RE: Ford 550 Verses Dodge Ram 5500 Diesel

No personal experience with any/either of your options. So, this might seem silly, but if you fire them both up, and put the engines under some acceleration stress, which one runs quieter? At idle, which one? At slower neighborhood speeds? Freeway cruising? I'd choose the quieter one of the two/group. Just sayin'...

RE: 2008 Coachmen Freelander 2130QB question

Hook up a dirty (non-potable) hose to it, open your black tank valve, and turn on the hose. So is it usual that the flush has a different size hose attachment? And how would I be sure that, that is infact the flush? I would hate to introduce city pressure to something that isn't suppose to be pressurized. No, not usually. But possible. If the manufacturer made the black flush a 5/8" adapter, and the main city fill a 3/4" connection, assuming a higher flow rate for your sinks, shower, whatever. And a slower "rinse" rate for the black tank. They may have designed it that way, to keep you from confusing your potable hose with your non-potabe flush hose? Again, who knows? However, it might also be a second city water connector, with a check valve, that is a smaller size, for a narrower diameter hose. 3/4" versus 5/8"? Maybe the coach manufacturer wanted to give some flexibility in case you didn't have the correct diameter hose handy. Ultimately, you could contact the manufacturer and ask, if you're not game to try pressurizing (gently) it first.

RE: I'm buying one (surprise)

Water intrusion in the roof and walls is probably the most common problem. Particularly in the cab over bunk area. Have a good look there, and get the roof examined for cracked, missing, and dried out caulking around the seams of everything up there.

RE: Good Sam Roadside Assistance App

I just checked. Same result. I had tried it a few years ago, and it didn't work well for me, so I uninstalled it. It wasn't in my library either.

RE: THOR Quantum 25RC Rear Stabilizer Jack issues

We have a 2019 THOR Quantum that has two rear electrical stabilizing jacks. The Right side works, the Left side doesnt but can be manually raised/lowered if needed. I looked at the wiring below the rig to the main header for the jacks and noticed one of the wiring connections (yellow wire) was burnt and melted the snap connect fitting. If feel this is the reason behind the Left side not working though I'm not an electrician or claim to be one. Is this something that I should attempt to fix or should I take it to an RV shop and have them fix it as I'm wondering why it burnt out and is it a fire hazard concern as the other red wire and connection is looking like it too is starting to discolor to the other wire fitting. Thanks and any advise is greatly appreciated. Rey in Colorado Got warranty left? I'd get a shop to do it under warranty, if possible. If not, I might tackle it myself if it wasn't a humidex of 106F here right now. If it just needs a splice and a connector of some sort. Can you see how the right side is wired and duplicate it?

RE: Mercedes C-Class

Just do an internet search for "Ford chassis E350/E450/F53 versus MB Sprinter diesel". This topic has been beaten to death on the internet on various forums for years now. You have some googling and reading to do. :B I'll do your first search for you.... https://www.google.com/search?sxsrf=ALeKk02NOL4mM8xpdLW6CHxtavOvLrOj_w%3A1594393249871&ei=oYIIX4XYNPasytMP9dq92A4&q=ford+chassis+vs+mercedes+sprinter+&oq=ford+chassis+vs+mercedes+sprinter+&gs_lcp=CgZwc3ktYWIQDDIGCAAQFhAeOgQIABBHOgQIABAeOgYIABAIEB46BAghEApQxmRYi7EBYIzLAWgAcAF4AIABcYgBrxSSAQQxOC45mAEAoAEBqgEHZ3dzLXdpeg&sclient=psy-ab&ved=0ahUKEwjFrKna-cLqAhV2lnIEHXVtD-sQ4dUDCAs I prefer the Sprinter, and have had both Ford and Chevy, in prior RVs.

RE: How many miles a day can we go?

Also agree with Drew on interstate choice up the east coast.

RE: How many miles a day can we go?

Considering the variety of answers so far, I'd say "it depends" is probably the right one. Good luck with it, and don't go beyond your limit. You'll know when you reach it.

RE: How many miles a day can we go?

As far as you can safely drive in a day. I've done over 700 miles in a very long day getting home after a couple of weeks out. I've also done the same in the snow season trying to beat the weather and get through a window of dry roads heading home. You do what you can handle.

RE: Paid Caravans to Alaska Worth it?

These are some examples of the guided tours, duration, cost, and amenities. I haven't done any, but some do look interesting. You could "shadow" one of the Alaska tours (there are 2 annually) and just pay your own way, if you were so inclined. The link is a subset of the WITclub.com website for Winnebago Owners, and has listed some prior tours. FYI. https://wgoadventures.com/archive/ EDIT: Just noticed the prices are gone as the events are over. Sorry. Some of the ones we looked at a few years back, were in line with those mentioned.

