what some people single bet is at least to me, not foolish. I'm eager to hear your analysis. As a minor update, I got as far as the ‘checkout’ and saw that the shipping (based on my address) was C$7.99 (~US$10), so for giggles I changed my address to that of my daughter’s place on the Wet Coast (4,000 miles away), surprise, the shipping was still the same. Finally I changed the address again to that of my place in Florida, guess what? Yup, the shipping was still the same amount…… It’s possible they have hundreds of warehouses across the globe ……. Or not …..
