RE: making dinette bed bigger

Personally I would be looking for another floorplan that provides a comfortable bed for you. There are lots of Class C's out there.

RE: Propane tank recertification

How old are your current tanks? For safety sake, it might be in your best interest to get new tanks if they are past their expiry date. I see your camper is a 2004 - probably if the tanks have never been replaced, it might be time.

RE: Sights along Lake Superior

Don't forget the big goose at Wawa. Last time we were there it was badly in need of a paint job and funds were being raised. Hope that has happened by now. It is a pleasant stop for a coffee or lunch break. BTW - the big goose is a Canada Goose in case you didn"t know.

RE: Ford V10 Winterize/additive?

Our B+ is stored over the winter. We always add stabilizer to the gas, top up the propane tank and take it out about every month for a short run. So far, never a problem.

RE: Out of the blue....

I would like to suggest that those of you who love having friendly RVers stay at your place, should become hosts via Boondockers Welcome. It is a great organization and we have stayed with some wonderful people who are happy to not only accommodate you, but provide local information. Have a look at Boondockerswelcome.com

RE: Down to Road trek?

We too are struggling with the decision of going from a B+ to a B van. We love all the room and huge bathroom in our current unit + with having a Murphy bed, we have extra space during the day. The problem is we still enjoy the convenience of a tow car but the hooking/unhooking and added driving stress are becoming a concern. DH has Parkinsons so some chores are becoming more difficult. Our biggest concern with a further downsize (we used to have an A class)is bathroom and shower facilities. If we could find a B van with a reasonable bathroom, it would work for us. We could handle the small space for the convenience of less stressful driving. This getting older is NOT fun!

RE: Downloading at Campground

When we had our truck camper, we usually left it on the truck. We would do some hard hiking or bicycling, come back and take showers. This renewed us and we felt presentable to go shopping or out for supper, whatever. Reloading was a bit of a chore for us as we had max. 1 inch of clearance on each side between the camper and the box. We got good at it, but sometimes it was a challenge getting lined up etc.

RE: Towing Jeep Trailhawk

We tow a 2016 Cherokee Trailhawk with no problems. We had to have a Mopar wiring harness installed at our expense ($800 in Canada). The other thing you have to be sure of is that your vehicle has Active Drive II. I don't know a lot about this, but we came close to buying a different model and by chance discovered it was Active Drive I and apparently it cannot be towed. Check carefully in the owner's manual - DO NOT trust the sales person - they are only trying to make a sale and often do not know anything about towing. It cost us $3000 to set up our Jeep for towing. If we hadn't invested this money in it, we would have got rid of it. We do not particularly enjoy this vehicle but are stuck with it for now. Do your homework!

RE: Ford Nugget

Looks interesting but that big bed sure takes up a lot of space. I think we will stick with our Murphy bed which only takes up valuable floor area at night time. I do like the size of the new van though - always trade offs!

RE: New member with used class c

Georgia will not be real warm in February, BUT it will be better than NYS. We have been to Twin Oaks - it is an OK spot.

Cheap Gas along 401

Does anyone have experience going to the native gas stations just off the 401 Exit 556 near Belleville. All I know is that stations on the Reserve are open to the general public but I have not heard of anyone actually using one of these stations. Advice?

RE: Invisibrake or Stay-In-Play Duo ??

We have used Invisibrake for several years - no problems. Only thing we are not happy about is ours was installed under the driver's seat of our Jeep Cherokee. The box does not quite fit entirely under the seat and takes up floor space for a passenger in the back seat. We do not have passengers too often and when we do, I sit there so as to avoid ay damage that might happen to the unit. Your CRV might have more room to house the unit.

Quebec Route Advice

We would welcome some advice with routing through Quebec. We want to get from Hwy. 401 in Ontario to the Saguenay district. We want to avoid Montreal as much as possible so are thinking going around the south side and picking up either Rte. 20 or 30 up to Quebec City might be best. The least stressful routing would be great. I heard recently that a new bridge has opened around Montreal but I have no idea where it is. Can someone from the area make some recommendations? Please!

RE: Mayan Temples Trip - Safe?

Times are changing (and not always for the better). I think a lot depends on your own confidence and comfort level. Things happen everywhere - doesn't matter where you are. You can be in the wrong place at the wrong time anywhere.

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

I think putting your left turn signal on indicates it is safe to pass - we saw this regularly while traveling in Mexico. Don't think I would trust American drivers to know the meaning though.

RE: Leaving Trailer Hooked Up

It sounds to me like you have good plans. My heart goes out to everyone in the area. I just can't imagine how scary things must be. Stuff can be replaced, take care of yourselves and family. We will be following the situation on the Weather Channel.

RE: Arctic fox goes on 2,000-mile journey from Norway to Canada

Saw this on the TV this morning. Too bad the transmitter /signal is gone. Would have been interesting to see where else this little fox goes.

RE: Gaspe Trip, Quebec

Thanks for the answers. My French is non existent as I took Spanish in High School and College. If I go it will be in either August or Sept. Vacancies will be better after August 15th when the kids go back to school.

RE: Gaspe Trip, Quebec

Most of the people working in the tourist industry speak enough english to serve you. As for reservations it depends on the time of year. Remember asking with a smile goesa long way. I have also found that when communicating with someone who is trying really hard to speak English, they appreciate being complimented on their efforts. I usually also say that your English is so much better than my French (which is grade 9 variety only) and that brings a smile and laughter.

RE: Another bad RV wreck, driver dead. Montreal.

This is disturbing - we are planning on taking that ferry this Fall. It would seem most likely a brake problem. How sad. Also amazing how "destroyed" the RV was.