RE: Longer closure gathering momentum...

What about Canadian Full Timers? Similar problems to snowbirds? Canada's winters aren't usually hospitable to many of our rigs.

Is Radium in there? I'm only familiar with Liard and heard of the Fairmont Group.

Full Timing in Canadian Winter if the Border is still CLOSED

Anyone on here a full timer that's figured out how they will full time in Canada this winter, considering not all rigs do well in below freezing temperatures for extended periods. Plugged in with tank heaters, and space heaters? Head west to the coast for somewhat warmer temps? Both? I mention it because the US/CAN border may still be closed. If it's opened before November, the point becomes more moot, as most would probably return to following the warmer weather as it moves southwards.

RE: Longer closure gathering momentum...

I hope the border stays closed as long as it takes to minimize spread. I dont know how long that should be, thats why i trust the professionals. Canada currently has good control of this virus. Its important to remember that corona is the enemy. We are all in this together. Agree, and since it's not going away any time soon, time to start planning options for the winter get away? Or, not? The linked article suggests that the "essential" travelers aren't subject to the Quarantine Act, which seems a bit risky. Kinda like no screening at the airports early on.

RE: Longer closure gathering momentum...

You're more likely to die from it here than there. 2 to 1. Per capita, of course. Just open the **** border. I don’t know where you’re getting your numbers from, but once again you’re wildly wrong there neighbour. The US has had about 130k deaths from COVID-19 out of a population of 328.8 million people, so that’s 0.00039598 % Canada has had 8,642 deaths from COVID-19 out of a population of 37.59 million people, so that’s 0.0002299 %. That means the death rate, per capita, is 58 % higher in the US than it is in Canada, not 200 % higher in Canada as you stated. That puts your numbers in error by about a factor of 400 %. Read response to Orion. I apologize for pulling your legs.

"You're more likely to die from it here than there. 2 to 1. Per capita, of course. Just open the **** border." I think you have that backwards, if you think that you are more likely to die from Covid in Canada than in the US! Their per capita deaths per 1m is 397 and Canada is 229! Lower is good! I know. Just trying to keep the thread alive with more silliness. (is that a word?)

RE: Longer closure gathering momentum...

I, for one, don't like the border closed. As this whole mess unfolded, many of us Canucks began to realize it's not so much about public safety as it is about people control and government over reach/power. When I first started to read that post I was waiting for the punch line, then I realized you were being serious. The whole point of isolation is to slow the spread of the virus to the point where the medical community can handle those infected. You may have heard of the term “flatten the curve”? If you look at the infection rate per capita on each side of the border and let those numbers sink in, you might just change your mind. "the infection rate per capita" is another meaningless stat when you consider population densities here and there, and the number of large cities thay have versus the number of large and densely populated ones up here. How many infections require medical attention? How many hospitalizations? ICU visits? Morgue? That's why I suggested there are too many factors and too much ambiguity in terminaology, and the interpretations of the data they're collecting for there to ever be a right, one size fits all, answer, besides herd immunity and flattening the curve by attrition. We're chasing out tails endlessly on how to deal with this, and the experts can't even agree on mask or no mask. Just keep the highest risk people out of harm's way for a little longer, and lets get on with it. We've been nauseated from Covid19 for almost 6 months now, and I just think it's time to stick our finger down our throat, and get it over with. I still respect your opinions. FWIW. I bid you all adieu. Have a nice weekend, wherever you may be. I hear what your saying, but as my grandpa used to say, you've got your shoes on the wrong way around there. In the US the percentage of population that lives in a urban area in the US is about 80.7%. so then about 19.3 % of the population lives in a rural area. In Canada the percentage of population that lives in a urban area is about 81.4 %. so then about 18.6 % of the population lives in a rural area. So in fact Canada has a higher percentage of the population living in an urban area. Understood, and that's where the majority of the cases are being discovered. Their pace of testing is a half again as many as us. If we kept pace with them for testing ourselves, at the same rate, we'd probably look about the same or possibly a bit worse. It all depends on who you ask or where you get your stats. Type of test, who is performing them, what's the rate of inconclusives, false + or -, it can skew the numbers. Their total tests performed would cover our entire population. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ I thought I unsubscribed from this thread??? “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.” Your numbers fail your argument again neighbour. The US (as of July 1) has tested about 103k / million of population. Canada has tested about 73k / million of population. The US has therefore tested about 50 % (per capita) more people than Canada but has nearly THREE times the number of cases (per capita again) than Canada does. You're more likely to die from it here than there. 2 to 1. Per capita, of course. Just open the **** border.
