RE: Pink Anti-freeze

Not all pink antifreezes are created equal. I've had pink antifreeze only turn to slush in the toilet after a week with temps down to -30/-35. Personally I have never seen it freeze solid.

RE: Anything stolen from locked compartments.

In all my years of camping/rving I've never locked anything and we've never lost anything! :C

RE: Those that store their campers..when you pulling them out!

We use our's down south until the end of March when we bring it home. I winterize it and then leave it winterized until the second week of May. We then start 'summer' camping until mid-October.

RE: Mailing weapons to Alaska from the lower 48

Yup and a discussion that will go outside the OP's topic so I will close this one as the OP has received his reply.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Been following the Alaska 2013/14 and now 2015. Going this year, learned a lot from post from all 3 years. But this year, as in the last two, the constant posting, re posting and re posting of the same names, with an addition each time of one or two new names, sure adds a lot of pages of (IMO) useless information to a great source of travel information. Richard Maybe I can help with this. As CA Traveler posts a new list with added names, I'll try to kill the old ones. ... Eric (Moderator)

RE: Cdn. Snowbird Health Insurance good experience

Our $7/day is based upon me being 66 and my wife being 63 although she looks 45 (just in case she reads this!) :B

RE: Cdn. Snowbird Health Insurance good experience

Glad to read a good news story for a change. We've been very fortunate so far not to require use of our travel insurance.

RE: Mail while snowbirding

I don't know what the rules are now for corporations, I've been retired for 7 years. :C You are correct with providing an accountant permission to handle income tax issues directly, that is what we have done. It's essentially a Power of Attorney for taxation declaration and processing; I have one for Revenue Canada and another for Revenu Quebec. I also access my home (Montreal) voicemail a couple times a day when we are in South Carolina. Although I have never had any calls from Revenue Canada, I have had Revenu Quebec call and I was glad I got a heads up. ... Eric

RE: Mail while snowbirding

Put it on hold. Nothing important comes in the mail anymore (for us). Same for us. We've done everything online for several years now, banking, taxes etc...; really no need for mail over 3-4 months time span. You have been lucky! Last year I got a call from Revenue Canada In March while in Tucson enjoying dinner at a restaurant.demanding a payment arrangement for $8,000 in unpaid taxes that they said I owed for the previous year's tax return (needless to say it soured my appetite for the meal!), I file electronically and a T-slip from from an employer got lost in the mail to RC. They had sent a letter to my home a couple of months earlier. As you probably know, Revenue Canada doesn't communicate to us electronically via E-mail or the net. In the end it cost $125 for interest payments after they admitted to the screw up, I could continue to fight it but it's not worth the hassle One reason why I try to have brown envelopes flagged, scanned and forwarded! I'm actually fortunate to have an accountant that handles my income taxes and any issues. We're usually back home by April when I get to see what's in the mail. When I mentioned doing taxes online I was thinking of my property taxes that come due in January of each year.

RE: Payment info needed before price negotiation?

Definitely not the norm. I suspect the salesman wanted to understand how committed you were before doing a bunch of work and then perhaps going elsewhere. I would just walk away or perhaps place a phone call to whoever is the top person at the dealership, i.e. the owner, and see if there is another perspective.

RE: how bad is keystone?

Keystone is really no better or worse than just about every other travel trailer manufacturer with the exception of some maybe higher end units. They are pretty much all put together using similar manufacturing methods and with the same appliances/accessories. I've had a Forest River trailer and now have a Cruiser RV trailer apart from a Holiday Rambler coach. I would not hesitate to buy a Keystone product if I were shopping and found something I liked.

RE: Length of stay for Canadians in US - 240 days?

So if I have this correct....most agree that if we have 121 days using the formula provided for 2012,2013,2014 then we do not have to file the form. 2014 we were in the USA for 66 days? The form is quite confusing, even though some said it was easy to understand, maybe it is...I just don't get it yet! No you do not need to fill out the form. You only need to fill out the form if you have a total number greater than 182 using the 3-year formula. ... Eric

RE: Gary went boom

Gary, whenever I feel like doing something like climbing on my house roof, I just lie down until I feel better! :E Good luck with the leg; you'll be right back to normal for camping season. ... Eric

RE: Towing With Refrigerator On Propane

Have had several RV's over the years and always drove or towed with the fridge on. They are designed to do so.

RE: How long sewer hose?

I use a 20' and keep another 10' as spare; have needed it several times over the years.
