RE: What do you do to your house?

When we're gone months at a time, we set battery powered digital timers throughout the house, shut the hot water heater off, turn the water off, set the heat (fully electric) on low and stop the mail. Set the alarm on and leave. We have a lawn service in the summer and a snow service in the winter. As well, my neighbor across the street uses our driveway for one of his 3 cars when we are away. Our kids live in the area and one of them will usually come by to check on the house now and then. Neighbor also has a key.

RE: How many amps to run AC

I cannot run mine on the 20-amp from my garage. As mentioned, if you have 30 amp you will be fine.

RE: what's the worst thing that could happen

If it were me, I'd take a hammer and break something just so I could get to curse at it! :B Actually we've had several very long trips with nothing going wrong but then again in the spring of 2013 everything went to heck in a hand basket. We were driving our Class A coach and the cruise control stopped, the check engine light kept coming on, the dash lights went out and the monitor for the rear cameras went out. Finally the plug to my Jeep lights dropped a pin and I lost turn signals.

RE: What do you leave in RV

We do this all the time especially when we come home but leave the rv down south for a couple months. The only thing we have ever removed was perishable food. Everything else stays including cereal, soups and whatever products with shelf lives beyond our return. Never had an issue doing this at least the last 15 years that I can remember.

Happy that you enjoyed your trip. I was born along the Gaspe coast, it's a beautiful region. :C

RE: wheatley provincial park

Where is it?? If you have to ask, you obviously can't answer the OP's question.

RE: Sparker on ONE burner not working

I found it easier to just use a BBQ lighter.

RE: Suction cups on fiberglass side

I used suction cups (dent pullers) to support the Gen-turi pipe up the side of our Class A for years without ever any damage. It would be there for a week at a time.

RE: Pitch on slide outs?

I've had three different rv's and they were all built with a slight slope on the slideout roof to the outside, not towards the trailer.

RE: going into Canada with treated wood steps

Not an issue, we travel with treated lumber that I use for leveling blocks and stabiliser 'feet' all the time; have been doing so for years. Whenever I am asked about firewood, I say no but always mention my leveling blocks.

RE: Where to put generators?

When we had our 5th wheel, I always kept my Honda 2000 in the front overhang storage; never had fumes.

RE: Cut open underbelly

Another vote for Grilla tape. I've had it under mine where I needed to cut in and it's lasted 2 years so far. I've towed in both heavy rains and snow; it's still there.

RE: AT&T cellphone coverage In Nova Scotia and currency question

It's funny how progress has sent us backwards. I'm in my late 60's, traveled and driven worldwide, hiked & camped throughout North America and it's only in the last 10 years that we've carried a cell phone; how did we ever manage?:E

RE: Avg cost to have 8600 GSVR moved 478 miles?

Buddy of mine had his 5th wheel moved from just outside Atlanta (Ga) to Myrtle Beach Travel Park (SC) and it was $700 in 2014. Don't know if that was expensive or not, his company picked up the tab.

RE: RV Share - Feedback/Thoughts

If I had to do it to continue rving, I would have to simply give up rving. The whole notion of liabilities, maintenance, wear & tear is one thing but the big issue is someone else using my space.

RE: are all rv toilets macerator ??

No macerator in our trailer system. Our Class A had a macerator but it was an add-on at the black tank flush as are most, if not all, macerators.

RE: Had an oh **** moment!

As mentioned, they are more to reduce movement when walking around in the trailer, you need real wheel chocks to stop rolling. I actually tossed mine in the recycle bin years ago when we had our 5th wheel.

RE: Electric stabs questions

I lower them until they both touch the ground then hold the button until I see the trailer/frame slightly start to move. I'll often 'reset' them again after the slides are put out and we've been in the trailer for a night. This. Personally, I find I don't like the Lippert electric stabs. The next TT will have manual jacks. I hear you! Given a choice, I'd have manual jacks but the trailer came with the electric ones and they work 'ok'. ... Eric
