Land border closed to Canada

We open our land border to the U.S. to "non-essential" visitors so they can look after their owned property here in Canada but we can't do the same for our owned property we own in the U.S.,, sure we can fly over but we can't drive across in our RV's and other than protecting the airline industry I simply can't see how it's safer to stuff a couple of hundred people into a aluminum tube with a closed ventilation system opposed to me and my wife going through your border in our truck and driving down to Florida?? I actually sent an E-Mail to Biden reminding him on how we share the longest border in the world and we are the only people that go to the U.S. with money, health insurance and leave when we're supposed to not to mention that Canadians own over $15 billion worth of property in Florida alone and spend around $5 billion a year while we're there! I'm seriously considering selling my RV lot, let's see how long this post stays up,,

Hookin' the Honda,,,,

I have a Honda 3000ie genny that I use on my 50amp CC fiver' and I need some advise. The new fiver's receptacle is in the middle so I need to make a longer chord to reach from the back rack where it lives. An electrician made a 10' chord for me years ago that had the needed plug to go into the 30amp receptacle on the Honda and the other end has the 50 amp plug for the fiver, on the 50amp plug he jumped one of the four wires so the three from the genny's 30amp would work??? I guess?? I have a 30amp chord, could I not install the 30amp plug that fits the genny and plug the other end into my 30 to 50 amp dogbone??

Towing My Boat Behind My Fiver'

Looking for some opinions from those who have done this,,, i have a Dodge 3500 diesel dually with a 36' CC fiver that I travel from Ontario to Florida and I'm considering bringing my 20' inboard boat with me. I understand that triple towing is illegal in Georgia and Florida but I've seen so many doing it and have been told by many that the police don't bother snow-birds doing it. Again I'd like to hear your opinions,, thanks in advance!

House battery not charging

I have a Cedar Creek 36CKTS fiver' that I now see that the one 12V house battery seems not to be charging, as our fiver' is stationary and plugged in 24/7 while at our campsite I am at a loss as to why. If someone has any ideas also the proper way to diagnose it would be appreciated,,, Thanks in advance Red Green: Golfing is those who refuse to learn how to fish!!

RE: New Border Regulations

Regarding the negative comments towards snowbirds who did travel south I'd like to point out these thoughts,,,Frau Blücher and had to rent a cottage (at great expense) as we are "full-time RV'ers and our summer base closes at the end of April and "fat-man and little boy" (that's what I call trudope and ford as they are doing their level best to destroy our country from above) closed the border so we couldn't haul our fiver' down to our lot in Florida so as a result we are paying for property we own and are not allowed to use it so I suppose some would say boo-hoo to that! Had we put a second fiver to on our lot in Florida we would have done the same thing! I don't see (aside that our government supplements air Canada) how it was safer to allow 200+ people to fly down to Orlando opposed to Frau Blücher and I driving down I-75 in our truck stopping only for fuel, staying one night completely self-contained boon-docking in a Flying J! I'd also like to point out that I'm not denying that covid is a very big problem but we don't know ANYONE who has it both here or at our resort in Florida, I have spoke to several people on-line who did have it and compared it to a real bad cold but nothing like the Canadian government's portrayal of it as the new plague of our times also I can't see we snowbirds are posing that big a risk,, we are mostly older retirees who take our personal health seriously. Last spring when it appeared our resort went into full lock-down on our own and was in full compliance in Canada along with us isolating for two weeks! So with all this new "make it up as we go along" B.S the government is doing I e-mailed both "fat-man and little boy" to pay attention to the numbers of infected snowbirds returning this spring and see weather all this un-due interference into our personal lives was necessary!

RE: New Border Regulations

I'd LOVE to see the numbers on how many snowbirds contracted covid!! I don't believe we snowbirds are the problem as every other snowbirds I know both here in Canada and the USA went on full isolation when we first heard of this. We maintained distancing, stayed in small groups, wore masks ect,,,, The problem as I see it are the morons both here and the USA that gather shoulder to shoulder to $$$$$ and moan about some common sense precautions that in reality don't hamper our daily existence one bit! I called my local garage today to get a coolant flush done and as we in Ontario are once again in full lockdown we can't wait in the shops waiting room so they are going to pick up our truck and bring it back for us,,, where's the problem?? Also the one thing I hear from EVERYONE is "I'm not gonna' take the vaccine" for fear they will grow a third limb,,, give me strength,,, with that stupid attitude we'd still have polio!!

RE: New Border Regulations

Yeah I watched "Little Boy's" latest" video and what I find odd is that according to "Fat Man's" recent rant on how weekly 62.00+ people are flying into Pearson International in Toronto that aren't REQUIRED to follow quarantine protocols ( mind you we do ask them to politely do so,,,) but we Canadian snowbirds (oh by the way Frau Blücher and I don't know any of our friends either here or in Florida that have actually contracted covid) are being stopped from going to our hard earned winter vacation spots,, did I mention we don't know anyone that has covid???

RE: New Border Regulations

So it sounds to me that the guy flew down and tried to bring back his parents coach that they left down there last spring when "little man" {I call trudope little-boy and ford fat-man} sounded the ALL CANADIANS RETURN HOME call without thinking about how it would affect we snowbirds,,, according to the Canadian embassy I spoke to last spring while still in Florida {we stayed until the end of April with no covid infection nor to date has anyone else we know contracted this plague as of today} that as long as we have valid passports we CANNOT be denied entry!

Fridge Swap-out

I have a 2012 Forest River Cedar Creek 36CKTS that has dumbetic four door rv fridge that I want to replace with a residential fridge with an ice-maker like my other CC Daydreamer has. My questions are,,, -has anyone done this and how did it go, -as the fridge in this fiver is elect/propane and only has one 12V battery and my Daydreamer with the residential has four 6V batteries can I assume the existing converter and battery won't support a residential fridge? -whatever other things I might not expect, Thanks in advance! Red Green: Be generous with the duct tape, you know; spare the duct tape, spoil the job.
