RE: Gaspe Trip, Quebec

I am also thinking of a Gaspe trip but will drive a car and stay in motels. I do not speak French, would that be a problem? Also, would I need to make motel reservations or can I just "wing it"?

Victoria Palms in Donna, TX in the Rio Grande Valley has 100 suites in a motel setting. The suites are in their own section of the RV resort. Each suite has a separate bedroom, a living room, an eat in kitchen and full bathroom.

RE: D day, June 6, 1944 - where was Mexico

McAllen, TX is the location of the Texas War Memorial. The Memorial is very large and occupies ground on the east side of the new convention center. This is an outdoor memorial and is quite impressive. The story of the Mexican 201st Squadron is told in great detail on one of the many granite stones that comprise the memorial.

RE: We in input on a New Brunswick/Nova Scotia trip

I suggest staying overnight on PEI and not day tripping to it. I have been all over that area and drive times are slow as Matt stated.

RE: Water leak through Air Conditioner...

The very first thing to do is what Bobbo stated.

RE: Hydraulic Slide Will Not Extend Completely

Have you checked the hydraulic fluid reservoir to make sure it is full? If you can get to the slide mechanism look for a travel limit switch, which may need to be adjusted.

RE: Need help figuring out why my rig is overweight

I ordered a custom made cargo trailer a few years ago. It was delivered with an incorrect weight sticker. The sticker used the wrong axle rating to calculate GVWR. I called the factory and they sent me a new corrected sticker. A number of years ago I called the factory that built my travel trailer. The sun had faded my weight sticker to the point it could not be read. I asked for a new sticker. One was mailed to me. All was correct except the date of manufacture. It used the current date as the build date. I called the factory. I was told by the clerk who made the sticker that the date could not be changed as the machine spit out only the date the sticker was made. I have been to a number of RV factories and never seen a scale. I went to Google Earth and looked at the Grand Design factory in Middlebury. I did not see a scale. The take away from all of this is do not think that the stickers on an RV are always correct.

RE: Drury Suites Snowbird Rate RGV

I went to their web site and "booked" for the month of March. Using the rack rate but with a senior discount it was $2984 including taxes and fees from March 1 to March 31.

RE: Can't bring TT home because of neighbors parking in street?

Try parking your RV in the street. When they complain, tell them they have given you no choice. If they park in their driveways then you will too.

RE: Pioneer RV Resort, Padre Island, Corpus Christi, TX

I have stayed there, but many years ago. Very nice RV Park. What I did not like was that you could watch your RV rust away from the salt air in the early morning fog.

RE: Roanoke, VA to Chapel Hill, NC

Thanks guys. I have been down I-81 and I-77 many times, but never travelled US 220. Sometimes taking a US highway can be a big mistake and other times it works out well.

Roanoke, VA to Chapel Hill, NC

I will be taking a trip without the RV from Roanoke to Chapel Hill. My choices are I-81 to I-77 to I-74 to I-40 OR US 220 to I-40. My map program shows the Interstate route as 95 miles longer and one hour slower. For those of you who are familiar with this area which route do you suggest? Will US 220 really be faster? Is US 220 two or four lanes? Are there traffic lights and low speed areas in the small towns it passes thru?

RE: Fiberglass insulation that doesn't stay wet or attract mice?

Install Ultra Heat around the tanks too. Insulation does not create heat as you know. With Ultra Heat you can create heat and keep it in with the insulation you will add. I would not try and insulate every nook and cranny. I suggest creating a basement that will allow heated air to move around and keep water pipes warm.

RE: Rio Grande Valley question

Two parks with top notch facilities and large sites with lots of activities are Llano Grande In Mercedes and Victoria Palms in Donna. Both parks have new and old sections. The new sections are the ones you want.

RE: Mexican Gas Shortage

I am in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas 6 miles north of Reynosa, MX. The local Texas TV stations are now reporting this event and showed a sound bite of the MX President explaining why this is taking place.

RE: Current Texas Weather in The RGV

Weather Statistics for McAllen, TX show a normal high of 71 for Jan, 75 for Feb and 82 for Mar. For Ft Meyers, FL the numbers are 74, 77, and 80. Orlando, FL numbers are 71, 74, and 78. These numbers are from a statistical data base. They are not open to questions as they are facts. These are temperatures and do not include other factors that influence comfort such as humidity, rainfall, wind, biting insects, etc. If everyone liked the same thing almost all of us would be in one location. I tried FL, TX, AZ, CA and MX before I settled on a location that was right for me.

RE: Current Texas Weather in The RGV

Well said. There is a difference between climate and weather. Also a difference between weather patterns and weather.

Current Texas Weather in The RGV

Weather is always changing and a constant topic, but right now the Weather in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas is just about perfect. I have been here for 10 days and most of the time the highs have been in the 70's with no rain. We had a few windy days but the long range forecast is for more of the same weather.

RE: Baltimore and Washington

If on I-95 take the Key Bridge which is I-695 and is the eastern most outer Interstate loop around Baltimore.
