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

RE: Liquid Wrench Dry Lube for Slideouts

I use a spray dry silicone lube that I buy at Walmart on any moving/joint friction surface. This includes slide tracks, gears, stabilisers, hitch jack, and power awning components.

RE: Visa & Wal Mart

I agree with you Sue, to me the 'tap & go' card is a recipe for disaster but then I'm not a techie by any means. I really like the security of the regular chip/pin cards. My bank now issues both Visa and Master Card credit cards with the same points perks so I think it's just a matter of time before before Visa relents on their retailer rates for premium cards which is where the issues lie. ...

RE: Visa & Wal Mart

Just about every store in the Montreal area (at least all the ones we shop at) use chip cards and require a PIN number or they cannot process the transaction. The only exceptions are the flash chip cards.

RE: What do you do when?

We do nothing. Been camping & rving for over 50 years and never had anything walk away! :C We camp 6-8 months a year.

RE: Other options than using leveling jacks

RE: Did you dump your refrigerator and pantry before crossing?

The discussion is now going around in circles and with that I believe this thread has run it's course. The OP has sufficient info to decide what he should do.

RE: Have you kite surfers at the lakes?

Thanks, that clears it up for members to reply. I had already begun deleting posts about kite surfing at some US locations no where near your route. Moderstor

RE: Smell from potable water.

My current water hose is 11 years old and it is being used 6-8 months a year. Typically rv type fresh water hoses never need changing unless they leak. I used to get odors on occasion during spring camping trips when some of the water sources haven't been used for awhile. I know that where we have our seasonal, I will get a slight bleach odor some years for a day or so from the sanitising of their fresh water storage tank and lines. The campground's sanitising process is mandated by NY state. On a side note, I haven't used a water filter on any of our rv's for almost 15 years now.
